  1. I went backpacking into Emigrant Wilderness over labor day weekend. I read an old report of a daylight BF sighting on the southern end of the Relief Reservoir and wanted to explore that area. Went in at Kennedy Meadows trail-head and climbed up to Upper Relief Valley. Distance was about 9.6 miles and climb about 3,600 ft. Took me 2 days to climb. Unfortunately, the Creek Fire (NE of Fresno) dumped ash and soot on the whole area on Saturday afternoon and I decided to bail out on Sunday (instead of Monday). At 5 pm on Saturday, I could not see the sun and it was

  2. So over the weekend me and tha wifey took a little trip we went to willow creek and drove down the Bigfoot Highway hoping to see a sighting or hear a sound. We recently learned Bigfoot likes berries and fish and such other things off the land heard many stories how Bigfoot would barter with the natives. Maybe people beliefs are different but we know he is out their and just waiting to come in a encounter with him

  3. Went to see my Surgeon to drain more fluid yesterday, and she says things are healing well. Had a meeting with my Oncologist this morning. She said, long story short, that my risk assessments came out the lowest that they've seen, and that means NO CHEMOTHERAPY and NO RADIATION! They think they got all the cancer. I'll still have to do the hormone therapy, and I meet with that doc in a week. I can return to limited work next week, too. Which is good because i am out of vacation and sick leave! More good news!

  4. Personally, rather than ridiculing, I respect and support our law enforcement agencies such as the FBI. Apparently you feel differently. From the Portland field office of the FBI: "Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control. Please help our entire community by only sharing validated information from official sources." "FBI Portland and local law enforcement agencies have been receiving reports that extremists are responsible for setting wildfires in Oregon

  5. Those "one glimpse" and sounds in the night are not really outlook-changing for me. Those are part of my outlook, always have been, except the first glimpse lasted at least 3-5 minutes and covered roughly 550-600 yards of total travel beginning more than 100 yards to my left, moving 75 yards in front of me, and continuing away for 400+ yards to my right before going out of sight. That's not a glimpse. It is plenty of time to ask yourself questions, to weigh what you are seeing. Oddly enough, despite all else, I can't report any bone-chilling cries. "Whatever." So, w

  8. Don't know if anyone local is checking it out. It came from a friend, who is a counselor, and the client was okay with passing on the story, but nothing else (aka contact info) because of confidentiality issues. I'm a single mom working a part time job with a disabled, mentally ill teenager, multiple animals to care for, a 21 year old truck, who just had a double mastectomy surgery 3 weeks ago for cancer on August 28th, and I'm looking at chemotherapy and/or radiation in the coming weeks. And it wouldn't be a three hour drive. It would be a six hour drive t

  11. Well, I made it up there and back today. My girlfriend asked how long I was going to be gone and I said I figured since we were leaving at 10 am, it was 2 hours up there, 2 hours to find the site, then 2 hours back. So, around 4pm? She giggled. We got back at 8:30pm... The trip was a success. But it wasn't looking like it was going to be. About half way up to the site, our guide remarked that there was quite a bit of new growth in the 10+ years he'd been there and wasn't sure where he was. The terrain was steeper than he remembered and covered in thick overgrowth and downed

  15. Did an overnight backpack into one of my favorite general areas. There are lots of ponds and we passed several along the way. Went farther into the inner ponds than ever before, so it was new territory for me. The trek in was slow going until we hit a cedar swamp which became impassable, try as we might. Went about halfway along the right edge of the cedar swamp and the sun was getting low so backtracked and set up camp near a small beaver pond. It got bitterly cold last night. No tracks found nor sasquatch sounds but the sky above was twinkling with more stars than I thought poss

  16. Madison, I wish I lived near you. I’d walk your dog for free, and pack you and your companions several lunches and snacks to take like fresh banana bread. What I’m really saying is I support your efforts to lead a productive life (work, family, squatching) while dealing with cancer treatments, that are well known to sap your energy. All the best to ya’!

