Five Extremely Creepy and Haunted Forests

Filed under: Camping,Places To Visit — Laura Moncur @ 8:39 am

In honor of Halloween, I found this video about haunted forests. The next time you’re thinking of camping, here are some suggestions for an particularly interesting excursion.

The Five Places are here:

Old House Woods, Matthews County, VA, USA

Cannoock Chase Woods, Staffordshire, UK

Dering Wood near Pluckley, Kent, UK

  • Wikipedia – Pluckley: Pluckley had an entry in the 1989 Guinness Book of Records for being “the most haunted village in Britain”, with 12 different ghosts reported.

Hoia Baciu Forest, Romania

Aokigahara Forest, Japan

After watching this, I think I’ll just go camping is in nice, brightly lit parking lot next to Walmart. How about you?

Most Haunted Campgrounds

Filed under: Camping,Places To Visit — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

This article from CampsitePhotos.com gives us a collection of the most haunted campgrounds in America.

I love that all of these campgrounds are in the States, so I can visit them with my own camper. In fact, they’re all in the west, so I could visit them all easily:

  • Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park / Northern California
  • Holcomb Valley Campground / Big Bear, California
  • Beaver Creek Campground / West Yellowstone, Montana
  • Crystal Lake Recreation Area – Crystal Lake Campground / Southern California
  • Silver Strand State Beach / Coronado Island – San Diego, California
  • Humboldt Redwoods State Park / Northern California

The next time you’re in the mood for a scare, why don’t you plan a trip to one of these campgrounds and spend the night. Even if there are no ghosts there, you’ll be guaranteed a night of a little extra vigilance.

The Same Couple and Car After Fifty Years

Filed under: Motorhomes and Campers — Laura Moncur @ 9:20 am

I love this photo I found on 9GAG.

The Same Couple and Car After Fifty Years from Starling Travel

They labeled it with the caption:

If you take care of things they will last.

But, they didn’t tell us anything about the couple, who they are or the true story behind them. I tried to do a little more research, but all I can find is people linking to the 9GAG site over and over. Who are they? Where did they come from? Are they still alive today?

I DID find THIS photo, which makes the 9GAG photo look as if they had cut out the camper.

Same couple, car and camper FAKED from Starling Travel

It’s pretty obvious that it’s a photoshop job, though, especially since the Airstream has a shine on it that doesn’t match the lighting in the top photo. This was the first photo that I saw of this couple and it amazed me that they would have BOTH the car and the camper. I would LOVE to hear that story, though.
