I greatly enjoy this site, since the police here are everywhere, and there is mass amounts of jail time connected with being caught in tunnels, and buildings don't stay abandoned for more then a few weeks without being demolished (trying to keep the city shiny and new for tourists), we don't get the chance to explore many things. I especally enjoy this site because of the excellent telling of events so one could imagine quite vividly what it would be like to be there. I loved the tea pot story, and most rescently the seattle story, fantastic when shit like that happends. Anyway just thought I'd speak my appreciation for your site, it's very well done.

Ok, man. You're going to have to write a book. There's really no way around it. It's obvious you have writing skills, combined with innumerable stories and observations. Just a book about your explorations would've been good enough, but adding to that all these great coincidences that keep happening -- you have to write a book. This isn't flattery, it's fact. I would read that shit HARD, sir.

Your trip to seattle underground sounded cool, but for not that much you could have just taken the tour. My brother lives out there and took me on the tour once, it was really cool. They also tell you all about how seattle got it's underground and about what happened to the drunks at night during the reconstruction of the roads. Keep adding stuff man, you and this site have been like idols to my boyfriend and I. As well as very insperational. Thanks.

Wow, this site is so awesome. I have always been interested in exploring stuff that is off limits, tunnels, old hotels, etc. I also very much like the respectful way that you explore, without disrupting, stealing or vandalizing, to leave it as you found it. Something I have always wanted to explore is the Baker Hotel & basement, in Mineral Wells, TX, if you haven't heard of it, it has a website. I love the way that you write, too.

Wow, your update on on your site, really moved me. It is as always, a great way to escape the everyday chaos of the day to day work. You might be missing your calling doing what you are doing. Your writing is very good and it has a way of transporting the reader to where ever you are writing about. although I am almost 40, a family man who lives in a suburbia and drives a gas guzzling SUV to daycare, work, daycare and home again. your experiences that you write about are better then a good Steven King novel. and the fact is he writes about fiction, and you write about real experiences and real forgotten places is awesome. I hope you always manage a update now and then. and if you should decide to ever write a book, I would like to be in line to buy the first copy.

Glad you enjoyed your trip to Seattle.
About the jaywalking thing: Besides the fact that most Seattleites are timid as is and follow the rules to the letter, Seattle cops are notorious about ticketing you for jaywalking, and on top of the fine you actually have to go to 'walker's ed' - how humiliating.
And as for "umbrella capital", no true Seattleite would use one. I've lived here all my life, and I don't even own one, nor does my family.
Next time you're here, if you have some extra time, I've heard that the oldFisher Flour</a&rt; factory is pretty interesting</a&rt;, although it may not have long left</a&rt;.

I just LOVE how you write! Yet again, I could not stop reading of your latest adventure in life and in Seattle. The whole time I read, I was thinking that you might possibly become very rich if you should ever decide to write a book about your life--but in my view, you are already very rich with the gift you've been given by the Universe...the gift being your uncanny, deeply intuitive way of 'seeing' not just urban landscapes, but people. I love how you think so deeply, yet unpretentiously, about all of these things. If I had a talk show, I would like to interview you...Ü You would perhaps find me odd, if you met me, but we are not so different at heart, even though we may look that way outwardly. I hope you will continue to write and live from the passionate heart that you've been given! I pray you will find answers to all your questions. Keep seeking and continuing to inspire others just as you've inspired me.

I used to explore sites like this when I was in my teens and early 20's as a kid growing up in Edina. Facinating. I see that I was not alone.

Man, the memories of Hell House.
We went there back in 95-97 a ton. I remember the first time a friend told me about it - when we were always on the hunt for spooky shit to explore. I saw it from the car, and refused to go in.
Went back about a month later with about 6 people (including my girlfriend at the time) and she was so freaked out, I was only able to explore about 5 minutes, before she bitched about going back to the car.
We had the cops show up on us countless times, and got chased out by the hillbillies next door once (with dogs).
The ladder going up to the roof from the catwalk was some freaky shit.

Sucks turning 30, and thinking back about this stuff. Makes you want to do it all over again.

I think urban exploring is great as I do some myself. But I think that your pictures and comments tell a thousand words.. you're nothing more than a bunch of left-wing nut, America hating losers that need new hair cuts. You'd get more respect if you keep your hypocritical statements to yourselves.

