Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
Just returned from scouting out a new area first visited a week ago. I left very early this morning so there would be plenty of time once through the cedar swamp (4 posts above) to poke around the pond area. It feels like it will produce and I will begin doing overnights. It was gorgeous all day and I was able to put up two trailcams along the way.
The drive in:
The trek in:
The pond meanders left and right. Here it is from several vantage points:
Two barely-visible ducks on the pond:
Who knows -- maybe the very first responder came out after a local call from someone saying "I hit a deer or something" (because who's going to want to say/admit what it really was, even to themselves?). That first responder assessed the situation and made some calls, and they scrambled together a team to handle it under less than optimal conditions. Because while the overall effect was efficient, there are definitely some messy loose ends (visible foot, visible work team).
Route 1 in that area would be hella noticeable to block off and detour around, news of that would spread all over, while a workteam snugged over at the side of the road at night for a short duration would be far less attention-generating.
The uniqueness of the situation I think partly has to do with the bus. Cars driving by would have had a different viewpoint (through windshield and passenger/driver side window depending on approach) than the bus, which has that long door with multiple panes lowering towards the ground, allowing a lower point of view.
Hiflier - I will say that the driver's acknowledgement of awareness of such things was directed more at the accepted existence of Bigfoot, and not towards the crew activity they were witnessing. And yes - I would love to talk to her someday!!
This is a very intriguing discussion, a lot of questions that beg to be dug into more deeply. Thanks all!
If that's a Sasquatch it has no shoulders . The body comes straight down behind not that thick of a tree . At least to me it looks that way . It's just so blurry it could be an animal or just shadows in the forest .
