Saturday night Bob and I went out on a date. Bob's parents were here visiting and were nice enough to let us go out alone. I had grabbed a flyer the day before for a ghost hunting tour and I really wanted to go. I'm not sure why, it just sounded fun. I don't even know what I believe about ghosts, but I do think the show ghost hunters is scary. Anyway, it took some convincing to get Bob to go but he finally agreed.
We left 30 minutes early which should have gotten us there about 10-15 minutes early but it didn't quite work out that way. We quickly stopped at the store and got cash and ran back to the car. Still on schedule, but when we got to the mile long bridge it was bumper to bumper. There was an accident. I stressfully sat in the car watching the gps say we were going to arrive later and later. We both thought we weren't going to make it. Luckily we arrived just after the tour started and we were able to catch them and join in.
The guy who lead the tour wasn't trying to be scary or spook us, he just mater-of-factly took us around for about an hour and told us about his and other's ghost sightings in the area. He really didn't seem to care if we believed him or not and he just stated things like they were facts. Here is a link to his website.
After this we walked back and he brought out his huge tv and showed us pictures, videos, and sound recordings. This is when I started to get freaked out. The pictures just had circles on them that he said were energy balls. The video was a little scary. He filmed it with a normal camera and a infrared. The normal didn't pick up anything, but the infrared picked up this blob moving through the park and then lay down on the cannon, then it floated up into the air and disappeared. Infrared detected heat, and the blob was a much colder color than any living thing. The scariest thing for me was the audios. He put a recorder in several spots that are reported haunted and left it there, watching it for several hours. On a few of them he played for us what at first sounds like a loud breeze. But the more we listened to it it actually sounded like the ghosts were saying things. One said "leave" and that one scared me. Another one said "no more fireworks" right after the guy said it into the microphone, he things the ghost was mimicking him. Just thinking about it now is giving me the chills.
Anyway, I am not sure what was real and what wasn't. But I do believe there are spirits all around us, whether they can show themselves and haunt us I don't know. I do believe that there is no doubt in the guides mind that ghosts are real. What do you think?
