    Most scared you've ever been?

    Whats the most scared you've ever been? One time me and some friends were camping pretty far in some woods no one uses, it was like 1 o'clock and we were getting ready to go to sleep when we hear footsteps going through the woods near the tent. We thought it was an animal or something untill we saw the silhouet of a person on the tent wall We nearly pissed ourselves we were so spooked. We had no fire or anything that would attract a person out that far...

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    Eastbound on Interstate something-or-other in Iowa. Going over a long bridge over some river (Cedar maybe?). Two lanes each way. I'm in the left lane, a tractor-trailer rig with a couple of those big John Deere tractors in the right. I'm running neck and neck with the semi as we crest the bridge. That's when I notice a car ahead of me in my lane. "Funny, I don't recall a car ahead of me...." Then I realize I'm looking at the wrong end of the car! On a fricking bridge! With NOWHERE to go. Lock 'em up, dump the wife, baby daughter, and dog on the floor in the process (no seat belts in use back then) and duck in behind the semi missing the back of the semi AND the front of the little old lady's Cadillac by just a few feet.

    Shoulda soiled myself, but I really didn't have time to

    Yup. The end of a way of life. Too bad. It's a good way. Wagons forward! Yo!

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    A guy robbed me in a real bad neighborhood in Long Beach California about 15 years ago. Id been drinking a little (i used to do that quite a bit), he walked up & pulled a small calliber revolver & demanded my wallet. I was a little buzzed & felt realy brave or realy stupid so I proceeded to tell him to rot in hell. He put that pistol right up to my forehead & cocked the hammer.............I knew at that moment I was a dead man if I didnt give it up! This guy wasnt messin around & wouldnt think twice about cappin a big white boy. I gave him my wallet with less than $20 in it & he ran off like a rabbit, made a bee line to his crack connection Im sure. i'll never forget that feeling I had at that moment, the look in his eyes. Scary stuff...........

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I guess the most scared I have ever been was waking up in the middle of Cancer sx because they hadn't given me enough anesthesia. I had nightmares for weeks after I came home, I kept reliving the pain and thinking I was dead. I have woken up now about 3 times during biopsys and other unpleasant test. My body for some reason needs more anesthesia than most. I had one Dr apologize and told me he couldn't give me anymore and that same amt would have knocked him on his a$$.
    But I'm still alive to talk about it and a few years have past.

    Metal Detecting

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    Detecting and having lightning hit very close.

    Gun in the face (like Mighty AP's story). Wasn't really that scared...it was a damn 15 year old kid with a stainless 9mm demanding my wallet. I kind of smiled and said "sure, no problem, but it's empty". He said "Now, *****!" I dangled the wallet open in front of him to show him it was empty. He swore and got in the car that was waiting for him. He shot a guy in the gut 20 minutes later at another gas station (he lived...250 stitches). They ended up catching the guy...he said he did it "for his momma", but he was another crack head.

    Fell asleep at the wheel and woke up in the median of I-80 heading for an abuttment when a truck started blowing his horn to wake me up...guy saved my life.

    Skiing in CO with a hangover. Was hauling ass and came upon a cat track that cut across the run. Wham! hit it and flew into the air. Was trying to slow down and I see another cat track. Wham! and fly a good 30 feet. Still trying to slow down and, I couldn't believe it, another one! Wham! this time I fly even further. Totally out of control...I can't even see what's going on anymore...it was like a motion picture in fast-forward. At this point I hit the final cat track and go airborne again. My legs are mush and I can barely see...I see a big white blur and head for it thinking it's an open area...it was...I slow down and finally stop. I probably should have just fallen down, but I hate to fall. Luckily I didn't kiss a tree. I would give anything for a video.

    There's more, but there are things I'd rather forget.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    When I was 14 camping with the boy scouts of America at Philmont scout ranch, back in 1976 We had a cool campsite near a crystal clear stream I heard it come down the mountain, then cross the stream, it stepped on one the tent roes and pulled the stake out of the ground as it passed. I moved to look out to see a 6-7 ft brown bear rip my backpack out of tree. then slice it open to get a pack of swiss miss chocolate i had been hiding ( we were supposed to hang all the food in bags between the trees for this reason) the bear heard me or smelled me and the came over and with one swipe of its razor sharp claws tore open my tent. I layed there I had my hand on a 6 inch hunting knife (no other weapons) and played dead. the bear pushed at me , then smelled me so close as to leave its slobbers on my face. i was really scared but didn't move. i think the bear knew i was alive because it came back 3 times and smelled me again and again. it seemed like it was there forever..

