What I do for a living has numbed me to some things. I have ridden to a lot of historical places for fun that were a little gruesome in nature. I have seen the bloody bender site, Massacre on the Marais Des Cygne, the Mormon Massacre,and some of the John Brown sites. I am not into gore just like history. I have recently started having less than pleasant dreams about a place that I went to entirely unintentionally. In 1999, I attended Wyoming Technical Institute in Laramie. On the weekends, I put thousands of miles on my XR400. One night, after camping in the Vedauvoo (sp?) National forest, I hung out a little too late and found myself turned around and alone in the dark. After following the moon for a while I finally saw the city lights over Laramie I came in from an unfamiliar direction and was running along an old buck fence and was startled to run in to a section covered in flowers. The place was feeling really desolate. I had unintentionally found the site where people had memorialized for Mathew Shepard. I haven't thought about that ride for years. Last night I relived that ride in a very detailed dream. The only difference, was that in my dream, he was there as his attackers left him. I have not had dreams like this before. I hope to never have another. Has any of you been to a place that haunts you?
