It was 2010 I was driving my Ford f-150 from my home in Pennsylvania to Georgia I had family in the countryside of Georgia who I’d be spending the week with it was gonna be a drive of around 14 hours and I planned on doing it all in one day I got on the road at 10:00
a.m. I stopped once for lunch at some deli and then four hours later I stopped at a rest area to eat the turkey sandwiches I packed in the cooler after that I didn’t intend on making any other
stops besides for guess one more time of course at about 11:30 p.m. I had just filled up the tank one more time and now I had an ETA of about 12:30 I was admittedly getting very tired now I didn’t think to get coffee at the gas station for some reason the route the GPS was taking me down from the gas station seemed a little odd I wasn’t on the highway anymore it was just taking me down some country-ass side roads my truck is high up so I got a good view of everything and I also had a light bar installed which really helped in lighting up these pitch-black roads I was so tired and I knew I shouldn’t have been driving anymore but I was so close to my cousin’s house that I had to keep going I came to a stop sign and made a left turn off some quiet road onto an even quieter road the speed limit on this road was 45 though which was good this road was empty of any kinds of buildings or houses it was just woodland
on either side I was going like 55 to 60 miles per hour blazing down this road since it really seemed like no other cars would be on this type of road at this hour then suddenly I saw like four shiny objects coming up fest in the road ahead of me I slammed on the brakes and as I
got closer I figured out what they were they were traffic drums like those big cylinder traffic cones my truck managed to come to a halt before I rammed into the drums I got out of my truck with my baseball bat confused as hell and went over to the traffic drums and realized there was something else behind the traffic drums it was a spike trap like the kind police
use I didn’t know what to think is there some kind of police activity going on or did somebody set this up as a trap I cautiously looked all around me as I inched back to my truck then I heard someone scream help they came from the woods on the left side of the road there was no way I was about to go into those woods the most I was willing to do was call out what’s wrong no answer I walked to the edge of the road and looked into the forest the only reason I could see anything was because of the lights for my truck in the corner of my eye I spotted him without looking directly at him I saw someone crouched down behind a couple bushes I didn’t run I just casually walked back to my car when I got in and shut the door I looked to my left to see two silhouettes by the edge of the woods on the side of the road walking towards my truck I drove the truck to the right side of the road onto the dirt and
passed the spike trap I don’t think they anticipated me actually going around but
when I looked in the rear view mirror I saw at least three silhouettes standing by the traffic drums let up only briefly by the taillights of my truck a few seconds later they were gone out of my vision and out of my life forever this was not something I would have ever expected to happen to me nevertheless I’m glad I made it out alive.
