    The one smell that really brings the memories rushing back is when I get a heavy whiff of Diesel exhaust. It instantly brings back the memories of the large military convoys I led or participated in. I also get some pretty good memories that come back from the same time when I get a good dose of burned gunpowder at a gun range. Military Convoys and large amounts of gunfire/explosions still get my blood pumping from a sound/visual perspective.

    This has happened to me a lot and it almost feels like deja vu or something. I have literally had times when its happened and it stopped me in my tracks. Sometimes it’s unwanted memories like Stratoman10 said above. Kind of creeps me out in a really bad way, almost like you locked that memory away and it’s now in your face.

    Don't worry about it. To me words are like a basketball to the Globetrotters...just when you think you know what's going on...:sneaky:

    A couple months ago I was driving my car and a 2 stroke motorcycle (highly unusual) passed me. The smell of the burning bean oil sent me back 45+ years to the start line at Saddleback park.

    My wife said something derogatory about the smelly 2 stroke fumes and I just smiled and drove on.................

    Dude, been there got the oil stained t-shirts. Every time I have to raise myself out of a chair and my right leg starts to give out,
    I think about those days. Never dreamed the stuff I broke back then would come back to haunt me later. (Broken ankle's fine to ride with, as long as your boot's still on, right?)

    Certain gasoline truck/bus fumes reminds me of riding the bus to Catholic school.

    Aromatic Hydrocarbons remind me of when I was a kid , sniffing gasoline (really a messed up high :thumbd:)

    I still love the smell of anything like that : pine sap, turpentine, the natural stuff , especially :thumb:

    Back when I had a keen sense of smell that used to happen often. Gradually I've been loosing my sense of smell so if it triggers a memory its usually a strong bad smell that does it.
