So with the first patch if nice weather coming this weekend, the GF and I wanna get out and explore. We're based out of Buffalo, NY and wanna drive about 2-5 hours out in search for something cool to shoot.

Anyone have any favorable sites they want to share or recommendations on where to go?

We're only looking to stay for the day, driving back late at night is fine, just need to get out of the house.

Welcome to the forum :thumb

Have you any exploring related stuff to share on here? Would be cool to know who you are and what you're into etc. Sort of two way traffic kind of thing.

Good luck this weekend, looking forward to seeing what you come up with :thumb

      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...

      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?

      Well this was my 1st explore of 2015, and as luck would have it not our planned 1st explore We had intended to pop to the recently closed coke works just up the road in Barnsley, but this was a hive of activity, and not from the explorer buses turning up, but the decommissioning team already flat out and on the case So after a nearly 4 hour drive, and it just starting to rain as we got there, we decided to tick of a few things on the overdue to do list.... Off to George Barnsley's it was to be after about a few secs of deciding.. So 30 mins later and were parked up outside and making our way inside.. I had seen reports on-line, but for some reason it had a lot more to offer than I realised. Mates had been saying for a long time that it would be right up my street, and oh boy they were right. Plenty of shots to have a play with both the wide angel and 50mm and I was in heaven for the morning we spent inside.
      On the way out a random encounter with some bloke on his phone as we hopped over the wall was rather odd, as he gave each of us the good morning too ya nod, so after all this fun it was time to jump back into the motor and head off to the nearest Macdonalds covered and smelling of pigeon poop.
