The Minnesota Ghost

This is too good not to read, especially if you thought ghosts didn't exist! This happened about a month ago just outside of Willmar, a little town in the back country of Minnesota, and while it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's real.

This out of state traveler was on the side of the road, hitchhiking on a real dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm. Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he could hardly see his hand in

front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghostlike in the rain. It slowly and silently crept toward him and stopped.

Wanting a ride real bad the guy jumped into the car and closed the door; only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel, and no sound of an engine to be heard over the rain. Again the car crept slowly

forward and the guy was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running. The guy saw that the car was approaching a sharp curve and, still too scared to jump out, he started to pray and began begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into a

nearby lake and he would surely drown!

But just before the curve a shadowy figure appeared at the driver's window and a hand reached in and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend. Then, just as silently, the hand disappeared

through the window and the hitchhiker was alone again!

Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time they reached a curve. Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and jumped out of the car and ran and r an, into town, into Willmar.

Wet and in shock, he went into a bar and voice quavering, ordered two shots of whiskey, then told everybody about his supernatural experience.

A silence enveloped and everybody got goose bumps when they realized the guy was telling the truth (and was not just some drunk).

About half an hour later two guys walked into the bar and one says to the other, "Look Ole, ders dat (Contact Us Please) dat rode in our car when we wuz pushin it in da rain. grin.gif

You had me going for a minute.

I have a slightly related real story since I was in the car. While in college I went to Wee-Fest in DL for the 3 day drinking and music extravaganza. We literally got 3-6 hours of sleep in 3 days since we were tenting and had a few cocktails. When we were headed back to the cities on Sunday night, I was dozing off somewhere on I94. I woke up my sleeping buddy and he said he'd drive. We pulled over at an overpass and we switched spots. I immediately dozed off, and I don't even know how long he was driving when I woke up to him yelling and white knuckling the steering wheel. I yelled back "what are you yelling about!!!" He looked at me with a scared face and said "WHEN DID I START DRIVING!!" I told him to pull over and I took the wheel and got us home safely, and he scared the sleepyness right out of me. Quite the ordeal.
