While I was visiting my father, my wife and I decided to go on a ghost-hunting tour.
- There was an old prison in the local area that was said to be haunted.
We were told that it used to be an asylum for the criminally insane and most of the people had died there. I couldn’t believe that if it was truly haunted, they would allow tours, but people look for that. I was just happy to realize that there was air conditioning in the building. We were giving equipment to do recordings of the ghosts and we were down into the bowels of the building with just our equipment and our flashlights. The cool air was blowing from everywhere and it was a welcome relief from the outside heat. We got down a floor or two and I didn’t hear the air conditioning running and I asked one of the tour guides about it. He kind of smiled as he told me there wasn’t any air conditioning in the prison. This was natural cooling from the rock and the spirits. This really gave me the creeps and I was almost ready to leave. My wife was laughing and really enjoying herself as she picked up some sounds that were supposedly the sounds of ghosts. I didn’t care how hot it was outside; I was ready to get out of this non-air conditioned building and get away from here. I didn’t think I was going to be able to stay here much longer. I wanted what I knew was air conditioning and not a bunch of spirits.
