Exploring Abandoned Mine Tunnels in Arizona and Testing New Gear

First off, do not try what was attempted in this video blog above at home or away from home. Going into abandoned mine shafts, tunnels and other ruins is dangerous! It may be fun, but criminals, wild animals, dead wild animals, poisonous things, rock fall, Philip Bloom, explosive gasses, and other dangers/injury could lurk inside. […]
