This was one of my most disturbing nightmares that I have had in a very long time.
I got off work around 10pm, and decided I wanted to bag a few peaks the next day. So, I threw my camping gear into my truck, and headed out to the mountains. I pulled into a remote campground around 1am and quickly climbed into the bed of my truck for some sleep.
I was woken from a deep sleep, as the tailgate of my truck dropped with a hard thud. Just as my mind began to process what the noise was, I was grabbed by the foot of my sleeping bag, and forcefully pulled from the bed of my truck. I hit the ground hard, and the wind was knocked out of me. I woke.
I was still breathing hard from that nightmare. My mind gained composure, as I was sitting in the cab of my truck. Just a nightmare...
The drivers side door of my truck flew open. I reached to grab it, and a black misty smoke began to fill my mouth. I couldn't breath. I was chocking for a breath of air, and I felt my life leaving me...
I woke. I sat bolt up in the bed of my truck, still in my sleeping bag. Very short of breath. It is disturbing to have a nightmare INSIDE a nightmare, but it is more difficult when you are the only one in the woods. I did not sleep much more that night.
