Here is the Tuesday night show from Pop Odyssey Radio in Nashville, Tennessee.

A little bit past center on the sound bar host Stephen Wren opened my call. I was not tuned in from the highway since the show is on line radio only.

When Stephen Wren introduces his guest host Phil Roell listen early on for him to say, "......things go bump in the night." That line fits this true account to a big T!

The sound bar is working OK here!   Minimize the screen and keep surfing the paranormal phenomenon around us all!

At least I finally told this true story on the radio. Time to move on down the Lost Highways.

Our interstate highways, state roads and rural roads are haunted. I have heard many spooky haunted road trips told on Coast to Coast AM.

Now let's see how haunted the roads are in the UK.....

MORE HAUNTED ROADS

A64 between York and Norton england Uk
Traditionally haunted by the spirit of Nance, who is said to guide travellers when there are dense mists. The story goes that she was due to marry a mail-coach driver but fell for the charms of a highwayman. He turned out to be a bad choice, as he left her and their baby to die of exposure on the lonely road.

Directions: A64 is to the North of York, between York and Norton.
  --------------------------------------------------------------

A4076 Road Ghost Wales UK

The following story of a 'Road Ghost' on the A4076 at Steynton appeared in a Wales media column, on the 7 August 2011. It had been written by a Robin Turner, and was entitled ' Paranormal experts investigate reports of ghostly figure appearing at Pembrokeshire crossroads'.  The article reads ......~

PARANORMAL investigators are looking into reports of a haunted crossroads and phantom crash victim spooking drivers on a lonely Welsh road.

A number of worried motorists who believe they have hit a woman on the rural A4076, near Haverfordwest, have left their cars to find no-one injured, and no trace of anyone who may have been in the roadway.

Around half a dozen confused drivers have contacted paranormal investigation group Pembrokeshire Beyond after encountering the mystery figure between the Pembrokeshire villages of Johnston and Steynton. But one of the group's investigators, Shaun Sables, says he believed many more motorists may have come across the ghostly road casualty. He states ~

"We have had around six people contacting us with the same story in the past year or so,"

"It's something we really need to investigate. They all report getting a glimpse of a woman in the corner of their eye as they approach the crossroads.

Then they are convinced they have hit somebody or something, they get out of their cars but find nothing."

Andy Chandler, another of the Pembrokeshire Beyond team received one of the reports earlier this year.

He said: "This story takes place between Johnston and Steynton in a dip in the road before the road rises up to the crossroads near The Horse And Jockey pub.

"A car full of X Factor fans on the way back from a concert crossed the small bridge at the foot of the hill.

"Suddenly the driver slammed the brakes on because she was sure she'd hit a young female with her car.

"Two of the of the four passengers were awake and also reported seeing the young female and feeling the car jolt as if impacted by something or someone.

"The driver left the vehicle to search for the poor unfortunate she thought she'd hit but was unable to locate her.

"Puzzled she began searching the vehicle for signs of damage... not a scratch, even though two other occupants of the vehicle had also felt the impact and saw the shape of a female hit the car and bounce off into the night. Did she hit a ghost? Was it the last moments of someone's life being replayed across time?" Mr Sables said the Pembrokeshire Beyond team planned to carry out an investigation at the spot.

He said: "It's hard to say what could be happening but a lot of people have reported the feeling that they have hit a pedestrian and that the pedestrian is a woman. It definitely needs to be looked into."

On 19th August 2011 this further article appeared in the Western Telegraph Newspaper entitled 'Yet another spooky encounter reported along haunted road'. A Milford Haven taxi driver was left spooked last week after an encounter on the same stretch of road where a phantom crash victim has reportedly been worrying motorists.

Steven Davies was returning to Milford Haven from a taxi run just after 11.30pm last Wednesday night when the figure, dressed in black 18th century costume with a white head scarf, ran in front of him on the, forcing him to slam on his brakes.

Mr Davies, a driver for Kitty Cabs, said: “My headlights were on full beam and this figure just appeared on the white road line and ran straight across the road in front of me down towards the farm lane.’ Paranormal investigators Pembrokeshire Beyond have opened a case file on the stretch of road after receiving a number of reports from worried motorists.

Mr Davies said he was left startled by the experience and was unaware of the recent publicity surrounding the reported paranormal sightings until he shared his experience with colleagues and family members .

A595 and The Muncaster Boggle

The A595 road running past Muncaster Castle from near Barrow in Furness to Carlisle has a long tradition of being haunted by the ghost of a Mary Bragg.

