How it all started:In 2006 after many personal experiences Nate Raterman decided to form a team to help others and share his knowledge with everyone interested or experiencing paranormal activity. TRIP PARANORMAL (aka Tri-City Research & Investigation of the paranormal) was founded. Based near Omaha, Nebraska T.R.I.P. consists of people from different experiences and backgrounds, seeking answers and looking for truth behind various unexplained or paranormal phenomena. We explore a variety of ideas, share, learn and listen in a friendly setting. We do not claim to know everything about paranormal phenomena, but together we hope to learn more about this unseen dimension and help bring the field closer to understanding and proving/showing there is life after death.. We are a group of professional researchers who are collecting the most authentic evidence possible of any paranormal activity that we may encounter.

T.R.I.P. MISSION:
The goal of the group is to seek out and authenticate evidence of ghosts, research ghost stories, UFOS, Bigfoot and more. We conduct investigations into paranormal activity in the Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Colorado, Wyoming, Missouri, South Dakota, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas, Florida and beyond. Our quest is to research explainable events by collecting
objective evidence using advanced scientific methodology, equipment and investigative techniques. We go into an investigation with an open mind but we never assume that an event is Paranormal until all the evidence has been reviewed. T.R.I.P. would like to raise the standards of paranormal investigations by not putting out evidence that is "questionable" and easily "debunked". We refuse to embellish our results to fit the expectations of others or grab the attention of the media. We have encountered groups out there who are known to do this, and it hurts the credibility of those of us that strive to present themselves to the public as true paranormal researchers.

T.R.I.P is not affiliated with any other team in Nebraska. ​ Through research, investigation, and experimentation, we hope to bring greater knowledge and greater understanding to the general public free of charge. T.R.I.P. is a safe place where you can share and discuss the experiences you've had with ghosts or spirits, along with anything paranormal or unexplained in the united states.
