If you're ever in the neighborhood, I know this great place you guys have got to see. I've been in there a couple of times, but never alone. It's haunted. Very creepy. Kicks ass.

Enjoyed your site, but wonder if you know the chance you took in the Ford power tunnel? Even the most expirenced electrical men in the plant took great care when walking that place. The sand mine is another story. Did you finds the names and picks on the wall along with names and dates?? Yah, been there many times and wonder if any of the men that worked there are stil alive... Tell that wild irishman, Paul, that his fame is spreading... I have worked with and known him for more years that I would like to think... Stay the hell out of the power tunnel for god's sake....

I know where you can find some postcards of the Shakopee Mudcura Sanitarium. Your photos were very nice and I wonder if you have any info on it other than what you posted. I also think I remember seeing it several times as a kid just drive'n by and wondering what it was before it was torn down.

I think that the lack of site updates is due to the fact that the Morlocks have taken Max Action & Crew into captivity and turned them into their love slaves. Bwahahaha!!

I have been in many of these places over the last 30 years. And I am not homeless. I started the exploration in the late 60's. Piranesi was there too. Lots of great stuff is long gone. Will the new ruins be as cool as the old ones? I am involved in recycling some of these very cool places. I have mixed emotions: they are certainly at their best as dramatic and evocotive places in the abandoned state, but most will eventually be destroyed completely. Is that a regretable thing? Is part of the appeal that they are dieing and will not endour? Can they be saved and take on a new life without losing all of their power? Can urban life and death coexist? Is illicite discovery by a few elitist or is discovering "abandoned" places one of our societies myths like the myth of discovering the "wilderness"?

You have a very cool site here! I really like all the photos you have, and its really nice to see all the great places there are to explore in the area. Yet I was surprised that there were no photos or references to the big mill on the West bank. You know, the one with the big "GOLD MEDAL FLOUR" sign on it. I have explored that building extensively and it is awesome. Or I should say it WAS awesome, now they have got some kind of construction goin on in it and security is way up.

ive been crawling around sewers and abandoned buildings and jumping across rooftops for years now and i thought i had been everywhere but obviously i havent.i have been a couple places you guys havent but you still got me beat.i thought me and my friends were crazy cause i had never met anyone else who liked the danger and excitement of what i call "innocent law-breaking". this is definitely one of the best ways to spend a night that would have otherwise been spent on whiskey and video games.

I lived in Southern New Jersey all my life. I was raised in Camden. Know I in Sicklerville, about 40 miles from Atlantic City.
Tonight I just got an email with Essex Mountain Santatorium. I never new this place existed before tonight. I went through mostly all the pictures and Tales told by People going up there (The Mountain). At night??? I know it must of been really scarey.
Thank you for sharing the entire site with me, much appreciated.

I explored some when I was a kid in Minneapolis years ago. Saw the hobo jungles, NSP tunnel and stuff, but we never had your mobility or resources. Max and the rest....you got *ballz* goin' in some a them places. Raw sewage, collapsed tunnels, asbestos contamination--! That's some serious risk, and I admire your taking it straight on.

Another site on the Urban Exploration webring explores the Cane Hill asylum in south London. Their attitude's just the opposite of yours: "...scary...shat our pants...too dangerous...decided too risky..." *That* in a place above ground in broad daylight!

Since Action Squad's been going since '97, I guess you'll be giving it up one day. But you'll always be able to look back...and wonder, "WHAT THE HELL WERE WE THINKING??" ;D

Wishing you lots more adventures,
Demo

Your so called FACTS on the State Hospital was actually FICTION. I think you were a tad bit too scared to actually venture deep into the tunnels. Despite the fact you couldn't find your way around the tunnels or buildings, there was so much more to see.
By the way, the State Hospitals were NEVER SHUT DOWN. The one in Cambridge has some of the most VIOLENT, PSYCHOTIC residents in that are more intiguing then any of your adventures.
By the way all of the OLDER ORIGINAL State Hospitals have tunnels in them. There is actually some idiots out there that are trying to get the gov. to attempt to fill them in.
The U Tunnels now have a few extra security cameras in them. BEWARE ONLY THE SMART GET OUT UNTOUCHED!
Those who bring with face masks to breath in live a lot long then those who breath in the wrong substances.

