…or something like that.
I was running down a story about a truck driver who witnessed another driver have a collision with Bigfoot. However, after reading his story, I think that Bagofshet’s description of the account is much better. The “facts” seemed to paint a more convincing account of the event to me, especially the part about the color of the meth and the pickles being erroneously added to the driver’s burger.
You want to talk scary?
Try mushroom hunting. That’s right! You think The Deadliest Catch is thrilling, try this sport on for size. I mean poisonous mushrooms that will drop you dead before you swallow. Then there are the psychedelic ‘shrooms that will make your next dinner salad an adventure in wonderland.
Those are all rookie mistakes as any good truck-driving mycologist knows. One needs to know two things when fungi foraging:
- How to identify the good mushrooms from the bad mushrooms from the ‘shrooms.
- Video or audio equipment of any kind are not permitted.
I really can’t tell if that was a mistake or just a well thought out instructional video. There was no fear or panic in his voice. Just a simple instruction that it was now time to leave. Solid decision-making skills in my opinion.
Maybe you believe and maybe you don’t, but in the words of Joe Barger, a 59-year-old trucker (as reported in this story in Midland Daily News)…”Even if you don’t believe what I’m saying is truthful, it might be something you can draw from in the future..”
Barger does not claim to have seen Bigfoot, not Sasquatch, not the Yeti, nor slender man, nor Nessy. He saw, and shot, mind you – Dogman.
After fixing an air leak on his rig, Barger was just driving through the dark midnight woods of Michigan with his windows down.
Not mid-afternoon as you were expecting…
Feeling an uneasy vibe from the woods, he noticed that there was a giant wolf trotting on two legs next to his cab.
But what is worse, it was about 10 feet tall, pure black, yellow intelligent eyes, pure white teeth, 3-inch fangs, and human hands a minimum of 14 inches across.
It was angry and bending down to look into the cab. Searching for you know who.
Do you have the picture in your mind? A semi-truck in the middle of the night in somewhere backwoods Michigan with a giant black-as-night wolf trotting next to it on two legs. So large that it has to bend down to look into the cab.
Barger says that he has never seen anything like that in any reality he knows of. The story isn’t clear on how many realities he actually does know of…
However, he is one cool customer as he says he did not panic and instead slugged it with a .45-caliber bullet in the eye socket.
Yes, he went back to the scene but it was gone. It’s a shame his Colt was in a better position than the camera on his phone.
My only problem with these stories are the howls. I get the Wolf and the pissed-off Sasquatch Mushroom farmer. But…
As any good Sasquatch enthusiast knows, the 5280.com Beginner’s Guide to Hunting Bigfoot clearly instructs us under the vocalizations section that even though the eerie scream of the Ohio Howl from 1994 is the most famous, Sasquatch normally sound like other hikers mumbling in the distance.
Get your stories straight, people. I know a real Sasquatch when I see one.
Peace and love.
