Google can be your friend , found an old fort one day /out/ , got home googled it and found out they built ten of them during the Napoleonic wars to defend an estuary against invasion , explored all of them , this then led me to other bunkers that were built in ww2. It was cool camping in them (the ones that were structurally sound looking ) But you would be surprised what you find on Google when you put in a certain area , like board posts by other people who found stuff . One of my favourite spots now I found that way , it's an island with a fort and the ruins of a castle , the guy that lives there owns the island and has a farm on it. First day I arrived on their he came out with a pack of dogs and a shotgun. Got talking to him , completely chill guy , just has lots of problems with assholes coming onto his land. Gave me permission to camp / fish whatever on his island whenever I want as long as I don't leave shit behind me. Found a tunnel on that island when the tide was out one day , brought some other sc/out/s with me and did some exploring. Led to a sub level of the fort , found old barrels , pipes , bowls etc , was pretty cool.
Looking for a new area now tho further away , a dude here is after writing a book about abandoned structures , can't wait to get going to these places
>>668553 Figure out what you wan to do, long hikes, camping, bushcraft, whatever. Then research the topic a bit, maybe watch someone with more experience from youtube or even read about it here. After that just go outside and do whatever it is you want to do, start with activities that won't take more than a day so there's no risk.
There's an app called Yonder which is basically Yelp for outdoor stuff. I've used it a few times, but usually I just look for the nearest park/forest/wilderness area/etc and go explore. That's part of the fun of being /out/
>>668688 I found this amazing place in South Dakota by looking at a book of abandoned places. It's called Harney Peak and the trail to it starts in the beautiful Custer State Park and ends at an abandoned National Forest fire tower.
>>668820 The western part of the state is hilly/mountainous and can be kinda touristy thanks to Mount Rushmore, but the Black Hills really are an amazing place. There's a ton of National Forest and National/State park land to do a wide variety of stuff. I've gone hiking, climbing, caving, camping, and fishing out there. It's pretty awesome. Central part of the state is pretty flat, not counting the Badlands, which will take your breath away.
There's assloads to do and explore. I didn't take this one, but here's a photo of a place in Spearfish Canyon called the Devil's Bathtub. You can hike out there and enjoy a nice cool dip on a summers day. The way the water runs through the canyon makes it a natural water slide.
>>669212 There are definitely 4 seasons and it can get pretty cold up there. I was working at Devils Tower and got to see spring, summer, and autumn. Was definitely worth it. Summers rarely get above 100 and generally hover in the 80's. I got to see lightning streak across behind the tower a few times and we had quite a number of storms (one while we were trying to rappel down the tower).
Also, star gazing out there is fantastic. There is very little light pollution unless you're near Rapid City.
>>665973 If you're in the US try the closest US Forest Service, BLM, or Nat'l Park Service office. The State dept or Natural Resources(or whatever they call it in your state is another possibility. Also US Fish and Wildlife has some cool refuges.
