Undisclosed Location, SF Bay Area, CA (9/10/16): How Long Should the Isolation Sessions Be?

I cannot disclose the location of this investigation. Suffice it to say that it was pretty active. Three of us went upstairs to do individual isolation sessions. You'll hear our movements and then Chris says, "And how long are we going to stay in here?" There's some human talk and then a male disembodied voice. Can you make out what the voice is saying? This isn't an EVP as I could clearly hear the voice at the time of the recording. And I could clearly hear the voice coming from Read more [...]

These photos were also taken when Laura J, Joanne, and I were investigating the Basement. Photo 1A: 2 odd streaks of white/light. Photo 1B: Here's Photo 1A with the 2 streaks circled in red.

Holbrooke Hotel, Grass Valley, CA (8/29/16): Streak of Light in Basement

After dinner on 8/29/16 (see photo of light streak in The Owl's Dining Room in prior post), Laura J, Joanne, and I set out to investigate the Holbrooke. There are many, many stories about the Holbrooke being haunted. Supposedly, we weren't staying in a haunted room (we were in room 10) and the one that was supposed to be haunted (room 8), which was several doors down from our room, was already occupied by someone else. It should be no surprise that room 10 wound up having paranormal activity Read more [...]

Owl Grill & Saloon, Grass Valley, CA (8/29/16): Long Streak in Dining Room

On Monday evening (8/29/16), Laura J, Joanne, and I went to eat at the Owl Grill & Saloon in Grass Valley. We chose that place because of George. George was a gambler who played cards; he was shot one day while sitting in that spot for cheating. It is said that his spirit haunts the back Dining Room booth on the right side (closest to the bathrooms). The Owl is a pretty dark place, which adds to the overall slightly creepy vibe inside. After a great ribeye steak, I decided to take some photos Read more [...]

McConaghy House (8/20/16): Streak in Carriage House

I took these photos at the end of our investigation in the Carriage House. I wanted to take photos of the old carriages because, at the start of the evening, I had heard a single creaking noise that sounded like someone getting into the carriage right behind where I was sitting. These 3 photos were taken in rapid succession from the same spot. Photo One: Before photo. Photo Two: Something small streaking past the carriage on the right side. Photo Three: And now Read more [...]

McConaghy House (8/20/16): “Now You See It, Now You Don’t”

Photo One: This is a photo I took on the second floor, at the stairs, during the House tour. I am facing toward the back end of the house, where there are stairs to the attic, 2 more rooms, and a bathroom. Right now, everything but the stairs to the attic are closed to the public. In the far hall, you'll notice a big green hat on what looks like a pile of clothes. I took Photo One because I've always felt that there was a paranormal presence in this hallway whenever I have investigated Read more [...]

Unidentified Location, San Jose, CA (8/6/16): “No, I’m Good. Thank you.”

I've found a lot of possible EVPs that were recorded in the Front Parlor. Here's another one. In this 2nd generation recording, Laura J asks the spirits to let us know if they need anything from us. I can hear a disembodied voice say what sounds like, "No, I'm good. Thank you." This is then followed by several different disembodied voices speaking but I can't make out what they're saying. One may be saying, "I do." Read more [...]

Sacramento Underground Tour (6/11/16): Part 2

These 2nd generation clips were recorded during an EVP session conducted under one of the buildings in Old Sacramento. For more information about why there are underground sections of Old Sacramento, please see "Sacramento Underground Tour (6/11/16): Part 1." I think some/most of the "EVPs" in Part 1 and Part 2 may be outside contamination from the people walking and talking around the area we were in. It was past 6 pm on a busy Saturday. I'm including several clips here so you can better Read more [...]
