    What a tease!!! I seriously can't wait. But dont you think you should lie about the actual locations? I mean, don't you think it would blow shit up?

    Because it's possible individuals/preservation societies might want to contribute. Who knows.

    Right now, no... but come time to publish that could drastically change.

    I love it and I’m so psyched. The only thing is your giving out the real names. Aren’t you afraid a vandal or loser is going to get a hold of the book? If not I really don’t care, just saying.

    After talking to my peeps about urban exploring and whether they'd do it or not...the majority of my family and friends would NOT do it, they would rather look and not touch. They'd rather wait for someone else to take photos from the inside.

    And, what about all the other urban exploring books and magazines? Not all millions of buyers of those books have gone to the named locations, I think that would be a problem! I think that most of the world is like my family...they don't want to take the risks, so they look for other ways of getting inside, like photography. Ya know, so let's not worry too much.

    My 2008 resolution was to get a good start on the UA book which I think its safe to say that I have done. My 2009 resolution will be to finish the book!

    Your layout design are you using Adobe InDesign to create each page?
    Chuck - This is the worse day of my life.
    Tyler - It could be worse. A woman could cut off your penis while you're sleeping and toss it out the window of a moving car.
    Chuck - There's always that.

    So I am starting to get a better feel for how many pages this book is gonna be. Should be about 162 pages of glorious photos and text. As far as pages completed I am to page 106.
