Tonight, on the Budd Zone...

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Budd Zone.
Here is an ancient chariot of the time when this zone was created
Here we enter the mysterious Stumphouse Tunnel, a tunnel created in the 1850's for the Blue Ridge Rail Line. Created by simple hand tools and the sweat of hundreds of immigrant laborers, it was originally meant to be 5,863 feet long. But the harsh conditions allowed only 200 feet to be tunneled a month, and in 1859, the project ran out of money. The Civil War and following reconstruction ended any prospects of the tunnel's completion.In the 1940's Dr Miller from Clemson University used the tunnel to make blue cheese, but this was moved to the University when the process conditions could be recreated. But the real reasons could be much more mysterious...
Today the tunnel is the most visited historic site in South Carolina. With a flash, we light it up and continue our journey.
This is our only hope of escapeThe tunnel seems inviting enough, but that is about to change...
But wait! A mysterious skylight appears further down the tunnel!
A ghostly apparition, perhaps a lost worker searching for the end of the tunnel?
A man who appears to walk through walls
A mysterios box, known to speak to people on nights with a full moon
A strange light that leads people away, perhaps driving them to madness!
Can people really disapear in a flash of light?
And finally, do cave creatures really exist in the form of energy? It's all part, of the Budd Zone....
*Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do.....*
