Yesterday rather than sitting home, or going shopping or doing laundry, Alan and I decided to play tourist in our own backyard by hitting up the USS Hornet which is docked in Alameda. Before going, I didn't really know anything about the ship, but it turns out that it played major roles in the Pacific War, WWII, the Vietnam War and was the ship that picked up Apollo astronauts returning from the moon. It was a beautiful day out on the bay and our group had a couple of former military men as part of the tour so we had some additional insight and information on life in the Navy as discussed between those guests and the retired Navy docent. It also turns out that the Hornet might be haunted.
According to Wikipedia the Hornet is "said to be one of the most haunted warships in the American Navy, with numerous reports of supernatural events occurring on board. Hornet has been the subject of several television paranormal-related programs including MTV's Fear, and Beyond Investigation Magazine performed an instrumented investigation of large areas of the ship for Scariest Places On Earth. It was also investigated by the TAPS team on the Sci Fi Channel show Ghost Hunters." My friend Heather tells me that she saw the Ghost Hunters episode and some crazy stuff happened to them while they were on the ship. I'm happy to report I detected no trace of scary ass ghosts while visiting.
