Today, we headed down to Huntsville Texas which is about an hour and 20 minute drive from the house and then, we headed over to Bowden Road aka Demon’s Road. We got a late start so it was already dark when we got there.
The place has a serious creep factor, and that was before we got out of the car. It’s another dirt road like Bragg Road, but it’s said to have more activity than Bragg. Bragg has trees that cross over the road creating a canopy in places. We didn’t go down the road that far, but the trees didn’t come that close to the road.
I don’t have any photos of our time there. We got out of the car, got our cameras out, and I took some photos while my son started taping. We had no cell service so he couldn’t live stream just like on Bragg Road.
As soon as I started taping, my phone completely died. I mean, just dead. No battery warning or anything. My son was using a flashlight as well as his phone, and the flashlight died right after my phone did. He asked me if I saw something down the road, and I couldn’t see anything it was so dark. His phone died a second later, and he said he felt himself get shoved.
He said it wasn’t hard, more of a “get a move on” type shove. He’d walked several yards in front of the car, and I had stayed by the front of the car. As I turned to walk to the driver’s side, I heard something hit the hood of the car, like a slap. My son was too far away to have touched the car.
We got both got in the car as fast as we could, and the car didn’t want to start at first. I’d turned the car off, no headlights or anything so the battery wasn’t drained – shouldn’t have been.
Needless to say, we got out of there as fast we could. When we got home, there were no pictures or video on either phone though I’m sure the pictures I’d taken had been saved.
I have no explanation for what happened. I didn’t see anything on the photos I took, and Joe says he didn’t see anything when he was taping. I can’t say for sure the place is haunted, but it was creepy. It was also a bit unnerving. I didn’t stay long enough to be scared properly, but I’m sure it was the right thing to do.
We plan to go back again, and we hope to be able to record something when we do.
Tomorrow night, we’re planning to stay at the Excelsior Hotel in Jefferson Texas.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
