I Have just stumbled across your activities after reading David Morrells book, "Creepers" which left me wanting to know more. I Didn't realise I was one of you in my Youth, finding myself lost in an Abandoned Gasworks by my parents at age 6 in the UK then Coming to South Africa to find we lived near an abandoned mine, discovering all the Diagonal Shafts and ventilation shafts and caves in the Mine dumps (Very Dangerous we were to learn later when Friends were killed in a cave in of the Soft Cyanide Laced Yellow Sand).Now the Mine shafts are all covered by Industrial areas and the Land reclaimed for it's industrial value and the Mine dumps reclaimed for their plentiful gold that the old techniques couldn't completely recover. Possibly still some access to those shafts but at age 47 I'm too old to get involved again but non the less fascinated by your endeavours. Keep up the good work.

Ha, very cool. This reminds me of when I was back in college in the 1980s we had heard of the "steam tunnel" legend from other campuses. One night after quite a bit of beer (back in the 80s, you always started stuff like this by drinking and smoking pot. Times change I guess) we went looking for anything similar at UNCA. What we found was a storm drain system that lead us about 100 feet underground. We found we could traverse the campus with them although some of the pipe required crawling.

Have fun guys, wish I was old and fat now or I'd go with you.

Awsome Site, and Do you know of any places in mankato to go urban eploxering? I have found some small caves and some big drainage tunnels, but nothing to spectacular. I did hear rumors though of some tunnels that were left over from an old mankato brewery.

I was rather sad to see that Hafner's is no longer extant. I have many memories from there. I used to cut class from a nearby high school, walk down the hill, and play strange arcade games there, games I never saw anywhere else before or since: Victory Road, Time Soldiers and another whose name I can't remember. I looked Hafner's up because I wondered if they were still around. I'm sorry to see that they aren't. That place was drenched with memories for me. Those memories will never change.

BTW I've been in many of the underground locations you mention here.

Ashtray is *sadly* in jail, Oliver and I however are in San Fransisco. If you're ever in the area let me know and we'll show you the real Twist Family experience. You went to our home (that particular squt building), they tore them down a couple months ago. I miss the Gensonian. The smell of black mold is still slightly comforting to me, I think to Oliver and Ashtray too. Well done piece on Seattle, good to know my brothers could show you a good time.

Hi.

The War that is about to start in Iran ain't a War against Osama Bin Laden nor his regim it's about the super power countries getting their hands on Oil from pipe lines.

What they tell you on the News ain't all true they mean well though they don't have all our best interest at heart.

George Bush President of the US gets his news from Washington D.C. Sky Three News live he got the bit about Iraq 2 days later from Sky Three News live from Washington D.C. Time 10:32pm
UK time.

When I was watching that on Sky Three News at my mates house no Special nor Visual Effects was used on Sky Three News not on that type of programme cause it is a political broadcast serious.

I know the fact that at that time I saw two Reptilians one on second row behind white hair talking man that was very big in weight and very tall. Couldn't see his face.

The Reptilian on second row has 3 holes in each unhuman fingers and a blue device of some sort.

The other is the white hair man that was talking for them who did a gulp that wasn't just a gulp it was a Reptilian forming.

Those ones are manipulating you to believe what you see on the News that it ain't really about getting Osama Bin Laden and his regim.

First they say that about Iraq Afghanistan and other countries then there's other aired programmes about Oil been exported soon from Iran.

Good look to those in Iran.

We're not the criminals here.

I cannot tell you what to believe.

You have to see for yourselves.

You have to see to believe.

Thank you for your time you took on making this site, I enjoyed it very much, even if I'm not just a guy from nowhere, I'm a successful businessman, although not quite rich enough for a retirement. But I digress, it's very professional and neatly done. My compliments.

There are some caves at Quary Hill in Rochester. They bared them up a while back. Stories of a food shelter then some sort of a make-shift hospital from around the last turn of the century circulate. I think they still do tours in them, although not that much in there to look at, find the hidden passage is pretty sweet.

It may well be that action squad as we have known it has run it's course. This happens. Families sometimes go their separate ways as do friends. One thing is for certain; nothing stays the same forever. For those of us who have read the stories and adventures contained in these pages with a childlike awe, so wishing to be part of the experience in person, we say simply thank you. To be where no one has been in a very long time, to stand where people used to move mountains, to recreate in our minds a building at it's most prosperous time and to see how far the mighty have fallen....that ladies and gentlemen is truly an awesome thing. As long as we have the overwhelming desire to learn about the past and to wonder how it used to be, there is hope yet. Keep the faith!!!!!!!

I liked the pictures of the old Hamms brewery. Wish more people documented the old mills and elevators that used to be a part of the cities history before they were razed.

Great Site! Its sad to see places like the Hillcrest Bowling center just forgotten and left to fade away. I used to work as a security guard at one of our local mall in New York. The mall management bought out the Howard Johnson motel next door to the mall for a proposed lot expansion. For a short time I had full access to the property and took full advantage of it to explore. It look as if the staff had just went home and forgot to reopen the next day. All the rooms were made up as if waiting for the next guest to arrive. There was an adjoining restaurant ( The Blacksmith Shop ). It had a semi stocked bar and I had to shut off the bun warmers as they were still on. The rooms were nice. The cable t.v. was still hooked up! The bathrooms had spa style bathtubs. Like I said before the rooms all had been freshly made up unbeknown to the fate that was soon to befall them. There was a beautiful pool room ( pool heaters still on ) and a jacuzzi. There was a Tropicana style lounge in one end of the pool room. The whole room had tons of tropical trees planted in large planters all around the pool. There was a game room that still had working arcade machines in it. It took about one week after the mall took possession of the property for someone to break in and smash some of the rooms to shit. Mall management then worked day and night for two months stripping the entire motel of all its fixtures ( lots of dirty deals were made management, lots of money crossed hands ). Soon after management made their money, someone set fire to the south wing and pool room. A year after that someone set fire to the Blacksmith Shop destroying the entire north wing ( also contained the front lobby ). The north wing has been torn down and most of the building has been sealed up with plywood. The mall never expanded to the motel property and the building is nothing more than a tax write off. Its a shame that we are such a wasteful society.

As a former urban adventurer, I can say this site is a great compilation of resources. I like the way you can cleverly explain to everyone such an activity that is seen as obtuse to many. I believe in time and through examination these photos and stories should be added as a reference to the history of Minnesota.

I just discovered your website while looking for brewery calenders. I am a real beer nerd and really enjoyed the photos and stories of the Hamms brewery. Your website is very cool, I enjoy exploring old buildings but, it's pretty hard to do it these days. I remember exploring the old cleveland union terminal in the early 80's before they re-modeled the whole place.

cheers,
Bill J.

I found this website while researching a dopey term paper on the steam tunnels under the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Thanks for brightening up my finals week. The writing on this site, incidentally, is excellent and every last entry seems cooler than the last. Also, the shirts and outfits of the explorer crew (especially in those early entries) are giving me all sorts of flashbacks to my own carefree 2000-2001 punk rock teenagerhood (haven't quiiiiite suppressed it yet).

your friend in the Windy City,
Allison
