The Paranormal Road Trip Leaves Tomorrow!

Just a reminder that tomorrow morning, I’m leaving on a road trip from Buffalo, NY to Nashville, TN with Richard Wiseman, Jon Ronson, and intrepid cameraperson Adam Isaak! We’ll be stopping off at weird and interesting places, filming the entire thing, and sharing all the details at live events along the way and at our final stop: CSICon!

The best way to follow what’s happening is to actually show up at a live event! But if you can’t make one of them, then you can follow along by checking out @CSIRoadTrip on Twitter.

Tomorrow morning, Adam and I will be picking up Jon and Richard and heading out on the road, possibly after buying snacks. Road trip snacks are the best! One of our stops tomorrow will include meeting up with the famed and justly popular Joe Nickell for a tour of Lily Dale, the historic home of some of the world’s greatest “psychics!” I bet we’re going to get a ton of paranormal phenomena on film and finally shut up all those nasty skeptics.

Here’s our itinerary, more or less. Hope to see you at a live event!

  1. I’m driving from NYC to Nashville and probably going to a couple of these events.

    I was planning to visit the Creation Museum on my own on the 22nd, but now that you’ve added it to your itinerary on the 23rd, I’d like to go with the group. Have you finalized the time? I’m hoping it’s early because I’m scheduled to drive to Cave City later that day.

    1. Because of the filming and interviewing we’ll be doing, we’re not doing any group trips on the stops, unfortunately. We’ll definitely join everyone at the public events, though, and share our adventures!

      1. Oh sorry I didn’t see this before we made the trip down. I made the same assumption SidBB did. *embarrased* Sorry for the intrusion! I’ve just always wanted to tell you how much of an inspiration your are to me in person and your trip to Lilydale was just too perfect an opportunity to pass up sine we’d already planned a drive out that way for the day.

        I’m still going to hold you to coming to see us some Saturday at the Lounge though. =)

  2. Ah, okay. I thought everything on that itinerary was a group event open to everyone. Well, have fun! I’ll definitely show up at the Observatory event.
