I thought the main forum bingo was cool, but thought we deserve our own. Tried to make for both beginners and more experienced explorers.


Here's mine filled out

Print em out for your next subterranean gathering!

For the Perkins one does Mickeys count? Also, how the hell do you climb through a fire hydrant? I don't know how those things are up there but down here the pipe is like 3 inches wide.

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

Yeah mickeys definitely counts. There’s a certain spot where there’s plates on either side of the hydrant that lift up and there’s a manhole underneath. I only know of spot like this, but it’s a pretty popular one.

I second that. Never done Perkins as it's now closed, but did an early morning Mickey's run and IT WAS THE BEST.

Almost all of those can apply to NYC as well.

No Perkins in NYC. There are independently owned and operated diners all over the place (except in Brooklyn) which are much better than Perkins.

Rolling up at 4am during a snowstorm wearing rubber boots and covered in sand was made even better by the fifteen or so city cops and state troopers chilling inside who knew that we knew that they knew what we had been up to but didn't have reasonable cause to do anything about it. I remember trying not to lose my shit and start laughing as we sat down at a table right between the two groups and ordered while their jaws hit the floor. Great times.

This is definitely a regional thing, as I've never been to MSP, but here's what I've done at home. Would love to visit Minneapolis when I get the chance, though.

Glad I'm not the only one confused about how tf one enters through a fire hydrant.

1. Anyone that has gone draining has had this happen.
2. Tunnel Party at a place called Whitepot. The tunnel was walled off years ago.
3. In a cemetery of all places.
4. I lived in Rockaway Beach. Sand is everywhere.
5. Trying to access a walled off tunnel.
6. It sure seemed like it. http://www.uer.ca/...ow.asp?locid=28804
7. Subway exploring that vest is an all-access pass.
8. Not for a very long time, but yes and for a rather long distance.
9. Are you kidding, they're everywhere!
10. We have this thing called the Gowanus Canal. During heavy rain, the sewers backup and raw sewage flows freely into the canal.
11. NYC
12. Yes, but outside the city.
13. Definitely
14. In NYC we have diners, but I'm told they're dropping like flies.
15. For decades.
16. That's how you get into a place we call S4. The manhole cover is next to a police station.
17. Sawmill Creek runs in tunnel under Yonkers.
18. Several times. In one, someone decided to take the fire alarm switch for a souvenir and set off the fire alarm.
19. Yes, but they are regarded by many to be an elite.

I love all the explanations. Makes me want to come to NYC haha. I think a lot of the things on here might even be more common out there, especially rats

I looked up the most rat infested cities in the Western World and NYC is #1. MSP isn't even in the top 10.



Supposedly,Alberta is free of rats.

Rats are like any other form of wildlife and need food, water and cover. Population numbers depend heavily upon predators or lack thereof.

The top predators of rats are birds of prey. Particularly owls. In NYC, birds of prey are known to nest on tall buildings and bridges which NYC has plenty of, but are seldom seen at street level where the rats are. NYC also has one of the largest subway systems in the world where rats thrive with no exposure to predators.

Not all boroughs of NYC are created equal. Geology weighs into how cities develop. Manhattan, The Bronx and to lesser degree, Staten Island, are sitting on granite bedrock and are conducive to building tall buildings. Brooklyn and Queens as well as the rest of Long Island are sitting on a giant sand bar and favors low-rise construction which is a better habitat for birds of prey.

Rat pressure in Manhattan is the worst. To give an idea of who large the sprawl of skyscrapers is in Manhattan, the distance from the Empire State Building to the Freedom Tower is about the same as the distance from the Cappella Tower to Theodore Wirth Park in MSP.

I was thinking of any tall sketchy climb in a sandstone tunnel, but idk don't listen to me. If you've done a climb that could have taken you to heaven if you fell, mark it off haha

Surprised one of the spots wasn't something about access using technical rope work.
