Day 2, The Entryway: 31 Days of Halloween 2015

We’re back and we have a door to go through, so without waiting longer, we headed insight at nightfall. With our technical advisor in the van, there were five of us heading in. We might divide and conquer after a while, but we want to get the lay of the land first. The first thing…
