Ghosts: Disoriented

Readers, this is a personal experience which came to mind while I was preparing a different post about a haunted road.  I was once driving in the Sierra foothills of central California, on the way to a destination I’d never been previously, although I’d gone back and forth over the Donner pass nearby a great many times.  I have a pretty good sense of direction always – yet on this road trip, it vanished completely (I should add this was before everyone had navigation in cars!). I was completely, strangely disoriented, and even found myself back in the same place, having somehow circled. Don’t even ask, I still don’t get it. Hours later I reached the place I was supposed to be – which should have taken a fraction of the time spent.  After the fact I learned that there’s some lore about the area in which I was lost – that it’s a kind of trap, that people often lose their way there.  It was an increasingly eerie, creepy time.  Have you ever been to a place that seemed out of whack, out of place – like this or otherwise?  Feel free to share in comments!

Ghosts: The Eastland Hauntings

Readers, if you’re not from Chicago you won’t have heard about this one, but here is the story of the sinking of the Eastland:  “Of the estimated 2,500 passengers and crew members on board, 844 people lost their lives, including crew members and 22 entire families.”  As you may well imagine, this set off a series of hauntings, which have been featured on the television show Sightings among others.  As the bodies were taken to the building where Oprah Winfrey’s studio stood, ghostly experiences were reported by staff. Here is one of many excellent links which relate both the history and the ghost stories (you can drop down to the “ghosts” header in the article if you wish). Get the story here, from Imagine Spirit: The Eastland Hauntings
