Will I see a ghost?

Maybe. People experience the spirit world in different ways. A cold spot in the room. A sickly nauseous feeling. A push on the back when no one is there. Floating orbs. Foot steps in an empty house. An apparition. Why are the hairs on your neck standing up? We encourage you to take lots of photos and let your host know if you experience anything unusual.
