Halloween/Anniversary

Well it has come and gone. Halloween and our anniversary, hard to believe it's been a year all ready. Happy belated anniversary to Dave and Krista as well they have completed a couple years now.

Well Dott and I went to Portland for a few days over Halloween weekend. We had a fun time, we just need to go through our vast amount of photos. We stayed at the White Eagle Saloon which is reputed to be one of the most haunted hot spots in Oregon. Will have to go through or photos and video, as well as audio to see if we picked anything up. We both have the feeling that it was an overall bust on the haunting part, and there wasn't anything that really happened that we couldn't explain away through natural causes.

Dott had heard a female whimpering around 3 am one morning, that could have been a fellow traveler having a nightmare, or having sex. I will have to go over the voice recorder and see if I could pick anything out. Unfortunately being Halloween, we had every yahoo and dill weed tramping around so we were hindered in doing a serious investigation. There is a group up there called Spirit something or other. I talked to one of them, (they do tours and investigations) he had said that they picked up some thermal imaging, had spikes on their EMF detectors and caught the laughter of a small child they believed to be a boy. He wouldn't share any hard evidence so it was all anecdotal.

We had taken a tour of the Pittock mansion in Portland as well. Dott had gotten the feeling as if she was being watched by unseen eyes. I was in a room taking pictures, out of the corner of my eye I had seen someone that was an older man with a goatee or beard. I thought it was someone who wanted to walk through, so I lowered my camera said "oh excuse me" and looked over to let them know I would let them through and there was no one standing there. Unfortunately I didn't get him photographed, I believe I could have been visited by Mr. Pittock himself. Unfortunately I can't verify this account.

Dott was flabbergasted about the sheer enormity of Powell's bookstore. and what is even more flabbergasting, brace yourself, I had only purchased one book this time around. I know shocking isn't it. We had eaten what we believed to have been some bad food earlier so we spent a lot of time in the bathroom unfortunately.

We had gone to the zoo as well where we got to test out Dott's new camera. She got some awesome pictures on that thing including a Mandrill Baboon, one of the wolves, as well as some of the chimpanzees, and lions.

We had decided that if we were going to go back to the white eagle and investigate further, it would be during an off time of year, there was just too much insanity going on. I do admit they had some great live entertainment. My favorite band there was a blue grass group called Faster Rattler. I recorded a few of their songs. I am not a real big fan of blue grass, but they put on a good show, their music was well played, and I got to enjoy something different.

Well that's a rough synopsis of our trip, and once I get a chance to go through our pictures I will post some up here. Some regular ones and any of ghosts we may have picked up. Until then happy hunting.

Thanks James! And a belated happy birthday to you too. I can't wait to see the results you got, even if some of them were contaminated. It was a nice surprise running into you, we should meet up sometime for an official catch-up.
