i got one hell of an urban legend for you, and im pretty sure its true, because it happened to me yesterday!
the reason im writing this is because after it happened i had one of those, "wait a minute!...what if?"
yesterday me and 2 friends decided we wanted to go hiking in the middle of the florida everglades...so we gathered up some basic hiking gear and off
long story short..after hiking for about 2 hours the sun started setting and we got lost, the brush was so thick that we could barely stick our hands
out in front of us...*note to self NEVER hike in the middle of the everglades*
thankfully one of my friends was in the army and he knew some basic navigation so he lead us to our parked car, but there was a problem....our car was
about 50 ft directly in front of us...to our left and right and behind us there was nothing but thick everglades sawgrass brush...
so here we are, we finally made our way out and have sight of our car, but the problem was that in front of us was about a 12-15 ft deep canal, that
im sure contained alligators, and god knows what else...
so in order to cross to our car, we had to chop a tree down, and lay it across the canal to get to our car, so we start chopping away when suddenly my
freind says "do you hear that?....get down!"..sure enough the sound of an atv is heard in the distance and it starts approaching us...so we get down
and the sound gets closer...finally the sound stps right where my parked car is and here we are laying on the ground...
finally the atv leaves the area...we get back up, we chop the tree down and we get across to the car...but as we clear the final shrubs to get to our
car there is a "police officer" waiting for us with his gun drawn at us...he asked us if we had any guns, and what we were doing there... i told him
we had no guns just knives, and we were just hiking...
heres the part that got me though...he said to us as he escorted us out of the entrance... he said "dont you boys know who lives out here?" we said
no... he says "well theres a crazy man that lives out here, and he likes to impersonate cops, and kidnapp people and take'em back to his place and
dismember them and feed their body parts to his live stock, you guys shouldnt be around here wondering around its dangerous, y'know what i mean?"
me and my friends said yes and quickly got in our car and left... thinking back the "officer" never had a badge or name tag...and was driving around
in an atv, in the middle of the everglades...
what if that cop was actually the crazy man that likes to impersonate cops and kidnapp people and kill them?
lets just say im never going back to that patch of woods again
