117 – Great Serpent Mound – Peebles, OH

Play

One week back from the Ozark Mountains UFO Conference and we are all still a little slap-happy! On this week’s episode, Harley and Brett have to strip off the excess gear to fully explore one of the most scenic areas in all of Ohio, Peebles, OH.

This place was apparently built for hikers. With miles of trails, you can hike for days or take an afternoon exploring one of the smaller trails.

We have an interview with Ross Hamilton about the Great Serpent Mound and he is smarter than us. We discuss his 12 year exploration of the Serpent Mound and his book The Mystery of the Serpent Mound.

What is the origin of the Serpent Mound?

What is its astronomical significance?

Why was it built here?

Who were the Adena people?

Is the Serpent Mound a path to enlightenment, a map of the stars, haunted, or an intergalactic Phillips 66?

There are events feature drumming, sweat lodges, healing ceremonies, and crystal skulls at the mound.

What is Sound Current meditation?

If you have already found enlightenment, you can always check out the Cedar Trails Nudist Retreat. It is family orientated and they have loads of activities….we tried to not make it weird….that didn’t work.

BK Scoop in West Union may have the coolest menu ever. #travelodditiesapproved

The Top 5 is full of icons and lies.

114 – The Curse of the Franklin Castle – Cleveland, OH

Play

We visited Cleveland Ohio back in December for an Odd Spot on the A Christmas Story house and Harley and Brett had to return because Cleveland has so much more going on.

We start with the curse of Franklin Castle. There are a lot of rumors of death and dismemberment around this 1800s Victorian home. We discuss the history and the ghosts that have apparently moved into the house.

Since we are back in town, we couldn’t pass up a short stop to the Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. This creepy little museum is a must see for a variety of reasons….we think they have the Necronomicon in the back.

TableTop Board Game Café seems like it is right up our Diagon Alley. With over a thousand board games and food like their Savory Gravory Waffles…..waffles and sausage gravy….our arteries will be sweating for sure.

Brett went rogue with The Top 5, and he broke the whole damn show.

102 – Haunted Moonville Tunnel – McArthur, OH

Play

Harley has the Super Swine Bird Flu, so Amy and Brett took that opportunity to release another ghost show…where are the cryptids, UFOs and conspiracies?

On this episode we discuss the haunted Moonville Tunnel in McArthur, Ohio. What do you get when you cross a spooky railroad tunnel with a history of horrific death?

This oddity is spooky and if you want to up the fear factor we have the solution. Midnight at Moonville is a Halloween-themed event featuring dramatic storytelling, wagon rides, regional craft vendors, souvenirs, historical presentations, music performances, a haunted trail, and much more.

If you don’t like spooky, this area is widely known for quilt barns…listen to the show and find out.

Amy explains why she always follows trucks that are carrying whiskey.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and since Harley is out of the way, Brett and Amy decided to class the place up by including the Lake Hope Lodge.

The Top 5 now, exclusively wears patent leather shoes.
