  1. Past hour
  2. First, @hiflier please accept my apologies for my off-topic post directed at you last evening. Also, sorry to hear of your aging pets condition, I have been there before and it has been painful but part of signing on to a dedicated relationship with them. I still miss the last dog I owned and it has been years. Second (on topic post) @Wolfjewel, Good suggestion on library which reminds me that I have picked up two ex-library Apes Among Us originals by John Green because of the tepid response of the subject through the years. (It is possible they were replaced with new ones) but these were not in terrible shape even though one has a page or two missing which gives you some idea of people identifying with parts of at least some of the sightings or info. I would imagine authors donating copies to their local reading rooms would be a sweet idea as a reception to the subject. So hey authors what have you done in this respect to lighten the tension about the subject ? My own response has been mostly indifference from friends and I have a neighbor who is supportive but not swayed. Some have said there is no way they would allow one of their children to go out looking for something such as Sasquatch (particularly after listening to some of my experiences). Some people are afraid of them and not just disbelieving. They historically probably have more than enough reason to be fearful of them. Incidentally it seems the 101 book may be written by the guy Monongahela who went anonymous by that name and did considerable sound research with the Sonic Visualiser platform and still does I believe he has done alot of BFRO work and work on long-term recording set-ups. He was on Facebook the last I was active on that platform.

    New footage in Oregon

    Never heard of it. Where did you hear of it?
  9. Eh, just wait until the next Carrington Event. Or, the future upcoming Cascadia Earthquake. Those will slow things down, though the first will most likely be an ELE. I kinda hope things just carry on the way they are, but with more protection of National and State Parks and other designated lands. Don't see that happening right now, but one can hope. I don't think they're all that rare, however. Maybe it's just where i live, though.

    Searching For Bigfoot in Oregon - Take 2

    Date & Time - Saturday, December 14, 2019 from 11am until 5pm Location - A lake in the Oregon Cascades and the mountains surrounding it Weather- 35°F in the hills, some fog, variable light drizzle. 40°F on the lakebed, light drizzle and then more What Happened- NorthWind and I explored the woods above one of the lakes, driving up forest roads and old logging roads just looking for out of place structures and trees etc. We did find one super creepy area. We stopped for a while and I played a recording of a 4 month old baby crying (recorded at my preschool lol). In response, we got two weird gravelly sounds, like something heavy being dragged over gravel but not. No idea what it was. We also got dogs barking far on the distance; maybe they heard the baby's cries and were disturbed? I played it on a mountain side and there were houses a few miles below, near the lake. The sound could probably carry. After a few hours, we were thinking of heading home. On the return, NorthWind remembered seeing tracks in the mud on the lakebed. So, we parked, fought our way through the blackberry brambles and walked up a half mile up the lakebed. At first all along that way, we found dog and various boot prints. We tried crossing the creek, but it was slippery and gross, and i nearly lost my right boot, sinking 6 inches in mud! We gave that up, but those all looked like human prints anyway. We continued walking up the lakebed, to where it started becoming creeks and marshy lands. Eventually we found 2 lines of tracks, a 7 inch and a 9 inch. Must have been around 75 prints! We estimate they were less than 2 weeks old. I'm convinced the littles like to play in the mud (at EACH lake!). There were 32 inches heel to heel! I'll have my video up later. Here's the two lines. My muddy boot next to a 7 inch. A nine inch. 7 inch. A mess of prints. Obvious toes!

    Thank you all for the casting suggestions and information. Both NorthWind and I appreciate all your support. We still have several containers of the current stuff to use up - I think the bag was 25 pounds, so it lasts a while. Now I have a good 20 or so casts, and until i get my bakers rack set up, I'm running out of room to store them in my apartment!
  12. I don’t know if I qualify as an expert on the Chippewa National Forest but I have been to the Lost 40. Did the hiking trail with my daughter a few years ago. We were camping at Lake Itasca (headwaters of the Mississippi). Beautiful area, old growth white pines are magnificent trees. The area is filled with lakes, forest and relatively few people. Also several large reservations in the area.
  13. Going to squachy places with a rv and family is the the ultimate adventure and great for family harmony. If my wife is not into bigfooting, she really likes the adventures associated with camping. It's great to combine discovering outdoor camp areas with a family affair that includes my wife and our nine year old dog. Our dog Ewee barks when something is wandering around out side our home or camp. Hiflier, I'm sorry to hear about your dog. Our other dog, Teddy, of fourteen years was just put down about a half year ago. She had a respiratory ailment, and I took her to the vet. He shot her up with a terminal potient. I feel horrible since watching her go into a terminal state, and can I forgive my self? She was not big into to squatching but was a real fine camp dog. People laugh at Pomerianians, but they are a great early warning system especially if bigfoot comes around the home or the RV.

