This thread is as much for me as for you guys. It is a personal experience and the only proof I have is my words. For every time I mention a specific
landmark (dirt path, rent house, etc) refer to the diagram at the end of the post.
Tonight at approx. 11:15 PM CST I went for a drive. I had driven for almost a mile, to the stop sign at the end of my road, which runs North and
South. There, you have the option to turn left or right. I was lighting a cigarette and watching a couple cars make their way from the West. They both
had their turn signals on and turned onto the road where I was stopped. They were heading South. They took the turn very slowly, and didn't accelerate
much after the turn. The cars were late 80s early 90s vehicles. Taking a guess, I'd say Mercedes or BMW. They had this type of body:
The cars didn't appear to be the same make or model, but were similar. They were lighter colored, one being a light brown or tan, the other looked
like a cool color. Perhaps a light blue or gray, it was hard to tell by moonlight.
At any rate, I just got a weird feeling. I can't explain why. I just felt like I should go and keep tabs on them. This feeling isn't entirely
unfounded, the road I live on has a long history of break-ins, and my whole family is living on this road now so I'm a bit paranoid.
So, I turned right (East) from the stop sign and went about 50 yards to the next turn, pulled in, pulled out, and went back to the road I had come
from. The one that two cars should have been on.
I got back on the road, went over a couple hills and twists and caught sight of one of the cars. The other was gone, apparently. The weird thing about
that was, there's nowhere to turn that isn't a house or a dead end. I didn't think about that though, as I was focused on the car I was seeing.
Now, it should be established that I live in the middle of nowhere. This road is, by no means, busy. It's mostly gravel. There are 5 houses on the
road, all occupied and 3 by my family.
The road, at all points other than driveways and the dead end road, is flanked by 4 cord barbwire fence. That is important information.
Back to the car. I'm watching it casually, as if it's more of just something to do. I see it take a left (east) turn. That should have been impossible
because there's nowhere to turn East. The only place would have been my Grandparent's driveway, and the car appeared to be past that; or McIntosh rd.
The latter would have been impossible for me to see because of the slight hills in the road, the car would also have had to have been much farther
away from me. We later tested this theory, and I was proven correct. So, my first thought was that the car had turned left and was going to back
across the road and either A) Make a U turn, or, B) back into the Rent house driveway. My depth perception told me, though, that the car was probably
past the rent house driveway. The car didn't back up. It sat there. Then, the lights went out and the car disappeared. So my next thought was that
someone was either A) Having sex, or, B) sneaking into my grandfather's pond to fish.
As I drove, I checked each driveway (Mother's house, Grandparent's house, and the rent house), this car was not present in any of them. I checked the
side of the road, no car, no signs of a car. I got to the dirt path into the pasture, the gate was secure and undisturbed. No vehicle had been in or
out. I got to my house, turned around and went back. Nothing. No lights, no cars.
I called my friend, Bill. He came out, I explained what had happened and we decided to do some tests. I drove back to approx. where I was when I saw
the car turn and he drove toward me. This is when I was sure that I couldn't see it if it had turned down McIntosh Rd. Vehicles were invisible to me
beyond the dirt path, because of the gradient of the road.
I drove up and down the road several times. The whole time I was doing this (probably 30 minutes) I never saw another vehicle.
I drove down the dead end, saw nothing.
I literally can not explain this one, guys. I even checked the places that I couldn't have seen and found no car that matched what I had seen.
In my diagram here, the black dot on the road is my car, the red dot is the vanishing car, the red lines on the road are supposed to represent
gradation. All the hills are very slight, but they do affect visibility. Assume that everything not labeled, all the white area, it's pasture. Fields
enclosed with barbed wire fence.
Please hit me with any questions, and feel free to criticize my awful diagram.
I FORGOT TO ADD A COMPASS IN THE MAP. As I said, my road runs North and South, McIntosh runs East and West. My mother's house is north of my house.
Sorry about that.
