Cases of Time Slips

A white Ford pickup pulled up to cattle pasture near Ponca City, Oklahoma, in early Fall 1971, and stopped at a gate. Karl, Mark, and Gordon worked for cattle feed distributor and were sent to this remote area to pick up a feeder. What they found there has kept them silent for 41 years.

“We opened the gate, which was barbed wire with no lock, and entered,” Karl said. “We went on the property, which was covered with grass up to and over the hood of the truck.”

They drove through the tall grass to the tank that sat close to a red barn and got out of the truck.

“We realized the tank was almost half full and too heavy to load,” Karl said. “We decided to leave and drove around the red barn and we saw a large, two story white house, with no lights in front of us.”

The trio drove back to the cattle feed company and the boss said he’d drain the tank and they could pick it up tomorrow.

“We went to the location to retrieve the tank the next night,” Karl said. “This time we decided to go through the old white big house on the hill and brought our shotguns.”

They drove onto the property over the path they’d made through the grass the day before and loaded the tank. Then they pulled around the barn toward the house. What they saw burned into their memories.

“It was no longer there,” Karl said. “We walked up the hill where it stood and there were no signs of demolition, no foundation, nothing at all. What we all seemed to witness the night before was no longer there. We have talked to each other over the years but none of us can begin to explain this vision.”

Did these men witness a slip in time?

Time slips have been reported throughout history. English women vacationing in France in 1901 claimed they stepped into the French Revolution, and two English couples traveling in Spain in the 1970s stayed at an oddly archaic hotel that was simply gone on their return journey.

Physicists like Albert Einstein, Michio Kaku and Stephen Hawking have all said time travel is theoretically possible; our science just can’t achieve it. But what if nature can?

The light in the sky shown white, far from the greens and reds Jake saw during the Aurora Borealis of 2004, visible in North America as far south as the lower Midwest. Jake, 15, stood outside his parents home in the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, around 10 p.m. 28 May, leaning against a truck and looking at the lights. He didn’t know his life was about to change.

“A bright white glow suddenly filled the northern horizon,” he said. “This looked nothing like the northern lights, nor did it behave like them.”

The light moved like the light of a copy machine. The single bar of brightness moved from west to east over Jake’s head and disappeared.

“I thought that I should maybe go inside at this time, and found myself unable to move,” he said. Numbness grew in his arms and legs and he blacked out. When he woke, he knew he’d been somewhere else.

“I felt woozy and almost sedated,” he said. “Time seemed muddled in my head.”

He walked into the house to find he’d been outside an hour. “It took most of the night for me to tell my parents what happened, and most of the time I kept telling them that I thought the calendar was wrong, it should at least be after 2008,” he said. “To this day, my mother remembers bits of this, mainly because I looked at her and asked point blank, ‘Is the black man president?’”

What happened to Jake? Seizure? Psychological phenomena? Or did Jake accidentally take a brief, four-year step into 2008?

Jake’s slip is just one in a long line of stories from people who have brushed against a different time, such as RAF pilot Sir Victor Goddard who encountered airplanes in 1935 that didn’t exist until 1939, and a 100-year-old Swiss watch found in a Chinese Ming dynasty tomb. People may slip like this all the time.

Kell opened the door of his 1999 Chevrolet S-10 next to a convenience store gas pump in Springfield, Missouri, when a large man accosted him.

“As I left the gas station, some large melon-headed man dressed in a business suit yelled, ‘What year is it?’” Kell said.

The man stood at a spot Kell would have walked by when he left the store, but he hadn’t seen him. The man wore a dark black suit “with a rough fiber texture,” Kell said. “Along the lines of the things Teddy Roosevelt could wear.”

“What year is it?” the man yelled again.

The man was white, about 35 to 40 years old, clean-shaven, normal, but he’d asked an odd question. Kell answered it.

“Two-thousand three,” Kell told him.

The man’s face contorted in anger.

“What year is it?” he screamed at Kell.

“Again I said ‘2003.’”

The large man screamed the question one more time.

“I said ‘2003’ so he could hear me,” Kell said. “Then he quit asking.”

Kell glanced away from the man as he slid into his truck, but safely inside, Kell turned to get another look at him. The man was gone.

