    I would really like to go on one of these. After all Griffin's talk on the podcast about them they sound like a blast. I found a website that offers them.

    www.austinghosttours.com/

    I emailed them about to see if they had anything planned for the night of the 26th, times, cost, ect... still waiting on a reply. How many people would be interested in going if things got off the ground?

    I'll probably pass. I'm not a ghost believer, and if I'm going to just have drinks with a bunch of people from RT I'd rather do it at Highball or another local bar.

    Austin Ghost Tours is actually really good! I went on their Halloween tour and really enjoyed it. Even if you don't believe in ghosts, it's still fun to wander around downtown Austin and be told stories about its history. (It was especially fun because we went on Halloween weekend and there were a ton of crazy drunken people in costumes running around.)

    Haha I bet Halloween would be awesome. 6th is nuts on Halloween! But for just a normal ghost tour, I think I'd personally rather do my own pub crawl or something instead

    I'm excited because my birthday is November 1st so at midnight on Halloween night I'm turning 21. It's gonna be the best night ever.

    Also, that makes sense. It was pretty cool though on our ghost tour when the tour guide pointed out where a scene from Machete was filmed. But there's so much fun to be had on 6th and awesome food trailers that set up for 6th street drunkards. :)

    I'm looking forward to being one in Austin. With or without the ghost tour

    Wouldn't it be a good idea to ask Griffin which one she would recommend? Either way I'll probably end up doing this.

    I pray my story ends up like her New Orleans trip.

    I would love to ask her, but l don't know how to get a message to here that she would read. I put a comment on her page, but we will see.

    If you can't get into one (they're pricey and it's the off season for ghost tours), I've actually done enough research I can do an impromptu one about Austin's first serial killer (who some believe may have been Jack the Ripper practicing before going back to London) and a few of the biggest hotspots downtown. I'm also a massive skeptic so I can present the folklore and stories without giving you a lot of mumbo jumbo. Seriously, the stories are creepy enough on their own in some cases.

    I emailed a company who does them, its $20 bucks a head, and we would need at least 20 people to go for them to make it a private thing. If there is enough interest I will follow up on it.

    Any word on this? I'm certain Nat would be interested, depending on the day and time, and that means I'd probably come too.

    That sounds like a lot of fun! I know how much I love the one in Charleston, but I'd love to do one in a town I didn't grow up in lol

    There hasn't been a lot of positive feedback from the places I have posted. I don't think there would be a big enough group of people do to the private tours, but maybe if there is one scheduled one of the nights we can get in on that.

    I'll talk to some of my friends who are going. I don't know if they've seen this thread so I'll send them over to see if they're interested.

    If you are interested in a ghost tour that fits in with the Sidequest schedule you might check out the tour of the Paramount Theater that apparently includes some ghost aspects.
