Airdrie, Alberta

Date:  Early July 2000
Time:  Late Evening

A gentleman called on to file a report. He first told me he
lives in the next town north of Airdrie, Alberta. Back in the
year 2000 he was living in Calgary, Alberta and they had just
purchased the home north of Airdrie. The fellow works evenings,
so one night when he finished off his shift at work, he asked a
good friend if he wanted to take a drive and have a look at his
new home he had purchased. He told me it was a beautiful evening
and they decided to take the trip to look at the new home. They
headed out, both men discussing the distance they would be
traveling from Calgary to the new home. The driver thought they
would be traveling some 40 kilometers, but his friend thought it
would be a little further then that. The driver hit the button
on the odometer which set it at zero kilometers. This way they
would know just how far they were about to travel one way. The
two men arrived safely at their destination and had a look
around and took some time talking etc... It was starting to get
later into the evening so they thought it best to get back on
the road heading towards home. The passenger in the vehicle
mentioned to the driver that he had in-laws living in Airdrie
and would it be ok if they swung by to show the driver their

As they drove along the highway outside of Airdrie the driver
noticed some very bright lights coming up from behind them. The
lights were very bright, has the passenger had turned around to
look he commented on the brightness and how fast the lights were
approaching them. Both men thinking this was a vehicle never
gave it a lot of thought, other than these lights which were
almost blinding to the driver.

Now here is where the story takes a strange twist. All of a
sudden the fellows came upon a large sign, it read "Country Hill
Boulevard" which is the first exit to Calgary. What is puzzling
is that from when the strange lights came up from behind them
and to the sign which read "Country Hill Boulevard", there is a
possibility that some time has gone missing. Both men do not
recall driving through Airdrie at all. The driver took a look at
the odometer and he noticed they may be missing 20 kilometers.
As he mentioned to me, he never gave any of this much thought,
but did find it rather strange. The driver also said he has
driven this stretch of highway many times and nothing like this
has ever taken place.

I asked the man if he or his friend had ever had any vivid
dreams and he said no. As far as he knows nothing out of the
ordinary has happened to him other than this one strange event.
The driver did mention that his friend did lose a little sleep
over the experience.

Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
