Thank you everyone for the helpful and encouraging replies!!
@Mr. Bitey: You're definitely right, I'll work on becoming more brave and also try to make connections with people who share an interest in it..! Your second paragraph is very helpful... I don't think that its bad to be cautious!! You're right about safety being #1. I'm really grateful! Thank you so much
@blackhawk: Im grateful for your advice a lot too! I'll probably start working out more to regain stamina so I don't fall when running... also the advice about watching people is really insightful and keeping these things in mind makes me less anxious..
@2Xplorations: I'll definitely look up the book!!!! I totally get why people don't post locations or give them out when asked, since some people could ruin them and they don't take the effort as the people who found them do... There are some places that I searched for that look fun for infiltration so once I bring up my courage and get more experience I'll definitely try it and post pictures!!
@Radio2600: Thats so cool!!! I'm sure a lot has changed since then, you're right about the real estate... I've lived outside the city my whole life and its changed a lot there too..
I'll keep everyone updated with any explorations I do! I hope I don't disappoint
