Road Trips With Me Are...Weird

So, gal pal road trips include haunted locales, stopping at every single absolutely terrifyingly creepy and abandoned place we can find. I think Julie and I beat our record this time with perhaps 50 abandoned sites we photographed. We stop anywhere and everywhere and always eat at a local diner.

When we were in Kirkland, I reached into my toiletries bag and dug the tip of my finger into a razor. Yeah, OW!!!! I was bleeding like crazy and the place had no Band-Aids. So, I did like I normally do, I rigged something. I tore a panty liner down the middle and wrapped it around my finger and to keep it on all night, I took a hair scrunchy and wrapped it around that a few times. It worked like a charm.
The next morning, we decided to go to Skull Valley...because it was there. We heard it was 7 miles down the road and when you have a place with that name, you must go investigate... We ended up finding that the town was much more organized than other towns we had passed through. It not only had a grocery, gas station and diner, but the citizens kept the place in flawless shape. It was the most charming find ever on a road trip. Oh, and the diner breakfast--SUPREME! (and the coffee was good too) Well, like every trip, we happened upon, well SQUATCH!!! Oh, and a giant frog (just a typical trip)....

  3. We have certain rules we follow to photograph. We both carry pepper spray, but keep the car right besides us and the panic button. We also case the place first to be sure there's no one lurking. I usually like to toss some rocks to scare things away and be sure if anyone is inside, they come out. The places we ran into on this trip were all boarded up and the neighbors stared us down while we took turns photographing while one of us stood sentinel.

    1. MM; It had a cover on it inside the cosmetics bag, but it got jostled off and when I reached in to dig around and find things - damn Scandinavian blood. I don't clot easy. It was a real mess. Thank heavens for my ultra-absorbent panty liners. (cue the feminine napkin music)

  5. What would a trip be without having a squatchy time? I loved Skull Valley and will add the history of the town in my post. It had a very Mayberry feel to it.

    1. Michelle, I'd love to hear about it. Cheryl talked to us some about what y'all found, but I'd love to see more. My last post on here showed what happened for us on our cursory check of the place.

  11. Our team leader Jason, is the one that took a pic in the back room of the bordello. You can clearly see a man standing there! He was wearing a suit & you can even see the white collar!! We are still reviewing our evp's. Oh, & isn't wild how you can see a woman's face in the wood? It probably is nothing, but its still cool to look at! -- Btw, I have some awesome news to share with ya. Our local cable access channel 13, will be airing our investigations!! We filmed our 1st episode at a location on Whiskey Row. I can't say to much about it now, but if you'd like I would love to post the link here when it starts airing. I'm super duper excited :-)

  12. When you saw Squatch, did you take a drink?
