Kelley was our lead investigator on Sunday night with a great group. It just so happened to be one of the investigators birthday's and when her mother asked if the spirits would like to wish her a happy day over the Ghost Box they heard "Happy", and then "Make wish". Pretty cool!
One interesting moment happened in the Slave Quarters for one lady in particular. She was seated in the room and asked the spirits if they could see her. Over the Ghost Box they heard "Eagle", which didn't seem to make much sense. Turns out that the woman had a purse on with an eagle on it, but it was covered by her jacket.
Everyone who investigated had great Ghost Meter Pro activity, with the device lighting up on cue when asked direct questions. One investigator asked if the spirit could make the Ghost Meter Pro jump all the way to the right, and it did just after he asked. He asked them to do it again, and once more the needle jumped up. Awesome!
On Monday night, Kelley lead the way again. On this night, the group of ladies seemed to have a lot of women and child spirits around them, while the other pair of women attracted more male spirits. It was very interesting. Everyone heard quite a few "Get out"s and "Leave"s in almost every area of the building.
The women who attracted more of the child and female spirits had a very odd experience. At one point, she asked a child spirit they were communicating with to hold her hand. She told Kelley and the other women that it felt like something was gripping her hand. Kelley used the Digital Thermometer to see what the temperature was, and the area around her was 50 degrees but her hand registered at 38 degrees. Crazy!
While at the Stage Area, the other group of ladies had their own interesting experience. Kelley had walked up to the hot spot and asked for Paul. Over the Spirit Box they heard "Kelley" come through. One of the guests walked away from the Stage and over the Spirit Box came "Are you worried?". Her friend who was still on the Stage heard this and as she got ready to answer they heard "What do you think" come through the Spirit Box, almost like the spirits were responding to each other.
Ted was our lead investigator on Tuesday night with a wonderful couple named Mark and Vickie. All over the building the pair got some great K-II action and Raggedy Ann doll activity.
Paul was his regular, perturbed self at the Stage Area that night. When they walked up to the hot spot they asked "Is this Paul". Through the Ghost Box they got the reply of "Yes". While they continued to ask him questions, rather than answer they were taunted and called names like "Wussy", and "Bitch". Vickie asked Paul why he was in a bad mood that night and "Stop" came through. After a few minutes they asked again "Are you in a better mood now Paul?". "Yes" was the response, but when they asked him to touch the red light the response they got was "Screw that". Deciding that it was time to leave Paul alone, Vickie asked if he was upset with them. "You bet" they heard.
While in the Gribble House area, the couple may have made contact with Carrie. Her name came through the Ghost Box several times in both male and female voices. The K-II Meter Mark was holding was very active in this area, going off and flashing to the red several times. The Digital Thermometer documented several temperature changes. One in particular dropped from 53 degrees to 46 degrees and then shot back up. Interesting...
On Wednesday night, Kelley was our lead investigator again. There seemed to be a huge amount of orbs running around and showing up on pictures and on the CCTV screen. Everyone captured orbs on their photos.
There was a creepy moment in the Slave Quarters. There seemed to be only male voices coming through the Ghost Box, so one of the investigators asked if the women and children could speak now. Through the Ghost Box they heard strange laughter and a firm "NO" come through. But, more women and children voices did come through.
One investigator's nickname of Cricket came through the Spirit Box, which is really neat. But there were quite a few names coming through. They heard Paul, George, Peter, Ezra, Andrew, Bob, and John. John was the name of another investigator. His name was called through the Spirit Box while he was getting some really intense K-II Meter activity on cue. They also had some really interesting REM Pod activity. The REM Pod was set up near the gate and it was touched to several times. In fact, it shot down to the blue to indicate there was a temperature drop.
Soft phrases and light whispers came through the Spirit Box all night, but it was too quiet to really tell what the spirits were trying to communicate.
Kait was our lead investigator on Friday night with a great crew who came in ready to go- which was great, because activity started as soon as they entered the building! When they went into the Slave Quarters, the Raggedy Ann doll started blinking immediately. The group took that as a welcome sign, so they said "Hello" to the spirits in the room. Just after the said "Hello", they got a "Hi" in response. Pretty neat.
As they say in the Slave Quarters, the investigators tried to get the spirits to communicate some real information to them, not just random chatter. The answers they got were kind of funny. Kait asked "How many spirits are in this room right now" and "Ten" came through the Ghost Box. She then asked if she could have all their names. "NO" came through. "Why can't you tell us your names" she then asked, with the response of "Stop it". They were obviously getting annoyed, but Kait asked "Stop what". "ASKING" came through the Spirit Box loud and clear.
One particular spirit they heard from all night was someone who identified themselves as "Bro", but wouldn't give any other name. They heard from him in the Slave Quarters, the Stage Area, and the Gribble House area. In the Gribble House hot spot Bro told them that he was "Coming".
Towards the end of the night, the group moved back into the Slave Quarters to see if they could get any more action, and something really cool happened. One investigator laid a twenty dollar bill on the table and asked one of the spirits to move it. IT actually moved pretty significantly, and almost fell off the table. No one was touching it, and there was absolutely no breezes in that closed room. They decided to leave the bill there while everyone left the room for a few minutes. When they went back in, the bill had fallen completely. Crazy!
Everyone was shaking in their boots from the cold on Saturday night, but that didn't stop us from having a really great investigation with Ted as the lead. Everyone really seemed to be into the paranormal, and were ready to go!
At the Stage Area, they were taking pictures to see what could would come up. At one point Ted said "Here comes the flash" and over the Ghost Box they heard "Hey dude". Another investigator asked "Do you want us to take your picture?" and "I do" was the response. "Where do you want your picture taken" they then asked. "In the corner" they heard come through. Cool!
One of the investigators, Jared, used the K-II Meter for most of the night, and he got really great results with it. It almost seemed like a spirit was following them around the warehouse because it was flashing so often and so consistently. Quite a few times the activity on the K-II Meter coincided with the REM Pod that Ted had set up on the railing near the Stage Area. The REM Pod documented a few cold spots by flashing blue. Another investigator, Trisha, felt her own cold spot near the doorway at the Gribble House area which felt like a breeze, but there was no air moving around in the building.
In the Residual Area there was some really interesting activity. One of the guests heard what sounded like someone running outside the building next to the side door, so they asked "Who is running?". The response they got through the Spirit Box was "Not me". They then asked "What do you see the lady here wearing", pointing at the woman sitting next to him. "Pink" came through, which is amazing because she was wearing a pink sweater. They then felt that same cold breeze moving past them.
