I have been researching this story for the past several years. Have made several trips along the road and into the nearby forest. Have actually had a runin with whatever it is out along one of the trails in 2004, and can 100% confirm the legend on my part! One of the scariest moments of my life! Local police have said that the area had one of the highest accident rates in the state, hence the new exit there and also the lights along the road. There were also confirmed reports of missing persons along the area, mainly in the 1970s and 80s. Came across the name of who I believe is the man in question...Peter Albin Fudster. I believe that this is Bandage Man's Real Name. Hope this helps anyone looking for more info on it!
