Shocking Secrets in America's Caves!

In ancient times, caves were the ultimate refuge from the elements. It was a temperature-controlled location where man could park himself and his belongings safely to ride out the weather or live year-round. Important religious scrolls have been found in caves, hidden treasures, mummies, and amazing art work. Caves are ideal storehouses for keeping things dry and temperature controlled, but it isn't just something we do today to preserve; ancients thought to keep things safe for all time, as well.

How To Perceive Ghosts

Where am I going to encounter ghosts?
The bigger question is WHEN?

The Case of the Abandoned Ghost Ship

The sea is a cruel mistress. She giveth and she taketh away. Such is the case of the "Dei Gratia."

Appreciating Creepy Cemeteries: What Makes Cemeteries Creepy?

Creepy cemeteries - they are the thing that dreams are made of.  This past summer, Julie and I went to the cemetery used for the filming of "Night of the Living Dead" and it lived up to our expectations. It was isolated, no visitors, felt like the end of the world, surrounded by woods, rustic, and an intense feeling of being watched.

Red-Orange Orb UFOs

We hear a lot about saucer-shaped UFOs, cigar-shaped ones, even triangular and pentagonal, but we don't talk publicly about another oddity in the sky, the red-orange lights.

Growing Up in a Civil War Hospital

1860s - post Civil War

My upbringing in a Civil War hospital in Northern Virginia changed the course of my life. I lived in the big scary house on the hill, known to be haunted, and I was never going to be able to feel quite like the other kids who grew up in tract housing with modern furnishings. Mine was a Munsters existence in a bedroom community of Washington, D.C.

Haunted Caves and Cave Horrors!

Caves are more than the sites of mines and ancient hieroglyphs, the burial places of giants, and homes for bats. They can also be haunted. And, why not? In desperate times, caves were utilized for sanctuary and sometimes standoffs and, given the geology, they seem like ideal vessels in a feng shui sort of way, to retain and hold a kind of amplified haunting that is held captive in a cul-du-sac formation. I am utterly fascinated with the haunted cave phenomena. I cannot think of a better spirit vessel.

One of the Best UrbEX sites on YouTube

My readers know how passionate I am about urban exploration. I grew up with a mother who was an historian uncovering the history of our historic estate, Aspen Grove, and I rambled around the grounds with a metal detector digging up artifacts. The exploration and chronicling of abandoned sites that might go extinct to demolition or decay is a big passion of mine. Many sites I've documented were destroyed soon after. 

Lurking around dark forbidden places with reminders of its prior use is the activity we refer to commonly as UrbEx or urban exploration. 

I'm going to showcase one of several channels on You Tube that I follow. It is called RnK All Day. When you subscribe, be sure to click on the bell-shape - you can get email notices every time they upload a new video.
