There are some good stories there Kelly. I hope we don't attract any teenybopper-spook-seekers, but I've got to ask, has anyone experienced anything strange or eerie while visiting GTs or abandoned mining sites? :eek:

Had a girlfriend a few years back that claimed to be empathic. After visiting a cemetary one afternoon, she said she felt a presence next to me the whole time we were there. I started to ask if the presence followed me back to the Jeep, instead just told her to keep it to herself ,as I was already freaked out wondering how far this presence was following me. I don't want to know if its still here or not. Sometimes too much knowledge is a BAD thing.

Also, while visiting Sunnyside, I felt "**** uncomfortable" on one side of the house, for no apparent reason. Like someone was right behind me. I guess its a guy thing, but I felt slightly better with my sweaty paw wrapped tightly around the six-shooter on my hip.

You're right OJ. Excellent writing! I could feel the hair on the back of my neck beginning to stand up. Nice work Drifter! You're lucky, if our dog hears any sounds when we're out camping, he hides behind us and doesn't utter a sound. :rolleyes:

I think he was going through Slurpee with drawls :D



Never anything really spooky that I remember, at least nothing that wasn't explainable ( I'm one of those that likes to find out what the noise is :rolleyes: ). I have had some wierd stuff happen to me in the older casinos/hotels here that I couldn't explain.

I've heard stories of a ghost woman that resides in Ryholite,NV and I know I have a book that mentioned it, but I'll have to find it. Also stories of a couple who live(d) in Fallon, NV or someplace that bought a house and had weird issues. The tore out a wall in the basement for remodel and found the body of teenage girl. Turns out the ex-owner liked hitch hikers. Once they found the girls body and the guy was caught and convicted, the issues stopped.
