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!

No Happy Endings In This Castle

As mentioned in the post I put up on Sunday talking about this week’s theme, I said that Washington made me think of Starbucks, Grey’s Anatomy, and grunge rock bands. And all of those things can be found in Seattle, Washington. Another thing that can be found in Seattle is an unassuming three story house that is located down on Carleton Avenue South. Continue reading No Happy Endings In This Castle

Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

As you know, two weekends ago I attended the Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival. If you know me at all, you can tell just by the title of the festival that this festival is perfect for me because it combines two of my favorite things- horror movies and paranormal stuff. Add in the fact that it was taking place at a haunted location and in a town I have been wanting to visit for a while because of its history. Continue reading Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

This Week’s Theme: Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

This week we are taking a break from my weekly theme of writing about different states’ haunted locations or urban legends to talk about the festival I went to last weekend. Why didn’t I write about it last week? Well, because life happened. After spending the weekend staying up late every night with investigations and watching scary movies, I needed a day or two to recover some of my spoons. While taking those recovery days, we finally got word that Jeremy can check out of his current command at the end of the month! Which means we will FINALLY be moving to San Diego as of November 1st! It’s finally happening!!! Between the plans we have this weekend celebrating Kelsey’s birthday and our friend, Mike, coming into town; and my trip to Salem, Mass. next week with my sister-in-law, Reba, I have very little time to prepare for this move. So I took the rest of the week to start preparing what I can for this move and to figure out how we are going to do this. Now that most of all that is taken care of, I can focus on writing again! Woohoo! Continue reading This Week’s Theme: Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

How Many Ghosts Haunt Here?

The subject of today’s post was one that was sent to me via Instagram. Thank you, James H. for recommending this topic. He said this was a location that he visited as a child and remembered hearing other kids playing on the second floor, but he and his sister were the only kids visiting the house at the time. I had not heard of this house before he recommended it and it was fun to research to it. If you have a place, cryptid, or urban legend you want me to talk about on here, please let me know. I am always looking for new topics to research and learn about. You can either let me know in the comments below, message me on one of my social media pages, or email me.  Continue reading How Many Ghosts Haunt Here?

What Is Ethical Ghost Hunting: What To Wear

What does what you wear to an investigation have to do with ethical ghost hunting? Well, actually quite a bit. Not only do you want to dress in a way that won’t offend the client or the spirits, but you also don’t want to create the frustration that comes when reviewing footage and team members have to try to rule out if they are seeing something paranormal or something caused by a team member’s clothing choice. Continue reading What Is Ethical Ghost Hunting: What To Wear

Investigation At Our House (featuring Ghostnet Paranormal)

As you know, last week I was on vacation with my family. Before I left for vacation, though, we had Ghostnet Paranormal come out to our house for an investigation. While I have shared the ghostly going ons in our home with y’all for the two years or so, I felt that it would be best to have someone come out to verify our claims, so you know that what we share is legit. Continue reading Investigation At Our House (featuring Ghostnet Paranormal)

Making Some Spooky Plans

Things are getting exciting around here despite COVID trying to ruin things. I hope that y’all aren’t being affected by COVID and that life is starting to return somewhat to normal. Here in central Illinois, somethings are returning to a vague sense of normal and other things are going backwards. Places downtown are going back to outdoor seating only, and more businesses are enforcing the mask rules (which I appreciate). Continue reading Making Some Spooky Plans

What Is Ethical Ghost Hunting: Before The Investigation

Something y’all have heard me talk about before is ethical ghost hunting. Ethical ghost hunting is a way to interact with the spirits, a location, and the owners without causing issues for anyone involved. But there is more to it than just how to behave while on the investigation. Continue reading What Is Ethical Ghost Hunting: Before The Investigation
