Hi all from the new guy. I am so glad I found this site. I was beginning to wonder about myself. This 11 thing started about 3 years ago for me. I too would wake and see the number 11 numerous times each week. At first I just passed it off as coincidental or my subconscious was somehow tuned into the number 11 and really didn't give it a lot of thought. Time continued and the mathematical improbability of events with the number 11 became undeniable to me. I mentioned it to a few friends and would get that " what are you talking about " look or comment. I found this site after one such incident last week. The new battery in my truck died for no apparent reason, however, there was enough power to power the clock. You guessed it, when I turned the key the clock read 1:11. I went to the Internet and here I am. From my perspective now it gets interesting. As I mentioned this all started about 3 years ago.
Six years ago I was taking Thanksgiving dinner to my son and his hunting buddy at elk camp. I got a late start and left home about 8:30 PM. It takes about 21/2 hrs to to get to the location where this happened. It's now sometime around 11 PM at night I am cruising 60 to 65 mph in light traffic listening to Dire Straits when I start to gain on the car in front of me. My guess is he is probably traveling about 55 mph. I look in my rear view mirror and see 2 cars closing on me. I get to a point where the forward car is about 3 seconds in front of me and I see his brake lights come on and he turns toward the right hand shoulder. I remember thinking that he was pulling over to let me pass. I think I looked in the rear view mirror next to check the closing cars. When I looked forward again I was head light to head light in a head on collision. Obviously, the car had moved to the shoulder to avoid the accident. What happened next? Brightness, stone cold silence, I see movement and a man's face in the upper right quarter of the drivers side window. This all happened in what seemed to be the blink of an eye. After 4 or 5 seconds of thinking to myself "what the just happened? Did it really happen? What was that? I continue driving and realize I should be right on the bumper of the car in front of me. The forward car is now 1/8 to a 1/4 mile in front of me and the closing cars are way back there. I have asked myself a multitude of times if this was just a very close call or did it really happen. The answer is the same each time. I saw a man's face 18" from mine.
As time passed I had concluded that something, somebody or guardian angel did not want me to die or someone in other car to die. I now think it was me.
