  1. Some pictures from yesterday's trek are posted - enjoy!
  2. We got home late so we will download pictures from the cameras in the morning, then upload a few more here. The first area we had planned to visit, though closed down for over 15 years, is still posted with very threatening signs, so we didn't tempt it! Our next stop was a mine which lasted until 1956, reopened in 1962, then shut down again in 1975. All that's left is concrete foundations and two water tanks. In spite of shooting into the sun, the mine's name can be read on the tanks. From there, we moved on to the next area we had checked out on Google Earth; a head frame and buildings which looked to be accessible - wrong! Completely fenced off, with roads blocked with berms of large rock and gravel. We had one last area to check and though the road had looked blocked on Google, we thought we could still get some decent photographs. Surprisingly, the barricades had been removed and we had access to the site. The head frame is completely intact and the winch house is accessible. The most fascinating thing about this mine it that it used flat, woven steel cables instead of the usual round cable. So much for a short post! Anyway... We will get some pictures up in the morning.
  3. Had fun, in Juab county! These are the two pictures I took. I didn't go near these buildings, got nauseated as soon as we pulled up. Not a good vibe there. More pictures to come. -Carrie
  4. We are headed out to Juab County to check a few old mining complexes - we'll post our results and photos when we return!
  5. What if the object is the last piece of history of that building? It should be put into a museum or something. My daughter and I wrote a essay on saving our history, and many buildings that we have visited and was tore down. I'll have to share is sometime.
  6. Over on the South of Great Salt Lake there is a rock called "Black Rock", it took a split second and they were at the top. It's at least 30 feet high. I really need to learn to let loose sometimes.
  7. We usually check the area out first, then if we fill its safe we take them. But then again, our kids would rather go to a ghost town than go to Lagoon. And yes, I agree with the electronics... Our daughter loves living in her room, so we try to get her out.
  8. I have a 11 year old and a 13 year old. They love going to Ghost Towns with us. But I worry about what they can get into.
  9. Schellbourne Station, near Ely, Nevada While the discussion of revealing locations for sites is on-going, this location really doesn't apply - it's right on Highway 93, just outside Ely Nevada. (I's kind of hard to miss - it's located across the street from a rest area!) We were there a year ago and surprisingly, there is very little vandalism. All of the doors are unlocked, the bathrooms are all still intact, and even the smoke detector batteries were chiming for a time change! Next time, we will post pictures of Cherry Creek, just a few miles from Schellbourne. Cherry Creek is what can be classed as semi-abandoned.
  10. Oh my gosh, that would have so funny. Did you get it on video? It would be fun to have a little Paranormal blooper section. What do you think about "Mediums" and etc.....?
  11. CPR class for all of the team is a great idea. We also have a person that is trained in first aide. We all go to her when we get hurt (since I'm pretty clumsy). We recently had a cadabra dog come with us on our last investigation to Mercur Cemetery. That was very interesting, she found graves we were unaware of. And of course we use the "buddy" system. We also have a couple that have their own band "Hearts of Steele", absolutely love them to death. They joined the team about 3 years ago. We've started initiating people after one year of being on the team. We got them pretty good a couple years ago. We took them to Mercur, and as we were unloading the equipment we hand the male a ax and handed her a stuffed duck. And then told them they had to cut the head off. Which she loves stuffed animals so it played out well. We try to keep it fun while being serious in what we do.
