How would one go about arranging one of these tunnel tours?
I have been in a very small part of these tunnels and it is pretty cool. Tunnel Bob is a pretty crazy dude and even if there was a slight chance he would do a tour, I don't think I'd take him up on it. From what I've read recently, he still goes down there, but not as much as before. The UW still hasn't figured out how he continues to get in these tunnels as they are off limits and also lead into many UW buildings. They've had to fence off some of those entrances to high security buildings so that he doesn't get into them.
The main reason they don't let people down there is because the tunnels carry the steam lines for heat throughout the university. If one of those lines were to break, chances are you're dead or left with a skeletal face.
