Adopt A Highway

May 2010 Antietam Paranormal Society signed up for Maryland State Highway Administration's Adopt-A-Highway Program! This is a way we can give back to the community and meet new people! Our "Highway" is Route 65 from Spielman Road to Taylors Landing Road (Fairplay to almost Sharpsburg). If you are headed out that way look for our signs!

How we do our Investigations!
 
-First step is contact! We like to ask general questions regarding the activity that the client(s) are experiencing. We usually do this via email or phone conversation.
 
-Second step is a interview/ walk through of the location. We have had several clients request this be done at the beginning of the actual investigation night. In some locations however this is not possible, especially if the location is large. (We need to plan certain locations because of any logistical concerns.) 
 
-Third step is research. Our Research team investigates the location from top to bottom! Historical, geographical, and anything else that may pertain! (This step in some cases will be done after the investigation to rule out any preconceived ideas of the location.)
 
-Forth step is the investigation! The set up of the location includes baselines of EMF and Temp to note any fluctuations that could prove naturally anomalous (drafts or increased EMF). Then we set up stationary cameras/ recorders in the appropriate locations to document evidence or validate claims of activity. During the investigation we will do EVP sessions (asking questions to obtain visual, audible, or non-audible responses), during these sessions we may also utilize manipulatory items (K2, ball, items that have importance to the location or activity) to get responses. We note personal experiences, monitor the cameras for any anomalies, and make note of anything of import that a client should be aware of. 
 
-Fifth step...REVIEW! We go over all of our audio recordings, video, and baselines for a final report!
 
-Last and final step is Client Review! We will go over all Personal Experiences, Documented Evidence, Baselines, and anything else of note that happened with our investigation.
