Loss Of Time From Princeton To Chilliwack British Columbia

Date:  1960 (give or take a year)
Time:  After midnight.
Hi Brian, was just reading about the woman who was missing time or the memory of driving to get her kids.
Back about 1960 give or take a year. I was driving back to Vancouver from Penticton. It was after midnight, there was no traffic so as per usual in those days I was cruising about along doing about 80 mph. or 130 kph.
I saw a sign saying you are entering Princeton the next thing I knew I was on the Freeway near Chilliwack still doing about 80 mph. I've always just assumed I fell asleep and some how drove about 100 miles over the top of the mountains. At the time I never thought to check my watch.

Several months later I made the same trip and once again slept coming over the Hope/Princeton, but I can vaguely recall myself driving from one side of the highway to the other, each time my wheels dropped of the road I'd automatically turn the steering and continue until the wheels dropped of the other edge, I remember waking up near Hope.
I don't remember opening my eyes even once coming over the mountain, just drove by feel. Lucky for me and everyone else there was apparently no other traffic.
About 1964 a friend of mine asked me to come with him on a drive to just south of Seattle. I had been working all night and was really tired so figured I'd sleep all the way there. We crossed the border and I started to settle down for a nap.
Then I made the mistake of looking at my friend. To my horror he was sound asleep. Instantly I was wide awake. I stayed awake right to our destination. Believe it or not, but not once did he open his eyes.
We would overtake other vehicles and he would change lanes, pass then return to the right lane. He didn't open his eyes until after we had stopped at our destination.
When we got home I told his wife what had happened, she said, it used to scare her when they first got married and he went to sleep. But now she just went to sleep herself.
