how the public reacts to drainers (amusing KGW story)

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...
