Do you plan to travel with your ghost in the near future?
Here are a few things you should know when you plan to take your ghost or poltergeist on the family vacation.
We all or aware that some ghosts are not suited for long distance travel. Depending on how long your ghost has been a ghost and of course location some may not be able to travel as such. In that case it is always good to get a ghost sitter.
But if you must drag that ghost, poltergeist, spook or specter that you love so much on the vacation here or some import items and knowledge you should know!
A ghost or haunted passport, as it is so called . A ghost photo of your ghost and a smudged spot of ecto-plasam, slime burial cloth or in the place of a signature
Well, that's not exactly what we mean by Ghost passport. It's basically certification from your local Paranormal Investigators that your ghost is healthy and that its vaccinations are current.
Ghost passports aren't necessary for interstate travel, but if you're leaving the country, it's a good idea to have one. In fact, a ghost passport may be required by haunted paranormal law, as in the European Poltergeist and Standard Ghost Union.
Why would Ghost governments care about your Ghost? Let's say you're crossing the pond and vacationing in England with your ghost for a couple weeks. British Ghost authorities wouldn't be too pleased if that cute Ghost had an ugly case of Ghost pox or ecto drip that spread to other ghost and sparked an outbreak.
Different countries have varying regulations regarding ghosts vaccinations and quarantines. To investigate the ghost import rules of your international destination, you can consult the U.S. Ghost Embassy in that country.
When traveling by ghost or poltergeist in particular might not be the kindest to your seats. For safe car traveling, poltergeist should be housed in carriers. Of course, you want your ghost where all the action is, but you also don't want to spend hours cleaning slime and ecto- crap off the upholstery.
How about placing old towels or blankets on the seat? They might suffice for short jaunts, but neither does a good job staying in place when a ghost moves around on them for a long time. For extended trips in the car, purchasing a seat cover might be in order.
Seat covers are simple to understand -- they do exactly what you think they do. The fabric encases the seat to protect the upholstery or leather. You can find seat covers in different sizes to fit captain chairs in the front of the vehicle or longer passenger seats in the back. Sound drab? Not so. Manufacturers make special ghost seat covers in a rainbow of colors and textures to keep you and your ghost at peace on the road. Some even come in eco-friendly, water-resistant or scratch-durable fabrics. The main decision when shopping for a seat cover is how much you'd like to spend. Seat covers fit any budget, running from under $50 to more than hundreds of dollars.
OK, it's not something you need to pack, but a Ecto-chip is a good idea to implant in your invisible friend before you travel. One of the major reasons you may avoid traveling with your ghost is fear of losing it. But here's where you can rest a little easier. Microchips, which are slowly becoming more common for ghosts, can help you track down a lost ghost.
The data inside Ecto-chips contains an identification number, which usually consists of nine digits if sold in the United States and 15 digits in the European Union. These Ecto-chips work off of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, and the varying amount of digits in the identification numbers indicates different radio frequencies. When you register your Ecto-chip with an agency such as the American Ghost Club, that number corresponds to your contact information. When a ghost becomes lost and -- hopefully -- ends up at an ghost shelter, the shelter can scan the Ecto-chip for identification information. Personnel at the shelter can then contact you and return your ghost.
Ghost Ecto-chips are barely larger than a grain of rice, and most ghost doctors implant them regularly into ghost via a ghost -podermic needle. Some ghost shelters also offer Ecto-chipping services. Implants generally cost less than $50. Many individuals today or starting to find that ectothermic tags are just not enough.
So what to do if you're driving across the country with a ghost? Train it to walk on a leash? Unless you have plenty of time and patience at your disposal before your trip, you bring the bathroom with you. A portable ghost litter tray folds up for easy storing, and you toss the contents after your ghost uses it. This tray can also come in handy if you're staying over at someone's house or at a hotel with a ghost.
A leash is the best way to get your ghost some exorcise. And let it do it's spooky business. Many Spook specialist who live in the eastern part of the country suggest long leashes at least 20 feet so the ghost can do it's business in private.
Before you travel with your ghosts, remember that they're extremely territorial, habitual creatures. In addition to getting them acclimated to the motion of riding in a car, you should acquaint them with the new ghost litter box in the weeks before your trip. That way, it will look and smell familiar, and your ghost will be more willing to use it. Otherwise, you could end up with a stinky haunted mess in the backseat or the hotel floor.
