Further, any information you get from this site (or any site on the internet for

'No trespassing' signs, Don't put yourself in a dangerous situation. Ghost towns,
abandonded buildings, caves, mines, etc are known for dangerous settings (hence
why we like them). A lot of stuff can go wrong. Be prepared. Always bring a cell
phone, even a cell phone with no service is good to have since it can always dial
911 even if the phone has been de-activated. Also as a secondary precaution, Don't
go alone. Always have at least 1 person with you, and be in constant contact using
Keep in mind that dangers exist everywhere, scorpions, rattle snakes, black widows,
falling debris, unstable structures, the 'killer bee ghost', etc... And depending
where you travel to and how stupid you act, the owner of the land your going on.
Be considerate, don't grafiti, dont make a mess, dont screw with peoplem leave the
place as you found it!!! Alot of these places are inhabited still or atleast owned
by someone, give them the respect they deserve... More and more places are prosecuting
ghost hunters, because of some 'bad apples' that trash places they goto. If you
respect the land and property, you will help make sure that other people can go
there in the future.

you plan to do, when you will do it, how long you will take, etc. Here is a good
standard permission and release of liability form to use:
