Some people believe in ghosts; others don’t. But when you’re sitting around a campfire on a dark night, it’s a little easier to suspend your disbelief. Here’s a ghost story about a mysterious bandage man that might keep you up late at night, especially if you happen to be anywhere near Cannon Beach.

Of course, no fully reliable sources exist to prove that this ghoulish bandage man in Oregon exists, but at the end of the night, when you crawl into your tent alone and hear the snapping of twigs or footsteps nearby… you might just wonder if Bandage Man is on the prowl!
