The Stanley Is Calling

May 15, 2013 on 4:40 pm | In Article | 2 Comments


In April of 2012 I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Beyond Reality Stanley Hotel event in Estes Park, Colorado with Ellie Davis.  If you are a regular reader you are aware I work for the Sweetwater County Library which is reportedly haunted.  From time to time those of us that are hosts/tour guides for the Ghost Walks we hold are allowed to attend such events as a training tool.

Training tool? Yes, a training tool.  For those of us that are the tour guides for the local Ghost Walks, experts like those booked at the Stanley events can help us to better serve the public.  We take these opportunities to educate ourselves on the equipment and general knowledge of the paranormal.  Chip Coffee is one example.  By speaking with Chip I was able to better understand the psychic take on all things unexplained. With this information we are able to help with questions.  Many feel stuck and need help to try to understand what they are experiencing. Libraries are a great source for books and other materials that can help you with this.

After last year’s event several members of my family asked if I would be willing to revisit the Stanley Hotel event with them.  The trip was a lot of fun. I forgot how “interesting” adult males can be.  We all laughed and laughed.  I loved that they didn’t mind hanging out with their old mom or aunt.  Overall the long weekend was great.  The event was very interesting.

The celebrities that were presenting at the event were the following: From TAPS/Ghost Hunters Amy Bruni, Adam Berry, Britt Griffiths, Eric Lange from the television series LOST, Mike Brody Comedian,  Adam Blai Demonologist, John E. L. Tenney from Realm of the Weird, Chip Coffey Psychic Medium and is known for the television show Psychic Kids, Ben Hansen from Fact or Faked, and Bill Murphy from TAPS Magazine.

I have to say the presenters were all interesting but our favorite was John Tenney.  Wow, who knew!  He is one of the best public speakers I have ever listened to.  He was interesting and funny.  I wish I would have had more time to talk to him.  After his program I had the chance for a short visit but of course many others wanted a turn as well.  John Tenney is best known for his work in the paranormal and Realm of the Weird.  Check out his blog at  I hope you find his work as interesting as I do.

Estes Park, Colorado is a beautiful destination.  If you ever have the chance be sure to visit.  Not only is it the home of the Stanley Hotel is a quaint town with many “mom and pop” shops to choose from, Christmas shops are a special find.  We all need time out from our ghost hunting to shop.  J  The town provided wildlife such as elk, mountain goats and big horned sheep.  Yes right in town.  We did not see bears but they are in the area.  You will find many eateries of all types. For me Estes Park is a place I would love to spend more time in and I am sure I will.
