I'll add my two cents in.......I spend alot of time out in the woods, hunting, fishing, and running around checking out the country. Sometimes by myself, sometimes with my dad or other family members but I still remember the most paranoid I've ever been out in the woods....

I was about 17 at the time and was hunting with my grandfather and uncle in a place called Rhody Ridge. Basically a big bowl of trees with 6-10 foot tall bushes all through it but usually a ton of deer in there. It has a road below it and one above it. My uncle dropped me off at the top and I jumped out and headed down with the intent that he would pick me up at the bottom.

I was on the hunt but about 1/3rd of the way down started getting creepy chills going up my spine with the hairs on my neck standing up. I started stopping more often and could hear twigs snapping and brush moving up the hill where I had been. I finally said screw it and made a beeline for an open area and dropped straight down the hill and hit the road.

Needless to day I was on the bottom road before my uncle and got a hardtime for it. I told him what I'd felt/heard up there and he laughed. So the next day I talked him in to going with me on the same walk.

We hit the same point about a 1/3 of the way down in which I'd started hearing stuff I couldn't see. Needless to say there were very large cougar tracks in my tracks I'd made the day before. Not just crossing my tracks but following my tracks most of the way down the hill. My uncle didn't make fun of me after that.

Never had that feeling before or since then.....

About 7 months ago, I went out camping in Utah near the great American fork. It was me and my dad and my Beagle/bulldog mix bailey, and we were to go fishing the next day. So we wheel out about 2 miles into the forest near the stream to setup camp. The whole way their something just felt off. It was one of those feelings like everything was telling us not to go that day. The battery had died that morning, the winch failed halfway out, and we had gotten a flat. Looking back we should've turned around. We kept going and when we finally made it to what was suitable to set up camp, my puppy was whining and wouldn't let off a scent she had picked up. We let her follow it about 100 feet out, walking with her and then the trees got real thick and the light wouldn't come through. She stopped and sat their staring like she was locked onto something with her senses. Me and my dad looked around and he called out for anyone who may be around. No answer. Called again, no answer. We circle the trees in the light, and my puppy Bailey wouldn't go near the dark past the last rays of light. Something just felt odd. It was almost like the light was our last protection. My dad and I got Bailey to follow and we went a couple steps into the darker area. All of a sudden it just felt evil, like a huge weight over my body. Bailey was going crazy. I clenched my cross around my neck and started to pray with my father out loud slowly backing out of the clearing with my father and puppy next to me. Once into the light again the weight let off and I heard a horrible faint two voiced laugh. I drew my pistol for safety and called out, still praying holding my cross with my other hand. No response. We made our way back to the area we planned to camp at and packed up. We got into my dads old cj7 and drove back the way we came. The supernatural feeling dwindled and the sun was starting to go down. The darker it got in that forest, the stronger the evil felt. We made it out of the forest, and I haven't been back since.

From then on I do not camp overnight, I am always armed, and I always no matter what listen to my dogs and instincts.

A Great Iron Maiden song for this thread

I am a man who walks alone And when I'm walking a dark road At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change I sometimes feel a little strange A little anxious when it's dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark I have a constant fear that something's Always near Fear of the dark, fear of the dark I have a phobia that someone's Always there

Have you run your fingers down The wall And have you felt your neck skin crawl When you're searching for the light? Sometimes when you're scared To take a look At the corner of the room You've sensed that something's Watching you
Have you ever been alone at night Thought you heard footsteps behind And turned around and no one's there? And as you quicken up your pace You find it hard to look again Because you're sure there's Someone there

Watching horror films the night before Debating witches and folklore The unknown troubles on your mind Maybe your mind is playing tricks You sense, and suddenly eyes fix On dancing shadows from behind

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark I have constant fear that something's Always near Fear of the dark, fear of the dark I have a phobia that someone's Always there

When I'm walking a dark road I am a man who walks alone

We went out of town one weekend to visit relatives and my dad insisted on leaving Fluffy in the garage over the weekend. When we got back, I opened the garage door and Fluffy had somehow broken the cage door and escaped from her cage. She knocked over a storage bin where we held gas, oil, etc. for the lawnmower and when she saw me, she ran over and starting licking wildly at the gas on the floor. I suspect now that we had forgotten to leave her enough water for the whole weekend. Fluffy kept licking the gasoline like a wild animal and then she just starting running around in circles yelping and yelping and then she just suddenly stopped. You'll never guess what happened...






