I'm from Altoona and so far, I haven't been hearing of any abandoned and/or haunted places around here and I was wondering that, if there's anyone close to living around Altoona, if they could give me good locations to go to.(The chances of me actually going...well...it all depends if I have a ride and if I have someone to go with)

So, if anyone could help me out here, it would be very appreciated.

Been to Centralia? 

I used to live in Ohio, most of the property in midwest/eastern states is privately owned so you're options for exploring can be very limited.   I'd suggest looking at rail lines on google maps, see if you can find abandonded rails/tunnels.. sometimes you can find buildings or even entire trains sitting on the tracks ignored.

Good luck!

And not abandoned, but if you haven't been to Boulder Field... make a day or two of Centralia and Boulder Field.. 😉

No I haven't, but I want to!

Thanks for the suggestions and such, and no I haven;t been to Boulder Field either. Hopefully, I'll be able to go to both or one of them sooner or later. It's just slightly hard for me cause I don't have a ride or anyone to go with. BUT If I do, I'll make sure to either update here or post the link to the vid(s) once I get them edited and posted.

UPDATE

I think I'll be able to go to Centralia in spring or early summer thanks to my one(and pretty much only) friend. He's interested going after I text him in summary what it was. I'll probably going to have to tell him more about it but hey, at least I have a friend to go with now. I don't like going to places by myself- not cause I'ms cared but because I have no one to share the moments with.

      I'm actually quite new to most of all of this. I haven't really gotten to explore much but I do want to. Especially the haunted abandoned places. I've been inspired to do the whole exploring because of some youtubers. Speaking of youtube, I have a channel!

      The videos I have is just mainly paranormal type things all done in my home since I don't know if there is any noteworthy abandoned places around where I live. 
      But yeah, even if I cant do exploring, I like talking to other people about it.

      Some old film scans of various rotting places in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Maybe some of you will appreciate to see these.

      Hello, I'm a YouTube content creator and new to urban exploration.  I do daily Vlog type videos, but I have been trying to also get out and do exploration videos.  I really like the exploration videos a lot.  They are definitely some of the more interesting things I film, and I love finding something new to me, and lost to the world.  Here are links to a few of my Exploration videos.  Please let me know what you think.  I have plans with a friend to explore more locations starting in January.  I hope to find new locations and learn tips and tricks to help grown and learn new skills,
      This is my newest video -

    • 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, 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.
