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.

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.

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.

Be sure to mark it for tomorrow morning - Karl Sup will be on the Fletcher Long "Long Version With Fletcher Long" show talking about Bigfoot.
Many of you have read his well-received series on here "Long Island Bigfoot" and the present one he's doing, "Chicago Bigfoot: ChiSquatch." His post on Bigfoot eyes (LINK) and witness reports (LINK)
Readers have been responding very positively to Karl's methods of research, his sharing of details and recording of evidence are remarkably real-time/real-life feeling, as he takes us on the journeys with him.
The show is at this link THE LONG VERSION WITH FLETCHER LONG at 10 am EST/9 am Central/7 am Pacific.
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.

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.
Our planet carries some pretty weird secrets and a lot of speculation revolving around the mysteries unsolved. Some of these wonders include spectacular lights, theories of a hollow earth, and a giant race underground. Let's look into some of these amazing concepts -

Take your hand and hold your jaw as if you're saying "hmmm" and thinking. Now, imagine another jaw that is so big it easily surroundings it.. Hold your fingers a couple inches away from you jaw. Now you're getting the picture. Take it further. Imagine an entire skull fits over your entire head like a water bucket. And that's just the inside size of their skull. Now, we're talking ancient giant size!

It's been a long time since I've done one in this series on GHT. I figured I'd give a shout out to all the single para geeks with a new installment concerning ideas for what to do on a date if you're dating another para-geek.
Chillbumps, Heebie Jeebies, Creepy Willies, whatever you called that scared mechanism as a kid, it effectively had our attention. How many of us pulled our toes back under the cover or a sheet over our heads when we felt we weren't alone at night?

"Jaws" is perhaps the quintessential summer horror fare. Anyone who watched it in the mid 70s when it came out knows what I mean when I say "we never look at the ocean the same." I personally run a 4th of July marathon of "Jaws" and eat homemade crab cake each year.

I take notes from speaking with many eyewitnesses who describe that Bigfoot hair among clans seems to be uniform. One habituator might report the ones on their property have Mohawk looking do's and another might tell of a Three Stooges' Moe bowl cut.
Some people with money and a vision feel compelled to set up a town in an ideal location where perhaps travelers could stop on long-distance drives. But, such was the case for the Bates Motel and when the new highway opened, they were nothing more than a forgotten side street. The town of Desert Center, California was born with a vision from one man, a dreamer in a desert that offered little hope.

Sherbet, sprite, blue-raspberry Kool Aid and white grape juice
We wait all winter for summer and then we curse it's arrival. Most of us love snow until after Christmas and then we just endure. But, here it is, the hot season again and time to dream of pale blue tones and floating blocks of ice. I'm going to share some ways to enjoy some "icy" themes for a "frozen" or "polar" party.

I am truly blessed to know some amazing creative minds and artists. In the case of this new coloring book by Joe Blevins "Atomic Weiner Dog and Friends: Coloring Book 1," I have a friend with unlimited creativity and talent.
This is the reporting by a Bigfoot researcher of an ongoing study in the Southern part of the United States in a very large park area near homes and urban setting.

What was once a mill town in Connecticut until the mid 1900s, Johnsonville was bought out by an eccentric very wealthy man. The town changed hands and yet remained empty the past 20 years. After many different entities owning it, it would seem to be the quintessential town no one wanted.

Most folks are uncomfortable with baby dolls. They are facsimiles of something that should be cute, but they come across as just sinister. Now, take the human-like form and make it life-sized and it can really make you look over your shoulder. Mannequins have had lots of uses, let's have a look at some and then look at some horror movies that captured their weird soulless imitative qualities.

(Zodiac Killer - still unsolved mystery)The 1970s gave us lots of serial killers to spark the slasher genre at the end of the decade into the 80s.

Abandoned buildings are amazing things to explore and photograph, but there is something quite tragic when one comes across abandoned mansions. The fall from grace is even further when one considers their once grand style. Let's take a look at some amazing finds -

I'm very lucky to work in a line of business that allows me to meet innovative business owners and a wide variety of some of the hardest-working people in America.
At TJ's Rig Iron, we are representing an innovative company that sells affordable solar kits and makes it super easy to transition. Their uses are many including power to gates at ranches, oil leases, agricultural, cabins, homes, businesses, and prepper homesteads.
As I know I have a wide variety of readers on here, I thought I'd share in case you're looking for solar power.

Horror movies really come down to three categories. We could push it and say suspense/thriller and SciFi can also be horror, but let’s just talk straight-out horror genre—found on the aisle at the video store. Take a look at your collection and see which type you seem to have the most of:
