Ghosts of Charleston, SC

My daughter who is 12 and I went to Charleston, South Carolina for a Book Club field trip last year. We did a two-day trip that was two states away from where we reside. We had taken tours of many historical areas of Charleston. And this included a Ghost Walk.

Below is a local-made video of different news reports of some of the more famously haunted sites of Charleston. This is NOT a video created by me. But I had been to a few of these places while there.

EVP… Can they talk from the other side?

I have always been fascinated by EVP’s, or their full name, Electronic Voice Phenomenon. Supposedly those that have passed on to the other side of the veil, which we call “death”, through use of energy and electronic devices, including digital recorders, the dead can communicate with the living.

In other words, you can ask questions of anyone or of specific persons that you wish and hope to contact that has died and is possibly still around within the earthly realm, and the dead can answer back.

There are different types of EVP. Class C, Class B, and the best of the all, Class A. Class A is the clearest of them all.

Here is a run down provided by North Missouri Paranormal Research Society

Class A:The voices are understood by all listen. The words are actually somewhat load and clear. Voices or sound that is universally accepted and undisputed, because it must be understood by anyone with normal hearing and without being told or prompted to what is being said or heard. It can be heard without the use of headphones

Class B:Voices cannot be deciphered clearly and tones are very low and hard to understand. This class ofvoice is more common and can be heard by most people after being told what to listen for. It is usually audible to experienced persons who have learned the skill of listening to EVP. It can sometimes be heard without the use of headphones.

Class C:Voices are extremely faint and almost completely incomprehensible (most common but unexceptionable). Sometimes indecipherable and unintelligible. It may have paranormal characteristics, such as a mechanical sound. Most investigators would apply objectivity and disregard it, but may save it for reference purposes.”

There are others in the classification. To see them, please click on the link above.

Here is a Class A EVP…

I’m a huge Ghost Adventures (Travel Channel) fan. Last night, the guys had helped a personal friend of their and his family. Mr. Galka and his wife lost their daughter, Melissa in 2004. They wanted confirmation that indeed she was still with them. Especially when there was a celebration. Namely her birthday, on Valentines Day. This year, she would have been 25 years old if she were alive today. She was killed in an accident when in her Senior year of High School.

Is this Melissa really communicating from the grave?

Here is part three of the GAC episode, where even more communication has happened.

Ghost Adventures team (Travel Channel) visits Virginia City, Nevada

My heart is in Nevada, even though I haven’t lived there in over a dozen years. I was born and raised in California, but now, to me, Carson City/Reno area of Nevada is “home”. Especially since a good chunk of my family is there.

The team of Ghost Adventures (Zak, Aaron and Nick) which airs on Travel Channel is one of my most favorite Paranormal TV series. And they are originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, where they founded the investigation team.

When visiting, and when I did live there in Carson City, I would take a trip to Virginia City, the famed town featured on the old hit show “Bonanza”. I’ve made my way to that old historic town countless times. And each time, it’s all new to me. I never get tired of walking through the town, in to the old buildings and learning a little more about it’s rich (and even somewhat dark) past.

Not to mention stopping through the old cemetery. Even during the day, for me at least, it’s alive. But not in the sense of having blood coursing through your veins. This “liveliness” has more of an ethereal feel to it. A certain vibe, if you will.

This coming Summer (2012), I am taking a long overdue trip back home, via Amtrak and taking my three kids with me. My husband will join us a few days later, coming in by plane, due to work schedule stuff. And yes, one of the stops that I will be sure to make while there, is over in Virginia City.

Including Bucket of Blood Saloon and the Old Washoe Club. And of course, the old cemetery.

To get myself revved up, I have decided to post a couple of videos from episodes of Ghost Adventures, where they… ventured to Virginia City to investigate. I do not own the videos, and am not endorsing Ghost Adventures, or am I endorsing Travel Channel. But I must say, seeing the guys walking through the town, stepping back in to history really excites me and gets me even more pumped to go back to my old…. haunts.
