A couple of years ago I experienced something very strange as well. I had been to my son's house and it was now mid afternoon. I headed home. I was traveling from West to East. I came to a "round about", when suddenly I felt like I had past into a different zone, or plain. It was very strange, and very difficult to explain. It was surreal. To this day I think about it, especially every time I drive around that round about.

Friday evening my 15 yr old daughter and I left our home at 5 pm. We followed the same route as always off to my parents in Southern Ohio for the weekend. The trip always takes 4 hours. No more no less.
My daughter and I were having a great conversation with our puppy Clyde sleeping in the backseat. We were only about 30 minutes into our trip. We were talking and laughing and nothing out of the ordinary. The is the last thing both of us remember.
When we realized something was strange, our puppy was barking his high pitch Jack Russell terrier bark and my daughter just looked at each other. I noticed we were ALOT farther up the road (about 60miles) father than we should have been. I thought I had blacked out or something. I didnt mention it to my daughter but she immediately said to me "Mom, I know this sounds weird, but the last thing I remember is we were talking about Frankie. (a boy she likes). How did we get here already?" I told her I had no idea.
I looked at the clock and only 20 minutes had gone by from the time I last remembered. (530 and it was now 5:50). We were miraculously WAY up the highway almost a full hour ahead of schedule. In order for me to drive that distance 60 miles (approximately) in 20 minutes I would've had to have been driving at 180 mph. I drive a Kia. Impossible.
I called my husband. I didnt tell him anything except I didnt feel so well but he asked where I was. I told him and he said "How the heck did you do that".
I started crying. I dont remember how we got there and neither does she. We both blew it off, but it is obvious something strange happened. My daughter starts telling him on the phone the story and now he thinks I am nuts and that I influenced her to believe the impossible.
I dont know what happened or why. I just know SOMETHING happened.
We arrived at my parents house at 810 pm. We should have arrived at 9 pm or so. (depending on stops for potty, etc).
Another strange fact, it takes exactly 1/2 tank of gas to get to my parents house. The gas guage was sitting on about 2/3 full. So I didnt use as much gas.
I am not professing to know what happened. I just need to know if this has ever happened to anyone else?
I have felt "off" since then. I cant concentrate and I cant sleep. I am hoping someone out there can maybe tell me what we experienced or tell me if I need a good pyschiatrist and to enter my Kia in NASCAR.
