ROBERT REPPERT, owner/founder
RUSH GHOSTS INTERNATIONAL PARANORMAL INVESTIGATIONS
and the inspiration for the television show INVESTIGATING
THE UNKNOWN (Channel 17 the 4th Wed. night of every
month) has a motto he lives by, and it is “GOLD
RUSH GHOSTS ~WHERE SCIENCE MEETS THE PARANORMAL.”
Reppert has an extended history in research in all
things paranormal which has extended for many years,
starting in his teens.
I was 17 years of
age and camping in the wood where a stream runs
under a low small country bridge in the middle of
a forest in California ” he told this reporter.
My friend and I were just below the small bridge,
which has just enough room for one car to pass.
Camping that night we were, as all kids that age,
looking for an adventure. This time we found one!
time was about 10:30 at night, and we were just
getting comfortable laying out and hopping into
our sleeping bags. We were just settling in, talking,
telling tales and talking about girls as boys that
age will do.
And then it happened.”
He stopped for a
minute to recall in every detail of the events that
followed. “It was not a well lit night, I
can remember that, but there was enough of a moon
that if you looked up you know what direction you
were in. As we lay there talking my friend grabbed
my arm and said ‘look…there!’
I am not certain if at that moment we were more
curious, or frightened.
before us coming directly upstream was a green ball
about 2 feet in diameter. It came toward us slowly
following the river’s path through the trees,
inching its way in our direction from downstream.
Without further conversation between us, we became
still as lambs hoping it would not target or see
us. As we watched, it made a slight turn for the
right, and went slowly and directly under the bridge.
Right in front of us and right after going under
the bridge it quickly made a bee-line for the sky,
going right overhead of us, faster than anything
I had ever seen, and then it disappeared.”
The 17 year olds
quickly packed up their gear and headed for home.
This was the incident
however, to peak Reppert’s interest in all
things strange and unknown. The next day he went
back to that bridge to see if there was anything
that would indicate what had happened the night
before. All appeared to be normal. Over the years
there have been several accounts such as his at
this site. Recently, and once again, GRG/ITU investigated
the same Bridge and forest area for our group and
television show. The shots are there for you to
see, activity was recorded, and yet the mystery
Although the exact
cause of this phenomena is still up for grabs Reppert
knows he will solve this mystery, as well he has
into this business because it seemed that paranormal
groups around here were looking for ghosts and goblins
and werewolves and UFO’S and saying that everything
they heard, explored or wrote about was phenomena.
One group I can remember were media hounds, making
a mockery of it all for the sake of publicity, giving
falsified reports to television and radio stations,
and an unsuspecting public. It really upset me,
and I knew right then that there was a need for
actuality in this business. It is certainly not
a place for the novice, or person strictly looking
for goose bumps out of boredom. There was a need
for specifics and science to balance out the absurd.
As we have now proven, the ratio is about one to
every eight investigations that we go out on has
a serious paranormal indication. The rest, through
science and the best of all equipment we are able
to assess as earthly explanation, and can put peoples
minds to rest one way or the other. “
The bridge remains
But being a paranormal
investigator was not enough. Reppert had to have
the BEST! He began investing in the finest paranormal
equipment around, state-of-the-art, best in the
world. Purchased equipment that proved to be bogus
was quickly discarded. More was purchased. “I
am always looking for the best there is” he
told us. “I’m on a mission, and we are
all about honesty.” Then a smile came over
his face, “But don’t try and fool me
with trying to sell faulty equipment” he said.
“I clearly know the difference.” Today
Reppert’s organization maintains over a million
dollars (easy) of the finest equipment in the world,
not to mention the equipment he himself has designed
to hear, see and feel the spirits that are around.
“If you have anything around you that is not
of this living world” he said, “You
can be certain we will find it.” Today Reppert
and his organization can actually show you from
your television screen where the ghosts and spirits
are around you. He can show you with scientific
equipment what EVP’s are actually from the
other side, or which contain a different scenario
of audio transference. “This phenomena, although
I could go into a lot of theory” he said “Is
where either the tape or digital recording transfers
over to another place on the tape or digital file
for just one explanation.” Another smile,
“And then of course there are those that will
say any noise is a “voice from the other side.”
Having a background
in psychology, Reppert approaches the search with
a logical point of view. “I have been researching
the fields of Paranormal studies since before high
school and have always been the one to look for
the logical reasoning for what occurs in this world.
I have also studied architecture, electricity, photography,
building materials, and other things as a way of
explaining some of the activity that may appear
to be paranormal but has a logical explanation.
Our group ONLY looks for and reports TRUTH. We are
commissioned by government and private agencies
to explore things that go bump in the night, as
well as work with everyday folks in need of our
services. In the world of paranormal groups on every
site and street-corner, we stand out as reasonable,
responsible, honest, and the oldest and largest
paranormal group around.
Whether you see
him in his “Ghost Mobile” Nissan truck,
or the ‘Paddy car’, his 1951 Black Buick,
Reppert can be an interesting person to be around.
With a great sense of humor and excitement, he brings
to the psychic/paranormal/ and still unknown world
adventures of the spooky side. With one important
bent… proving, TRUTH.
