I will also throw this out there, probably not related, but in the same theme.....
This happened the summer before or earlier in the summer than the original post, been too long ago to remember for sure.
A bunch of us kids were sleeping out in a backyard, about 6 of us..... there was a wooden telephone pole in this kids back yard. At some point that night, something came down the pole, several of us saw it and were trying to make out what it was but it was too dark to make out details.... whatever it was, it made it down to the ground and started towards us at which point we jumped up and started yelling.... whatever it was hightailed it back up the pole and disappeared, we got a flashlight and shined it up there but it was gone.... it was about 2 feet tall and hopped kinda like a bird... I always thought that it was some kind of bat.... but we don't have bats anywhere near that big in Western Kentucky.
We didn't spend the rest of that night outside...we were too scared after that.
Now that I think about this stuff...its no wonder I have no desire to camp out as an adult LOL.