What is probably the earliest story of this road being haunted appeared in an 1870 pamphlet entitled ‘The Muncaster Boggle’ written by J Burroughs and published by Callander & Dixon of Whitehaven.

The Story goes ........

On the morning of the first of May, 1862, I started in a gig from Holborn Hill, intending to do a little business at Kirksanton, Sylecroft, and Bootle, and arrive at Ravenglass in good time in the evening, but having been kept rather longer than usual at Bootle, I found I had lost the tide, so I was obliged to travel round by Seaton and Corney. The day had been exceedingly sultry, so I jogg'd leisurely along, enjoying the beautiful landscape before me. The evening tide was running up the Esk as bright and smooth as glass, like some gigantic mirror, in which was reflected the uplands and forest trees, inverted as if by magic, or as though they had agreed to all dip together to refresh after the heat of the day. The birds were singing each his own favourite song to cheer up his mate, very likely sitting on her eggs at that season of the year; and the ploughmen were whistling after their teams returning home from their labour- altogether it was a picture of peace and rural contentment; but on the opposite side, away to the east, I observed a threatening black cloud rising over the fells from Ulpha and Coniston, and though I could hear occasional sounds of distant thunder, I could not avoid watching the capricious manner of the clouds' progress; sometimes the whole mass would advance swiftly and steadily, then little bolting spiral vapours would fly off in all directions, like scouts before an approaching army! then again the main body would move on and expand quicker and blacker, until the whole horizon was envelop'd in a dense, thick darkness, not at all like the usual darkness of night, but a dismal, heavy, horrible darkness, I suppose something like the Plague darkness that was inflicted upon Egypt- a darkness that could be felt. the rolling thunder kept approaching still nearer and louder, and the lightnings were flashing in my eyes incessantly, leaving their zigzag lines for a few seconds on the sides of the hills, like a mysterious warning handwriting on the wall.

A little beyond the Muncaster bridge, I overtook an old man who seemed rather lame. I drew up to him, and, after the customary saalutation about the threatening appearance of the weather and such like, I inquired how far he was going? "Wey I'se gean heam," says he "what for?" Well, I said, I only wished to know if he was going much further my road. "Wey than" says he, "Ise gaen ta Rebbenglass if ye mun know." I rather liked the cautious though surly and independent bearing of the old fellow, so I told him I was most anxious to have a guide, as I had never been that road before to Ravenglass, and begged him, as a great favour, to take a seat beside me in the trap. "Wey than" says he "if ye want somebody to show ye't wey I'll dea that for ye, and thank ye fer't lift ano, fer Ise nin sa lish at wokin- so I gave him a hand, and we toiled on slowly up the hill towards Muncaster, watching the repeated flashes, and listening to the rolling discharges of the near approaching thunder.

"By and bye," says the old man, "I think it wadn't be an unlikely time fer't Munkister Boggle to be stirran, sic a neet as this, if it be tely fwore yet." "What do you mean by Muncaster Boggle," I eagerly inquired, "and what is it?" "Wey that is a capper," says he, "if ye'v niver hard tell o't Munkister Boggle, bit yan hes hard them set et ye book-larn'd fwoke hed nowt else off." And on my admitting my ignorance, and that I should like to hear some account of the mysterious boggle, he thus began: "Yo'l mind than, what ise gaen to tell ye happen't gaely near sebbenty year sen- Mr. Grice was't parson at Drigg and Irton, an' he leev't at that time in yon girt hoos, at Rebbenglass, at old Mrs. Thomson leeves in noo; an' he hed a hooskeeper at they coa't Mary Bragg, she was as nice a lass as ever step't, an' a gay canny deacent young chap they coa't John Pike'tho coortit her, an thout a gay bit on her an o; he was't hoos steward fer Lord Munkister; bit Miss Littledel 't hooskeeper ar 't Cassel, thout just as much o him, an was gaely jelles at poor lass, fer she wantit em o tul hersell. It sooa happen't at t' Priest fwoke went off a visitan an hed ta be away fer o lock o days, than Miss Littledel teak a kashon ta gang ta Whitehebben aboot 't seam time, an she hire't Scot, 't hack shaise keeper ta drive her heam agean ta Munkister, an that was o reet eneuf if things hed nobbet stop't thear; bit aboot yan o'clock at mwornin, Scot and yan Kit Gale 't cwoachman at 't Cassel, dreave 't seam shaise throo Rebbenglass street, turn't aboot on t' scar an dreave up agean tul Mr. Grice duer, than they nock't poor Mary Bragg up, an perswadit her at John Pike'tho hed been tean varra bad, an was like ta dee; an she mud gang than and thear if she wantit ta see him alive, seea she just lock't up duer an tie't key tull her brat string, an jump't intult shaise an set off, lal thinkan what was ta happen."

