Urban exploration has got me spooked lately. I used to do it a lot. I came up on an abandoned cold war era military base (a decent sized one). It had multiple barracks, a movie theatre, and many many other structures. I went back in there a few times, both in the night and day, just to explore. The last time though, there were fresh trenches dug everywhere extending out from many of the buildings, and there were fresh tire tracks in the tall grass. While on foot, approaching a building, I thought I heard footsteps in the grass. I motioned to my friend to stop and listen. I then heard a loud metallic click about 50 yards off in a patch of trees/ foliage. In my mind it sounded like a gun being charged into battery. I took off about as fast I have ever moved in my life and literally dove back into my topless jeep. My friend, however, didnt take off like me. He just froze there, and didnt know I was gone until he heard the jeep start 50 yards away (probably <10 seconds after I took off, lol).
I dont know if scrappers were digging for copper power lines, or if someone was running some kind of illegal operation out there. In any event, I have never gone back, nor have I done any more exploration of abandoned properties.
