For those keeping up on our six pack construction, this is to let you know we have been making serious moves! Towers have started to spring up everywhere, more concrete is being poured at the summit, and extensive digging has begun at the base! Things are moving smoothly folks. I hope you are all as excited as we are for this great new addition to Hunter! Stay tuned for more!

Incase You Were Wondering...

The lift construction is going smoothly! I went up D-Lift today, and armed with my IPhone, I snapped a photo of Hellgate, with no lift towers!

The second IPhone shot is of the Quad base terminal, it's just about gone!

Most of the towers are down, the remaining towers will be removed by way of helicopter. Stay tuned for photos of that!
