So, we (myself, Ivan, Rebecca and Chad) were driving from the DC area to my old house in Pennsylvania. We had been doing Interstates, but near Baltimore, we got off to do some things. Rest stop, food, a little shopping. Then it was time to get back on the highway and continue. Ivan was driving. It was his car. I was navigating. I wasn't using my GPS, but was going by memory, and was trying to backtrack a route I had taken earlier. I had Ivan turn onto a dirt path going through a construction zone. It was a shortcut to the onramp to the Interstate. I knew it would come out right by where were needed to get on the highway. There were sharp hills and valleys and ditches. and I knew you had to basically go around to thr right, but couldn't see the way clearly. So I hoppped out of the car and ran ahead to check out the right way in order to make sure I knew how to navigate.
Then I turned around and headed back to the car, and in one of the dips, I suddenly saw just the roof of the car, slowly sinking in a hugh pit of quicksand. The car was almost out of sight and huge bubbles were going "glug glug" from the sides as it sank.
Suddenly, I saw Ivan's head, then Rebecca's, then Chad's. They had managed to get out of the car and were trying to get out the quicksand. They got to the point where they were not sinking any more, but were still chest deep in the mud. I told Ivan I was sorry about his car. I expected Ivan to be very upset, but he was amazingly calm and said it was OK. Meanwhile, Rebecca was pretty upset at me for giving the wrong directions and making them almost die. Chad did not say a word.
And then I woke up.
Great job, moron. And of all places to get us stuck in quicksand -- Baltimore! Hope we didn't catch any STDs.
Hey, I couldn't see what the three of you were doing under the mud, so don't blame me!
Sorta sounds reminiscent of getting stuck in that mud/ditch on one of your random trips.
In my dream, it was much the same shape and size. But we were heading across it in the opposite direction.
And it was in Baltimore.
