    Hello.

    The day before yesterday we attempted to go to East Weares Rifle Range in Portland, Dorset, of what should be a relatively easy explore. We ended up being saved the Coastguard and three search parties, as we couldn't find a way back in the summer night. I'm a fellow newbie (only 5 explores under my belt) but I must warn do pack properly. Read if you want to laugh my blog on how not to Urban Explore:

    Well, you have some balls posting that up, fair play!

    Sometimes hindsight is a wonderful thing, and biting off more than you can chew in them circumstances could have ended up much worse, remember, failing to prepare is preparing to fail

    Stay safe :thumb

    After reading your story mate, I really am not sure if it is an exercise in creative writing or a true story because I got so totally lost in the over descriptive content that I couldn't make head or tail of it in the end and glazed over.

    Oh dear!

    I've received worse injuries from playing with my cat.

    The video's I suppose help to prove the report was correct in places but it really is an over the top dramatisation, I felt like I should be reading it in a Michael Burk voice, remember that TV series 999? And so.... on this day, tragedy struck a group of morons.

    Perhaps go for a nice sensible walk on a nice safe surface like the streets of London in some Sports Direct trainers and raise some money for the Coastguard for your next 'adventure'.

    I only skim read it (the excessive use of unnecessary words was doing my head in), but it looks like you got a scratch, and it got dark making scrambling too dangerous to carry on. Why not just wait until it was light again?

    I suggest you get another hobby. Putting others at risk to save yourselves.
    You obviously have a flare for creative writing, try that.

    pfft, someone fucks up, admits it, and gets called a wanker.

    Shit, i've had to have cpr on site by my mate, for stuff that was purely my fault, and that doesn't make me a wanker, it's all the other stuff that makes me a wanker.
