When we got back home we had Pizza Hut and we all dressed in our jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts. The guys packed knives and guns "just in case". Dustin, Justin, Brad, Jonathan, Scott, Melissa & I were heading for School 4. School 4 is a "haunted" school downtown. It's not exactly a tourist attraction, it's more of the lesser known parts of Jacksonville and not a place you want to visit if you get startled easily. Also, entering the school is considered trespassing and if you get caught you could spend the night in jail. That being said, here's our story.There was a big fire there and the school is all in shambles.
We went into one classroom that had a ton of school papers laid out on the ground.They papers were dated with dates ranging from the early 70's to 1983. With dates with that wide of range in one room I'm sure some of it had been planted there. It's considered taboo to take any of the papers found in the building. We walked away with about 20. Everything from a teacher's sign in sheet log to worksheets and book orders.
Lastly, Jonathan, Dustin and Justin went down into the "Principal's Hole" which is located in the Principal's office. It's about 2 feet wide and 3 feet long and from there you drop down into the basement. In the basement there are several rooms and as you continue through the hall the roof gets lower and lower in a very Wonkaesque way. We didn't see an ghosts but we did hear noises.
When we got home we blew these pictures up on the big screen. When seen on the television orbs can be found in almost every single picture. Most of them had at least 4 orbs in it, some had as many as 17.
