    Tell me about...

    ...a time when you got creeped out in a car.

    1) Wife & I were heading to the airport at about 3AM, listening to Coast to Coast and some guy was describing in detail an alleged experience he had while working as a long haul trucker where he was out in New Mexico on the highway in the middle of the desert w/ no light & no one around and he purportedly saw an old lady with white hair on the side of the road, hitchhiking. His story was that he passed her in the middle of nowhere and got creeped out, but kept going, and around 10 miles down the road, he saw her or someone who looked just like her hitchhiking. We then had a black cat run across the road in front of the car and we both yelled. Amusing.

    2) We were driving out to look for the White Horse of Uffington and it was getting clear that we weren't going to make it before dark. We kept going and there was no one around and this heavy fog descended on the area. So we get there, the light from the headlights are disappearing into the darkness, and she says, "I'm going out there to see if I can see anything." She goes out a short distance, turns around with this look of horror and hauls back to the car and says, "There's something moving out there, let's go back tomorrow, when it's light."

    3) Near misses, accidents, etc. Those aren't amusing.

    Well, MV called and asked if I wanted to go see a movie. Anyway, he picked me up and me up and said he wanted to go to a new place and started heading towards the city limits, and just kept going.

    After about 15 minutes he came to a stop at the end of a one lane dead end dirt road. He turned off the ignition, turned up the radio, leaned over and began to run his hands over my leg. Then he kissed me. That is when I got creeped out.

    No, not by the kiss, it was fine. He had put a Julio Iglesias cassette into the stereo. That dude always creeps me out.

    I saw you. You were my "back up" in case things did not go well with MV. After we got some Culture Club on the radio, things went swimmingly, luckily for you.

    He stole that story from The Twilight Zone episode.


    Coast to coast is a hell of an entertaining show though!

    In my case the joke was on him: my leg was asleep.

    I used to go to school with an older Navajo woman. She said she was driving through Tuba City late one night and came up on an old Navajo guy walking along the side of the road. She slowed down a bit and he stopped and stared at her. As she got closer, he bent down on all fours, turned into a coyote, and ran off. This woman was generally a pretty serious woman. She didn't joke around much and that was the only story she ever told that was really weird. I tend to believe she saw what she said she saw...

    coyote rhymes with peyote, and both can be found in Tuba City area.

    Driving to a friend's vacation cabin in Mackinaw, MI. We had a 3 car caravan and were using CB radios to keep in contact. Since we were driving up I-75, there was also a lot of trucker converstaion on 19. It was getting late, and we were listening to a couple of truck drivers banter back and forth, and heard one say "Oh ****" then there was a noise that we heard over the radio and outside the car a couple seconds later. About 0.5 mile up the highway, there was the truck and the remanants of some smaller car that he'd smashed into. It looked like the guy in the car tried to beat the truck coming off an entrance ramp, and lost.

    Got a lift from someone with a group of 5 in a small car. We all pile in and I end up sandwiched in the middle of the back seat. The driver starts turning the key in the ignition and immediately a loud hissing starts directly behind me.

    This was in a tropical country known for it's deadly and aggressive snakes. We'd only been in the car just long enough to wake a sleeping reptile up and I had no idea if I was in between it and the exit.

    All of that coupled with my fear of snakes, I almost leapt out of my skin.

    Kind of funny when I turned around to find an el-cheapo car stereo speaker.

    My dad picked me up from school one night, and as we were driving home, he goes "Holy crap, did ya see that?" I said that I didn't, and asked what it was... "It was a HUGE white rabbit that just ran under the car!"

    There wasn't a rabbit...

    Now, every once in a while, someone will mention the story, and someone else will start singing Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit."

    I'd start calling him Elwood P. Dowd, but that's just me.