She ran out of gas! Hahahahahahahahahahaaaa....




I don't care who you are, that ^^^ is funny!

The arid climate had given his body a mummified look and there were minor signs of animal damage to the body around the extremities. I saw his backpack and went through it and his driver's license was expire by 3 years at the time I found him. There was no sign of foul play and he looked at peace so I left him there and continued on to Moab. Never called the cops, never reported it to anyone.

Wife and I were in Utah last summer and I tried to find the place again. I had no clue where to go, how to find the place, or even if I was on the right side of the mountain. I've always thought of a death like that as being a very peaceful way to go.
Thats so wrong dude, maybe his family has been looking for him? Maybe his kids wonder, where has daddy has gone... You should have reported it... You should report in now, at least this way if anyone is out that way they can keep an eye open for a lost soul. I know that I would want to know what happened to my loved one, and not wonder if they are still alive or not, or if they were brutally murdered or just died peacefully...

I was riding shotgun in my Dads JK on the way back from Kentucky, when we passed a red minivan, the kind that squeaks and shakes as it's going down the road. As we passed I looked in the window and saw a sight that is still etched in my mind. Driving that minivan was two CLOWNS! Full blown, creepy grin, big wig clowns. We got out of there fast...
If your ever in the Florence SC area, stop by Old Gunn Church. (Prince Frederic's might be the real name) Old ruined Gothic Church. Supposed to be haunted by Old Gunn the architect who fell off the roof and died. They say you can hear the choir singing at dusk.

We were running Miller trail here in LA. We stopped in a nice Wooded clearing near a stream to have lunch. Someone had brought in a really nice steel table with bench seats and a perforated top. Well we all got things out of our 5 jeeps and set up the table. After the ladies had set things up we all sat down to eat. I was sitting about 3 feet away and was about halfway thru lunch when I noticed we had an uninvited guest with us at the table. I got everyone to slowly get up and move back. After a bit of poking he woke up and left for his burrow. Needless to say we broke camp.

That's cool.

Not really from the trail, but anyone ever seen the Hornet Spook Light near Joplin, MO?
Me and a buddy were down there and seeing the glowing tumbles of light and he told me he thought he saw a girl carrying a lantern. That's one of the legends...that a young bride was lost there and died while looking for her husband who didn't come home after chores one night. Only this guy with me didn't know the story until I told him--after he'd seen the girl with the lantern.

Red face my weird story

He was at the entry point, in a 4 foot by 4 foot guard shack, for the ramp area, where they parked the F-4s, while I was the roving patrol for that area. We were the only ones working in that area that night, when the fog rolled in. It came in really thick, so thick that if you held your arm straight out in front of you, you couldn't see your hand.

I had parked the truck across from the guard shack, checking the inside of my eyelids for leaks, when the next thing I know, my friend is pounding on the driver's window. I asked where I had been and I told him right here. He asked if I had been over to shack, I said no. He then said that's wierd. He said that he had been in the shack and put a cigarette in his mouth. He was getting his lighter out of his pocket, when a lighter came out of the fog, and lit his cigarette. He said thanks and the lighter went out. He said he never saw anyone, never heard the door open or close, and when he turned on the light in the shack, there was no there.

