    Need Help In Central Texas.........

    This doesn’t have anything To do with the hairyman, but I love all the critters out here, except the pigs and rattlesnakes! Here’s a Blacktail Swallowtail butterfly caterpillar, and when agitated, they shoot liquid out of the orange horn deal.....guess it’s toxic or stinks to others, but I like the way it smells Speaking of rattlesnakes, here are 2 males sparing, be sure you look good before you put the kids down for the annual Bluebonnet pics🤪 IMG_4954.MOV IMG_4954.MOV

    Human Cousins pre-Sasquatch

    Yes, for something that has a brain a third the size of ours, what they can do is pretty remarkable. But it's still considered a primitive brain by Human standards of cognition. Nonetheless, I can see that type of brain fused into a Sasquatch-type body. And I do think that's what the Bigfoot is all about. It's make up. It isn't technically an ape. But it's brain says it isn't technically Homo either. It is bipedal (sometimes quadrupedal), its thumb is a little closer to opposable than an apes, but not as opposable as Humans, it apparently builds nests (very apelike), etc.. Quite a bit further along in the primate evolutionary sense, but didn't make it to Sapiens. You know my theory by now, as most here do. It is that Homo and the Bigfoot shared a Last Common Ancestor AFTER the Chimpanzees split off. My hypothesis is that that LCA then split into the Bigfoot (and there may have been several different species), and into Homo (of which there WERE different species. My hypothesis goes further to say that both had advanced evolutionary bipedal bodies, and then similarities, beyond the physical, became altered. Homo's gradually increasing brain size over millennia kept widening the gap between the two branches. Today, Humans are on the field, the Bigfoots are in the bleachers, and the Great Apes are nowhere in the ballpark. The Bigfoots are capable of throwing the first pitch, but incapable of creating or understanding the technology of the game.

    Human Cousins pre-Sasquatch

    Yah, the location of the visual cortex in the various species from front to back is enlightening to those that have neuroscience backgrounds, who would have thunk visual cortex was frontal in apes (and I am not saying Great Apes), all I know is geolocation of chimpanzee is amazing with visual memory and cortex and there are several studies on youtube showing that amazing skill.

    Human Cousins pre-Sasquatch

    This is good stuff, b The first article was a bit confusing in its writing but it was interesting the three Homo species were in the same general area around the same eon. This was obviously more about taphonomy, lineage and physiology and not so much about the genetics behind brain size. There was certainly a brief mention of the split with Chimpanzees which is a critical "moment in our own evolutionary dynamic. It was good to learn bit more about Homo naledi, too. Thank you for posting this.

    While I had a weapon with me during my first encounter, it was not visible because I had been hiking in a county park that is posted no weapons. I had taken it off and put it in my pack. All the rest of the time I was plainly wearing a side arm. I guess I got a pass because of being within a few feet of a juvenile and not harming it. I would guess I was under surveillance pretty much all the time I was in my research area. I certainly felt like I was being watched much of the time. I wonder what behavior would be deemed as dangerous by a watching bigfoot other than shooting everything in sight? I never so much as shot a can because nothing ever happened when someone was shooting anywhere close enough to hear. Maybe they did not think I knew how to shoot? I saw nothing to make me believe they can read minds. If they could, one might have humored me and showed itself.

    Prove it. I think there are some which have been documented, on film/video. One of them...courtesy of Patterson/Gimlin....Patterson-Gimlin. Btw, if the PGF subject is ever shown/proven to have a body height of close to 7'...(or taller)....then that fact alone virtually proves the subject was a real creature...not because 6' 10"...(or taller)....people don't exist, or can't be found......but simply because there are no human beings on this planet who would downplay the height of their exceptionally tall....1-in-a-million...."mime". Roger and Bob both gave estimates of a height possibly shorter than 6 1/2'. Gimlin…..possibly as short as 6'. You're a smart guy, PG....can you give us a reason why anyone would under-estimate the height of their "7 foot tall" "mime"?? Remember….you "know one when you see one"... Note: Patterson-Gimlin now sticks a finger in his mouth....trying to think up a "reason".
  10. The rescheduled date is October 24th. More to come. Thanks
  11. Thanks for sharing. I will read it very soon.