“He disappeared from the front of the gas station,” Kell said. In the seconds it took Kell to slip into his truck, the man simply vanished. Kell looked, but the man hadn’t stepped inside the store – the only place he could have gone in that short amount of time. He was just gone.

“These stories are not so rare as people think,” Kell said. “But the stories are so bizarre that I don’t think anyone would want to come foreword to tell it. Who would believe you?”

    Time slips are my favorite!

    I found a bunch of stories here, including a video:

    found a book about it called’Time Travel: A How-To Insiders Guide’
    that’s supposed to have some stories in it, i haven’t purchased it yet,

    Hope it helps.

  • The following letter by J Truman of Calcarra, Western Australia appeared in the Western Mail on 1 August 1946. The author relates a bizarre experience in which he is apparently transported through space and time after pulling on a pair of second hand khaki army trousers.

    “Having served in many parts of the Empire and have seen many strange happenings, beyond my limited comprehension, I have always been partial to khaki, having worn it for more years than I sometimes care to remember. So there was nothing strange in my going into an Army surplus store and purchasing, amongst other goods, a pair of second hand khaki trousers.

    “The first time I put them on was a Saturday night, and a feeling came over me which would be hard to describe. I had a restless night and on Sunday morning I put the same trousers on again, picked up my haversack and rifle. As I was walking across the paddocks, the heavy fog seemed to become more intense. Suddenly I found myself in a jungle. In front of me was a young Australian soldier, advancing along the trail, tommy-gun at the ready.

    “Then I spotted a Jap sniper in the tallest tree on the right side of the trail taking aim, I yelled a warning to the Aussie but too late he lay dead on the trail.

    “My yell frightened sheep and lambs in all directions and I felt a great fool yet it was just as though I had been there with him. I examined the trousers carefully when I arrived back at the homestead, and found what appeared to be blood stains on them. I suppose there is an explanation somewhere but the experience has got me beat.”
    J. TRUMAN (Calcarra)

  • Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut. Not so much exactly as described above but time slips are central to the story.

    I experience phenomenons like this often… I now know I am not alone

  • I’m from a small town near Springfield so I thoroughly enjoyed this. What I want to know is if somebaody knows in what circumstances do these events most likely occur?

  • I experienced what I believe was a time slip in 1962 when I was 12. My Mother sent me out into our green and grassy backyard in Maryland to pick up the sticks and twigs that had fallen from our very large poplar tree. I had picked up an arm load of sticks and bent down to pick up another one but when I stood back up I was in another place. It looked rather barren and dry and I could see hills or maybe mesa’s in the distance. I had a sense that “my people” were there and it was my job to collect firewood which is why I was out alone. The wood also seemed more like driftwood and very dry. I never looked behind me so I don’t know if I could have been near water or any wooded areas. I could see my hair blowing in the breeze and it was very long and wild. I looked down and I was wearing fur that went over one shoulder and went down to my thighs. I was barefoot. I knew I was the same person but I was somehow in a different place and time. It only lasted a few seconds and then I was back in my backyard in Maryland. I have thought about this for the last 50 years and I believe that I was doing exactly the same thing at exactly the same time that I was doing in a parallel universe or dimension and that somehow triggered the switch. I often wondered what the me from the other place thought when they appeared as me in my backyard in 1962. Did they have any understanding of what happened given the limited experiences in their life at that time? I had at least read about early man in school and knew what other places looked like but they didn’t have any of that knowledge and certainly wouldn’t have known what clothes or shoes were. I didn’t really have any firm explanation of the event until a couple of years ago when I read about time slips and I now believe that’s what happened to me.

  • Vincent Angelo

    Damn Jim, don’t you know your own recent history? The election was Nov. 8, 2008. That is 2008!

  • lonelotus

    You didn’t read it properly. It says at least after 2008, which would include 2009. It may sound far-fetched to you but when something like this happens to you, you can’t help but wonder what else is possible. I’ve had a time slip experience and am grateful for it. It’s enough proof for me to believe that reality is not what they say.

  • Jim

    Fascinating story — thank you for sharing it. Have you ever thought that perhaps you were experiencing a kind of deja vu from a previous incarnation? Picking up wood for kindling or other purposes is a universal experience, and doing so might have triggered a spiritual memory for you, just for those few seconds.

  • Jim

    Oddly enough, in the time since I initially replied (a bit smugly) to this story, I have had an experience which makes me wonder about these things — there is something about the fabric of time which is not uniformly woven.

