Blues 'n Splore '08 (2/15/2008)
Blues 'n Splore 08 was the third annual Mid-Atlantic Region meet and the first time held in Memphis, Tennessee. The meet was held over the course of three days.


Clocktoberfest 2010 (10/1/2010)
This is a yearly explorer meet-and-greet event I host each October at a vacant farm in Galena, Illinois. This was the first year the event was extended to include the entire weekend beginning Friday night unlike previous years when the party was only on Saturdays. Organized groups went to explore caves and abandoned mine workings in the region both on Friday night and also during the day on Saturday. All guests camped in the large field at the vacant farm. Bonfires were made each night and lots of people got to know each other better. Late on Saturday night we took the largest group ever to explore the abandoned zinc mine known as Pits Cave (a Clocktoberfest tradition) and it was an overwhelming success. We had lots of explorers travel all the way to Galena, Illinois from the Twin Cities, Minnesota (the majority of attendees), a bunch from the Des Moines area in Iowa, and a bunch of people from across the state of Wisconsin (Lacrosse, Madison, Appleton, Platteville). This was the biggest and most successful Clocktoberfest ever with 30 attendees!


Wipex 1 (5/28/2011)
The second annual Wisconsin meet was a great day of exploring abandonments, rooftops, and tunnels. Alarms were tripped, verbal warnings were given and pants were pooped. Good work everyone!


SPANDex (8/5/2011)
Setting the bar at new high (and low), SPANDex broke all of the boundaries for what a UE convention should and shouldn't be. With attendees ranging from local n00bs to world-traveling international explorers (and everywhere in between), SPANDex wanted to show what it means to be an explorer here and today in MSP, and why this is the place to be. More than just another reason for locals to get together, this was a moment to show off who we are, and why we act the way we do, both on and offline. And in the process we made plenty of new friends who likely will never be able to separate the MSP community from their own views of what urban exploring can be. They are now part of our extended family, and will always be welcome here. Approx. number of attendees - 40 or more over the weekend.

Crashing restaurants... throwing cave parties... exploring collapses, rooftops, sewers, tunnels, underground boating expos, deathshaft rappels, plus plenty more pre-game & after party happenings.

...And you'd have to have been here to know the rest...
