EPISODE 61…GHOST KIDS AND THEIR PEEPERS

Which came first…the haunting or the horror movie?

Join Tripping on Legend as they look into a typical roadside ghost in Dunnellon, Florida, that may be as far from typical as you can get. On a stretch of road in the middle of nowhere, with the Ocala Forest looming nearby, there are reports of ghost children walking alone and into the woods. Are they just imagination, something darker like Black-Eyed Children, or the remains of the spookiness of a film shoot?

And what does any of this have to do with Suzie and the Banshees?

And are all the filming locations of the horror movie Jeepers Creepers haunted?

Is there something to the darkness of the Ocala National Forest? Listen to our Astor episode where we first start to think something is up.

Here’s our episode on The Woman in White, another movie connected to urban legends in Florida.

Episode 24…Help, There’s a Ouija Board in My House

After another odd, unexplained event in Natalie Crists’ house, her and Christopher Balzano decided to look into what might be going on.

The Trippers decide to take a break from the folklore of hauntings to introduce Natalie to the world of Ouija. The two discuss what’s been going on in the house and some of the traditional practices and folklore surrounding the spirit board.

Episode 58…Bundy, Books, and Bikinis

What do Tom Petty, and dead janitor, and Ted Bundy have to do with each other…and what about that ghost in the bikini?

With the summer quickly approaching, it is time to start looking at far, far away Florida locations to include in Tripping on Legends Summer 2019 Road Trip. There may be no better place to look than with institutes of higher learning across the Sunshine State, starting with the two biggies. Florida Schools are haunted. 

Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano take a look at some of the famous hauntings and urban legends coming out of Florida State University and the University of Florida, including ones involving love, suicide, lightening, Ted Bundy, and Tom Petty. 

The Trippers also discuss why the Tripper’s Ouija Board is no longer in service.

Get the whole history of the board…

Episode 59…Wandering Women and White Horses

Episode 59…Wander Women and White Horse

Phantom hitchhikers are nothing new to the world of the paranormal.  What makes Julia any different?

With the summer winding down and Florida’s Haunted Love Stories at the printer’s, Christopher Balzano explores two Central Florida legends that did not make the cut for the book.  The first involves a white horse seen in haunted Sanford, Florida, where celery might have once been king but now ghosts are big business.  The second is a lonely Woman in White in Lady Lake whose backstory can’t be nailed down, but not for lack of decades of trying.  As we get more into the mysterious happenings it becomes clear there are signs that point to a dark cloud that has been popping up on our legend trips being involved in another one of our locations.

For a little more background, and some of the oddest and creepiest voices we’ve ever heard on tape, listen to our Sanford Episode…

Episode 18…Whispers and Screams from Shiloh Episode

Here’s our episode on The Woman in White which connects in an odd way to the story in Lady Lake
