    The Abandoned: Pennsylvania's Abandoned Turnpike and Sideling Tunnel

    The Abandoned: Pennsylvania's Abandoned Turnpike and Sideling Tunnel

    The Abandoned: Pennsylvania's Abandoned Turnpike and Sideling Tunnel may not be as deserted as people think. The old turnpike is on many people’s bucket lists to visit, although few have the guts to take this forsaken post-apocalyptic-looking road and follow it through an abandoned tunnel that is 1.3 miles long, pitch-black in some places, and just plain creepy. However, it is not enough that it appears isolated and friendless. There are things of the supernatural, too, that lurk here. Take a ride with me along this abandoned highway and maybe add it to your bucket list. Or come face to face with the supernatural within.

    That THING in Egypt Valley That Got Dug Up

    That THING in Egypt Valley That Got Dug Up

    Something peculiar lurks in a wild pocket of overgrown scrub meadows mixed with deep, young woodland in Belmont County, Ohio. It is just off Interstate 70, and those who pass along the highway usually sense that there is more to the gutted terrain than meets the eye, more than just the strip mine that flourished greedily on the land. It was as if when peeling back the flesh of the terrain, then gouging out the soul of the land, something wicked was freed from the bowels of the earth. Something long buried. Something that should never return. Something so dreadfully evil, it still walks as if the land beneath its feet is still quite dead. And it still thrives there . . .that thing in Egypt Valley that got dug up.

    Would You Visit This Park if you Knew it Had Bigfoot?

    Would You Visit This Park if you Knew it Had Bigfoot?

    People have been crossing paths with hairy bipedal creatures for centuries. Mostly described as human-like, over 7 feet, hairy, and foul-smelling. When conversations arise over the big hairy creature’s prime territory in the tri-state area of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, Salt Fork State Park is nearly always brought up. Located in eastern Ohio, the park has a whopping 17,229 acres for Bigfoot to inhabit. The Ohio Bigfoot Conference, led by Marc DeWerth, is held annually at Salt Fork State Park. This year, it is Saturday, April 30, 2022, where you can explore The Ohio Bigfoot Flea Market featuring over 40 vendors from all over the country with all kinds of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, cryptozoology, alien, U.F.O., Mothman, and other creature items. And you will see me with my books, including Monsters, Cryptids, and Mysterious Wild Beasts, and a new book on haunted Appalachian hiking trails.

    The Legend of the Bunny-Man

    The Legend of the Bunny-Man

    It always seems appropriate to feature some theme-based, folklore-related post for each holiday. Most are easy to come by like redeeming ghosts on Christmas Eve, dead, angry lovers on Valentine’s Day, and Halloween is a no-brainer because it celebrates every kind of ghost story, folktale, and urban legend. However, Easter has always eluded me, and over the years, I have managed to sidestep it completely. This time is different, though, because I discovered a most frightening legend, but with a little twist. Full disclosure—the tale would not have much to do with the Easter holiday if it were not for the mythical mammal involved mostly because it originated in October of 1970—This is The Legend of Bunny-Man of Fairfax County, Virginia.