    ^^ True. Every word.
  15. I am out of upvotes and thank yous. Basically because I like dishing them out more these days Tomorrow you'll get both. My only regret? Can't do it in the same post. Ah well..... Of course, if I could, there are some posts where I would definitely burn up my whole cache in one shot, LOL. So it's probably better this way.
  16. Since we can no longer tell who upvotes who...you should know I upvotes you.
  17. Thank you all, my heart goes out to all those who have lost those so unbelievably dedicated creatures. He brings my slippers........for a goodie of course. Sorry for my disposition. But here's the way it shakes out for me. Once I say this I'll let things go. Sasquatch is a real creature. Of that I have no doubt. There is a cover up of that fact. I am in no doubt of that either. And greed runs the whole show. Again, no doubt. It pisses me off. Breaking through that somehow is my goal, and seriously has been for the last two years. All I do is figure out ways and ideas for accomplishing the task. Period. Those things are behind every serious post I submit. I am 100% "Solve For Bigfoot". And I'm convinced that it has to happen and soon. Okay, I'm done. Said what I needed to say.
  18. Oh, not much But I like your approach. Tough road though. So the gist of what I am getting at really is what you are saying. We re looking at from different angles though. Example: Owl sounds off in the woods and gets recorded and a sonogram gets generated. Human imitates owl and the same thing, recorded with a sonogram, Bf imitates owl, gets recorded, and a sonogram gets generated. My thing is, all three may SOUND the same to our Human ears but would the sonograms be differentMy thinking is yes, they would be different. Because neither source could possibly have the same resonant overtones which a sonogram would show. If this doesn't seem correct then please tell me so I can let it go. And I gladly will with my thanks for your patience.
  19. Thoughts for you and the pup. I made one terrible decision regarding a dog that I'll never forget/live down.
  20. Hiflier, so sorry to hear about your furry family member, which they are. We lost one of our rescues back in early October. Gut wrenching is all I can say about it. We only had her for about 6 1/2 years. All you can do is try to make them as comfortable as possible and cherish every moment you have left with them.
  21. @hiflier knows what I think about some of his ideas and how he presents them. I've also read part of his novel. I think he's a good guy with some good ideas who gets frustrated for good reasons (most of the time). Let's not get off on a tangent with my use of the word squatchy. I meant I camped in national forests and areas that have had a history of sightings. I guess I also have the family sighting...but that's it.
  22. Nor do I. Lots of places LOOK Squatchy, whatever THAT means. My decision to stick to trails is part of me now. Bushwhacked up until about three years ago. 30 lb. pack and all. Got a 16' ft trailer in the Summer of 2017 so things are different now. Using my brain better and more electronics now. But I also know that places I go coincide with reports. I took a route through Tulsa to have 2 hr. lunch with a BF friend. I'm sad and kind of anxious these days because my dog of 12 1/2 years, a true friend, is dying. Melanoma. He's may got a month. He's posted here in the thermal image thread I started. My spouse an I have camped with him and then traveled with him since he was a pup. Needless to say he won't be with us on our next trip. We have a friend in Port Angeles and we're going this Summer.....without him. So I'm a little out of sorts these days. Anything else anyone wants to know?
  23. Shouldn't be floored I have been exposed to several years of hiflier posts that you have probably not yet read. That said, I am always up for a reminder of how others react to others on this forum and that is the gist of my post. I do not appreciate others hardlining their positions so to speak. My past history of ten or more years on this forum predate the post and have solidified my reactions. My post was directed at hiflier not you, if that at all matters.
  24. I don't know if I've even done that despite camping in tents and RVs all over Alaska, western Canada, and the western U.S. I don't know which places are squatchy and which ones are not.
  25. bipedalist, I've actually done a bit more than the activities that you listed. I have attempted contact with Dr. Goodall, yes. I think you know me well enough. I have stated in the past about those attempts as well. Specifically I addressed the shoulder width of Patty so it was a while back. Never got a response. So you're right, nothing lately. Pretty much everything I've done I have brought here but there are also things I have done that I haven't. A couple of years ago I got a lot of flak here about emails so I backed off. Shouldn't have, but I did. F&G have biologists that do e-DNA field testing. So yes, they are a focus of mine and I'm trying to figure a way to get more inside on that. And why not. As far as RVing goes, I go. BF research is a secondary thing because my spouse is pretty sensitive to the subject. It's not like I can tell Mrs. hiflier that I'm going to do research and then just take off with the RV. It doesn't, and can't work that way. If we were both of the same mind then sure, we'd be in it with both feet. But that's not the case. Would she let me fly out to the PacNW on my own and 'do my thing'? Of course she would. But if I have a truck and a camper then why would I fly then rent a car? 12 years ago I had a triple bypass. I would worry her to be on the road by myself and drive 7,000 miles round trip at 70 years old. So I chose to work in other directions and not worry her. But work in other directions I do. Sometimes I get impatient here because I feel limited. Sorry about that. Walk in my shoes. Know what I know, and some of you may act the same way. Best question of the evening! The usual. Caffeine. Might have overindulged, though. Probably shouldn't drive
  26. I've done nothing but camp, in the safety of my 23' travel trailer, in squatchy places. Can I have an opinion and participate here? I'm actually sort of floored this is coming from you. If I read your message incorrectly, I apologize.
