Ghost Adventures – Washoe Club and Chollar Mine
For this episode the team heads back to the place where they did their first investigation and documentary. It’s also the site where they claim to have captured a full bodied apparition. It’s been five years and it seems the spirits are calling them back, literally.
Things start off with Mark and Debby (raccoon eyes) Constantino who have a slew of recordings which they feel are talking directly to Zak, Nick and Aaron. They claim the voices are saying Zak is coming back, they hate Nick and that the spirits are scared of them. The voices are all but daring the guys to step inside and investigate again.
As I always say, I hear something in those recordings but I’m not firmly convinced we’re hearing the same thing. The sounds I hear don’t really match the words they show. Sure, it would be neat to think you’re being called out by a spirit, but are you 100% positive that’s what you recorded? Difference of opinion I suppose.
The big evidence and reason for going is the full bodied apparition. They show it a few times and it does look like something is moving across the screen. It’s not definitive, but it is interesting.
The first part of the lockdown takes place in the Chollar mine where they almost asphyxiate themselves because they turned off the circulating air vent. And of course Aaron damn near knocks himself out as soon as he enters the mine by bashing his head into a support beam. The black widow spiders give him a bit of a scare as well. He was about to dig his own escape tunnel!
Out comes the voice box and it supposedly records the words "Frank", "stair" and "fell through". Interesting choice of words based on their location, but is there really anything to it? Other than being light headed that’s about all they captured in the mine. They got some random sounds which they feel is the sound of miners still working. Hard to say where those noises are coming from. Could be water dripping, could be wood creaking, could be other settling type noises.
Next up is the Silver Queen where they captured their apparition. They get some phantom smells which might as easily be coming from the wood of the place; odors do linger. With recorders going they claim to get dozens of EVPs. They even bring Mark and Debby back in for an hour to help grab some more spirit voices. Once again, it does sound like there are noises on the recorder, but it’s hard to agree with their interpretation. I don’t hear fully articulated words. They certainly feel it’s a full conversation, but it doesn’t sound like too much to me.
They capture what they say is another apparition. There does appear to be movement on the screen, but it’s not real clear or definitive. It’s certainly not as clearly defined as their original recording. Trick of light? Camera focusing in an usual way? Or is something really moving?
For all the name calling and the spirits calling Zak and Nick out, I don’t really think a whole lot happened. They feel they have dozens of recordings of the spirits and another apparition moving about the place. Something was captured, but what that really is, who knows. I was more amused to see their fashion sense of 5 years ago.
