Anyone have experience with Urban Exploration in KCMO? I can't seem to find many abandoned places that haven't already been demolished.

The castle is a classic spot...the workhouse on Google maps...also check out the huge semi abandoned area around the blue river as it passes under independence ave. And onward.its like a mini l.a. river...theres tons of amazing places to explore in k.c.

The Castle seems kinda overplayed tbh, a lot of people go out there for photo ops and shit. I'll have to check the Blue River spot though.

Undergroundozarks.com was a good resource about ten years ago. People still postoccasionally, last I looked. Might want to make an account there.

Will be cruising through there not to far into the future, know some cats in the game over there. Could organize a small meetup if you pass the not a scrapper not a creep test.

Also, want to really shine the weathered explorer crowd on?

Go out and pop lids to drains, climb shit you've never heard of anyone climbing, hell, spend an hour dragging around Google maps and crack a location no one's been in yet.

Nothing feels better than cracking your first big location. And you get to be the person showing other explorers around. Will get you into whatever community that might be around much faster than asking for locations.

The KC urbex community is alive and well- and quite possibly one of the biggest in the midwest outside of MSP and Chicago. I met with some people from the community and they were all amazing people.


The current online gathering space for urbex in Kansas City is kcurbex.org. I'd recommend checking it out and getting to know the people there.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$15.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $15.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $15.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Three years of loving and caring, down the backed up toilet.
I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
