    Hey,

    I'm new to Urban exploration but after doing a ghost town in the USA and climbing the knightmare at Camelot, I'm quite enjoying the idea of doing this more often.
    Was wondering if there's anywhere anyone would recommend for a beginner?

    Firstly, Welcome aboard ! :D

    Secondly, you need to establish a presence on here by telling the forum what type of 'plores ya like (industrial, drains, asylums, etc ...), any special talents; climber/abseil, caver, raving maniac ... :eek: ... (well, hold off on the raving bit) & either posting a report (no matter how derppy or shite it is) or replied to a few posts, chatted up the chat box, etc ... So you'll probably won't get too much of a response at first, the reason being is that this is a public forum, viewed by any body. Polica, Secca, Site owners and a host of other nefarious characters just looking to roust a explorer for whatever they can rip off. Sites being updated at this moment, FAQs are in Limbo at this time (correct me if I'm wrong, anybody), people not trying to be nasty, just being cautious. (a good urban exploring trait ... at least to start with! ;) ) so ram about, check things up , get a feel of the place & get to know your new bestest fiend (o_O , meant "friend",must be my subconscious leaking out again:brew ) ... the ... SEARCH BOX. Get involved & the explores will come to you, so to speak. After a while & some activity on here, you'll have your membership status upgraded & find a wonderful tab called "locations", might pick up an idea or two for a explore, me thinks :D ... Again, just some kindly advice, got some more info in the thread links below my sig. If there was a FAQ section you'd basically read the same stuff ...

    (Oh, having skin as thick as a bull rhino helps, too! :thumb)

    Hi Cass,

    St. Helens here too. Paradox and I are always out and about in the area.

    There's a nice culvert under st. helens, look for reports on safari.

    Ravenhead Glass used to be good, but i don't know what state it's in, and if you're caught after 7, expect a trip to the station (there's a small powerstation on site that appears to have guard dogs after 7 for some reason)

    Pilks cowley hill is closed, that's a good mooch.
