nope... lol how do you get under a storm drain?! interesting.
if you can bench 200 pounds, thats nothing.
if you can lift your own body weight,
well now, you can get yourself over a wall.

Well there's this creek in my neighborhood and at one end of it is about a 3 foot in diameter pipe and once you get into that it just kinda branches out into the different storm drains.  You should definitely try it.  Its awesome.

Seriously, this is something that I want to try, but will probably bow out of as there's too many trespassing laws that can get violated by doing stuff like this. 

On top of that, there's absolutely no chance of you recovering any kind of money from the owners of the property in the event you hurt yourselves. 

Be safe, stay prepared, go out there in groups if you can, and exercise all the care in the world.

....Sweet Mother of Belle there's so many places I wanna try this at.

again, like parkour you are not suppose to destroy your environment. because everyone here does parkour i don't think i need to mention this.

I went generally exploring downtown yesterday. After I hyper extended my back attempting my first double kong vault.
So my back is supposed to be like this: (
It kinda went like this: >
My feet hooked on  the rail in a NOOOOOOOB! moment. Then my hands grabbed the center rail in front of me and I hyperextended my back and then my knees slammed on the ground. So after a bit of grunting and heavy breathing whilst sitting on a nearby rock, I got up and was like: Now imma explore mah citah!
I can walk fine without pain, so there's no disk damage. It just hurts (dull pain) when I take any impact like a jump. And it's not directly the spine that hurts, just the muscles around it.
Fecteau, you are the first person I will turn to when I break up with Micah, haha

I've always considered urban exploring a sort of subsidiary to parkour. Like it just came with the territory. But that's one big thing that a lot of people when they're exploring don't get. You're not in there to loot or pillage the place you're exploring, you're there just to see it and just look around. Take some photo's and see stuff most people don't take the time to go look at.

Of course, you always run risks of breaking trespassing laws and then maybe some of you guys (depending where you live) might find meth-heads just chilling around shooting up some heroin. So take care where you tread. I'm not saying to not explore where you want (I know I for sure go wherever the hell I want.) but just to check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Aren't we all running?

I've done this a couple of time but didn't really pay attention to it.  There is an old abandoned high school a couple of miles away from my house that i would like to explore but i want to get one of my friends to go with me.

I disagree. If one were to reference Adam Dutkiewicz's sideburns in a appropriate manner THAT would be epic

I'm...
..Not into that type of music.

Classical and techno and 80's rock and country are awesome, but, I just can't stand the "BRALLLAWWHHASHGKLIJSHGDAJGLKIJOGYIGYAAAAAAAAAHHHHH" screaming.

Also, life is like candy, you can only eat it without the rapper. :P

if there is no opening, then there is no way that i can recommend that would be something a mature adult would recommend.

crowbar? i have no suggestions.
