ParaXplorer Project is a quorum of independent investigators based in Southern California that applies tech-based environmental monitoring, objective observation and intuitive disciplines to an ongoing field study of the paranormal. Founded as a true project, PXP welcomes collaboration with the ghost hunting community in pursuit of knowledge and understanding of what awaits beyond our mortal realm.

Meet SDGAP: Ghost hunting for everyone
SDGAP Founder Dave H. talks to ParaXplorers Sharon and Dawn as they meet at the Ceole Cafe in Old Town San Diego.SDGAP: Ghost hunting for everyone
PARAXPLORER PROJECT members are often asked by the curious how one can start investigating as a hobby. While many established teams either do not recruit new members or prefer the experienced individual, Dave H. has established The San Diego Ghost and Paranormal Group. Affiliated with the MeetUp.com networking website, SDGAP is open to everyone and offers regular group discussions and guest speakers who educate and entertain.

Dave introduces SDGAP and how you can become a member
The San Diego Ghost and Paranormal Group is a MeetUp.com group, created to bring together those with an interest in the paranormal. Since its creation in October of 2007, it has grown from a handful of members to more than 600 members, making it the largest organized paranormal group in the SDGAP: Ghot Ghosts?San Diego region. Unlike most ghost groups, its focus is on discussion and research, rather than investigations. It also delves into topics beyond ghosts, such as shadow people, cryptozoology, and more. There are generally two meetings a month -- a daytime discussion meeting held in a haunted park, and a nighttime meeting held at a variety of locations and usually focusing on a particular topic or guest speaker. Investigations are occasionally undertaken although due to the size of the group, only a small fraction can attend (on a first-come RSVP basis). Because of this, the group encourages its members to make friends with other group members and form their own teams, a practice that seems to work well. Seminars and workshops on basic ghost investigation procedures and tools are done once or twice a year and other special events come on to the schedule on an irregular basis.

Maritime Ghost Conference 2012
SDGAP was also responsible for organizing the first-ever Maritime Ghost Conference 2012, a gathering of speakers presenting history, stories and evidence from fabled haunted ships as a fundraiser for the Maritime Museum of San Diego."

Dave H., SDGAP founder
When asked how Dave got involved in this field, Dave replied the workplace where he is a manager turned out to be haunted. After having a number of very personal experiences there (and hearing many more from others who had their own experiences), he went on to investigate a variety of famous locations and gaining experience working with several investigative teams. Though he still does the occasionally investigate, he now prefers to spend his time home researching and helping the many members of his SDGAP. “Everyone in this field has a particular niche to fill, and SDGAP and I have found ours. I invite all who have a desire to learn about the paranormal to check out SDGAP if you’re in the San Diego area. We’ll see you here!”
