Legend Tripping- the process of seeking adventure by going to places known to be associated with paranormal events. In the episode we offer some background on legend tripping in America (wait for Part Two for the best international destinations), including Capt. McKerry’s Vault on the Ohio River (Indiana)~Goatman’s Grave in Missouri~Ong’s Hat (ghosttown in NJ~Mountain Meadows Massacre Site (UT)~Winchester Mystery House (CA)~The Marshall House Hotel (Savannah GA)~Bloody Lane at Antietam (Sharpsburg, MD~Fort Monroe (Hampton, VA~ Murder Hotel (Chicago)~The Bridgewater Traingle (Mass)~ The 8 Best Places to find Bigfoot (in US).
Today we focus on one of the most fascinating conspiracy theories out there: the legend of ONG’S HAT, which mixes together the military-industrial complex, academic outlaws, and inter-dimensional travel all in one of the most remote pockets of the Pine Barrens. What’s real? What’s not? Why do some people want to believe so bad? And how is Ong’s Hat – which pre-exists the internet itself – a blueprint to things like QAnon today?
