BigManAndy Been a long time since anything out of the ordinary has happened until today. Little back stock my Grandma had a stroke over the summer, a very minor one which she has recovered from very well but she needs a cane to walk and can't do stairs so she can't get into her basement. A bunch of the family went over there tonight to help paint. Me, my folks, 2 aunts and 2 cousins. We're all in the basement painting the concrete blocks of the foundation since it's a completely unfinished basement, and just cleaning up the place. Since the family is mostly female the girls were doing the usual gossiping and general girl talk so I was minding my own business when out of the blue a voice whispered in my ear. All I could make out was "I can't........" the rest was jibberish I couldn't make out. Everyone else was about 6 feet from me lolly gagging and the voice sounded like it was right over my shoulder on my left but no one was near me on that side. It sent instant chills across my body as I whipped around to see if I could find a source but everyone else was deep in conversation not involved with me. I've heard sounds and voices before, never in that house, and none ever sounded that close and direct to me like this.

thewampus97tj Camping in east TN in the winter time my buddy and I decided it was a good idea to camp on top of the mountain in the winter time. We were near an old fire tower where some locals go to drink beer and raise hell. We decided to scare them and I let out this deep roar similar to a bear... They get quite and take off. My buddy and I sit by the fire sipping shine and laughing about how we scared them then we hear some large trees limbs break. I would say it was a bear that we called in on us but we didn't hang out long enough to find out. We threw our tents in the back of the truck and hauled ass to get out of there.[/QUOTE] that would be Cove Mountain would it not? Found a burnt out ford exploder up there once...[/QUOTE] nope it was on English mnt. In cocke county if that tells you anything hahaha

Airstreamer67 My eerie moment was deep in the woods. It was a very foggy morning, one of those days that driving on the highway was dangerous.

Anyway, I made it to a spot I had never been before. It looked like a good place for game.

I got out of the Jeep and was slowly stalking down an animal trail when through the fog I saw what looked like a Cross! This stopped me in my tracks, and I kept staring at this thing, wondering if it was just a combination of brush that looked like a manmade object through the fog.

After a couple of moments, I moved closer and slowly realized it was manmade. But here in the middle of a forest!!??

When I got up to the cross, it had a guy's name written on it, along with a date which was a year or so in the past. Kind of like those highway markers where people were killed in accidents.

My guess is that the poor bloke was killed on the site, probably in a deer-hunting accident.

I backed out of there and returned to my Jeep and had a cup of coffee.

deathdealer687 I was out wheeling with a friend and he always would set his wallet wedged between the dash and windshield. Normally it would stay put but this time it flew out and went off the trail. We pulled over and went looking for the wallet. Down about 20 feet below us, under a tree we were slightly above, there was a very wrecked vehicle. It was so crumpled that the only thing that gave us a clue to what kind it was was the J and e from the broken Jeep logo on the back of it. The wallet was sitting on top of it. When he grabbed the wallet, we both heard someone say "Can you help me?" There was nobody around. We searched for about an hour for someone. Once we got cell service, we called the police and reported the vehicle and found out that about 15 years earlier, someone had rolled a Cherokee off that trail and their body wasn't found for 3 days. We haven't been back since.

It actually was a guy on a bicycle on the interstate, so not sure if alcohol played a roll or not. Happened on I90 near Bozeman MT.

Angles walk among us !

Am new to the forum, Just signed on because am thinking of buying a JK.
Here is a TRUE story.

Back in the early 90s I was really down on my luck. No job which means no income. I was falling behind on my car payments. I had to move out of my apartment and was sleeping on my brother couch. Every day looking for work.

You get the picture, Just going thru a very rough time in my life.

I was driving back to my brothers house one afternoon when I stopped off in a large park that had a duck pond, picnic tables and walking paths.
I parked my car and went to a near by picnic table to collect my thoughts.
As I was sitting at the table watching people feed the ducks out of the corner of my eye I see and older gentleman with gray hair walking my way.

It struck me a funny because it's like this guy came from outta no where. Within in a few seconds he was standing in front of me and asked if he could sit down at the table
"Sure" have a seat I said. I looked around and asked "Where did you come from" ?
He chuckled and pointed "from over there" Meaning the walking path I guess.
In and instant I felt as if I have known this old man my whole life.

He asked me out of the clear blue "what was on my mind" and I began to open up to him with a whole list of s**t.

As I was venting to him he stopped my in the middle of a sentence and said I know your troubles and am here to help. Oh really I said !

Then he started quoting bible verses to me in such a way it was as if he could see right thru me.
He touched on every thing that was going on in my life. We must have talked for about 30 to 45 mins.
Touching on every aspect of faith and well being. He did most of the talking I just listened.

