  1. thanks for the share! I'll give this a read at lunch today.
  2. Other Ghost town Akarmara. Abkhazia.

    Very good video. This place is amazing. The music was the perfect match for the footage. I got al little vertigo from your intro clip walking on the old rail tracks.
  3. It's recently been posted all over the local social media groups and pages, and in the local news. The real life Silent Hill is now off limits. The Pennsylvania town of Centralia has been a bit of an attraction not only for explorers, but tourist from all over clamor the the tiny town know for it's raging underground mine fires. For over 50 years the town has been burning from below, chasing out residents and being the inspiration for the Silent Hill series. The PA State Police are now cracking down and citing people for exploring the iconic Rt 61, also known as Graffiti Highway. Back in November, my exploring partner and I took a trip to film. I did a series of three videos back then, but in lieu of resent events I did a fresh edit on the location.
  4. USA Abandoned Company Town

    This location may have been abandoned by the company, but it has been adopted by many others. Ranging from urbex, to looky-lous, to paintball/airsoft players, to band photos, to first responder training. It opened up to high level employees or the Rail Road who spoke English as their first language. This only last roughly 13 years before it was abandoned. We chose an incredibly muddy day to head back here and the Jeep got stuck. IT really only made the day better. https://youtu.be/SjpsNPFUGd8
  5. USA Abandoned Black Powder Factory - January 2017

    thank you very much!
  6. USA Abandoned Black Powder Factory - January 2017

    I don't have a movie icon. I wonder if I need to have a certain post count to unlock all the forum features.
  7. A deadly explosion in 1997 finally shut down the GOEX Black Powder complex. 20 years later I go back for a look around to see what remains of this massive complex. Open from 1912-1997 there have been many deaths here over the years. The most resent would be in 1991, killing 3 men and 1997 killing 2 men. Not much remains after 20 years of being left to sit.
  8. USA Abandoned Ewen Machine Shop

    This was my first exploration video. I shot it in early November. It took me months to find out what the building actually was. There was nothing on line, I could find no public records of it. Finally a local FaceBook page led me to some answers, and a video walk through of the building someone had done years earlier giving the history of the building. A link to that video can be found in the description of my video. I also recently found out that the whole back area of the building was a DIY skatepark at one time. all the ramps have sense been removed/destroyed. I also went back a couple weeks later and did some drone shots. This was the first test of my drone after it tried to run away from home. The drone flew under my control the whole flight, but was still a little shaky. It has sense been fixed.
  9. UK Pagefield College Campus

    Nice video. I dig that you didn't give up.
  10. USA Abandoned Mining Fan Complex

    My friend and I explore some old mining remains. This was the Hillman Fan Complex, that was part of the Dorrance Colliery. The main fan house holds the remains of the only known surviving Guibal fan. This fan was used to force fresh air back into the mine, while the two smaller fans pulled out air containing dangerous gases. This complex was build in 1883/84 and was in operation until 1935. Several of the mining tunnels ran underneath the Susquehanan river, that was only about 100 yards from the complex. The river breached one of the tunnes flooding the sections of the mine down stream from the main Colliery, which was about 1/4 mile up river. Ultimately the mining operation shut down in 1959 following the Knox Mining Disaster that took place near Pittston PA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SZcPdkF81E
  11. Hello from Northeastern Pennsylvania, USA. I'm new to Urbex. I use to check out places when I was younger, but now I do daily YouTube videos and I have done a few exploration videos. Not only do they do well on my channel, they are some of the most fun things to film. I hope to find out about new locations to check out, and learn some tips and tricks.
