Location: Southwick MA
Somewhere around September 2020, I was leaving a friend’s house in Southwick MA…I was returning home to the Holyoke area about 1/2 hr away.
A familiar route.
It’s almost a straight shot all way home.
I wasn’t drunk or high.
I did have 1 drink at a friend’s house.
I know I was on the correct road because saw the red Chevelle for sale on my left as I took a right onto Rt 10/202.
I actually live off of 202.
About 7 pm I left a friend’s house…just before dark.
I was maybe 8 minutes into the drive…just turning dark…I was on a stretch of road with large old tobacco barns and dotted with patches of woods on the roadside.
Suddenly a deer darted from the left to cross the road.
My lights from Caddy hit it…I broke, yanked wheel left then right I avoided the deer!
Wow! My eyes wide open…heart pounding as I continued down the road and never stopping.
A few minutes later I realized my regular landmarks weren’t showing up?
Confused as the road turned and I was unfamiliar with the surroundings!
I pulled into an unfamiliar strip mall, a couple of cars here and there.
I put the car in park…confused still..mand activated GPS on the car to see where I was in relation to home.
The info on GPS must be wrong since I never updated it ever…pay GMC for updates.
It’s a 2008 CTS…now 2020…
So I used my phone to GPS from home.
I was 2 hrs away from home!
I called wife and my friend I just left!
A laugh was responses.
I was 20 miles south in Avon CT !!!
Confused…I stared at GPS and headed home.
After I got home…getting out of the car…I glanced at the clock… 11 pm!
I also had LOST 2 hrs of time !!
I lost 2 hrs of time and transported 20 miles south!
All occurred when swerving around and missed a deer.
Unexplained so far.
