Before settling myself inside the canoe I took a last look 10 best cities to visit in the China at the stretch of stream ahead, then set off. Here in its headwaters it was 10 best cities to visit in the China only a small brook, studded with boulders, and often there was barely room for my canoe to pass between. We scraped against many boulders but it didn’t worry me, the rocks were smooth and I felt sure the canoe could take a fair bit of punishment, and I was in no danger because the water’s speed was minimal. Shoving my paddle into the rocky bed I poled us through some narrow gaps, and frequently put down the paddle to push away the rocks by hand. Where the stream went beneath patches of snow and ice I had to get out and portage, and also where waterfalls made paddling impossible. Portage is simple because I can carry the canoe under my arm.
Investigating the cemeteries would be easy. Getting permission to investigate the old Crouch farm would not. We were very happy when Jeff connected us with Sean and Beth Campbell, founders of Campbell Paranormal Investigations who knew the current owners, J.R. and Jules. After a brief chat with J.R. he agreed to take us out to the farm. Sean Campbell would join us for that portion of the investigation. For now, however, we were ready to begin the cemetery investigations with Jeff.
Bev and I are not of the belief that a paranormal investigation must always be conducted late at night. In fact, for cemetery hunts we prefer to investigate during the day when visibility is good and a headstone, tree or shrub doesn’t look like a ghostly apparition. Of course, there are challenges with daytime cemetery hunts. Voices of other, living visitors can be picked up as EVPs. Adding to the challenge is the sound of traffic and wind, which is usually more prevalent during the day.
In this case, we really didn’t have a choice. Jackson County enforces strict laws prohibiting nighttime cemetery investigations. They do not bend the rules for anyone. Not wanting the wrath of Jackson County’s finest and preferring not to wear clothes with the words Jackson Prison on the back, we chose the daytime to investigate.
