    hi all. I used to explore these types of places as a kid in london but now living by poole quay and found this site today. I would love to get involved wth you all as my partner hates this sort of thing and so if anyone wants to take me along I would love it.

    Welcome to the forum. There's a few things down your way. The searchbox will help you find inspiration. What kind of things are you into? As in Hospitals, drains, Industrial etc

    Howdy do!
    In lieu of the FAQs section (which are AWOL at this moment), I'll usually post this bit o' canned text to explain some "basics" of the forum for the newbie ...
    Firstly, Welcome aboard ! Secondly, you need to establish a presence on here by telling the forum what type of 'plores ya like, 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, me thinks :D ... Again, just some kindly advice, 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

    might not be exactly what you're looking for (advice), but that's how things usually go around here... carry on :D

    Thanks I have looked and found some places, I'm getting used to the site still. I'm into anything really apart from drains tbh. Just need to find some people who are going on a visit local to me so that I can join them

    I didn't like drains when I first joined, that's changed somewhat. If you get a few threads up, people will approach you. We're all warey of noobs, because you could be anyone for all we know. There are a few nice easy splore near you, as well as a few 'more challenging' places.

    And on the flip side, also be wary of other newbies who seem as overly excited about meeting up as you are them.....you never know, as indeed nobody knows about you ;)

    If your"e serious about this, as mentioned above get some reports up (plenty of things near you) and people will be more forthcoming ........or not lol

    There is a word you may like to explore...........Solo........... ;)

    There"s stuff you should be able to do solo, 95% of all my stuff is solo for various reasons. Don"t feel you can"t do anything without company. Just adjust your initial risk assessment which is what you should ideally be doing, which includes the usual slips, trips & falls & include Druggies, Chavs, Needles, Homeless People, Pallisade etc fencing , Azzy etc etc

    On 2nd thoughts take someone with you :)

    I'm more accustomed to old army building visits, old offices with guard dog security and cctv etc a few druggies and chavs will not put me off. I'm a big lad :)

    Get out there have fun & get some reports up & everything else should follow.

    That"s the thing with Members intro"s if they don"t tell us much about themselves, how is anyone to know their abilities or limitations? you can only go off what"s been said & try and give advice accordingly.

    Hello im from Bournemouth I've never been on any explorations as ive no friends interested in joining me and don't fancy going solo on this kind of thing.
    I'm looking for local groups to show me the ropes and to make new friends. Like I said I've not done it before so im not sure what sites I will like but im swaying to underground stuff. If you can help me out with group contacts that would be great. Cheers