  • JillV

    what I don’t understand about this is how he knew anything about the who the President was at the time of his slip. what did he go inside and watch tv or something and see a glimpse of the future? or did he some how get stuck in the past? wouldn’t someone notice he was older than he was supposed to be?

  • Laura Turner

    I think that sounds more like dimensional jumps. As you said, it could be a parallel universe where things are not advanced. This story is fascinating and quite spectacular in how odd and unusual it is.

    Do you have this book? I’ve been trying to find an eBook version or PDF of it, but no luck. 🙁

  • Steve McGill

    I experienced a very strange occurrence back in 1997 that I have come to think was a time slip. I was dating a girl at the time a she and I were at my mum’s house, I can’t remember what we were doing there but after a while my girlfriend said she would go back up home in her own car (about 8 miles North from my mum’s house) and I could follow her back when I was done at my mum’s. I was going to stay and chat with my mum for a while, but I was tired and decided not to, so said goodbye to my mum and got into my own car. Now, it was NO MORE than 30 seconds to a 1 minute gap between my girlfriend leaving and me leaving so I expected to catch up to her on the motorway very quickly (there was only one way back home). However, as I travelled, I could not see her car, for some childish reason (I was only 21 at the time) I gained speed to close the gap and soon found myself doing nearly 90 mph in a bid to catch her. Mile after mile my speed rose to over 110mph but there was still no sign of her. I began to think she had taken a longer detour or even popped into a shop of something so let off the gas a bit back to nearer 80mph as I knew she couldn’t possibly still be in front of me as she was quite a moderate driver and never broke the speed limit,
    How wrong I was,.. to my absolute shock and amazement, when I pulled up at her house (not for one minute expecting her to be there) her car was there! Not only that, but she had had time to call into the local Fish and Chip shop for tea and was busy plating it up for us for our evening meal! I have since worked out that she would have had to have travelled at over 200 mph to get back in time for her to have done what she did…. never did work that one out!

    I have had an experience that possibly fits in here.

    In the late 90’s I used to help a friend of mine set up and tear down the sound & light rig he owned, one that he hired out for parties. It was sometimes tough work with just the two of us, but he was a fun chap, he paid well and we usually ended up joining in with the fun.

    This particular weekend his gear had been hired for a birthday party in a families converted barn out in the Sussex countryside. It was Autumn and we were supposed to have arrived at 5pm, giving us two hours to set up before the guests began to arrive.

    Once we were way out in farming territory the directions he’d been given were somewhat lacking, and the search for the relevant country lane grew more confused. Around 6pm, we eventually took a few almost random turns, looping back through an area of fields hoping for a break.

    At this point we turned into a long narrow stretch of country road heading towards a distant left turn, low stone walls kept sheep from wandering into the lane. The lane was wider than our van, but of the type where vehicles are forced to pull up against the walls in order to allow each other past. Off to the West, the sun was low and beginning to set, dusk had fallen.

    My friend was driving, I was peering ahead navigating- and I saw the speck of a car turn into our lane in the distance. At the same time a strange feeling fell over our vehicle, a stillness. The long shadows of the trees over the fields seemed to freeze, the red lights of the setting sun seemed deathly still, almost photographic. I focused on the car as it came into distant focus, and seeing more detail I nudged my friend to pay attention- it was a very, very old car, resembling a Model T. It was also driving very quickly.

    As it drew nearer it became apparent the car was going recklessly fast, my friend pulled to one side to allow it access. Once it was within a shorter distance a few facts struck me all at once- this car was immaculate, it looked absolutely brand factory new. It had no plates. And the driver was dressed in authentic vintage clothing. He wore a cloth cap and tweeds, and had a very thin, pale face. He was hunched over the wheel in an intense fashion, his eyes wide.

    As he passed us he was very close, and he swung his head to look at us in that instant. His face was drawn and there was a desperate look to him, his mouth was mouthing something as he flew by – I felt he was frightened by us – or by something- and he was trying to communicate. It was this action that made both my friend and I react simultaneously with shock- for there was no sound, his car was utterly silent, even rushing past within a metre, his moving mouth was equally silent. The whole experience took on an uncanny frozen feeling- then he was suddenly gone. In that moment there was no sound, the light of dusk seemed flat and unnatural. It was very eerie. Then he was past us, for some reason neither of us turned to watch his path behind. We both sat looking ahead.

