I never went to Mexico friend .. the abandoned mine that I visit is called La Mexicana .. but it is in Argentina .. someday I have thought to go to Mexico to climb the Peak of Orizaba ..

Ah, I see.  It's the same situation as Bottle Creek I guess.

I took a few more minutes to look at the pictures, above.  The blue stalactites are COOL!!!  I'm guessing they are some sort of copper carbonate?  Either way, they're really neat looking,

I agree with Ed.  They remind me of a "rainbow cave".  However I'm no hardcore geologist nowadays.  I was in the mid to late '90s.  However, I lost interest in geology by 5th grade (02).

if that I think friend, a kind of carbonate .. there was a lot of sulfur in the mine .. and metals such as gold, silver, pyrite, copper .. we arrived 3 km inside .. the depth of the mine is not known precisely .. estimated at about 25 km ..

On our youtube channel we like to document our road trips, which sometimes includes exploring abandoned places.  We're always fascinated with finding out the history of any place we visit, abandoned or not, far from home (southern California) or not.  We also enjoy going wine tasting too!

Hey, everybody! Just subbed to everyone here (everyone I was not already subbed to, anyway). Sin, in particular I was glad to be the 2nd subscriber to your brand-new channel! I remain Random Coyote at this channel:

I know I have been posting very little of late; it has been an unusually busy Fall season for me. I do have plans for more and a lot of Idaho in the south and central area will be explored. I have a list of at least a dozen or more interesting areas to document, but with winter settling in some of it will have to wait.

I've watched a number of your videos.  The one that sticks out is when you found that camping gear (with the K-Bar knife), and then the climbing gear inside the mine portal.  That was creepy for any number of reasons.  Very good stuff.  Of course I *do* go deep into mines, but that's just my preference. :)

Yeah, I took a lot of crap for that video. Me checking for ID or God forbid a dead body, turned into me "stealing" and "trashing". Like I need Walmart camping gear or a surplus store knife.

I took issue with a few people for going into those mines, mainly because of people that might try it without being prepared and equipped. Which I assume you are. As you probably know, the BLM in Nevada try very hard to keep people out of the thousands of abandoned mines in that state, fencing them off with signs.

Hey - if you want to cross-promote channels, I will add you to my "Cool Stuff I Like" sidebar if you'll do the same!

Eh, screw 'em if they don't like it.  Out in BFE, you come across something abandoned, the logical thing is to investigate.  It could have been an old smuggler camp for all you know.  The knife was a K-Bar, right?  Those are decent tools.  Surprising that the rest of the gear was all craptastic junk. 

I go into mines as prepared as I possibly can be.  I always have an ambient oxygen meter, multiple sources of light + extra batteries, helmet, gloves, basic trauma kit and the like.  If there's cause for it, proper climbing gear comes in, too.  Some other folks use lines that are more of a canyoneering or sport climbing type, but I only use NFPA-rated life lines (part of the reason is my SAR background).  When I rig systems, I rig them with a 10:1 safety factor and capable of handling a rescue load (400kg).  If shit goes sideways, I can self-rescue or rescue an exploring partner w/out having to re-rig, find new anchors, etc.  I know some disagree with entering old mines, and I understand why.  Some of my SAR buddies think I'm crazy, but would have zero problem on a highline 3000 feet above Yosemite Valley.  :-)

Sure, cross-promoting is good.  I'll add you when I'm done installing flooring this afternoon!

Hello gang, PANICd.com has been around since 2010.   It is a database that documents locations around the United States with Paranormal Activity.   Back in 2010, we also created the YouTube channel, http://www.youtube.com/panicdvideos however, we really never did anything with the video channel until just recently.   Over the years, my wife and I have been blessed with the ability to travel the country and visit ~180 of the locations within our database, so we decided to start creating a series of videos called "Our Haunted Travels".   We have been looking for others who like to travel, explore, investigate, document historical finds, etc.   Check us out, give us a sub if interested.  Thank You.

It's a module you add, you can call it whatever you want. I can't even remember how I did it.

EDITED TO ADD: you have go into Channel Settings and turn on "Customize the layout of your channel"

Now you should have a box called Featured Channels. You can add links to other channels, change the name of it to whatever you want, etc.

Found it and added!  Thanks.  The YT interface is so crappy.  Actually, most interfaces these days are crap.

This is all I did (from the above instructions):

 

 

[Y]ou have go into Channel Settings and turn on "Customize the layout of your channel"

Now you should have a box called Featured Channels. You can add links to other channels, change the name of it to whatever you want, etc.

 

NB: That box should appear on the right side of your channel window when looking at your channel as *you* (the owner).

Agreed. I liked that one, too. Someone doesn't just leave gear like that. Something.... something's up.

I would have saved the K-Bar from certain death, but that's about it.  50% of surviving is a good knife.  The other 50% is not being an asshat! :D

    • This is the location of the famous Mojave Phone Booth. Unfortunately not much is left today, but it's still a cool location to visit with an interesting history.

    • South Pass City WY
      South Pass City, approximately 90 miles north of Rock Springs, is a historic site administered by the state of Wyoming.  It consists of over 30 log, frame, and stone buildings, along with the Carissa Mine and Stamp Mill.

    • 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.
