Last year, we decided to gather a couple families together
and go camping. I love to camp so it was something I
looked forward to. It was a last minute planning so we
ended up going down south to a state park about an hour
from where I live (Minneapolis). When we got to the site
(we reserved a family site thinking there were going to be
more people) there was hardly anyone camping near us
(important). During the day, we managed to fight off all
the mosquitos and cooked and do all the fun things.
Eventually, night fell upon us and some of us stayed up to
do a camp fire.
The first night was odd because we did not see anyone else
unless we went to go buy firewood from a house about half a
mile drive away. We pulled our tents close together and
decided to sleep (one of the family brought protection,
but just in case my husband grabbed a butcher knife to keep
inside our tent as reassurance since there are some crazy
people out there). It was probably around midnight or
close to one O'clock AM when we started hearing music. It sounded
like there was a big concert happening and it was clearly
heard. It scared us (my husband and I)
because we knew no one else was on our campsite and if
there was, they were far away. It was happening for quite
a bit so we eventually just held on to each other and fell
The next day, we asked all the grown ups if they heard the
music also and they all heard it. We decided to go hiking
and take a look around. We went everywhere and there
weren't many campsites where we could see other people but that
was it. That evening, we did the same as the first and
eventually when everyone decided to go to sleep, we heard
the music again... this time is was closer and louder.
The next morning, we decided to pack up and leave. While we
were passing our site, I decided to look and search to see
if there was actually a place where there would have been a
concert of some sort or a house that decided to throw a
party. There was nothing but trees and shrubs.
We never talked about it but it still gives me the
goose bumps thinking about what it was, if it was actually
just music at night...
