Hey, I'm new to the site and I love it! Just wanted to relate what recently happened to my boyfriend and I when we visited La Crosse about a month ago.I had read about the Bodega Brew Pub in a haunted Wisconsin book, and with nothing to do on a weekend we deceided to go to La Crosse and check it out. We first went to the bar on a Friday night, but it was packed with college kids, so the only thing we saw was some bad hair. We did go back the next afternoon, however, and we were the only customers in the place.We began chatting with the bartender, telling him why we had come, and he told us a few of the things that had happened to him, doors that could not possibly move by themselves slaming shut in his face and locking him out, etc. Since we were the only ones there, he took us on a tour of the basement, which is where all the action takes place. It was creepy, dark, sounds of water dripping, but I wasn't really scared, until we came to this hallway. About halfway down the hall it felt like, I'm not quite sure how to describe it, like a cold spot moved through my body, every hair on the back of my neck stood on end, and I wanted to get the hell out of there. These type of things usually don't frighten me, but there was, for lack of a better term, a really bad vibe. There is something there I'm positive about that.Check it out, go on a slow afternoon, maybe you'll get a basement tour!

I will only wish I was not so far away...
There is a cemetary in my city, and I am confused to what is really happening there, but I sometimes go there and sit on a bench for eternity and just watch things go on, as much as the way the squirrels interact differently than in a city park.
This cemetary is pretty much from the 1800's, and a city street no longer goes near it. You park your car and walk for about 2 blocks.... it's quiet, peaceful and tranquil (still heavily monitored by the police dept, from what I understand).
I am glad you were able to talk to someone who had experienced some of this, first hand... had to be interesting!
