So when it comes to Urbex, Rurbex, draining, rooftoping and live site infiltration, what would you consider OFF LIMITS to you as in something you wouldn't attempt. A "No Go" if you will.

Like I found an art museum with this sturdy metal siding that is just begging to be climbed, that has lots of easily accessible levels on top that would make for great rooftoping. But it really just seems like a red zone in every way. Mainly because it's a place that houses very expensive stuff, and you know, the "implication" that comes with getting busted in a zone like that.

Nothing is off limits! Hell even getting into people’s homes is what it is all about! Exploring! No “Off Limits” for me.

I definitely consider active dwellings to be breaking and entering and uncool. There's a difference between urban exploration and being a complete creeper.

It's good to have respect for certain things.

There's a location where tons of people were abused, murdered and buried and I will not go there until the decades old investigation is over, if at all. The place is very cool but trampling over the shallow graves of children to look at an abandoned building is a step too far for me.

After a certain amount of demolition has started on a building, I won't go in.

See this picture for an example.

Why would you want to do this? Got some kind of a death wish? Just want to check out my underwear drawer?

Come try this in my home, I'll even give you a choice of wound diameter, .45ACP or 5.56mm


Exploring?


Burglary!

This. Theres a very good chance that if I find someone in my home they are not leaving under their own power. I'd expect the same if I was in someone else's home I didn't belong in.

I'd add any active government or government contractor facility. (Federal Gov kicks this up even more) Wont fuck with it. The risk to reward scale is tipped too far to risk there. I don't want to end up in "that" database or be on those types of peoples radar.

I remember several years back a couple explorers explored an active military installation in New England. While their explore went off without a hitch they were paid a visit by some less than amused men a few weeks later and got some serious charges levied against them.

Aw, where's your sense of adventure? Everybody knows Extreme Exploring is the only kind of urbex for real explorers!







Indiana Jones wasn't an archaeologist, he was an urban explorer. Archaeologists do a lot less running and a lot more paperwork.

Judging by his post history, he hasn't actually contributed anything worthwhile yet, but his post was clearly a joke, which was funny when it was Buttram Manfist and is still kind of funny now.

Usually draw the line when there is a high police presence.

I would of taken it as a joke if it were somebody like you, 2k or blackhawk. Somebody with prestige ya know.

But the fact that he hasn't contributed anything over the last 6 months makes him totally suspicious.
Not that I actually believe him.

Other than what Steed mentioned about government buildings and demos, I won't explore or even scout if it is:

1. Obviously dilapidated (e.g. half collapsed prairie sentinel)
2. Obvious squatter dwelling

What is and isn't off limits is different for everyone. It depends on the moral compass they possess. In the case of "beebs" he has none. For me, it is a locked and sealed building. I will not go in unless there is already a POE, whether that be an open door, or a previous break in. I am even kinda leery of the previous break-ins too, because who is too say if the cops show up, that I don't get blamed for it.

In short, I have great respect for other people's property, whether said people still own it or not. I am always willing to gamble a trespassing ticket, but not a B&E.




Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.

There's an "abandoned" house within walking distance of me. The story I've been told is that the old couple who lived there died, and their adult children want to keep it exactly as it was, so they're still paying for it. I've only taken exteriors of that one.

my personal "off limits" would be any kind of old mine or drains. Not my thing!

Most underground stuff, mines and the like just aren't my idea of fun. Which is annoying as one of the most unique car graveyards in the UK is located inside a cavern in a Welsh slate mine, but you can only access it by descending a near vertical rock face which I'm simply not up for!

There have been a couple of houses explored over here that I simply had no desire to go and see for myself simply due to the morbidity, infamy and history of what happened there - one of them was a large house in which the husband snapped over debts and killed his wife, daughter, horses and dogs before he set the house on fire and killed himself (article with the explorers photos can be seen here http://www.dailyma...r-horses-dogs.html)

The other house was once - apparently - some kind of animal rescue business, however when explorers got in they found the skeletal remains of dogs scattered all over the house, some in cages others not, and the nearly every floor covered in fossilised animal faeces. I've never not wanted to go anywhere less than that.




I like car graveyards.

Don't do drain, but I'm ok with tunnels.

I'd say anyplace residential or otherwise that is found to be not as abandoned as originally thought. I live in WV and with some of the houses, you just can't really tell.

Heh heh. In Canada, government facilities aren't quite as risky, so they're not totally "no go" for me, just "use extra precautions". But then again I'm all about active sites and critical infra stuff, which most people won't touch with a 10 foot pole.

As for no goes? Well I've encountered more than a few drains that look really damn cool, except that they were sanitary - will NOT go into those literal shitholes.
