Weird Florida: UNLEASHED 2005

WOW!! All I can say is wow! To all the people that showed up, you helped make Weird Florida: UNLEASHED a success! This was the first time for me ever trying something like this, and it went well because of you! I won't forget that.

Thanks for the support, -Owen

SpookHunters along with the Volusia Investigators of the Paranormal hosted a Weird Florida Book Release party, with guest of honor Charlie Carlson, at the Blue Dahlia in historic downtown Sanford. It was an evening full of Florida Weirdness to say the least!

Not only was Mr. Carlson there feverishly signing anything and everything people were putting in front of him, including a man's arm, but the Great Magician Harry Wise entertained patrons with a few old classics from his bag of tricks. You can buy his biography by clicking here. Also in attendance was a real life Medium! The Amazing Susan Thompson entertained skeptical questions from yours truly as well as from others. I'm not sure, but I think she might be the real thing!

As everyone was finishing up their meals, and enjoying each others company, and pointing out Greg, who was wearing his face pain, a real life Skunk Ape was delivered to the event!!!! That's right! I didn't mistype! A skunk ape was lead into the event by two young men. Obviously this creature was very dangerous, I mean two guys were required to walk it around and keep it in check. Who know what would have happened if I was wearing my orange suit at the time. Mr. Carlson got his picture with the beast, but since it wasn't quite as big as he wanted he couldn't give them the $10,000. However, he was going to give them a Weird Florida book, but apparently the beast got a little agitated and for our own protection they led him away.

The night went on and concluded shortly before 10pm with a slew of prizes that were given away. One gentleman who was present won 3 different items, while his wife won two. It pays to buy the tickets! Some of the prizes given away included a Weird Florida book, some SpookHunters T-shirts, beautifully framed pictures of orbs, and a mouse in a jar. The grand prize was the actual map which was used by Charlie Carlson in his 2500 mile quest for Weird Florida. It is worn from use, has routes outlined, has various weird places circled and other scribbles of mileage etc on it. A true collectable!
