“This Place Is Alive” featuring Travelers Moon Paranormal

When I knew I was going to be doing locations in Iowa this week, I knew there was a team I needed to reach out to. I had met Chris Nielson and Kelly McCarville at The Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival. They are the paranormal investigators that make up Travelers Moon Paranormal. While at the festival, I really enjoyed getting to know them and learning about some of the techniques that they use. They were the ones to introduce me to the Estes method which the spirit box technique you saw Paranormal MIT use during the investigation at our house a month ago where one person uses headphones to listen to a spirit box but they can’t hear questions being asked by the team during the session. It’s a way to get unbiased answers from the spirit box in real time. Anyways, I knew I wanted to reach out to Travelers Moon Paranormal because they have experience with both of the locations this week. Especially today’s topic. Kelly and Chris go to Edinburgh Manor every few weeks and have had some interesting experiences.  Continue reading “This Place Is Alive” featuring Travelers Moon Paranormal

Not As Abandoned As It Appears

While Jeremy and I were staying in Peoria briefly last year, we got the chance to go down to Alton, Illinois for the evening for a talk by one of my favorite paranormal authors. While we were down there I had hoped to have a chance to drive by today’s topic but unfortunately an accident caused us to run later than we were planning. Maybe when we go back to Illinois for our friends’ wedding we can stop by the McPike Mansion.  Continue reading Not As Abandoned As It Appears

The Ladies Of The Afterlife Are Waiting For You Here

On this blog we have cover a variety of different places from private residences to hotels and camp sites to castles and movie theaters but we have yet to talk about a brothel. That changes today as we talk about the longest running brothel in United States history. The Dumas Brothel was established in Butte Montana back in 1890 and was open as a brothel until 1982. And while the doors maybe officially closed to the public, there are still a few spirits left behind that haven’t stopped living their afterlife at the Mercury Street building.  Continue reading The Ladies Of The Afterlife Are Waiting For You Here

These Guests Don’t Want To Check Out

When researching this hotel, I could understand why these spirits didn’t want to leave. There have been several hotels that I have visited over the years that I loved so much that I regretting having check out at the end of my vacation. Maybe it was the trip itself, the amazing staff making it feel like a second home, or just a break from normal life that made it impossible to say goodbye but the Palmer House is full of spirits that just couldn’t check out when it was time to move on.  Continue reading These Guests Don’t Want To Check Out

Table For 100 Spirits, Please!

When I was looking for suggestions this week’s locations, I had a few people mention this restaurant. The more I looked into it, the more intrigued I became by it. The amount of activity that happens here and the amount of spirits that seem to wander through easily explains why this restaurant is considered to be Utah’s most haunted restaurant. I also love the family history associated with the Leslie’s Family Tree Restaurant.  Continue reading Table For 100 Spirits, Please!

Meeting A Paranormal Celebrity

While I was checking out, I saw a book by the register. It was one of those local books about the area’s ghosts that most gift shops have. What caught me off guard was that I recognized the face on the cover of the book. It was someone I grew up hearing about from my dad and shows like Unsolved Mysteries. It was Robert the doll. Continue reading Meeting A Paranormal Celebrity

Brown Mountian Lights

While I was in North Carolina visiting my family, my mom and I decided to go check out the Brown Mountian Lights. I had heard of the phenomenon often growing up as it was a semi-local legend known in North Carolina. Even though it was a few hours drive from where I grew up, I never ventured up there to experience the phenomenon. Continue reading Brown Mountian Lights

Fun Investigations Versus Private Investigations

One question I seem to be asked a lot since I have started being more open about being a paranormal investigator is if I only do private investigations or if I do “fun” investigations. Yes, I do both. Just because I help families and spirits, doesn’t mean I don’t love to do more relaxed investigations too. Continue reading Fun Investigations Versus Private Investigations

Growing As A Paranormal Investigator

I grew up thinking everyone else had similar experiences as me, but I quickly learned that my classmates didn’t. I won’t say I was bullied because of my experiences but I wasn’t usually taken seriously. This was before Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures were popular. I wanted to share my experiences with my peers, but I wasn’t sure how to do it. Continue reading Growing As A Paranormal Investigator
