    So, this Saturday, I'm going to an old cemetery that is said to be haunted. It was started in the late 1700s to early 1800s. Apparently, a young girl was chased there by an angry mob, and stoned in the cemetery (the reason why is uncertain). She is still buried there.

    The cemetery is like five miles down a dirt road, and then you have a short walk down a trail in the woods to get to it. Lots of eerie things have been reported there. Things like ghosts, orbs, electronic malfunctions (like cars not being able to start, cameras and phones suddenly draining battery, etc), and weird things with animals. People have reported being chased down the road by deer, and also have reported deer mysteriously being impaled on the wrought iron fence that encircles the place (only one entrance/exit).


    I'm pumped. We're bringing a voice recorder, cell phones and possibly disposable cameras. I don't really believe in this stuff, but am open minded, and looking for a good scare.

    I know we've had somewhat similar threads to this in the past, but share some "haunted" house/place experiences.

    I haven't been to the Spaghetti Warehouse in a long time.

    I love how the local news always have the same story every year about haunted places. They can roll out old tape. No one will know.

    I firmly believe in ghosts.

    Being from another country will do that to you.

    I've been there a few times, but didn't see/experience anything. Anything happen to you when you went, Kam?

    What's the deal with spaghetti warehouse?

    I thought Kam was being sarcastic for some reason.

    I don't know why people chase these things. I would make sure I'd be the furthest I can from these places.

    Most likely the most famous "haunted" place in town. I practice at Fransisco studios downtown and I am sure it's got lots of old stories to tell and I wouldn't doubt that it too was "haunted".

    at the Edge of North Shore and Channelview is the site of an old army base that was closed after WWII. All that is left are a couple of tin buildings and I've heard there are underground bunkers. I've been in the tin buildings at night, briefly, but I was told that in the 70's some it is believed that people used the grounds for satanic rituals. Probably mostly BS, but still interesting..especially when I was in High School.

    I had this Ouija board in college... from Toys R Us. Screwed around with it a few times with friends. Nothing ever happened, it didn't even move. Anyways, I took a girl I had recently met on a semi-date to a cemetery the day before Halloween and I brought the ouija board. It was seriously moving around all over the place right after you'd ask a question. She thought I was moving it. I thought she was moving it. I still assume she was moving it. It definitely wasn't me. Crazy experience, but kind of fun.

    Random.

    Stanley Hotel....room 407. It's supposed to be haunted by some Lord Dunraven dude. He didn't bother me much....think he was digging the bowl I shared with him. The shower and the alarm clock acted somewhat oddly, but that could be just mechanical failure. But there was the inexplicable odor of cherry pipe tobacco that just kinda came from nowhere.

    So being chased by a deer is considered paranormal?

    Last time I went was a long time ago. Like Maybe a decade or so. Maybe the last Millennium in fact. (98 or 99)
