If you did find any of the above, what did / would you do?
Do you ever take souvenirs?
Do you make multiple visits to the same site or is it a case of one and done?
Whats the most jaw dropping place you've discovered?
Ever had any near death experiences while exploring?
Money – Yes. But not much.
Dead Body – No!
Meth lab / grow house – We have found evidence of a grow in one place, but even that had been abandoned by the time we got there!
Anything valuable – Yes, quite a lot. Some of the places we visit would be considered disused, rather than abandoned I guess. Country houses are a good example of this, they are often no longer lived in, but oil paintings, antique furniture and ornaments often still remain.
We left all of the above have been in place. I refrain from posting such places on the Internet until I know the valuable items are no longer there or have been secured, as I don’t want to advertise such items to thieves.
Yep, if I’m honest I have taken the odd souvenir, but never anything of value or something that would be missed.
As much as possible I try to stick to one visit per location, however I want to ensure the reports on my website are as thorough as possible, so sometimes it takes more than one visit if I miss something, or get rumbled during a visit.
The most jaw dropping…. That’s a hard one to answer as places are stunning in different ways. I love industrial locations, and there’s one place in particular that stands out in my memories. It’s called Diesel Centrale, it’s a vintage diesel-fired power station in Austria, and is extremely well preserved.
I’ve not had any near death experiences.
