Hundreds of Internet message boards and groups across the nation, with names like Lone Star Spirits and Ghost-Aholics, are dedicated to this eerie pastime. Most ghostly groups have their own Web sites, which are often festooned with cartoon ghosts, spooky grim reapers and creepy music.

The postings range from the paranormal to the very normal. With usernames like stixdeath, Dr. Supernatural and funny farm, message board users announce nuptials, complain about the weather and organize group hunts. One site included a spirited debate over whether phantoms appear in color or just black and white.

Most of the associations share a mission "to investigate the paranormal using scientific methods," says Cody Polston, president of the Southwest Ghost Hunters Association. Many of the sites declare themselves free of Ouija boards, which are frowned upon as unscientific among poltergeist circles.

Along with tracking tips, the sites recommend everything from high-tech equipment like infrared thermometers and electromagnetic field monitors to sturdy shoes and flashlights.

Ghost busters equipped with such gear scour reportedly haunted venues, trying to uncover visual and audio evidence of hauntings and documenting everything they can about their search, including the time of day, weather and temperature.
