Panel Discussion:Haunted Road Trip


Sunday, UWM Ballroom West

Supporting sponsor: Fuel Cafe  (show up early to get a free mini-bag of Fuel coffee, while supplies last!)

: Mike Huberty (See You on the Other Side podcast, Minneapolis Ghost Walks) Panel:  Mike Hoke (Cedarburg Ghost & Dark History Walking Tours), Lisa Van Buskirk (Madison Ghost Walks), Kathi Kresol (Haunted Rockford, author of Murder & Mayhem in Rockford, Illinois).

Pack a lunch, fill up the ol’ gas tank, and hit the open road in search of ghost stories! Our panel moderator is Mike Huberty, who explores the paranormal on a podcast he co-hosts called See You on the Other Side. He also runs a Minneapolis ghost walking tour and will talk to a panel of tour guides and experts that will tell you about some places you can visit within a couple hours drive of Milwaukee.

You’ll hear the lore behind eerie historical locations in Madison, Cedarburg, and Rockford that are open to the public, so you can plan a fall drive to go take a look and explore for yourself.

Book signing

Kathi Kresol has been researching Rockford’s history for the past ten
years. She shares the fascinating stories she uncovers through her website
at , her “Voices from the Grave”column in the Rock
River Times weekly newspaper and through her tours.
Kathi is a member of Rockford Historical Society and has worked at the
Rockford Public Library for years and loves sharing her enthusiasm for
reading any way possible. She started teaching history using ghost stories
when she homeschooled her children. Kathi loved the research and the ghost
stories so much, she wanted to share them with the Rockford community. She
found the perfect solution in forming Haunted Rockford Paranormal Tours.

It has allowed her to work with some great people from all over Illinois
and Wisconsin. Kathi feels honored that she can share the stories of the
men, women, and children who settled Rockford and gave so much to create
such a rich history.
