So I explored an abandoned missile silo on my week trip to Denver. Which one of you faggots did this? I can dump the rest if you like.
To keep this weapons related, which weapon would you prefer for STALKER-esque room clearing? I almost brought my PPS-43C in 9mm.
And if I knew it to be unlikely to run into shit, I'd take my Walther P99. Always a good idea to have the gun you're most familiar with in 2spooky situations where panic's a possibility.
Not OP but its one of the silos east of denver. There are a couple titan complexes (real fucking spooky). IIRC a couple got destroyed via start and a couple more are in private hands. One of which the owner doesnt know what the fuck to do with so its full of this kind of shit. I really wish he would just give me the complex so I can start fixing it up
>flooded lower levels
No thank you.
Dont know what it is, but I especially dont like water inside of places it shouldnt be. Like when the streets of NY were flooded after Hurricane/Tropical Storm Sandy or whatever the fuck it was, I got to thinking about all the submerged subway tunnels and that shit really just rustles my jimmies. Or flooded mines.
Did you bring any weapons with you when you went? I know a lot of UE don't because it can get you in a lot of trouble if you get caught, but I wouldn't really feel safe without something
>OP found a Vault
That is cool and spoopy as hell.
No, I almost brought my PPS-43C but I heard Johnny Law gets called a lot on urbexers so I decided against it. With how many bullet casings were down there I should've taken it anyway. I also underestimated how spooky it would be down there, but would definitely go again.
I know I would. I'd be willing to bet theres a very real possibility of encountering some less than savory individuals who may be very unhappy about being encountered
And perhaps not in a missle silo as much, but I wouldnt want to run in to some feral dog in a place like this either
I actually met a group of 3 as I was leaving. I would've shit my pants to hear them down there with me. It was totally silent. Very eerie. I spent almost 3 hours down there exploring.
I'd fucking love to get into urbex but
1. This sounds like one of those activities where a battle-buddy is pretty much necessary for safety reasons and I hate doing shit like that with other people
2. It's completely region-dependent. It seems like unless you live near an abandoned missile silo or rust-belt factories your're pretty SOL.
Yeah, sadly no friends or coworkers of mine like urbexing either. If you like it, you'll still do it though.
They were metal plates ripped from other parts of the silo.
>Super 2spooky5me pic near the end though.
You may not be able to "urbex" but youd be surprised the amount of abandoned lumber mills, ghost towns, abandoned mining complexes and stuff that litter the US/rest of the world that are in places that arent in built up areas where you cant get your 2spoopy5me fill
fuck man imagine
walking down this
when a flashlight beam appears down that tunnel
The image doesn't show how big these silos are, because I take shitty pics.
these things emit intermittent beeps
that shit in an abandoned (insert complex or building of choice here) would be plenty unnerving
spelunked into a Nike site in Cromwell CT a couple years back, was in fairly good shape but flooded, had to rope down about 100 feet into about a foot of water
spoopy ghost dots. God i wish there was some shit like this around me. There used to be this big ass sanitarium not to far from me but the fuckers tore it down, now its just a big open field
You don't happen to live in Topeka, do you? I almost stopped there, too.
A good idea when you take pictures of things/places that are hard to gauge the size of is to place a soda/beer can somewhere in the shot near a place that will help you get things in perspective.
Nah sorry, Ohiobro here. I'd invite you over if i did though really want to do some urbex with someone who would actually be down
Some other guy got inside the place here's the link if your interested
I really wanna go to Boston, Ohio (AKA helltown, USA) an entire abandoned town. We should have the next /k/ meet-up there.
>Fucking Kilroy always beating me everywhere.
>Fuck you, Kilroy.
>tfw no Titan base for hom
>tfw no comm bunker
>tfw no NIKE site
So many of 'em, and all I want is one.
This was climbing out the blast hatch. Not then end though. Took a short breather, got some fresh air.
no bullshit I live like 10 mins from there, and have been to hell town a bunch of times. Its probably just the stigma but that place has a 2spooky4me vibe about it. I wish i had some picture to share. Some of the houses are way back in the woods and the old water main just kinda leaks down the hill and the wind blows through and you can hear them creaking in the woods. Its really something else, I'd totally be down for a meet up there just throw up a thread or something about it
God damnit /k/. I wanna do some urbrexing, but so far I've been unlucky in my attempts at finding an applicable site to explore.
The only thing I've found so far was some abandoned town when I was on a road trip going up to Northern California.
How do you guys hunt for these places? Any kind of forum or site I can be directed towards to in order to find Abandoned shit in southern failifornia?
I'd love to do that kind of stuff but with my various government licenses I can't risk it. Trespassing on federal property just isn't in my cards. When I was a kid I always got caught by *the* dickhead officer that would handcuff me and all that shit for pranks and trespassing rather than scare me off like what always happened to my friends. That luck would probably continue.
And it definitely seems like a bad idea to carry a firearm while doing all this
Shit, alot of these last pictures look like Black Mesa from Half Life. Imagine the robot girl sounding voice from that game playing rigged up to the device from >>23885831 saying
"DANGER... DANGER... CONTAINMENT MEASURES FAILING, CONTAINMENT M-M-M-MEASU-MEAS- DANGE-CONTAINM-" , followed by a creepy far off shriek and rapid footsteps.
In front of the silo, that is half flooded with water. If I wanted to get rid of a body. It would be here. Just saying.
Would love to come, but I am eurofag, so I just head to Priyat next summer.
Not wanting detrail thread as Op is cool guy.
But you guys should check "English Russian" site. Full of great picture threads about everything in russian. Search "Abandoned" and you got your handsfull of threads about missile sites, military bases..and pic related..stalker.
>two little spots in reflective white paint at the end of a VERY long corridor
>makes for two little eyes
>place passive sound device halfway through
I have no idea what sound would work best because I would just shit myself whatever it was.
Bro, you know what kinda cool? All the equipment in those elevators are the same ones they still use at my work. Even the manlifts, its a working history musuem. Riding a manlift up 10 stories the first time is a sphincter tightneing expirence. If you are from the buffalo area, there a few nike missile bases around that are neat to check out.
Of course, how did you know.
And fellow Stalkers inside.
It seems like they are going to spend night there.
Did it's eyes just move?
Used to urbex back in high school when I was 16-17.
Live in Calgary, AB, so there was barely any nearby spots apart from a fuck huge brewery I must have explored ten times. I know that place by heart. I had probably around 100 pictures I took for a school project of that place. Lost with time now, though.
It can be lots of fun with friends. 2spooky2goalone though.
Alright, last one for real this time.
>Hope ya'll enjoyed the thread. (Again)
Who /stalker/ here?
Anyone up in New England want to meet up for vodka, urbex, and guns?
Also, why is the winter nuggetfest being held in PA, but isn't in Centralia?
if you're still taking sound suggestions I suggest the idle noises nosalises make (Metro 2033 and last light enemy) and find a way to park the speaker down an air vent a ways so that it echoes through the whole complex.
There are some good stalking locations in colorado
>be cheeki breeking thru a small river valley with a friend
>out of nowhere
>massive 1/2 destroyed dam made from individual 3'x3'x3' stone cubes
>stick head in only visible access which was a tunnel big enough to crawl on all 4's
>not worried because im in a level 4 vest and have a 600 lumen flash light
>get about 100ft in
>hear a long moaning sound
>hear dirt moving
>start backing out as quick as possible
We noped out of the valley because the sun was setting and it was snow on the ground, i was not too keen on spending a night in the spooky fucking dam. Especially since I only had about 5 hours worth of batteries
make it a phone ringing, like an old school phone, but make it only ring 1 time and not reset for like a few weeks
so you're just exploring this abandoned missile shelter and you here 1 ring from a phone, then you freeze, then look at your buddy and ask if he heard that and he says i think so, then you have to wonder if you just actually heard a phone ring or not, which makes you wonder if someone else is down there, and on and on....
>mfw I grew up less than 30 miles away in Leavenworth and never knew it existed.
Leavenworth also has a NIKE site that I got chased out of once when I was like 16. There's all kinds of sweet shit around LV.
