I-40's North Carolina visitor center @ the Tennessee state line!

This is a spot on I-40 West to spend some time near Waterville, North Carolina. Make sure it's 4:00 AM when you set out your lawn chair facing the parking lot toward the four lanes and the rock wall. I saw no ghost, but this happened to me. Something intervened affecting my life forever.

The cost is free except for the over priced gas you'd use.

I guess for starters. Just stare at the concrete on the West end of the little grassy area between the trucks and the cars and think of this story. Take some digi cam pics too while you're waiting for daylight. On second thought maybe I need to be sitting in a lawn chair too. I could narrate the story below. If this was my guardian angel as a ghostly spirit's intervention.

Worldwide, truck drivers tell tall tales, and 95% of them are true. We take most with a grain of salt of which some may be transporting that too. I bought and still own a SCANIA for transporting high grade logs.

In 1989 I was loaded with Illinois white oak veneer logs headed to eastern Virginia a 760 mile trip. It was 4:00 am as I pulled into the first rest area out of Tennessee at the North Carolina line. There was one spot left on the end next to a grassy median. Cars on the right, and trucks on the left. I pulled straight in behind a parallel parked semi-trailer rig and set the brake on my Swedish truck. One of 600 imported to the USA, and the only one with an aluminum hood guard.

I ate some cakes with milk, and to my amazement I perked up quickly. I noticed a truck coming in with his lights on bright. It stopped to my left, behind me. I said on the CB radio, " I'm ready to leave now. You can have my spot."

He said nothing so I reversed moving 80,000 lbs 6-8 feet. I stopped like hitting a wall! I'd hit the front of a truck that was mostly blocking the car entrance. I didn't see it pull in behind me! I got a sick feeling as I jammed the brake. The damage was done and I had 1.5 million safe miles.

I got my flashlight and wondered if there was a long log hanging over a bit,... I couldn't remember. There was no overhang, AND there was NO DAMAGE to the truck I just slammed! I lit it up,....nothing,....the fan blades should have been in the radiator,...it shouldn't be running,....it was!

I rubbed my hand over the smooth white metal. I looked for anti-freeze under the motor, none anywhere! The Caterpiller motor had it's familiar sound. It was in perfect shape and I was stunned!

The driver was in the rest area building and never came out during my wide eyed investigation. I kept saying to myself, "What do I tell him? I've hit your truck but there's no damage?" To my left a truck left a space open, and I pulled left to park there.

It was breaking dawn as I looked in my driver side mirror at the new white cabover Freightliner sitting there running. I laid my head down over the wheel to rest,...to wait. It was gone when I woke up 15 minutes later! I think about this everyday and night!


Folks? Hit an aluminum soda can with a hammer. If you cannot dent it. That is what happened to me, wide awake and impossible to do! I paid thousands of dollars for insurance and would never have pulled a hit and run. Like I mentioned above. I stayed there until the truck left the visitor center.

Like my British friends have said. It was an angelic intervention delaying my trip, and avoiding an unknown danger in perfectly good driving weather. That is the only explanation I understand, but some have said it was a ghost driver's ghost truck. I did touch it and there was form to touch.

Simply weird and a hard to swallow true story. To this day I'm not sure why I stopped there. I was not that tired nor did I need to go in the visitor center. I never took anything to stay awake. That is illegal and I was tested randomly by Foley Labratory Services Inc., a Connecticut company.

In a repeat from last years e-mail to Art Bell's Ghost to Ghost, I've sent it to him again.

artbell@mindspring.com

MK from Indiana

Comments? Questions? Or? Crickets?

This is my first and only post and I heard Joshua on with George Noory last night. What an hour of eye openers & with the news flash about the cool strobing glasses invention to see spirits!

In an edit after Ghost to Ghost AM & Art Bell choosing 7-9 ghost story e-mails of maybe 1-2,000 entries. I'll try once again for an Open Line & I've held the phone "listening live" many times not picked to date.

