Recently, this made the news in Portland: people exit manhole! Wow, what are they doing down there?! Disturbing! Suspicious! Beware! How dare they, and why?!

Have a gander and a giggle, and be careful where you come up if you're exploring drains in the area.

Best to keep a low profile and not be seen whenever possible.
After 911 things changed a lot... unfortunately.
Rule #1 People are trouble




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

Yeah it's also a REALLY nice thing to put the cover back, god dammit. Just because you're sketched out and exiting in an obvious place doesn't mean you should create a fall hazard.

As for 911, I always calm myself down by thinking, "oh, we're not that scary looking, I mean come on we're holding cameras" - but I spend enough time listening to scanners to know people will call 911 about anything.

Peoples reactions to exploring are really funny sometimes. I was talking to a friend of mine who was asking how I get into places. He explained to me the ninja burglar techniques that I use and how I leap through windows after I smash them while evading police. Keep in mind he had had a few drinks before this. Whenever I tell people that I literally just open doors and climb through the occasional pre-smashed window they're amazed.

That group of 5 leaving the manhole open was pretty stupid. Blackhawk is always saying how exploring at night could easily lead to an unseen open cover, and now I see how. People are really lazy I guess.

The first set were only wearing what looked like tennis shoes, and the second group were barefoot? In a sanitary line? Not very intelligent.

Certain situations require popping lids and that practice has a it's own etiquette, mostly centered around safety (and stealth). Leaving a lid ajar is a good way to get somebody hurt/killed, and your secret tunnel kvlt membership revoked!




Telling a man to get lost, and making him do it are two entirely different propositions...

This is an industrial area away from bars with almost no pedestrian activities and related drunken craziness. Tossing a shoe onto a conspicuous area of someone's property is a good way to attract attention. That shoe was what prompted them to check the video.

Rock dumb stupid... that's a damn nasty soup of infections. Only thing worse than doing that is falling and getting a big mouthful.

I've often wondered what people would think if they spotted me entering/leaving drains. I generally wear a high vis vest and hardhat though to try and look somewhat 'official'