Posting some of my pics
if you're still here OP we should do the Metro challenge down here
Also, the newest version of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. innawoods challenge set is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1284nyxfctWXhRAFPESuzFZLdJFbU7XtIwV6gc0ysOfY/edit
If some anon wanted to concatenate it into a nice infographic, I'd love you forever.
Someone needs to start leaving "artifacts" around popular urbex sites. I bet you could do wonders with a 3d printer, some hot glue or clear epoxy, and a few tritium tubes.
Fuck, that'd make for an awesome S.T.A.L.K.E.R. scavenger hunt. Set it up for your /k/omrades, or just leave it there. Just imagine some normie coming across pic related or something similarly trippy and bizarre.
>all these people thinking that titans are spooky
Let me introduce you to :
Aerodrom Zeljava, also known as "Klek".
>Yugoslavian underground airbase
>Cost 6 billion in 1968 money to make
>designed to survive a direct hit from a nuke
>one of the largest in europe
>Radar and Command network for all of yougoslavia
>Held two full fighter squadrons underground
>3.5km of tunnels
>100tn blast doors
>designed to house 1000 people
>used by JNA during civil war
>JNA were falling back under nato pressure
>set off 56 tons of HE to blow up base
>front doors and upper levels are destroyed
>lower levels are yet unexplored because (according to local assets in area) nobody has climbing gear and some people think lower level is home to ghosts/chemical weapons
So /k/ are you hard enough to fly to croatia and explore it? Local assets report no security around base
Oh did I mention
>UXO ranging from plane bombs to artillery shells all over the top of it and in surrounding fields
>surrounded by a massive mine field (using cutting age 90's yugo mines that contain no metal)
Field trip when?
Tritium is slightly radioactive, and glows for a decade or two. If anyone actually checked it out up-close with a geiger counter, they'd pick up a little bit of radiation. A good, high-res 3d printer could do all kinds of trippy alien shapes. You glue the tubes to the inside where they can't be seen, then fill it in with epoxy. You now have a hard-to-destroy/disassemble item, bizarrely alien, glowing, slightly radioactive, with transparent sections.
Fuck, I wonder if you could even get something that's radioactive enough to pick it up with a geiger counter from 20 feet or so away? That'd be amazing for an artifact hunt. Or put a little radio tracker inside, the ones that beep every minute or so, and last for years, so you can find it with a detector.
I need to do this, /k/. I need to.
I need to get some SCBA for exploring the tunnels underneath an abandoned airbase near here that was turned into a town airport. Problem is, all the entrances I know of are in fairly public areas.
I would wear a respirator but I wouldnt go full SCBA. The most you would find down there are some mig21's, supplies to arm 1000 yugoslavians and rotten food.
The JNA was in a quick retreat when they fell back so its possible that some stuff got left there that was not meant to be left
I would seriously do it if I had the money. But I'm creaming my pants at the potential right now. I should go post it on the general in /vg/.
If I were to do a kickstarter so I can get the funds to buy the tritium and a small 3d printer + plastic, would anyone actually donate? I'd send artifacts as backer rewards.
I can't stop thinking about amazing ways you could do this. What if you had a little sensor inside to detect movement, and it would make some sort of sound when you flipped it the right way? You could make little puzzlebox-type things with these.
Tritium itself does not glow and is rather expensive. The beta particles it emits cause phosphorus to glow. Any beta emitter will cause phosphorus to glow but tritium is used because its rather "Safe" as far as nuclear goes. H3 is one of the most expensive elements in the world because it is one of the lightest.
Its a beta emitter and a safe one at that (to glow it must be sealed in a tube). Unless you eat the gas you wont get sick or even die. It cannot penetrate the dead layers of skin on your body.
Not my video, no idea
Of course it would make sense to bring an O2 meter with and some bottled O2 just in case but I wouldnt worry about it
Thank god that site has no history. Also its in private hands
Is this the one outside of Deertrail or some other silo?
rocket fuel can be some seriously poisonous shit depending on what it is, tear gas can corrode and leak, hydraulic fluid, especially the kind used in aviation can be extremely poisonious and corrosive, furher all this shit mixing with water and other random chems can make a deadly stew that could kill you without directly inhaling it
My bad. I was just thinking of the vials that you can order online. The tubes have lifetimes of years though, so it'd last for a while.
