If You've Made It This Far Down An Unmarked Road, It's Time To Turn Back Around

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

We've all had the horrible misfortune of getting lost. You know what I'm talking about — those times when you swore you knew the directions like the back of your hand, but you somehow ended up at a dead end.

These stories usually just end with some shameful head-hanging. Sometimes, though, getting lost can result in some pretty creepy encounters, which is something that this Redditor knows all too well.

This South Carolina native was on his way into town when he decided to take a different route than usual.

Instead of taking him where he was supposed to go, it turned into a dirt road with seemingly no end in sight.

Oh yeah...and the trees on both sides of the road were covered in strange animal bones.

It's probably about time to turn around, don't you think?

Luckily, our adventurous Redditor made it back in one piece.

This is just further proof that shortcuts usually aren't worth it.

This creepy situation could have been avoided with a smartphone and a GPS. After enduring that little dose of terror, I'm pretty sure he'll never leave home without a GPS again.
