  1. I have also seen those used in road construction (not sure why), although I am sure they can have multiple uses.
  2. Ah ok gotcha. Nice, punk is pretty cool :-P Also I grew up with bluegrass although it's been a long time sense I've heard any of it. I also like folk and some contemporary. You've got lots of colors in your musical taste nice.
  3. Wow never would have guessed. Google is a pain to deal with :-P Also, really? What bands do you listen to? I like most sub-genre's of metal but I usually listen to the Christian bands. You'd be surprised at the variety if you look hard enough! I like thrash too, but also the heavier sub-genre's as well.
  4. Wow this is some great tips. Thank you, really! I have one channel up but it's just starting out and it's primarily centered around Christian metal and metal. But I love exploring so much so I just gotta open another one.
  5. Sometimes I do try to follow a Lent diet, it just depends on the situation. Most of my diets change in variation depending on the type of Feast Day that I'm observing at the time. Other times I usually just follow a regular diet. And Ok thank you! I don't currently have an active exploring Youtube channel at the moment, but I do plan on it in the future God willing. Also, Explore just went live again just to let you know.
  6. That is interesting. I typically don't eat a Kosher diet unless I feel the need to. Or unless I am observing Passover, sense I also follow the Messiah's teachings as well as the Torah to the best of my ability. I personally am not in any denomination either, however I do like to congregate with other believers when I am able to (This includes regular Christians as well as Messianic Jews when they're around). And yes there's only a small handful of mainstream holidays that I'll be celebrating as well, (like how you mentioned the 4th of July). However I do get together with other family on Christmas, but I don't celebrate it as the Messiah's birth anymore, sense Yahushua was born sometime in September. Which is called Sukkot. Tbh I didn't expect to be talking about this :3 However I am grateful that there are some other believers here besides me, although I typically can get along with non-religious folk as well. :-P But yeah I imagine you've had enough of my Jewish talk lol.
  7. Nice to meet you dery, that is very interesting. I myself was not raised up Jewish but was raised in a Pentecostal Christian household. It wasn't until fairly recently that I began to embrace the Jewishness of the Faith. Honoring the Holy Feast Days, the Shabbat (Sabbath) etc. I also have Celtic ancestors from Ireland. Thank you for the advice! I will be sure to take those precautions. I don't like to break into places or jump fences :3
  8. Hey everyone, I just joined a little while ago. I'm nineteen, also religious (Messianic Jewish Christian) although I prefer not to use that word. I have been interested in exploring sense I was real young, I remember always getting in trouble at 7 years old for going and exploring an abandoned house across the street. Not that anyone thought I would do anything, but it was falling apart and my parents always worried I would get myself hurt haha. I'm also into Metal (the music genre) so that's another big thing I'm interested in. Anyways, nice forum you got here! Reminds me a lot of the old Star Wars HQ website (R.I.P), oh yeah, I like Star Wars too. ^-^ Also, that's an abandoned school in the picture below. :3 Too bad it's locked or I would go inside! I also hope to learn more about the art of exploration. Although I have always been interested in exploring practically my whole life, it has been a rarity for me to actually just get out and just explore. So, hopefully you guys and gals can teach me some things ^-^, basic things to know, tips, what to look out for, how to avoid danger, explorer's code etc. etc.. Anyways, thanks for taking the time to read this if you've made it this far. I look forward to speaking with you all and knowing everyone! Hope you all have a great and blessed day/night!

    • Surprise Canyon, California
      Recently, I’ve been going through my old VHS video tapes and digitizing them to DVDs.  These tapes contain my travels and explorations between 1995 and 2009.  I thought I’d start releasing some video shorts of my early travels on this forum.

      The back story for this particular video is as follows.  On March 30, 1996, I made a short hike of about a mile and a third up the lower third of Surprise Canyon, on the western slopes of the Panamint Range, Inyo County, California.  This canyon is just outside of Death Valley National Park.  This canyon has running water running year round through the stretch shown, fed by substantial Limekiln Springs, and the canyon is a water wonderland.  For those not familiar with the area, refer to the two maps.  The first one shows the canyon in relation to the region, the other a close up of the canyon and the ghost town of Panamint City.  The blue line in the close up image shows the route that was taken.

