Philip D. had an Alternate Reality TWIDDER that also appears to have bumped him back into our neck-of-the-universal-woods with little loss of time. (Original posting at http://paranormal.about.com/od/timeanddimensiontravel/a/tales_13_09_19t.htm.)
This event occurred on August 17, 2013 in Wigan, England. I was out in my local wood with my two dogs, walking the same route I had used on many occasions. Most times whilst walking this route I would bear left at the bottom of the footpath and walk through the trees up to a path running along farmers’ fields and return back that way from where I started. This area of wood is quite dense and flat.
On this day, though, as I took this route all was normal as I began my walk through the trees. Then the landscape changed. The dense trees changed to a scene of small hills which led to a ravine with about a 25-foot drop to a stream with a small well-worn bridge over it as I looked to my right.
Unable to grasp what was happening, I continued walking, looking for the path along the field which should have been there, but never came. After about 15 minutes, I was starting to get really anxious as to how I could be lost and just what was happening when I suddenly heard voices, but could see no one. I walked in the direction of the voices and was then amazed to almost walk into a man and his son, who seemed to come from nowhere.
After pausing for a minute, I then realized where I was in the wood. To my amazement, I was hundreds of yards north and to the back of where I entered. I could not comprehend how I could have got to be there. Even more strange, as I entered the wood I had glanced at my watch and it was 10:15 a.m. Shortly after bumping into the man and his son, I looked again; it was 10:17 a.m. Time had not moved whilst lost in the wood.
