When you search online for paranormal groups you will find countless groups around the world, all of which have their own purpose. Some are thrill-seekers looking for the next scare, some are looking for answers to a past paranormal experience of their own, and some want to help people who are having paranormal encounters, but they all have a purpose.

When we started North Florida Mystery Trackers nearly 9 years ago we had very little knowledge on how to run a team, a website or to find places to investigate, everything started to come together in the first 3 years. In those three years, all of our members were recommended to read a lot on a variety of paranormal subjects, we still do.

Reading is the first step when you decide to enter the world of the unknown. Many people wish to start out by jumping right into a paranormal investigation. Getting to know the field, research and investigation techniques and the many paranormal subjects you will be investigating will help you when it comes to organizing investigations or other group functions.



You don't need to be a member of a paranormal research group to be a paranormal researcher or investigator. However, there are some benefits to having others by your side when staying the night in a spooky haunted place. The paranormal research field isn't for those who are frightened easily, it sounds and looks fun at first but when you find yourself staying the night in a haunted building for 12-24 hours you will have a paranormal experience. it's only a matter of time, the place and how long you wish to continue your journey down this road. but at some point, you will become more open-minded about the idea of ghosts and other paranormal encounters.

In the paranormal research world, we have many, many different types of groups, organizations, clubs, researchers, and investigators. One type is Legend Trippers. Legend Trippers are paranormal researchers who focus on an unlimited amount of paranormal and unexplained phenomenon including mythology and legends. due to this fact they usually don't conduct private paranormal investigations for the public, but instead visit and obtain access to historical landmarks and places that have a reputation for being haunted or connected to some other myth or legend.

Other than having a wide range of paranormal interests, Legend Trippers also focus more on the Location, the encounters, and the history than data collected during the investigation. Legend Tripping is a great way to break into the realm of paranormal research. it's more of a relaxed environment. You can either start your journey with Legend Tripping, by joining a massive paranormal organization or just by doing a little research into the subjects that interest you.

No matter how or why you enter the field of paranormal research, doing so will increase your chances of having a paranormal encounter greatly. Just remember to always obtain access to any place that you wish to investigate. Many places are public and allow for public investigations but some may be private and would require permission from the owner.
