This happened a few months back...
Went out wheeling on a wildlife preserve with a buddy of mine and we found some trails that had been newly forged, so we decided to check them out. Well, we end up making a big circle, which was kind of a let down.
I glanced off to my side and noticed another trail leading away from all of this, but it had a gate, so that kind of made me not want to go. There was also an oak tree that basically had branches to the ground (scratched the crap out of my Jeep) that was in the way also.
However, I wanted to go and since the gate was open, I figured the hell with it. So we get back there, and you can go straight, which is like an endless looking grass road (boo), or you can hang a right which is a long and curvy dirt road (yay). So we hang a right.
Shortly after going back there, I just got this eerie feeling like we didnt belong back there, the woods were torn up in a wierd way... something about it was kinda off.
So we kind of sat there for a minute contemplating weather or not to go straight, or turn around and go back, when all of a sudden I hear a framiliar whooshing sound... chopper. I look up and out of nowhere this chopper comes blazing above the trees (not really low to the ground, but low enough), flies over... no biggy I think.
Well, the noise didnt go way, and we look up again and he was really throwing that thing around and heading back our way in a hurry, he had definatly taken notice of us.
I figured that was a pretty good sign to leave right then and there. Im not really sure if they were looking for somebody (this was the kind of place that you go to do something bad), or if we werent suppose to be back there or what.
It was scary, cause you cant really run from the chopper... luckily we took off and he didnt fallow.
Another fun one is being left alone in your stuck Jeep in the middle of nowhere, where youve personally seen some wierd stuff at the same spot. I had gotten stuck with some freinds, who had also gotten stuck. I didnt want to leave my Jeep back there by itself, cause it was in plain veiw of the road, as their truck was sunk in a water hole waaaay back in the trail. After they were out of site, I wish I had walked with them. I had to get out to take a leak twice, and each time I did I kept getting freaked out about seeing some psycho walking towards me, or some bigass animal tearing me up. Woop de doo, that was a dumb one on my part, but hey im still here...
