Topic: I'm going to The Stanley

Thought I would share something I think is kinda cool...

In a few weeks my wife and I are scheduled to spend four nights at The Stanley Hotel.  We reserved two nights in room 217, which is the room Stephen King stayed in and got the inspiration for The Shining.  We also reserved two nights in room 401, which reportedly has the most paranormal activity.

I'm sharing this here because I think HM one of the places people may appreciate this type of thing.  I am a believer in the paranormal, however, do not have expectations of experiencing anything like that there.  This is more for the experience, and going somewhere as notable as The Stanley.  I am looking forward to it.  I will post some pics.

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

oh my god! I want to go there sooo bad! have fun! and take lots of pics!

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

awsums.   be sure to bring an axe and a short temper!  smile

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

Thanks vengey and Deady. 

Deady - You've made mention about your paranormal beliefs in posts, though they were subtle remarks.  Curious what experiences you've had...not that I expect you to share.  smile

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

I actually went into detail about several before, I think.

any-boo, one of the strangest things I saw thankfully was seen by 2 other witnesses also.
We all watched a small formless mass the size of about a soccer ball move across our backyard and as it moved it increased in size and took the shape of a small hunchbacked looking figure.  that was freaky deaky!

heard things, smelled things (wolfie's ass doesn't count, I know what you're thinking), been awoken by a thing or two, and we once had a plastic human skull replica get pushed off the table by a spirit during a contact session.

still waiting to get raped by the spirit of a comely virgin who died before her chance to blossom, but so far no such luck  smile

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

Too cool, man.  Takes lots of pictures and share them with us or die.

Way cool, bro.  Make sure you take pics and/or video for us!  I'll lend you a monkey bodyguard to watch over you when you sleep.  May spooky things happen to you.  smile

I stayed in a haunted Hotel in Victoria, BC called the The Fairmont Empress.  It reminded me of The Shining.  Very Cool smile

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

We got here today after about an 18 hour trip.  That was a lot of driving.  Here are a few pics...my camera is really basic, and these aren't great pics.

Here is a pic I did with Swollen's book.  I am going to try a few different things, this was just an easy idea.

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

We got back this morning.  Long drive straight through again.  Had a great time.  Did the two nights in 401, and then moved to 217 for two nights.  No paranormal experiences to report.  We did do some EVP (yes, we're nerds), and used some other equipment (too easy Swollen).  Again, I didn't expect to experience anything paranormal, but wanted to try out some things.  The Stanley is beautiful.

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

Freakin' awesome pictures man!!! Now that's an awesome vacation!

Thanks for sharing.

Re: I'm going to The Stanley

Appreciate you sharing the pics!
