I have been on several investigations and ghost hunts. I got very sick for a long time and had to stop for a while. But it was my daughters 19th birthday and she moved to Salem Oregon last year and I went to visit her. So on 7/27/08 I took her on her first investigation to Damascus Old Pioneer Cemetery. We arrive some what early, I like to go at dead time (3am) but the b-day girl tired us out earlier in the day. It was a very clear night. No mist, no rain, no clouds and no one else but us. Grounds were checks extensively before the investigation. Then Orbs were amazing. I got no bad feelings at all. I felt pressents of energy, but like I said, nothing harmful. I have not had time to go through all the evps or all the night shot video but if any one is in the area on a clear night after midnight.... I recommend checking it out.
I just visited this place last night with my boyfriend. I am sorry to say that I did not pick up any evp because I didn't buy a mic for my recorder. lessoned learned. However, we did catch an orange orb/something else which was floating towards my boyfriend. Also, above one of the stones was an extremely large multi-colored orb that he caught on camera.
I will definitely go back to this place soon. No disappointments here.
