Hi all. Just got back from a road trip and saw so many great locations. I thought it time to introduce myself now that I might actually have something to contribute. (Have yet to sort my photos.) I'm from South TX area but try to wander far and wide. Pretty sure my love of old buildings started as a kid the second I stepped foot inside a tiny chapel on a field trip. Most of my friends don't feel the same tingle that I do when stumbling across old structures. Figured it would be nice to connect with some who might.

Welcome! So where did this road trip take you to? We always love good stories and we really love photos as well, so please feel free to share your adventures in the South forum (or wherever you may have gone). I just took a road trip from Texas to Utah last month and loved it.
Yay, another Texan!

Hey guys, I'm Josh I've been lurking for about a year now and decided to make an account. I've been into urbex for about 2 years now and if anyone from the Philadelphia area wants to explore something just send me a message.

Hey fellas. Occasional lurker here, Fraser Valley BC area. I've been working on a personal project documenting ruins from the Fraser Valley to Crowsnest Pass for a year and a half now and have many locations to share, some of them updates on existing entries in the DB, and hopefully many new ones. Most of my exploration has been in the Fraser Valley, Fraser Canyon, Thompson-Nicola, and Kootenays. I don't spend a lot of time in Vancouver or the immediate surrounding area. I'll be taking it slow to start, I want to make sure I'm formatting these right for UER and not sharing too much or too little, so feel free to lend some advice once I make my first entry. Looking forward to getting to know some of the locals.

Wow, you said a mouthful. Seeing that the USA and Canada for that matter are based on the right to own private property and that many here do, it's fair to say many on UER aren't opposed to it.
Moreover some of us have shot extensively by permission from the owners and even the local police as well as by other means. Many of us don't B&E to explore.

One thing many of us tend to be is anti-documentary as you may have noticed.
If your documentary is nonprofit you need no consent forms for anything including images.
Do you remember W.W. Beauchamp in Unforgiven?
Do you recall Will Munny advice to him at the end of the movie?




Hey sorry for the late Re: Blackhawk. haha, yeah, I guess I did spew off quite a bit.

I See now. like you said before: documentaries seem to be a very disliked form of research here. I've actually decided that it would be really disrespectful, to both you and this community, if we continued to ask for this communities participation in our school research. I'm taking your advice, I'm going to become more of an active person: exploring locations, taking photos, and writing descriptions. Those who know best do, right?

Oh yes, as for the consent, we are still bound by our Universities ethics boards. Even though we are non-profit, we still need to assure that our participants are aware of their involvement, and the ability to see the final project so they can see if they want to be involved in the final project or not.

What can I tell you, it's a rough crowd.
A documentary makes it too easy and would attract the some of the wrong types of people.
Make them do their homework themselves.
In short a documentary of UE offers no benefits for me and is nothing but a potential liability in a number of ways.
Releases mean you could use the material for profit or as you see fit, legally. I tried to find you and your group doing a search, but could not. That reduces your credibility. You could be -anyone-

A sincere interest in urban exploring means you do it by nature.
That's why we are here.

I moved to Texas from the east coast last year. I've grown to appreciate the tiny towns here in Texas,where time seems to have stopped in many ways.I've been doing photography and exploring since high school which was many years ago. I've been following this site for awhile. I always appreciate seeing how others freeze in time, the beauty of places that they have been.
My job lends to having weekends free, so it's been great having the ability to take small road trips. Being new to the area, I thought this would be an interesting way to meet like minded people.

I hope I'm doing this right. I am Kedar and I registered for this site a while back but forgot about it for some time. I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and currently go to school in Philadelphia. I have also lived in New Jersey and would also like to explore there, as well as other nearby states. I have always been interested in exploring abandoned places but have had little opportunity to in the last few years. I have decided to begin doing it more frequently as well as take photos to document all the places I explore in my lifetime. I am also interested in meeting people to explore with. If anyone is planning to go somewhere in/around Philly or Allentown, I would love to tag along.

