Anyone aware of any ghost sightings on the Barton Highway?

By wally11 16 April 2009 40

Almost 1 year ago my husband and my daughter and myself left our home on the southside of Canberra at about 5am heading out for a roadtrip to Adelaide.

The weather was foggy and somewhere between Gold Creek and the big ranch with the long white fencing and roses, my husband and I witnessed what we both believed to be a ghostly figure of a man crossing the road in front of our car, he appeared to be wearing jeans and was aged around 50-60 yrs old.

It was definitely a man who appeared transparent and crossed quickly directly in front of our car, had it been a live person my husband and I both believe we would have hit him! We were both a bit freaked but not scared and felt a very calm feeling at the time.

Does anyone have any info relating to sightings of ghosts along this stretch of the highway ?

What’s Your opinion?

This is a strange thread. You have a posting by Wally 11 seemingly in good faith, followed by several narrow minded individuals ‘extracting the urine” and now its turned around to talk of a ghost hunting trip! Whatever your beliefs, few subjects on RA generate as much interest as the paranormal. (or is it normal?)

Me four – Thumper, I’m sick of waiting for this bloody book! You should turn it into a blog or some sort of newspaper serial – then you don’t need to write it all at once 🙂

Thumper, any chance of a “me too” on that offer?

Some guy at Ceroc the other night accused me of sucking his memory out. I thought that was kind of impressive and paranormal. He said, “You! It was you who I forgot all the moves with last time!”

Coincidence? I think not!

passing, Granny and I.

WTF? Random comma’s? I didn’t do that, I’m sure… it must have been the ghost in my PC.

Thumper – can I get an advance copy too? I lurve ghosty stuff.

BTW my wife used to run Collins Booksellers in the Mall for 17 years (i.e. when it was still a success – Collins not the mall) and may have some publishing contacts I can pass to you.

Oh, and when is the inaugural RA ghost hunting tour? We must be getting close now surely?

PS: sorry for seperating you from your partner in civic couple of weeks back I hope you found her!. I just thought I’d say ‘hi’ while you were passing, Granny and I.

Nyssa,

Not a chance. Contact JB for my email and I’ll send you what I’ve got. It’s not very good but it’s something 😉

Is that okay JB?
