Two good sources for draining recon are:­­

The Ca Coastline is a very interesting project. Never before has the entire California coast been photographed or inventoried. Its a great source to confirm drain outlets and sea caves.

I also like using a paper version of Thomos Brothers map books. They show stream on the map even though they might be piped. Cross reference that with Google maps and you can find some interesting stuff.

Don't forget Google Earth, an invaluable tool for an serious urban shiggy scout.­

It requires a good graphics card and fast internet connection. It only shows aerial photography, but you can overlay streets, parks, shopping centers and many other things. It also provides more zoom than Google maps, as well as the ability to tilt and rotate the maps. The basic program is free, but if you pay a little you can get Google Earth Plus which allows you to import and overlay tracks from GPS systems as well.

Here's one that I just found from the forums:

Center for Land Use Database

Try a search for "abandoned" or "California" to narrow it down a bit. Very cool resource.

Josh and I started the following Web site (about 75% complete):

San Diego Venturous Urban Explorers

Where cell phone coverage is possible, the site will feature near live images of our current hikes and urban exploration. It will also showcase our past adventures, and who we are as a group.

Check back often!
