My condolences. I am sorry to hear that.
s0cialanxiety said: Thanks so much! What bridges would you recommend me searching out? Well than how about just some buildings pretty close to the Des Moines area that not too many people know about? Because I wouldn't want to run into any people. I'll be wary of police haha..(:
I use the website Bridgehunter.com to find abandoned bridges. Its an awesome resource and has each state broken up by county. I highly recommend it.
s0cialanxiety said: You live in Iowa? I've been wanting to go look around the abandoned buildings! Do you know any places in Des Moines that are easily accessible? :D
Easily accesible? Well, most places in the Des Moines area have been sealed up pretty tight (see wallace elementary) however, bridges are usually always on public county/city roads and can legally be accessed. Theres one big place that Ive always wanted to explore, but the population of homeless plus police presence keep me from doing so.
