Episode 17…Trips, Triangles, and North Carolina Folklore

Only two days from the beginning of the Tripping on Legends Summer Road Trip, Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano get more in depth with the first leg of the trip through Florida and into North Carolina to explore an area known as the Piedmonts.

The Trippers break down several of the potential places within the Piedmonts that are perfect for the Legend Project. After talking about Shiloh Cemetery in Sanford, Florida, they travel up 95 to North Carolina and the Biltmore Hotel in Greensboro. They then look at a phantom hitchhiker legend, the tale of the Little Red Man in Winston-Salem, the infamous Catsburg Ghost Train near Durham, and the Devil’s Trampling Ground.

You can look into some of the stories at North Carolina Ghost Stories.

19…Tripping Carolina in My Mind

On day two of the Tripping on Legends Road Trip, Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano hit the great state of North Carolina.

Over the next two days, the Trippers hit up three urban legends from the area known as The Piedmonts. First they look to discover what the true story is at the Devil’s Tramping Ground in Chatham County.

Something decides to kick something out of the Tramping Ground as the Tripper explore the surrounding area…the craziness starts 19 seconds in…

They then head to Durham to search for the headless trainman who walks the grounds near the old Catsburg Country Store.

They close out the marathon day hot on the trail of a white gowned ghost hitchhiker named Lydia. You can look into some of the stories at North Carolina Ghost Stories.

…and don’t forget their night in the haunted Biltmore Hotel
