I have just been reading about a very strange story. It was covered by george knapp, who people might know on here.

Skinwalker Ranch  is a piece of property located in Utah's Uinta mountains. The
Skinwalker is an evil force - a Shaman with supernatural shapeshifting
powers that uses the ranch as a path of sorts. Local Native
Americans warn to stay away.  But that's not the only paranormal
activity in the area.  There's UFO activity, ghosts, bigfoot
sightings, floating blue orbs, half human-half animal creatures,
portals of light opening for unknown animals to step through them - the
list goes onů
Skinwalker Ranch,
from all reports, is a paranormal enthusiast's dream come true.
Almost any kind of unearthly experience you can imagine has happened
there. The Skinwalker the ranch is named for is a Shaman with a
supernatural power to shapeshift. These Shaman are
said to be given these powers only after killing a loved one or
relative. Natives Americans in the area warn to stay away,
because the ranch is somehow in the skinwalker's path. The
ranch's spine-shivering history started (or at least was first
publicised) in 1995, when the family who owned it put it on the
market.  

They'd just moved in the year before,
and during their 20 month tenancy, they had several horrific
experiences that motivated a move out. Those experiences included
shadowy figures, objects moving on their own, and ghastly voices from
who-knows where.

Lucky for the family, when they wanted out, NIDS (National
Institute for Discovery Science) wanted in. NIDS is a Las Vegas
based, non-government owned X-Files research team of sorts. Part
of their mission statement is as follows:

"The National Institute for
Discovery Science (NIDS) is a privately funded science institute
engaged in research of aerial phenomena, animal mutilations, and other
related anomalous phenomena."

It's easy to see why a group like that would want to move into
Skinwalker Ranch. When they did acquire it, they went to work
fast. Video cameras were installed throughout the property,
observation posts were built, and it was staffed with scientists and
former lawmen around the clock. It is one of the biggest
paranormal research endeavors in man's short history, and not without
merit. Dr. Colm Kelleher, who is in the know on the ranch project,
said:

"We probably have, if you count all the pre-NIDS and post-NIDS
incidents, close to 100 different incidents. If you look at all of
them, the one thing that jumps out is how unreproducible they are."

Some of the sightings that have been reported include UFO
sightings (by about half the locals have seen them), cattle mutilation,
bigfoot sightings, poltergeists, teleportation of unspecified objects
or beings, 'sea' serpents in a nearby lake, blurry stealth creatures
(like in the predator movies), a large hyena, glowing blue orbs (that
disintegrated three attacking dogs into a grey sludge), masonic symbols
carved in unreachable places, and of course - skinwalkers.  This
list is only partial.
The story was broke by George Knapp, a
reporter for the Las Vegas Mercury. He was allowed access to the
ranch for a two part article he wrote on the subject. For a more
in-depth look at the happenings on the ranch, you can get the book he
wrote on the matter. It was co-authored with NIDS investigator
Colm Kelleher, and is entitled Hunt For The Skinwalker.

And if you're just now scheduling your first vacation there,
forget it. Visitors are not allowed. Plus, everything has
gone quiet.  Some say it's because the phenomena grew tired of
being hunted, and that's a shame.



Very interesting. Just wanted to know if anyone else knows anything about it

I haven't read the book but I am familiar with the whole story.
Too bad it has gone quiet and research stopped around 2003.

Yeah thats the downside to the whole thing. Its been quiet for a while now. I dont know if the scientist team are still there. When the family was living there so much was happening. It really sound to me that the place was some gateway to something not of this dimention. It was not just ufo, being sighted. Strange creartures, noises, lights, voices, you name it, it was happening. When the scientist were there it did go quiet, but stuff was still happening. I would love to read the book. Damn!!!!! why cant i live in a place like that lol  grin2.gif

Hello,

I've been lurking around this forum for about a year now, but have never really had any reason to post. Sure, I've gotten really irritated about some of the incessant and idiotic blathering by a few of the people who think that they know about the military and seemingly attribute every single paranormal occurance to good ole Uncle Sam.  There is, however,  really no reason for me to come on here and rebuke them for being so uninformed, especially when, in the event that I do provide them with contradictory data,  I would definitely either be branded a liar or a fool, in addition to compromising a TS-Comp security clearance, which generally has a tendency to be frowned upon......even after you have completed your active duty service. I can tell you that I was a 1T271 TSgt in the USAF, stationed at Pope AFB and attached to 3rd Special Forces Grp and a JSOC-DELTA unit through the 24th STS. I spent almost 8 years on active duty and have been out for a few years now.

Anyhow, I just finished this book recently and finally decided that I would post a comment. It was a very nice read, indeed. That is, IF you go into it with an open mind, which I always attempt to do. There were many strange, but seemingly interrelated events taking place at this ranch. Like someone said previously, many people think that there is some sort of interdimensional rift that is the cause of the strange occurances. Others continue to think that everything can be attributed to secret military projects. However, even being privy to much more knowledge and technology than the average military member, I still don't believe that the military has the capability or desire to pull off some of these events.

The book also mentions a few other places around the world where a similar cachophony of paranormal events has occured at random highly active intervals.

If you like this sort of read, I highly recommend it. Some of the events will really make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Check it out. Have a great day.

Jester

Sounds a little bit too Addams Family at first glance for me. All this happening at one place at the same time just doesn't sound credible at all. Where can I get this book?

Nothing to see here.

You may buy the book on Amazon, "Hunt for the Skinwalker".

Welcome Jester!

Where is Col. Mike Medcalf, call sign Viper?  Just joking.

I am not saying all this didn't happen. Haven't read the book, am interested on how everything seem to stop at once. That doesn't make sense. To have so many different occurrences happening at one time and then nothing. Does anyone have an explanation for this beside all of them being tired? I mean a skinwalker, UFO's. ghosts, sea serpents, blue orbs, on and on and all this stops around the same time? Along with the mystery of the events themselves, does anyone else wonder about this??

Yes, that is really annoying.  They reckon, as it is some sort of intelligence, they stopped because they knew why the people were there. I heard some stuff did still happen, but no way near as bad. In cases like this you really have to have faith in the people who lived in the farm. Were they lying?? did they make money from this??. I hope they are telling the truth because that would be amazing, but how do we know they are. Some of the stuff that was happening, even i find it hard to believe. Like the hole opening up, like some portal, and some creature coming out of it and disapearing into the night as the portal closed. I would really like to read the book. I wish there was a tv documentry made about it

So glad you responded and feel the same way. Have written down the title and am going to check with the bookstore. Sounds like it would at least be fascinating reading. Do you happen to know if there were other witnesses to the occurances at the house besides the family and paranormal researchers? The more there is the more creditable all this would be.

Yes, they theorize an intelligence was active and eventually grew tired of preforming.
Other witnesses include neighbors, police and the investigators.

I heard there was alot of activity outside the ranch too, but the real wierd stuff was on the ranch. Neighbors saw strange lights and stuff too. I would love to get the book:) If anyone gets it and reads it, get back to me:)