    My friend moved the van forward, neither of us spoke for a moment… we were in a kind of shock- then the moment seemed to ‘break’ and I felt reality assert itself as normal, we both became aware again of the car music playing, etc.

    At this point we both snapped back to ourselves, my friend slammed the van to a halt, and we both excitedly discussed the experience- both of us had seen all of this exactly the same way.

    The fact is, nobody drives a 90yr old mint-condition antique at breakneck speed down narrow country lanes, at dusk, with no lights on. And the whole experience felt uncanny- the feeling of being inside a sort of ‘bubble’ of distorted time, light and sound.

    I’ve wondered since if this person/vision was aware of us… I picture a young man driving his car along there in the 1920’s, who finds himself trapped inside a strange endless lane, the light changing, all sound vanishing… he becomes frightened by this, and speeding along looking for escape finds himself confronted by a bizarre futuristic vehicle and its strangely clad occupants.

    I hope it ended for him, as it did for us, and he reached his destination and told a similar story to his friends.

    I can however imagine a more horrible version of events- where he is trapped, hurtling through a Moebius loop of country lane for 90 years, always at dusk, always in that flat dead light, trapped at the wheel, yelling silently for help at the increasingly strange vehicles that flicker in and out of his reality.

    I’ve wondered if many of the missing people that disappear each year are in ‘loops’ somewhere, just beyond our perception…. and it is glimpses of these that we mistake for ghosts.

  • Ryan Wijayanayakw

    I also had an experience, though not sure how to classify it.

    It only happened last week.

    I was at a convention for NI Days (National Instruments) in Boston, a company for those who don’t know that make testing equipment and the makers of LabView. The convention had many other companies, and i myself was part of a highschool robotics team. My Robots mentor made us stay at the booth we were at to answer people’s questions. At one point, I was sitting alone at the booth and playing with some wire connectors. I look up and there are my friends, bobby and Nathaniel. This is where it happens.

    All of a sudden I sat stunned at myself for around 15 seconds.

    I remembered seeing that exact same image earlier in life, I just couldn’t pinpoint when. Myself playing with the wire connectors, then looking up seeing my friends. I honestly don’t know what happened.

    If anyone has explanations, Please Reply!

  • Dalton Chambers

    Your mind had confused your short term memory with your long term memories and manipulated you into thinking it was a long term memory often the cause of dejavu .. In other words the new memory you were creating was sent to the wrong part of the brain making you think it had happened before …im no expert hecki didnt even finish the 9th grade thats just my own opinion lol

  • James Incognito

    If anybody has dreams of insignificant events yet to have occurred then occurring please tell me. I want to understand this experience.

  • Liz

    I think that story read, “at least 2008” implying it could have been a later year. All of these stories are interesting, but tend to have greater merit if the reader is predisposed to considering alternate, non linear realities, or if one actually knows the individual who had the experience. My mother had experiences that don’t fit western science, and I know she was sane and steeped in believing western science view of reality, so to me her experiences, running counter to her culture’s take on reality, are extremely interesting/ puzzling, but since you don’t know her or me, why would you be convinced at the same level that I am?

  • divadog

    I experienced a time slip last fall. My husband and I had parked outside a CVS and were crossing the road to go there. As we stepped onto the road, there was a bicyclist who was in front of us just outside the building. He passed by, left to right, about 10 feet away, no biggie, but by the time we reached the walkway, the same bicyclist was to our left, and he slowed down to let us pass. I gestured to him to go ahead, and he did. There were no other people around. So in essence, there was a few-seconds jump back in time and the bicyclist crossed in front of us twice. I even blurted out to my husband after the guy passed that, “God, what the hell was that time lapse about, don’t freak me out like that!” He answered, “Yeah, I know.” And that was that.

    in the summer of 2012, a simple trip to Home Depot changed the way I look at reality forever! I’ve been thinking about the details of that event ever since.

    A friend of mine and I decided to put up a tile backsplash in my kitchen one weekend. Saturday morning about 9am I went to Home Depot, 20 min away, to pick up a tile cutter for the job.