Just then we were pulling up a short steep part of the road through the Muncaster wood, and as we were in the act of passing under an old spreading oak, there shot forth the most fearful flash of lightning I ever witnessed; it was like a solid flame of fire, which filled the whole forest, and so intensely bright that even the smallest twigs were as visible as at mid-day, and the next instant a dreadful thunder-clap began crackling and crashing right over our heads, as if the very heavens were coming down upon us to destroy us "in the twinkling of an eye." I was really terrified, I fairly crouched down, and crep't into my shell, if I may use that metaphor,- but rousing up again a little, I began to think of the real danger of being under the trees at such a time, and was just on the point of giving the horse a little taste of the whip, when my fellow traveller seized the reins, and at the same time cried "wohoy!" Well if I was afraid before, I was now completely palzied with fear, the shock was so very sudden and unexpected. "Wey man," says the old fellow, "ye need'nt be sa scar't, I tell ye thear will'nt as much as a singel cushet tummel fra a tree this neet, widout God bids it, an I warrent ye beath ye an me 'el dee in oor beds efter o this."- and the old man bowed down his head- "bit it was'nt ta tell ye that at I stop't t horse, for" says he, "I've stopt' ta tell ye , at we er just stannen on't varra spot whore poor Mary Bragg com be her deeath; it was just here at tean o them hellish scoundrels jamp intelt shaise beside her, and when she was aboot screaman oot murder, he ram'd his pistol, intul her mouth and blew her brains oot."

It just then commenced raining, so we wrapped up, and as I was quite put out of the humour of asking any more questions, I allowed the old man to keep the reins, and drive down to Ravenglass, which he did skilfully and quickly. It was a perfect deluge before we alighted at Wallace's; however we got housed as smartly as possible, and had our clothes changed and sat down by a comfortable fire. I then ordered tea and chops for two, and after we had partaken of the good things provided for us, I begged the old man to finish his horrid tale. "Wey bit mappen ye nay think Ise leean," says he, "bit I know my words is gaely nar't spot, fer o it niver was mead oot quite clear, at 't time it happen't; bit suer aneuf efter them fellows hed kill't 't poor lass, they teak her doon intult hags, they likely thout she wad niver be fund tull't dogs hed gean wi her o tegidder; bit it happen't et a lad they coa't Joe Brockbank fand her 't next day, when he went to fodder some stricks, an he ran an tell't old Beatman 't gardner, an Dubbleby, 't gamekeeper, an they order't hem at his parrel ta tell neabody net a singel word aboot it, er they wad o be coa't up, an thear wad be a terrible flare up, an mebby o be hanged; hooiver 't nesh't neet she was hidden agean, an she was latit beath hee an low fer lang, tull at last some o them spiet her claes wavan about, in a girt wholl in 't Esk beck, just aboon't steps, her body was quite sandit up; efter that she was brout doon tul Bill Jonson's, at t' Fish public hoose."

The old man here seemed a little affected and paused to take breath and another taste from his glass, when I took the opportunity to say I hoped the cold-blooded murderers were justly and severely punished for the dreadful crime. "Nout at mak," says he, "things was carrit on quite in a different way than tull what they er noo-a-days. There was a swort ev a Crowner's Quest Jury held oor her, bit Docter Bragg an Taylear cudn't be gitten ta say whedder she hed been shot, er droon't, she hed been liggan sa lang in't watter; an her heed med ha been crush'd amang 't steans er chig'd wid eels, fer out they could tell; bit it was whisper't they'd gitten a gay penny fer sayan that. Sooa't crowner tell't t' jury thear was nea way for't than, bit set doon fund droon'd, ivery yan aboot 't Cassel gat orders niver ta speak on't er they mud leave 't pleace 't seam day; bit o't neyberhood sed sham, an toke't plenty aboot it fer lang efter. I dunnet want ta judge neabody consarn'd, bit nit yan at hed a hand i't job ever threave efter. Kit Gale t' cwoachman was tean up aboot Lunnon fer heeway robbery, an' hang't; Scot t' shay driver was brocken up in less ner a twelvemonth, an' than turn't quite lunatic an' dee't ravan mad at last; old Mister Dubbleby, t' gamekeeper, was droon't ya neet in a girt whol, aboot a hundred yards frae't spot whore Mary Bragg was fund; Miss Littledel was pack'd off, an' went te Whitehebben, an' she gat t' neam o' murderess us lang as she was alive an' lang efter; an' fer Pike'tho, neabody cud tell whedder he hed owt ta dea wi't murder er nit, bit he hed fer sarten adre a bad conscience er a brocken heart, fer he niver was happy efter, an' hardly quite reet at times,- he niver durst sleep by his-sell, ner sit in his oan hoose widoot hevan t' door lock'd; Dr. Taylear was droon'd at Egormuth brig end, nit aboon twenty yards fra whore Mary's bredder leav'd, an' Dr. Bragg went quite mopy lang afoor he dee't."

