insurance for a one-way trip?
so i just realized that it is extremely difficult for me to buy traveler's insurance since have a one-way ticket. chances are, i'll be returning in a 1-1 1/2 months, but it could be up to 3 months. i found out i can't purchase it through travel guard on the phone, so the person told me to try http://www.travelguard.com
> world wide health coverage, which would *only* cover medical stuff..
does anyone know of any other options here? i am worried and thinking i might have to go without and just hope nothing happens.. which i don't expect it to, but you never know!
ps. i am travelling to Mexico, and i'm 23/F Student. :/
sorry about the x-posting!

Just wanted to let those of you who haven't heard of it know about my site. It's called Underground Ozarks, and it's for urban exploration in the Ozarks area (Missour, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas), though most of our members are centered in Springfield, MO. There's a pretty good forum on the site, as well as a new bloghttp://www.undergroundozarks.com

"Just can't wait to get on the road again"
Cross-country route in more detail:( Aaaaand wheeeeee!Collapse )
Okay, the floor is open! Please tear this apart any way you can. Suggest alternate routes (be as specific as you like) and fun places to stop; tell me where I've got us attempting the legally or physically impossible; warn me about major construction zones and the best fair- and foul-weather options. Tell me if Rand McNally's time estimates are off and we're likely to be spending more than ten or eleven hours on the road in a day (and I really don't want to do eleven unless it's necessary). Recommend a hotel or a restaurant. Whatever. Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated, within these parameters: we don't arrive later than the 6th, we don't drive more than ten hours a day, we avoid mountains and likely bad weather spots, and we stop in Atlanta and DC. Everything else is flexible. Have at. *)

Driving across the U.S. in February
I'm moving from San Francisco to New York, and a friend and I will be driving a truck full of my stuff from here to there around the end of January/beginning of February. This is very exciting! *beam* I've wanted to do a cross-country drive for years, and this is my first time. I know that there are some risks to doing this and would like to minimize them, so I ask all of the seasoned travelers out there:
* What route would you choose, and why?
* How long should we expect it to take? How far should we expect to drive each day?
* What's the best way to avoid getting stuck in the snow somewhere?
* Where is there the lowest likelihood of the truck being broken into or stolen? What should I watch out for? (I'm shipping my most sentimental belongings and getting insurance and a truck with GPS and other anti-theft precautions, but of course it's best to avoid this sort of thing altogether.)
* What else should I know, beyond "Bring blankets and lots of music, and do this with someone you won't hate at the end of it"? *)

I don't know why I've never posted here (especially since I'm always in abandoned buildings/whatever). Well...... theres a first time for everything I suppose.
Yesterday while driving through the trailor park that one of my friends had lived in while younger.....we decided to stop at her old home just to take a look around(vacant for 10 YEARS). Not much going on..... besides the fact that it was totally rotting and shifting under our feet. It was interesting..... as old memories just..... floored her. As we were leaving..... I took note of all the other unoccupied trailors. ITS A GOLD MINE!!!!
I took a few snapshots:
Beyond the door.
Expect more soon. Current Mood: amused

Hey, I'm Matt, 18 years old currently living on LI in New York. I see this community has been dead for a little while, and that kinda sucks.
I was just wondering if anyone here has ever toured the abandoned buildings at the Central Islip Facility (Not sure what the name of the place is). I just got back from there literally 15 minutes ago, I checked out one of the engineering buildings. Hopefully soon I'll be making another trip this time armed with a camera instead of just my wits ;)
Anyway, nice to see a community for this :] Current Mood: drained

Hello...I'm a UEer/college student currently living in FL. For one of my current classes, I am required to film a documentary. The topic of my documentary is urban exploration. While I have five sites that I plan to shoot at, the fact that I am a broke college student is keeping me from traveling outside of Florida. I am posting here to see if anyone would be interested in contributing to the documentary. I will send video tapes to *reliable* people, including money to ship the video tapes back to me. I'd love to get footage of your explorations, as well as footage of you talking about how you got into UE, thoughts, best explorations, stories of getting caught, etc. Anyone who contributes will get credit for their part, and I will send a copy of the finished product to all of the participants. I am doing this so I can show UE from many points of view, not just my own stories and explorations. Measures will be taken to protect identities/specific locations.
If this sounds like something you'd be interested in contributing to, please reply here, send me a message on AIM (BeautifulPariah is my screen name), or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Any material you wish to be included can be mailed to me at:

Winter Park, FL 32793-5054
Please remember to include your own name/address (so I can send you the finished product)/e-mail address, and information about your material.
