History of me. I was raised on a 200 acre farm in VA and have always been sensitive to my surroundings. I do not 100% believe in the paranormal aspect to cyrpids but I do believe in spirits. The farm house was built in 1775 and it was always active, beautiful at day, and creepy, almost unwelcoming at night. I cannot go outside at night on my 13 acres in ga nor my family farm when I visit in VA. I have always been outside exploring, but can only achieve this during the day time. Taught rock climbing at the age of 14 in va, for 7 years, completed an 8 day outward bound course in nc when I was 14 and I get out as much as possible. I am 35 years young and I am like a squirrel that will randomly pull over on road trips to explore new sights, rock structures, cemeteries, historic sites, etc on the way to and from a destination . I am constantly camping, swimming, hiking, kayaking, fishing, exploring. I am not afraid to go outside, but always cautious and usually armed.
On Sunday, Dec 16, 2018, after 1030pm, I was traveling down the road, bringing yet another car load from our old house to the new one. The day was in the 50s and a Gibbous moon, which was 60% illumination, no rain from what I can remember. I was driving about 50mph, no other cars on the road nor were there any street lights. In my peripheral to my left, I saw a 10-15 foot long, dark brown to black large object flying over the field and flying VERY fast. I did not see wings, but what I saw did not have feet, it had to be flying as it was at least 10-20 feet off the ground. By the time I looked over, it was gone, I even swerved due to turning around several times and slowing down. I have driven this road for years now, multiple times a week and I still look when I drive by. I do not know what this was, but I have spoken with the owner of Expedition: Bigfoot a few times and he mentioned to me that last year that there were 4 reports of pterodactyl like creatures being seen in my immediate area. I spoke to him in Oct 2018 and this was prior to my sighting and I spoke to him again last month as he happened to be at a local park I was fishing at. I have more information, but I don't know how to express what I saw because I have never seen anything like this before and I feel I did not see enough to complete the picture.
Later that night, the coyotes screamed for almost 30 minutes straight, and in the past and to this day, I have only heard them call for 5 minutes max. We have owned this property, 13 acres with a creek, for over 2 years, camped MANY times on it and just finished our home build Dec 2018. Since we moved, 80% of the time when I am outside at night, I feel like I am being watched and at close distance. There has only been one time where the creatures stopped singing at night and needless to say, I was inside within a few seconds. I am not afraid of what is out there, I am afraid of not being able to see what I feel like is almost stalking me.
I do not know what I saw and I know it was not tilled dirt, leaf debris, etc. I have tested this theory and like mentioned, I drive by this area multiple times a week in different weather conditions....rain, moon shine and sun. I look EVERY TIME I drive by and I cannot recreate what I saw, nothing comes close.
It has taken me time, rewriting and thinking to put this into perspective and still nothing is coming out of it. I dont think it was a dinosaur and not a mothman, but I am not sure and I have not heard any emcounters like this. I have completed some research and unless I see it again, for a longer period, I feel like I will never have an answer.
I have 2 camping stories/experiences on the property. One time we were camping at 3 forks trail in north ga, which included something sniffing, very slowly.. not fast sniffing, at my hammock very early in the am. I was the closest to the creek which flows beside the trail. No one else was bothered or woken by it. No alcohol or drugs were involved by anyone with any of these. Could be a bear, but not sure. This was about 4 years ago. There were no tracks and our food was left out (dumb, I know.. the guys were in charge of that) and not bothered. The other is from 2 years ago on a midnight hike involving tree knocks in south TN while we were at a Bigfoot festival last year, my gf was present for that as well and had 6 other witnesses. The tree knocks could be a BFRO person making sure we heard something, I am not positive either way.
Believe it or not, I am a "hopeful skeptic", but one who wants to see something some day, but not see something at the same time. I really don't want to see something I cannot unsee. I do not want to be traumatized and scarred from fear. I dont have to see a body, just more evidence. There is a lot of evidence and i have felt and seen things as well, but im still not 100% sold, if that makes sense?
I have only talked to 3 people total about this and I have no idea what I saw. Any thoughts or insight?
