    Stick Structures are not evidence

    US Forest service is already ahead of you on the coverup! Physical Factors Aspen is affected by a variety of physical and mechanical factors as well. As aspen is very intolerant of shade, the lack of light may affect tree vigor and regeneration. Mature aspen trunks may sunscald if they are abruptly exposed to large increases in sunlight. Wind can sometimes severely impact an aspen grove as would a severe forest fire. Trees are blown down and broken, the area is opened up, and aspen suckering is stimulated. Snowstorms may do extensive damage to aspen if the snow is wet and clings to the aspen crowns. Limbs may break, sapling to pole size trees may be broken off, bent to the ground, and sometimes partially uprooted. Weather-related phenomenon, such as hail and lightning, temperature extremes, and drought may damage aspen.
  3. This January 1993 report is within a few miles in the same month. It may be related to the other two, but gets no separate SSR entry.

    Stick Structures are not evidence

    To continue the discussion I would like to add my observations regarding arches and tree breaks (I purposefully ignore tree structures presently, because they are much more complex, and I feel their manufacture involves more complexity). Last summer, after observing many tree breaks and arches that appeared to me to be due to other than natural causes, I began to photographically document and record their GPS x-y locations. Some observations in mixed coniferous montane forests (pine, spruce, fir, aspen trees at elevations of 8500 – 11,000 feet) over the last few years: Tree Breaks 67 tree breaks described. All involved Aspen trees. Range of tree diameter at break = 2.6 - 6.2 inches. Breaks occur from 2.2 to 15.7 feet above the ground level (median just above 8 feet). About 2/3 of the breaks exhibit obvious left rotation of a few to many degrees (max about 15* - most a few degrees only). All the observed breaks are within 100 yards of a human trail – some next to a trail, some within view from a trail, some well removed from a trail (but not far). 65 of the 67 breaks lean toward the trail – usually within 10-15* directly toward the trail (I have observed only 2 breaks that lean in the 180* azimuth away from a trail). I am including a few photos of some breaks. One of the included breaks has with it a personal story that I will relate if a discussion ensues. Arches 34 arches have been described (many more have been observed). The arches are what I say are graceful curves with a fairly consistent radius. All arches involved Aspen trees – thin saplings in every case (2 – 5 inch diameter near base). Arches were made (or occurred) while the saplings were alive and supple, although most are now dead and brittle. About half (16) have their tips anchored into the ground and then pinned with a branch (usually a short aspen branch) inserted at a low angle over the arch tip. One arch in particular was pinned in a much more complex way – see my photos in an earlier post in this thread. Once the aspen arch sapling has died the pinning branch can be removed with the arch remaining in place, so some of the older arches may have had pins removed by natural or other forces (I see no way to have determined this). In other words, all arches may have been pinned at one time. Aspen arches made during the current summer growing season (2018) rebound to some degree if they are unpinned. As a general observation – I have hiked through numerous aspen groves that do not contain a single break or arch (or other structure) that I would consider anomalous. Then, in some of those groves, it seems like I have crossed a sharp boundary and entered a zone with numerous breaks and arches (and structures and tangled, intertwined aspens – like a fence) that appear anomalous. Wind and snow certainly work in wondrous ways!

  7. There is only one big tower found on Google Earth in the area, but it is not of Nova Road. It's South of Cocoa Water Plant Road, which is the next turn after Nova from Highway 520. BFRO and John Green had this listed as Brevard County. Nova Road and Cocoa Water Plant Road are not on Brevard County. They are in Orange County. The JG report was corrected to match.

    Dam that thing sure penetrates steel plate. Wonder if it would penetrate a modern armored vehicle. The World WarII soldier did not like to be in something where the round entered then rattled around a bit before loosing its energy. It looks like he is afraid of a barrel failure because of the sand bags.

  12. If you want denials just ask them face to face. The WA DNR ignored an information request I made via email. The USFS and National Park Service have denied knowledge about BF at different situations for me. Me or my hiking companion simply naively ask if they know of sightings in their area when we stop by a Ranger station in a new area. The answer so far as been no except in one case down in Oregon. That Ranger said someone had reported a sighting. She was an older woman and probably had been there for a long time. We drove out to the area and looked around since we were camping nearby. That was up NF-19 out of Oakridge Oregon. River runs through the area so I would say it would be likely BF habitat. I don't wear BF T shirts or indicate I know anything about the subject. That makes me suspicious when BFRO reports have encounters in an area and some of them report having notified a Ranger who don't seem know anything about it. Even if I did not have personal experience, I would probably say I have heard of reports if I was a Ranger. You would not have to say you believe them. Unless, as I suspect, their official policy is to deny it. I will continue to ask, just in case another Ranger feels like being honest.

  16. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_New_World_monkey_species I think it’s pretty easy to understand. The list is extensive, almost boringly so. Not so much for extant bipedal ape men.
  17. I'd like to see a list of those denials. The only one I know of was the letter out of New York that I posted somewhere.
  18. Anyone ever wonder why some monkey in South America thought to be extinct can be accepted by science from simply a photograph but the bar for acceptance of BF is nothing short of a still warm BF on a lab table? Add to that denials by F & W, USFS, and the National Park Service. The whole thing defies a simple explanation. I wonder from the powerful forces at work, if a BF on a lab table would even be enough.

  22. Backdoc

    Wally - Walas Bigfoot Suit And Patty.

    Walas commented on this incident with Moneymaker. Sounds like that needed to be cleared up and it seems Walas was the man to do it. Good enough. He refers to a Mockumentary in his commentary. Is this a term Walas was using in general or was there some sort of actual documentary Walas was putting together exploring the Bigfoot subject? I would love to see some Munns Report effort by other make-up and creature effects people regardless if they support the PGF or claiming it was a hoax. Does anyone know if such an effort was made? How do we see it? I am guessing it is just a term he was using vs some presentation.