Edited 7/1/08; The Coast 2 Coast AM screener has let me in twice the last several months. Twice the phone has went dead when Joshua was on live with George Noory. The truck was stationary and the cell phone tower's signal was tops.

I'll send this a third time next Halloween. Send this link to Art if you would. Guardian angels as intervening spirits were in a few e-mails read by Mr. Bell on his last Ghost to Ghost show.

Bill O'Rilley's No Spin Zone radio show got a touch of the paranormal going last night. He asked if Art Bell was still on the radio with paranormal topics. He is a typical skeptic of same and said so.

Thanks for allowing edits 24/7! I just noticed on 3/21/08 that I'd misspelled "guardian."

Edited again today 7/1/08 for the Google map straight to Haywood County along I-40. The rest area is on east a short ways. It looks bigger to me than I remember. The rest stop may have been redone since 1989.

You can view it pretty close via satellite here. The link below must be copied and pasted into your web browser.

Here is the story from near-by Asheville, NC that I had a few weird times getting cut off the line with George Noory and Joshua P. Warren chatting in my phone on hold during Coast to Coast AM.

It's named Scania Hit!, The Story of the Week 24-7, until further notice, on the little red radio from Mark Elvidge's

http://www.mysterial.org.uk/  here...

Mark is the keyboardist for Moscow For Pleasure, a UK based mild rock band. Look them up on You Tube soon! I really like their music.

In an edit noted below on the 25th of July in the year of 2011!! I just found out that Mark Elvidge owns this Web site too, linked over to the UK. I had thought it changed hands! Oops! Joshua should have him as a guest on Speaking of Strange!

http://www.theparanormalnews.com

England's live Glastonbury Radio follows THE PARANORMAL NEWS- END. It has English music and similar guests to Coast to Coast AM. "Now THAT'S Weird" is the program.

www.nowthatsweird.co.uk

Edited while listening to Coast to Coast AM's free Streamlink Weekend.

Ross Hemsworth of "Now THAT'S Weird" radio in the UK will be a Coast to Coast AM guest Monday night June 15, 2009 with George Noory.


Or here with a 70's SCANIA log rig in Norway with sound ambiance...

  http://www.theparanormalnews.com/Archives


Now as the views race runs on let me slip in an edit of interest to some. I gave this tip to Ross last week. I doubt the web site's owner will agree to be on "Now THAT'S Weird."

    http://www.dianamystery.com

Pass this one around PDQ and if you do reply here to my thread. Give that last link a mention too!


You might want to read this one too from the L.E.M.U.R. Team's Paranormal Discussion Board on page 4.

Edited now related to a post in "Paranormal Discussion Board."

For sure geldor, this happening took place in Haywood county!

Last Wednesday evening a Toyota parts trucking trip allowed me to pass thru western North Carolina on Intersate 40 East of Waterville, Harmon Den Road and thru two tunnels. At the 10 mile marker a rest area sign for my sore eyes came into view.

So my non accident was not really that close to the Tennessee State line.

I hoped there would be at least one parking spot for my Falcon International tractor with it's 53 foot trailer. Low and behold there was just one spot left on the West end!

The parking lot was exactly the same to the left of the newer welcome center. Everything else was all re-done including an enlargement for parking. The grounds were landscaped nicely. For me there was an air about the place.

To my amazment there was another rest area across the highway that I did not remember. In 1989 I thought I remembered a rock wall there with chain link fencing placed high to keep rocks from falling on the pavement. I bet it was there at that time and I failed to even notice it after my experience!

Since the Kersey, Pennsylvania veneer log haulers told me to stay in Virginia to get to South Hill. I had not been back that way in twenty years. My memory of the curvy section of I-40 leading to the North Carolina Welcome Center was all fuzzy.

I got an empty bottle of 5 Hour Energy and with my knife I broke the soil loose near the curb. I filled the bottle with soil right from the spot where I hit the Freightliner.

I was glad to be back there!

I heard a great show last night on Coast to Coast AM. Joshua was on with George the last hour! 

What an eye opener for my sore truckin' eyes!

From Coast's daily Newsletter....

