It’s cold outside.

It’s VERY cold outside. Everyone is sick and it’s just too hard to do anything outside right now. I do have a lead on an indoor investigation but it could be a little while. In the meantime, please send me information about any place you would like to see investigated so I can start looking into it now and be prepared when the weather is a little better. As always, email me at tnhauntings@writersbeacon.com.

In the meantime, I am working on a second blog that deals with another aspect of my life. If you would like to know more about me or if you also have bipolar disorder, then please hop over to http://www.allaboutbipolar.com.

I am certainly not abandoning this blog, as it is my first love. I will definitely be adding everything I can here but right now it’s not possible for me to go out and investigate. I would still love to see your ghost photos and hear your stories. Hopefully, I will have some of my own to add soon because I am already missing the hunt. 🙂

Have I told you about the old train tracks in Mercer yet? Hmmmm…I will have to add that if anyone is interested.

Some of you may have already heard. Wild 100.7 from Corinth, MS did a live remote from Purdy last night. The crew talked to people riding the haunted hayride and toured the cemetery and Hurst House. The hayride will continue through Halloween and costs $5 per person. They start every night at 7 PM and continue until 9 PM.

I have heard lots of people report seeing things in photos or videos. If you have photos or videos from Purdy, we would love to see them. You can send them to tnhauntings@writersbeacon.com.

That said, I hope all of this is gone by 10 PM on Halloween night, else it ruins my plans. I prefer the area to be quiet. I think I am hoping for too much, though. I am looking in to alternative places to visit in case this area is still buzzing. If you have any suggestions, email me and let me know.

I would also like to remind everyone who will be visiting this area that Hurst House is private property and trespassers are not welcome. Be safe and have fun, and Happy Halloween!

Halloween Hauntings

Halloween is fast approaching and I am sure many of you will be out searching for spooks. I’d like to point out a few places to visit and a few to stay away from.

The Magnolia Manor in Bolivar, TN is well known for its ghost tours guided by the Mid-South Ghost Hunters of Memphis, TN. If you’re interested, visit:

Interest in the Hurst Mansion in Purdy, TN is increasing and so is the vandalism. I will warn you. Stay away! A couple was arrested just a few weeks ago for trespassing. I can guarantee you that this house will be well watched for the next few weeks and if you plan to visit, you will want to take along bail money. The owner is fed up and wants no one on this property.

DO NOT trespass on private property. Vandalism or littering is never acceptable at any place you visit. Even if the place is a mess when you arrive, it is not okay to add to it.

DO travel in pairs. Never go alone. Have a good time, be respectful of the places you visit, and bring a camera. Remember to send all your interesting photos to tnhauntings@writersbeacon.com!

I haven’t had time to do any “hunting” lately and I’ve really got a craving for some good ghost stories. Does anyone out there have any good ghost stories, haunted places or photos of ghosts? If so, please send them to me at tnhauntings@writersbeacon.com and I will post them here.

I know things have been slow on my blog, but things have been crazy busy here. Hopefully, I will be visiting a few new sites soon. It has been impossible to even try as hot as it has been. Thankfully, it is starting to cool off and this means I will be on the go more. I have a camping trip planned soon and will be in the Natchez Trace State Park area. If anyone knows of any good “haunts” nearby, let me know soon and I will visit them during my stay there.

About Gatlinburg

I visited most of the places along the ghost tour on my own. I took hundreds of photos and every single one came back clean. I did not see or hear anything that would make me believe there are any ghosts in this area. I also tried to recreate some of the photos found on the internet, such as the fountain with the mysterious fog. Again, all of them came back clean. I have no reason to believe there is any haunting in Gatlinburg, TN and every reason to believe the ghost tours are strictly a money making venture.

Reelfoot, anyone?

I am heading to Reelfoot over the weekend. Anyone have any places of interest in that area?
