On April 21'st, I visited the Brookdale Lodge in Brookdale, California to attend a paranormal conference. While there, I took a number of photographs and recorded audio (still under analysis). While the photographs are not altogether rated as first-class evidence of hauntings, a couple of the images were odd. See the collection of seventeen photographs at:
I did have an unusual occurance of chasing an EMF field around the second level of the Brookdale in the conference room. The readings went from 0.4 to 0.6 consistently and moved around this room. After only a few minutes the meter suddenly went crazy, flashing all sorts of digits on the LCD readout and then suddenly returned to 0.0, indicating no field being measured. The meter has been reliable and not prone to these displays in the past.
I'm intrigued enough that I'll be going back to the Brookdale to try my hand at investigating one of the haunted rooms there.
The group I was with, HPI, was very nice and a real class act - Check the following link with a bunch of great videos from their YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=aliciap1214
I include some videos from other folks who have stayed there. Room 46 is supposed to be the most haunted. Check the video below - Click twice to launch the video on YouTube - these embedded videos won't play in the web page directly...