Hey, bro. Reading this reminded me of what happened to me at the base I was stationed at in Atlantic City, NJ. I was on the main gate at apx 0200-0300 hrs. It was pouring rain out and I saw a woman in a blue dress walking up to the gate. It was extremely odd so I radioed it in and was advised to push the lockout button on my radio so they could hear everything. When she got to the window, I got my rifle out of the rack and met her at the door. She just stood there for a minute staring at me, so, I started asking if she needed help and why she was there. Then, I noticed her clothes weren't wet and I started to really get creeped out. She asked me to use the phone but I only had a direct line to dispatch in the shack, so, I just told her I didn't have one. She just kept staring at me like she was staring through me. Just as she started to turn and walk away, I saw the headlights from our mobile response team coming. She got just past the gate and disappeared. It was lighted and covered by recording surveillance cameras. I was relieved and went with the mobile team to search for her, along with the state police and the local PD. We all searched for her for 2 hrs but couldn't find anything. That road is miles from anything and lined on both sides with 10' fence with tangled barb wire on top. No place to hide anywhere. Two weeks later, same time and conditions, another guard, who was a rookie that had just arrived and knew nothing of my situation, saw the same lady, same blue dress, dry, in the corner of the fence. He locked his radio on and challenged her and we all heard her say, "You will die." She then turned around, started walking away and disappeared again. We held another search and found nothing. We compared the footage of both and you could see the same lady there and then just fade away in both. You could also her her in both audio recordings. I tried to get copies a few weeks later but I was told they no longer existed. It still creeps me out when i think about it.

I was in a group camp site here in Ohio. We were all in the tent asleep and for some reason I woke up(I don't remember why) I was laying there half asleep when I hear whooping. When I say whooping I mean like that of a howler monkey. I was glued to the ground with fear. I had hear tales of the grassman (AKA Big Foot) being sited around this county before so needless to say to my young imagination he was going to come storming into the campsite and kill us all.. kinda funny when I think back to that time.

The worst horror story of them all:
Every year my wife and I have our own "week". She goes on a camping trip with her friends, and I go on mine. They have a place and I have our farm.

Weeks ago a few friends and I took the 2.5hr trek to my farm in Southern, KY.

We get to the the makeshift campsite, setup everything. Dig our hole for fire. Establish the off-limits bathroom areas. Get out stuff together and head down to the creek for some fishing.

We did alright fishing and came back to the campsite. Settle down. start our fire and do what men do on camping trips.

The time was right and we all knew it, beer time. Time to tell overinflated stories. Play my story is better, one-up each other, and some white lies about how big it was... I walked to the trailer and opened it up, pulled out my Cooler with wheels and drug it over to the campfire.

I open it up. And a bone chilling draft went up my back. My hair stood on it's end. Goosebumps all over. There I was staring at the most horrific scene I've ever come across.

Diet Coke, Baked salt free chips, fat free starbucks coffee things...

My wife and I have identical coolers.

I broke out in a cold sweat.

My farm is in a dry county, and the 2 surrounding counties where dry.

I'll never forget that experience for the rest of my days.

I'm on the highway... right now actually. But probably a good 30miles away from where it happened thankfully.

Driving from Rockport to Houston. About 1 hour in. It starts to get foggy. Wasn't bad. I could see really well. But then I drove into a cloud. I couldn't see anything at all. And I was in it for like half a second. But as soon as I went thru, my engine died. Turns back on after like 5 minutes. But dies the same way after a few minutes. I drove back towards Rockport for like 20 minutes. Turning her on and off. To get out of that area. now sitting on side of road... waiting for help.

My farm is in a dry county, and the 2 surrounding counties where dry.

I'll never forget that experience for the rest of my days.
I felt chest pains, just reading this! Horrible situation!

I know one of my scariest adventures was working security at a halfway house that used to be a TB Hospital back in the 50-60s when they still used electro shock therapy. Down in the basement there is still the body chute leading underground to the crematorium. Me being on patrol decided to bring my phone on rounds the first time to see if I could catch anything. After an hour I listened with headphones and heard knocking even though in that section there are no doors. Just the door frames. That same night I was upstairs in a no window hallway and all the residents doors were closed per policies. Once I got to the top of the stairs, my hairs all over stood on end and I couldn't shake the feeling someone or something was watching/following me. I got back to base and my co workers and shift lead asked if I felt anything. Told them yea and asked why. They told me to check out the security footage for that area. Nearly crapped myself when I saw a shadow standing behind me. It's like when your facing away from the sun but it still casts that long shadow. That morning after shift I asked around and rumor is there is a 9 year old girl who wanders the hall. Next night I bring my recorder and end up doing a 5 hour in the same spot where I left my phone. What scared me the most was the children's drawing on the ceiling that I didn't notice before. Fast forward 5 hours, no drawing on the ceiling. I listened with headphones that night with my fiancé and I caught voices, a scream, a conversation, gurney/cart being pushed over the concrete, and doors slamming. That place no matter which section of the basement you were in, it always felt like someone or something was watching you. And on top of it, you constantly smelled cigarette smoke like someone was smoking when the only way to get down to the basement is with keys. Creepy as hell but sadly I don't work there anymore.

