GHOST-HITCHHIKER-RT66-SANTA-FE: You judge = truth, lie, lORE, half truth, MYTH, CAMPFIRE TALE, YARN BASED ON FACT?
On the old interstate between Santa Fe & Gallup, New Mexico --- beware of the phantom thumb-rider. 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-RT66 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-RT66. 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.
FEMALE ( GHOST-HITCHHIKER-RT66-SANTA-FE )
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.
ANOTHER TALE -- GHOST-HITCHHIKER-RT66-SANTA-FE
Yes, a singing ghost or who knows what, was encountered on a lane that was an auxiliary to RT66 and according to one story the now old auxiliary lane was part of 1920s RT66. This ghost is not to be confused with the lady ghost that was seen on OLD RT 66 -- southern side of Santa Fe. This singing ghost was or presents itself as a man. One theory is that this singing ghost is a DJINN?
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, something was there -- and it was not human -- can you say ghost? There will be more on that sighting on RT66 GHOST or ROUTE 66 GHOSTS in an upcoming short video docu, as stated above that page is under construction.