"But what connection do you make out between these shocking events and the Muncaster Boggle you spoke of?" I inquired. "Wey I hardly teak ye ta be se daft as o that nader," says he, "what it's plain eneuf at t' poor lass dudn't git justice deun, sooa she cudn't rist, but wander't aboot t' rwoads, an' woods at neets, in a white sheet, an' o ways, an thear was varra few fokes bit what hed ader gitten a flay their-sells er hard tell o' somebody else at hed seen her- thear was that poor Will Smith gat sec a scarin he niver dow't efter, an when any body ax't hem oout aboot it he went off in intel stiracks in a minnet, bit it he dud'nt leve varra lang efter, poor fellow."

"Then do you believe all these tales, or did you ever see anything of the sort yourself?" I asked, but I saw I had wounded the old chap's honour, for he spoke very excitedly, "I sud think I'd 'casion eneuf ta believe it, I niver saw nowt, sartenly, mesell, but I yance hard summet, an' I hard it as fair as I hard your teeth clatteran togidder a cumman up by 't old yak, an' neabody sall iver persuade me at it wasn't a Boggle. An' if I mun tell ye, I was gaen doon't old hag's rwoad ya black windy neet, te cross's watter by't steps; when I was gaen by 't old hay-shade, I hears somebody cumman efter ma, thinks I it's some woman-body, fer its gaely leet a fwoot, sooa I hung back tull't gat up to ma, an' when it was aboot anenst ma, I says 'its a gay wild neet this,' bit nout spack, still 't feet patter't away doon 't rwoad wi ma, tull we gat tull 't watter, ebben beside pleace whore they fand Mary Bragg, when it just streak ma at it mud be hur I hed fer company; an' by gocks I dudn't tak mesell time te grape fer't steps, bit I intul't beck in a bit ov a flurry, an' fairly ran across, an mead 't watter flee aboot me lugs, tull I was wet through an' through, an' oor head an' o; bit I niver venter't that rwoad agean, an 't varra next year efter they poo't 't old shade doon, an' mead yon new brig, an 't new rwoad, an' than stop't that old way by 't watter up o tegidder, an I niver hard tell ev 't Munkister Boggle been seen sen."

The A75, Kinmount Straight, Scotland Uk

Hauntings on the A75 Kinmount Straight in South West Scotland Uk have led to it being called 'the Ghost Road.' Here is a list of some of the ghostly sightings seen along this route.

1957
A lorry driver ran into a couple crossing the road arm-in-arm in front of his lorry, but when he stopped the accident victims had vanished: sometime in 1957.

1962
Derek and Norman Ferguson were driving along the A75 near Kinmount, around midnight, when a large hen flew towards their window screen, but vanished on the point of impact. The hen was followed by an old lady who ran towards the car waving her outstretched arms. She was followed by a screaming man with long hair and further animals, including 'great cats, wild dogs, goats, more hens and other fowl, and stranger creatures', who all disappeared. The temperature then dropped, and when the brothers stopped the car, it began to sway violently back and forth. Derek got out of the car and the movement stopped. He climbed back in and then, finally, a vision of a furniture van came towards them before disappearing.

1970's
A group of Eastriggs women saw a 'weird' looking phantom or creature' on the Kinmount straight

1995 March
Garson and Monica Miller of Annan were driving east on the Kinmount section of the A75, near Annan, when they saw someone in their path. It was the figure of a middle aged man, wearing a hessian sack folded over his head and his hands were outstretched towards the direction of the car, with what looked like a rag in his hand. Driving at 60mph the couple were convinced they had hit the man, and reversed back to the spot, but the figure had gone. the incident was reported to the police in Annan.

