“It was a Thursday morning a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to get an early start so I could loop up over Russell Field to Spence and then back down. Unfortunately, I didn't get as early a start as I wanted so that didn't happen.
As I veered right off of the Anthony Creek trail up the Russell Field trail, I heard someone coming down the trail ahead of me. Turns out it was a really cute young lady. We spoke briefly before moving on. With thoughts of this girl in my head, I wasn't paying as good attention to things as I should have.
Day dreaming along as I passed campsite 10 in a light mist, I head a loud huffing noise off in the rhododendron to the left. My heart beat fast as I tried to make out what it was. As I cautiously moved back, with a flash and a large crash, a huge bear came tearing through the green curtain of leaves before me. Forgeting all my knowledge I turn and fled like a kitten running from a rapid wolf. Screaming like a little girl, my foot caught a root in the trail and down I went, face first into a pile of horse poop. Covered in horse crap, I sobbed deeply and knew my pesimistic attitude was to blame for all this misfortune. My new $1,000 waterproof, lightweight, heavy duty, all terrain hiking clothes were ruined.
But wait, I remembered I bought the suit with the optional poop remover. It was just $5 more even though I thought I would never need it. Boy as I glad I did. Pressing the button on the sleeve, the poop was cleaned up instantly. Well, except for my boots. My $10 k-mart tennis shoes didn't have any built in features. Remembering the reason I fell in the first place, I looked behind me just as the 1,000 lb bear lunged at me....”
“I thought it said 'Beer in Goblets'...”
“Somebody got into some bad peyote?”
“and I thought stikmon was posting some weird #&%!$”
“The strangest thing happened at that moment... The bear, landing on all fours, straddling me, looked down, deep into my eyes, and said "I think you dropped this" handing me my water bottle. I thanked him and nervously stood to my feet, still smelling like horse poop. As the bear walked off he said "only you can prevent forest fires."
Thinking my adventure was over, I started up the trail again. My heart still racing nervously from my encounter. Then I heard a voice from behind. "You should be more careful." I turned around and saw no one. Damn, I must be going crazy, I thought to myself. Just then I saw it...or rather them. Moving quickly among the giant trees, goblins, hundreds of them. "You need to come with us" one of them stated. As it completed it's sentence, I suddenly became entangled in vines and couldn't move. Then the goblins revealed themselves to me completely. They picked me up and carried me towards a cave. I don't remember anything from that point until....”
“Where'd you get those mushroomS!”
“So Ice Tea, how far did you get on your essays?”
“Nope Lyndys, can't be Tea, not unless he got a spell checker.”
“Sounds a lot like Ice Tea's style of writing to me. Check out his trip report about his hike to Dunkin Donuts.”
“Then the next thing I knew, I was back on the trail spread out on my back like a pooped eagle. Soon it got dark, very dark, so I climbed into the tent. About ten minutes later I heard sounds around the tent so began to make noises hoping to scare off the late night visitor. Then I peeked out the tent and (gasp!) there was biz and AmyG, all naked and romping through the grass twisting and jumping, this way and that and my head started to spin so I stuck my head in the sleeping bag and started saying Bible verses as fast as I could ... then I awoke the next morning and looked outside and there on the ground I saw ............”
“The guys who were coming to take you away, ... away, they were coming to take you away.”
Woeisme's encounter with forest nymph
I resemble the comment that says...
“"I though Stikmon was writing some weird #$%@@!."
To think that I would write a dream encounter is rediculous. I never write meaningless drivel that has no basis in reality. Chili, you should be ashamed of yourself...now go spank yourself till you smile.”
“After speaking with many other and careful analysis of the climate of the attitudes within the world, I have determined that there are tremendous Dark Forces at work now. I believe that the Dark Lord walks among us and is wreaking havoc in his wake.
We, the lovers of all things natural, must ever be on our guard for attacks upon our persons. the enemy will try to attack each of us in time, attempting to destroy our powers and strengths.
I am writing this as a warning to each of you, so that you will bone up on your magical spells and incntations. It is up to each of to remain as vigiliant as we can.
We were invaded, recently by a doppleganger of Professor Dumbledor, but through the efforts of Raven and myself, we were able to expose and eventually overcome him. The identity of this imposter has not yet become available to us, but the Ministry of Magical Imposters is heading up an ivestigation.
With recent events involving Mr Harry Potter, we should all be aware that the storm is coming, and be prepared. Watch yourselves and ally yourselves with good people...stray not into the woods alone, it is not safe to be alone, if you must do so, take a trusty trail companion with you, they will alert you to danger and hazards.
And last of all, if you need aid, contact me immediately, I am working long distance protection charms, carried on the wings of music and the wind.
May the force be with each of us, stay strong."
The prosecution rests.....”
“LOL, chili. ;-)
Actually, I was thinking maybe Gentle Ben had returned. Then again, his tale with Wanda had a bit more reality... and a lot more "wild weed." lol”
“So what kind of drugs were you on when this happned?????
