We have. It happened in New Mexico(site of many strange and unexplained occurances). We pulled into a CG that was named XXXXXX RV Resort. It bordered a highway and was a large expanse of gravel with no amenities (not even a swimming pool). I thought the appelation of RV Resort was strange and unexplained.

I encounter the Strange and Unexplained everytime I go to Wally World. I really should remember to wear my tin foil hat whenever I go (that, or take a camera).

Were you camping near Rosewell?

Seriously.. There are strange things out there... Where I used to work 9-1-1 got many many calls about a UFO on special occasions (Game day at Tiger Stadium)... Of course the Police knew within one phone call what said UFO was. (they called a specific airport and ask if a specific plane was in the air.. 100% of the time it was)

If viewed from the proper angle (Say INSIDE Tiger Stadium) the "Strange lights in the sky" said something like "Eat At Joe's" or whatever the advertisers paid for, From other angles they were "Strange lights in the sky" Plane was a flying light up bill board.

Last summer we were in Alaska. It was 2 AM and I had forgotten to dump for the second straight day and I needed a shower...bad. Reluctantly, I got dressed to do battle with the dump valves and the mosquitoes. As I went through the dreaded procedure I was being eaten alive by Alaska's state birds and was becoming aware of an unearthly feeling of being surrounded by the unnatural thick light of the Alaska sky.

It had been raining for 10 straight days and I felt as if I was in a hazy fog of soft light of an unknown origin. My efforts became very laborious and my thoughts were of the life being sucked out my very existence. Slowly I finished, closing the service door and struggling to my feet as if being drawn upward into a whirlpool swirling into the semi-darkness above. I worked my way around the back of the coach, desperately grasping for the rear ladder as I felt fearful of falling off the face of the Earth. As I rounded the rear of the coach, that's when I saw it.

I thought I heard a noise coming from above and as I looked up, there was this intensely bright light coming from above. The closer it got, the brighter it became. Then suddenly, I felt my body become violently airborne and then horizontal for what seemed like an eternity. Then without warning, I felt I was slammed backward onto a very hard surface. Shortly afterward, I was surround by these figures with very large heads shouting incoherently while one of them probed me deeply in the stomach with some kind of white hot serum. Then a few of them picked me up and made me sit on this hard wet surface while forcing me to drink something that smelled of burnt flesh.

Soon the effects of the serum began to take effect and I realized that with the long Alaskan day, I had forgotten to eat something after an early supper. That mistake resulted in very low blood sugar causing unusual sluggishness. The bright light was when I ran into the rear bedroom slide cutting my head and laying me out cold...the hard surface - the ground. The aliens were our next door neighbors and my wife giving me a 'booster shot'(hypo) and the hot liquid must have been the cold orange juice. The cold wet surface was the picnic table and the burnt smell was from the ribs I'd cooked earlier and had forgotten to clean the grill.

So, for me at least, strange things do happen while camping...do, doo, do do...do, doo, do, do...Sorry for the long, slightly embellished trip...now it all makes sense. Bob

Very good. You should write a novel. It had my interest.

Marfa Lights

Can only speak of my personal experience. Son and I went there 10 years ago while he was still in high school. The viewing area is a few miles out of town. I hear it has now been improved. We got there a little after dark and sat and looked and soon we could see the lights, some seeming stationary and some moving. Looked far away, definately did not look like car lights on some distant road. Am told that the lights are not there every night, considering the distances involved, guessing you would need a clear night like we had. We stayed a couple of hours and could see the lights nearly all of that time. Camped in a small camp ground on other side of Marfa. Since it is so far from anything (as you could say about any of the sights out in West Texas), I would contact Marfa chamber of commerce to get more up to date news. Happy Trails.

They don't come here anymore. They've seen our stupid singing TV commercials and want nothing to do with us.
