Hi, I live in Merced on West 14th Street. I have encountered several very creepy things since moving here. At night in the front yard it always feels as if someone is very close watching you. It makes the hairs on your arms and neck stand up. Sometimes it's so intense I have to walk quickly back in the house. I've seen figures float across the yard, and the strangest thing of all is very often from nowhere you get the whiff of a very very odd smell.
It's not totally gross, but it is very very strange. Every time I smell it, I right away turn on my EMF meter, and it always is buzzing off the charts.|

I recently went fishing at Lake McClure. It was at a place where I had gone fishing before with my brother. I found this place one day when I drove up there and hiked down to a little spot where it is less frequented by swimmers. The place is super quiet. After setting up my fishing gear I wandered off about 50 yards from the edge of the lake, and I began to observe since I like the sounds of nature. I noticed that there was a fallen tree, and someone had made some kind of tepee with the left over branches around the fallen tree. It seemed oddly strange why someone would create such a thing. It was not like someone was trying to make a livable tepee but was only made half ways with no cover or anything like that. I thought that maybe someone was just having fun building things.
As I walked away, I could hear leaves being stepped on at about 60-50 feet away. What seemed like footstep sounds would come and go, but I could not make sense of it. Whatever it was, it really sounded like footsteps or like something was watching me, but there was nothing to be seen. I really wanted to make sense out of it, maybe a raccoon. When the footsteps finally got close, about 20 feet, I really freaked out. The hairs on skin really lifted. I'm not the scary cat type, but whatever wanted to spook me really did the job. When I finally zoned in on where I heard the footsteps, I saw a huge tarantula, not even moving or anything. Whatever it was, the little handmade tepee, the tarantula, the strange noises, it was all not a good vibe at all.
