Hunted locations

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

 

I recently go through a rough period of time, and Urban Exploring can get my mind off and put things back in perspective. I do such explorings prefered solo and at midnight. If that place has a certain story added to it I take my car and go for it. I have posted some of my explorations on this forum.

 

I love going back on such adventure again, and share the experiences. 

The problem though is I am sourceless on any abandonned places around my area within a 1.5 hour drive range. Maybe I am searching wrong or maybe there simply are no such places? 

 

Anyway I know it is uncommen, and I may seem to ask to be spoonfed but this is not the case: I have already spend some nights trying to figure the desired sightings within a 1.5/2 hour range. Perhaps there are people here on this forum that relate to my location and help me in this situation. 

 

I live in this area: 

https://www.google.nl/maps/@52.6551298,6.7536155,15z

 

I would usually just take more nights searching the info, but for now I really need this form of distraction and any help would be appreciated.

 

SideNote: why can't explored sightings be sorted on country? It would make things a lot easier.

Hi Wicked Sunday! 
HERE, I already gave you some tips on how to search successfully, respectively how I search. Honestly, I don't know what else I could advise you otherwise.

 

You don't live very far from Belgium. There is a very big and active UE-scene there, and in BE are also hundreds of abandoned places. So it shouldn't be too difficult to make contacts there and / or to find abandoned places in BE. The web is full of it; sometimes even with quite helpful descriptions or information, that can be used to find the places with a little search.

 

And regarding the sorting: Why should the places be sorted by country? After all, Oblivion State is NOT primarily a forum to find places, but a community, to SHOW photos & reports of visited places (of course, too, to view and comment on others' pics and posts, etc.).
In this regard, each has their own preferences and interests. And these usually don't refer to where a place is, but ordinarily based on, what kind of an abandoned place it is (some prefer castles or villas, other industries, others mines, bunkers and caves and so on). Concerning this personal likes, many look specifically at relevant albums and posts.
For this reason, the deliberate chosen categorization here by the kind of places is expedient, and it will hardly be changed into a sorting by countries, I think. At least that's my opinion.

Other than what Andy has already suggested, I would say that exploring solo at night, whilst it is your preference, isnt great for networking opportunities.

 

Using any sort of forum is also not the way to go about finding new places that local to you. It just doesnt work like that I'm afriad. They/We are there to provide a place to share peoples experiences, not to be the yellow pages.

 

Its also about the first time I have heard someone finding it diffucult finding locations in Belgium, its a gold mine.

 

Good luck with your search :)

Thank you for the reactions, there is no difficulty in finding locations in Belgium at all. But I have a weekend job along my studies, so it's hard to combine it with going away for a night and day, since Belgium is 3hrs away from me.

 

I guess I will have to stick to encountering rather than using this forum as 'yellow pages' as you mentioned Dubbed Navigator. 

 

I will maintain updates on the locations I do get to explore.

Wasnt intended in a nasty way @Wicked Sunday, but it does happen in this community a lot, across different forums. What makes the community is getting involved, i'm confident you will find what you are looking for if you do so :)

      Following on from Mooksters rather excellent recent report from our trip across the pond, allow me to give you bicycle porn and derps from erbex's most visited. So I will spare any history, it's all well known.
      Fun filled with excellent company, as this hobby should be, two and a half days driving over 650 miles, ten sites, and I never creamed anyone!
      Grands Moulins de Paris mill.
      From downstairs I hear “ Guys, we have company†“Ooâ€Â, said I, “Fellow explorers?†Not unless they are in white shirts and black trousers! Really don’t know why they climbed that dirty tall fence, much easier way in I thought.
      1 policeman, 2 policeman 3 policeman 4…… 5 policeman 6 policeman 7 policeman 8……..
      And 1 outside blocking in my ‘Engleesh stuupeed’ car, with 3 of theirs. Got lucky after spurting hand sanitizer all over policeman 9, he had a sense of humour, they all did. Poppy, call me :-)


      I'm not one for Graff, but the deserted village of Doal just worked early morning




      And a windmill that has been everything, including a bowling alley.


      Villa Wallfahrt




      And my favourite, it's been respected so far, only two explorers 'tags' in the dust, which don't feel right here at all.

      Research into locations is one of the most rewarding yet time consuming parts of Urban exploration.
      Its easy to to sit back and tourist up the same old named location we see over and over again on forums
      Don’t get me wrong many are well worth seeing as the way different people capture the locations can be so very different and enjoyable.
      Also some are quite unique and rare others have fallen off the radar for a variety of reasons
      But as a whole sploring is a contribution based system in which we all play a part in or we end up with a complete un balance and then end up hearing the words tourist or the Pez classic Wombles / Wombling banded around lol
      Which is never good or wanted as crates ill feeling?
      To that end I decided to just post up a few sites that can assist in finding new or forgotten locations that might help
