"Someone blows their nose and you want to keep it?"

Guess where I'm staying for the next 5 night?! 

The same place I always stay at when I come to Pioche, NV for work.

But this time it's different.

Earlier today, while across the street from our hotel (The Overland Hotel) at a local cafe, my co-workers and I came across four people with "P.I.T.O.N." written on their sweatshirts. Piton? What is that?! Oh well. 

Back at our hotel we came across the Piton people again. This time I looked closely at their sweatshirts and saw what "P.I.T.O.N" stands for.

"Paranormal Investigation Team of Nevada"

That's right! Real life ghost hunters are staying at my hotel! Well, they were staying at our hotel. They finished their investigation last night. 

What did they find in their investigation? Let me tell you.

Bottom line: The hotel is haunted. Totally haunted. The ghost hunters spent last night in one of the rooms (one of the rooms I have stayed in!) in the hotel and they had an encounter. Apparently there is a young boy that haunts this hotel (and more specifically a certain room). They say he is nice... so no worries. There is also a hallway in the hotel that is a "hot spot". Most people who know about the hallway just avoid it because "strange things" happen there. Those ghost aren't as nice as the young boy that haunts one of the rooms. 

I knew it! I knew it from the moment I set foot in this hotel that it was haunted. The first time we stayed here I had to sleep in one of the haunted rooms (I know that now, I didn't know it then). I wouldn't even stay in the room by myself... I made my co-worker sleep with me so I didn't have to be alone. I didn't see anything though, but the feeling alone is enough to give you serious goosebumps. 

Don't worry, I'll be fine. Everything I need to know I learned from Ghostbusters.

Yikes, that's crazy! I scare so easy I don't think I would have gotten any sleep at all after seeing those investigators there.
I think it's kind of hilarious that there's a whole team of people that look into stuff like that. I wonder if having them there was good for business or bad for business at the hotel?
