20 QUESTIONS WITH Alan Rupnick

Alan Rupnick

 

Alan Rupnick

Alan Rupnick is thirty-six years old and resides in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He has had an enthusiastic interest in ghosts and haunted locations since he was a child. While he has dabbled in the field since 1989 when he had his second unexplained encounter with the paranormal, he began his most serious research in 1998.


Apparitions Inc.
In 2001 Alan founded the paranormal investigations team Apparitions Inc. The team investigated several haunted locations and cemeteries in their time together. Their most noteworthy being the Historic Karsten Inn located in Kewaunee, Wisconsin. The group disbanded in 2003.

Alan continued his research and to this day studies alone or on occasion with close friends and other research teams.

IAmHaunted.com
Alan spent a lot of his time researching and talking with others online. Though he believed the Internet was a great wealth of information he felt that it was too spread out and a lot of work was required to find new and relevant information. Keeping in touch with others in the field also proved to be a time consuming problem.

I Am Haunted is a social network for those who are interested in the paranormal. Whether your interest is ghosts and hauntings, UFOs, cryptozoology, psychic abilities or anything off the beaten path, you will find thousands of people sharing photos, experiences and friendship.

Alan has always had a love for computers and the Internet. He had educated himself in the art of web development and loved building web sites. He decided he would put his skills to use to create a place where all who loved the paranormal could gather, share information and stay in touch. On November 15, 2006 he launched IAmHaunted.com, a paranormal community that was like no other. It was an idea that was long over due and the site is growing in leaps and bounds. It is without a doubt one of the most visited paranormal sites on the Internet today.

Research
Alan continues his research today. Currently he is conducting experiments on the Ouija Board and EVP. He is also researching cold spots, electromagnetic fields, battery drain and other phenomenon that takes place in a haunted location. He believes that the current explanations don’t have any scientific foundation and are just generic answers given when people are cornered with a tough question and don’t have a legitimate answer.

 

20 QUESTIONS with Alan Rupnick

1. Where do you see ghost hunting and Paranormal groups, web sites or Ghost information, tours, Books being like your own in 10 years?

I believe there will be a lot of growth within the next ten years. Paranormal investigation no longer has that “taboo” association anymore thus many new faces are being seen. I see things moving more toward serious research and getting back to our original focus. I don’t see the sensationalism we face today being around in the future. As far as “I Am Haunted” I am not sure where that will be in 10 years. However I believe we will still be around and in huge numbers. The nice thing about a paranormal community is that it is more then just a fad. It can change to meet the ever changing needs of the paranormal community so the service will always be of some value. I’ve seen many paranormal web sites reach a climax and then fall apart and disappear because they failed to evolve with their members. It is my hope that IAH will continually grow and change for the better.


2. What would you personally consider to be the definitive proof that ghosts are real?

Because of personal experience I do believe that ghosts are real by our current “definition” of a ghost. I think the only definitive proof other then figuring out a way to trap one would be to have information given to us by a ghost that can scientifically prove their existence.


3. What is the most real evidence you personally have uncovered so far?

I have several videos, photos and class “A” EVP that I have taken over the years that can’t be explained by any science known to me.


4. Are you skeptical of the claims other make of their findings?

I am very skeptical of claims made by others. In this day and age we have a lot of people out there who do not scrutinize their own evidence. It seems everywhere is haunted these days and everyone has seen a ghost. I have investigated more places then I care to count and so far only two made the grade and I will actually publicly state they are haunted.

5. If you could investigate your "Dream Haunted Hot Spot" where would it be?

I guess the one place I would like to investigate above all others is the Queen Mary.

6. What was your first Paranormal encounter?

I had several experiences when I was really young. Looking back on them 28 years later I believe they were paranormal in nature though at the time it hadn’t occurred to me. The one I knew was paranormal the moment it happened took place 19 years ago when I was 17 years old and my encounter was with a shadow person. It left a lasting impression on me and I remember it like it happened 5 minutes ago.


7. What scares you about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal Investigations?

To be honest I don’t think there is anything about the subject that scares me. I’ve been in a few situations in my day that shook me a little bit but I’ve never fled in terror and I’ve never been afraid to jump into the middle of any situation. In fact the situations many would call dangerous or would not deal with are the situations I find myself most attracted to.


8. If you could work side by side with one of the Paranormal Investigator greats, who would it be?

I believe there is entirely too much sensationalism surrounding the people considered to be the greats. TV shows and book deals don’t make an investigator great. Passion, integrity and a genuine quest for the truth make an investigator great. I much prefer working with the people who are in the trenches every day digging for the truth. Those who give every ounce of themselves because they love the chase, and don’t think about potential reward for their work. Those are the people I think are great.

9. Read any good Paranormal Books lately?

I read the Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits. It has a lot of really great history and information.


10. What Question do people ask you most when you tell them your a paranormal investigator?

The most common question is…”Do you actually believe in that stuff?”


11. In your opinion, Where is the most Haunted city in America?

I haven’t traveled enough to have an opinion about that.


12. Do you feel more people should get involved with Ghost hunting or Paranormal Investigation?

If they are doing it for the right reasons then yes, I believe everyone who has an interest should pursue that interest.


13. What does the future hold for you?

All I can say for sure is that I’ll investigate until my body no longer allows me to do so. I know I’ll run “I Am Haunted” as long as I am able as well. I will go where progress takes me I guess.

14. Paranormal Conventions do you see them growing?

I don’t know what the future holds for conventions. However I have noticed a major decline this year over last year. I think people are getting sick of the same old thing from one convention to the other. I’ve also noticed many conventions are just a gathering of the Hollywood types and are being used to promote TV shows, documentaries and personal agendas when they SHOULD be promoting the spirit of why we do this. I think good conventions are a good blend of entertainment, discussion, education and meaningful activities.


15. What is your most favored tool of the trade?

An eye for detail and deductive reasoning are my most favored tools. All the other gadgets are useless if you don’t possess those things.


16. Tell us about your best moment in investigating or conference attending for you?

It would be hard to pick a best moment. I enjoy every moment I’m in the field and I’ve also enjoyed the conventions I’ve been too. I love meeting new people and discussing theory.


17. What is the hardest part about being paranormal investigator?

All the misleading or false information out there is the hardest thing for me as an investigator. People seem willing to say anything to be popular and it is very counter productive.

18. How do you document your investigations?

I document with a digital recorder and paper forms. All voice memos are written into the final documentation.


19. Have you ever taken a ghost Tour? And what did you not like about it?

I’ve been on a ghost tour before and I really enjoyed it. I think people often have unreal expectations of ghost tours. If you go into it realizing you are not there to investigate then you are going to have a great time. I think ghost tours are of great value for the history one can learn from them. I go on ghost tours to be entertained and relax and I feel they do a good job.


20. What in the field of ghost hunting and Paranormal Investigating needs the most attention?

I think we have enough science behind us that we can put some of the old theories to rest. Before moving forward I think we should be trying to prove or disprove current beliefs through controlled experiments. Do ghosts really drain batteries or is there another explanation? Are cold spots really formed the way we currently think they are? These are the things we need to work on before we go any further. Just my humble opinion.