    When I got back my friend was super angry because he said I had been gone for 8 hours or more. I said that’s impossible and that I had been gone maybe an hour. I explained, because I was able to pick up the tile cutter almost immediately, hopped in my car and left. Standing there in the kitchen, I looked at my watch which was stopped at 9:43am, the clock on the microwave said 5:17. I then looked at and showed him the store receipt to prove when I checked out it said 9:40am. For the life of me I can’t account for the missing 7 or so hours.

    I was standing outside a gas station in maplewood missouri 1987 , waiting for a friend when all of sudden everything got quiet no traffic noise nothing i could see everything around me had changed the powerlines the gas station. Then everything scrambled sound came back everything was back to normal i stood in same spot 10 yrs later and saw in real time what i had seen ten yrs before

  • brandon thompson

    I was driving up to Yuba Sutter county one day. There in the middle of “country”nowhere is one of those 4 way stop lights that makes you wonder why the heck they put it there. Lol. Anyway, after the stop as I was heading “northbound” my attention focused on a Ford Galaxy that had stopped in the opposite direction. Both of us slowly accelerated from the stop as I looked at the car I recognized one, my uncle in the passenger seat, my aunt with her flaming red hair and lastly though I didn’t get o see very long,….me in the back seat of this Galaxy. I pulled over on the otherside of the intersection got out and looked at the car dissapearing into the distance. Not like poof but normal like. I just saw myself, aunt & uncle 30 years ago. I had a mind to go after it but something told me not to. A gut feeling. Seeing that was a “treat” in itself. I was blown away and still am. Looking back at that one experience one l thing that was not normal was the interior of the car was “dark”. Hard to explain. I’ve had many strange experiences in my life but that one was not tethered in a dream but in the real world.
    Thank for the read.

  • Bonnie Lee

    He thought it was 2008 but somehow he was given knowledge that a black man would be president yet was unsure of the exact date so his question makes sense to me! He knew it was going to happen, just not when.

  • Bonnie Lee

    True and if a person has a time slip and they go into the past or future, they don’t necessarily know who is who for presidents unless they have that info given to them through intuition but someone might go into the future and have no clue what’s up!

  • John Feury

    Yes, indeed. Time slips are a genuine phenomena of which science at present knows very little,they are not to be confused( as some folks think ) with time warps which is science fiction.

  • Caty C.P. :)

    Hello, I am new to this site so please let me know if this is too off-topic 🙂
    I am wondering if anyone here has experienced something that feels similar to a time-slip, but something I would call ‘frozen time’?
    I was in a very strange situation while driving on a highway in 2009. It was Route 128 outside of Boston, which anyone from that area will know is a dangerous, very high-speed freeway (when there’s not traffic backing it up for miles, that is). I was driving to work on a morning when there were lots of cars on the road, but no accidents backing things up; there were four lanes at the time, and all were running at about 70 mph. I was in the far left lane, when a car in the far right lane suddenly made a 180-degree turn, drove across all lanes of traffic (somehow not hitting anyone!), and came to a stop facing the wrong direction, about 5 feet from my front bumper. It was a sunny day, dry roads, no ice, so I don’t know what caused this.
    The near-collision was weird enough, but then things got stranger; the other car was blocking only my lane, not the other 3 lanes, so they should have started driving forward immediately after this happened (especially on this particular road, where accidents are common enough and drivers can be pretty cutthroat!). The other car didn’t hit mine, so this also wasn’t a ‘looky-loo’ or ‘rubber-neck’ situation. But none of the cars in the other lanes moved forward. I looked at the nearest drivers in the other lanes, and it was as if they were literally frozen. No movement, their cars and faces in a weird frozen position. I then looked at the driver who had spun out and almost hit me; she was not in a frozen position, but I noticed that she too was looking at the other cars and seemed really freaked out (whether from her car spinning out or seeing the ‘frozen’ drivers, of course, I’ll never know).
    We looked at each other for what felt like an eternity, but it wasn’t just that ‘time-slowing-down’ effect that happens when you’re in an adrenaline-producing situation. We blinked at each other several times. I would estimate that the actual amount of time that we looked at each other was 1 minute. Still *no* motion from the other drivers or their cars.
    Finally the woman made a 3-point turn, pointed her car in the right direction, and drove on. At this point, time stopped being ‘frozen’ for the other drivers who I was again watching intently; their faces and cars snapped to life, and started moving again. I drove on ahead as well; there was no reason to keep sitting there.
    I’ll never know quite what happened that day. I’ve never before or since experienced something where other people and things seemed ‘frozen in time.’ I would love to know if anyone here has experienced something similar.
    Thank you for reading 🙂

