Inspired to post these pictures by this thread: http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...hreadid=3117747. This goon has the right idea - we all have neighbors who do "suspicious" things. Why not investigate?

Place: The Roseland family home. Two houses down from my own.

Former Occupants: Mr. and Mrs. Roseland. Their daughter Jennifer. Their son Joseph.

Abandoned: One week ago.

Why: They are visiting relatives in Akron, Ohio.

This house has been a haunting figure of my life for many and many years. July 2006, I asked Jennifer Roseland on a date with me. She told me that she was seeing Robert Sparks from school already. Robert Sparks used to laugh at me when I would correct the teacher in English class. Robert Sparks was an rear end in a top hat. What could have happened at her home to make her self-esteem so low that she would seek validation from such an awful person? One of the many mysteries of the Roseland family home.

Built sometime in the '70s, the Roseland family home has stood proudly as a neighborhood fixture over the years. I have been inside it exactly seven times. Joseph Roseland invited me over for a sleepover once. I had trouble sleeping that night. The blanket he gave me smelled odd.

Strangeness continues...

The Roselands keep a key to their home under their welcome mat. Why do they do this? I do not know, but I am thankful for the act. Casually observing Jennifer one day, I noticed her reaching under the mat for the key. I have been using it to explore the premises when they are absent ever since.

Yes, Urban Exploration is in some cases illegal, but as long as you obey the code ("take nothing but photographs - leave nothing but footprints"), you are morally in the right.

So let's get this pony show started.

Their fireplace. Note how barren this area of the house is. Soot covers the area in front of the fireplace - perhaps misused by vandals? A very sad photograph, one of my favorites.

The basement area. There is a sort of makeshift living room down here. The open door leads into a and sparsely decorated bedroom. Joseph's, I believe. He is living here while attending community college. (This was a very creepy area of the house - constantly felt I like was being watched)

Joseph's bed. It smelled very strange. Perhaps dope (marijuana)? Will investigate further in future trips.

The bathroom connected to Joseph's bedroom. Looks like it hasn't been worked on since the early '90s. Absolutely beautiful in its antiquity.

Common sight for any urban explorer.

Storage and laundry area also on the basement level. My favorite thing about this picture is the bra randomly strewn. Smelled it - didn't smell like Jennifer. Strange.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

Strange picture in the storage area. Haven't exactly figured out what the contraption in the middle is supposed to do. Sure is eerie, though.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

Let's head upstairs.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

Dog toys indicated a dog had once lived here. I do not recall ever seeing one, though I'll admit I have heard some barking in the area... Hrmm.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

No, I did not leave that copy of Caddyshack next to the small church. I did get a kick out of the juxtaposition, though.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

"Are they all fakes?" you think. The answer? Only some, surprisingly.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

A dining area. No, I did not taste the beverages left behind. I do not drink - I am not a wasteoid. And who knows if it's safe anyway...


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

Dog cage - further evidence of a hound existing here at some point. Empty, though. There was a couple of sections of newspaper laying around. If I had to guess, I'd say it was a little over a week old. Just left out to yellow up and crinkle.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

If any goons could identify the weird thing framed here, that would be very much appreciated. Still baffled by it.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

Creepy hallway leading to the Jennifer's bedroom and a closet-type thing. Wish I had gotten better pictures of those paintings. Very creepy, they were.


Click here for the full 1024x768 image.

This picture of a Furby in Jennifer's room was the last thing I managed to snap a shot of before my imagination got to me (thought I kept hearing a car pull up into the driveway), and I bailed on the place. I'd left the lights on for too long anyway.

I'm hoping to go back there sometime before the family comes home, and I'll definitely update the thread when I do. Probably will have to be a day trip, though. Sorry guys, I'm a bit of a puss.

Unless these are actually pictures of your own house and this is all just a big joke. In which case, good going, I guess.

When I first read the thread, I thought maybe your neighbors had asked you to watch their house for them, feed their dog, etc. Then I started reading captions and had to re-read your intro again.

... you broke into their house while they are on vacation to take uninteresting pictures of their basement and family room?

"Oh, and Senator, just one more thing."

Come clean. Are you urban exploring your own house? That's your bra, isn't it? You just wanted it to sound cooler so you made up this Jennifer person. That's your Furby.

Hey, you know, don't feel bad. It's okay to own a Furby. Just, come clean man. You'll feel better.

I had a Furby, and it had green scalp and blue fur. Broke ages ago, though.

Awesome UrbEx, I think that device you couldn't figure out is some how used for making strong ropes, and then testing them by attaching them to the weights.

He didn't break in he used a key! Read the drat OP.

Nice exploration Bambos, really love the fireplace pic. Definitely very poignant somehow. As someone who sometimes partakes in urban exploration, I definitely 'get' these pics, if you know what I mean.

Smelled even worse than it looked. My grandparents lived in the country when I was little, and one spring their basement (full of all sorts of random poo poo) flooded. It was just like that - an awful, dank smell.
