Halloween – only a few days away!

Halloween already?! My, time flies here at Red Cloak Haunted History Tours! We’ve been having such fun… I mean, how can you beat the apparition of Grandpa, the ‘Spectre’, a ghost who slaps men on their backsides, the most haunted building in the state of Maine, and the spirit of a playful little boy?!?

In case you’ve been wanting to come on a lantern walk and haven’t made it yet, we do have some 5:00 and 9:00 tours in addition to the regular 7:00 ones. Our last night is October 30th. Check www.mysteriousdestinations.com for a special event on Saturday, October 29 – a Visit with Myrtle – a chance to participate in a ghost hunt of 2 buildings!

I’d really like to thank everyone who came on tours this year and gave us the opportunity to share our stories and the rich history of midcoast Maine. I’d also like to thank my associate ‘Ladies in Red Cloaks’ who worked very flexible hours these last months!

I’m looking forward to a winter full of research and maybe some new offerings next summer/fall! Don’t forget I am available off season by special request… I have some great school tours coming up in November! Check back now and then – you never know what random weird thing I’ll come up with to blog about!

Also, keep an eye on www.mysteriousdestinations.com for winter offerings as well as next summer and our November 2012 cruise!

Full Moon Explore Results

We had a great group join us on Saturday night’s Full Moon Midnight Explore at the Rufus Flye house in Damariscotta, Maine! We started with more than a light supper which included a choice of lobster roll or crab cakes among others, thanks to Salt Bay Cafe. After a short history of the building and paranormal happenings there, an explanation of devices that would be used during the evening, and the plan for exploration, the hunt began!

We split into 3 teams, each of which had an EMF detector, camera and flashlight. A K2 meter was used by one group, and we had 2 EVP recorders as well as an infared non-contact thermometer and 2 video cameras.

Several EVP sessions were done in different parts of the building, one which included a guest feeling something brush against her bare leg and stay there for approximately 3-4 minutes. The temperature surrounding her dropped about 3 degrees at that time!

In another area of the building there was some very active EMF activity. An EVP recording was taken there as well.

During a break for coffee and soda, we experimented with dowsing rods, trying to get the spirits to communicate with us that way. The evening wrapped up about 1:00 am.

Due to the large amount of data to be evaluated, we do not have results ready to post yet, but I wanted to give you a short idea of how the evening went.

Results will be posted on our new website www.mysteriousdestinations.com as soon as possible, please check back often. This new website is a sideline expansion of Red Cloak Haunted History Tours, and will be offering another Explore at the Rufus Flye House on October 15, as well as an Explore at the haunted Winter Street Center in Bath in September, 2 Halloween overnights and a cruise to the Western Caribbean in March! You will want to join us on all of these adventures for sure!

Another fantastic tour with the maine ghost hunter society! Last night’s tour in Damariscotta was warm, but we found a cold spot or 2! Once again, results will be posted on www.maineghosts.org once they’ve been evaluated. On this tour we were lucky enough to be able to go inside 3 buildings that have spirits, in one the emf device had some very high readings. Boothbay Harbor on September 10 will be the next place the Maine Ghost Hunter Society joins us. Call for reservations, 207-380-3806.
