I lived in a small labor camp north east of Ivanhoe west of Woodlake called the RANCHO BLANCO in the summer of 1982. I arrived home around 1:00am. I then heard a mule bray. I knew what a mule sounded like, so I was sure of what it was. I ran inside and got my rifle already convinced I was going to take that mule out. I walked out to the orange orchard now angry, for what reason I did not know. I never shoot living things, I was not a hunter. Being lured out far away from home and angry next thing I realized I was standing in the middle of the orange orchard. I stared to hearing whispers LOTS OF WHISPERS! I thought it was my pals from the labor camp (A. K. A. RANCH) trying to scare me. I shouted out to them to come out. I said ''I know it's you'', and I wasn't scared. Then I could hear more whispers and louder.
The orange trees around me started moving and blowing around as if the wind had kicked up! It was the middle of summer. I was starting to back up out of the orange orchards. I kicked off my Birkenstocks shoe and threw my rifle under the same trees that were moving and blowing around, and I hauled out of there fast. I could feel something try to hold me back. I was too scared and freaked out to look back. I could hear voices and small whispers. I could make out the voices clear as day. The voices saying ''He's LEAVING!'' I never looked back all the way to my front door bare footed! Sharp rocks and goat head stickers did not slow me down a bit. I bet I made it home in six seconds considering I was about 200 yards away.
The next day I saw my friend Rick outside washing his truck. I went out there, started to ask him if he heard anything weird last night like a mule or donkey. With a straight face he said ''no!'' Then I told him what I had experienced early that morning. I convinced him to go out with his truck and look around with me where I heard noises. I wanted to see if there were any mule or donkey tracks, but there were none. But there my Birkenstocks and rifle were where I left them that early morning, but there were no sign of tracks -- nothing, just my foot prints. Rick smiled and asked what I had been smoking! For a moment he thought I was messing with him? He knew I was kind of weirded out by what I was telling him, and I was telling him the truth! We saw some people working that morning in the area, so we asked them if they had seen any mule tracks or large animal tracks. They answered ''no. '' I do not know if this area was haunted, or was it a personal haunted moment? But it still to this day gives me the chills.

Comment by JPL: This place referred too as ''The Rancho Blanco'' is a very old historical place from the early 1900s. 100s of Japanese, Chinese, Philippinos, Latino migrant workers dwelled in the six camps created by the owner John D. Martin. So many many people came and went, some died in the cabins from illnesses and other reasons. Some just left without telling anyone. Cotton wood creek runs right down the middle of the JD Martin Ranch are there are two hills called ''Bacon Hill'' where Native American Indians lived and had a sacred healing area. There are grinding holes and drawings, a small Indian burial ground found at the foot of the hill.
This doesn't mean the J. D. Martin Ranch is haunted but there could be a lot of unrested souls there.
