Our Guest list for 2015...
Crossroads Ghost Society - Old Yoakum Hospital
Gary Clendennen, of Victoria Texas, has been a Paranormal Investigator for a few amazing years now! He started with the "Old Yoakum Hospital Group" when he and his partner Robie Lowery took it over. They brought in several more friends to complete their group...with Gary & Robie being the acting managers of the team. Their investigations have lead to some of the most haunting discoveries you are ever likely to see. The Yoakum hospital is a legend and Gary is fast becoming one himself.
Last March Gary decided to start up his own Paranormal Team. He gathered the best folks in the mid south and called them the "Crossroads Ghost Society", also located in Victoria! In addition to his team hunts, he is always around when the Old Yoakum Hospital Group holds monthly "Open House Events". He wants everyone to know that for a small donation, you can hunt all night at the hospital! They also lease out the hospital to visiting teams for a reasonable fee for up to 3 nights! Having two Ghost Teams and a Real Haunted Hospital makes Gary a happy man. In his own words: "Does it get any better!?"

When Dakota was 15 years old, he had a life changing moment in that he realized that not everyone had the gift that he and his family has.

He believes that honesty is the best policy and a little bit of edginess never hurt either. Each reading with Dakota is a truly unique experience. His readings are what he calls a “soul level” reading which helps the client understand what is going on in their life and what is going on around them, which in turn, will help them improve their own lives and personal enlightenment.

His strong cultural upbringing taught him many of the shamanistic ways of spiritualism and mysticism. "We are all on a journey," he says, "and we will all reach the same destination. It's how we travel the roads and interact with other travelers on this journey that matter."
Dodad "Free Spirit" Burton
There aren't many genuine good people left in the world. And when I say "good", I mean people who are so good you know they would drop what they are doing to help a friend....they would give their last dollar if it helped someone else eat...and they would never shy away from listening when a friend has a problem. People like that have broad shoulders...and nobody has broader, more friendly shoulders than Dodad Burton. His Native American roots have taught him that people are people, and it also imbued him with what his ancestors called "the gift". Dodad can see spirits and "entities". He is what the natives refer to as "a shield"...a protector. His conversations are fascinating and his intelligence is off the charts. Don't be fooled by his simple attire and disarming attitude...this man knows just how hard life can be on every level, including a spiritual one...and he is going to share some of that knowledge with us...to help us move on to the next level of awareness.
Dr. Sam Lamerson
Dr. Sam Lam bills himself as a psychological imposibilist. He has spoken all over the US, in Canada, Korea, and China. In this talk/exhibition, using only everyday objects that are carried in pockets and purses, he will, using psychology, intuition, and keen observation show you things that you did not think were possible. A spectator will separate cards with red in one pile and black in the other while the cards are face down. One spectator will inspect a business card, place the card and a small pencil under a simple man’s handkerchief, and will receive a written notice from beyond. A spectator will write five names down on business cards, four names of living and one name of a deceased person. The cards will be mixed, by the spectator, and she will be given a pendulum. Using nothing but the hanging pendulum, she will eliminate the live persons whom she has named and be left with only the card with the name of the person who has passed on. To close the show, you will see and experience something that you will never forget and never explain. This may prove to be one of the most exciting and memorable presentations of the convention.
(Founder of Paranormal Junkies)
Betty Moore is the founder of the awesome group of investigators known as The Paranormal Junkies. Her investigations have taken her all over the states. Some of her experiences are mind blowing. And she is just as friendly and approachable as you could ask for. We are very fortunate to have her aboard to lead the overnight hunt! Make sure you take the time to find her and chat for a minute at the event...it's more than worth the time!
Sunny is an amazing lady. She has spent her life delving into the mysteries of the unknown...specifically the mysteries of UFO's. She is not afraid to ask the questions that most shy away from. She is not afraid to believe there is more out there than we know. And she is defintely not afraid to show you the evidence she has collected over the years. Her facts and photos will blow you away. Be prepared to believe...we are not alone.
Jeff Stewart - Cryptozoologist
