some place cool to go visit is the fort richardson national park in Texas(whoop!) biggest military installation in the WORLD between 1865 and 1886, I think, open for 21 years. has an enourmous hospital we got to see the wards the dispensary, get this they had an ORIGINAL, and FULLY OPERATIONAL MAGNETO!!! I've never seen one with my own eyes except in books. it was an early electric shock treatment device for anxiety and pain relief. IT WORKED! the original copper windings were still in place the wire was a little damaged but still awesomeness. and they had a magazine with 4 foot thick walls that was designed to implode if the ammuntion lit. we saw the remains of a jail, really cramped. calvary quarters with straw beds, rather comfy. something rather funny is that the latrines, the buildings long lost to time have so much waste underneath them that they give off heat to this day. you can pick it up from SPACE! if you have infrared cameras. and it was a beautiful place with enourmous sandstone formations. someplace cool to visit if you ever get the chance. very cool
