My Encounter With the Jersey Devil – Duplicate

I’ve been interested in hiking for a long time. After middle school, I actually had more time to do that than less, even with high school work. During the break, I visited one of my friends in New Jersey for his 16th birthday. His parents got him a new camera with night vision and video recording capabilities, so I suggested we test it out. He said “Let’s go to the Pine Barrens. It’s so dark and tree covered, I can really see how good it works.” I agreed and followed him in. I wish I hadn’t.

During the after noon, I kept hearing twigs snapping, branches creaking, and leaves rustling around us. I brought it up with him, but he insisted that it was just the wind or the effects of the earth settling, or small animals like chipmunks. I decided that since he had lived in the state his whole life, he knew what he was talking about. As we continued to go deeper into the woods, I kept getting the strange feeling that I was being watched. I said “I hope Bigfoot isn’t here.” His reaction was stopping, and then turning to look at me. I asked him what his problem was, and he replied”Bigfoot isn’t here. THIS is Jersey Devil territory.” I realized why he suggested the Pine Barrens. He wanted the Devil on film. Heat signature or otherwise. I showed him a picture in the urban legends book I took with me of what the devil looked like. I asked him “Do you really believe that a creature like that exists?” He was about to answer, but stopped when he saw something behind me. He whipped out his camera and tried to videotape what it was, but he missed it. He told me to follow him so we could corner it.

As soon as we agreed, I heard something overhead and looked up, but I didn’t see whatever it was that made the noise. My friend was really starting to freak out, and so was I. I was about to get terrified beyond comprehension. I said “Come on out, you good for nothing monster.” My friend bonked me on the head with his camera and told me not to act stupid. In hindsight, it was stupid, based on what happened next. This was a time when I wish I was deaf, blind, and unable to smell.

Champs see champ

During a basketball tournament for amateur teams, my team the Reading Roughriders had to go to New Jersey back in 2016 for a semifinal game. As we passed Lake Champlain, I thought about the monster that supposedly lived there, named Champ. I told the coach “Wouldn’t it be cool to see Champ?” He just laughed and told me that my flights of fancy were entertaining, but not important. I’m thinking it was.

As we traveled past, I thought I saw some kind of figure poke slightly out of the water. I decided that it was probably a log or hallucination. I thought I heard a teammate say “Did you see that?” a few seats in front of me, but didn’t question them. I talked to a few of my other teammates about it and they told me they had never heard of Champ and didn’t believe there was a monster in there. In other words, they thought I was lying or crazy.

During the game, I was so distracted, I couldn’t do anything correctly. All that ran through my mind was Champ. Things got so bad, I had to sit on the bench. I looked behind me and saw a young woman showing her friends pictures on a digital camera. I heard her mention Champ and asked if I could see the photos. She agreed and handed me the camera. What she caught was the same thing I had seen while cruising by the lake! I told her about my encounter, and unlike my teammates, she believed me. I decided to keep everything else I believed to myself though. Just because someone believes it doesn’t mean they agree with every aspect.

Strange Events In Allamuchy Township

This is a follow-up to my previous story where I had encountered a pale white hominid I couldn’t identify, well now I may have the answer to that.

A month or two ago in dumb horror movie teen fashion I had gotten mad at my Grandparents for something stupid, this time I thought they came too early to pick me up from work. I was furious because I still had a few hours left so I said I didn’t want a ride back. A few hours pass by and I start my several mile walk from work to home in the pitch dark on the main road. Things were good until I heard a strange demented bird-like call from the lake near the Villa. I didn’t see anything but I started to get a bad feeling until I got to the road that branches off and leads right to the Villa.

I kept walking and went over the bridge over the highway and continued further eventually walking downhill passing Shell Gas Station and the local General Store and down to the Allamuchy Elementary School. From there I turned left onto the road I’d usually walk to get home and when I did everything went unnaturally quiet and I started to get a feeling of dread. I turned back and turned left from where I just tried to walk and decided to go the more direct route. A few cars passed me by and I just kept walking, still feeling that really bad fear in my heart that caused me to change direction from my usual route.

I reached where the trees got thick making the road ahead appear blacker than ink.y instincts compelled me to stop and turn back and stay under a road light at the intersection by the School. Before I could turn back my sense of dread amplified ten fold when I saw a thin gaunt blacker than night figure dart between the trees to my right. Although brief I could see it’s hands were clawed and it’s legs were digitigrade and it’s body had some dog-like features but no fail. It bolted around from tree to tree without making a single sound or track whatsoever. I kept my calm despite what danger I was in because I finally knew what I was being stalked by.
