Darn - I was thinking Australia - should have guessed that. I'm thinking Stillkit's challenge is Iron Mountain storage in PA?

No, not Pennsylvania.

Is it an Iron Mountain facility - like in West VA...if so, we'd just have to guess all their sites unless something specific in the pic will point us to the right place?

There are lots of underground storage facilities, there's a huge one in Kansas City with miles of underground roads. Low humidity and constant cool temperature.

It's Kansas City. There are several around there, but this one is the Sub-Tropolis.

If you ever get around there, it's worth a tour into one of them. They are old limestone mines and some of them have over a mile of usable space and more not being used.

I was in this one once, at the farthest warehouse, when the power went off. OOOOO! It's gets DARK a mile inside a hill!

Yep the Iron Mountain one in PA is limestone also - looks identical to me. They have 1k acres with office and everything - all with exposed limestone walls. Pretty wild. Some pretty cool and famous things stored there, too. Here's an old article about it: Region's basement stores our stuff

Cool! I've been to Butler County numerous times and never knew that was there.

The ones around Kansas City (and down at Carthage, MO as well) are used for distribution warehouses and light manufacturing. It's a real trip to take a big truck in there as you can easily tear the top out of your trailer going around those stanchions and it can get pretty crowded. There's not much margin for error.
