Deja Vu   2 comments

Mt-Sky

25 July 2013

Earlier today I was standing on the side of the road north of Ashton, Idaho. I stood there thumbing for a ride for around two hours. Then this car pulled over onto the shoulder. I put my backpack in the back of the car and got in the front.

The guy who gave me a ride was Nick and he was 23 years old. He was coming from Pocatello, Idaho and heading back to Bozeman, Montana. We talked about a lot of things. He was glad to help out a hitchhiker.

When we were going through this canyon somewhere south of Big Sky, Montana, Nick looked at me and said, “Deja vu.”

I replied, “What?”

“Deja vu. I had a dream this past winter. In the dream, I was driving through some town like Ashton and I picked up this hitchhiker. He was an older guy; I really didn’t see his face. He was wearing a shirt that had North Face printed on it. When I saw the North Face logo on your shirt, I remembered the dream.”

I was wearing a light blue shirt that had the The North Face logo printed on the upper left corner.

I told Nick that his dream and his picking me up in Ashton was a confirmation that we were definitely in God’s will; I was supposed to be in Montana at this time.

I then told Nick that, a number of years ago, I was hitchhiking south of Grangeville, Idaho and this guy picked me up. We were driving through this canyon when he said, “We’ve been here before.”  And then I said, “Deja vu?” He had had a dream a while back where he picked me up hitchhiking; it was a positive dream. We drove all the way to Fruitland, Idaho where he dropped me off.

Nick drove to Four Corners near Bozeman and dropped me off at a gas station. We shook hands and I headed to Belgrade.

The Lord definitely knows how to put people in your path.

  1. Neat! I bet they are like trail markers for you….

  2. Dunamis: I also told Nick that since he was 23 years old and from Pocatello, he needed to read my short story “High Plains Drifter”: it is a conversation between a truck driver and a hitchhiker; the hitchhiker is 23 years old and the truck driver is talking about driving to Pocatello.
