I've had my share of experiences in the woods, I was raised as a girlscout in Mexico (V. important i say it was in Mexico).
There's a place over here where we camp a lot its called "Meztitla" in Tepoztlán, Morelos. I've been camping almost once a month since i was 8 years
old, and in this campsite i've had the strangest things happen to me, i know i am a magnet for everything strange.
Funny thing is that "Tepoz" (short easy name for Tepoztlán) is considered one of the "magic towns" of mexico due to its heritage of Chamanes "shaman
in english?" and Nahuales or people that can turn into animals.
I had an uncle that was Chaman, he used to cure with plants and lived in a huge piece of land between 2 really high hills and whenever the wind passed
between those hills you could hear Sirens sing, i remember being very young and visiting him and listening to the most beautiful "Whistle" ever. This
is how my uncle described it to me, as something "magical" like Sirens singing.
I rarely saw this uncle but i wished i could have spent more time with him for guidance.
Back to the paranormal, enough backstory
I remember camping one time in Tepoz, we were inside the tent trying to sleep, we had a light bulb with an extension cord fixed to a stake so we could
go to the bathroom at night without tripping with something, anyway, the light of that lightbulb hit the side of our tent and i clearly heard a neigh
as a i saw a horse shadow being projected on the tent. We (
like 5 girls around 12 years old) opened the tent and to our surpise nothing was there, i mean horses are fast but at least you hear them galloping
away or stepping on the rocks and twigs of the campsite...
Another time when i was nearly 16 we were camping there too and we were advised to make a "makeshift cupboard" out of broomsticks and rope so we could
put the food in there and elevate it on a tree since dogs were stealing the food. We made it, put the food in it and hung it on a tree and away we
went to our day, when it was time to make dinner i was one of the first girls on the campsite and i saw from afar a cow walking with a dog on its back
up to the tree where we had the food hanging and the dog jumped to the branch and stood in it as he ate the food, people thought i was crazy but a
camp leader later told me to not be scared because it was a Nahual (people that transforms into animals) controlling the cow so he could steal some
food... I mean the camp leader has worked there for decades and he has seen some weird stuff..
And this happened to my brother when he was around 10 years old, he's 22 now, also on the Tepoz campsite:
The leader scout took them on a trail up a hill to have a special "mystic" meeting, you know, where you get your patches and stuff.. they also made
supper up there, when they finished eating they closed their "fire in a tin" but the leader spotted one can that was not closed properly and could
explode so he went to grab it to close it when it exploded on his face, the oldest kid was about 12, imagine having around 15 boys ages 9-12 years to
help you get down the hill with your face burnt---- anyway, the kids were panicking when a dog appeared near their group, the dog was very insistent
they kids followed him, the kids soon realized the dog was runnig back and forth to the path they took so they followed it "as any normal 12 year old
kid panicking would..." The freaking dog led them to the campsite again!! DOWNHILL! there the kids yelled for help, again, the same camp leader knew
it had to be a Nahual that helped those kids... a person disguised as a dog.
I've got hundreds of these, i've seen UFO's, strange beings, ghosts, whatever you can imagine, in those woods.
