"I am a police officer and I had an encounter (an aggressive one ) as an 11 year old in 1994 inside the border of the smokey mountain national park. I was on a camping trip with my family and a group of friends consisting of 5 other boys and my younger sister and brother. We were hiking a trail (a rather remote difficult one as I recall) I was temporarily separated from the group to tie my shoes and as they rounded a bend in the trail I looked to my right (down hill) and observed what in my mind at the time was a HUGE gorilla standing only about 50 ft from me . When it observed me observing it it immediately bounded up hill and onto the trail ahead of me cutting me off. I cannot describe how terrified I was.In an attempt to get away my instinct and I don’t really know why was to go uphill and around to where I could yell down at my friends. I felt like if I stayed were I was I’d be killed! So began about a 3 hour ordeal in which I effectively was lost. People began to search for me. The whole time I walked along a ridge line above the trail occasionally hiding from this thing. The entire time it shadowed me. When I would stop it would stop . I did not have a “visual” of it most of the time and only actually saw it from the shoulders up 1 time after my initial sighting. I feel like it was attempting to “herd” me away from safety. I was finally able to walk back onto the trail after 3 hours but only after I heard it farther and farther away and above me. It was raining by this time and I was a total mess completely terrified and exhausted."

The Horsefly Chronicles Presents: Sleepless Nights with special guest Stephen Erkintalo on Saturday September 26th 9-11pm est
I was born September 18, 1985, in Fort Myers, Florida. Living in Florida, I've always been a beach baby. The sand, water, sun, and palm trees are my comfort zone. Although I love the woods, camping, hiking, and hunting, I'm always drawn back to the shore. My hobbies include music, movies, traveling, and adventure. My passions are business and the paranormal.
Ever since I can recall, I've been motivated by my enthusiasm for creating ideas, concepts, and visions. Business and the paranormal have been my two ultimate passions in life. Business is an intriguing art form of the mind. Unlike art that hangs on the wall, business never settles. It's always adapting, changing, and needs you to reformat your vision into something larger than you to help others' needs and wants as they change.
The paranormal, on the other hand, is something greater than us all. It's the unknown and the unknown is drives the desire to create visions. To me, that's more intriguing than business
Join us this week as we welcome country music singer songwriter, Amanda Watkins. Born in the wild and wonderful state of West Virginia, and raised in sunny Florida, Amanda is the quintessential “American Woman.” Strong-willed but with a gentle spirit, holding dear a deep-rooted love of family, of country, of singing and songwriting. When she’s not in the studio or touring, she’s involved in her other passions - from experimenting with kitchen recipes, to indulging in the great outdoors, hiking, hunting and fishing. Drawn to music at an early age, her career has gone from singing in church to standing on the hallowed stage before a packed house in Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Amanda has always delivered powerful performances with her strong voice and gifted melodies and lyrics. One of the proudest moments of her young career was when she became the first unsigned artist to ever play network late night TV, and then share co-write honors on a major Big & Rich single at country radio. She’s been privileged to open for major artists like Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Jamey Johnson and Frankie Ballard. Amanda has just finished recording a new full length album in Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A that includes the single “If I Was Over You," featuring Jamey Johnson and co-written by her with Rivers Rutherford. The single is out on radio and the full album is slated for release later in 2015. We will talk to Amanda about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Amanda Watkins at http://amandawatkins.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with Amanda during the show (718) 766-4193. Join us, Sunday 9/27/2015 at 4 PM EDT! Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.

I started my own company in order to teach, and help other Veterans by any means possible. My company, Level West Integral is just that. I hire Veterans and/or give them direction to find their new direction in life. We have three sides; Backcountry consisting of Hunting, Fishing, Hiking, and anything outdoors. Then there's Gear, which we are working on our own line of equipment for all types outdoor and tactical. Then finally the Critical Skills Training side for Military, Law Enforcement, and Civilian. which is Marksmanship, Survival, and Medical. My dream and vision is in motion and quickly gaining speed, and I hope to be able to be there for Veterans and all who wish to learn.