Hello everyone! I'm super thrilled to have found this community. I'm from Seattle and have done most of my exploring out in the woods at abandoned houses and quarries. I'm excited to discover more gems in the PNW and look forward to learning more from everyone here. I'm working to improve my photography, so I won't promise any masterpieces

Hey everybody, glad to be here.
Allow me to share some basic info. First (hold the flaming please), graffiti led me here. I don't write, it's just a separate interest of mine. Leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures is the motto and I follow it. The few places that I've "explored" are not secrets and have been covered in graffiti for years. My son also rekindled my interest in this urbex thing. He shared a couple local tunnels that him and his friends stumbled across. For now he is my exploring partner. Sometimes we go in together, sometimes I'll scope out a location first and take him later if I feel it's safe enough. I am in the 951 area of SoCal, some light exploring can be found but nothing like the odd buildings deep in the forests elsewhere that I see. As far as pics go, my good camera is my cell phone. I've managed to take a couple decent shots but never saved them to PB, just post them on IG and erase from my phone. If anyone cares to see a couple urbex shots (and a lot of graffiti) I'd be happy to share my IG user name. I'd like to explore a lot more spots, I even know of a few that are local, but those can wait till I meet up with a group that lets me tag along. Not trying to stumble onto a meth lab solo!
Anyway, I'm not trying to write a book so I'll just get back to browsing through this website. Hopefully I'll have something with some content that I can share soon enough.

Welcome to Texas.

This is the method that I use to explore. Full tank of gas and lets see what I can find.

Look forward to seeing what you discover.

Hey everyone. this is Metalmenshevik, just got off my 3 day posting ban period. So a little about me, I am 22, male, not very tall, powerful build, mixed Levantine and Eastern European heritage, and grew up in the Chicago-area, where there are as you all know tons of spooky abandoned places, which piqued my curiosity since childhood. I now reside in sunny Austin, TX and am looking to firmly plant myself in the local urbex community and get more involved. I am currently in school part time and my interests include all outdoor activities besides hunting and fishing, architecture, antiques, cooking, history, traveling, Leftist philosophies, anthropology, linguistics, permaculture and ethnobotany, foraging, mixed media art,music you can thrash to, and run-on sentences ;) ...I am also self-employed designing and building xeriscapes (desert gardens). I have been a lurker on this site since I was about 11 or 12 years old and saw it posted on iambored .com and have just now decided to join for some reason a freaking decade later [smacks forehead]. Anyways, I hope to make some good friends here with common interests in the dark and unknown/forgotten.

Hey everyone! Im from the town of Nelson BC and eager to get into some exploring again. We used to have an old CP railroad building that my friends and I would explore but was torn down (5?) years ago and I havent done much since. I dont know of a lot as far as abandoned buildings in the area but we have a multitude of ghost towns within a few hours drive. Im glad to have stumbled upon this great resource and hope I can contribute to its growth and I look forward to connecting with more experienced individuals

Hello all!

I'm Dustin and I live in Boston and have for my 32 year existence, and I grew up hiking and stuff like that with my pops. I recently started getting back into it and found this all appeals to me as well. All the abandoned places I used to explore as a kid, mostly gone now, but I see there are still many gems out there. I hope to meet some of you and do some exploring!

Hi everyone!
I'm from the South Texas area and really interested in everything UE. I'm learning the ropes on UE etiquette, but loving every second of it.
I'm in college right now and thinking about possibly becoming a restoration architect or structural engineer. It would be really cool to turn this hobby into a job.
Anyways, if you have any advice for rookies or want to hear about my dream site that I plan on exploring one day, then feel free to message me anytime! I'll answer back at some point during homework breaks!

Hi! My name is Anna and I am from San Francisco, California. I love exploring abandoned places but lack of some precaution knowledge, I've learned so many new things from reading information shared by many experienced explorers in this forum. I am really looking forward to explore with some members from my region someday or even may be able to contribute to the community with new discoveries! Cheers!

Howdy. New member from Fort Worth. My girlfriend and I (who are both natives of the area) have always been interested in Old Fort Worth. Theres is a ton of history here that goes overlooked by virtually everybody anymore. Former Marine infantry, now I restore classic cars and build hot rods. I like old stuff. Don't really like talking much. Maybe we'll bump into one of y'all some day; I've seen a handful of other people on UER in the DFW area who still appear to be active in the forums.
