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).
Hiked to an area last night to watch the sunset. The full moon was in its glory. A friend of mine brought his drone which provided a little entertainment. Hiked out in the dark and stayed overnight in the woods. Heard a loud and breath-laden whistle this morning around 5am near our tents. Strange.
Too bad that's all we've heard of this. My suspicion is that this is from personal conversations Laverty had with others of the era and location that he kept close to his chest because of his professional situation with the USFS.
