GHOST-HITCHHIKER: You judge = truth, lie, legend, half truth.
Allan says -- pour some salt on at least one of these fun BELOW -- GHOST-HITCHHIKER -- stories
On old RT66 between Santa Fe & Gallup, New Mexico --- beware of the GHOST-HITCHHIKER. YEAH SURE --- HERE IS THE BREAKDOWN --- This legendary hitcher, or this big lie or this misconstrued tale, is many different things to travelers. To many the thumbing shade yarn is hogwash, to a minority depending on where they live, the story of a highway wandering spirit is fact... Their is a TWILIGHT ZONE episode from January 22, 1960, that no doubt launched countless GHOST-HITCHHIKER stories. Likewise ORSON WELLES' 1941 radio broadcast concerning a phantom hitcher got people seeing things that were not there. But on RT66 depending on where you are at, people have seen some strange things as in UFOS, a ghost or a version of the GHOST-HITCHHIKER. For example -- one ghost that was sighted and has not been seen in decades outside of SANTA FE, was that of a female shade walking the side of old ROUTE66. This female ghosty, her hair pulled back into a long ponytail wearing a long dress and blouse, was oblivious to the windstorm that encompassed the terrain. It seems some ghosts gain power from electric storms or wind storms. On the side of old RT 66 near the area of where the windstorm phantom was seen, other paranormal shades have been observed or have been heard. Yes, a singing ghost or who knows what, in a lane that was an auxiliary to RT66. Skeptics say these accounts are lies, or the people who saw something misidentified a flesh and blood person. In one questioned episode concerning a ghost near RT66 the skeptics were completely wrong, there will be more on that sighting on an upcoming short video docu. BELOW ---- Lets have some fun with the RT66 slouch hat GHOST-HITCHHIKER in the sportsman's jacket... Farther down on this page - info on RESURRECTION MARY -- a ghost that has been seen and documented more thoroughly than most anything as far as a ROUTE 66 ghostly hitcher. RESURRECTION MARY has been seen on road network that does connect to RT66, or used to before the highway was renamed and rerouted in certain locations.
BELOW: Between Santa Fe & Gallup beware of the ROUTE 66 GHOST-HITCHHIKER -- GADDS!
WARNING! If you see this man (ABOVE) in Santa Fe or on the outskirts of the ROYAL CITY, do not give him a ride. "THE ROUTE 66 HITCHER" beckons & asks, "Going my way?"
THE ROUTE 66 HITCHER has been seen by the side of road, at gas stations & crossroads. DO NOT -- DO NOT -- GIVE HIM A RIDE!
IF YOU SEE THIS MAN IN IN THE BACKSEAT! BROTHER! SISTER! IT'S ALL OVER!
Who knows where you disappear to? Maybe this sinister hitchhiker directs you to old NM ROUTE 666, which is off old RT 66. Paranormal things happen on RT66 - SANTA FE. Further out by Gallup was old Rt666 --- YIKES
"There's a killer on the road." -- MORRISON & THE DOORS sum it up. BELOW.
LEGIT TALE: Old Route 666; The Devil's Highway was a road that branched into RT66. This sinister numbered roadway was known for deadly accidents, strange lights in the distance, skin walkers and ghostly hitch hikers. Yes, this road in the past or its auxiliary lanes have been where people have seen shapeshifting hitchers -- who can vanish or morph into some other type of evil-fury-creature. Skeptics claim the reason why their were or are so many crashes and fatalities on this street of road is due to negligent driving, bad-weather, and drunken driving. That maybe part of the reason claim some metaphysicians, but they also think paranormal energy of all types plays a hand in the calamitous crashes that have happened on this road. Shades, demonic energy, or skin walkers (SHAPE-SHIFTERS) are at the root of a number of tragic accidents. Can a shape-shifter transform into a hitchhiker who is seen ahead of a person on a number of occasions, according to some -- yes....