Last hour guest, paranormal investigator Joshua P. Warren shared updates on some of his latest projects, including his testing of a " psychotronic wheel," which showed some telekinetic properties under glass. Joshua, who has a new book just out, The Secret Wisdom of Kukulkan, will be making one-hour weekly appearances on C2C, George announced.

I can't modify the link in post # 1 for this web site about the paranormal in the USA. At Strange USA there is a Google Earth map of the remodeled welcome center. If you have stopped there let me know.

That web site goes with "Weird Stuff to Do"--Travel Tips!

That maps satellite pic is the best I have found. Google Earth's Ground View mainly shows the Welcome To North Carolina sign on I-40. Then well down the road you can follow the yellow arrows  > > > >  that stop well short of the rest area.

At the map of the USA click on North Carolina and then find Waterville's only entry. That will take you to a Google Earth map as a direct link would not go for some reason.


  http://www.strangeusa.com/Default.aspx



Here is the truck that went bump in the night. Along with my wonderful daughter. I am holding a huge leaf of the royal paulownia tree. These trees grow along I-40 in Western North Carolina. The paulownia logs we hauled were exported to Japan. Where another common name for the tree is the princess tree.

Here is some alternate news: In the USA the royal paulownia tree may have set an unpublished record for the price per board foot @ $36.00. One of the best black walnut veneer logs was priced @ $24.00. It went to the Atlantic Veneer Company in Beaufort, North Carolina.

My now missing pic probably used too many pixels and it went zip which is fine.

I travel that road all the time. It is creepy creepy late at night. My wife and I were making a get out of town run to Gatlinburg one night after work and we passed through about midnight. We were near the rest area when we rounded a curve and drove through yes through a herd of goats. I screamed and swerved and didn't hit anything. When I slowed down and pulled over I looked at my wife. She asked me if I saw goats too. We looked back. There weren't any goats.???????????? We broke a few speed limits getting back to civilization. PS we don't drink or do drugs. I don't believe in ghosts. I'm confused.

Hello Jim, I bet you are not far from Haywood County.

Edited Sunday evening; At Strange USA linked above I found Brevard South of Asheville. Brevard is represented with one UFO sighting at Strange USA on the NC map with cities listed. Likewise Waterville has one story of the weird kind,....SCANIA Hit!

That story is wild and you both witnessed it together. Great and supernat all the way. We can wonder if more goat herds are run thru on that curvy road.  Or if more tricks are played on unsuspecting drivers that we will never know about.    Joshua and company should spend more night times wandering that area of Haywood County! It is not far from Asheville by a long shot!

I was all eyes when I got your post! Steve Quayle is asking more about this story at L.E.M.U.R. He wants it sent in PDF form? My son says it's too much trouble. So I mailed it all to Lex Lonehood at Coast. I hope he sends it on to Bozeman, Montana.

Scratch that idea; Mark Elvidge at Mysterial was kind enough to send to the Q Factor as a PDF PDQ!!

http://users.boardnation.com/~shadowboxent/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=1890

I still lean toward a spirit guide unknown to me doing a miracle beside that sandy, black soil above here. 

Jim, I am glad we have that rest area in common. Yes, it is a creepy area where "The infamous Gorge" lies in wait for a night of freezing rain or snow. Hmm!

Ghostly goats and a white cabover truck....

Let's post up some more wild stuff. If someone posts here I will reply as I look everyday.....

Hello guys!

A few miles of Interstate 40 eastbound were narrowed to one lane due to repairs to some damage caused by a rockslide. This area is common ground for rockslides. One such occurrence closed Interstate 40 for several weeks in 1997. This was prior to the completion of Interstate 26 between Johnson City and Asheville, which caused many headaches driving on winding and steep two-lane roads.

Hello back to Kesha32,

We can't mention the name enough, The Gorge on I-40, and it is famous nationwide. Ranking with the infamous stretches of US highways where death comes to unaware motorists and truckers. Like Wolf Creek Pass, Mont Eagle, and Black Mountain to name just three more.

Snow and ice on highways is a given in North Carolina. Just as you enter Tennessee you will wonder where it all went!

In the Winter of 1989 I reloaded at South Hill, Virginia and trucked out a load of veneer backing boards West through The Gorge during an eight plus inch snowfall. Two or three of the truck wrecks in the mountains looked as if the trucker must have died. There were lots of cars messed up too! I made it through with much caution. My spirit guide must have aided my SCANIA 112M.

Then there was the time in February 1994. That we came out of Western Kentucky headed for New Albany, Indiana. With white oak veneer logs trucked over 90 miles of thick black ice (hard rain in 23 degrees temp), but that is another story of my angel guide's help.

I was not aware of all the rock slides and treacherous two lane detours. Heck! I am not even aware of the new Interstate 26 between Johnson City and Asheville.

And a white cab forward 1989? ghost-like Freightliner also.
I wonder if JimPetersenBrevard has more great stories? The impossible seems to happen around The Gorge!

It makes my day and night to get posts here. Even though my true story of the weird kind does not get a mention.

In an edit this morning 10/15/10; Here is a request to any one of the 21,685 good members. Please send this link or a copy of post # 1 to Art Bell for his Ghost to Ghost show on Halloween Night.

artbell@mindspring.com

He does read ghost-like Guiding Angel stories sent in for that night. I will send it to him again as usual. I hope this idea works well and I will be tuned in like some of you so dedicated here.

The time I noted above was 4:00 AM but on Eastern Time it would have been 5:00 AM. Without my weird experience and delay the drive time would have put my loaded rig into Asheville's rush hour traffic!

It's all true what the UK robot once told here. Those links are not active anymore.

Note: If you copy and paste this in an e-mail. Please start where it says, "Worldwide truck drivers tell tall tales....."

Another edit at 7:53 CST I just sent this story to Art Bell in Manila.

You may not know this, but part of that section of I-40 is dedicated to Trooper Giles Harmon with the NC Highway Patrol.  He was murdered back in the 1980s on the side of the road out there. 

I think your "accident" was to keep something really bad from happening to you somewhere down the line.  The paranormal and God work in mysterious ways.

Many thanks for this post BamberC and WELCOME to you this Halloween! My granddaughter in Florida celebrated her birthday yesterday on Halloween.

I am aware of Harmon Den Rd that is fairly close to the welcome center. That is always sad when a state trooper dies along a busy road. But he was murdered!? I am sorry for him and his family. It took way too long for state laws to place signs making traffic move over for the emergency workers.

Art Bell just repeated a well known message on Ghost to Ghost, "Ghosts seem to always appear at the scene of tragic deaths."

BamberC that morning I was inside one of the toughest truck cabs in America. A Swedish truck safety law required placing (gently) a 30,000 lb aluminum block on top of a test truck's cab. The doors must still function! SCANIA and VOLVO test weights at 33,000 lbs!

Yes, on the mysterious ways. Or maybe it could have been a car with passenger(s) so innocent headed to work, well ahead of my big load of logs. Now related to a single life or lives still residing in North Carolina's mysterious mountains.  Black Mountain is another famous hazard on that interstate highway.

Many Thanks! to any active member who sent this wild one to Art in Manila!

Here's how my true story went in Scotland at Unexplained Mysteries. And before it got it's deep layer of UM dust I got into minor battles with an idiot skeptic. He came pc flying into the battle unarmed!

http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=152891 />
Here is another thread at the dusty UM to ponder. Getting a Georgia tombstone trucker out of jail after he killed two ladies was a snap!

Mark Elvidge's robot is back to work! Mark is the keyboardist for the UK rock band Moscow.

The story of the week SCANIA Hit! And it is the only story heard and I just happened to click the link at my few posts at Unexplained Mysteries.

The old red radio must have been retired. Click on the Power and Control box. This is the same link found at the top of this true story. But just in case stay with this one.

Edited 3/25/11 with George Noory and Richard C. Hoagland in the headphones. The two links below are now offline. I hope some members downloaded the "SCANIA Hit!" Zip File in the Archived link. I have it but my son said it would not be possible to place it on paranormal websites.

http://www.theparanormalnews.com/on_air.htm

North Carolina is often compared to England as the most spooky place on the planet.

