1:45pm - Our team arrives at Myrtles with a 2:00 p.m. check-in awaiting us. We began to roam the grounds, checking out the place. Myrtles is outstanding and breathtaking in beauty and mystery. Without any knowledge of the hauntings of this location, one is overwhelmed with the amount of Spanish moss hanging from the many ancient trees on the grounds.

3 - 4pm - Darren takes a nap in one of the more "active" rooms - the Green Room. This one has been known for visitations from Chloe. He had set up a Hi-8 to record anything. Shortly after falling asleep, he says, "Something touched my hand, and I jerked it back and woke up." This is evident on the tape. He also set a voice-activated recorder in an adjacent room. On playback, the tape contained some odd "ticking" noise. Nothing was in the room to produce that sound. Around that same time, Rob and I were outside of the room Darren was sleeping in and felt the same "pressure on the neck/need to pop the neck" sensation. This was the first instance of this even after walking up and down lugging equipment.
