Hello all, I feel like I have got to a point where I can share with you an unusual event that happened to me last July. Now by no means, if I see
something odd, do I automatically put it down to the unexplained, Cryptozoology etc. I consider myself a skeptical believer, in that I want to look at
obvious reasons before looking to the fantastical ones.
I was in the Nevada desert in a van with 10 other people, we were on our way to Vegas to play a show. It was the early hours of the morning, and all
but myself, the driver and one other person were asleep. Having never been to the desert before, I was totally awestruck by its beauty, especially on
a moonlight night, it was perfect. Now I sat directly behind the driver. It was a 13 seater Dodge van (I think, I forget now). I sat there so I could
keep him on his toes with conversation without waking the others up.
We were just driving along a very straight stretch of road when suddenly something huge swooped down out of the darkness right at us up the front of
the van and disappeared over the top of us. I shouted 'what the **** was that?' and managed to wake the others in the process. The driver saw it to,
as it made him swerve instinctively. I can honestly say it scared the poop out of me. It was very quick, so unfortunately my description is a little
vague. It was brown in color, I am pretty sure of that. It filled the entire windshield for a second,as it came down into the lights and up the front
of the van. I braced myself as I thought an impact would be inevitable. As I say it was quite quick, so I could'nt ascertain any features, but it was
long enough for me to know that it was at least the width of the van, if not wider.
Now as I say, i'm not going to be all 'omg it was a Thunderbird' or anything, but I have to admit, I would like to try and find out what it was,
and if it was some native desert animal or bird, I would like to just satisfy my curiosity. It may have scared me, but boy, what a great story it
here is a pic of the van we were driving, so you can get an idea of size:
I did post this on another board I belong to, but I thought I would post it here too, to see what others thought.
