I have a feeling that I know where it is at, but when went to go check it out, nothing happened. I think it is further on down the road. Anyone else check this out before, or planning on it?
Also is there anyone else from around the Shelbyville area and looking for a couple people to go on ghost investigations with them? If so let me know. My brother, best friend and I are interested in this stuff.
I don't know where it's at, but you very likely could have gone to the right place. Although the list of haunted places says:
If you drive down the lane at Werewolf Hollow, there is a stop sign. Look close and you will see blood flowing on it. As you go on, there are cornfields. You can see a male ghost. Be careful not to stop your car because he will scratch your car. He is trying to warn you not to go on. There are some abandoned houses and if you get out of your car (if you dare) and go up to the houses, you can see a ghost in one window. In another window, you hear noises and a hole in it.
I doubt most or any of that stuff will happen. We have found out through our investigations that 95% of the time what it says on the list won't happen. Sometimes taking pictures helps. If you have a digital camera those are best becuase sometimes the camera can pick up things that the human eye can not see. Good luck with your ghost haunting around Shelbyville.
A friend and I are new to all of this. I have seen a ghost and witnessed some activity while living in Europe. My friend has had many experiences in this area. It would be cool to check out some places as a group. I have a quick question. What would be the first few items we should definitely have with us on our hunts?
There are a few items that you should defenently have. then there are some other items that you can get if you become more interested and experienced. the items that i would recommend you bring are a camera, digital is the best, but 35mm cameras work as well. if you are using a 35mm it is best to use 400 speed film. it is a little more expensive, but you will get better results. also when you get your film developed write that you would like all the pictures developed. some of the pictures turn out to be mostly black and they don't develop them for you.
we just take pictures all over the haunted place. if it a cemetery we normally walk around a little bit and observe the size and any interesting things about the cemetery before we take any pictures. then we just take pictures around the gravestones. only about 3% of our pictures will have anything in them. so you have to be patient. normally we spend about 30 minutes taking about 50-60 pictures.
the second thing would be a flashlight. most of ghost haunting is done during the night so this proves to be the most useful tool you can have. it is also helpful if you bring extra batteries just in case the ones you have go out.
other items that you can bring but aren't as important are a tape recorder, camcorder, and there are a bunch of fancy ghost haunting tools available, none of which we use or think is really that necassary.
i would recommend you just look at the list of haunted places in indiana and find a couple that sound interesting around your town. the hardest part is trying to find out the location of the places. we always have to take a while to search the internet and print out maps of each place. then just make a trip out one night and spend about 20-30 minutes at each place taking pictures and observing. if you have any other questions let us know.
