  1. The Bee Keepers House was found just north- east of Hamburg on a cold rainy December afternoon in 2018. Seems that the owner was into bee keeping and you can see evidence of that all around the place. It was here that I found my oldist fridge, and it wasn't empity :-). One of the biggest challenges for beekeepers in the last decade is the steep rise in the incidence of colony collapse disorder, especially among commercial hives. The winter of 2012-13 was particularly difficult; some beekeepers lost up to half their hives to this disorder, the causes of which are still not fully understood. Hope you enjoy watching this as much as I enjoyed exploring filming it. Peace. https://youtu.be/Rl59sGYmzOg
  2. Exploring Captain Per Larsen's Trawler Bar was filmed by chance as I was driving by a small village. There is no Captain Larsen, the trawler is not in a hole, it is just the trawler housing. I made it up as on the day that I edit this video, I was in a silly mood, still am. I think it was a great idea using a trawlers housing deck as a bar, but it is about location, wrong place to set it up and it will never had worked. But this is the first time on a trawler for me, even if it is not connected to the boat anymore. I found it fascinating. Hope you enjoy the video :-)https://youtu.be/VK42mVHHDrg
  3. https://youtu.be/ix9OSrS_7Ik Abandoned Goat Herders Home is filmed in Spain. I was taking picture's of a goat herder with his 60 goats (they were so cute and friendly) and he pointed me to a abandoned house that was once owned by a old man that died, whom himself was a goat herder. What a place, it had a wonderful view, old and with charm. Home you enjoy exploring it with me.
  4. Abandoned Russian Cookhouse - Built on Evil Ground, was a good find and a nightmare at the same time. At first we thought it was the officers building as it was a little way off from the other living blocks. But as it turned out it was the cookhouse. I popped in by myself while the others went into anther buildings, even before I went though the cellar window I felt nervous and fearfully by something. I heard and saw nothing while I was in there, but all the same I felt intimidated, and was glad when the others found me 20 minutes later. When i get a feeling I always just turn around and not enter, but seeing my friends were not so far from me I continue in. When we later looked the place up on the net, the name Carl Grossmann came up and we were horror-struck. Hope you enjoy the video. https://youtu.be/O4Tmj8J35cc
  5. https://youtu.be/PtkQmpa-7X0 We found 3 huts of the same design next to each other at a old Russian camp just north of Berlin. The first two cabins were ok but the last was falling down and the place was just too far gone to explore it too much. The first one had photo's of what we think are old Russian singers and film stars on the wall. I couldn't name one. Hope you enjoy
  6. An imposing building: known as the Amtshaus, it was once the castle of Flecken Zechlin. It is a listed building. Closed as a school in 1986 and since then has been empty and deserted. Exploring a Old School - A.D. 1721, was filmed in a small village in Germany called Flecken Zechlin. We stopped for the night to sleep in the car at the edge of a lake. We saw the shadow of the building in the night, not knowing what it was. When we woke up we saw it and it was abandoned, what luck. At first we thought it was abandoned hotel only to find out later it was a school dating back to 1721. It was built on top of a castle from 1237 after a fire. We were told that a man had brought it and plan's to fix it up, but that was 2 years ago and no one had seen him since. https://youtu.be/IRzalN7ZGd4
  7. Wow, I never expected such a fine respose to my question. Shame there is no perfect setting for everything. First thing I've to do is put the lastist firmware in it and see what we have. Thanks for your help. until next time :-) Anna
  8. I want to start to use my old GoPro again and just wondering what the best settings for all round explore to use, inside and out?. I've a really good light source for dark indoors. Photo is a sample of what my settings were when I used the camera 3 years ago out doors. I cant remember the settings then, my bad. (Yes I can still do the bendy thing) :-)
  9. Hello all. I'm new here and just a little info about myself. I've been exploring for around three years now ( mostly by myself ), in Denmark and northern Germany. There seem to be not many urben explorers here in Denmark, so I feel that I've a responsibility to docement abandoned place's here for the world to see and what they are missing. I've a Youtube channel called Explore 101 Urbex showing my adventures. There you will see that I don't make any money from it with no advertising or asking money from patreon's. You will also see that my subscriber count is very low, fame is a dirty word for me. You will never see my face on screen. I posted all my video's here in one go, (maybe that was too much, sorry), I just wanted to share them with you. I didn't post any comment's about them before because I been of little mind didn't know what I was doing, sorry. Is there a way to edit it in again?, can't seem to find a button to do that. You be hearing from me a bit from time to time, weather it be about a new explore or what ever. Cheers all Anna

    • 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.

      5. Midas, Nevada.
      6. Spring City, Nevada.
      7. Paradise Valley, Nevada.
      8. Buckskin, Nevada.

      10. Delamar, Idaho.
      11. Silver City, Idaho.
      12. Rio Tinto, Nevada.
      13. Pattsville, Nevada.
      14. Aura, Nevada.
      15. Cornucopia, Nevada.
