Date From Hell #2--2006

(Note: I originally posted this around 8 am on May 6th. But feared that Northern Guy might read it I took it down. I did hear from him that day.....but dinner plans for today fell thru again.)
I don't know why I even try.......

Got an IM from "Mountain Man" who I have been talking to for a short time and he wanted to know if I would like to meet him for dinner up at Vallecito Lake....
(click the picture to go to their website) does work...sorry

So, I'm thinking cool....it's 7:40 pm.....I tell him I have to get ready...he says no need it's very casual....so I go comb my hair, talk to the teen he agrees to be the "warden" for the moment and I jump in the car. Have to gas up....(it's like 70 miles away)

Just so you know...I hate driving at night. Especially in the mountains...which was where I was going. I hate it because.....these



and smaller versions are on the highway.....And I don't care what you people say....WEREWOLVES are real. They are out there waiting to get you...especially on a Friday night on the highway to Durango.

And if they aren't werewolves....then they are "skin walkers" which I think is even worse!!!

Things are going okay on the drive..only see a few deer but not near the highway..thank goodness. Anyway I get to "Farmington Hill" which is this horrible hill that has about 4 blind "S" turns and the outside lane (the one for me to come home on) has spots with no guard rails. Scary Scary Scary.......one of my friends died on that hill which makes it even scarier. AND IT'S NIGHT TIME!!! and THERE ARE WEREWOLVES!!!! I make it down the hill fine and turn right at the bottom and head towards Bayfield, CO. The turn off to the lake is very close to Bayfield.

This highway is always busy and has lots of elk and deer so I am actually going the speed limit....I THOUGHT.....

Yes, lights flashing in the review mirror. I pull over and he walks up shining the dang flashlight in my side mirror just about blinding me then shines the damn thing right in my eyes. Now I know they have to look at me....but geesh.... He tells me he clocked me going 53 in a 50 and I need to slow down. Well to be honest I was looking for deer and didn't have the cruise control set so .....who the hell knows..... He keeps shining the damn light in my eyes and asks me if I've been drinking. I said "no". He said that my eyes were "glassy" I told him that my eyes are sensitive to light and that they are actually watering right now. Doesn't phase him. I discover that I had not put my new insurance card in the car but I had the two older ones so he didn't write me a ticket for that....whew......

Okay..back on the road...25 minutes later.....it's 9:15pm and I am supposed to meet "mountain Man" at 930pm and I am not even close!!!!! So I obey the speed limit...set the cruise control and get passed by angry drivers...oh well. Finally get to the lake turn off.....YEAH!!!!

Driving down the road and there is this road thing...it's a circle with 3 exits...one for the way I was going, one to turn right and then you have to keep going to the next one to continue on the road I was on which is what I wanted to do. I got off too soon and took me a bit to get turned around on the other road and get back to the stupid circle thing and go one spot further and get back on the correct road.....what the heck is that thing doing there??? That road isn't that busy....I think it's like a sobriety test or something....I flunked and I hadn't even been drinking.!!!!!

Okay...single lane mountain road/highway. In a forest type setting speed limit 40 mph most of the way....DEER EVERYWHERE. I think I must of stopped 12 times as they lolli-gaged across the road. Look at the watch...it's 9:54 pm....crap..... A car passes me...so I decide to follow him and go a little faster....

Thoughts of Northern Guy are racing thru my head...great I am going on a date and I am thinking of someone else. But I did pass the turn off to his house on the way up. I called his cell, no answer and I hung up before I got to voice mail. How can I be so pathetic??? and inconsiderate of this other guy??? I am worse than a werewolf.....

Something brown with 4 legs runs between me and him..... I almost hit it. I stop..Swerve and come to a stop. Heart racing....have to take a moment to stop my head from spinning. Screw going fast.....I will drive slow. My cell phone doesn't have a signal by now ...too many mountains so I can't call the restaurant...

Now, I've been to Vallecito Lake in the daytime...but never at night. I get lost in a one stop light town.....so you can imagine what is going on here. He told me to stay on pavement and I will have no problem.

10:25 pm I see all these cars parked on the road lots of lights on, so I'm thinking this must be some type of business and I can use the pay phone.....I pull over...get out.....get close to the other cars...something growls at me......WEREWOLVES!!!!!

Being the lost coward that I am I run back to my car, lock the doors and get the heck out of there. In my uncontrollable fear and unsupervised driving I realize I am now on a dirt road....CRAP!!!!!! I have to up a bit to get to a point where I can turn around....Finally get back down to the highway and get ready to turn left and another big damn deer....looking right at me. Those glossy beady brainless eyes just staring at me. CREEPY CREEPY CREEPY.....

He finally goes away so I can get by...10:45 pm. I go down the road a bit and I see no lights anywhere. Keep driving and keep driving and nothing just scary dark wooded area....11:00 pm....I still see nothing so I turn around and head back.

I suck at dating...... Thoughts of the two little boys won't leave my head. And how horrible I felt just blazing a trail and not spending time with them. Eyes tearing up but that helps to not see the creepy things on the side of the road. I get back to the main highway and start heading home.

Damn flashing lights in the review mirror again. I was only going 40 mph and it's a 50 mph zone.. Same damn "trooper". His reason was because I was going so slow and now my eyes are pink and very watery. He asks me if I have been drinking...I say "no" and then he asks why my eyes are so pink and watery...have I been doing drugs??? "No", I say...."I'm crying." He just looks at me and finally lets me go.

Then had to go back up the scary hill.......I hate going up that thing. No guard rails, no shoulder just black-top and a 3 mile drop...eewww.

Made it home okay. AJ just laughed at me when I told him what happened. Alec was sleeping in my bed. I crawled in to get close to him and he had a fever....more guilt....

Second Date from Hell this year....and I never even got to hook up with him....

*SIGH*

P.S. I IM'd "mountain man" and apologized....doubt I will hear from him again....

I can't believe a trooper pulled you over for 53 in a 50! Well, I actually CAN believe it, LOL. What a jerk. Then the same one pulls you over again? Man.

Ok. Your luck just sucks. Man. The same cop? Whatever. People need to back off and find something to do.

I hope you DO hear from him, if not, he's an ass.

I am totally freaked out by deer! They scare the crap out of me. I hate Farmington Hill too. Same reason. I remember how horrible it was!

Why in the crap didn't he meet you in Durango instead of making you drive all the way to BFE Vallecito????? There probably WERE werewolves clear out there!! LOL

Or....maybe Mountain Man is really a scary guy, or a werewolf himself and this was God's way of protecting you from what could have happened. I don't know....just a thought! Meeting a strange man that far out of city limits sounds like a risky venture to me!
