68 – The Stanley Hotel – Estes Park, CO

Play

***Warning. We have some audio anomolies, and we are currently blaming gremlins***

All work and no play, makes Brett a dull boy. All work and no play is Harley’s standard operating procedure. On this week’s episode, Harley and Brett work their way through the maze that is the Stanley Hotel in beautiful Estes Park, CO.

This oddity is one of our favorites. It starts with the beautiful Colorado Rockies, gets the Stephen King treatment, throw in a dash of Stanley Kubrick and a pinch of Jack Nicholson and you have one creepy winter treat.

We had a great interview with Natalie Fowler, co-author of Monster’s of the Midwest: True Tales of Bigfoot, Werewolves, and other legendary Creatures. On top of being an author, Natalie is also a paranormal investigator and researcher for Ghost Stories Ink.

Natalie explains how one accidentally goes on a ghost hunt, and her experience at The Stanley Hotel.

In The News: Alien spacecraft flashing the earth…space flashers?

We discuss Estes Park, CO. If you go, there will not be a shortage of beautiful vistas and nature at it’s finest.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and we think awesome burgers that are inexpensive are the best burgers.

Brett’s Top 5 is “high”ly informative.

Play

On this weeks episode Brett and Harley travel north(ish) to VanMeter, IA in search of the Van Meter Visitor, Mothman, Mystery Creature whatcha ma call it.

Try saying that 5 times fast, that’s a real oddity. Again this week with the tongue twisters.

They had the pleasure of interviewing Jessica Freeburg, co-author of the”Hitch Hikers Guide to Cryptids” ‘Monsters of the Midwest

They also talk about the Vameter Visitor Festival that comes around every late September…do the math on that one.

In The News: Pojo’s Pure Vermont Soaps that are saito ward off Vampires and Werewolves and anychance at true love; unless of course you find someone that doesn’t have the sense of smell.

We discuss Van Meter #inanutshell

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, the boys give you the “skinny” on Fat Randi’s Bar and Grill and why Iowa has a state bird, rock, flower and apparently a state sandwhich.

Brett’s Top 5 is a top 5 of epic perportions only because he never stays on topic

Brett and Harley ‘It’s better to burn out than to Fae away’ I believe that’s the saying. The Fairy welcoming committee is well under way. Can Brett find it in his heart to open his mind, body and spirit to the the fae. Tune in next time to find out if it was a Bang or Bust.
