Episode 56…Safety Harbor Isn’t Safe from Everything

There’s a shadowy figure who makes his way up a sacred mound every night to protect the land he loves. Or maybe it’s a famous Floridian who was related to Napoleon and brought grapefruit to the Sunshine State. Or maybe it’s one of the many spirits disturbed when the modern world bulldozed the burial mounds or a ghost from one of the mysteriously missing cemeteries. Or maybe it’s just Cecil.
 
The Trippers are making their way back into Pinellas County to Philippe Park in Safety Harbor to look into the legend of a land no storm can touch. In their first live tripping episode, Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist get into the folklore surrounding the location and the history of haunted mounds throughout the state and the country.

Tripping on Legends Live Looking for the Witch at Arbuckle Creek in Lorida, Florida

Love can move mountains, but can it also trap an odd triangle at the site of a hidden murder?

The Trippers follow the moon to Lorida, Florida, and hit Arbuckle Bridge to look for the ghost of a witch murdered for making a love potion and two spirits who may be with her as payment for the crime.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist talk about some of the odd steps they took before they got to the bridge and what happened when the sun went down, the protection circle was cast, and the two were left with nothing but a broken-down bridge between them and the ghostly legend.

Tripping on Legends Live…Ghostly Hysteria Part I

It really meant something at the time. But does it remain in the light of the day?

Some things become so clear when you’re out in the field. You see it or hear it and the tumblers fall and you’ve found the missing link. You’re excited and share and then comes the blank stare.

Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano spend some time Wednesday looking at some of the moments that they have shared where something happened and seemed important at the time, but when push comes to shove, you wonder whether you were making minnows into whales.