Thanks Mark! 

My gosh! In a PDQ edit Mark activated this link found in the top post....Unreal! If left on it keeps repeating just as it does in my brain every hour of the day and night. So relive it with me as you listen to A. I. Robot from Mysterial.

http://www.theparanormalnews.com/Archives


Ask Mark's robot plenty of questions here...

http://mysterial.org.uk/cgi-bin/index.cgi?action=showhtml&id=AI />


That link was bugged and won't connect right.
So go click the blue words seen there and then see the left side bar for Mysterial Extra

The blue words are...

"Click here to go back to the main page!"


;D

Also in an edit today here is Ross Hemsworth's new website and paranormal radio show in Glastonbury, England...

Hey Vance! 

This is the one that I had weird bad luck trying to tell Joshua and George Noory on Coast to Coast AM. I last talked to George about four months ago. I brought up Frank Edwards' book called "Strange World".

The plant guards were tuned in anyway. Heck, I might have gotten fired for telling this one. There is only a select few fellow drivers that I have told to date.


It seems that Mysterial's Mark Elvidge has re-greased and re-activated his robot. ; He may have let this next website go to anther party. A paranormal party! Mark's red radio at Mysterial was once at this link...

It's a new one for folks interested in the unknown. I have it bookmarked, again! 

http://www.theparanormalnews.com

Now I am off to Tullahoma, Tennessee for brand new padded dashboards. So "Buckle Up" everyone, so you won't have to test your dash's padding!



Oddly this link goes to space occupied by the old time ghostly red radio. That's not there anymore! LOL


http://www.theparanormalnews.com/on_air.htm

Like before everyone may have to turn it on by clicking power control...


Follow along word for word in the much older UK version....


http://www.theparanormalnews.com/Archives/

Worldwide lorry drivers tell tall tales, and 95% of them are true. We take most with a grain of salt of which some may be transporting that too. I bought and still own a SCANIA for transporting the best trees Mother Nature can grow.

In 1989 I was loaded with International Veneer Company's Illinois white oak headed to South Hill, Virginia a 760 mile trip. The near perfect logs were individually tagged and waxed. It was 4:00 am as I pulled into the first rest area out of Tennessee at the North Carolina line east of Waterville.

There was one spot left on the end next to a grassy median. Cars on the right and lorries on the left. I pulled straight in and set the brake on my Swedish lorry. One of 600 imported to the USA, and the only one with an aluminum tubing and wire brush guard.

I ate some cakes with milk, and to my amazement I perked up quickly. I noticed a lorry coming in with his lights on bright then stopping to my left behind me. I said on the CB radio, " I'm ready to leave now you can have my spot." He said nothing so I reversed moving 80,000 lbs 6-8 feet. I stopped like hitting a wall!! I'd hit the front of a lorry that was mostly blocking the car entrance. I didn't see it pull in behind me! I got a sick feeling as I jammed the brake. The damage was done and I had 1.5 million safe miles.

I got my flashlight and wondered if there was a long log hanging over a bit. I couldn't remember. There was no overhang, AND there was no damage to the truck I'd just slammed! I lit it up,....nothing,....the radiator should have been in the fan,...it shouldn't be running,....it was! I rubbed my hand over the smooth white metal. I looked for anti-freeze under the motor,....none anywhere! The Caterpiller motor had it's familiar sound. It was in perfect shape and I was stunned!

The driver was in the rest area building and never came out during my wide eyed investigation. I kept saying to myself, "What do I tell him? I've hit your lorry but there's no damage?" To my left a lorry rig left a space open, and I pulled left to park there.

It was breaking dawn as I looked at the white new cabover Freightliner sitting there running. I laid my head down over the wheel to rest,...to wait. It was gone when I woke up 15 minutes later! I still think about this every day and night!

Folks? Hit an aluminum soda can with a hammer. If you cannot dent it. That is what happened to me, wide awake and impossible to do!