1997 July
Donna Maxwell, 27, was convinced she had hit a man in the road whilst driving along the A75 near Swordwellrig with her two children. Travelling at 50 mph she saw the man jump out in front of her, about two feet in front of her car. He was in his 30's, with short hair, wearing a red top and dark trousers. She braked hard, involuntarily closing her eyes and bracing for impact. When she opened her eyes, the car had stopped but there was no sign of the man. She contacted the police and the area was searched but there was no evidence of an accident. A description of the accident issued to the media a week later failed to provide any further explanation of the accident.


Now I will go back to the UK for another similar listing. So stand-by for some more alternative news from their Lost Highways.

Britain's spookiest roads

The M6 has been named Britain's most haunted road in a new Halloween survey.

The M6's spooky reputation follows with reports of phantom Roman soldiers, a ghostly woman and a lorry driving against the flow of traffic.

Motorists have also reported eyes looking out from bushes in Platt Lane, Leigh, Manchester - the scene of a mining disaster years previously.

The A9 in the Highlands was the second most haunted after a family reported seeing an ornate coach and horses, along with bewigged footmen.

The road appears again at number eight in the list, produced by Tarmac, following a sighting of a Victorian-clad man on a horse at The Mound between Dornoch and Golspie.

There were reports of a phantom dog on Great Yarmouth High Street and ghostly children playing in Gloucester Road, Finsbury Park, north London.

A guardian angel voice allegedly alerted a woman driver of an out-of-control car on the B4293 in Devauden in Wales and a lady in Victorian dress was reportedly spotted on the B3314 near Tintagel in Cornwall.

Tony Simmons, sightings co-ordinator for Tarmac, said: "We compiled the top 10 on the basis of the clarity of sightings rather than just the number of spooky experiences.

"At this time of year it's easy to mistake swirling mist for something more sinister and we wanted to make sure we were listing truly spooky sightings."

The spooky top ten in full:

1 The M6

2 The A9 in the Highlands

3 Platt Lane, Leigh, Manchester

4 High Street and Suffield Road in Great Yarmouth

5 Gloucester Drive, Finsbury Park, north London

6 The B4293 at Devauden, Wales

7 The B3314 near Tintagel, Cornwall

8 The Mound, on the A9 near Dornoch

9 The B1403 near Doncaster, South Yorkshire

10 Drews Lane, Ward End, Birmingham

Are you familiar with the Hairy Hands of Dartmoor? I had read about it in a legends/lore book when in 6th grade. I had forgotten all about it until I read this post. I ran a google search (not knowing what I'd find when I type in "hairy hands" into an internet search) and came up with this. It looks as though the myth was disproven, but some interesting stories came out of it.

Thanks to you Joe, we are aware now! This website is real slow handed it's self moving from one screen to the other. It must be the spooky weather we're havin'.

In closing we can be glad this inching along thread originating from western North Carolina's VERY SPOOKY Pigeon River Gorge, jogged your memory from the 6th grade to now. Thanks for posting the story I was not familiar with and I hope everyone is spooked from reading it like I was.

Now we know why tiny crosses are worn about the neck, or the reason why crosses and Mother Mary statues are affixed to a vehicles dash board, besides for blessing one's safe driving practices.

Any inter dimensional enity OUT THERE must suffer from space boredom!

I just sent this in to Amy Newmark who is the author for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books!

http://www.chickensoup.com

I had never heard of her books. So this true 1989 truck bashing West of Asheville will mix it up with thousands of fresh submissions. Wish me luck!




Good morning to Amy on another great Coast show with George Noory,


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 the best trees Mother Nature can grow.

In 1989 I was loaded with International Veneer Company's Illinois white oak headed for South Hill, Virginia a 760 mile trip. The near perfect logs were individually tagged and waxed on the ends. It was 4:00 am as I pulled into I-40's first rest area out of Tennessee after the North Carolina state line east of Waterville at the 10 mile post.

There was one spot left on the end next to a grassy median where cars were parked on the right and semi-trucks were parked on the left. I pulled straight in and set the brake on my Swedish truck. One of 600 imported to the USA, and the only one with an aluminum tubing brush 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, 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 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. 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 Caterpillar 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 I saw an open space, and I pulled left to park there.

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

Amy here is the unedited UK version thankfully spoken by Mark Elvidge's robotic voice in London.

I do believe my Guardian Angel or someone's Guardian Angel delayed my log rig from a potential bad wreck during Asheville, NC's I-40 rush hour.


