I got saved by the Coastguard after Portland Urbex went wrong!

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

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?

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.
