Perhaps there should be a sign posted reading “paranormal sites are flammable” as yet another paranormal location burns. In this case, Linville Gorge of North Carolina, the location for the “Brown Mountain Lights”, lost over 2,000 acres. It is believed that a careless camper left his campfire unattended.

Should they find the camper, I propose as punishment that he wear a Smokey the Bear costume while replanting those 2,000 acres. Just an idea.

What are the lights? I don’t know, but I believe that it is a natural phenomena. BTW you can read Joshua P. Warren’s research of the lights at I highly recommend it. You can also check out more on Warren’s work at

When I lived in Pensacola, I had the opportunity to go aboard the HMS Bounty. I enjoyed every minute of it. I am sadden to learn of it’s lost and some reports suggest loss of life.

The Bounty was built for the 1962 movie “Mutiny on the Bounty” with Marlon Brando. It has been in several documentaries and was the Edinburgh Trader in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” with Johnny Depp.
