this weekend was fun.
jackie, ryan, dusty, and i broke into the (haunted) baker hotel that’s had many ghost sightings. pretty wierd stuff, i don’t believe in ghosts.
it was built in the twenties and it feels like the tower of terror. i love that kind of architecture. it closed down in the seventies, but was open to ghost tours up until last year. now it’s illegal.
we walked through a hole in a fence and walked around the pool into a basement ramp that went under the pool and into the bottom of the hotel. jackie had been here with a guide back when it was legal, so he knew what to do. we headed for the stairs to get to the top, but the door to the lobby floor was blocked by a table. so we went to the service elevator shaft where a boy was killed after outing a prostitution ring inside the hotel. i heard about people getting uneasy feelings from the “ghost” that roamed the hallways, but i never felt wierd. our new plan was to climb the bars in the service elevator to get to the lobby floor and pry open the doors, but we started hearing another group walking around the basement, so we turned off our lights (we bought special lenses for our flashlights, so they couldn’t be seen well through the windows- we took many precautions) we waited for about ten minutes for them to leave. i think they got freaked out and left because they never got to us and we were the only way up. we finally get into the lobby and we make our way up to the baker suite. it’s really cool. it’s full of elaborate wood designes and stone pillars. the owner had a bookshelf that had a trap door into his beer cabinet. it still smelled like alcohol. we walked into a bathroom where his mistress hanged herself; again no uneasy feeling. communists ghost hunters. we went up into the ballroom and bell tower, and to the place where a woman jumped off the balcony. it was a lot of fun.
oh well, i’ll tell you more later, that was a long entry. if you want to you can read this website, it really is cool. it’s got a lot of history. they have pictures too.
cool building though
i love jackie
