A listener from New Hampshire writes “So it was probably 2001, around June. My wife and I had just gotten a jeep cherokee. It was our first four wheel drive. Even though we had been together for ten years at that point I still liked showing off for her. On the way home from my parents I brought her down this class five road that is really no more than a snowmobile trail and was very muddy. It was wet that year. I shouldn’t have been there in the first place.
I’m driving down the class five. it is muddy and slipping and sliding so I am looking maybe ten yards ahead most of the time. pretty much crawling. I look further ahead and there is a big ass stump very close to the road/snowmobile trail. I thought “Why the hell would the snowmobile club leave that there like that, It is dangerous.” I drove around it. like a few feet from the passenger door. the road quickly gets worse. I couldn’t get stuck out there with her and the boys, I turned around and went back. left without incident. I didn’t realize for weeks that the stump wasn’t there on the way out.
I am driving down this road and she sees something big close to the road. as we got closer she could see eyes. As I drive past it is looking her right in the eye. (she said he looked pissed.) So I keep driving and she looks in her mirror. She said it stood up took to steps and she couldn’t see it after that. I turn around we leave.
Wes Melissa was and at times still is terrified. She said nothing for two weeks to tell me. that is when I realized the stump wasn’t there on the way out.”
