Hi all, long time since I've had a chance to come on!!!! Lot of catching up to do...

Big Ghost Hunter Fan and when I saw the preview of this week, I thought of you Ross, (by the way, congrats!). Previews look really good, seems like they may have caught alot, like they did at St. Augustine! Looking forward to it.

Watching now! Awesome. The one thing about Ghost Hunters is that it attracts more people to the places they have investigated. I'm glad they are doing this because it will bring more people to be interested in lighthouses and hopefully more to help the cause.

Good job Jeremey and Ross (you looked a little nervous!!)LOL

I got to see it at the 10pm central showing. It was enjoyable. I have never been inside the light, but one of these days, maybe I will. Jeremey and Ross it was nice to see the both of you in the interviews.

Thanks for all who watched, while there were some slight discrepancies in a few details, it was enjoyable to watch, and it's bringing some great PR to the group (maybe not entirely focused, but PR, nonetheless).

I was amazed that they fit BOTH of my chins on the screen. :)

Hey Ross, can you clue us in on the discrepancies? It was exciting to see.

By the way, tv puts at least 10lbs on you, that is true, I know first hand!!!! Don't worry, you looked fine!

Well as JD will tell you, he's not the "curator" of the lighthouse, that was slightly amusing. They also edited some of his comments to make something sound like it wasn't. I thought that some of the cast responses were downright silly, but, an opinion.

Nonetheless, it was good for the group!

I'm a little late in coming to this thread, sorry. One discrepancy is that I told them that a Coast Guard guy had seen a "figure" standing in front of the keeper's house that vanished when he approached, and they edited it so that it appeared I was saying that had happened at the powder magazine inside the fort. Not too big a deal, I guess.

I would have liked to have seen them follow up more on some things, like the "scream" heard inside the fort. Could it have been an animal, or possibly the siren at the Memorial Bridge a couple of miles away, which sounds when the bridge lifts?

Could the knocks heard inside the lighthouse have been the door rattling in the wind? I don't think so, but I wish they had explored the possibility.

The show was fun, and the Ghost Hunters crew and cast were great to work with. But I would really like to see a show that truly investigates these things in a thorough and scientific manner. Maybe that wouldn't be entertaining enough, I suppose.
