Alright, so 8 of my friends and I took a trip to Bachelor's Grove cemetery yesterday (August 10, 2008) and what I saw? -Nothing. The graveyard was amazing though. Even if it was dark outside, I thought it was a beautiful place. Although I didn't see anything, or even think I saw anything, 3 of my friends did and it was all the same thing...a house with 2 windows. I couldn't see it and they said it would disappear after a couple of minutes, but before entering the area where they saw the house they started saying it was cold. Now even though I myself SAW nothing, I felt something. All night I was looking for a house, a man dressed in yellow, a hooded figure, a man pulling a horse and plow, but nothing...until myself and 3 of my friends (after the other 5 chickened out and waited outside because one reported unknown scratches on her knee...but we all did have to go through thorn bushes to get to the cemetery...) came across the checkered grave. We were almost leaving when I heard something that sounded like wind or someone blowing into my ear, but I didn't feel anything, and my hair was tucked behind my ears and I had a hat on...not 3 seconds after that happened, my friends yells "the checkered grave!" But that was it. And if anyone is interested in knowing how exactly to GET to the cemetery, it's NOT at the entrance of the Rubio Woods...it's across the street and I think my group and I devised a cop-proof plan. -7 of us were dropped off at the Rubio Woods forest preserve right before sunset and closing time while 2 others went to find a parking place. When the turnpike was clear, we ran across the street and hid behind a kind of power-plan looking thing, or like a cell tower power unit. While we hid there, the 2 others parked and walked to us. -Which looks much less conspicuous than 9 walking together. Anywho, right behind the cell tower plant, you can walk straight into the woods and will come across a trail...just watch the thorn bushes.
