The Writer Will Take Your Questions Now (#213) -- Research Adventures

What non-book research would you most like to do in preparation for your writing?

I love to get down and dirty in the field to research for what I'm working on, and when I was writing about cavernous trolls once I took the opportunity to visit caves and walk through part of the tour with my eyes closed just to be able to write about the feels and smells rather than just sight details.

But the two most adventurous research excursions I'd really love to experience would be:

1. A ride-along with a police detective.

2. A paranormal ghost hunt.

If I could find a police detective on a paranormal ghost hunt, even better, but that might be dropping too big a hint...
