The Sewer / Re: My my how UE has changed

Hi Meg.  Good to hear from you.  And thanks for starting this thread.

I personally don't explore today, mainly due to the fact that I barely have any time anymore. Frankly it's a shame that my life is so out of balance!  :angry:

But, the spirit of exploring will always stay with me.  It's a life philosophy I think. Whether it's driving down a strange road, or exploring a trail in the woods with the scouts.. For now I enjoy The Curse of Oak Island.. until I can fully get back into more riskier exploring again.

Curious on other people's situations...

The Sewer / My my how UE has changed

A post on this facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AbandonedEasternPA about the two photography students who broke into a house got me thinking...how many of us still explore?

I know I don't, because these little cameras are cheap and everywhere now.  Hell my mother, who is almost 60 and a jogger, went running on some trails near her house and got captured by a game camera and the guy who owned the land actually found her one morning to yell at her for jogging on his property.  I'm like...how unhinged can someone be to track down a 60 year old to yell at her for jogging?

I just don't trust that abandoned places don't have these cameras now as the tech is cheap and everywhere.  Those girls had a clear camera in their faces and they didn't see it or they are just stupid.

So if you don't explore anymore, what ruined it for you?  I can barely remember the last time I went to a place without permission, lol.  I think maybe it was 2013.

Congrats on the book, I had wanted to go to some of her talks she gave last year but wasn't able to make it out. 

Hear you on not risking shit, I'm the same.  Exploring just isn't what it used to be, too easy to get caught & blasted all over social media.

Last year, in an effort for work on a book I am co-authoring, with a great friend of mine, I returned to the place I called home for over 15 years. This time legally after reaching out to the right people. Taking in over 6 figures a year I cannot risk things like this anymore for the rush, the passion or the love. Its just not wise. It felt odd being escorted around, but open grounds for a worthy cause was cool. Some photos are professional, some are from my cellphone. Enjoy.
