Never been there Ampbreia...but please post the results of your ghost hunt...and good luck in scaring something up!
I've had some ghostly encounters at Fort Casey as have my daughter, my mother, & some friends from Victoria, BC. My friends even got a picture. Follow this link for picture and stories: http://www.ampbreia.com/ampbreia2_072.htm. We're going on a ghost hunt at fort Casey, Fort Worden, & Ebey Landing come Labor Day weekend.
What I'd like to know is has anyone else on the forum here had any odd experiences at any of these places?
Did you read the "True Ghost Stories" I posted under the ghost orb photo? My friend's story is the first one; mine is the last. But yes, we will certainly report back if we find anything this time.
I look forward to the results! I'll check into your site as well. I do wish that more people, especially those skeptical of paranormal phenomena, would get out and do investigating...for themselves...also, it would benefit the study of the phenomena overall if more people participated. I issued a challenge here once...for people to do so...only one person accepted but, I'm happy to say, that he was pleased with what he found.
We didn't really find anything. In fact, I couldn't find the two places where I'd felt the presences back when I was a teenager. But we met up there with some people who had an experience there a month ago - top listed of the ghost stories on my website. They showed us where they'd had their experience and we hiked in at night and settled in for a couple of hours within the dark bunker with only our flashlights for light. We found a very cute little bat that was very annoyed with us for the flashlights. I had my EMF meter handy and it did unexpectedly beep in a few areas, but it was neither prolonged or predictable about it. One of the women found a very warm spot several inches out from a corner and that spot moved from time to time though couldn't be felt on the actual surface of the wall. We all felt it. This was one spot where my EMF meter beeped most often.
Something about the bunker. It was underground and built of cement. It also had the beginnings of stallactites and stalagmalites just like you would find in a natural limestone cave. There is a certain significance in this. Limestone caves, for centuries, have been used by shaman, seers, and other spirit questors as a place to receive visions. It's also a warm place to go when it's cold outside because, even barring wind chill factor, these caves average about 10 degrees F warmer than outside. Cement is largely composed of limestone. When water runs through limestone sufficient to create stallactites and stalagmalites, it creates a low level radiation that may, in fact, create a mind-set appropriate to visions. It's said, too that this radiation is sufficient for ghosts to use for their manifestations. They take in this radiation and give off EMF. I'm no expert on this though. These are just bits and pieces I've gleaned from my reading. Anyway, it could explain the warmth we found in that one corner.
It is also of note that residual hauntings tend to take place where there's a lot of limestone. It acts almost as a recording device of past events and emotions.
I must not be receptive any longer. I didn't see or feel anything I'd confidently call a ghost. I did have fun exploring all the ruins though and taking a ton of pictures, which I'll soon be posting at http://www.ampbreia.photosite.com. I'm having a little problem with the software just now, but I WILL conquer it soon!
Ampbreia...your informative posts are refreshing! I've never heard that about limestone and I'm fairly learned in this subject...its delightful to learn something new Post more on your thoughts concerning limestone when you get the chance please.
