In 1976 in Bull Mountain, Montana, I
lost about 16 hours. It started when the animals started acting
strangely. Shortly after sundown, I was the only one on a small
ranch hired to feed the stock. The closest neighbor was 4 miles
away. I was 17 miles east of highway 87, and about 15 miles south
Anyway, I was out grazing the horses when I could se a glow on
the top of a hill 600 yards to the south. I walked toward the
glow along a favorite trail I used frequently. The next thing I
recall was I walking down a different path, as if coming out of
an intense daydream. When I got to the house (15 minutes later)
it was 12:00 noon the next day.
When my friend returned from Billings, Montana the next day, I casually
mentioned it to him, not being alarmed at all. Actually I felt
better, so we walked up the hill to check it out. It was April
and there was snow. When we reached the top of the hill, we found
a big circle melted down to the grass. My friend was very
intelligent and he explained it as thermal activity, so I figured
he was right.
In August 1976, I returned to my native Los Angeles. I rarely
thought about what had happened. When I told people what had
happened to me, they thought I was crazy so I soon clammed up. In
June 1982, I returned to the ranch to help build a huge house for
my friend. I met and fell in love with my friend's wife's sister.
Her brother was studying psychiatry at Eastern Montana State. He
had heard the story and was curious, he talked me into hypnosis.
I was hesitant, happily suppressing the incident. All I recalled
was "walking towards the hill after sundown then waking up
walking at about noon the next day."
I did go under hypnosis and he walked me back up the hill. It
worked and under hypnosis I could now see me over half way up the
hill. The dog who was walking with me suddenly got scared and
turned back about 40 yards from the top. Then I saw lights behind
a series of arches and a (hard to describe) dark silhouette with
At that moment I felt as though my father was lovingly standing
there. I felt total euphoria. Then I abruptly came out of the
trance. We tried once again and failed. Now here are my
conclusions: I feel that I had a "friendly visit" as I
felt as though I was totally rested, at peace, and not molested
in any way. I felt like I do when I finish a filet mignon-lobster
dinner, quite the opposite of what you hear of
"abductees." They treated me most benevolently. There
are many more details that I did not include. So,what do you
think? This is a true story. Please give me your take on this
event. I never ever tell this account to anybody, fearing

You have described a classic
abduction scenario except that you were missing longer than most
people's. Apparently, you were available for an over-nighter and
the aliens seized the opportunity at hand. Thus, the aliens took
advantage of this oportunity because no one would notice your
We are impressed you found someone skilled and
understanding to guide you through hypnosis to aid in your
ability to recall what happened to you. Without that
understanding, you could have spent many more years wondering
what had happened.
Unlike most abductees, your experience was very
positive. Some of us have also had very positive experiences with
aliens. These intense experiences serve as profound spiritual
moments which seem to have a special purpose even if we do not
know what it is. Based on what has happened to you in the past,
it is highly probably these abductions continued through the
years and are still continuing. If you recall your childhood, you
probably had other unusual experiences which you accepted as just
a part of your regular life.
If you read everything you can find at this web
site, you will have a sense of what else to search for in your
clues as to your role and purpose in working with the aliens. You
will also find other abductees on the bulletin board looking for
others to discuss their experiences with. At this web site, most
of us here can truthfully say, "Been there. Done that!"
Please join our group and participate in the bulletin board
discussions. You will find many other people with whom you have a
lot in common.
