about our Highwayman

David H. Lowery is a lifelong enthusiast, researcher and investigator of the paranormal. Everything from simply studying and reading, to extensive field work and travel. He tells of reading his first book as an elementary school student, a book called An Incident at Exeter  (John G. Fuller-1965) and that set him off on a quest for knowledge of, and to see a UFO. Later in his teenage years, he received a new shotgun for Christmas and spent afternoons in the woods. There his interest in Bigfoot developed. After what may have been a scary encounter, his focus shifted to ghosts at around 17, when he had an experience with Rudy, the famous ghost of the The Lake Club, a wildly popular historic nightclub in Springfield IL. Things became serious around 2008, when David decided to devote more time to his research. His thoughts formed a plan to travel the highways of America looking for the paranormal, the history, and the people. He was aware that every small town, hotel,  ; bar, even dangerous curves All those kinds 0f places held secrets, urban legends, historic happenings, wars and disease. Plus, all existed near the ribbons of asphalt criss-crossing the land. Friends learned of his plans and coined the nickname Paranormal Highwayman, and it stuck with him. The rest, as they say, is history!
