Orb Colors

In every evidence packet we send out, I include our "Orb Colors Explained" .pdf to help you decipher what your orb colors mean.

We always encourage people to take photos while in the warehouse, and every night, we capture some orb on the radar, which is exciting and great to take home and show family and friends when you return from Savannah.

Below is a copy of that .pdf for anyone who is trying to uncover the meaning of the different colors of orbs in their photographs.

What to Ask?

The first obstacle that has to be overcome when you get the equipment in your hands is, "What do I ask?"  And we have found this to be the hardest part of any investigation to get over, the first few minutes of silence from the group before they get comfortable enough to ask questions.

So, to save you from having to listen to my nasal-y, Northern accent all night, here's a list of some general questions to start off your investigation:

  • What's your name?
  • How many are in here?
  • Are there any women here?
  • How did you die?
  • How old are you?
  • Why are you still here?

When you start getting answers, try these:
  • Were you married?
  • Did you have any kids?
  • What did you do for a living?
  • Where are you from?
  • Why do you stay here?
  • How old were you when you died?

If you're brave, start asking them to play with the equipment:
  • Can I take a picture of you?
  • Can you come towards the green light and make it blink (the EMF detector)?
  • Can you make the red light blink (the REM pod)?
  • Can you touch the doll?
  • Can you touch me?
  • Can you make a noise?

If you're not getting anything, try talking amongst yourselves, and they'll generally respond to you or ask them about food (seriously):
  • Do you like pie/cake?
  • Do you like beer/wine?
  • What's your favorite food?
  • Do you miss food?

The most important thing to remember is -- ask whatever you want!  It's your investigation, make the most of it!  Don't think you're going to ask something stupid, you won't!  Participate and see what you get.

Trust me, I listen to all the recorders weekly, and I've heard it all.  You'll entertain me if you ask something off-the-wall.

The Running Man

Lately, we've reported seeing a "running man" in the front corner of the warehouse.  He is essentially a dark grey to black shadow figure that will run from one side of the warehouse into the briefing room.

Everyone on our crew has reported seeing him at various times, and, lately, we've even gotten some weird things happening in the briefing room, which we generally refer to as a "safe area."  REM pods will go off by themselves, the doll will start blinking, or we will have weird random blurps in EMF.  In the past, nothing has ever happened in that room.

A few weekends ago, we were sold out, and I put a group in that front corner where the running man is generally seen.  In this area, the camera captured multiple black shadows the whole night on film.  In the corner of the photo, in the middle of it, in all areas of it.  It was very strange, and the other pictures they took during the night did not have the same problem, save for two that were taken in the opposite corner of the warehouse, but still in the warehouse itself.

The craziest part about it was, the group was sitting down.  The warehouse is pitch black.  And the photos were taken with nothing and no one standing in front of the camera to cause a shadow with the flash.  Also, it was the camera that we use on our investigations nightly, so thinking it was a problem with the camera is not really true since we used it the other night, in the same area, and got nothing.

We've captured some black shadows before in the Slave Quarters, but to get multiple ones in the same night in the vast area of the warehouse really peaked our interest.

Have a look.  What do you think?

The Gribble House in the Savannah Morning News

Last November, just as we were starting to do tours at the Gribble House, the murders and our crew were featured in a front page article of the Sunday paper in the Savannah Morning News.

It was pretty amazing.  And, as you read from our story about the hat on Friday, some good things came from it.

The past Thursday, we were featured, yet again, in the Savannah Morning News in a follow up, two-page article about what people can expect when they visit the Gribble House to tour and a little about what we've been capturing and seeing within its walls.

A big thank you to Linda Sickler at the Savannah Morning News for featuring us and writing two amazing articles for us!
