    THE cemetery used in Night of the living dead and again in the 2020 election

    See the tower beyond it? You have to go through the cemetery to get to it, at any time.... in every weather.... Not really a problem but a few foggy nights when the deer flash across the front of the truck headlights have caused a pause.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    A Junkyard with impressive names, that's what I felt on Pere Lachaise cemetery,  but that's something European I can understand an Americans perception ;)
    It was an interesting place, for sure. Like GunNut, I like cemeteries and find them nice, peaceful places to walk or just meditate. I've never felt anyone from "beyond the veil" while in one - but I'm notoriously insensitive to such things unfortunately. The old graveyards in NOLA are similar.
    However, I've had dreams and pseudo nightmares about Pere Lachaise for some reason. Its never the same as IRL, but there's always an "evil" part of the graveyard. I've had this dream like 3 times!

    While I was coyote hunting some state land in Kansas we found a little cemetery...actually more accurately a burial site...out on the prairie where several Troopers of the 10th Cavalry (Buffalo Soldiers) were buried following a skirmish with the Cheyenne...neither dark or scary..quite a peaceful little place actually...

    On the other hand...just East of Canton Kansas about 100 yards from the place where Chisolm and Santa Fe Trails intersect is a small cemetery accessible only on foot...most of the folks interred there are pioneers that died on the trail...
    This place is a bit on the spooky side primarily because of the number of infants and kids buried there...not to mention the women who died in childbirth and were interred with their babies. Then there's this guys grave...The original stone is behind the black marble one

    Most of the “scary stuff” that has happens in my area has beef dureing the day. The most high profile shootings, robberies and other major crimes happen in the daylight. We are a “college town” so the night belongs to stupid kids doing drunken stupid things..... 
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Late to the party. Got give the OP props for at least being entertaining. For a former military person, you'd think he'd be a bit more forward thinking. Maybe he worked in Finance.

    Scary places at night. Outdoors I would rather have the full length AR than the M4. The longer barrel will give me more velocity and outside I am not constrained by walls and doorways, the whole reason the M4 was adopted was house clearing. 

    Two. Carry a flashlight. No more spooky things you can't see. Add spare batteries or a pocket 2nd flashlight

    Three Backup gun. Something powerful for the wolves. 357 gets the nod. If I was outfitting for the juncture, then perhaps the 10mm Glock, but probably have the PC carbine and the SR9 since thatis readily nearby.

    Don't overthink it. I honestly think we should him stay just for our entertainment value. What's next?
    - Attacked by light vehicles
    -Scared of the shadow in the closet
    -What do I carry to the Kumbaya and Taco festival

    Stay away from the big dogs.
    Creepy dudes.
    And strange women!

    Being  a bit of a "big dog" myself, I am not too worried about dogs.

    But, creepy dudes ..

    ...and strange women..

    ...that really scare me
