Location: Colonial Heights, VA
Site classification: Historic
Report #840 – Initial Post by Brad Bradley
Colonial Heights, VA 23834
This site requested that we perform a data collection project due to reports of shadow figures, sounds and uneasy feelings. A date of 9/21/19 was set for this project and a team was assembled.
5pm – Arrive at site and perform survey.
5:30pm – Setup static equipment.
6:30pm – Break for dinner.
7:30pm – Begin surveillance.
Because the building is relatively small, HQ will be in a tent in the lawn as far away from the building as we can get to reduce contamination.
DVR: We’ll be using Kenny’s DVR setup and will determine camera placement upon arrival.
Audio: We’ll be using a DR05 as a live monitor for this one and will determine other recorder placement upon arrival. Dataloggers: If anyone has purchased one of the EDI dataloggers, please bring it. I would also like to use Kenny’s PASCO as well as our Geiger counters. We’ll be determining placement of these upon arrival.