Ghost Toys and Play Sets
When you're trapped in a car for a while, you probably tend to get a little restless. So do your ghosts. Once they grow accustomed to the movement of the car, some ghosts and poltergeists will nod off and nap.
But unless you give them sedatives, that probably won't be the case for the duration of an hours-long journey. Perhaps they have excessive energy from being confined to a small space or just want some old-fashioned attention. One way you can kill two birds with one stone is bringing along a few ghost toys or play sets.
Ghost entertainment doesn't have to be anything extravagant. A favorite poltergeist toy or grand mothers good crystal from home makes an excellent distraction. The items are familiar and, thus, keep your ghosts calmer as they break them. This can go for poltergeists as well. If they have a preferred set of dishes or type of family heirloom that they usually go after and destroy in your home, bring some of it put it inside their carrier. Of course, a heavy chain and an iron ball to drag around will also tucker out a ghost.
Sickness or injury is the last thing you want to happen to any of your ghosts's on a trip. But as everyone knows, things go wrong sometimes, and it's best to be prepared. If you're traveling in a car, you might already have a first aid-kit suitable for injuries to humans. When traveling with real ghosts, you should also have one ready for the special needs of a paranormal entity. You can purchase pre made ghost first aid-kits on line, or you can package one of your own from items you probably have at home.
If you want to take the do-it-yourself approach, the American Paranormal Cross recommends the following basic supplies for any ghost first aid-kit: ecto-pads, ecto-gauze rolls and bandages, cotton swabs, instant cold pack, roll of cloth, turkey injector, can opener, Clairol 12-G hair color, crescent wrench, hydrogen peroxide, super glue, 2 gallons of Kilz, A copy of Ghost For Dummies and antibiotic ointment
You can also include additional items, such as plastic gloves, electric drill, handcuffs, ecto laser, plastic bags, mild to strong ghost sedatives, and bottled water. If the ghost becomes seriously ill or hurt, take caution if attempting to treat it on your own. For major injuries, you may want to locate the nearest witch or Necromancer.
Like identification tags, carriers are an obvious necessity for traveling with a poltergeist. Yet, you ought to evaluate the ghost kennel you have and determine whether it's suitable for an extended trip -- especially if your itinerary includes flying. First, check the carrier's containment field. How secure is it? When you crate your ghost or poltergeist for a quick outing, does the ghost moan, howl, rattle or scratch on the door? Has it ever successfully escaped? If so, it could be time to invest in a new ghost carrier. Grated electric containment metal doors will be the most secure and chew-proof. Determined ghosts might eventually work their teeth through plastic ones. Ghost Carriers should also have no ventilation.
Planning to fly with your ghost? The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) warns against companies that tout their ghost kennel as airline-approved. While most airlines won't allow large home containment wheeled carriers on board, there are no pre-approved types of carriers. Just opt for the strongest and most comfortable one for your ghost. Ghost travel rules differ among airlines, and you can contact them individually for their specifications.
Ghost ID Tags
It's one of the most fundamental basics of ghost ownership: Make sure that your ghost, spook or specter is always wearing a collar with a tag on it whenever you venture forth from home. Poltergeist must be registered as we all know, and stun collars worn at all times.
Simple ghost collars and tags are probably essential travel accessories that every roving ghost should wear. Most ghosts and poltergeists already wear some sort of collar and tag with their name on it. But in addition to an identification tag bearing the ghost's name and the owner's local contact information, Ghosts also need Ecto thermic tags and travel tags with your out-of-town contact information [source: American Association of Ghost And Inter-Space Continuum Medicine].
Think of detailed identification tags as a form of ghost travel insurance. The ghost ecto-chips discussed earlier will help if you become separated from your ghost; however, lost ghosts don't always end up at ghost shelters.
Many runaway ghosts sometime find a new place to haunt. Others might take the long journey to find you and get mixed up with the roving gangs of ghosts that haunt our highways.
Worse yet what if your lost poltergeist turns up in a china Warehouse and they read the chip and find out he belongs to you! Always report your lost ghost and poltergeist immediately to state or the Country your in Paranormal ghost hunting team.
If a person finds the ghost but doesn't turn it into a shelter, he or she has no way of scanning the ecto-chip. That's when the travel contact information could save the day. Since those important tags are attached to a collar, make sure that your ghost's collar is secure on its neck. An old, ratty one could fall off.
You can always contact the International Association of Lost Ghost. These specialized trackers can be found on the internet.