    In 1988 while driving in a north-east direction from California and up through the state of Utah in an 18 year old car (1970 Buick LeSabre, 4-door, brown with brown vinyl top). My car trunk was packed full of personal possessions, so the spare tire was secured to two racks on the car’s roof to allow for maximum trunk space. Running low on gasoline, I needed to find a gas station in the salt flats somewhere. Saw a billboard indicating the next gas up ahead, so I exited the next ramp and came up and around to a large service station with about 12-16 pumps. There were no other cars pumping gas in this sprawling area, as I drove in, except one other car … a 1970 Buick LeSabre, 4-door, brown with brown vinyl top!

    O.K. I can accept the fact that one may encounter an identical car like your own, but how many 18 yr. old cars are still on the road in the middle of nowhere. But, I’ve left the best part to the last. This same, identical car to my own (year, make, model and color) also had a tire attached to two racks on the roof, exactly like my own car!

    I remember thinking “how unusual” as my eyes were fixated on the exact replica of my own car, including the spare tire on top. I couldn’t see the driver. But as I pulled into a pump lane situated about 6 or 7 lanes away, the other car began to slowly pull out of his lane and exit the lot.

    As stated, it would be an extremely rare occasion to encounter two identical 18 yr. old cars in one place at the same time, especially in such a remote area. But, what are the odds of having both identical cars having their spare tire secured to the roof??

    Anyhow, I’m not sure whether a “time slip” occurred where “I” had arrived 5 or 10 minutes ahead of myself, or this was simply a fluke with extreme odds of such an event happening. I do remember thinking that I could drive into the lane next to him, but thought it better to give a wide berth, as so many other lanes were open. Since that day, I’ve always been puzzled by this story.

  • Chrissy Lynn Castro

    I started researching what this could be and finally found this becauseI really didn’t even know what to search for.I live in Milan MI and I expierienced something just like this. I was driving in Dundee, MI about 5 miles away from Milan with my 5 year old when all of a sudden everything changed to some time in the 1800’s and I was driving at night so there were no people around anywhere! All of a sudden my surroundings changed it was light and people from the 1800’s all around. I slammed on my breaks because a lady pushing one of those old baby carriages was crossing the road right in front of me. It was so so weird and everything changed around me but not me because I remember looking around the car and at my daughter. I can’t believe this is a real thing because I thought I was going crazy. Still I have told my husband and maybe one other person and they listened but thought I was making it up I’m sure so not something you want to share with someone who has no idea what your talking about! They just think your nuts or a fabricator! I want to add this only happened for seconds maybe, not long at all and then it was gone and I was sleepy so I just wrote it off but when you think about something you know happened you want to make sense of it. Esp. something this strange!

  • gram64

    I believe that at least some of the time-slip events are caused by ghosts, who are able to manifest the surroundings of their past time as well as themselves.

  • frank tomasic

    what was the reaction of these people from the 1800’s that you almost ran into? did anyone look at you or react???

  • william

    maybe when we die we come back as the same person, in other words we live the same life over and over forever. that could be why we know things that’s going to happen before it does.we remember bits of our past life.

  • Chrissy Lynn Castro

    I was looking around and it happened so fast, I remember looking at the people on the street but I don’t remember making eye contact with any of them. I do remember the woman pushing the baby carriage and she just stopped and I’m slamming the breaks so I didn’t hit them. She looked frozen in shock the same exact way I looked and felt! I slammed on my breaks, I heard the tires screech and my eyes never left her. You know when you stop suddenly like that and you jerk forward and stop, that’s when everything went back and it was night again! It was scary and shocking but it was also interesting when I found stories of other people who had expierienced it! You know what the weirdest thing of all is I just recently brought it up to my daughter, whom is now 13. She was quite scared after and didn’t even want to speak about it and I just thought yeah because your mother almost killed you and is seeing people who aren’t there. No, she said I heard you talking and yell but I couldn’t see you, you disappeared for a second! I thought this teen is messing with me but I know when she is scared and she said mom you disappeared for a second! I said, I probably fell asleep at the wheel she is adamant that she heard me say, WTF is going on, I must be loosing my mind, and then O shit and the thing is when I looked at the people on the sidewalks as it first happened, I know I looked right at her and she was asleep! My kids sleep soundly, you can vacuum, saw, whatever, they aren’t waking up! I looked immediately at my hands, at me in the mirror and then over to hear, I was in complete shock! Yet she told me the kid version of what I just told you I said and I know she was asleep. She says she was awake and saw me disappear but could here me and I reappeared at the same time everything disappeared. Apparently the slamming of the brakes was the ending for whatever this event was.

