  1. I’ve had a couple such places, over the decades. The last one was a cosy, wild, overgrown area which I later discovered had been set aside because of fear there might be radioactivity in the area. I wasn’t afraid of any danger (I know the physics, I can do the math), but the fact that this was a much more widely known “wild” area kinda took the shine off of it.
