Just a quick note (I promise there will be a more detailed write up)
Well Fort Mifflin was amazing at night. If you’ve never been there, it’s pretty amazing during the day but at night it takes on a whole new perspective. Going into those Casemates at night can be a daunting experience.
For those who know me, my arachnophobia was trying to stop me from charging in (and you thought I’d be afraid of the ghosts – they were the least of my worries) but in the end I conquered it and entered all the areas. (Ok so I refused to get close to the iron fence but technically that wasn’t part of the investigation. Brrrrrrrrr there were too many spiders hanging out there for me to get close.)
My favorite area had to be Casemate 11 in spite of the close quarters. It was just a creepy place. Hard to believe they used it as a solitary confinement area. It was small, tight and very unpleasant if you were to be imprisoned. Thankfully we could come and go at will.
I’m in the process of reviewing our audio, video and pictures. I should have something up by next week. I’ve already started writing up our report and my experience. Bev and Kelly will hopefully share their experiences as well.
Many thanks to Mary G and Steve S for a well planned and amazing event. Also a personal thanks to all the paranormal investigators that shared the night with us. It was great meeting you all and perhaps we’ll have the opportunity to join again in the future.
A special thanks to Frank for taking the time to show me his full spectrum camera setup. It’s convinced me that full spectrum is not out of my budget while I save for that elusive thermal imaging equipment.
More to follow…
Fort Mifflin Notes:
How cool to have the entire fort to ourselves, a small group of 20 like minded individuals pursuing validation of the paranormal! We met alot of fabulous people, each bringing their own special abilities. I had a couple of personal experiences during the evening. The first occurring during the tour. We were in the Powder room listening to the tour guide when I starting seeing a silhouette/shadow of a head and torso emerging from the back wall and then slowing fading back into the brick. At first I thought it was my eyes playing tricks or I was matrixing, but then it repeated three additional times in different locations. Second was in casemate 11. I was standing in the first compartment when you first enter the chamber. The rest of the group was in the farthest chamber. Then I started to feel a cold spot on my left elbow and every hair on my body was standing on end. Steve came over and as soon as he stood next to me he felt the same thing at which point I felt a touch, almost like a stroke of a finger run up the side of my neck.
