    I’m far from a paranormal believer. A skeptic at best, but probably closer to a non-believer. Heading East over it a couple days ago, about a mile past the exit sign that reads ‘Deadman’s Pass’, I saw an older trailer in front of me. It was around midnight. It was three quarters of a mile or so up a head — close enough I want to keep a fairly close watch coming up to a downgrade. It topped the hill and I never saw it again. I’m 99% sure it was just a little road psychosis/fatigue playing a part after hours of night driving across I-84, but it seemed odd. Anyone who’s been down cabbage knows there’s no quick way to disappear. Barely any exits, and almost zero traffic that late to get intermingled with.

    Was curious if anyone else has experienced the same thing, or has any old trucker tales/hauntings from the infamous passes out west that have taken some lives like Donner, Snoqualmie, etc.

    probably kicked it out of gear and rode the hill out in triple digits ... I roll that weekly and am impressed with how unsafely fast some "professional drivers" run that, even if they are empty.
     
    Boondock Thanks this.
