Wow I am loving reading all these stories, thanks to everyone for sharing and also thanks for posing this question!
I don't know how I would pick the strangest event in my life but I will tell of an event my whole family experienced, I like those because I worry
less about having just gone crazy!
It happened 2yrs ago at a one room cabin my family rented for the weekend. It's located in a state park and is last cabin in a line of 4, with a thin
line of trees between it and the 3rd cabin, forest behind it, a field and trees in front, and a LARGE field on the far side that ends at the edge of
We enjoyed this specific cabin specifically for the seclusion!! We had heard noises in the night before, steps on the wooden porch but it's on the
edge of the middle of nowhere so of course we'll hear animals and some might sound as big as a person walking across porch, nothing to worry
The night in question my husband and I were sleeping on futon, 6yr old and 11 yr old on bunkbed, and 16 yr old in tent in front of cabin. I thought I
was only one awake as i routinely suffer insomnia. I heard a sound from far end of field where dense forest begins that made my breath catch, sounded
to me like a pig maybe but like a scream, what i would suspect a pigs death scream might sound like, but that didn't seem right either because there
seemed a human quality like a human doing a really bad pig scream?
All this flew through my head a matter of seconds, before I decided my exhausted brain was playing tricks on me. At that moment, maybe 30 seconds
after pig sound, DIRECTLY on the other side of the wall beside the futon, on the side closest the field, came a loud raspy chanting in what seemed
another language i didn't recognize.. Again my breath caught in my throat and my first thought was i must be really sleep deprived!
Then my husband says " ok you all heard that right? " and both kids said " yeah?! " and I said " wait you mean my mind WASN'T playing tricks on
me?! " right then we hear multiple distinct sets of footsteps across porch.. Hubby jumps to door and looks out window but whoever it was is already
out of sight. I beg hubby to go get oldest son, and had never been happier about my hubby having permit to carry! We get son safely inside, being 16
he'd been sound asleep and heard nothing, but for the next couple hours we heard voices, twigs snapping, and steps on porch yet saw nothing every
time we looked.
Hubby basically believes in nothing of paranormal origin and was immediately convinced it was just kids messing with us, but he did share with me that
at the moment of hearing chant he got a flash image of an old person in robes/rags with long hair and staff. That's the exact image i got except I
thought man he thought woman. Whoever it was was about a foot or 2 from my face with only the wooden slabof wall between us. It certainly didn't
sound like a kids voice. That weird pig sound was so perfectly timed it seems it had to be some sort of signal call yet that field must be a half hour
walk through tough weeds and low brush so why put that much effort into scaring someone?
So there's one of the really strange things that have happened, sorry for length, thanks for listening!
