The HM-40 Missile Base in Key Largo, FL was part of US military defense during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The base was in service from 1965 - 1979.
The base was in service from 1965 - 1979. The grounds now lay vacant as nature reclaims and my team of adventurepunks and I explore what remains; and battle the billion-deep, blood-thursty battalion of buzzing mosquitoes and the taught webs tended by arch arachnids.
After snapping this shot I turned to piss. Looking down at my legs it appear I was wearing fishnet stocking. Mosquitoes clung to every inch of exposed flesh. I slapped my leg, a puff of them buzzed about. I realized the thousand mosquitoes dining on me now were nothing to the billion that have us in their crosshairs. The only option was to run and not slow down.
