Who is Panic?
I used to be an urban explorer, but pretty much have not been involved in the hobby since my trip to Chernobyl in 2007. As I've gotten older I have become more aware of my mortality, and how close I've come to serious injury or death through this hobby. I've debated removing this site from the web, because I do not want to encourage others to do this. But I've decided that for now it will stay so people can see this sort of stuff without having to put their lives on the line.
My Urban Exploration ethics and standards.
I have ethics, I have standards. Leave no sign that you were there, touch nothing, don't give property owners cause for concern. Don't vandalise and don't be an ass. Many urban explorers have a credo, borrowed from other explorers, ‘leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photographs.’
I consider ethics and standards to be important for all Urban Explorers. If the hobby is ever to gain legitimacy we must be aware of how the public perceives us.
