You’ve probably heard of haunted houses. But have you ever heard of a haunted truck?

Let me take you back to January 29, 1963.

That day, trucker John W. “Pete” Trudelle drove his tanker truck from Keene, New Hampshire to Boston, Massachusetts. In Boston, Pete loaded his truck with 4,600 gallons of gasoline. Then he headed back to Keene.

end-of-the-world

In case you missed it, the world was supposed to end last month on Saturday, September 23. That was the theory promoted by David Meade who calls himself a “specialist in research and investigations.” Oddly enough, Meade said he didn’t really expect it to happen. Obviously, it did not—at least not for you, if you’re reading this.Read more
