  1. My husband and I were camping off of road 376. We had spent one night and plans to spend another. That was until we’re heard something running at us. We could not see it but what we felt was anger, and that it didn’t want us there. We packed up in 30 minutes and left. This happened yesterday evening. Be careful out there, you never know what has happened to someone out there. We will not be going back
