Ghost Hitchhiker, Moncton->-Halifax, Canada
"Last June 2009 i took a trip by car up north for exploration. I visited many towns and cities like Quebec city, Chicoutimi, Saguenay Lac Saint Jean, Riviere Du Loup, Rimouski, Gaspé, Moncton, Prince Edward Island then i came back to Moncton and i continued to Halifax, Nova Scotia. And it's from Moncton as i took of toward Halifax where i had a strange experience. About 2 hours after taking of that night from Moncton that the following incidence occured. It was pitch black outside in the middle of nowhere when i came all of a sudden across a male in his 20th hitch-hiking. The time was around 12:30am.I was not tired or anything, i actually enjoy driving at night. The car headlights were lighting the way in front of me and there was nobody there when all of a sudden i see this gentleman appear right near my car right fender. First i was surprised and got upset because i didn't see him standing, with the headlight there was nobody there. I slowed down a bit but continued driving and said to myself "how stupid is that? This guy wanna be run over or what? what is he doing there in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere?". It did not make any sense. But what struck me the most was what i felt when i looked at him. He was not leaning forward to attract the attention of passing cars but instead he was just standing straight and still sideways facing the side of the car parallele to the car and was not waving to be seen like ordinary hitchhiker do or what anybody would do to be seen, he was just there with a frozen and cold empty look on his face as if he was there but wasn't really there. His skin was very white and without exageration i would say it was as if it was lit. I stayed upset for a bit of time for his sake, because he was standing in a very dangerous area. Then i let this go and continued my way to Halifax and stopped thinking about it. It's later on that i started thinking of what i saw, when i heard stories of ghost hitchhickers being picked up by drivers without the realization of what was picked up until later when when these passangers just disappear. The common things drivers have reported is that complete silence is how the ride becomes, drivers try to strike conversations with passangers but nothing comes out of that, no response no replies as if there's nobody there".
