Truth. I've never had reception in a drain but I've gotten some decent reception at state hospital tunnels.


Reliance on smart phones is a major screw up.
Never rely on a cell phone for safety.
When I'm exploring my smart phone isn't even part of the picture unless I'm capturing an image with...

Best to turn off cell phones when exploring dicey sites because it is tracking you and the meta data is being recorded the whole time; don't dime yourself out.
Sometimes it is better to be invisible than being 'informed'.

I have a question regarding draining as this year I will be getting into it for the first time. I have a few locations in mind, though I know its obvious to never go in drains when its raining. I live on the west coast where there can be lots of rain this time of year (spring.) Say it rained good for a few days but its been dry for a day or two after, is it a good or bad idea to go? I know I can wait for summer but im getting cabin fever lol

It would depend on the system and it's watershed if any.
How long run off continues; how many inches came down and for how long.
Any winter melt off compounds the problem.
Scout it out... best to error on the safe side.

A handy tool for keeping track of streams and watersheds in your area (assuming it's in the US) is to lookup "[stream name] [city name] usgs flow" If it's a large enough stream you'll likely find flow and gauge height data you can use to remotely see how much water is moving. In some cases you can even find NOAA hydrographs that will predict the next 24 hours of flow, but this is only the case with large rivers.

Or, if you're a hardcore civil engineer you can whip up some data and calculate the flow or gauge height yourself using manning's equation for open channel flow.
