He should be more freaked out that his buddies saw him in the apartment but he was really at school rather than some strange dude in the parking lot.

I enjoy it too, but only in the moment. It's not fun when it stays with you after the moment has passed and you're constantly on edge.

Going back to the story, I can't help but keep thinking about the movie The Mothman Prophecies which was a true story. Sounds to me like the 40 year-old man likes to get liquored up every night and tell fantastic tales the next morning, or he is actually having an encounter with someone or something that's out there.

Could be numerous explanations. A lot of haunted towns either sit on old Indian reservations or slave plantations and thus many haunted stories come out of that as a result.

If I could pick one time to go live, I'd go back to the late 1800's.

i was 16 years old at the time. i was living with my dad in an apartment complex that was set a mile south of new hope. new hope is nestled alongside a river. alongside the river is a canal that has a path that is referred to as a towpath. in order to walk back to my dad's place i had to walk on this towpath which is very dark, very scary, and even to this day leaves you feeling unsettled. here is a photo of the towpath i was traveling on:



anyway it's late at night, maybe around 1AM. i had done this walk late at night before and always ended up running home just because i'd get easily spooked. there is a very old restaurant called 'odettes' that i pass along the walk. 'odettes' is considered very haunted, a famous news reporter in the 80s called jessica savitch died there in the 80's to go along with numerous other strange happenings http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessica_Savitch...

Quote:
On Sunday, October 23, 1983, Savitch had dinner with Martin Fischbein, vice-president of the New York Post, in New Hope, Pennsylvania. After the meal at Odette's Restaurant, they began to drive home about 7:15 pm, with Fischbein behind the wheel and Savitch in the back seat with her dog, Chewy.
Fischbein may have missed posted warning signs in a heavy rainfall, and he drove out of the wrong exit from the restaurant and up the towpath of the old Pennsylvania Canal's Delaware Division on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River. The car veered too far to the left and went over the edge into the shallow water of the canal. After falling approximately fifteen feet and landing upside down, the station wagon sank into deep mud which sealed the doors shut.
Savitch and Fischbein were trapped inside as water poured in. A local resident found the wreck at about 11:30 that night. Fischbein's body was still strapped behind the wheel, with Savitch and her dog in the rear. After the subsequent autopsies, the Bucks County coroner ruled that both had died from asphyxiation by drowning. He noted that Fischbein was apparently knocked unconscious in the wreck but Savitch had struggled to escape. There was no finding that drugs or alcohol had played any part in the crash.[2][4]

i have a zippo lighter in my hand. im sure you're are aware that zippos keep a flame very well. anyway i was nervous so i kept lighting my lighter and flicking it shut. trying to keep myself distracted on this terrible walk. as im doing this i feel a very strong gust of wind, the flame then proceeds to go out, i feel paralyzed by fear, im literally frozen. i see a woman that appeared to be in white garments standing along the bank of the canal. i closed my eyes for a moment because i thought i was seeing things, your mind can play awful tricks on you. i then hear very violent splashes of water in the canal. i glance for one second and it looked as if someone was running through the canal. i immediately ran as fast as i could back to my apartment which was maybe 1,000 yards away at this point. very scary indeed.

i'll share an even scarier story shortly.
