Boyer after hours: Halloween adventures at the Hex House. Also, I stubbed my toe in a cemetery.

I love ghost stories. In fact, I dedicated an Sunday enterprise piece to a few local ghost hunters and the business that could be brought to several in-need historic sites, if they only marketed themselves as “haunted.”

Got ghosts? Check out my story on a York County paranormal investigation team

Me, hanging out at an ‘engineering’ session with In the Midst of Ghosts earlier this year. Read about it here.

This was one of those parts of my job that don’t feel like work.

SNAPSHOT: An early morning hangout with some paranormal consultants

York Daily Record/Sunday News photographer Chris Dunn (You can check out her blog here.) took this photo of me hanging out with a group of paranormal consultants at the end of January. It was an early morning. Note the Dunkin Donuts coffee mug on the floor.

In Chris’ photo, I’m wearing 50-year-old headphones and listening to audio footage from a recent investigation in which I followed the group. We’re honing in on electronic voice phenomena — disembodied ghost voices caught on tape.

Keep a look out for the story!
