When I was in high school at Downers Grove IL 1953-57. I will guess it was 54. We drove out one night to see if we could see the reported Elgin ghost. It was good and dark as we drove down a straight gravel road heavely wooded on each side.
There were no homes in the area at the time and the night was black as pitch. I can't remember how long we drove down that road when all of a sudden there in the middle of the road was was this white shimmering light.|
In general like the shape of a ghost you would see in the comic strips. I don't remember how many of us were in the car probably five. Some started screaming lets get out of here. I was probably no less frightened than the rest but was to proud to demonstrate any sign of fear.|
We contined to drive towards it. As we got closer the more distinct it became when one or more started shouting turn around lets get out of here! Were any of you out there with me that nit Frank firstname.lastname@example.org.
