Where – no – When

The hangover was a bit worse than usual. The last thing he remembered was that he’d bought a new car and his co-workers throwing a party. He was able to stagger to the car and head home. When he finally felt good enough to open his eyes he was baffled, where was he?

The forest surrounded his car, really surrounded! Old trees and ferns were even growing up through the floorboard, and out the roof. It was like the car had been abandoned for years.

Confused, he opened the rusty door to take a look and found no way to drive out. There wasn’t even a trail he could see to walk out. How long had he been here? The last he could remember was that party on St Patrick’s Day in 1937.

“Hmmm he,” began to think, “Where am I or more to the point, When am I? I’m getting hungry, I need to get some breakfast?”

About Mike

I'm an avid bicyclist, that also enjoys Kayaking, Nature Photography, Cross Country Skiing and Geocaching. There's nothing more boring than sitting indoors in "good" weather.

    A latter day Rip Van Winkle. If he woke up in 2017 and manages to get to a town, he’s going to notice a lot of changes.

    Was he taken by aliens, then returned. Interesting, I hope that he has not aged like the car.

  3. Hahaha! It is one of those mornings when you ask, “OMG, what did I do last night?” It would be mind shattering to wake up in another time zone. Great story, Mike!

    Well consider me intrigued! I wonder what happened to him during the night??

  5. Chris C. says:

    I wonder what happened to him? Time zones? Time travel? Regardless, it must’ve been one helluva a party!

  6. Back to the future for this man stranded in the past. Good story

    Back then, people still knew how to party… ^^

  8. Rip van Winkle might have a clue for him.