Cody in Indiana and thanks for your great Chicken Soup for the Soul books.

Log in to You Tube and scroll down to my few comments from a year ago. Before the thumbs up or thumbs down ratings were removed. My first comment had the most votes! 

I've also posted my SCANIA Hit! Guardian Angel's time delay story under many Swedish logging videos where SCANIA log trucks are seen in the forests. 

Here is one example and watch for my name well down the comments page.

Editing a bit on Sunday AM: John B. Wells on Coast last night with Mat Stein having to tell the 10 million + or -  listeners how our power grid could go down after a large X-Class Solar Flare/ CME's direct hit on the States nuke!! & coal power grid.

Mat noted we should not gamble away the 2 billion dollar cost to easily harden the grid that could place the country back into the horse and buggy days for the survivors.

Sing along with Red ooosyadady and this is a great example of a truck driving song. One with a very spooky ending for a trucker's ghost story!


"PHANTOM 309" by Red Sovine of Tennessee

I was out on the West Coast, tryin' to make a buck
And things didn't work out, I was down on my luck
Got tired a-roamin' and bummin' around
So I started thumbin' back East, toward my home town.

Made a lot of miles, the first two days
And I figured I'd be home in week, if my luck held out this way
But, the third night I got stranded, way out of town
At a cold, lonely crossroads, rain was pourin' down.

I was hungry and freezin', done caught a chill
When the lights of a big semi topped the hill
Lord, I sure was glad to hear them air brakes come on
And I climbed in that cab, where I knew it'd be warm.

At the wheel sat a big man, he weighed about two-ten
He stuck out his hand and said with a grin
"Big Joe's the name", I told him mine
And he said: "The name of my rig is Phantom 309."

I asked him why he called his rig such a name
He said: "Son, this old Mack can put 'em all to shame
There ain't a driver, or a rig, a-runnin' any line
Ain't seen nothin' but taillights from Phantom 309."

Well, we rode and talked the better part of the night
When the lights of a truck stop came in sight
He said: "I'm sorry son, this is as far as you go
'Cause, I gotta make a turn, just on up the road."

Well, he tossed me a dime as he pulled her in low
And said: "Have yourself a hot cup on old Big Joe."
When Joe and his rig roared out into the night
In nothin' flat, he was clean out of sight.

Well, I went inside and ordered me a cup
Told the waiter Big Joe was settin' me up
Aw!, you coulda heard a pin drop, it got deathly quiet
And the waiter's face turned kinda white.

"Well, did I say something wrong?" I said with a halfway grin
He said: "Naw, this happens every now and then
Ever' driver in here knows Big Joe
But son, let me tell you what happened about ten years ago."

"At the crossroads tonight, where you flagged him down
There was a bus load of kids, comin' from town
And they were right in the middle, when Big Joe topped the hill
It could have been slaughter, but he turned his wheels."

"Well, Joe lost control, went into a skid
And gave his life to save that bunch-a kids
And there at that crossroads, was the end of the line
For Big Joe and Phantom 309"

"But, every now and then, some hiker'll come by
And like you, Big Joe'll give 'em a ride
Here, have another cup and forget about the dime
Keep it as a souvenir, from Big Joe and Phantom 309!" 

Have you heard of 'Six Days On The Road' by Dave Dudley? I watched him sing this nations favorite trucker's song in Florence, Kentucky in 1975. 

Here it is...so tune in and come back here to read the lyrics.

As this recording was heard often over the years, the nations big truck driver's tires spun trillions of miles to this tune!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fAtSZR93yo />

"Six Days on the Road" - Dave Dudley of Wisconsin

Well I pulled outta Pittsburgh a rollin' down that Eastern Seaboard
I got my diesel wound up and she's a runnin' like a never before
There's a speed zone ahead but alright I don't see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight

I got me ten forward gears and a Georgia overdrive
I'm takin' little white pills and my eyes are open wide
I just passed a Jimmy and a White I been a passin' everything in sight
Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight

Well it seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye
I could have a lotta women but I'm nota like a some the guys
I could find one to hold me tight but I could never make believe it's alright
Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight

[ guitar ]

ICC is a checkin' on down the line
Well I'm a little overweight and my log book's way behind
But nothin' bothers me tonight I can dodge all the scales alright
Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight

Well my rig's a little old but that don't mean she's slow
There's a flame from her stack and that smoke's ah blowin' black as coal
My hometown's a comin' in sight if you think I'm ah happy you're right

Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight
Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight
Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight

  For the second time in a few days Mark Elvidge's talking A.I. Robot is off line. It's the fifth time since 2011. He is taking care of both of his parents with dementia at home while working as a radio station's engineer/computer expert.

