Is anybody here into Urban Exploration?

Postby Silverspoon » Wed Mar 29, 2017 7:20 pm

For those not familiar, here is a definition straight from the web:

"Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex, UE, bexing, urbexing and sometimes known as 'roof-and-tunnel hacking') is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment." - Wikipedia

I have been actively exploring for a few years now, and I have a deep passion for dead malls. So far I have been a lone wolf with the exception of talking about some plans with a well known explorer from Youtube and the possibility of us getting footage of Crossroads in the future.

Is there anyone else here interested in UE? There are plenty of places around Omaha and surrounding areas to hit, so maybe we could start a little group or something.

My sister had a boyfriend back in high school who was into that stuff. I went with them one night to some of those old warehouses in Jobber's Canyon. It is interesting but can be dangerous. I didn't think of it much back then when I was 15. There is that old pawn shop by the old Civic site you could explore. I saw one of the bottom doors kicked in. I bet there are some bums living in there. Oooooh, imaging the smell of urine.

I generally try not to trespass, so no, I'm not into Urban Exploration.

Yeah that's the rub.. While Urban Exploration sounds interesting to me, the abandoned ruins one is exploring, are most likely owned by someone...

Ciao..LiO...Peace

I heard a story about an abandoned food truck somewhere in a field out by Hummel Park you might want to check out. They say if you look into the rear view mirror and repeat 3 times......Food Truck Man...Food Truck Man.....Food truck Man...a ghost chef will appear and make you the best meat loaf or pot pie you ever ate :lol:

When you get done exploring that old food truck and eating your meat loaf you might as well check out the Albino Farm right down the road..... :;):
