Haunt Jaunting in Chernobyl

This week both Autumnforest of Ghost Hunting Theories and Julie at Above the Norm made posts concerning Chernobyl. Good topic as it was also the subject of one of the investigations on Destination Truth this week. In fact, Julie’s post was about the DT episode. Autumnforest’s was a video from YouTube about a tour through Chernobyl.

I read Autumnforest’s post first and had left a comment about images of Chernobyl I’d seen online once upon a time. All I remembered was that they were photos taken by some woman who had ridden her motorcycle into the contaminated area. She then compiled them into one of the most chilling photo essays I’ve ever seen. It has haunted me ever since.

So then I moseyed on over to Above the Norm and low and behold, Atrueoriginall (who maintains six blogs, including Ghost Hunters Investigations, The Paranormal Casebook, and Alien Casebook “Fringe”) left a comment about the same thing! Except, she knew the link and left it.

If Destination Truth piqued your interest, I’d recommend both checking out the video Autumnforest put on her blog and the KiddofSpeed website with the motorcyle tour through Chernobyl photos. I’m certain both will leave an impression you’re not soon to forget.

  1. Yeah, I don’t know what it is about Cheronbyl that fascinates people so much, but the thought of a huge area being evacuated and left as-is for decades just makes us wonder what else they left behind in their absolute horror and deaths…

  2. It really freaks me out. I think something that truly terrifies me is exactly what happened there: a total nuclear incident. (Be it a faulty reactor or nuclear weapons.) There’s no way to survive it. (Well, I guess some did. But what kind of health problems do they have now? Not to mention the psychological effects of it all…)

  3. The commanding officer survived the entire incident and he was in the main control room. He ended up dying do to natural causes.

  4. Hi techno! You know, I think I had heard that before but forgot about it. There were other people like that too weren’t there? Ones who didn’t die of radiation or complications from it but either old age or otherwise. Great comment. Thanks! (It’s one of those that makes me go, “Hmmm…” Love those!)
