The Lost City of Paris Mine Tipple

I had my heart set on locating the abandoned City of Paris/No. 7 mine. No not Paris France, Paris BC. Never hard of it? Neither had I until I moved to Big White, BC for the Summer and was looking for an urbex adventure. Development of the City of Paris Mine began in 1898 andContinue reading “The Lost City of Paris Mine Tipple”

Urbex: Kitchener’s Cold War Bunker

You wouldn’t know it was a cold war fallout bunker, especially when on the front of the building there’s a sign that reads Kitchener-Waterloo Rowing on the front of it.  I’ve lived here all but a few years, and had I not known of its existence from stories, I’d be none the wiser.   All thatContinue reading “Urbex: Kitchener’s Cold War Bunker”

Urbex: The Little Ghost Town of Insinger, Saskatchewan

I was driving to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (say that 10 times fast) to visit some friends.

It was fairlyContinue reading “Urbex: The Little Ghost Town of Insinger, Saskatchewan”

Urbex: The Ongoing Story of the Eccentric Pastor Lee House

It has been a hot minute since I’ve posted … I’ve been embroiled in a landlord/tenant matter, wherein I repossessed my home from crappy tenants and have spent the better part of the last 6 weeks renovating it – they left it in such a shambles (ugh) … I’ll post on that separately, they completelyContinue reading “Urbex: The Ongoing Story of the Eccentric Pastor Lee House”