    I do like your scale as I said . One thing it shows is though rare 7 ' men do exist. 1 in several million. The number of 6 foot Sasquatches or 7 foot is a lot less. Zero documented..
  13. Thanks bro! Got it downloaded for reading in the next few days!
  14. For those of you what have just started reading it or haven't started yet this has a more updated edit and so reads a bit better. I initially couldn't find it on my computer but knew I had it somewhere so a deeper search located I and here it is. Anyone who downloaded the one in the OP is welcome and encouraged to switch to this one. The only thing corrected really are minor grammatical errors so it's just a better version: The Tale of Six Rivers - by aka hiflier.pdf *NOTE* For those of you who prefer to use a reading device like a Kindle, once the file is downloaded the file onto a computer you can use a USB connection to get the file from your computer onto your reader. just make sure the USB connection is safely disconnected via the computer's device eject process. For a PC, after transferring the file click on the USB icon and choose the option for safe removal of a device.
  15. Thanks Hiflier...that is the culmination of a ton of hard work, energy, thought, and time. Thank you for all of that and I welcome the enjoyment of reading it and sharing your insights.

    High End Research Gear And Equipment

    A decision has been made although I think circumstance played a large part in it. As I have pontificated before, I'm a believer in rugged gear and think a phone is the weakest link in the chain. I was convinced I was going to get the 66i. My smartphone is old and will be non-functional soon. I'm on the prowl for a new phone and will see how things play out. Given that circumstance, I just bought the Mini and will use it with a new smartphone when I decide which one to get. I've seen some YT videos of GAIA and it's ability to record tracks and do a track back. I'm still skeptical. I'll try it and also load CalTopo on a new phone and see how it goes. If there is any reluctance, I'll sell the Mini and get the 66i. So there we have it...the bad news is I feel like I've compromised and gone to the dark side. The good news is I can kick the Mini to the curb and get the 66i if I'm not comfortable with things. Now...what smartphone shall I get?

    Yep! BTDT. I share that assessment. In two close approach instances, I was hunting with a stainless steel rifle in my hands plain as day. I can only assume that I .. me, MIB, not a generic human .. had been watched over a period of years, patterned, probably tested without even knowing I was tested, and deemed not to be the panic and shoot or shoot first and ask questions later type. My father, who has spent many more years in one of those locations than I ever will, has never seen the vaguest hint of a bigfoot there. If you were to sit with us for a half hour, it would be very very clear why our results are different. MIB
  19. Looking forward to reading it. Thanks!
  20. I’m reading it and enjoying it. Thanks to Hiflier20!

    Need Help In Central Texas.........

    It just makes me wonder about the minerals, or maybe salts. I wonder about that with the prints Madison and I have been finding out by the drained lakes, too. There may be a concentration of minerals or salts. but I am not sure. Have you ever left a salt block out? That's something I want to try.

    Need Help In Central Texas.........

    Hey NorthWind.....I've done some research on this particular species of Sotol, and the roots were a main staple of the Native Americans in the South, however it couldn't be eaten raw and had to be baked in earth ovens for up the 24 hours to remove the toxins, couldn't ever find anything about the leaves as food source though, and can only assume they are fine....they taste good and haven't made me sick, plus the hairyman doesn't eat the roots and older leaves....guess they already know about the toxic (raw) roots. There was plenty of mention about the leaves being used for all kinds of other stuff, such as cordage, baskets, etc.

    Need Help In Central Texas.........

    Fascinating stuff, BigTex. I am not really familiar with sotol. Do you know if it has specific mineral content? Does it grow primarily in mineral rich areas, such as creek beds? I am just wondering if they are choosing this plant for a specific reason to supplement some sort of biological need aside from just "food".

    Need Help In Central Texas.........

    For a tasty sweet snack, put your thumb in the groove, the outer edges are sharp be careful, and pull.....scrape with your teeth like an Artichoke leaf and enjoy.......Lulu thinks it might be good too, lol:) If you look at the scrape marks that my flat teeth make, it's exactly the same as what I find, there's just no way a person or persons are doing this........and what I find has remained very consistent for many years, hogs will get after these too but is very easy to tell the difference, and in particular they don't carry them off to be consumed at a different location, they just tear up the plant and surrounding dirt.

    Thanks Madison.....hope you and family are doing well:)
  26. I agree completely. The movies prove over & over again that Patty was the real deal.

    Thanks for your positive comments, Giganto. I'm glad we are now in agreement, on this specific point. This frame is one or two frames earlier than the one you posted.....it's F307...(I'm pretty sure)….and looks like a good frame to use, for a 'foot ruler' measurement... I estimated the 'apparent length' of the foot...at about 13". Naturally, it would appear shorter than 14.5", since it's being seen at the angle that Patty is walking away at. This shows a shorter 'WH' for Patty...but, the front edge of her foot is pretty fuzzy....so I may have short-changed her foot, somewhat...pixel-wise. That would have provided a good 'correction factor'....to go from Patty's 'apparent WH'...to her 'actual WH'. I guess someone could always replicate Patty's pose, and angle-of-view, as seen in F72....(and/or other frames)....and then replicate it in a 'profile' view, also.....to determine that correction factor. Cheers!
