A friend of mine and I rode our quads every Sunday during summer months. We rode through the woods behind the Portage High School. My friend lived in Lilly and I live in downtown Portage so we would split up just before dark and head our separate ways home.|
I used to ride the woods between Old Martys gas station and Redbird. One night as we rode longer than usual, it was already dark by the time I reached this part of the ride home. I was on the trail
following the old tracks and I spotted a man in the distance.|
I wondered why someone would be walking alone in pitch darkness through these woods.
I cautiously rode up on him and I noticed that something wasn't right. He had on old miner's type clothes and was carrying a lantern which was not working.|
As I got closer he turned his head to the right so as to not look at me or let me see his face. I slowly rode past him and when I turned to look back at him he was gone! Completely gone. I was 39 years old and not drinking or anything.
This is honest to God true and to this day I can't explain this.
