Pay Attention to your Spirit Guides | Redmond, OR S01E04
A lot of stuff happened today.
I’m already seeing stuff in the room. I was warned that something was gonna happen. But I ignored it… (music) OK, I’m in Redmond, Oregon.
Yesterday was an amazing ride. I got in late last night and spent till after midnight cleaning up
from my adventure yesterday. The ride started out absolutely gorgeous. I left Cottage Grove, Oregon
and on the way out of town, spotted a sign for a cemetery
that was from 18-something, which is old for the west coast. I was riding along and noticed this cemetery,
established 1852. So as soon as I got here I was figuring
I’d go wander around, look at it, start to open up.
And I got, “Do not go in here.” So I’m not sure what that’s about. It’s an interesting looking place though. I also heard a wailing or moaning kind of sound
coming from off in that direction. We’ve got forests here.
I have no idea what I could have heard. Could have been a baby, could have been an animal. Could have been moaning. When I questioned that, I got ringing in this ear so I’m not sure exactly what that means but I’ll have to pay attention because
that might be a way of telling me that no, it is spirit. Because I do get spirit energy like with the high-pitched buzzing in my ears. It’s like tinnitus but you know what?
When I tune in it will go away. I’m gonna wander around and see
who else I might hear from. I’m getting told “Don’t go!” again so maybe I won’t. There’s some interesting stuff in here though. I’d like to check it out. One thing I love though are
angel statues and sculpture in these places. That’s my favorite thing, but I don’t see any. I just see old old headstones, gravestones. So I best be off. Yah, I’m getting a sense of a crowd kind of coming over, like “What is this guy doing? Who is this guy?” Be interesting to hear if it picks up on audio.
All right. No b-roll for this place because
I won’t go any further this way. Twinge on this finger. Hard. All right, don’t know what that was about. I went in the cemetery, did some recording.
I think I picked up a hitchhiker or two. Hitchhiking spirits.
Because they will follow. Later on I went up this one little road
that goes kind of over the mountains and on the way over, I had the impression
–this is a mental picture– of a very tall, 6-7-8 foot tall shadowy figure. And he had his hand out and it was like “DO NOT PASS.” And it wasn’t one of my guides that I’m used to so I was like, “You know, I can’t not do things just because somebody’s like ‘oh you shouldn’t go this way’ or whatever.” I do listen when I…
I feel like I’m hearing, “No, you don’t.” I do listen when they are really giving me
solid solid information. This was one guy saying, “Don’t go this way”
and it’s like, OK, well, I’m on an adventure. I want to do this ride.
This is one of the things, one of the BIG pieces
of what I wanted to come back and do. So I came to this spot rode up this ride,
rode up this mountain. I get like 60 miles in. I come around the corner and there’s a
landslide blocking my path. It looks brand new and so I’m kind of afraid
to get anywhere near it. But I turn around and I’m going back to this area and I see…there are hot springs right there. And a little ranger shack. So I’m hoping that there’s a ranger there so I can report the landslide. So I go over there and there’s a couple coming up and they tell me,
“Oh you know what, there’s a way the locals use to get here. You can go around this lake on this dirt path
and make it to the highway.” So that’s cool. I’m fine with that. But you know, he and his wife
were kind of arguing about it and I can’t hear
because I got the helmet on. But he’s like,
“Yah, there are some mud puddles and they’re like knee-deep, so I don’t know
if you want to go that way or go back.” I’m being adventurous and like, “OK, well I can do mud. It’s not knee deep. There’s no way!” So I go around and hit
a couple of these little mud puddles. They’re deeper than I expected.
Maybe a foot deep or so. And then I come to this long one. And the other ones have been really basic and I haven’t gotten off the bike to go wade through it, I’ve just kind of plowed through it like an idiot. So this one, it’s really long
and I make it about 3/4 of the way… I just crashed. I made it through except there’s
a boulder sticking out right there. And it’s pretty deep right there. It gets knee-deep.
My boots are filled with water. But I was able to get it started and I basically pushed it out. My gear is soaked though,
so I don’t know about that. That part’s gonna suck. So I did pretty well for wiping out in a mud puddle.
I didn’t get really too wet. The only stuff that was wet was in that one case and that’s my case that has the stuff
that I need for the day. This is my sacred map. That’s kinda gross. Flashlight. Heyyy. Here are my fuses. Tire kit. Oh, there’s a manual in there.
There WAS a manual in there. (bleep) is this? It’s just mud. This sucks. I could go gold panning in here. I’ll have to do a little bit of tidying up tonight. I salvaged basically everything.
Everything works. I wasn’t hurt.
It was just an adventure. (music) Freezing cold. Freezing cold. This place is weird. It’s like devoid of regular spirits. I’m exhausted so all of this
is gonna wait for tomorrow.
