There are times when you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do, and if that includes donning a strange outfit and creeping round dark, dank houses carrying some exotic equipment, then so be it. With or without a large dog. Anyway, this Ghost Hunting Starter Kit is probably as good a place to start as any, since it comes with a bunch of gizmos which should help your search run smoother than a spray painted VW combi van.
The EMF meter measures electro-magnetic disturbances (don’t be fooled by the TV), while the motion sensor detects activity in complete darkness, which is where you’ll probably be for most of the time, right? Along with those bits, you’ve got some kind of listening device, a thermometer (the ghosts usually have the flu) and a useful how-to book to deliver handy tips. The price for all this ghoulie paraphernalia comes out at $117.00 plus shipping.
