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).
Good for you and congratulations on a great purchase! I got to use one of those last year (that somebody else brought to an expedition) and it was awesome. It is much better than anything FLIR has in the consumer market.
BTW, is that a 50 mm lens that comes with that unit or can you choose a smaller lens?
For my FLIR, I got a 35 mm lens and that is more than adequate for the highly forested areas that I go to. It provided a larger field of view than the other options available at the time (65 mm and 100 mm).
Time is a good healer..;)
So as per the original post here, the Olympic Peninsula has since had 6 reports in total publicly, with 2 being Class A's, in the Olympics.
We must bear in mind that these are just public reports however, there are much, much more that aren't public and therefore not added to any databases unfortunately, and as we all know and for whatever reason, there are lots of reports within the back end of that BFRO database that haven't been added publicly yet which would boost numbers even more.
Just my quick take, reddit kind of took over the role of old school usenet and BBS up to like '95 with this pseudo-iffy vibe with everything posted.
Though interesting, it's a fake. West Virginny is wild and weird as we know BUT, it contains every element of a paranormal tale like markers. Temperature/weather changes, unexplained sounds.... This one is too clear and well-written. Looks like someone is practicing their writing, not a real event.
