Robin reports a spacetime slip that involves both a snap back to a geographic location AND lost time. I’m not sure how to categorize it; how about Lost Location? (Original posting at http://www.paranormalsoup.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=26900.)
This event did not happen to me, but to a friend’s father in the early 1970s. Although my friend’s father is now very open about the subject, I won’t use his real name. I’ll call him Jim.
Jim and his buddy, “John,” went on a hunting trip to Tennessee in Jim’s pick-up truck. After an uneventful week of hunting, they decided to return to Pennsylvania. The road out of the hunting area was a long, dirt road. It intersected with a two-lane road, which would eventually lead to the main highway. When they got to the end of the dirt road, they turned right onto the two-lane paved road.
Jim noticed a strange gray fog in his rearview and side mirrors. He said that it was as though there was NOTHING behind the truck, just grayness. Ahead of them was a normal-looking day in the mountains. He didn’t say anything to John about it for quite a while. Finally, near the turn-off to the main highway, he said to John, “Do you notice anything strange?” John had noticed the greyness behind them, too. Neither could figure out what was going on, and for some reason, they didn’t stop to investigate.
Then, as they approached the intersection, they were somehow instantaneously transported back to the end of the dirt road at the hunting preserve, about two hours away. They had not driven in a circle. According to the odometer and the gas gauge, they had only traveled one way. Neither man had been drinking or taking drugs, and they are both very honest, upstanding members of their community. They are in their seventies, now, but still remember the incident very clearly.
