The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
A teenage couple went out for a drive and the ran out of gas. The boy said he would go for gas; he told the girl not to leave the car because there has been stories of weird happenings in the area. When he returned with the gas, they got ready to leave, but they heard this DRIP! DRIP! DRIP! Finally, they discovered what it was; blood was dripping on the hood of the car.
This was an old boy scout story circulating when the informant was a boy scout.
