    Hey Guy's first time poster on here so hope this is ok..

    It's a story like this... Flight's all booked, case and passport packed in readiness for Monday afternoon

    arriving in Detroit.. Is this the Urban explorer's Mecca.?

    Any-one been there, had any experience's with any of the explorer's tours..

    I've done as much research as I can afford the time to do, I'm still not really sure what I've let myself in for.

    So Guy's if you've done it before, did you cower away in a Hotel bar some where or did you boldly travel the streets and if so what was your preferred choice of concealed side-arm ( only joking about the last bit)

    welcome on in, Dweeb went not long ago,He got robbed at gun point…Only kidding. Have a look at his report also look on line for guided tours, not quite exploring but in the land of trigger happy crack heads best to be safe than sorry. Look forward to seeing the reports. Not to sure if its still the Mecca i think a lot in under development but cant say for sure. personally i would be heading East to the rust belt...

    I'd love to look round Detroit, quite jealous. Just remember the yanks have a different approach to trespass to us, it usually involves prison or guns.
    Looking forward to some reports

    I haven't been, but have spoke to @dweeb about his trip quite a bit.

    From what I can make out, there's plenty of accessible places, and the local explorers are helpful as well.

    Take maps, go explore. I certainly wouldn't be paying anyone.

    And remember, everyone carries out there. Good guys, bad guys, cops. Don't be getting in any trouble.

    Is it an exploration mecca? No.

    I always wanted to go and I got an all expenses paid trip with work. The day I got there I hit fisher body and Packard and had no trouble at all, there epic for their size but that's about it, very very very stripped .

    The guys I met out there were surprised I went alone, and without a gun. Folks carry guns there like we carry a packet of gum, and after meeting them I was more careful about where I went and when.

    I'll drop you a pm with some advice based on my experience...
