• slight setback in LA

    After a long day of shooting with Fran and Becca, we decided to meet up with Ben for the first time and check out this church that 3 of us had been to before. Ben was skating over from close by, so Fran and Becca walked over to check out the building while I waited in the car. It wasn’t long before Fran and Becca were walking back, saying there were construction workers over there and that it was a no-go. It was getting late in the day, so we headed over to another church nearby. read more

  • Weird science school

    I wanted to write a post and get something updated here on my site, so I thought the perfect way to do that is a quick one-location explore. I have a couple other previous trips written, but the pictures aren’t ready, and I owe my buddy George a post about my trip to KC, but I’m gonna throw up this quick one instead. read more

  • First trip to New England

    I’ve been wanting to go to Boston and New England in general for a while now, so as soon as Shay and Jerry said to come up to meet, do some exploring, and eat some good food, I didn’t hesitate to book a flight right away. I’ve known these guys on Instagram for a couple years now, so I knew it would be fun. Unfortunately, Shay had something come up and couldn’t meet up this weekend. Hopefully next time. By the time I got to Boston, picked up my rental car, checked in to the hotel, and drove to Jerry’s house, it was getting kinda late, so we didn’t have much time to explore. read more

  • Busted in Bama

    I got a random text from Geo last week, asking if I wanted to go to Birmingham to do some exploring. I just got back from PA and getting ready to go to Detroit the following weekend, but sure why not. Birmingham is one of those places that always produces locations. I’ve been there three times to explore and have only been to one location more than once. This trip was all Geo. He had a handful of places I’d never even heard of before. The first, some sort of girls correctional center. This was one time that I really wished I had worn pants (or brought a machete). We basically made our own path through the dense brush and finally hit some pavement. The first building we see definitely seemed like a prison building. It was mostly cell-like rooms. The last building was a chapel that was pretty boring and had the worst clock tower ever. read more

  • First trip to Pittsburgh and a bunch of new Philly

    A few weeks back, Fran said I should go up to Philly for a weekend to explore. I figured it would be a good opportunity to also hit Pittsburgh, so I booked a flight. It was a quick, three-day trip, leaving out early Friday morning and coming home before work on Monday morning. read more

  • The “Chicago Experience”

    ←Days 1-2

    On day three, Matt and Beth were tired from St Louis, so they decided to take it easy and do their own thing. The first stop on Sunday was coincidentally one of the locations Matt was asking about earlier. One of the more popular places, this abandoned church wasn’t very big, but it still had incredible detail left inside. The architecture and ceilings were amazing, but it didn’t take much time to explore. read more

  • Chicago to St Louis

    What started as a road trip from Chicago, through St Louis, possibly stopping in Memphis, then back through Atlanta with Matt, Beth, and Pete, ended up being a flight to Chicago and a quick drive to St Louis for a night. read more

  • Merry Christmas morning explore (and revisit)

    Several years ago, Scott and I were desperately trying to figure out a way to get into the huge abandoned GM assembly plant in Doraville. We knew of a couple people who had been busted there, but we also knew of a few that had been in and out with no problem, so we knew it could be done. read more

  • A trip to plan a trip

    After planning for a couple months with Matt for a trip to Chicago, I thought it would be a good excuse to go down to visit him in Florida to talk more about our specific plans. I also heard that an abandoned hotel that I’ve yet to explore was open, so it was a good opportunity to check that off the list too. read more

  • Planes in the woods

    We weren’t sure if it would be worth the drive, but Sergio and I decided we’d finally go check out the abandoned airfield we’d seen pictures of. We thought it would be best to leave in the afternoon and drive through the night, so we could get there for sunrise. Seemed to be the best plan of action, and everything worked out great….aside from Led getting pulled over for doing doing 55mph in a 35mph zone in some tiny town in the middle of nowhere. read more
