Amazing that there is still activity here after so many years! For those still wishing to get involved the best advice is to just start driving around town. Go with a friend for safety of course, but you'll find more than you think if you just start looking. Checking out the Southeast forum on UER is also your best bet to get involved with the community. Just remember that directly asking will usually not result in much of a response--you have to be prepared to show a bit of your own interest and photos, just to prove you're legit (you're dealing with a typically-skittish bunch).
Also, it appears that my previous link is no longer correct since updating my Wordpress site. Here is a corrected link to all of my urban exploration photos, as well as my Flickr account:
Why couldn't MARTA work with Oakland to provide pay-parking for the park? Over the last 5 years the HOF has put on some amazing family-oriented all-day events at the cemetery, but the problem has always been parking. And before the obvious "use MARTA" comments, consider that "family" typically includes people, chairs, and coolers as allowed for an event. Lugging all of that onto a MARTA train just isn't sMARTA. At some of the events where they did partner with, and offer the lot (for pay), it was full by mid-day and stayed as such through the end of the event. That's the kind of collaboration I'd like to see more of.
Why bother going full-bore on the war when the prison system is so well funded? Just do enough to make it look like effort is being made, and continue to make an example out of the users not the traffickers.
I'm .7mi away (about 15 minutes by foot) so "hello" to the neighbors posting. This is just another in a long history of drug houses along the I-85 corridor. The last big one over here was on Buckingham Place, "the largest methamphetamine seizure east of the Mississippi River". http://www.ajc.com/news/drug-war-hits-home…
Pullman is definitely a great location, and I'm glad to see that listed here. I'm also happy they haven't torn down this piece of history, but it's unfortunate that it's so troublesome to get into.

If you like old trains but want a bit more of a legal entrance, try the SE RR Museum in Duluth. http://srmduluth.org/
And no mention of Tunes from the Tombs at Historic Oakland?
