With a little puck...Posted Sunday, October 31, 2010, at 10:53 PM
I'm going to call 2010's Ghost Hunting 101 a success!
We had a group of about 30 students, which I understand is fairly small, but I thought it worked out well for the investigation portion of the class Saturday night.
We rotated three groups through Rose Theater, Johnson Faculty Center, and the Huhn-Harrison house by the River Campus. The students then all converged on Lorimier Cemetery for a little bit of late-night creepiness. The only location that seemed to have anything going on was the Harrison house, which I was lucky enough to be stationed at for the evening.
Several people reported creepy feelings, a light apparently came on by itself, a little bit of K2 activity and plenty of power drains. We had some interesting experiences with a new experimental tool called a paranormal puck. It is essentially a word generator, and often will spout random nonsense. But every once in a while it does come out with something relevant. Kendall, a friend on loan for the evening from Ghost Recon Paranormal, even identified a few words the puck said that were not in its programmed vocabulary. In one of the most interesting events of the night, the puck, which doesn't normally put together complete sentences, told one of the class participants to turn off his flashlight!
I haven't come across any conclusive evidence yet among my recordings, just a possible EVP or two (jury's still out), but it was an educational evening, for the teachers as much as the students.
Thank you so much to everyone who attended and contributed to the class! If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me. I hope you had as great a time as we did, and I look forward to seeing what evidence everyone captured!
