The advent of a full moon has caused a state of emergency in some remote parts of Idaho. In Lake Stanley and the surrounding area the locals are stocking up with extra provisions in order to survive for the next few weeks.
Legend has it that every full moon and especially when there is a 'supermoon' there can be dangerous forces roaming around in the dense forests. Superstitious Idaho old-timers believe that werewolves and bigfoot as well as grizzlies and wolves are more bold and come down to prowl around isolated cabins when it is dark.
The old-timers believe it is very bad luck to have any thing which is red visible on the decking in front of their cabins and do not even have a red pick up truck but plump for other colours instead.
Loggers and ice-truckers are not allowed to wear a red checked shirt with their denims.
Ten years ago during a solstice of the moon a child was abducted by a mad man but was found wondering unharmed in the moonlight smiling and saying that she had seen the 'bright lady' of the moon and had visited a beautiful island in the middle of the lake.
A small rowing boat was found on the shore of Lake Stanley with a small rag doll on its seat. The rag doll had the initials L W; which locals knew stood for Lucy Wilson the little girl who mysteriously disappeared during a moon's solstice in Victorian times and had never been found.
The little girl who was found said that she played with a pretty little girl called Lucille and they had played with dolls and had lived in a lovely little cottage like the one in fairy tales. However, when she was asked to take her rescuers to the cottage she was unable to lead them there to the pretty cottage.
Now the small community which is fundamental and ultra religious has had a 'lock-down' policy every full moon and no man, woman or child is allowed out after the curfew of 8 pm.
However, some cocky teenagers defied the curfew and went out boozing and lit a bonfire on the shore of the lake. They were fooling around having a laugh when some fierce red-eyed wolves suddenly circled around the fire and there were some shaggy, hairy men who were shifting around in the shadows. The men were over 7 ft tall and were naked apart from the long, shaggy hair which covered their entire bodies.
The teenagers were frightened out of their minds and were found shaking and incomprehensible with their teeth chattering whining about 'werewolves and vampires and big foot and other such teenage nonsense.
The elders from the village found a pile of empty Budweiser bottles and some empty Doritos packets in the sand as well as some old hot dog weiners which had been partially eaten. In the sand their were huge 14 inch footprints which mysteriously led to the lake.
Terrified the teenagers begged to be kept safe from the big foot and the vampires and said 'they couldn't handle it dude'. The very thought of going to college or work rendered them into a gibbering wreck. The boys no longer wanted to go out 'hell-raising' and trying to impress the young girls of the town but wanted to stay inside their cabins on their laptops reading weird 'conspiracy theories about nine eleven'. When asked to explain their experience they said that they had been surrounded by the 'un-dead, zombies and vampires and the like - it was a regular freak show.
The next Twilight film is said to be set in this area of Idaho and Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart are said to be keen to meet the local boys and find out what weird phenomenon they had experienced.
Old-timers suspiciously will not venture out of their cabins after dark and say that they can recall people had gone out not being seen again after they had ventured into the dense forest.
