  1. This was a pretty elaborate mine site we explored, tons of cool stuff was found. Its near "Simon" NV if you are curious. Not the easiest to get to in my opinion.

  3. https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/05/court-ruling-would-nullify-us-requirement-that-hobbyists-register-drones/ Federal appeals court struck down regulation requiring drone registration. Appeals court found they did not have the authority to regulate model aircraft. The decision is on hold for 7 days pending further appeals. When they first decided to do this, I saw it as a simple power grab. They justify it with all sort of FUD as is typical, and the media raises the alarm about all the havoc supposedly caused by drones flying in restricted space, etc.. Fact is that nothing in this registration does anything useful, people can still buy drones and fly unregistered... and the likelihood of getting in trouble for it is negligible. IMO it's just another example of penalizing honest people so they can pretend to do something about a perceived problem that may have been overblown... and of course increase bureaucratic budget and power.
  4. Hey everyone, so this is my first explore post, I'm probably going to be slow sharing since I'm planning on waiting until my YouTube videos come out. but I just wanted to give an update on Olinghouse Nevada. I was out there about a month ago with my friend. As some of you may know there is many rumors about the Olinghouse area being guarded by an "old man with a gun chasing people of the property". Well I took a few trips out there because I really wanted to get some cool footage. I didn't go into all of the structures because it seemed like the floors weren't sturdy enough to hold my weight. My friend went in them but she only weighs about 115 lbs. The mine has been purchased and is currently active. We went on a Sunday after the first ground freeze because that's usually when mining operations stop for the winter. There was still a lot of activity of a small ATV vehicle going back and forth to the miners headquarters building, so we tried to stay hidden as possible. I looked at the Olinghouse Facebook page just a few days ago and it said people tried to get permission to go out there but were denied, so I'm glad I got what I did without being seen. The place is still in really good shape. Its hard to tell the age of some of the buildings, most of them have probably been frankensteined over the years since its been a home to squatters, meth-labbers, and the occasional mine enthusiast. If you plan on exploring the area, I suggest at least with 4 wheel drive and drive past the headqaurters building and do a little 4wheeling to the back ranch house and you can stay hidden easier from back there. There is also a road that seems to lead to some interesting thing that I can see from the Sat pics, but I will definitely need an ATV to get there. anyways. Here is the video if you'd like to check it out. See you out there! Backwoods Beast
  5. Anyone here use a Drone for scouting out areas? @Jack Freer I know you mentioned you had a drone, but I am not sure how good a drone would be to scout out a mountainous area? Would a DJI Phantom 3 be useful as a way to get a good view of the area from the sky while you are out in the field? I am thinking about getting the Phantom 3 standard with the 2.7K Camera to add some aerial shots to my videos and for scouting out areas. Any suggestions? So many times I wonder what is just over the next hill or just around the corner. I am wondering how much easier it would be to see it all from the sky, maybe 200 or 300 feet in the air?
