One Headlight

I often travel between cities in Southern California. My best friend lives 70 miles away from my hometown, but thanks to freeways, it’s usually only an hour drive. Since traffic is insane in the LA area, I fell into the habit of only making the commute in the middle of the night. At 3am, the only people on the road are usually truckers, and a sparse few cars. I don’t have to concentrate too hard, and I can catch up on podcasts. My parents were always uncomfortable with me driving such a distance alone in the wee hours of the morning, but I always shrugged it off as the usual parental paranoia, until one night.

I had told my parents I was going to be home by midnight that night. I had work in the morning, so I my fun-filled weekend with my best friend had to come to an end. But, I pushed it. 11, 12, 1 in the morning all passed me by as we shoveled chips into our faces and watched funny youtube videos together. When it was about 2:15 am, I finally decided it was time to head out. My parents were probably asleep anyways and didn’t even know I was coming home so late. My friend was getting really tired, and instead of walking me out to my car like she usually did, she decided to go to sleep. We said our goodbyes and I stepped out of the door onto the porch.

so he drove out to the farm to pick it up. there were 3 cars of secret service agents. he picked up the container and the cars followed him. and needed to go to a military base out in Nevada.

Trucker Break-In

Let me just start off with I am not a trucker but I have had a scary experience with one. This happened in 2011 when I still lived with my parents when I was 15 and we where heading towards Canada for a vacation. About half way there we saw a broken down semi     on the side of the road. So we stopped to see if he needed help.

The man said that he had no diesel and needed to get to a Motel to sleep for the night. So my dad told him to hop in. I was not sure about this man sitting in the back with me. And I asked him if he was going to leave his trailer and he just looked at me. Thats when I started to get a chill down my neck so we dropped the man off at a hotel 8 six miles away from were we live.

the boy walking in the ditch

I am a long haul trucker, I have been for 5 years now and while I’ve ment plenty of drivers with their own horror stories I hadn’t really gone through anything crazy before now. This story isn’t super scary but I gets to me and I want to share it, I’ve been a fan of darkness prevails for awhile and I thought this would be a good place to do it.

I was hauling popcorn in Georgia and somtimes we load in pretty desolate places, this particular farm was about an hour drive from Atlanta. It was far, really far from civilization and I was starting to think my GPS was leading me in circles, everything looked the same and it was getting dark when I saw somthing I definitely haven’t seen before. It was a little boy he couldn’t have been older then 5 years old, he was crying, waving at me and mouthing the words “please, stop”! I slowed down quite a ways away from the kid I felt terrible for him but at the same time somthing felt really wrong here, there was nothing but woods, no houses no cars that I could see just a kid standing in the middle of nowhere. I immediately called the cops to report it and they made sure to get my exact location and told me to stay in the truck and watch the child.  I was still torn between listening to my gut and helping this defenceless child I’m glad I listened and stayed in the truck as cowardly as that sounds. He was looking around frantically, still crying but not coming towards the truck! The police responded surprisingly fast (as to be expected when there’s a child involved) and as the sirens came into ear shot 2 all black escalades came out of the woods a booked it away from there 1 cop grabbed the kid and the others gave chase. The one with the kid came to my truck and talked to me, after awhile he explained this was a gang initiation and after I gave my statement they wouldn’t say anything more. The kid was terrified but unhurt and he and I both were lucky we left the desolate, unforgiving back road alive that night.

Gas Station Pedo

Gas Station Pedo 

Early 2014 my family opened a gas station in New Mexico. It was a rinky-dink little convenient store. It was right in front of the local grocery store and to the right of it was my mothers salon. 

I was 14 at the time, am now 17. For being a girl who developed early, I was used to grown men mistaking me for someone of age and flirting with me, but what I experienced working at the gas station was something that keeps me on edge around truckers and truck stops.
