Ever watched Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, or any other show that has to do with paranormal investigations and want to try your hand at it? Well this is your chance. We will do it in Minuteman National Park and walk the Battle Road trail looking for spooks. We will meet at the Minuteman Visitor Center Parking lot and walk the trail where you can attempt to capture evidence of paranormal activity. We will stop when we reach the Hartwell Tavern as there is a stretch of road between the tavern and the ranger station where I have fellow investigators that have captured photos and evps as well as a first hand experience. This investigator friend of mine crouched down to get a pebble out of her show when what appeared to be a left hand panned across her face. She thought it was her husband, but he was already pretty far up the road and no one else was nearby that could have done that. I have also attached a photo that was captured outside of the Hartwell Tavern. This may sound a little incoherent, but this is pretty late at night and I'm ready for bed. I have attached a great photo of a mist seemingly blocking the road. Do we know for certain it's a ghost? No, but the picture is cool nonetheless.
If we get a good turnout for this, I'll look into trying to book better locations possibly on a quarterly or bi-monthly basis.
A couple of early FAQs
Q: How long have you been a ghost hunter?
A: I've been investigating for 2 years and though I've never captured any photos, I do have a few evps.
Q: Why are we doing this in the day time?
A: I think that this is a great location as it's open, it's free, and can accommodate many people plus a tremendous history. While the photo attached was taken at night, the investigators present were unaware that they weren't allowed to be there after dark and were told to leave by the park rangers. Unwritten code of ghost hunters is to always follow the rules.
Q: Will we see any ghosts?
A: Chances are you won't. There is never any guarantee of paranormal activity and anyone that gives you a guarantee is likely to manipulate something. The truth is the most of the time, nothing happens and you capture nothing.
Q: What should I bring with me?
A: Definitely bring a pair of comfortable shoes to walk in. There is a parking lot by the ranger station mentioned above, but as far as I know it's for rangers only. If anyone has better information than I, feel free to contact me. Now in terms of equipment, I would recommend that you at the very least have a digital camera, digital audio recorder, and a flashlight (but you are unlikely to need it.)
Feel free to contact me with any questions. If the weather is bad, this will be canceled and rescheduled possibly with another location.
