Big news boys and girls of Freakville, I'm going on another road trip! Oh yeah! That last one yielded up so many cool stories that I've decided to hit the trail with Jason and we're going back out into that great unknown (you may know it as "outside") This one is gonna be a doozy, cause we got official sponsorship . . .well semi official . . .ok, unofficial but what they don't know won't hurt 'em. Anyway here's the deal; as you may or may not know, Jason works as a driver for a trucking firm and they've decided to change out vehicles. Thing is, the new trucks are in Los Angeles (that's the city of angels to all you gringos) and have to be driven from there to here in central Florida. Jason in his semi-supervisor role got to pick the drivers and managed to get us a old truck to take back across the country. So basically we got Jason's company to pay for us to go across this great land of ours.
Here's where you come in:
You heard or seen anything Freaky we should check out in your neck of the woods? Lemme know, we'll be driving thru North Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, more Texas, still more Texas (it's a big ass state) New Mexico, Arizona and finally that there state they call California. Now we're suppose to go straight to LA but what kinda paranormal website owner would I be if I just went and did what everybody told me to do? So if you live around those parts and know of anything I need to see make sure and drop me an e-mail with the details. Hopefully we'll come back with some groovy stories (and not burn the truck down like I did a coupla years ago) I'll be posting road trip updates into the diary from the road so you can follow along at home (Geepers, won't that be fun?)
ONE MORE THING
Thanks to everybody who's been sending in drawings and images for the "Draw Your Own Derek" contest. It's been a rousing success. If you haven't entered yet don't fret, you still gotta a day before I pull the plug. Check out the diary entry before this one for the details.
ONE LAST THING
Oh yeah, a freakylinks reader name of Shade sent us some facts he had uncovered about those weird rune symbols in that Fearsum video I got a couple of weeks ago. Click here to check it out. Thanks Shade!
ONE MORE LAST THING
And in case you ain't noticed (gotta love those incorrect contractions huh?) there's a new story in the Freakopedia just chock full of mystery and violence. Check it out by clicking here.
THE VERY LAST THING
Another reader named SlowMike sent me this lovely image of a painting of Mike the Wonder Chicken
Now usually I ain't to thrilled with headless chickens unless they have been fried but the story behind this particular one got my attention. Seems like Mike got his head lopped off and didn't notice it for a year and a half. Read the rest of the story by clicking here.
Ok, that's it, I leave Friday for LA so get those electronic cards and letters with your paranormal tips pouring in.