He asked if I would pray with him, I said yes and bowed my head.

This man was talking to god like he was his personal assistant. To this day I have never heard anything like it.

When he finished we both stood up from the table and started walking back to my car, I thanked him for his time and all the encouraging words he had to say to me.

I opened up my car door, shook his hand, sat down in the car, closed the door, rolled down the widow, looked out to say goodbye, and he was gone. and I mean gone. I got out of the car, walked around and this guy had vanished.
I keep saying to myself "There is no way he could leave my field of view that fast.
It took a few days for all of this to sink in but I truly believe that I was speaking with and angel.

Bbannongmu In the early 90s Me and my buddy were offroading in central PA near some state game lands when all of the sudden we come out of the woods into a clearing with a bunch, like 6-8 crappy trailers with scary looking dirty, toothless hill people sitting around giving us the evil eye. One of them had a power company truck - not sure it was legit or not. They were squatting on state land and had run their own power lines from the road over 3 miles away. They even had a hand a hand crank water pump. We waived and moved on. They looked like they wanted to kill us. The next time we came back ( heavily armed ) a few months later, they were gone.

Another time in central PA about 30 miles from Altoona we stumbled on a little town of 12 or so old houses with no roads just a dirt path that was mostly hidden by weeds and trees. Probably 5 miles from a major road. The houses were all dilapidated with old cars in front of them. There were old fire hydrants and remnants of sidewalks from a bygone era. Every mailbox on the "town" had the name Schafer on them. I would have liked to see the mailman. We didn't see anyone around and we didn't stay long. Went to look for the town again later but couldn't find it.

Another time I broke a hub while truck camping and got stuck in the hills during the winter. Me and my buddy were the creepy bearded, unkept freezing guys who stumbled on some kid driving solo on an old fire road in the middle if the night and the middle if nowhere for some reason (we never asked) and flagged him down.We were all dirty and cold and he actually asked us if we were gonna kill him when we first invited ourselves in to his truck. He gave us a ride home 20 miles out of his way. We gave him 2 cases of beer and $20.

jumplikeawillys -Who would steal 30 bag lunches?

-I'll tell you who it was it was that damn sasquatch
08-14-2014 07:53 PM
Big Cole We had an encounter with Sasquatch at night while camped out on a jeep trail near bowman lake off of hwy 20 in norcal. Bastard came into our campsite and ignored all of the meat in our coolers. Instead he grabbed a loaf of bread, undid the twisty tie, and removed every piece of bread without tearing the plastic bread sleeve. When we heard the squatch coming down the mountainside three of is hid in a two man tent. I can still feel the squatch breathing on my face through the nylon tent.

Went back to that area many times after the incident but never had another encounter with squatch.

sgpd1sam In Dumont Dunes,CA I was out with my kid and a friend. It was very late and we had a fire going. Just us, nobody else around. Out of the shadows comes a hooded figure asking for help. We did a double take, thinking we had a ghost on our hands and neither of us believe in them. He stopped outside the light the fire provided and again asked for help. Since we were both cops we didn't spook too easy and told him to come into the light where we could see him. Long haired teen with a hoodie. Turned out his family had got stuck in the sand and he was sent to find some help. We took care of em but it was a little unnerving to have somebody walk out of nowhere when you're pretty sure you're the only ones around.
Another time we were out looking for Charlie Manson's old place near Death Valley. Literally In the middle of nowhere having lunch, miles away from anything, and this solo guy just comes walking on the trail like he was out for a Sunday stroll. He was a journalist from Europe doing research on Manson. He got to a point where his car wouldn't go any further so he got out and walked to the cabin. Miles away! Said he hadn't come to America to get defeated so he took off on foot with no clue of the conditions. We helped him out, too and got him back to his car but it was truly a WTF moment.

ThePeaches289 I was out mushroom hunting a few years back and stumbled upon a rifle on the corner of my property (a road is about 20 feet uphill). It didn't appear to be there long. Kept looking for anything else in that area and I immediately found 2 other guns and a laptop. The laptop still had a sticker with a name and address on it. The sticker was faded but you could still see what it said. Called the local sheriffs office.

When they arrived they ran the name and address from the laptop. The name belonged to a woman who was murdered. Very creepy and chilling.

laredo Two weeks ago i let my 70 lb. Male black lab outside before i went to bed and he came back to the door in a hurry wanting in. It was pretty obvious he didn't like something out there so I grabbed the 12 gauge and stepped outside but didnt hear or see anything so we went back inside. The rest of the night he wouldn't leave my side for any reason, if i stood still he would sit at my feet and watch the doorway of whatever room. I've never seen him that scared before or since. Not sure what it was that freaked him but if my dog doesn't like something, i dont like it.
