Hiking At Camp Blanton

We spent the better part of a day hiking at Camp Blanton. We show you the famous Knobby Rock, and the labyrinth known as The Maze. By the end of the day we had logged almost 9 miles of trekking through this 100 year old forest.

Here is some info about Blanton Forest and Camp Blanton.
Blanton Forest is located on Pine Mountain in Harlan County and is the largest old growth forest known in Kentucky.

Blanton Forest is named in honor of former owners Grover and Oxie Blanton. The Blantons purchased the land in 1928 and passed it on to their daughters with the understanding that it would never be logged.

Here is our video of our hike.

This Murder and Trial was called the most sensational up to that point in Harlan County’s history. That’s saying a lot for a place that had been ground zero for the mine wars for the past 20 years. Violence was commonplace in Harlan County at the time.

Here is the podcast

Crypto Crew team member and Paranormal investigator Tony Felosi joins Dr. John Stamey, Devin Tait and guest host Robin McCray to discuss the story of Manzo Shepherd and the events that spawned one of the most infamous trials in Harlan County, Kentucky history.

Taking place on  Black Mountain at 4,145 feet (the tallest peak in Kentucky) in late April 1942, cab driver Joe Christian was brutally murdered by Shepherd and his two friends.

Within one month of the murder, Shepherd would be shot in a crowded courtroom of 300 people and his accomplices, Sherman Clouse and Howard Hensley, would both eventually get life sentences to avoid the death penalty.

BLACK MOUNTAIN'S HEADLESS ANNIE
by
Jennifer McDaniels

It was just a coon hunting trip. Some of my distant relatives (I prefer not to publicly say their names because what happened to them was bone-chilling and disturbing, not to mention they fear being scoffed) ......these distant relatives of mine decided to go coon hunting on Big Black Mountain one August night when the air was thick with humidity and ghostly mist. I was just a child in the mid 80's, and I remember sitting in the back of my Daddy's blue Chevy truck as my distant family (all men) were taking inventory of their equipment for the all-night excursion upon the state's highest peak.

They tried to talk my Daddy into joining them, and although he was an avid coon hunter himself, something just "didn't set right" with him. He told the men "I don't reckon I want to be up on that mountain in the middle of the night." Once they were satisfied they had all the equipment they needed, they piled in their truck and sped up KY 522 toward the Tri-Cities where Big Black Mountain towers over the old coal mining towns of Lynch and Benham, as well as Cumberland, which was more of a municipality for commerce.

I went on to bed that night, saying my prayers for the poor, defenseless coons (that's just the kind of child I was) and never gave the hunting trip another thought. In fact, it wasn't until months later that I overheard another family member relay to my mother the events of that horrific night experienced by my coon-hunting distant relatives upon Big Black Mountain.

Recently, The Crytpo Crew's Paranormal Lead investigator, Tony Felosi, conducted a short investigation at the old Harlan County Court house. The old court house has been the home of several murders and it has been a hotbed for paranormal activity.

During this investigation, Tony is trying out a two different ghost boxes. The entities seem to prefer one over the other, as numerous EVPs are captures. Also accompanying Tony on the investigation is Jennifer Williams. Jennifer is a seasoned investigator and understands how to frame questions and document evidence.

During the investigation a entity calling himself Joe provides some EVPs. But there are several others including what we think is a little girl.

Check out the video. 


This is final episode of My Crypto World for 2017!
In this episode I give you a brief rundown of what I've been doing, including some film projects, and then I give some thoughts about several topics that include: Proving Bigfoot, Scientific proof, and Youtube.
It's been a good year and I hope you enjoy this final episode.
Here is the episode.

I just wanted to make a quick post letting everyone know my latest film released today. It is titled
Imprisoned Spirits: In Search of the Unknown. It is a very historical look at some violent times in Harlan county Kentucky. A film that covers many dark events that is capped off with a paranormal investigation of the old haunted jail.  

Below is the full synopsis and official trailer:


Recently, Myself and Tony Felosi from Harlan County Paranormal conducted a investigation in Harlan County,  Kentucky.

It was on a special day and in a special place. It was the 75 anniversary of a unusual death at the courthouse. This entity has been pretty activity for Tony over the last several years. So, we went in hoping to catch some stuff, we were not disappointed.

Here is a short video of some of the investigation.


Team member Jason Morse finally got a chance to come to my home state of Kentucky and do a little bigfoot researching with me. Jason drove 15 hours of more to be here and spend a couple days in Kentucky. While he was here I took him into one of the areas where there has been known bigfoot activity. We were able to find some pretty good evidence, that I will share in an upcoming video in the next few days. Jason also attended the Bigfoot Seminar in Harlan County and told about his first bigfoot sighting.

While we were out hiking, I wanted to get his opinion of the mountains of Kentucky and the terrain.
Here is a video of his remarks while out.  


It was great to have Jason around for a couple days and I enjoyed out time researching. He was also a big help at the bigfoot seminar. Hopefully, he will get a chance to come back down from New Hampshire and we can search the mountains of Kentucky again. 


Thanks
~Tom~