    WOW! That’s fascinating. It would be interesting if you could try and find old photos of the area from the time you think you were in to see if you recognize it from your experience. Maybe your local town hall or library has some.

    In 2001, I was working front desk at a hotel and was reading a book when a man walked up to the counter and looked at the papers on the desk. He was wearing a red plaid shirt and hat. I put my book down and asked if I could help him and he just disappeared. I looked around the desk and no one was there. I went back to reading and he appeared again 2 more times and disappeared. I was freaked out and called my husband to come sit with me because I thought he was a ghost but he was as real as anyone I’d seen. Now I think it may be a slip in time. Maybe he thought I was a ghost too.

    Uh, shouldn’t that be “brakes”? 😉

    Has anyone tried to plot these time slips location and time to see if there is a pattern I know it may be hard since some people may not want to speak about what happened to them. Plus as I read this my phone said I visited this page a day before after I only found it today possible glitch in technology but ironic nonetheless

    The case of Sir Victor Goddard reminds me of a story I heard back in the 1960s. Unfortunately I’ve never been able to locate any independent confirmation and after so many years it’s impossible to say whether the account could be true, fiction, or an outright hoax.

    Reportedly the pilot of a small Cessna/Beechcraft-type plane exited a cloud, much like Sir Victor, and found himself on a collision course with an ancient biplane. He managed to avoid a direct hit but his wing still clipped the biplane, sending it down. He flew back in an attempt to locate the crash scene but didn’t see anything.

    Both intrigued and frightened by the incident, the pilot made followup inquiries in an effort to find either the plane or its pilot. Eventually he met someone who knew of a crashed biplane matching the description – except that it had been stored in a barn for decades. He got permission to inspect the wreckage and found not only a gash in the plane’s fabric matching the location of his “clip”, but a log book that recorded a collision with a “strange, futuristic looking aircraft”. VERY spooky.

    Um you do realize Obama was elected president in 2008? I’m assuming this is the end of 2008 he slipped into since it’s winter. He was a boy then and probably wasn’t paying attention to the fact that Bush would still be in office another two months. He just knew Obama had won and thus the new president. But in your later comment, you do bring up a good question as to how he knew the news. I’m also startled by why he felt the calendar was wrong and should have been 2008 when he originally came from a time period when it was 2004.

    In 1993 a friend an I were in Europe (Paris, Chamonix, Italian Lake District, Florence, Venice, and Portofino).

    On the second-to-last day, we drove from Portofino to Milan arriving in Milan about 5:00 PM.

    We had the hotel address but not a clue where it was, so we stopped to call for directions.

    The desk clerk who answered spoke such broken English that I could not understand a thing he said and abandoned the call.

    I got back in the car and told my friend that I thought I could take us there, although I had no idea where it was.

    I began driving through the city streets of Milan listening to thoughts in my head telling me where to turn.

    It was a thirty-minute drive and probably ten miles, but suddenly there was the hotel, and all was we

    I don’t know if this counts as a time slip but when I was 11 years old I had a very detailed dream, It was so vivid that it was more like a memory of something that just happened than a dream. Fast forward almost a year later and I was waiting on my friends (who had recently moved out of town) and their mom to pick me up to go on an out of town trip with them. Now I had never been to the city that we were going and didn’t know the people we would be staying with so it couldn’t be a situation that was just similar to a previous trip. Anyways as we got closer to our destination I realized I had been here and done this before. As we pulled on to their cul de sac I knew the houses, the huge old oak tree with its towering branches, the old log sitting on the curb with grass growing around it and I knew there was going to be a note on their door explaining that they would be at restaurant down by the river waiting for us. Every detail from the houses, trees, cars and even the weather was just as I knew it would be yet I had never been here before. I have seldom talked about this and could never rationalize or make sense of it.
