Owner / Founder of The Pine Bush UFO®. Vinny has been involved with the Pine Bush phenomenon for well over 30 years. After experiencing many encounters with paranormal activity he decided to document what he witnessed in his book "The Pine Bush Phenomenon". In his book he outlined specific and detailed areas that paranormal / UFO activity tends to be of the highest levels.
His search has been a life long quest and he continues to remain committed to finding the "answers" by setting up day and night cameras to watch over the Hudson Valley 24 hours a day. Many of his videos and photos can be viewed on the Pine Bush UFO youtube channel. Vinny still continues to venture up to Pine Bush, NY and continues to witness all different types of phenomenon. He has shared his love of the unknown with his son who now joins him up in Pine Bush hoping to witness some of the area's phenomenons.

How Linda become involved in Ghost Investigating:
Several years ago, Linda was giving a series of history lectures for the bicentennial of Rockland County, in southern New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley. One evening, someone asked about local ghosts and legends, so Linda told the one ghost story she knew. A few days later, she received a call. The excited voice on the other end of the line said, "Are you the ghost lady? I hear you give ghost talks!" Linda then added a few more ghost stories to her lectures, word spread, and by the end of the series, more people were showing up to hear about the ghosts than the history.
"From that point, my research into ghosts took on a life of its own," Linda explains (pun most definitely intended). "At first I just interviewed people who thought they had seen a ghost, but then the scientist in me wanted to personally conduct investigations."
Also part of the Core skywatching group in the 1990s, C. Burns started gathering accounts of unusual activity upon his becoming familiar with the Pine Bush area, eventually accumulating a noteworthy record of reported anomalous phenomena. Comparing this to other areas with similar reported phenomena, as well as other types of experiences such as hauntings, he started the Archive effort to produce a body of information that would be useful to both the anomaly researcher and those interested in local folklore.
