Your Exploring Anthem

Recommended Posts

What album or even song(s) remind you most of exploring?

Theres a few for me but my Exploring Anthem has to be Urban Hymns by The Verve. I remember digging it out after not hearing it for years at around about the same time I began my favored hobby. The deep and meaningful melodies of songs like "The Rolling People", "Weeping Willow" and "Neon Wilderness" filled my head as I drove through Industrial Wilderness' to various London explores, and during my explores, and still to this day remind me of exploring and explores of old.

The Prodigy's album Music for the Jilted Generation is a good one (and probably their best album), love listening to Break & Enter and Their Law in particular before an explore :music:

Must be concrete jungle from Black Label Society, or Rammstein, Mein herz brennt, cause the video has been shot at one of the largest most amazing location ive ever been

      Summer is making it's way fast and it's time to plan this years "Safety Not Guranteed"-tour !
      Last year I went on a weekend tour to Belgium, with another Urbex stranger and it was great fun. So why not repeat it?
      I'm up for almost any country in Europe and I have spots in almost every country too
      So yeah, would anybody be up for it?

      When I'm in Wales I'm free for the whole weekend so I'll just drive around the back roads and mountain roads, looking for old tracks to venture up or places to visit in the future...But I'm not going to have this much free time in Cornwall, it's mainly a holiday...but come 11pm when everyone's asleep my plan is to go exploring.
      Any pointers or possible locations to explore, not too far from St Ives, an hour-ish maybe, would be appreciated. I'm not going until next weekend, 20th, but I'm not sure of the next time I'll be making the 5+ hour journey from where I live in Northampton, so I want to make the most of the holiday. I've only just booked it so I have just under 2 weeks to scour Google maps and try to find some sites, but any help would be great.

      Hi :-). I'm hoping to meet someone who'd like to go exploring with me. Here in Norway I have a fellow explorer for some of my projects, and some I do alone. At the moment I can quite easily travel, both weekdays and weekends, which my fellow can't. Also it's the season for really cheap plane tickets, so, given that I find really cheap accomodation, basically the whole of Europe, at least, is within reach. So I've been planning to take a trip to some of the great ue sites. I'm hoping for someone wanting to meet up with me, maybe someone who'd let me come along to a place they know, or we go somewhere new toghether. As for now the thought is to make ue plans with someone first, and then plan the trip there. So... anyone wants to meet up with me for some exploring somewhere? :-)
