There’s a secret in the swamp and it’s a big one. Roosting in a 180 foot-deep hole is the largest solid rocket booster ever built. When I say large, I mean big – really big: 10 stories tall and about 20 feet wide. This was a rocket that was originally intended to carry men to the moon, but it never made it out of the tomb that still conceals it.
Take a walk with me and be prepared to see something truly amazing. It’s a long walk, about 10 miles. And no, we can’t drive. There are steel barricades across the road and they are securely locked. I know who has the key. I’ll tell you about him later. For now, we have to hike it because he’s nowhere in sight.