  17. MORE GOOD NEWS Recovery is going well. Better yet, the surgeon's office told me that there was no cancer found in the lymph nodes. Hooray! That means it hadn't spread and the mastectomy should have removed all of the cancerous tissue. I have an Oncology appointment next week to discuss radiation and chemotherapy. Yeah!

  18. Reports say people have shot them dead. Watched and heard them whimper, groan or scream when running away after being shot- even with a 30.06. Not really my idea of anything but large, powerful flesh and blood. A fair question might be is there an animal that has been see LESS that a Sasquatch in th last century? And if so why hasn't IT been given a paranormal status- at least I haven't heard of anyone doing so with any scientifically rare species. I can see where the fact that there is no specimen for study might result in a paranormal evaluation but, for me at least, there are thousands of r

  20. It's been a long day and night. Getting ready to go to bed, but wanted to share this. Hopefully you can make out the toe prints in this picture. The water made it difficult to capture on film. It has the same shape and size as the print I posted above from the track line. On top of that, the reflection of the trees above in the water filling the is beautiful.

  22. Because they want to burn the white patriarchy to the ground? Why would you settle to burn down one building when you can burn down an entire town? And they are not “anti fascists”.... as they are communists. Which as a US constitution loving Libertarian? I consider Nazis and Commies kissing cousins. It’s said the only thing Hitler and Stalin disagreed on was economics. And Nazis and Commies love to burn things to the ground.

Thanks for the reports @Explorer, @wiiawiwbJust back this am from Baxter State Park, mainly a hike up Katahdin and given the campground atmosphere I wasn't expecting any activity but kept me ears and eyes alert to the small possibility. There was a sighting on the other side of the mountain in 2003, throwing small rocks and a good visual of a hairy nighttime visitor in camp, multiple witnesses and well lit with flashlights as it raised its arm to block the light. No such luck for us. Beautiful nonetheless-- On the way up the Abol, a lot of real esta

Lets be honest, maybe they did, maybe they didn't, but you have to admit this is something right out of antifas playbook. I will leave it at that and move on as well.

  31. From 1955 to the late 1960s there were very few major fires in Oregon. The forests were logged and managed. Then the environmental (?) activists started stopping logging which has resulted in no thinning and very little logging. Clear cuts may be ugly but they make excellent fire breaks, to slow and control fires. One of the fires that is over 120,000 acres right now was spotted on the 8th of August and allowed to burn for weeks staying under 15 acres for much of that time. When it got to 150 acres they started trying to contain it. But the winds hit and it blew up in the l

  33. Date & Time - Monday, September 7, 2020 - 10pm+ Weather - Warm 75°F, some wildfire smoke, very windy, hazardous Location - Lane County Oregon What Happened- NorthWind and I went out with our FLIR cameras to explore an area where I had my first encounter at exactly this time of year in 2012. The trail was hazardous, with falling tree limbs and branches all over the path. We bailed after 15 minutes down the nearest road after a huge tree limb broke and crashed on the path 50 feet behind us. Must have been 15 inches in diameter from the sound of it, it was big.

  34. I got tired of scratching up my '18 Outlander PHEV on the trails, and having to stop due to slightly too deep trenches and washouts, so I sprung for a used '06 Hummer H3, with all the off road goodies, rear locker, 4.56 gears, 4:1 TC, and 33" tires. I bought it Wed., and my daughter and I took it for our first trail run, to the valley where I had my sighting and track find decades ago. It was a nice day, some cloud, some sun, and temps just below 20C. Once inside the locked access gate, we only met 1 other family, in 2 4x4s, who also had the gate code. We saw very little wildlife,

