When Ghosts Attack: Washoe Club Most Haunted Video

From the main street

The Washoe Club is one of the most haunted historic locations in “The West” aired on SyFy’s, ‘Ghost Hunters’ and Travel Channel’s, ‘Ghost Adventures’. The building has earned its place among the top haunted locations. View our spooky video with many ghosts!

A giant explosion from a man’s stored dynamite and other volatiles in an old apartment, along with his pet monkey, killed some ten people (back in the late 1800’s), including a family of three and  an eight year old girl; even a man on the street passed into the eternal realms as a mishap of timing to this event. The ghost of a drug abusing man whom committed suicide still lingers in dark corners and also the ghost of the beautiful blue lady, called Lena, whom is considered to have possibly died from falling down the spiral staircase or maybe even murdered! The whiny, whom I call Mr. Grumpy Pants, hates people. You hear him on our spirit-box growling at us to, “Leave!”. I picked up his anger and displeasure of our company as we explored the second-level prior to any vocal warning. He sent a spiritual attack on my teenage daughter (dizzy and sick-to-the-stomach) and my son, James, had his energy drained, but the angry spooks didn’t stop there!

I pick up on a negative energy in a room where I felt an invisible “keep out” sign. A woman yells at me, “Mark-keee”, which we heard with our ears. My young teenage children looked in shock, shouting at me, “Dad someone is pulling your pants!” as I talked into the camera lens in the hallway. In part of the video footage you can see something pulling on my trouser leg, although I am blissfully unaware of what was happening at the time. Voices through the spirit box warned us to “Leave” multiple times! I felt like many faces were staring at me as though I was interrupting their treasured poker game. One might miss assume that we were there to cause havoc. But quite the contrary, we were very respectful of those in spirit. We did not hear most of the words of “leave” and moved when we feel like some were angered.

Then there is the pervert male ghost who touches women. Well we captured his voice as he approached, Michelle, saying “woman” in a perverted voice.

The shrieking spectral cries live on; a crypt and a museum devoted to its deadly past. The crypt area served as an overflow morgue when the ground was too frozen to bury the bodies in winter. Considered to be one of the best haunted places in Western America, only the daring, brave, and stupid spend the night here. Bar man, Barry Fox, whom I interviewed, told me of two paranormal investigators who fled the crypt area. I assumed they had somehow antagonized the ghostly residents.

Our static-motion detecting specter camera’s audio picked up a “Get Out!” and three thumps (what it sounds like on the stairs). Here people get touched, poked, pulled, and pushed. Names get called here; I recorded my name being called several times in the past. Sometimes shadowy dark masses appear without warning. People have run screaming from this locale. Taunting ghosts here is not advisable.

After doing two separate ghost hunts here, I have not been disappointed. The spirits here are ‘active’ intelligences whom may call your name. They told me the name of their venue twice. I saw plenty of infrared light anomalies on camera here, as seen on TV shows.

I’m even visited by some of its friendly ghosts to this day as recorded in some of my recent ghost box sessions.

Restoration work is in progress. They conduct ghost tours and also overnight ghost hunts as seen in our youtube video.

Thanks to owner, Scott Burrell, and the wonderful staff there. We had a great time (and a few scares).

This is where we stayed and visited the haunted trailer where both staff and guests have had experiences.

One of the warning signs found at the boundary on Groom Lake Road

Area 51 security observing us from nearby

Area 51 security observing us from nearby

Area 51, United States Air Force facility, a famous not so secret base known also as Homey Airport and Groom Lake. Subject of dreams or nightmares or neither? Highly guarded without a wall or fence around its perimeter. Though patrolled regularly and watched with sophisticated intruder detection, video and listening devices.  Known for its testing of spy aircraft such as the U-2, A-12, SR-71 and Stealth technology. I take a trip to the dusty, bumpy Groom Lake Road leading to Area 51. Where I pull over and fly my quadcopter in restricted military airspace. I believe I am the first to do this as when I revisited after, I noticed their patrols extended beyond the base confines and there were more guard (cammo dude) patrols.

I take it as high as I can visually before it becomes a dot (orientation becomes difficult even with a bright LEDs). You will notice on video that it’s windy even on the ground and higher up worse! These were very perilous flying conditions and then the thought of radar picking up my drone and investigating us. We then go to the legal border surrounding Area 51 where security personnel actively perch in their positions ready to pounce as a warning to anyone that dares cross the line. Our mile long dust cloud we create is a dead giveaway. Also in my video you will see something to watch out for that could be very hazardous to your well being driving in that region and I’m not just talking about rattlesnakes in season. Holy cow what could I be talking about?

Rachel, Nevada is a tiny town in the arid wasteland of the Southern Nevada. It has a population of 54 as determined by the 2010 census. You best have a near full petrol tank when coming out here. We park and stay at the Little A’Le’Inn. We have joined Las Vegas UFO Hunters in this region a couple of times. Staff and guests report of sounds and disturbances in Trailer unit #2. Kindly one of the staff allows my family and I to run a ghost box session in here before the booked guests arrive. Even the TAPs road crew had an experience here. Apparently too recorded on camera.

