First Off, I gotta say, I've never been into ghosts and paranormal stuff before...ever. Now, lately, as I have a whole bunch of college buddies,
the stuff I do for fun has gotten crazier and crazier. IT all started when a friend was telling us about the abandoned sanitarium in Henryton, MD
which became a tuberculosis facility.(I went to school like 5 mi away from it and we never knew it was there then). So, we checked the place out, and
decided it was freakin awesome, and a lot of fun. So since then I've been doing "UE" (Urban Explorations) into all the abandoned yet relatively
safe places we can find.
Scariest thing I've seen: The Tunnel through the hill at night, alone on Halloween. @ Hell House in Old Elicott City MD. It was one of those
"college initiation things" that we stupid freshmen thought up at the time. no real reason for it, just fun. So I'm about halfway in, and I
start hearing things, thinking its just my idiot friends trying to creep me out, I keep going. From here on it gets kind of weird, because I don't
remember how exactly it all happened. But in the end, I know this: I stepped in something, NASTY. Must have been something that had died a while
ago, then I heard a child scream like 10 ft away, and I heard a laughing sound. (Before you go aha! his friends WERE playing with him!) I have to
say I ran out like a scaredy cat, and found that all my friends had been talking (and getting fined) by the police the entire time.
Now, I bet for you experienced people, that was nothing, I'm sorry, maybe it was just a laugh for you. (It still kind of... Kiiind of is for me.)
Other thing, this is when I've really started to look into paranormal stuff as a reality. A good friend of mine, and myself, checked out this
Half-abandoned (the other side of the street was still open) Asylum called Rosewood in Owings Mills, MD (once again I work like 2 mi away and never
knew it was there). Just like all the other trips the building is weird and cool of course. We get inside, looking around, decide to check out the
ampitheater that's on the top floor. We get up there, its cool, its sweet, I Thought I could get a laptop, and a battery powered projector up there
to watch movies (teehee, I'm still a big Geek). We turned around to leave and, I thought it was a trick of the light, but.. Its still really hard to
explain, when we shined our lights (we had 2 LED lights, a maglight, and a big ass spotlight I have) at the roof, there was something blocking the
light. Not like keeping the light from touching the roof, but like a blind spot.
So I'm starting to feel creeped, but the guy I'm with has been here like 100 times (literally, every day the past summer at night) and tells me to
try the maglight. I do, same thing, its like a hovering blind spot, when I shine the light at the roof/wall above the door, I can see the wall, but
it's like blurred, and moving. Trust me, we tried for like a total of one minute before we jetted out, but I did a few angles, all the lights, and
even threw a rock (hehe, yea we're weird like that). But it reminded me of smoke, that wasn't. I was scared #less when I got out of there, and
that was the last time I've tried UE for a while.