  35. I don't use scents much. I have some apple cover scent. One time a bottle ruptured inside my jeep. At the time, I was hauling my daughter back from weekend visitation, and I thought it was the apple scented shampoo she used. Dang, that's strong! When I found what it really was, I was real happy I had not been using skunk cover scent. I have some bear-in-heat lure somewhere. I'm going to pour that over some hippie rafter's ice chest ... when that poor SOB gets back to town after watching a bear "hump" his ice chest out across the sand bar, he's goin' to whup his drug supplier's

  36. Ironically, I was just visiting a friend of mine at work in his building and we were talking about weekend plans. This guy lives a couple of blocks away from me in a tiny town and I've known him for a few years, but we've never really hung out outside of work. So we were in his cubicle and his wife and a co-worker stopped by. The co-worker is also a friend of mine and she starts telling us how she and her husband reserved a cabin up at the Lochsa Lodge, which is just a few miles from where I had my only personal encounter, and are headed up there tomorrow.

  37. You can sort of gauge an animal's mindset most times. I've heard of several accounts of close encounters with these creatures and people who were armed and had a clean shot didn't take them because they were overcome with emotion. I grew up around large animals having been raised on a small horse ranch and I've been told that I am somewhat of a horse whisperer. I've found that emotional connection with other large creatures. I'm a big, tough, straight-laced conservative guy, so what I'm about to say may seem a bit loony, but I honestly think an encounter with such a c

  38. A human can cover 21 feet in 1.5 seconds over level ground to attack. Given that Sasquatch is often reported as possessing almost supernatural speed, I would assume that they could cover ground much quicker and over rougher terrain...if they decide to attack you. That being said, I am going to try and get as close as possible in order to attempt to obtain clear video. The reward outweighs the risk in this case.

  39. I also found an unusual sign. A rather large, flat rock was sitting on top of a fairly freshly broken off branch. The rock was obviously thrown and landed on the branch. This was in the middle of an old skid trail where no humans have been since the last time my friend visited the site, over a decade ago. I don't know of any animal that can pick up a rock and throw it so it lands on a branch. Odd. It was a great day, and I am always amazed by the sheer vastness of the wilderness out here. On the way back, we stopped at an overlook to take in the view.

  40. Fundamentally untrue. Any body of evidence, anecdotal or otherwise, can be examined for consistency, for apparent patterns of cause and effect, and for alternate explanations. If none are found, then you have an opportunity to discover something new, you know, do **REAL** science, rather than just acting as an apologist for the current state of science. If humans did not have the capacity to wonder beyond the bounds of the known, then attempt to test and explore beyond those bounds, the world would still be flat. Stop being so stodgy, such a stick in the mud. Look at the things you

  41. My hiking / hunting / bigfooting buddy and I just did our annual backpacking trip. Like last year, the 2nd night's camp didn't pan out so we wound up pushing hard and finishing with a 2 day hike in 1 day. This year, his 30-ish year old son came along .. first time. He's also a multiple witness. Though I calculated the time to be prime, there was not a hint of bigfoot activity. They heard ambiguous tree crashes and a critter or two run off in the brush. I don't think it was bigfoot, the area just didn't have that "heavy" vibe it gets when they're around. It was a succ

My grandfather died about 15 years ago while I was living out of state and I couldn't attend his memorial service. I heard that he was cremated and ashes spread, but never knew the details. That side of my family is dysfunctional and bitter. Grandma's ashes were stolen by my aunt and no one knows what happened to them.

She prefers her own FB page where she controls the narrative and various sensational radio shows where sympathetic hosts feed her softball questions for her to seemingly hit them out of the park, without any chance of rebuttal. See my Appendix D for the only exception on Die Tiefe.

Now make sure you take good care of yourself and never miss an appointment in the years to come! I don't want to rain on the parade of upbeat survivor stories, but know that you are blessed! You've been given the grace of seeing your son grow up, being able to continue looking for bigfoot and learning how wonderful friends can be. You are cherished to the moon and back by some I'm sure. For my part, I appreciate you. Hang in there.
