Down, Down, Down! Car!


"It had the slowness of a Mexican wave: I was down as soon as I saw the car as was Marlon. Strangely Brown, another explorer of experience, hit the deck as soon as he saw us react. Alex, a friend of mine, and first time urban explorer, was slower but quickly got into the spirit of it when he realised what was happening. Unfortunately Tom was loitering at the back and was in full sight of the car as it was passing and hadn’t realised what was going on. Four urban explorers turned and hissed (because shouting would’ve been a dead giveaway): "DOWN! DOWN! CAR!""