We do a skywatch, E.V.P. and PSB7 shielded ghost box session under a cold, starry, stunning night. We were parked close to the highway in utter darkness with no one living around us. Sexuality and spirits. Well you don’t hear about this much. But you will find that not every need dies with the body. I advise listening with headphones to hear what the spooks have to say. Perhaps this is something extra to send chills down your spine. So now I hope I wet your digital appetite to see the video itself. This footage is real and not doctored in any way. No company tells me what I can or can’t put into my shows. There is plenty of fiction out there but that stops with me. The ghosts of Rachel are calling you!!! Don’t turn back now…

Close Encounter

Little A’Le’Inn (outside the front)

I put a lot of time into my videos and it means that I don’t get to put them out frequently as I would like to. Though I hope you appreciate the work that I put into them. For me if I don’t feel like it’s not worth the effort then I wont put in the hours. Content is king with me and “REAL” content. Honestly the real stuff is often stranger than the ideas Hollywood could come up with. Look at the Skinwalker Ranch case over in Northern Utah. I know some researchers who travel at great cost to themselves to experience some of the things for themselves. I had spoken to one of “The Fire in the Sky-Travis Walton case” logger witnesses who goes to Skinwalker Ranch area just to re-experience and capture ‘E.T.” kind of phenomenon.

There are many that will fake something to get attention, views and sales. This kind of marketing of crap gives the real stuff a black eye. For one it is harder to sift through and find the real stuff. For example type into youtube “ufo” and see how many hoaxer videos you find. Some make a living off the millions of views. Fake stuff sells though at the cost of losing all credibility to themselves. It is surprising to me. Though a subject that garners attention. Some are very easy to debunk and others it may be hard to tell if you aren’t a CGI, video or photographic professional (even then a challenge) and who has the time to spend to examine pixel by pixel? I have spent many hours and often alone with my infrared night scope pointed skyward in the hopes of capturing something interesting. For me the food service analogy that goes “when in doubt throw it out”. I can’t allow wishful thinking to influence my judgement. I have to have an open mind no matter where it takes me. What if there is no afterlife? I have to ask myself what then are these other generally unseen intelligences that know me and my name (including rare last name) that I have heard, seen and recorded. If they are real then are they ALL ‘demons’ as some religious people would put it? Do I have mental issues and am I hallucinating all this? Then it must be a mass hallucination or optical illusion that makes others have the same experience and leave physical marks. Tongue in cheek there. Can you tell?

This site is about all things paranormal and what I can capture to show you that there’s something else going on out there. I wish that I could have captured half the things I have seen on camera. Then again seeing is not necessarily believing is it? I know a parapsychologist who (generally very skeptical) placed an video clip on his facebook page about “Alien bodies” from the moon. When I looked at the footage aboard the so called spacecraft I noticed there was still gravity in a weightless environment. Later it was revealed a sculptor had made these fake alien bodies. He did a good job with the bodies I must admit. Sometimes even the best (with an open mind) can be fooled. As it is said “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof”. Though what is that exactly? A piece of metal made out of elements not on earth? Though when that kind of evidence comes forward it seems to disappear again never to be heard of again. Then we have radar tracks, ground impressions, trained observer witnesses, radiation burns and strange implants etc.

In this new video, my family and i take a trip to the bounds of Area 51. The famous not-so-secret military airbase where they test and develop prototype military planes. A former co-worker of mine told me how her husband had been hired to do work out there and said he was personally escorted under armed guard and even into the bathroom area. I fly my phantom one quadcopter (with mounted Gopo) up from Groom Lake road some 400 feet or so into the air into restricted airspace. Probably one of the first people to do this. I noticed after this r.c. flight that they stepped up their vehicle patrols right up to the highway 375. My daughter Shannon films the flight from the ground. It goes so high that it becomes hard to pilot visually and with the strong cross winds makes it very risky. We drive up to the bounds of the main entrance before the invisible red line of freedom and no freedom. See the so called “cammo dudes” vehicle watching us.

Next we go to the Little A’Le’Inn not far from here is a small desert town called Rachel. There is no other drinking hole for many miles. I learned about the ‘haunted trailer’ from another paranormal investigator in Vegas. Staff and guests a like have similar reports of voices and strange sounds. Even the TAPs production crew had witnessed a fold-up chair unfold itself as reported to me by staff. What did I or didn’t I capture there? Watch the video to find out. We also did skywatching by the highway and ran a ghostbox session. Also an evp session with no ghostbox. A nice location because there are not many radio station signals out there, few to no planes and no light pollution.

If anything with my videos I hope to inspire some of you to go out there and see what you can find. Just don’t be too shocked if you do.

_MG_2656Soon I will be posting a Sagean Shielded Spirit Box Session which we filmed out under the starlit sky near Nelson, Nevada where earlier I had a close encounter experience and also near where another investigator came close to being shoved to his demise by trouble making ghosts. We caught what sounds like an alien voice when I asked if any were in the area at the time. We were also told by many spirits to ‘Leave!” You will see beautiful aerials of the desert area and old gold mine town.

A small group of us from the original investigation nearly witnessed Jason (usually a solo investigator) getting pushed to his death after being lured up two levels within the mine through male voices via the ghostbox. Hear the ghostly hounds from beyond who’s owners abandoned them to a long death also. This documentary illustrates how dangerous paranormal investigating can be and even more so within the dusty blackness of the mines. Caution to any considering doing this to check that the property is not privately owned and safe enough to venture into (many in which are not). Also with the right safety gear. (Note all mines have an element of risk) The United States Labor Department has a mantra for would be explorers “Stay Out! Stay Alive!” I do echo what they say as person/s are injured or die each year from mine property accidents. You might find ghosts in the mines and perhaps some from more recent times just don’t become one yourself!
