Waiting, Waiting, Waiting

Between weather, sickness, Christmas, and life in general, things have been in a state of waiting for some time, now.  But we’re not idle: We are interviewing a potential new member on the weekend, we’re researching new investigation sites and making plans to return to previously visited sites, and so much more.  We’ve been receiving a lot of emails from people, so we’ve been addressing those as best we can and answering everything from questions about what we do, to requests for our opinion on video and photo captures.  All in all, and in spite of having to wait for warmer weather and better outdoor conditions, we’ve been doing quite well.

On a personal note, since about the middle of December, we’ve had some infrequent but still unusual events occurring.  Movement we can’t explain in different areas of the house, seen out of the corners of our eyes; the sound of several people engaged in conversation, though no one else is present in the home, outside, or next door; the dog coming out of a sound sleep, barking at what seems like nothing; the sound of a cat in the hallway, though our cat is fast asleep on our bed; feeling pressure at the foot of the bed even though the dog is kenneled in another room, we’re already in bed, and the cat is curled up beside my shoulder, sleeping.  For the most part, we’ve just ignored these events, because they are not constant.  I haven’t written about them for the same reason.

But we don’t want anyone thinking that we’ve gone to dust, so I thought I would take a moment just to let everyone know how things are going and what’s happening.  In fact, we’re considering conducting a training investigation in my house to help introduce our new team members to the process, while providing them with a safe, secure environment.

This year is already looking wonderfully promising, and we’re very excited about the investigations we’re already planning. Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!

“When in Doubt…”

“…. throw it out.”  This is our philosophy on EVP and video anomalies we capture.  We review and analyze, and at the end of the day, if the capture is still in question, we don’t bother to share it.  Such is the case with the audio and video anomalies we captured at Mountain View Cemetery.  Audio has been determined to be questionable, as we aren’t sure whether we’re hearing a genuine EVP, or traffic.  Video has been determined to be questionable, because we were unable to recreate the conditions in which the anomaly was first captured.  All we can assume is that perhaps it may have been reflection.  Until such time as we have an opportunity to recreate the conditions, that is where we’re at for that scouting trip.

Audio recorded in my home on Oct. 18 is still being reviewed.  As was stated in a previous post, life has been happening, and it has demanded my attention.  However, things are moving forward again, allowing the review to be completed.  Any and all potential EVP captures will be first sent to the rest of the team for analysis before being shared here.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween, everyone.  Thanks for visiting!

Mountainview and Door-knock Updates

Hi, all.  Just wanted to update everyone on the results from our trip to Mountain View Cemetery, as well as the door-knock incident that took place in my home, recently.

Mountain View Cemetery

We have very carefully analyzed the video that Robyn shot, and we found something that seems to be anomalous.  We’re trying to organize a return visit as soon as possible, the intent being to recreate as closely as possible the conditions under which the anomaly was first captured, and see if it recurs.  Our audio equipment also caught potential EVPs.  However, we aren’t certain about those yet, either – which is also one of the reasons we’re trying to organize a return visit.  There are a number of things making odd sounds in the northwest section of the cemetery, so we need to examine them and compare them to the audio we’ve captured, before we present any findings.

Door Knock

I forgot to run the voice recorder the night the incident occurred.  So, I set it up the following night.  I am currently in the process of reviewing the audio.  So far,  there are some interesting sounds captured, and one possible EVP.  The voice recorder ran for 5 hours, 14 minutes.  The audio anomalies captured so far are within the first hour.  I am still reviewing and analyzing.  When the review and analysis has been completed, potential EVP clips will be sent to the other team members for analysis.  My voice recorder is very sensitive; from the living room, it can easily pick up my and my husband’s voices in our bedroom when the bedroom door is closed.  Having other team members review the clips will help determine whether I’m hearing myself and/or my husband, or a genuine EVP.

We sincerely appreciate your patience while we get these things sorted out.  It’s exciting for us when we have these types of situations arise, but it’s also important to us that we conduct thorough review of everything before we present it to the public.  So, thank you again for your ongoing understanding and support.