    • Exploration Field Trips - March 31-April 2, 2000 - Into the Nevada Triangle with Lew Shorb
      My next series of videos will be based on a trip in 2000 that I took with Lew Shorb.  Lew is a board member here, as well as owner of the popular website http://www.ghosttownexplorers.org/ghost.htm

      In breaking with my past habit of culling out historical sites and ghost towns and creating short videos dealing with these, I decided to keep the exploring part of Explore Forums in and create videos of each day of my travel and exploration, including our camps.  Scenery, travel, camping ghost towns and wide open spaces.

      Part one of this series, as well as subsequent videos, will all appear here within this same thread. Part I will start in my garage, where I was finishing up with the packing my truck.  The following day, after work, I begin my travels to meet Lew Shorb at Rhyolite, Nevada ghost town.

      Our three day, two night travels prowled about the "Nevada Triangle" section of northeastern Death Valley National Park; and will include such sites as:

      1. The Las Vegas & Tonopah Railroad
      2. Gold Bar
      3. Phinney Mine
      4. Strozzi Ranch
      5. Currie Well (LV&T RR)
      6. Mud Springs Summit (LV&T RR)
      7. Happy Hooligan Mine

      This video, that of March 30th and 31st, will start off this series; and is brief, only being 3:28 long.  Nevada-Triangle_Shorb-2000_Part-1.wmv

      So, below is my narrative of part one of this series to give full context of what is seen in the video.  It will probably take longer to read than the video is long.

    • Exploration Field Trips: May 1-3, 2000 - Trip with Alan Patera and Alan Hensher into Death Valley
      Exploration Field Trips:
      May 1-3, 2000
      Trip with Alan Patera and Alan Hensher into Death Valley

      What do you do with three authors, two 4x4’s, two two-way radios, three cameras, and camping supplies? Send them to Death Valley, of course. For three days in the first week of May, 2000, fellow authors and historical researchers Alan Patera, Alan Hensher and myself explored Death Valley north and south.

      Alan Patera writes and publishes the WESTERN PLACES series of monograph books.  Alan Hensher has been published in several periodicals as well as authoring several books, centering primarily on the history of Mojave Desert sites.

      Alan Patera, who hails from Oregon, came south to California and picked up Alan Hensher; then the two came my way. At the time I was living in Ridgecrest, California. After overnighting with my wife and I, the three of us took off for Death Valley.  Alan was busy researching and photographing for a future edition of WESTERN PLACES, this time centering on the camps of the Funeral Range, which forms the eastern border of east central Death Valley.  Circumstances and changes of our journey lead Alan to plant the seeds of two more future books, this time centering just outside the northernmost section of Death Valley.

      This is the trip that I consider to be my favorite trip I have ever undertaken.  It had been in the planning stages since the previous December.  Originally, quite a number of people were invited and had semi-committed themselves to come along.  Over time, however, eventually the number of people whose semi-commitments became firm commitments to this trip narrowed to four.  And I was one of them.

      Below, a list of historic locations we visited – in the order that we visited them:

      1. Bodie & Benton Railway, California.
      2. Stillwater, Nevada.
      3. White Cloud City (Coppereid), Nevada.
      4. Unionville, Nevada.
      5. Midas, Nevada.
      6. Spring City, Nevada.
      7. Paradise Valley, Nevada.
      8. Buckskin, Nevada.
      9. National, Nevada.
      10. Delamar, Idaho.
      11. Silver City, Idaho.
      12. Rio Tinto, Nevada.
      13. Pattsville, Nevada.
      14. Aura, Nevada.
      15. Cornucopia, Nevada.
      16. Edgemont, Nevada (from a distance – on private property)
      17. White Rock, Nevada (from a distance – on private property)
      18. Tuscaurora, Nevada.
      19. Dinner Station, Nevada.
