On June 22-25, Dennis and myself (L&D Paranormal Seekers) took a road trip to Eureka, NV for their 2017 initial paracon event. The drive was a long one especially since I worked that morning and drove after picking up Dennis at his home. We did hit a very quick rain burst near Pioche, NV which almost came out from nowhere but other than that one weather issue we had a quiet drive.
Adam Bogart, formerly of Sinister Sightings Paranormal team and now Eureka Paranormal, invited me to be a vendor for this event back in late 2016. I wasn't sure if I would make it there but offered to get the word out via Facebook on my page 'True Ghost Experiences in and around the Las Vegas Areas'. As the new year 2017 began the event started to take form and was on it's way to happening. Adam was in contact with me and somehow I managed to get the time off from work to attend..and now I am really glad I did make it here.
The town was established in 1864 from mining of lead and other ores. Originally founded by three families from italy, it now has 6th generations of family members residing and owning most of the businesses in town. A very long history with lots of stories to tell....especially of the paranormal sort. The towns folk all seem very open to the fact that the paranormal community was there to seek ghosts in their lovely town and welcomed us with open arms.
As the day went on...we decided to take the Ghost Walk tour in which Adam would take us to different locations which we were going to investigate in the evening and tell us of the activity and the possible spirits who haunt these locations. As we were in the Eureka Cafe I took some photos in the underground Tunnels which were said to have been constructed by the Chinese immigrant workers who also possibly worked the mines in Eureka. Back in the day, if you were a minority you were considered not a full employee or citizen...sad to say about Nevada's past history with immigrants. So the story is the Chinese helped construct these tunnels so they could freely access any of the neccessary businesses after curfew hours by utilizing these underground tunnel systems. As were taking looksee, I took one photo that has a strange image of a man in it. The entire photo looked odd to me as it was super brightly exposed. Adam and the current owner of the Eureka Cafe Rich McKay have said they believe this is Peter LaBorde, one of the former owners of the cafe and who died many years ago. The man looks as if he is wearing round rimmed eyeglasses and is weariing a suit jacket with a high collared white shirt underneath. I was blown away when I saw what I had captured!!! And pretty much everyone else who was there and saw this photo on my Nikon D3100 camera.
The next place we investigated was the Opera House down the street. The possible resident spirit was a man named "Mormon Joe". He was an employee who one night perished in a fire that engulfed the Opera House. The story is he fell asleep after making a campfire and the embers from the fire made contact with the opera house thus setting the building and unfortunately Joe on fire while he slept. In the basement we heard what could be described as banging of tables together but there were no others near the area where the sounds came from. We also went in to the kitchen room in the opera house and I caught what seems to be a dark mass figure at the end of the metal counters. Paul who is the gentleman in the photo with the dark mass was startled to see it. He said "it was close enough to touch him!"
All in all I believe the town of Eureka, NV will someday go down in history as being one of the most haunted locations for paranormal study and research. From paranormal teams, scientists or the weekend hobbyists.....you all should come out and take a looksee for yourselves.

Since taking part in paranormal events from Las Vegas to Virginia City I have noticed many others who try to communicate with spirits using devices such as a spirit box or Ovilus. Many of these devices are good for real time possible answers from the dead even though it's sometimes very inaudible or not easily understood as to what the spirit is trying to communicate to us. Being a sensitive however the use of such devices sometimes has hindered me in trying to fully comprehend what the passed soul is trying to convey to me. My 'quiet mind' will be totally still when the spirit box is turned on so I can attempt to understand what is being emoted from the radio sweeping. Many other sensitives that I know have also told me this happens when you start to use mechanical devices to communicate with the spirits.
My sensitive abilities are still there and good to go but for some of the events I have or spirit has put them at a pause....so I can fully experience the use of such ITC devices. I am believing that I needed to have such devices on my forever journey into the paranormal world so I can fully understand where all peoples' opinions are coming from. To only learn one facet (psychic) and to not leave the door open to other options (devices) is very small minded of me. This world is a many faceted plane involving many different aspects of spirit communication...and to close the door on one of those facets seems to make my journey less knowing. I really want to experience many when dealing with the paranormal and so here I am writing this blog. I am not sure exactly which road to take as far as communications. Do I continue using only the mechanical devices I have to communicate with the dead or do I stop and go with my intuitive and mediumship abilities? I have been wondering about this recently as I continue to go to the Pioneer Saloon for their lock down events. Am I slowly neglecting my sensitive abilities and eventually losing them totally because I rely so heavily on the spirit box, voice recorder and other devices for understanding the messages given to me? I don't want to lose any abilities but want to increase the ability.
I really don't know myself yet as to what I am going to do about this all. I may slow down in the use of the spirit box to see if my abilities have become stronger or is waning away. Hopefully they are not going to the wayside as I continue my psychic journey with devices in tow.
