Site Restored

This is the historical GRI site as it was in 2013 when the last updates occurred. I have restored this as a reference site only and it is in a "read-only" mode to allow for historical access to the body of work that GRI did throughout it's early years of operation.

The site will occasionally be updated, but this only to support it as a reference site and not to make it a truly "active" part of the GRI site.

General News

On Friday, July 26th, GRI will be doing an overnight investigation of the Gold Hill Hotel. We will be conducting on-scene investigations of the hotel both inside and externally near some of the old mining digs and have room for 4 or 5 investigators to join in. 

 This is an opportunity to join in at a classic and famous haunt site. GRI will treat the Spirits there on-site with respect and bring our traditional Whiskey offering in a shot-glass to honor those who have passed in the many mining accidents in the area and most specificially, in the 1850s accident at the Yellow Jacket mine which is mere feet away from where we will be staying.

 We've been away dealing with family illnesses and a death in the family. Things are looking up and we are looking forward to some new cases for late June and early July for our first cases in many moons!

We're starting with a focus on Sierra Nevada cases and are looking to do some investigations in Western Nevada too. Much more to come, but it is good to be back in the game!

The team is starting to come together and we are on Facebook talking about the new cases and getting folks together. If you want to reach us, visit our Facebook link!

2012 Mid-year Review

Articles The year has progressed quickly and what an eventful time we've had since our hunting season started in April. My father's passing delayed us for the first few months of the year and I've dedicated this years hunts to the memory of my father.

Approximately six years ago, I conducted my first investigation. It was at the Gold Hill Hotel in Virginia City and I caught a couple of EVPs and was so amazed by it all. What followed in 2007 and into 2008 was the establishment of what would become GRI. I've learned a lot, made plenty of mistakes and have caught some amazing evidence supporting the notion that we are running into some sort of unseen phenomena that has kept me as interested now, in 2012, as when I first began investigating.

The point of this writing now is to summarize some of what I've learned over these six years and to pause and to gauge where GRI should go next.

Let's start with EVPs. Our stock in-trade evidence capture for the last 5 1/2 years has been to focus completely on EVP as the point of our investigations. While other teams went after other phenomena, we caught thousands of EVPs. And we found a lot were explainable and that a lot were not. You may have noticed that we have a huge number of these recorded on the site. Note that we have many more in our archives.

Articles A re-analysis of this early case found several EVPs embedded with the camera audio. This is a great video and we re-cut it so that it is more polished and provides a sample of some of the thoughts as we go forward with investigations in the future with our video...

For my father...

My father recently passed away and I remembered the video we did with my mother and Spencer Hughes at our house. I'm now doing EVP work to get into contact with Dad and will be sharing the captures with everyone in the future.

For now, enjoy this classic video of my Dad. We miss you Pop - love you... Jon
