I'm not scared of monsters. I'm scared of spatial distortions. You hear stories about people that pull over on the side of the road to take a piss. They wander 20 feet into the forest. Then they realize they can no longer see their car. They can't hear the road. They walk back the way they came. Nothing. They start to feel a profound sense of unease and distress. They start running through the forest trying to find the road. Eventually they hear a car engine and run towards it, emerging from the trees a few feet away from their car and another car that stopped to check on them. I think a lot of the people that go missing in the forests are caught up in distortions. They wander off the trail to take a shit. They can never find the trail ever again.

Definitely scary, do you think it’s a psychological thing or something more supernatural? And if it’s the latter why aren’t you afraid of monsters, if space time can be molded like play dough to fuck with rados innawoods why shouldn’t there be things that go bump in the night

Yeah I've been going /out/ for 20 years, great navigator and route finder, I can sniff out a game trail just anywhere and yet I've had moments where I walked right past a place I once camped just days before and swear it looked completely different. The way things look when you're walking north can look completely different when you're going south. Especially when you've taken in a whole weeks more information, your memory has had to make room. Hell even one place where the dog took a dump and it was still there on return but everything else looked different.

That state of flow always brings out the deer, idfk why man. I think it's a real 6th sense we have that fires up when there is lots of sign around to get us in the best state to take advantage of it. The deer are already there and we are being induced into that state by their presence.

Never had anything happen that was supernatural spooky but I wouldn't discount others experiences.
I do firmly believe in a 6th sense. Most famous naturalist and outdoorsman that I've read have at least casually mentioned in in their writings. most explain it as your lizard brain sensing danger before your higher will can comprehend the situation. I've personally experienced this.

So, you heard the net detaching and turned around immediately? So it must have snatched it directly from your pack and then managed to not be visible to you a couple seconds after? Was there some bigger trees around? Did you look up?
I completely believe you btw. Theres tens of thousands of people having similar experiences to yours all over the world and all of the north american tribes have stories about them. Yours fits in with a lot of common themes.
It probably appreciated the trail mix. Can't get that in the wild.

>Park janny
I fined an autistic-behaving dude wearing sunglasses at daytime for parking his run-down white company van on a woodland path instead of parking at the designated space. I just got done removing a quarter ton of drug waste and didn't have the patience to ask about the van, plus the guy was coöperative so i just assumed he was that one tarded son all company owners seem to have.
Three weeks later the dude, revealed to be an 80iq serial sexual offender, was arrested for abducting, raping and stabbing a female college student to death. She was from a town 20 miles from my woods, who went missing some time before. The guy confessed to the police he got paranoid about her initial burial place and dug her up to move her corpse. The vehicle i fined was from the guys' grandpa's company and might have contained the plastic-wrapped rotting corpse of a college student.

>>2709287
Micheal Panhuis. A psychiatric patient who enjoyed a very lenient sentence and was allowed to roam free and even keep bolt cutters under his bed to steal bikes and sell them for scrap. He sometimes went to his grandparents who were renovating, which is where the knife came from. He crashed into the student (who was cycling) on a bike path. She wanted to call police, and because Michael's moped was uninsured and he didn't want to lose it, he decided the best case of action was to durrrr, rape her, slit her throat and scatter her belongings through the forest which eventually led to him..

I got more of a sweet story
When I was a kid and my family would go grilling or walking in the mountains, we used to look for "gnome houses" which were peculiarly shaped tree trunks that looked like homes, especially if they had holes that filled up with water, in which case they were gnome swimming pools. My mom would then help me make "gnome boats" by using half a nut shell, filling it with the soft part of bread, then a toothpick inserted in the break to make the mast and a bit of tissue paper to make the sails. If you put it in water it would float. I like to think that they were in fact gnome houses and the gnomes enjoyed the boats I made for them.

Doubt this I don't care.
It was the early 80s, coon hunting with buddy and dogs. We were crossing a bean field when something making a buzzing noise flew over very close. Both of us without a single word, because it happened very fast, dove to the ground.
It was impossible to see and headlamp was off. It was not insects, birds, model airplane and not alcohol or drugs. If anything it sounded mechanical but no idea what it could have been, a guess but it was smaller than a person, maybe like small to mid size dog. Very fast, very close but no wind or air disturbance felt. That's it.
>>
>>2707553
I spend a lot of time kayak fishing at night around the panhandle of Florida. A month ago I was fishing some docks lights in a bay around 8 or 9pm and had just caught a small redfish. Get him unhooked and toss him back, a couple seconds later feel something bump hard into the bottom of my kayak. Out of the corner of my eye I see what looks like a massive fucking snake swimming under the surface of the water, hard to judge the exact length but upwards of 6'.
Try to stay calm and he keeps moving but the weird thing is once he gets about 15' away from me his head surfaces and he's looking right at me. I'm getting my pistol out slowly as he disappears back under the water. The most fucked part is he's in the direction of the boat launch I used so I have to paddle right over the spot where he surfaced. Cant imagine a worst death then getting constricted and drowing, I got lucky.

Every story I have ends up being super lame because it’s more of a “you had to be there” experience. It’s more of a feeling or an instance that’s so mild it’s easily brushed aside as just a random misinterpretation of a common sound or something equally as innocuous. But I got into hiking at a very young age (3 months old), so these weren’t cases of newbish fear.

Years ago, I was doing my usual out walk with my doggo when I turned to see a an old man walking on the track behind me. He was quite a distance away but for some reason, I felt a feeling of fear and increased my pace as to avoid him. 5 minutes later I looked back and he was gaining on me somehow. I increased my pace again and thankfully I was close to where I parked my car. I got to my car, bundled my dog in the car then took off.

I had an overwhelming feeling of fear the second time I turned around and saw him. I'm not sure why, I've seen a couple of other strange things down that track. It could have been and probably was just an old man but it was so strange the feeling that came over me.

Trannys, liberals, queers and steers. I saw an Indian with a pet Chupa Cabra one time. Another time I had a raccoon come up to me and in perfect English it spoke in a squeaky voice "Hey, you've got to get up in the trees, like me" I gave it a souvenir and it took it into its hands so I know it wasn't a dream or some shit.

I was in this state park one time. It was 7:00 PM and I was throwing around a disc. My dog kept looking over at this tree-line about 100 meters away. Got serious GTFO vibes too. And you ALWAYS listen to your gut. Probably just a mountain lion but I wasn't about to find out. Stay strapped in the woods.

Went camping in the Everglades in July once. I don't recommend that. The weather is basically pure hell with a side of mosquitoes. My buddy nearly got killed when he stumbled across an American crocodile guarding her nest.

Never had any supernatural experiences, though, despite being stuck with a disabled vehicle in two different national forests. Thank the gods for kindly rednecks.

Another kayak fishing close call that happened last week. Kayak fishing a bayou right before sundown had caught a couple specks and had them on a stringer attached to my kayak. I navigate the last couple of bends around some grass flats and take a second to cast before I head out. Huge thump at the side of my kayak nearly tips me over, the wake from whatever just hit me is churning the water to my left and right. A fucking family of gators decided to sneak a free meal off my stringer and are taking turns darting at my kayak. I cut my stringer loose and very slowly paddle backwards towards the shoreline. I can see them pretty clearly now tearing up the specks I just jettisoned. I've never seen gators be so aggressive before, maybe mating season or a scarcity of food? No way in hell Im fishing that spot again in kayak, only a retard tests fate twice.
