If you want to be creeped out, then the Sacramento region is certainly not the worst place to be.
Why's that, you say?
It's because the area has always owned serious cred when it comes to ghost sightings.
These have been well documented - from the haunted underground passages under downtown Sacramento to the bump-in-the-night gold rush towns of the Sierra.
Hunting ghosts down is the realm of Curtis Park resident Shannon McCabe and her ghost hunting partner Paul Dale Roberts, of Haunted and Paranormal Investigations.
McCabe and Roberts latest foray will entail a ghost scouting mission to Truckee. The hunting expedition will involve an overnight investigation at the Historic Truckee Hotel, a tour of the CB Whitehouse, and a ghost-sleuthing session at the local jail.
The scouting mission takes place on Sept. 19. The event is open to the public.
An evening séance with Bobby Marchesso, TV psychic for "Conversations with a Serial Killer", is also scheduled.
The Sacramento-based H.P.I. is now five years old and boasts more than 550 members. It holds monthly events for the novice and experienced paranormal investigator.
