Hello everyone!

My name's Lindsay and I'm a newbie to this hobby. I've done several (7) explorations in pretty dangerous areas across the PNW and I'm trying to find others that would like to meet up in the Portland-Metro area. I'm 21 years old, active, and am particularly interested in industrial and medical settings. In the summer of 2018 I hope to make a trip to Ukraine to see Pripyat, though I need a better camera before that trip. I've never been draining or tunneling, and if anyone knows of some good spots to meet up, I'd be thrilled.

I don't take many pictures, and I'm more adventurous than most, not easily intimidated, and prefer longer explorations.

I'm finding it difficult to meet other people that have experience or knowledge irl so I'm moving online. It's very challenging to gain trust in this hobby, and since there aren't many "free" resources online for finding locations or groups, this seemed like a logical place to begin.

Please PM me if you would like to meet up or talk about an exploration!

Hey all, my name is Dustin. I was just introduced to this hobby recently and I find it really fun and cool! I did exploration as a kid but just through creeks and rivers, it will be fun to do more interesting and "adult" adventures now. I live in Vancouver, Washington and was introduced to UE by my best friend and we want to get into this together. My mind likes to wander, why not let the rest of my body follow?

I'm in my mid-twenties, I work full time, I like bands such as System of a Down and Sabaton, I love to cook in my free time as well as game. I don't spend too much time outside as I used to so I would like to dive into this hobby as a way to get out, meet new people, and see some really cool places!

So far I've only done one exploration.

My name is Boon, I am new here, but not to the Hobby. I have been Urban exploring small locations around my home town since I was six, but my Wanderlust has grown And that's just not cutting it anymore. Just wanting to meet some people with the same interest and make memories while I have the legs and body. If you have any tips or hints, then lay them on me. This site seems very useful for information and acquaintances preferably so, scattered across the country so that when the time comes we can meet up and drink beers and explore. Not at the same time of course, but all in all I am here for the adventure. -Boon-

I moved to Texas from the east coast last year. I've grown to appreciate the tiny towns here in Texas,where time seems to have stopped in many ways.I've been doing photography and exploring since high school which was many years ago. I've been following this site for awhile. I always appreciate seeing how others freeze in time, the beauty of places that they have been.
My job lends to having weekends free, so it's been great having the ability to take small road trips. Being new to the area, I thought this would be an interesting way to meet like minded people.

Hi everyone!
I'm from the South Texas area and really interested in everything UE. I'm learning the ropes on UE etiquette, but loving every second of it.
I'm in college right now and thinking about possibly becoming a restoration architect or structural engineer. It would be really cool to turn this hobby into a job.
Anyways, if you have any advice for rookies or want to hear about my dream site that I plan on exploring one day, then feel free to message me anytime! I'll answer back at some point during homework breaks!


Welcome fellow Texan.

I too hail from the Southern region of the state.

Funny that you mention architecture or structural engineering as interests. I work for an engineering firm as a structural designer. I find that my interest in how things are built ties into my interest in watching them crumble.

I began as a history buff, and have been to a few places in the southeast. I'll share more details in person.

Hello everyone

I'm not really new to this website, but I'm new to the chatting portion of this website. I have been exploring since 2009, and am a photographer of all things decayed. I love urban exploring and it is one of my biggest passions. I'm currently in the KW region and explore all over the GTA.

Howdy!

I'm brazosriver. I grew up in West Texas, but now I'm in the Bryan/College Station area. I've explored one or two abandoned buildings back home, but never thought much about urban exploration. However, some of my friends recently took me to an abandoned school in Bryan, and I guess I caught the bug; I made my account here as soon as we got back.

I hope to get to know y'all, and maybe find some people to explore with.

Hi folks,

I am new, I came across this forum a couple months ago and got the infiltration book on Amazon. I haven't gone exploring yet but it seems pretty cool. I did go to a live site tho. I'm in the Denver metro area.

Hi, My name is Andrew, i'm from Wilton NH, I'm a new member here and I am relatively new to Urban Exploration. I've only really ever explored two places although I've been to both multiple times. I was hoping this forum could help me find more places to go as I really enjoy exploring1.

Hi everyone my name is Casimir and I live in the Ottawa area. I am really interested in relics of the cold war (bunkers, coms bases ,nike sites) and I hope to share some of the photos I have take of these sites with some other people. If you ever have a question about cold war sites don't hesitate to ask me I will probably be able to tell you whats what as well as some history of the site .

Hey,
New member here. I'm based out of the Richmond, Va area. I love all things abandoned but have yet to become part of any sort of UE community. I have been exploring abandoned things since I was a kid, but usually I go solo and only recently have I started making it a point to take pictures. I am looking forward to both learning from and contributing to the community.
Cheers

It really is fascinating! If you have any tips on surviving college as an engineering major please let me know!!!

Hey, my name is Lucas and I'm from Burlington, Ontario. My interest for exploring has been with me since I was about 8 years old. In Brazil, I would go to the top of the stairs in my apartment building to try to get on the roof. Although I never succeeded, I was always eager to discover new places in the building, especially the ones I wasn't supposed to get to. I have lived in Canada for about 8 years and in the past two years, I have been really into urban exploring. My friends and I have been to many places, many of which we found ourselves. Apart from abandoned houses we have been able to get into many abandoned places like a restaurant, movie theater, factory, asylum, and some residential rooftops. Although I have been a member for three months I have just recently started reading a lot of posts on this website and plan on sharing my experiences as well. I plan on doing a crane climb in the near future (not sure if it is something people post about here). If you are from the Hamilton/Burlington area don't hesitate to contact me
1.

P.S There's always a way in.

Hello everyone, My Name is Jacob. Time for a change up, Been ghost hunting for past 15 years. Now I would like to relax in places and just take nice pictures instead of hauling a heavy pack of gear around. So far I think this is a nice community. I see no drama, everyone has nice things to say about everyone's pics.
Moved from socal to south ga. I usually like to sit on the side lines and watch everyone post on boards but I think here I can post and feel comfortable. Its nice to meet everyone.

Greetings, I set this account up a couple years ago and never used it (shame) don't know where my User Name came from, as I typed something completely different lol but I'll go with it.

I am originally from Boston, living in Wyoming/Colorado (depends on season) and when I was younger couldn't keep myself away from abandoned....things, cars, planes...buildings..then I became a father.

I'm in the mountains a lot with the dog, or on the road headed to another green space, but now I'm starting to miss my exploration days and wish to reacquaint myself with it, I explore for the energy of the locations but would like to start cataloging my experiences to share with others.

If anyone in the area (Cheyenne/Fort Collins, will travel lol) wants an urbex partner for safety on trips, drop me a line.

-Drew
