Vacation 2022: Haunted Texas Roadtrip Day 2

Today, we headed down to Huntsville Texas which is about an hour and 20 minute drive from the house and then, we headed over to Bowden Road aka Demon’s Road. We got a late start so it was already dark when we got there.

The place has a serious creep factor, and that was before we got out of the car. It’s another dirt road like Bragg Road, but it’s said to have more activity than Bragg. Bragg has trees that cross over the road creating a canopy in places. We didn’t go down the road that far, but the trees didn’t come that close to the road.

I don’t have any photos of our time there. We got out of the car, got our cameras out, and I took some photos while my son started taping. We had no cell service so he couldn’t live stream just like on Bragg Road.

As soon as I started taping, my phone completely died. I mean, just dead. No battery warning or anything. My son was using a flashlight as well as his phone, and the flashlight died right after my phone did. He asked me if I saw something down the road, and I couldn’t see anything it was so dark. His phone died a second later, and he said he felt himself get shoved.

He said it wasn’t hard, more of a “get a move on” type shove. He’d walked several yards in front of the car, and I had stayed by the front of the car. As I turned to walk to the driver’s side, I heard something hit the hood of the car, like a slap. My son was too far away to have touched the car.

We got both got in the car as fast as we could, and the car didn’t want to start at first. I’d turned the car off, no headlights or anything so the battery wasn’t drained – shouldn’t have been.

Needless to say, we got out of there as fast we could. When we got home, there were no pictures or video on either phone though I’m sure the pictures I’d taken had been saved.

I have no explanation for what happened. I didn’t see anything on the photos I took, and Joe says he didn’t see anything when he was taping. I can’t say for sure the place is haunted, but it was creepy. It was also a bit unnerving. I didn’t stay long enough to be scared properly, but I’m sure it was the right thing to do.

We plan to go back again, and we hope to be able to record something when we do.

Tomorrow night, we’re planning to stay at the Excelsior Hotel in Jefferson Texas.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!


Vacation 2022 Countdown: 21 days to Texas Haunted Roadtrip

How haunted it’s actually going to be is anyone’s guess!

Joe is all ready to stream our trip, and his followers are quite excited! I’ll be posting here with pictures as well!

I’ve already booked our first hotel. We’ll be staying in motels and hotels along the way so we can sleep for a few hours before checking out the haunted sites.

If you have any suggestions for where we should go, we’re going to be traveling from El Paso down to San Antonio and then on down to Galveston where we hope to go on a tour of The Hotel Galvez.

In El Paso, we’ll be trying to get a glimpse of La Llorona. She’s a grief stricken guilt ridden woman who drowned her own children to please a man, was rejected for doing so by same man and ended up drowning herself.

In Marfa, we’ll try to see The Marfa Lights. These are ghost lights seen from a bridge or something. Will be interesting.

In Seguin there’s a ghost at Woman Hollering Creek: She’s like the El Paso ghost.

In San Antonio, we hope to see The Saintly School Children. Apparently a bus full of school kids from a local Catholic school stalled on some train tracks while a train was coming. Everyone but the nun in charge was killed. It’s said if anyone stops on the tracks, the kids will push their vehicle off the tracks.

Goliad has Presidio La Bahia. This is a famous battle ground here in Texas and is said to be full of ghosts.

We end in Galveston at the Hotel Galvez.

We don’t actually end there. We’re picking Em up and circling around to Dallas so Joe and Em can visit some friends and so we can check out several hotels in the area.

As I said, if you live along this route and want us to check out some of your local hotspots for the paranormal, feel free to leave suggestions in the comments below.

Vacation 2022 Countdown: Texas Haunted Roadtrip

My son and I are taking most of my vacation this year together with Em, his lovely girlfriend, joining us for the last couple of days.

I like sharing my trips with people, makes it more fun that way, and Joe, my son, wanted something new for his stream on Twitch. We also both wanted to do a Texas Haunted Road Trip. It made sense to turn my vacation time into a road trip he’ll be streaming live, and I’ll take pictures and post some videos for you all to enjoy as well.

There are several different maps posted over the years pointing out haunted places in Texas to visit, We both agree to begin in El Paso since it’s the farthest point out from where we live. This is the map I’m looking at:

We’re planning on heading along the lower portion of the map so we end up back in Lufkin in time to pick up Em before heading up to Dallas. We’ll be stopping at different places along the way. If you live anywhere along the route or within like 50 miles of it, and you know some places said to be haunted, let me know in the comments below. We’ll make time to hit them up and give you credit for sending us that way whatever happens. 🙂

I am excited to try this. I enjoy new places and driving so it’s a win win with me. Cherry on top is doing this with my son and his GF. My vacation starts on 3 October, a Monday and goes for an entire week – plenty of time for rest breaks during the day and ghost hunting at night!
