Garrett and Jeremy met during the heyday of blogging, when the internet wasn’t so toxic, and started posting about these topics probably around 2003 or so. We’ve kept in touch, primarily online, since then, and a year or so ago started tracking weirdnesses—dreams and such—on a personal level. One day, we kind of simultaneously had the idea to start putting our experiences on a map, and Garrett suggested we open it up to anyone.
We were already accustomed to cataloging our dreams, ‘coincidences’, strange encounters, etc. and this map is just an extension of that. We’re trying to see if there are strange places or experiences that are actually quite common but go unnoticed because everyone is afraid to talk about this weird stuff happening to them. We hope that you will share your story with us so that we can have a stronger set of data to work with! And so that we can freak each other out!