REF: A.I. Robot's status. He's avoiding hackers! Grr!

Mark is probably greasing ole A.I. Robot as I type this short note.


So he'll be back on line soon and heard around the clock. Mark's sites were being hacked and he is moving his web wonders to a better protected server. Facebook's messaging system worked it's magic for SCANIA Hit!

Of all the paranormal forums (so dusty these days) that A.I. can be heard telling my weird North Carolina experience. Only one comment has ever been made about Mark's efforts for me. Mysterial's White Dove of Croydon, England get's the credit!







Paranormal trivia early this morning: At 1 AM my next trailer for auto parts was 5311424. When my rig was turning into the steel fabrication plant I thought of the last three numbers 424. At the exact same synchronous second a radio ad man gave out a toll free number 800-424-****. Each number as I thought about them were spoken in perfect synch on the radio!

Thanks for the 7,000 and 4 views and the last few were mine. Of that number, over the years at the Official L.E.M.U.R. Discussion Board / "Weird Stuff to Do"--Travel Tips!, credit me with about 400 of the views.

If the Englishman's controlled robot told story never comes back on line it had a good run of 4 years.

Vance posted this news today and I've borrowed his nice post to let it rest quietly under North Carolina.

I've studied this link and I like the title to my true Guardian Angel's time delay or a North Carolinian's Guardian Angel who removed my log rig's time line East bound on I-40 about the time traffic got rushed in Asheville! 5:30 AM EST!

1.5 Million Safe Miles

Joshua's latest book is out and I received my copy today. It is a great treat. Bite-sized stories by the dozens, dealing with every fathomable form of phenomena and submitted by Josh's friends, readers and listeners, many of them contributors to this forum.

The Amazon preview includes a lot of free sample pages, so if you need convincing, check it out!

http://www.amazon.com/Was-Dark-Creepy-Night-Encounters/dp/1601633289

I was pleased to see Cody's classic Carolina rest stop story published within its pages and an example of my own strange family lore from the mountains appears as "The Legend of Red Blood Rock."

Would make a great gift and is sure to become a classic of the genre. This is the stuff that Speaking of Strange was spawned from!
   
P.S.

At Daily Snopes' "Spook Central" it was just crickets chirping ten years ago!

Joshua and Andrea Saarkopple are speaking in my headphones during Speaking of Strange (August 23) highlighting "It Was A Dark and Creepy Night"!! 

I can't wait to get my copy!



It is possible to over analyze when one strains his or her brain for reasons for my unexplainable experience at the I-40 rest park in North Carolina.


W
T
C

Those three very large white letters were printed on my black custom - reflective mud flaps at the rear of our re-modified (oil field pipe) 1977 HD HOBBS (log) trailer.

Besides my Guardian Angel or someone else's Guardian Angel creating a delay in my travels, and with me having the same home town as Robert W. Roll who wrote REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR in chalk on the old schools sidewalk, maybe it was thousands of Guardian Angels trying to highlight the 3 large letters X 2 at rear of the rig!

Literally thousands upon thousands of grain trailers, flat beds and livestock trailers nationwide carry a trailer manufactures logo displaying WT with a sideways C on the bottom. Our 3 stacked letters was based upon that well known American logo.


(Edited a short time after posting - Go to Remember Pearl Harbor in white chalk on this site. That link would not work right once posted)



I've always thought about that since 1993 and 2001, tho I've never written about it publicly here or anywhere else. George Noory always says, "There are no coincidences!"


MK Cody 


One day I may add more personal synchros seemingly related to this non accident next to the border of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Here's me driving my Dad's semi truck pulling his empty light weight 40' possum bellied trailer one night long ago in Kentucky, and here's what transpired on an impulse!

http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=261442&hl= />

May the view count rise over in Scotland!   

  And here too!

Thanks for the 7,700 views of which several hundred are credited to me!


Greyhound buses or any other passenger bus in the U.S.A., well before our Interstate system was built, were known to pass semi trucks on two lane roads. It was a logical move to advance passengers right along. But at times there were illogical passes to experience first hand. 

I suppose back then it was a trucker's goal to pass a Greyhound, but mostly it was just in their imaginations or prayers. I will admit it was never my goal, but that changed on just one night. Years ago Dad was passed a lot by them and sometimes he did brake to prevent close calls by buses.

