Garage of Evil!!

I know it's been too many years since I've been on here, I apologize for that. Been through a lot of life changes, some good some not so good. I know this is kind of off subject and I may ramble a bit, forgive me, this is probably my last post and visit. I want to thank everyone that shared how-to's, I learned a lot. Anyway, to the point, I don't have the strength or endurance to build haunts any longer. I had to move into an apartment so no outside decorating. I am going to be going through a divorce. All my haunt gear is at my future ex-wife's house as I don't have room for it here nor can I afford storage. If she hasn't tossed it all already I will be putting out a curb alert for props and decorations. But the way things have been going even that may be a pipe dream.

Well happy haunting everyone, as the Bloodshed Brothers would say, 'Stay Scary'.

So sorry to hear about your troubles. I hope things will get better!

Papa, 

Sometimes it's OK to "reset". I went through a divorce myself 7 years ago. It happened during my first pro-build, and at the busiest time this site has seen. Left my house with two guitars and hefty bags for suitcases. Less than ideal!

Not a lot of know this know this as I like to keep my private.. well private, but Rob took care of the site for months as I got my life back on track.

It sucked, I assumed Halloween (home haunting) was dead for me.. and then guess what? Life went on. Next thing I knew things weren't as bad as I thought they'd be. I was in a new house soon enough, and starting from scratch was an awesome (if tiring) challenge that turned out great.

Point is, keep your head up. Once the mess is settled, and even if it takes a while to get back, you might be surprised how cathartic it is to build again from nothing. You're a lot better haunter than you were when you started. Your new haunt is gonna way better, it just might take a while to have the space and heart to re-build it.

Thanks Steve O, I don't get too many words of encouragement lately. I hope you're right.  GoE has the best people bar none. At least I have some great memories of make & takes and of the glory days of scaring the crap out of people! Hopefully I will make some new memories in the future.   Steve O said:
