I’d grown up loving abandoned places and would often go with my sisters to some places around Indiana to explore, but not until I was mid-thirties and back working on aircraft did I discover such a thing as Urbex existed.
I’d started a novel based on elements of my own life and a certain abandoned house in Indianapolis that had captivated me in my youth. For whatever reason the events that led to my visiting this house and discovering Urban Exploration as a genre came about at the same time.
The Proper People and this video in particular started it all. Many mornings I’d come home from work soaked in jet fuel and watch these videos until sleep found me. Enjoy!