Despite all of that your adventures seem to be as fun as mine.
GOOD LUCK

I took a break from writing a paper for my urban studies class to surf the net. I found this site and couldn't stop reading the journals from each of the expeditions. Two hours later in exausted and my paper is left half done. I guess i was doing a sort of urban study.... I'm a cities native, studying out here at UWGB. Keep up the good work...

Peace

I wish you had pictures of Hellhouse. Every year we would drive by it on the way to Granite Falls to visit the grandparents, and every year I sat in the car, fixated on one of the world's most frightening buildings. This was where all the evil in the world MUST'VE conglomerated! I wonder when the name "Hellhouse" came about. My dad told me that was it's name the first time we went past, and this was the 70's.

I also spent half a day temping in Rosemount right next to the munitions factory (around 1994). I drove in there after immediately quitting, determined to explore the stacks, and was very close when security caught up with me and forced me to leave. Damn.

Incredible site. If I weren't claustrophobic, out of shape and 6'5", I would love to go into those places that I've been drawn to all my life. When I look at a block of old buildings, I have never seen the buildings, but rather the spaces in between, the negative space and the hidden spots. When you walk along a river, you don't see the water but instead wonder what you MIGHT find if you were to dive in and start looking for caves or secret entrances. I dunno, seems like there are many people who project their desires for an alternate world on this one we live in, which leads to a great mental fantasy that will likely never be seen by any of us... Too bad.

You people are fucking crazy! (I like that atribute.) I'm an old spielunker, so I appreciate much of your adventures. I surfed in via google while looking for some pictures of belly buttens and came up with your site under "tasteful nude pictures." (The lady neked in the sewer has a great bod!) I'm a correctional officer at a prison built in 1836 which is loaded with tunnels. Wish you were closer-you could check our security! LOL! Just a note, what you do is dangerous as hell, especially in sandstone. watch yer ass! You write extremely well and I'd hate to loose you now that I've found you. Alas, I'm an old fart, or I'd be tempted to join you.

I was back out in the lands a couple days ago and decided to see if there was a website - when I found your website (8/7/02) I had to laugh at the great pictures. As a resident of Rosemount, and dating a girl whose family used to rent a little shed (that the u tore down years ago) in an area called 'South Beef' in the U-lands (close to the large antenna). So I was out there almost everyday - (and when questioned by the police I had an excuse to be out there - just claimed to be lost) So Seing the pictures brought back a lot of memories. (I started tunnel ratting at age 14 and have slowed down but not stopped (25 now) exploring the old munition plant.) There are some more cool areas, and tunnels, (not the ones by the stacks) - some blocked off or real nasty to wade through. I just don't quite remember where I found them, normally drank when out there.
One thought I had is once when I was 17, and getting qustioned by the u security and Rosemount police, security took me back to an old office building with old aerial pictures on the walls of the plant back in the 40's. We talked to a lady who seemed to be in charge of the land, and instead of a getting a ticket, she gave us many packets of info and pictures. (told her we were doing a school project). U-land security also told us he had worked there for many, many years and knew things like when the plant was closing, the people just dug holes next to the railroad tracks and pushed the boxcars into the holes "filled with ungodly stuff" then buried them. I asked what they were filled with and he wouldn't say. (Bullets, Gunpowder, explosives, chemicals??) I don't see railroad tracks out there, but in the old aerial photo I saw many tracks, and always find railroad stakes to this day. The guy also said there are more tunnels than you cold ever guess at -and one is supposidly so large - you could drive two trucks side by side underground out there. I've searched the other web sights and have not found any of the info these packets had. My friend moved years ag
