    On March 10th, Youtube decided to demonetize my entire channel. Not a huge deal, my channel has taken a real beating since a certain copycat moron recruited a bunch of haters, by making false accusations against me (it's still ongoing). Still, I am at just about at 60k subscribers, and it pisses me off. I can live without the $100USD a month I was getting, however it did help fund my fuel costs for my next trip. I got the "We found that a significant portion of your channel is not in line with our YouTube Partner Program policies." story. More specifically: "Reused content In most cases, you can’t reupload someone else's content unless you get permission first. Remember: It's not enough to credit the content owner or state that "no copyright infringement is intended." Learn more about copyright and fair use Here are some types of content that are subject to copyright: Audiovisual works like TV shows and movies Sound recordings and musical compositions Visual and written works, including paintings, posters, articles and books Dramatic works such as plays and musicals Video games and computer software" The only guess I have, I had one video on my channel I didn't own, a popular Area 51 documentary by National Geographic WHICH NATGEO HAD MONETIZED. And the video had been on my channel for 3 years. Bob put me on to a video that might have helped get it reinstated, instead of waiting 30 days to apply again, but it required a lot of bitching and moaning to Youtube. If you are lucky they might listen. Frankly I really don't have the time for it. At this point all I can do is reapply in April, and hope that I have cleansed my channel of that video, they will allow monetization again. I have no idea what else it might be, all my videos are 100% my content, with only royalty free music.

    Good answer! When I see posts like the above, the poster having joined likely just to do so, then the hair on my back also raises. Except because the request - blunt with no apparent humbleness - is probably for instant gratification without willingness to do their own research. And, these young Millenials just seem to have no respect for helping maintain places explored, but only want to exploit them with the least amount of time and energy for their latest You Tube video.

    Hello everyone. I found this site after watching EWU on YouTube for the past few years. I'm a 911 dispatcher, and I play with maps all day when we aren't busy. I have been exploring since I was a kid. My dad would take me out to find arrowheads and other native american artifacts. I was hoping to meet some others from around my area (central Alabama) to explore with. It's getting hard for me to find places that are public. I would love to explore Parker Island. It's located right outside of Ft. Toulouse. The only way to it is by boat. To my understanding, it is privately owned.

    Area 51 tunnel video

    Located in Nevada and yes, it has a name I've been there a couple of times now, camped out each time and only ventured in about 30 feet into the tunnels before the hair on the back of my neck tells me to GTFO. I'm not in the habit of giving out locations, sorry, seen quite a few places get destroyed once word gets out and big groups of people start going. It's happened locally and it sucks.

    New to the forum

    Hey everyone, new to the Forum. Living in Las Vegas with my husband and 17 year old son. We love to get out and explore the desert, find ghost town, mines, and random stuff. We drive a wrangler and like to test her out on the weekends. We recently came across EWU videos and have been binge watching. If anyone knows of great hidden gems we need to check out let me know! I’m excited to find new places! People really don’t realize how much cool history is out here!

    I believe they leave them standing hoping that someone will come along to buy the buildings. There were several purchased by a church in Green. The justification for building new was always that it would cost more to fix the current buildings, yet somehow they are usable for a church school with no substantial rehab.

    Very nice! Amazing what can be seen by getting up in the air, things otherwise invisible or nearly so at ground level.

    Very nice production! I enjoyed it very much. Nice and smooth video and flight. Looking forward to part 2.

    I enjoyed that video! I saw a number of ruins of building sites from the air that I’ve not seen on the ground in my previous visits. I think a drone makes a good addition to the ghost towner’s toolbox.

    I agree they do need to bring back manual transmissions. Unfortunately all vehicles are getting worst and worst each year instead of getting better. All the technology there putting in vehicles is making them less reliable. Even Toyota's are going down hill in reliability.

    After reapplying, I've been re-accepted back into the Youtube Partner Program. Looks like the NatGeo video was what set off their algorithm. After that video being on my channel for over 3 years.

    Area 51 tunnel video

    Most people haven't the slightest clue about personal security, they'll post everything online without even thinking about it and then whine to mamma government to do something about ID theft and all of the other problems caused by their narcissistic actions. Separating the clueless from the clued in is difficult, best default position IMO is to not share anything.

    A morgan, couple indian heads, and lots of clad. Tons of pull tops and bottle caps. So if you go use a small coil. I think I was using my MXT and my TDI. Nothing was super deep. Good trashy site to tune your skills.

    Area 51 tunnel video

    Such a bummer not to be able to come right out and share a location. Person on the other end might go there and not do anything but take photos and walk around but then you get that one person who opens the floodgates to problems Wish I could meet up with Bob and explore those tunnels, be way safer than going in by myself which is why I always end up turning around.

    ^^ I like how you're a 'new explorer' now.. 😉 If there's ever a plan to make a concerted effort, I've got another rider who would likely be up for it..

    So we explored this place because there is so many sources saying that Mark Twain lived in this small town as he once wrote about in his book “Roughing It.” There was even a NV historical marker at this location. But was it actually his cabin? There is so much speculation on it now with such little evidence I’m not sure we can be sure.

    Ruger Security-9

    Sex offenders "should" pop up on a geographical search though megan's list. However many register illegally as transients to prevent themselves from showing on a geographical search and will only display in specific name searches or county wide searches. They should be given a rating between -3 and 10 (10 being the worst) in relation to recidivism risk but often offenders from longer ago don't have ratings regardless of how bad their crime may of been because it was before they gave ratings. While going out there, doing a story, and exposing or doxing (they are required by law to do so themselves) should be perfectly legal in the case of sex offenders I would tread lightly if there is an isolated community of them that is less of a public safety concern in the circumstances they have chosen for themselves. While it may be an interesting story I would be cautious of disclosing the location and people. Even though it would be perfectly OK to do so, probably do not want to piss off a group of people of that nature that may not be to far from your home base in the same state as you. Particularly with your girls. Back to speaking on shooting... Woohoo! We can have normal magazines again in CA... for the time being. I consulted with the mag wizard and his high speed spinning spiral wand and it seems I now have dozens of regular magazines again!

    Intro Cleveland

    Lived in Canton for 15 years. Anything left of geaga lake? I recall the old military ammo dumps along a highway to the east of Cleveland if I recall... pretty sure that's all closed off. Welcome to EF!
