We may have an indoor haunt for an upcoming tour!

Yup!  A gen-u-wine “open the door, walk on in and chit-chat with the bartender about the odd and unexplainable happenings that they’ve been experiencing over the years” Haunt Spot.

I had a great conversation with Mike today.  Not only is the building extremely old and has a rich, rich history, but there are a plethora of things that go bump in residence.  He’d be most happy for Caper Company Explorers to drop in any time.

I’m going to go check it out in person on Saturday.  Fingers are crossed.

Happy Haunts,

Susan Scot Fry

Cedarburg Haunts — Here I Come!

Tomorrow will epitomize the blend of my new life. I get to partially spend it with Ron as he visits 8 classrooms at Cedarburg High School as William Shakespeare and I get to check out some area Haunt Spots for tour research.

Today, I prep.

Putting together a big event like Brave New World is all consuming – especially during the final week. I miss Caper Company and am excited to be back into it.

I’ll stop at Founder’s Cemetery Park tomorrow and pay my respects. Part of those respects will include a distinct welcoming back of what feels like my former pursuits — creating Haunt Spots tours. Founder’s is one of those places that helped form the foundation for Caper Company and Haunt Spots tours.

So, where’s my ghost spreadsheet?

Happy Haunts,

Super Light for Spectral Detection

Confession — it’s all about the day.  Sunny day, everything is sharp.  Cloudy day, everything is movie-set atmospheric.  Either way, we win.

Another confession — It was this time of year when I got hooked on researching Wisconsin haunts.  Night time chill didn’t matter because we went out during the day.  The natural atmosphere of some of the places we explored was ramped up to the nth degree when combined with the look of bare trees or the dusky cloud cover.  Those impressions are such a part of my memory that when I re-visit a Haunt Spot later, I’m often surprised at the difference.  If a place has got it, it’s got it — but this time of year is special.

Be Brave and Happy Haunts,
