Welcome to Chuck's Paranormal Adventures. My name is Chuck, hence the title to my website!
Starting in October of 2010, I finally made the plunge into the world of exploring and investigating the world of the paranormal, in this case - Ghost Hunting! This website was started as a way of allowing my family and friends to keep up to date with my investigations. Of course that also means that other people with an interest in the paranormal will also stumble upon this site as well. I welcome everybody and hope that you find my site interesting!
The first question I am frequently asked is, why did I start Ghost Hunting?
My wife and I have been very big fans of the paranormal shows on cable TV, namely Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. Though I also enjoy watching shows like Paranormal State and Ghost Stories as well. We have been following the shows for years. When I had the available time, personally I would take time to check out the many different websites devoted to Ghost Hunting and Paranormal research, where I learned a great deal over time.
The idea to start Ghost Hunting was spawned after watching an episode of Ghost Adventures - Return to Bobby Mackey's Music World. At the end of the episode, Aaron makes a challenge to all skeptics out there that if they think this is all fake (what they do), then they should go out and try it themselves and see what happens! Now I was not a skeptic in the sense that I did not believe, but some of the others shows I have watched, had moments where it was hard to tell if the evidence being shown on the show was real, or was it staged in order to keep the viewers interested? So I decided to find out for myself.
I ordered some basic equipment (K-II EMF detector, IR Thermometer and a digital voice recorder) and I already had a digital camera. So I decided to check out a nearby public cemetery and see what I could find. On reviewing my evidence, I had 6 possible EVPs! Since then, it has been unbelievable the evidence and experiences I have personally collected. It is one thing to see the evidence presented on a TV show, it is quite another to experience it first hand!
I will be exploring local cemeteries and other areas of interest in the area (Central New Jersey) and I am not basing my investigations on whether or not these places have been already deemed to be "haunted" or not. If one cemetery has paranormal activity, does that mean they all do? Does age of the cemetery have anything to do with paranormal activity? Are the spirits that reside there, friendly? Angry? Scared?
What about the historical areas of Central New Jersey that date back to the Revolution? Is Monmouth Battlefield State Park a mini-version of Gettysburg? Are there American and British soldiers still wandering the fields fighting a battle from over 200 years ago?
Lots of questions to be answered, but for me going to a known hot spot such as Eastern State Penitentiary is not going to answer them for me. Not that I would pass up an opportunity to investigate such a place, but so many paranormal groups have already gone there, I would just add to the list of somebody who investigated there and found something. Not knowing what is there in advance adds a bit more suspense to the investigation!
Again, welcome to my site and I hope you enjoy your visit here!
