If you are using the internet to find locations, you're not truly exploring

I usually see this in more mountain areas around here, but look for a road stub. A spot where the pavement goes only about 10-15' off the road and stops. There might be a pile of dirt/debris but usually thats a road that has been closed. You would be surprised what you may find down them. I know I have been.

These are my standard things I'm looking for:
- buildings with missing windows or doors, or windows with tangled curtains

go to a crummy area and conduct dismounted movement, which allows you to see things in detail and traverse terrain a vehicle can not.

I am always eyeballing the condition of homes to discern this. Unfortunately in rural Appalachia it's not always accurate. Some people just live that way. Especially in the really far-out parts where you can find homes that are literally pieces of metal and wood slapped together.
I visited a small town in NY state a few years ago where every single home looked like it'd been sitting untouched for decades. But they were all occupied. Apparently the story was that they were trying to keep their property taxes low by letting the outside of their houses go to shit so they looked worthless.

I'm with the rest of you. I use flickr (it's a great way to make contacts with your local UE community)
