I'm thinking Chernobyl would be the ultimate place to explore...

What are some other ultimate locations around the globe?

Varosha, a large section of a city in Cyprus that was abandoned after the Turkish army invaded in 1974 and forced all the residents out. Unfortunately, trespassers are supposedly shot on sight by Turkish forces.

Odessa Catacombs!

This place is a nightmare! Which is over 1,500miles of passages which have never been fully mapped (compared to Paris catacombs which are 150miles of passage). Existing on 3 separate levels, that reaches the depths of 60meters below sea level, Odessa is one of the most dangerous catacombs in the world with many losing their lives every year inside. Created by mining limestone originally then used local smugglers, this death camber has over 1,000 documented openings and is brutally beautiful & unforgiving.

I guess you could say my sights are set a little low, but honestly just the 8th st tunnel. It's my big goal

The Paris catacombs scared me enough, but now I learn that there’s Odessa catacombs, and they’re ten times as big? Fuck that, man. That’s nightmare fuel.

My ultimate goal is probably one of those abandoned middle silos from the Cold War.

Also, the abandoned Packard Auto Plant in Detroit probably ranks near the top of places in the US...

The only fun part of living in Detroit would be all of the urban decay. At least if it would be if you weren’t living in the middle of it, I guess.

Unfortunately Packard has pretty much been a shell for the last 15 years. Nothing really much to see there anymore, It's really starting to fall apart.

There are a few places that I wish I had gotten to see, and ones that I still will eventually see.

One of the coolest places I used to go was NATCO or Northwest Airlines HQ (Now Delta). First time getting in seemed a little too surreal at times. All types of simulators. DC9s, 737s, 747s, I think at least 14 different ones from all vintages. I've been told the price tags new were upwards of $60M a piece. All so we could be the first people to smoke pot inside them.

Another place that is gone now, but still has an epic history is Pyestock NGTE in the UK. If you have some spare time take a gander through this site or google yourself: http://www.ngte.co.uk/

I still think Bannister Federal Complex is pretty cool too, but I was shy of its prime by a couple years.

Of course everybody knows what my favorite spot is, so no sense in ruining it for anyone =P
