The Green Mountains of Vermont are an entrancing part of the Appalachians, a range that stretches from Quebec to Alabama. How much you wanna bet Mr. Rivers took a step into the Twilight Zone, er, Alternate Reality spacetime-slip???
On November 12, 1945, they were site to a baffling disappearance.
Seventy-five-year-old Middie Rivers led four hunters onto the mountains on an unseasonably mild day. As the group returned to camp near Long Trail Road and Route 9, Rivers got ahead of the others. He was never seen again.
Police and volunteers searched the area for the experienced woodsman, but never found him. The only clue was a single bullet which his friends speculated fell out of his belt when Rivers took a drink of water.
A retired teacher I may be, but collecting the extraordinary accounts of spacetime slips folks have documented keeps me busy. (Almost as busy as racing after 14 grandchildren!)
