We were going to do a little car camping, drink a few ice cold Natty Lights. You know, year-old stuff. Got there, set up camp, had said Natty Lights, and me and a guy decided to go do a little exploring, so we walked about yards from our site back to the main road, saw another path directly across from us, and started walking. Immediately we started seeing signs that someone had lived there for a while. Big bags of trash, stuff like that. Should have been a huge red flag to turn around.
But, you know. Nothing could hurt us. So we get to this campsite of an older white guy living out of his van. Clothes lines strung up, coolers placed around it, and a big gorgeous dog, I think maybe a golden retriever.
We tried to back out, but he sees us and starts talking. I kept thinking to myself how odd it was that he Horror In The Woods - Stickhead - Horror In The Woods directions in steps, not yards or miles.
Guy always seemed to be off balance. Not stumbling drunk, but like he was walking on a balance beam, swaying side to side. Camping part over. We went back to our tents. Fast-forward two months, same buddy calls me late at night Horror In The Woods - Stickhead - Horror In The Woods tells me to turn on TV to the news, I oblige.
I see an old dude with a van. What the fuck. He kidnapped and murdered a girl on Blood Mountain, GA, an older couple in the Pisgah NC, and a girl in the Apalachicola at that campsite not long after we left. Yes, the very same places he had been talking to us about. Obviously we call the Cold World - Tribeca - Cut & Run, they put us in touch with the FBI F is for Floridaand we get flown down to take investigators to the campsite.
Point out every spot we saw anything, tell them exactly what he told us, and show them the places he described to us. Had to fly down again to testify. A few years back we were doing a massive survey in the middle of nowhere in the interior of BC. All the crew had gone home and it was just my boss and myself left for a few Control - Various - The Final Active Listener Sampler to Horror In The Woods - Stickhead - Horror In The Woods up and confirm some coordinates and finish some mapping.
We head out from the motel an hour or so into the bush. Middle of nowhere along deactivated logging roads. Closest town is miles and miles away. We hike out to this one area we had found a site a few weeks previously. For some reason the whole area just felt…off. Like, I could feel pressure in my ears. I immediately looked at my boss about 20 feet away and he is white as a ghost staring back at me.
Chills all over my body and every hair is standing on end. No clue what it was but I have never been so freaked out in my life. There have been a lot of theories and sounds, but nothing like it…the best I can describe: You know when a large Horror In The Woods - Stickhead - Horror In The Woods or an eagle takes flight? Kind of like that…but you would feel it and it was LOUD! We drove through, one side of the campground was relatively empty, and I noticed a few scattered tents but nobody close to the location we ended up picking.
We had tons of space. We wanted an early night so I started a fire while my girlfriend started cooking. We ate, had a few beers, and climbed up to our rooftop tent tepee with our dog by 9pm or so. I had a rough time sleeping and woke up a few times but finally fell into a decent sleep. I slowly unzipped the tent while our guard dog was snoring and got my head out of the tent. I took a few seconds to let my eyes adjust and figure out where the person was.
I felt more confident once I could He Was A Friend Of Mine - The Byrds - Premium Best see and hear so I climbed down and the girlfriend passed me the dog and she climbed down, too.
We flipped the tent up without securing it and we jumped into a truck while the person was still whistling to a motel in Crescent City.
