We spent a week shooting in Virginia City, NV and Gold Hill summer 2002. We captured plenty of orbs and interesting interviews.   I returned to Virginia City in 2003 to help a friend working on a production she calls "Ghost's of Pipers" and she helped me with segments for Spooky Places."  I'm in her show and she's in ours.  Ghosts of Piper's is showing in Reno, NV and Palo Alto, CA on nonprofit cable.

Disclaimer / Warning and Good Advice

We of the Spooky Places team aren't here to entertain the general public, we are here to help people with paranormal problems and to answer questions.  We do not get paid for what we do.  We are not trying to attract a following like the paranormal shows do.

TV programs and movies have glorified the act of paranormal investigation making it look like a fun harmless activity.  Granted ghosts generally pose no threat to the living.  Many haunted locations are only inhabited or visited by ghosts.
A ghost is the spirit of one who was once a living human.  Other things however exist in the spirit world that can be harmful and even dangerous.  Not all hauntings are ghosts, some of those things were never human, they hate humans and can do a wide range of destructive things to humans when challenged.

It is disconcerting to hear someone say "We were doing something that was suppose to be fun and wondering if we were about to die."  Or "I couldn't breath, I felt as if something was choking me!"  "I came out of there with scratches and bruises all over me!"  "It was like something scratched me then poured bleach on the scratches, I was burning up."

Often haunted attractions are built inside haunted locations and while most of them are harmless some of them have dangerous entities in them.  Some of these locations will make you read and sign a type of contract that releases them from any legal implications in case someone on their tour gets hurt.  Anyone who enters the attraction must recognize they are doing so at their own risk.  The people who run these types of attractions are aware of those risks.

I tell people if you are not having problems with evil spirits then don't go looking for them. Don't try to attract them to your home by using things like the Ouija board that require spirits to interact through the living.  It's easy to call evil spirits to you but it's much harder to get rid of them.  There are spirits that I call by several names, sub-demon, gremlins, shadow entities, etc.  These are often misidentified as Poltergeists or noisy ghosts.  They are not ghosts at all they are evil entities that love conflict and feed on human fear.
