    Here's another one.
    In NM you can go from Farmington to Grants by going north from Thoreau , which is a good road.
    Now your crossing the Navajo Res. , so there's no truck help , street lights and the the animals are not fenced in except for cattle guards and such.
    Well I'd emptied out in Farmington and decided to go down to i-40 to head back to ABQ.
    ( about 65 miles to thoreu)
    So it's pitch black except for the headlights and the occasional lighting flash , 'cause it was raining pertty good , I was moving along pertty good , around 60 , and was slowing down for a cattle guard when POW , hit at cow !!!
    Anyways , stopped on the road , hit the flashers, grab flashlight and check out the damage.
    Rain coming down in buckets, skies lite up with lightning and wind blowing . ( monsoons out here are interesting events) anyways ... right side fender is gone along with the lites and the bumper bent in !!!
    So go after getting soaked and pulling the bumper off the steer tire , drive the rest of the way to I-40 with one lite and lightning for lite

    I think I’m the record holder in falling asleep fast. My dog is a little faster than me but I’m seconds behind him. I can be talking and finish what I’m saying and snore the next breathe. So no way will I drive if I’m at the sleepy point. It helps that I’m day time driver, I’m not so sure I would trust myself driving at night.

    Friend, I’ve seen the black dog. Dead in the middle of the night I was pulling a load over to Palestine Tx on some risky roads. Pull up to a stop with a log book worth 48 hrs straight. Got them brakes full on, look to my left at the single overhead light. Black dog staring straight at my face. I put that mf into gear and pull into the next stop for a quick 30min nap.


    Seen me a lady in 1980 work uniform on the side of 35s in Tx middle of the evening. She was staring dead into the highway with no party in sight. Just cold soul staring.

    west Tx cotton runs put me in plenty of places I feel all outta sorts.

    my mother died when I was 16, so I believe she keeps me straight and narrow on them risky roads.

    Night driving gets me bad too. I’ll pull over for several 10 minute naps. I normally carry seeds with me, but when them run out I get that soul tired within me. Start getting tired wondering why them police ain’t pulled me over yet. Shut it down shortly after that realization

    These days, late at night down some dark back country road driving by yourself you’re more likely to encounter aliens. Every single day in the news we hear about more sightings and see more video. It’s getting completely ridiculous at this point. All the major news networks and government agencies acknowledging that they’re real. Why don’t they just come out with it already.

    I think we’re on the verge of learning a lot about this life and the universe and that we’ve been wrong about a lot of stuff for a very long time. But as far as ghosts and things go? None of us will really ever know for sure until we face that time.
