So, I've been doing a lot of research on Urban Exploration and love what I've learned. I've scoped a few locations in my area, but I feel like it would be dangerous to go alone. And not just everyone or anyone is up for going. Does anyone know how to find other people who do this in my area? (Atlanta, GA) Thanks!
I recently took a trip to the middle of the California desert to see an old abandoned movie set.
While I was there I shot a video of the things that transpired.
Be sure to check it out. A link with more information on the site is in the description of the video.
I hope you enjoy,

Our first attempt to enter this beautiful house went so bad that were spotted by a guy who lives in another house of the estate... the guy was wearing a cyclist outfit on lycra so the house started to be called by my "gang" as "The Lycra House". Obviously that, two weeks latter we retourn at 6:00 a.m. and spend more than an hour in pitch black waiting for the first rays. The morning was cloudy, the light a beautifull shit, the clock was tiking and we only had one hour to "work" untill our dear good cyclist returns (we calculated that that fashion victim wolub be out of bed very soon on a sunday). Result; bad light, few pictures, will to return on Spring. The third visit is always the best...
After a night visit with four non members I had a couple of hours around here in the morning on my own. I was buzzing about seeing this place the previous evening but, seeing the old girl in the daylight was another thing again, absolutely amazing. Had a relaxed (surprisingly) mooch marvelling over the decay and features in here until I started hearing noises about two hours in. I got to the area with the Welcome to Severalls muriel with the intent of making my way to the section where the tunnels meet when I seen a white car parked up with someone sat in the driving seat with the door open. Could not be arsed with any hassle on my own so I quietly retraced my steps out of that area and got out of the site. A fantastic place this one and I can definitely see a re visit or two on the cards.
Severalls Hospital in Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom was a psychiatric hospital built in 1910 to the design of architect Frank Whitmore. It opened in May 1913.
The 300-acre (120 ha) site housed some 2000 patients and was based on the "Echelon plan" - a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting corridors. This meant that staff were able to operate around the site without the need to go outside in bad weather. Unlike modern British hospitals, patients in Severalls were separated according to their gender. Villas were constructed around the main hospital building as accommodation blocks between 1910 and 1935. Most of the buildings are in the Queen Anne style, with few architectural embellishments, typical of the Edwardian period. The hospital closed as a psychiatric hospital in the early 1990s following the closure of other psychiatric institutions. However, a small section remained open until 20 March 1997
