The Perils of Summer Ghost Hunting
With last week’s high temperatures being well above 90, and throw in the heat index of 104-110, it is quite an undertaking to investigate in the summer time. Especially if your investigation, or the bulk of it, is to be outdoors. Or worse, your location is inside, but does not have air conditioning.
The obvious is to drink and have plenty of water on hand. Don’t forget the bug spray to ward off all our little winged friends. (Unscented is the way to go so as not to spoil any smells that may be attributed to a paranormal cause.) Beware the dive bombing bats, and then, there are the snakes!
Last but certainly not least, you have the physical strain on the body; profuse sweating, easier exhaustion, and the possibility of cramps, nausea or other heat related issues.
With no end in sight and another week of 90+ temperatures, be mindful of this, and try to hold those investigations in a modern, well insulated and air conditioned home….lol
