Last year I was invited to an overnight ghosthunting adventure in Front Royal, Virginia. A local ghosthunting group (called VAPR – the Virginia Paranormal Research) was doing an investigation of the historical Balthis House. We assembled at the property at sunset and got all the equipment ready to roll.
Then we were in the dark for the next eight hours.
There were noises throughout the night but nothing we could find a source for and – of course! – the batteries on all the hand-held equipment had to be continuously swapped out with fresh ones as the power was drained. It was a long night chasing the chimera.
But after reviewing all the “evidence” gathered from the house, we had nothing. No ghostly apparitions, no creepy voices caught on tape, nothing.
When they investigated the famous Belle Boyd House, there was a lot more to write about.
I started ghosthunting when I was very young, having lived in some interesting places, and I’ll get into those along the way, I am sure.
But everyone has a fireside story to swap, and I invite yours.
