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).
oops, I forgot the don't between the we an have, thus the...yet it was still developed.
You're sayin' the reporters story tellin' of what Patterson told him doesn't corroborate Gimlin's claim ?
What I was tryin ta say was just because we don't have witnesses of the event or a record of the flight, doesn't mean it didn't happen. Not only was the first film developed without witness or a record of where, but so was the second film.
Pat. I think you know better than that.
Who are the witnesses to Patterson's story?
Gimlin doesn't count since he was apparently "involved".
Yes, of course it was developed. What are you trying to say?
"As far as the shipping of the film, all we have is the "word" of Gimlin." Not sure where or how you came to that conclusion when we know Patterson told the reporter that he air mailed the film to DeAtley in Yakima.
Remarkably, we have witnesses to the development of the film, yet it was still developed. An we don't have any record of where or when the film was developed, yet it was still developed.
Date & Time - Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019
Weather - 31 degrees, light slushy snowy rain, some sleet, little wind. Slick roads, 3:30pm - 5:00pm.
Location - Oregon Cascades, foothills above a lake.
What Happened - Mostly, we got wet. NorthWind and I went out in the hills; he wanted to show me some of his discoveries, since last time I showed him some of my oddities. It was sleeting when we met in the pizza joint parking lot! Ugh. Winter finally came to Oregon! We mostly found wet trees, wet moss, wet underbrush and wet people (us). NorthWind found a cool little skull. We thought we heard some kind of wood knocking sound, but deeper sounding and maybe a bark. It was very faint, like "did you hear something?" faint, where you question yourself. The snowy rain dampened sound. Even though the weather was damp, it didn't dampen our spirits. Just nice to get out in the woods!
The tall teepee is NorthWind's find, but I'm not sure he got a photo of it.
