Have enjoyed reading your adventures over the past year or so since an old Purdue buddy and fellow veteran of small recon trips showed me what a large scale operation could accomplish . continued success.

Thank you for the teapot story. Incredible. I have been in Jungian analysis for 3 years, so talking about synchronicity is like talking about the weather. Teapots happen.

I was reading the blog of Meander at Sweet Tea & Synchronicity last night. She mentioned your teapot story and how it affected her. I was hellbent on finding you on the web, so I went back through all her posts and clicked the links for all her commenters. I couldn't find you.

Then today out of the blue I got an email from a DIFFERENT friend who doesn't know Meander or read her blog (that I know of) with a link to your teapot story. No text in her email, just the link.

Teapots happen. K

AWESOME!!!! what you guys do looks totaly awesome!!! infact, i'm gonna try to get some of my friends to do this stuff with me. we're always complaining about how there isn't much to do in baltimore and so we just usualy end up going to the movies, playing video games, or acting like idiots. but THIS looks like something that we could do!!!
maryland has tons of old crumbling factories and dilapidated buildings! i'm going to see about involving 2 or 3 friends And doing this! while i'm not sure if i'm up to "walking waist deep through sewage ", i can't wait.
do you guys have any tips or anything for us when we start out?

Hi,

Just thought I would drop you a note to let you know
that I have greatly enjoyed reading all of the
missions on your site.

After reading the Stahlmann's Brewery Cellars
missions, however, I felt a need to contact you and
let you know (if you didn't already) that YOU GUYS ARE
FUCKING CRAZY! Raw sewage, cockroaches, huge rats,
deadly amounts of methane, and incrdibly tight crawl
spaces... wow. Anyway thanks for doing it, though
because SOMEONE has to. : )

Kudos on the site and your accomplishments. Keep up
the good work and keep the updates coming.

Thanks again for the entertainment

I really enjoyed checking out the photos from Abbott Hospital! I worked right across the street for three months and would look over there everyday thinking " I'd love to see the inside of that place! " Now you've made that reality for me. Thanks!

Many of your adventures have hit home for me! I travel through Minnesota frequently. I always passed by HellHouse when it was standing. The abandoned structures of Uland was another area that you shined some light on without My having to explore. Keep up the great work and the cool website.

Hi Max
Good to see you back again. The experience with the teapots was interesting reading, more than a coincidence, hard to describe.

I hope you investigate more places, I like reading about them, I am trying to get permission by someone to photograph the abandoned power plant in St Paul.

good luck to you

Apologies for the bad american or english Esxploration at me way is in a way that is overexpored so we have to look at these websites. Please Please keep doing this stuff so that exploration over at my way can still read youes websute with the greatest of love.
Yours are many thanks till we come and visit again ,When we see the books we have for changing my language into yours it still isnt the same. So i hope this understanding in our reading is not overexposed.
Most of the books served up were of little use here except the clinical science of mineral therapy which showed the rocks and minerals we explored which showed the constraints of the journey and the elemantal neture of what is going on her BUT woith that said you have done an expert job with this website and I commend all your actoins. I am sorry that my American is not good.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU in your american way.

I loved the teapot story. I have also experienced some "coincidences" since my father has passed that don't always seem to be just that. Your stories always inspire and it was a nice read on a lazy Sunday morning. :-)

I've been following you guys for a few years off and on. You have the best information along with pictures, about the places you've been. I've lived in the Twin Cities my entire life, and have seen some of the places you guys have been in the 7 years I have been into urban exploration. Sadly the people I used to go with are no longer around so I don't get as much time as I would like. I love the details that are included in the stories, gives the reader the feeling they are there, some of us have been there ;)

I just enjoyed reading the report pertaining to Cobb's Cave. Please consider these two suggestions.
Number 1. Purchase and learn how to use vertical rope gear.
Number 2. Ditch the little black squares pasted over the faces of folks in the pictures.
Cheers,
JimBo

Just bumped into this site while trying to find some history on Hellhouse. I used to hang out with a group of people and do almost the same exact thing you guys do (only less orginized probably) about 8 years ago or so. We were at Hellhouse probably a good 10-15 times. That ladder off the catwalk, to the roof, with nothing under it to land on, brings new meaning to scary. So many funny stories getting chased out of there by those rednecks that lived next door. And trying to hold our hands over our flashlights, to avoid being seen from the nonstop patrol of cops from outside. We had to park at the cemetary down the road a half mile, because cops seemed to know all the places around the house.
We also did the Lillydale caves quite a bit, before those kids died there a couple years ago. And I got into the old Sears building on Lake Street, before renovation started on it.
Some of the old grain buildings all along the east side of Hiawatha are really cool to check out, as well.
I think the coolest place ever I checked out was the Goldfield Hotel in Goldfield, Nevada. The whole town is almost totally abandoned, with maybe 50 residents left, yet all the buildings are still in place, furnished, with no occupants in some cases for 40 years.
I think the place I wanted to see more than any other, was the Grain Belt brewery in North East Minneapolis. I could kick myself for not getting there before they renovated it.

I hope the fellow who died in the fall in the grain elevator this past weekend wasn't associated with your group. It's morbid, but perhaps some sort of tribute section of your site could refer to places where other urban adventurers died?

I like your website alot. It is neat to see what some places are like inside such as the Hamm's Brewery in St Paul. Such places are always so mysterious and you do a great job of capturing that mystriousness on film.
Thanks

hi it must be about 8 years ive known about AS ive done lots of same adventures cambridge, u of m steam tunnles, triple helix to name a few. this was not condoned by you. simply our group crossing paths. Most of you have met me but never formaly. Ive startled you a few times and you I. You have even let me drink water from your flask before I vanished into the night. Something got me back on your site here not important. ..... this is aside from comments there has always been aplace you mentioned that I was strangly curious in. you spoke of "the hole in the woods" was this anything at all? where is it? and on that note Ive always tried to get into nicollet island manhole but must have surched for days weeks frustration! we gave up maby once a year look casualy. If you could kindly E-mail me anything extra on these two subjects appritiation would be mucho!....... anyway its nice to see 911 and our back stabbing gov has not stopped urban adventures or the action squad.

Love the black bar prank! Did you know that when the Kampus Kops stop shady-looking people on campus, they don't ask about drugs, they don't ask about stolen bikes or area muggings, they just ask "Are you kids in Action Squad?". Thanks for totally redefining the mission of the UMPD!

I love to pop in on your site now and then. Reminds me of when I was a kid and we used to love to explore abandoned places. Now I'm a middle aged mom, and have to live the grown up life. Man, I miss that! The tingling in the pit of your stomach... Who knows, maybe some day I'll start a group of grandma explorers. Keep doing it for those that can't. The Action Squad rocks!

This site is fascinating and well-done! I have never heard of anything like this but I have always been an explorer at heart (although raised in the country, not the city) ...but Surprise! ...I am a 38-year-old married, mother of three boys ages 11, 8, and 7 (not your typical reader perhaps). My boys like to explore too so they will be fascinated by this website although I won't be encouraging them to do what you're doing Ü. Thanks for doing it for us though! I have already read about many of your explorations and plan to read some more. The sewer/brewery caves adventure is what caught my attention and I couldn't stop reading. I am amazed at your tenacity, determination, and bravery...great qualities to have...just be careful! Blessings to you in the future.
