I very much enjoy the story you're telling here. I'm not trying to be rude or anything of the like. I'm merely saying that your story does not
check out without some sort of evidence to back it up.
With the amount of activity that's going on in your location, it would definately qualify as one of the most, if not The most haunted places
in history. I understand you may be a woman of meager means, but a small camera is not hard to come by these days. Cell Phones come with cameras.
I'm sure you have friends or family with digital cameras. A co-worker that you're close to must have a digital camera. I'm also fairly certain
that the hotel itself would have a camera on hand to aid in insurance claims in case there are any damages. You don't have to buy one. You don't
have to have money.
The same goes for a small voice recorder.
A video camera, ok, maybe a little bit out of range...but there are a lot of people that have them, and I'm sure if anyone knew what it would be for
they would be more than happy to loan it to you.
As for the story that the hotel owners don't want the word to get out in fear of losing business, but that story almost doesn't jive either. These
people are money makers...they're in it for the money. Don't you think the attention of having "The most haunted hotel in America" would bring in
a lot of extra business? Ghost hunting folk, psychics, the curious, etc. Can you imagine how much business would come in for the "ghosts", rather
than just getting some passer-by's and traveling sports teams? Not to mention, possible local, regional and national media attention...? Some may
not want that, but I can guarantee you that people who want to make money...they want that.
The frequency of this activity also makes me question things. To me, it's as if you're alone and bored at work in the early morning hours and are
fabricating a story to pass the time and pull the leg of these board denizens who you know will never question such a thing. I have never heard any
haunting that manifests itself as frequently as you claim. It really is like you're pulling the script from some Hollywood horror flick. Most
reported hauntings show themselves rarely. Yours seems to be nearly every night, and in a big way. It's suspicious. Very much so.
Do you have anything to prove to me? Absolutely not. You can completely disregard this post if you like. You have no reason to respond to it. I do
think it's a bit sad, and a lot gullible that many folks on this board will just take a story for what it is, without questioning one word.
I'm of the opinion that unless I can feel, touch, taste, smell or hear something...You better come with some good evidence that it's there.
I'm also of the opinion that if you're going to say something, whether speaking under oath, or typing on a message board, you better be able to back
up the things you say. When i see you posting on here with all of these grand claims, then see you post pictures of a Christmas tree with your blurry
thumb in the corner and try to pass it off as something that's worth investigating, or other random pictures of the hotel lobby...it doesn't make me
a believer. It makes me very suspicious. It makes me want to ask you "what's wrong with you?", or "who do you think you are?"
that you can take people on this "journey", knowing they will believe you because they're on here just as much as you and you've shared stories
before, but offer no real evidence that these things are happening.
I don't buy it. I don't think any reasonable person would. I'm far from closed minded, but I am realistic. What you're claiming just doesn't
strike me as realistic.
Again...Please feel free to prove me wrong. Or, don't.
