Ever struggled to find people to explore with, or places to go? Wondered whatever happened to the exploring scene? Fed up with UER? We’re starting a league of unremarkable explorers right here in Upstate NY!


Starting in the spring of 2016, we will have five groups to join and see everything you want to explore. No experience necessary – all you need is a sense of adventure, a flashlight, and a few weekends to travel around to other upstate cities.

We will have three types of meetups this summer, to cover a wide range of interests and experience levels.
Regular meet: Open to everyone; one group hosts another for a day of exploring accessible, interesting locations. Entrances are relatively easy (no high climbing, fences, or active security guards will be involved). Each crew will have 8 of these over the summer, 4 home and 4 away.
All-star meet: A more in-depth look at one city, with places that may involve a higher level of risk, for your local group. These locations may be fenced off or secured. Be prepared for more athletic exploring, and the possibility of failure.
North Country:Our thirteenth sesqui-annual trip to the abandoned industrial wasteland north of the Adirondacks. Spend a weekend camping on a beautiful northern lake and exploring enormous ruins of paper mills, mines and company towns.
