|1.||hard hat tourism|
Actively seeking out tours of large industrial facilities for the pure enjoyment of large, expensive, loud machinery and structures. Examples include ship engine rooms, factories, mines, construction sites, and power plants that the general public does not necessarily see. These locations usually require personal protective equipment like hard hats, safety glasses and ear plugs.
I took lots of pictures at the cement plant b/c I like to document my hard hat tourism.