I dont know how spine tinglingly scary this is, but it sure was interesting to me.
Several years ago while still on active duty in the USMC I was part of a three day training exercise on a large piece of private land. Basic premise was two opposing forces set up camp nearly 5 miles apart, send out patrols, recon, etc. And a force is left behind to defend camp.
I was part of a small recon team that was traveling by foot at night. We had moved about 3 miles up rather rough terrain and came to what seemed to be a good place to rest for a few minutes. One of my team members sat down and leaned back against what we thought was a rock outcrop. As he leaned his rifle against it, there was a definite metal on metal clank. We cleared some brush and found a rather small (3 foot by 4 foot) heavy duty steel door. We were not near an actual trail and had been pretty much blazing through some rough terrain since we left camp. We decided to mark the spot and go back the next day to check it out.
The following day three of us returned and found the door was unlocked. We crawled in to what appeared to be a VERY long tunnel carved in to the size of this hill. It opened up in to several rooms that had shelving along the walls, a few small cots, some small tables, very old lanters and some very old maps and weapons. In a far corner we found two large sets of bones from what appeared to either be horses or mules.
After spending most of the afternoon taking pictures and taking notes about what we found we returned to camp and showed the pictures to one our XO. He called the property owner who claimed to have had no idea that this was on his property.
Turned out to be a Civil War bunker. Afer we had left, they found a small cemetery near by and a name carved in to a rock matched one of the names written on a map we had found.

Not a thread to read at night... I hate these stories cuz you don't know if they're real. Maybe that why I like creepy movies... Cuz I know it's fake...

I have not yet found anything unusual on the trails in my Jeep.

But I have a story or two told to me by my Mom.

She used to work on the Carlisle Barracks at the Letort View community club. It used to be just the Officers club. It had been around since the war of 1812. She worked the night shift cleaning, and would take my lil brothers along on friday nights. They all saw the lights in the chandeliers. Hear music, dresses, and sabers rattling. They would set a chair in the middle of the floor in the attic and watch it shoot across the room.

She told me about the night the staff was getting ready to clock out and she was clocked in. One of them smelled smoke. they all went looking around when they noticed light from the basement. Calling the Base FD. the fireman opened the door there at the bottom of the staircase was a line of candles it went to the back of the basement. they put them out as they were leaving they commented that whoever did it managed to lite them all so that they burnt the exact amount. it was a 40 foot long line.

The Army did something rather interesting that they will neither confirm nor deny. They cleared out the basement and laid out white paper with powder on it. Locked the basement and posted Guards that night. the next morning there was foot prints, boot prints and a perfect impression of a Sharps rifle on the paper.

there was about 10 of us riding dirt bikes on trails that always has someone there.the land owner will lock the gate but we still get in.on this day we noticed a car sitting off to one side.it was a nice car and one that would normally never be in this trype of terrain.one of the ladies walked by the car and screamed.we all rsn to the car and stood in awe. some guy had pulled in here and blew his head off with a shotgun.i mean there was no head. someone called the local police but we still never stopped on the trails until they roped off the area and made us leave

In the mid-80's, when I had my first Jeep, I was out trail riding late one night with some friends. One had an F-150, one had a K5 Blazer, and one had an El Camino. It didn't take long for the El Camino to get buried to the axle in some deep sand. While we were out digging and hooking-up to the El Camino, I was complaining about a dead animal smell. A few days later, a woman's body was found roughly 20 feet off the trail from where we were.