Dad passed away on May 18, 1974. The following January 7, 1975 I was running empty and headed for my last load of hogs in western Kentucky. As I left Henderson, KY a Memphis, TN bound Greyhound bus was just leaving a railroad crossing after the driver did his  STOP - LOOK  &  LISTEN.

Something clicked in my head related to my Dad's livestock trucking years. I punched my 318 Detroit Diesel motor thinking his motor was probably the same engine. I put my toe to the top of the fuel pedal to get the cable fully extended at the fuel pump. In a few miles I could tell I was gaining on the bus! 

I was up to 65 mph and going downhill into a little valley that came up "just right" on the two lanes of U.S. 60. I caught the Greyhound bus and pulled out to pass using up the total legal passing zone to do it! 

I did that attempt on quick impulse to pass a Greyhound bus with success for my Dad named Jack!

A Truckers Prayer - Dave Dudley


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0KY_oMyvGQ />

Turn it on to sing along..... 

Songwriters: Thornton, Jim / Turner, Scott

Thank you Lord for all the miles without an accident
But I wanna ask just one more favor before my life is spent
Please Lord this once before I turn to dust
Let me run the wheels plumb off a Greyhound bus

You know I have been running these highways in this old rig for a long long time
And I have been humiliated by them dang buses till it's a crime
And even when I'm empty gettin' all that she's got in high
Huh, they just blow them air horns and flash them lights and fly on by
Now if I had me a rig that'd do about a hundred under the great big load
I'd wind her up tight and I'd blow me one of them grey dogs plumb off the road 

So Lord before my last run to the foot of them mighty golden stairs
I hope there'll be an answer to this poor old trucker's prayer
But thank you Lord for all the miles without an accident
But I really do want to ask just one more favor before my life is spent
Please Lord this once before I turn to dust
Let me run the wheels plumb off a Greyhound bus

While the weekend is still young, here is my 2nd contribution at Unexplained Mysteries in Jokes and Humor

http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=264086 />

A few years back I was on a pirate radio station out in Greeley, Colorado. I did not tell the truckin' story in my signature, but I had planned to in an outline sent to the station prior to that phone call.

I was awakened unexpectedly by the host. He rushed me putting me right on the air and I was not a happy coal trucker. 

Here is what I told the farm/ranch and city folks of Greeley...... 



Just after sunset in 1978 on US Highway 41 North of Evansville, Indiana, the semi-truck weigh station sign said "OPEN" on a Friday evening. I turned into the lane and waited my turn with a "luckily legal" weight of marketed *hogs. Indiana's tallest state trooper was standing behind his shiny white cruiser to my left.

My turn for the truck tandem scales came and I pulled forward. Instantly I heard what sounded like a rain gutter's downspout pouring water on an upside down wash tub.

The noise was a gilt*, a young lady pig, cutting loose on his car from bumper to bumper all centered with her excess water passing through the American livestock trailer's lower side vent.

This was a highly arched unbelievable sight and the tall trooper was looking down and waving me on smartly! Her splashes in the bright security lighting resembled 10,000 sparkling diamonds that most surely took the fresh polish off his car!

When they all walked off 30 minutes later. I patted each pig in the bigger top middle section. I felt good knowing I patted the little lady that was gilty.


The station host was not too happy with that true tale. Neither was I in the fact that he called and woke me up!







*Market pig terms: Barrows are the neutered males and the females are gilts and together on the CB radio a semi-trailer's full load was termed "go go" girls!

Thanks to Joshua's e-mail on his 1 night only ghost hunt in Asheville's Masonic Temple/ Asheville Mystery Museum he provided a map to find the location.

So being new to Map Quest I traveled West on Intersate 40 and now I know the name of the rest area where I backed into the white Freightliner cabover semi truck!  

Fines Creek Rest Area

http://www.mapquest.com/?hk=y5P1sv&icid=embed_viewLargerMap#f11bfc5799d818d202f54eb4

Aw shucks! The rest stop's name was searched and that was the link for Waynesville, and it came up right. But it still goes only to the Asheville Mystery Museum "push pin" locator. So "Go West" on I-40 to Waterville Lake and the rest stop is on the North end.


The link should be centered on Waynesville, so zoom in on "satellite", & go North to Waterville Lake next to I-40 and you'll see the rest stop. It was a lot smaller in 1989.

Thanks to all visitors for helping to top 8,000 views found just this morning! All total in the UK and the USA there have been over 55,000 views (& climbing daily) of my SCANIA's Hit!
