What happened at the Skinwalker ranch in chronological order, to the best of my ability:
We arrived at the plateau above where the ranch is located at dusk and I believe all of us felt something from the beginning. Not only that, but a
mechanical sound eminated from the direction of the power lines and it was very distorted and had no particular rythm, After setting up camp in an
area where we would be hidden from detection, we prepared dinner, ate and began talking. By now it was completely dark. As we talked, the conversation
led to what would happen “if” we were caught. Note: all of our energies were on this subject. As we spoke , about one hundred yards (at the most)
away, and virtually upon our camp, we saw red and blue lights, and the “woop” “woop” sound that usually is heard when the authorities want
your attention. Then we heard a very mechanical loudspeaker that sounded exactly like what police use, however it was un-discernable. Whatever was
being said was muffled voice tones and completely foreign, it could not be understood. The tone was right, but there was just something un-natural
about it all. Then it hit us. There were no headlights on the vehicle, no engine sound, and come to think of it no vehicle! It was just the lights and
the sound. There was no police car there! Firstly we would have heard the car approaching, heck, we could hear the cars way out on the main road.
Secondly it would have been impossible to navigate the twisty turny dirt road in complete darkness. Also, It’s quiet enough out there, you can hear
virtually everything happening around you. This display had just appeared and virtually out of nowhere. We all concluded that the malicious entity,
presence, or phenomena, had begun it’s toying with us. It was unreal! We were impressed.
After we had gathered our bearings from having the holy hell scared out of us and realized that the lights had not really even looked like police
lights, but were a “close enough” attempt at representing what we had feared most, it dawned upon us that we were in for a long night, and we
were. Hiii_98 and myself quickly suited up with night vision, recording devices, camcorders, walkie-talkies, and cameras. We first went over to where
I thought the ranch was, and sat for a bit, I was wrong! It was over more to the south. We then ventured around the radius of the camp, and then over
by the main ridge, when I saw a figure standing on a broken saddle of the ridge! It was there for a total of maybe 4 seconds and then slipped down
behind the ridge, I didn’t have enough time to even put my night vision down and grab my 500mm Nikon. I was hosed. Even worse, I then had to explain
to hiii_98 what I had seen and failed to capture. I felt like a bunk researcher. I knew there was not enough time to grab a shot. Unless I could
develop the quick draw skill of Billy the Kid, it was unlikely I was going to have any luck at all at this rate. This wasn’t far from the truth as
things turned out.
We regrouped and went towards camp to settle in for the night. It was harder to sleep than expected but we managed. The next morning we ventured
around and got our bearings. We were running low on ice so we headed in to the closest store. Which is a bit of a drive, but offers some good vantage
points to see where exactly the ranch is located. We then, went over to the entrance of the ranch and snapped a few shots.
After going around the “dead man’s curve” North , we realized an area I thought was part of the ranch where we had seen a dead and partially
mutilated cow was actually a neighboring property, which was actually a good thing, because we had actually and accidentally trespassed,…I think. I
will just plead the 5th on this for now. We realized we were virtually in-line with the property to the north east. That night we gathered up and
equipped ourselves even further with old school film SLR, an EMF meter, 70mm zoom telescope binoculars, night vision, game cam, and walkie-talkies. We
were over burdened. But prepared! As soon as darkness fell, things energized. Hiii_98 and my fiance bravely crossed over the ridge in the direction of
the ranch and I set back, posted up in a sort of satellite camp on the boundary line of some electrical posts. As soon as they had left for 10 or so
minutes, a creepy sound that can only be described as an intensely loud oversized yelping duck screeched in the ravine beside me! After sufficiently
freaking out by myself there in the dark, I radioed to the others and they agreed they had heard the same shriek. I scanned the entire ravine with the
night vision and saw nothing. I waited and waited but that would be the only time we heard the sound. This seemed to be the case with just about all
the phenomena, except one, or two.
The others were still walking further along the skin walker ridge, when I saw what looked like a motorcycle light coming in on what appeared to be the
dirt road. I radioed the others letting them know something was coming in my direction. They heard something completely different over the
walkie-talkie, we had this problem more than once. They heard me say that I saw something coming in their direction and that they needed to get out of
there now! They thought they heard the light was coming toward them, so they began to bolt back to my position. What was odd about the light, was
there was no sound like a motorcycle, then it vanished. Gone!
I saw the two running towards me at a very fast speed. After we had talked for a moment they told me what they heard over the walkie-talkies. I
explained to them that I never said they needed to "get out of there now". In addition, both agreed the walk to where they were was a very quick
walk, but running back took more than twice as long. They both were in amazement of what appeared to be a time lapse of some sort, but we eventually
brushed it off as coincidence. I explained that there was a single white light like that on a motorcycle or a car with just one headlight steadily
making it’s way towards us, then it vanished. They stood there both looking at me like…… “And?” Unfortunately that was all I had.