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I'v had alot of things Happen that when I look Back,
    I supposed I should have been Scared,
    Falling Through Ice on a Dam
    Crossing a RR Track & seeing a Train Barreling at me.
    Threatened with a Gun (Well not Threatened) Everyone who was Watching said I should Have been Scared, But I just Laughed at him.
    Seeing Someone or Something Stalking me & a Girlfriend in the woods in the Dark (This one Unnerved Us) But when I think Back,
    I guess a Little Scared. We Hopped in my Car & split :P before even uttering a word what we saw. or Thought we saw.

    The only True Fear I remember is from recurring Nightmares,
    of 3 white Beings. Usually when I initially wake up (Probably still
    half asleep) I feel real fear.
    it's strange because My lights wont work, till I'm fully awake.
    once I get a Light on the fear subsides & I start thinking "That was Cool"
    I'v had this dream in one form or another since I was a Child (late 50's Early 60's ?).
    went away in the 70's came back in the Mid 80's.
    (and NO, I Don't think Grays
    just Coincidental Nightmares)

    Altho I do remember Waking up for school one morning in the early 60's & Swearing there was something stuck way up my nose.
    or maby I just liked Sticking my finger there back then :P

    I do believe the Implant Belief is a "Birth Memory" in everyone,
    from the Moment the Doctor Shoves that Syringe in the Baby's nose
    to Open it.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I was going to say diving under the ice to retrieve a snowmobile that broke through and my life line came undone. I looked up and didn't see the hole I came through as the dude that was tending the line pulled it back up when he didn't feel me pulling on it. Soon I spotted a yellow line zoom to the bottom in a faint ray of light as someone tossed a weighed line back down the hole for me to find. I was shot once and wasn't scared as much as it hurt like hell. No, I wasn't running from the police..................

    Scary stories guys and gals. Take care....

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I've had plenty of close calls that were scary, but the most terrifying was in 1987. I'm watching the Dallas game on the TV instead of being out on Skywarn with the hams as a big storm was coming in. It was in OT, Hershel Walker took the handoff and broke down the left sideline. Then the tv went dead. I was cursing all the way to the window to look outside, peaked out and saw a telephone pole and a car go tumbling by. It took a few seconds for me to realize I was looking at a tornado from about 50 feet away, and it was coming straight at my house. I was actually mesmerized staring at this thing. I watched the debris go by, watched the roof of the building across the street tumble by, then was jolted back into reality when the debris hitting my house started making it into the living room with me. I took a sliver of glass in my right shoulder before I could dive into the bathroom and wrap myself around the toilet. I could hear impacts, breaking glass, wood cracking, the slight pressure drop, then I was feeling wind swirling in the bathroom with me. Things went quiet and it began to rain again with some small hail, in the bathroom. Tore up my house, wrecked my brand new 1988 car that I hadn't even made the first payment on. I did put it in the garage, but we never found the garage. It killed 10 and injured 160. Luckily it was a Sunday, because the tornado hit an elementary school and nothing was left but the foundation. Scared doesn't even begin to describe my feeling while hugging the toilet.

    Phillipines,1969. On perimeter foot patrol at Clark Air Base with one other guy. Someone in the jungle outside the fence opened up on us with an automatic weapon. When we saw those bullets hitting the roadway in front of us, we both dived into the ditch, with full knowledge of the possibility of a cobra living in that ditch. Returned fire, but it is unknown if we hit anyone. That had to be the scariest night of my life.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    A couple of years ago my 10 year old went up on the roof with his dad. I just happened to walk into the bathroom as my son fell through the skylight and almost right into my arms! I was able to break his fall and he ended up with only a scratch from the plexiglass. He just barely missed the edge of the tile on the shower with his head and landed with one foot in the toilet!

    Then there was the ride Thunder Mountain at Disney World. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever again will I go on that ride! I know, don't laugh.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I've been drawn on, and even shot at.... met one of my mining friends at the wrong end of an SKS, but those weren't really scary... if I had been scared, I probably wouldn't be here.

    About the scariest thing that ever happened to me, that I can recall was when i woke up in the middle of the night to find a hairy face staring at me through the window. We had a light outside, so he was backlit. The window was six feet off the floor from the inside, but there was a two foot drop to ground level outside. 8 feet to the window, with no furniture or nothing out there to stand on. That shook me up! I was about 10 at the time, but I still haven't figured it out completely.
