    It sure tells a story…I have one about a shoe too.
    The Nafta Cookers ( up to 900 Celcius ) at Shell Pernis, needed maintenance quit often. ( Shut Down ) Before restart we always have to check, no one is anymore inside. With a next stop, we found a shoe in it, with fear in my body I checked it the was a burned body in.. brrrr.

  • OMG really???? I once saw Shell burn contaminated oil or whatever it was, after a shutdown. That was some fire! I wonder how that shoe survived….

    What a wonderful find it sure tells a story.
    it sounds quiet an adventure just getting it.I hope you had company and not on your own.

  • My husband and I take Urbex trips together, its very exciting.
    This one is especially funny, because when trying to approach the building from the backsite, we had to crawl through a lot of mud. And I lost my boot while doing that, it got sucked in the mud. So when I spotted this shoe….I couldnt resist LOL
