What should you bring with you on the night of the tour?
Here are some suggestions...
Most of the people on our tours experience something. South Main Street
is very active – from a spectral perspective – and if we do experience a
manifestation, you may want to record it. Many go home with actual
documentation of spirit activity! Both film based and digital cameras
are capable of capturing this activity. Video cameras also work well,
but sometimes it can be too dark to record meaningful images.
A good “ghost hunter” is prepared for anything. There is of course, nothing to
fear, but an event can be quick, subtle or misinterpreted. The most
important piece of equipment that you can bring to these tours is an
Just approach this experience believing that anything is possible.
However, the best “equipment” that you can bring is your own eyes, ears
and other senses. As you know, the human brain has an astounding and
sometimes underestimated ability to process data. Pay attention. Expect
manifestations. Trust your senses and listen to what the ghosts are
trying to tell you.
Tape recorders often reveal
things that were missed the first time around. Turn your recorder on and
off as necessary. Otherwise you will simply record the voice of your
tour guide and perhaps a car going past on the street. Like a visual
snapshot, you may want to seek audio “snapshots,” short meaningful
recordings, to be analyzed later.
Thermometers, Infrared detectors and even Geiger counters have been used.
If you have these items, and know how to use them properly, please do so. St Charles Ghost Tours
continues to gather information and evidence of the activity on main street and we hope
that you will share your findings with us.
Any recordings, sightings or new information will help us to continue to improve these tours.
A notebook is always a good Idea, You may want to take notes,
perhaps make sketches or even drawings of the things we will experience.
Again, a large number of tour participants leave with documentation of ghostly activity.
Many people also bring flashlights. After all, it is dark, and the streets are sometimes a bit uneven.
