Every once in a while I decide that a night time explore is a good idea. I think time and time again I am reminded why I prefer the daylight over night time. The best part of doing any urbex at night comes down to the simple fact you can hide a lot easier. You are less visible and you can use the dark as a big advantage. Biggest downfall would be how dangerous it can be if you can't see where you are going or how unstable the place is. Tonight we decided to explore 2 locations. The first one ended up getting dark on us faster than I was expecting. When that happened florida's wild life ended up attacking us...meaning all the bugs that could get on us did. The explore was fun but it being pitch black outside made it really hard to see as there were zero lights to see where we were going aside from our own. Luckily we had some GPS and where able to find our selves out of the location after a while of exploring. 2nd location was a hotel, in hotels you run a larger risk running into someone. The person can be friendly or not, but when they scream at you and run after you we just assume they don't want us there. During this explore we decided to push onto one of the doors leading into one of the rooms, to our surprise a man screamed "hey!" then got up to the door and went after us. Running on a 2nd story building, with rubble and unstable ground adds to the mess this could of been. Running with all the light we had off to avoid being seen made sure both of us were very aware of what we were stepping on. We were able to get away just fine but we did end up scaring the homeless man and it was a knee jerk reaction for him to come after us. With that being said, try to be careful in a lot of these places that tend to be close to main roads. It makes it beyond easy for people to make a home in there and get extremely protective over their territory. At least nothing happened, just adds another scare to the list of scares on my explores.
Happy urbexing you guys
