Paranormal Campout and Ghost tour

June 25th, WPI hosted a camp out and Ghost tour to the old mine town of Frisco Utah located in Beaver County not far from Milford. In 1875 two prospectors named James Ryan and Samuel Hawks on their way to work found a deposit of Ore. The next day they posted a clam on the area and sold it fearing that it was not a large deposit when in fact it would produce over twenty five thousand tons of Ore with a high content of Silver in the next five years.
The town it self slowly grew and became a large community but like many towns built around mining they would die in the 1920s. What remains are some old buildings a cemetery that needs a lot of work and the ghost of those who worked this area.
We set up camp no more than a 100 yards from the cemetery with 13 of us looking forward to a great night of ghost hunting. Dinner was pot luck and man we were lucky, Dutch oven potatos, some vegetables stemed in a Dutch Oven, great baked beans, and lots of fun. Around 9 pm we set off to the cemetery hoping to talk to some of the miners who made their finale resting place here. I for one hate to see cemetery's left to rot and this one has had more than rot done to it, signs of people riding over graves with ATV's, weeds and sagebrush growing everywhere and most tombstones no longer able to be read. Many young children were put to rest here, as we know life on the plans can not be easy and even harder for the youth. With a full moon climbing over the mountains and putting a glow over the valley we headed to the old smelters about two miles from the camp site.
As a ghost hunter we see many historical sites like this being forgotten or taken over by government land management this ghost town is no different. Decay has set in and I would say 20 years from now there will be nothing left, as for the ghost that night not much was found have around four or five hours of audio to go over, but to say it was only about looking for ghost would be wrong. It was so good to hang with friends and people who have the same interests as each other, sitting around a camp fire laughing and having a great time. This will not be the last Paranormal Camp out and Ghost hunt WPI will do and we look forward to so many more.

Boys night at the Baron Mill

Last night I spent six hours at the Baron Woolen Mill with some of Guys from the team, Doug, Riley, Russ, and David. Thank god no lady's joined us as we felt by the end of the night it was a slumber party back in Jr. High. With warnings that none of our wives will no be aloud to listen to the audio, and those that are not married who were there are warned not to post any of it. It was a great night for investigation with activity and many sounds that could not be explained. The night started in the boiler room, an area we feel is the most active in the location. The next hour was spent just sitting and asking some EVP questions and having a great time talking like most men do when they get together with out their wives. As the night grew darker if it is possible to even be darker in this part of the building we all felt an ominous feeling. A shadow could be seen at the top of the stairs leading to the second floor. With temperature drops of eight degrees, Doug feeling as if something would jump out at him any moment.
After an hour and half we moved to the Warehouse activity has slowly increased in this area with people pushed, scratched, and touched. Around ten minutes into sitting in the area a loud bang was heard on the building wall, no real wind and with inspection no trees in the area where the sound was heard. Russ and Riley at one point felt as if the area around them was growing darker only sitting around five feet from each other could not see each other.
The banging on the wall continued around every ten minutes, no more than an hour in this area we heard someone run along the outside of the building we split up into two teams and inspected the outside of the building with no one found.
After a short time we all headed back to the Boiler room once more, the feeling was very heavy and the air felt thick as if we were under water. The area was darker then I feel it has ever been and the feeling was even more dark and I for one felt as if I need to be ready to run at any second. The dark shadow was seen once more at the top of the stairs foot steeps could me heard on the second floor and David and Russ went up to see if anyone was in the building. We had locked the front door and if anyone had entered the building it would have been throw a broken window. After checking the building and making sure we were the only ones there we began to get more temperature drops and went down ten degrees in under three minutes. We continued to hear foot fall on the second floor, banging on the walls, and shadows up the stairs.
The night ended around 2 am and with a fantastic night, lots of laughs and it was nice to hang with good friends. I look forward to more long nights at the Baron Woolen Mill.

They Kept saying my Name

Last night I held the last tour to the Baron Woolen Mill, we had a large group but man they all know how to ghost hunt. Starting around 8 pm and around 50 people we began the tour. Walking around this historical site is incredible so much to see and it saddens me to see it slowly falling apart. The night started off right as we split into teams and headed off to the areas we would be checking out for the first hour. I lead a group of girls, teens, and gun nuts ( could it get any better than that) starting off in the lower part of the Mill close to the Boiler the energy was high. So many things have happen in this area its hard to write them all down, from full apparitions to dark shadows. Tonight looked as if it would be a very active one.
Small KII hits (KII is a hand held EMF detector) with the lights starting to respond to questions asked. Twice for yes and once for no, we found that there were two spirits in the location with us both male and not to happy with us being there. As we walked into the back room we call the ash room the air it self felt as if it was full of energy. More communication with who we believe to be a young girl named Mary some of the women in the group could not even enter the room it self. I had invited my younger sister along with us and we were standing next to each other as what felt as if two hands pushed us a part to move past us. I at first thought she had seen something and got scared and pushed me out of the way to run, but as I looked she was leaning the other direction from me. I had a small scratch appear on my back. For about an forty minutes we continued to investigate.
We gathered back outside to move to the next spot when a dark shadow was seen at the top of a set of stairs and in the room next to us. One women even screamed after seeing the shadow. We were able to debunk one of the shadows, it would seem a light on the street and a tree were casting the shadow on one of the walls.
The most interesting part of the night would be start about 11:50 pm I had meet up with another group back in the boiler room Riley started to get a real bad headache when many of us heard a voice, I heard my name being said in a soft whisper. Than it would be said two more times as I headed out to check and see if someone was playing a joke on us and was saying the name in another part of the building. After I left and finding that no one was in the part of the building we heard my name being said I went to listen to the audio and check to see if I had captured the voice. Reviewing my audio I captured the voice and my name three times. In the meantime Rileys headache grew worse and he would black out and I was informed that my name was continued to be said, and growing louder as the minutes pasted. The Baron Woolen Mill has continued to amaze me and many others.