Reading this site always makes me want to play Zork. Anyway, for tunes inspired by (among other things) Action Squad and for a virtual UX tour, check out our home page. It may help fill the void until Max's next update. (Speaking of, where are the UPMD disguise pix?)

What up my fellow adventurers! My name is Preacher and I am a part of the Minnesota based adventurer/research group known as the X-Pedition Men. We are on a quest for knowledge, knowledge of our world and our past. Besides conducting expeditions into abandoned buildings, we also investigate the paranormal aspects of this lovely state. We take great care and effort to dig up and explore the history of our fair state. I appreciate the concern of the Action Squad given to the environments that you guys have adventured into. Our history in Minnesota is crumbling apart because of the lack of responsibility on the state's part to protect it. We have to protect our history because others won't, so always adventure but never destroy!
-The Preacher
P.S. I am not very keen on leaving my e-mail, But I am curious about any haunted places you guys have seen, if you ever need any answers about the history of something, leave me a message on your site. I'll be around.

I used to work at the old Abbott Hospital site from 1984 to 1990.
When I worked there, the Ebenezer Society owned it. We took care of
people straight out of the hospital and before they went either home,
or to a standard nursing home. Lots of fractured hip and stroke
rehab, (many many little old ladies), a closed head injury ward
(plenty of young guys that didn't have the sense to put on a helmet
when they rode...) and a locked geriatric psychiatric unit (Don't
even ask....). I've heard that when the building was a hospital, the
place where we had the GeriPsych unit had been the maternity and
newborns ward. Third floor had a Palliative unit-we had a lot of
single guys dying there in their thirties back before the Virus was
called AIDS. I think it was HTLV-III back then, at least at first.

I found an old (circa 1920 or so) patient accounts book in the old
gift shop when I was nosing around. Turned it in to
Administration...I've always wondered what happened to it. Mrs.
Bessie Jones...November 14-28th...childbirth....$7.50 total. Lots of
entries like that.

We opened the place in 1984 after it had been decommissioned as a
hospital. I don't know when Ebenezer pulled out and it became City of
Lakes. Sometime after I left. But I bet I could tell you all kinds of
stories from when I was there. The tunnel used to lead to a medical
lab office that was located about a half a block away from the hospital.

When I was there, the basement was mostly therapy offices (Physical,
Occupational, Speech, Music...) God. Those pictures bring back
memories...especially the nasty green carpet on the third floor.

I am sure you know about this site.

The new owner took posession earlier this month. It's
a security and police training company. The plan is
to develop the site into a training center.

In just the past month the fence has been cut into
several times and most recently someone crashed the
gate open with a vehicle causing $2500+ in damages.
Not to mention the damage which other people have done
over the years.

The company has posted 24/7 security, with
instructions to arrest anyone on the site. These are
not rent-a-cops - they are the guys you see cruising
in Iraq, the "Military Contractors." They have
machine guns, nght vision, all sorts of tricks.
Dakota County Sheriff is offering their full support
as they are going to be using the site for training.

NOW, I am 99% sure that you and your crew have nothing
to do with these shenanigans - but I also know that
the Nike site has been an urban exploration
destination for a long time. If you could - put out
the word to community to STAY AWAY FROM THE FARMINGTON
NIKE SITE. It's no longer a safe place to explore.

Cool endeavors! Great adventures. I'm writing a post-apocalyptic story which involves survivors living in the skywalk complex ruins, due to extreme winter, but my hero loves to wander and the underground looks promising. Are there no underground trains or something a bit more modern as he likes to paint on walls? I ask you as you seem to know what's below the surface. Thanks for your site and insight. tvh

I emailed earlier in the evening. I worked in the old Abbott Hospital building from 1984 to 1990. Yeah, the view is pretty cool from the roof...almost lost my job one night because a bunch of us snuck up there after our shifts were over. The stories I could tell....

Very nice site! I've prowled pages about Urban Explorers ever since I stumbled across them awhile back. This site is quite good. I'm 54 and find your adventures interesting. I've always been fascinated by abandoned buildings -- but we have no basements here. (The ground water level is too high.) If I were you guys I think I'd make up a pack to carry containing rope, water, flares, extra supplies and something to check on air quality with. I've noticed that you seem to kinda walk in with nothing but a camera and flash lights. I have to say that you've crawled into some places that I'd certainly not have gone. Initially, the names you call yourselves made me figure you were a bunch of smart-arsed kids. I was very wrong -- as I prowled your website even more. So -- time to update with new adventures! Do take care.
