I go alone sometimes with my bud sometimes but also im a dude, too poor to rob, and i dont mind shooting the shit with tweakers.

You get more done alone but have way more fun times with friends

I let my mind freak me out. There's a lot of strange noises in abandoned places. I like to "what if" myself right out of exploring sometimes... BUT, that never happens when I have a friend, or 2, with me. I have explored dozens of locations and while a few have been dangerous due to deterioration and building conditions, I have never been injured. I have run into tweakers, homeless, and animals, but never once been injured. I say this to say, it can be a dangerous hobby, but if you take the proper precautions you'll be fine. In most cases, there's no issue with exploring alone if you can get outside of your own head and push past your own fears, but like others have said, exploring with a friend is more fun.

Good idea to go with someone else if you're female-bodied/younger/newer.

Once you're more advanced, you can go alone.

I usually like having a partner but can't always swing it for scheduling reasons.

Depends. The riskier the objective, the more I like having a friend or two with me. But unfortunately, the riskier the objective, the less likely my friends (non-urban explorers) want to go. It’s also more fun when you bring friends IMO.

I always go exploring with another person because you never know what could happen, plus seeing their excitement and enjoyment with whatever we're exploring just brings me satisfaction.

75% of the time I'm exploring with 3 or 4 people but never by myself.

I never go exploring alone for safety reasons. Especially since the last place I explored was way too active with squatters and scrappers. When we were leaving a guy tried sneaking up on us from the stairwell and wouldn’t identify himself. When we said we were leaving and had just been taking pictures, he showed himself but was awkwardly staring at me and eyeing my camera bag. Once he saw I was holding my keychain dog repellent he backed off. Then he proceeded to get in a fight with some half naked homeless broad across the hall. You just never know what you can run into in some of these places. In my mind it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

No one in my area, and my exploration are normally events of opportunity and not planned.