Like my British friends have said. This could have been an angelic intervention delaying my trip, and avoiding an unknown danger in perfectly good driving weather! That is the only explanation I understand, but some have said it was a ghost driver's ghostly lorry. But at least I did touch it and there was form to touch.

Our little company was paying for random drug testing by a Connecticut company called Foley Laboratory Services, Inc. I did not take anything to stay awake. Remember, I was wide awake at the time this happened! Near the North Carolina border with the mysterious Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

This is my personal haunting of, "What in the heck happened that morning??"

I'm very familiar with that section of I-40. About 1988 - 89, a friend of mine and I were on our way to go whitwater rafting up at Nantahala. We were so engrossed in our conversation, I missed my turn at Hwy 19 and kept going on I - 40. It was very late at night and very dark, not much traffic. All of a sudden we realized we were in the gorge area, a few miles before you get to Tennessee. There was NO place to turn around so we had to drive quite a ways before we could turn around to head back in the right direction. The road is different now than it was back then. There were cliffs on either side of us and all of a sudden we saw a man standing in the middle of the road. I slowed down to keep from hitting him. He looked right at us as I drove past. It was about 20 minutes before I got turned around and headed back the other way. We never saw him again. It was weird.

dscher,

How strange and I hope more come in here with spooky happening like yours. I-40's interchanges and cross overs are few in number along the Gorge, the spooky Gorge! Hitchhiking is not legal on the interstates. The Gorge's concrete divider in the center has few openings for emergency traffic to use. Now we see in many states, 3 cables strung for miles doing the same thing. I suppose that keeps traffic from tangling in the opposite direction. I am all about highway safety and it seems the ghosts out there on I-40 can never go home! 

I appreciate your contribution and Vance does too. As we members who have contributed here need to keep the place fresh as a ghost's disappearing footprints!

There have been many, many wrecks in the gorge area over the years.  Could it have been some poor soul who died in a wreck?

Well Cody, there is more mysterious happenings in the I-40 Pigeon River Gorge.  Today, I was on my way back to Asheville after spending 5 days in Gatlinburg, TN.  I stopped at the NC visitor's center for a quick break.  I got back on the road and soon noticed, in my rear view mirror, an 18 wheeler right behind me.  The cab was green in color.  I looked forward to the highway and then glanced in the rear view mirror again.  The truck was gone!  It didn't pass me, nor were there any exits to take.  Even if it had slowed down, there was not enough time for it to be out of my sight.  There were no vehicles behind me so I could see back a good ways.  I remembered your story and slowed down a bit.  I did make it home to Asheville safe and sound.

Oh mercy sakes alive! This action of yours was in a notice via e-mail and I came here right off the bat! I never dreamed it would have been from you, since you were the last dedicated member to post in this weird Pigeon River Gorge account of mine from eighty-nine!

That was so weird owlwoman and this sort of truckin' phenomenon is not out for blood thank goodness!

You have joined the North Carolina "I-40 Lost Highway Club" with me and others who have posted above here. I hope there will be more someday with their spooky stories on that crazy stretch of the Eisenhower Expressway System numbered I-40 East in "The Gorge!"

We all are happy you arrived safely and you will never forget that green eighteen wheeler! I will show this to my family members PDQ.

Here is a post script to all who read this in an edit.

I sent this story once more to Coast to Coast AM for Ghost to Ghost on Halloween night. So far I have not been contacted and I doubt that I will get a phone call. It would have helped greatly if I had seen a ghost at that spooky welcome center West of Asheville. A herd of white ghostly goats would have been spooky too!

Oh well! There is always next year or maybe this Friday night on Open Lines will get it told. 

After I hopefully am finally able to tell George Noory "The Ode to Monsanto's CEO!"

That could be the case owlwoman, but how could a ghost bring a vehicle back in factory new, solid spirit form, that was crashed into the rocks of Pigeon River Gorge?

Over in the UK the paranormal experts tell us autos, trucks and ships are ghostly too!

  At the very least when we encounter one of the above, they are harmless to us.
