Well, when I say new, I've been interested in urban exploring forever, and I've explored a fair few abandoned locations. But, looking at this website, it looks like there are a ton of people more serious that I am lol. Anyways, here's my questions:
1. Does this community look down on those who choose not to trespass, hop fences, avoid guards, or pick locks to get into places? I really don't want to do anything illegal (though I have explored places that COULD have been illegal to go to, but I didn't really know, and there was nobody that told me not to go there) or get into trouble. I have intentionally not explored several places that are REALLY cool because I don't want to risk it.
2. I'm not sure that what I enjoy finding is really urban exploring. I like finding places that have been left to nature, like the Brio Superfund site (under America, then Texas, then Friendswood in the DB map) and an old oil drum that sank into a swamp, which I've posted below, stuff like that. However, that might not be considered urban exploring because there's nothing "urban" about it. Is what I'm doing really urban exploring, or is there something else that I've been doing?
3. Is there any way to post finds besides being a Full Member? I really like exploring solo, so I wouldn't want to explore with other people, making one of the requirements for becoming a Full Member not gonna happen.
Thanks for the help guys, I really look forward to reading yall's responses!
