  1. 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. 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

  5. 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’!

  6. 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

  7. Good luck with the H3 BC Witness! 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

  10. 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

  12. However, the BF odor is pretty universally described as a combination of skunk, feces, and human BO. Not something you would get from rolling in dead fish. I found an article that seemed to have a reasonable explanation... https://cryptozoologynews.com/tsiatko-skunk-ape-bigfoot-odor/

  14. 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.

Above Moosehead Lake. Kudos! Norse - Also beautiful country on the other side of the continent. Very peaceful. I wouldn't want to leave.

  18. Maybe, but the rumors did not spring up out of thin air. They actually came from a Clackamas sheriff deputy as well as an officer manager. 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.

  20. How long does your hunt go on? How's the smoke now? Ours finally broke a couple days ago. It was ... miserable. We lost much of 2 towns and had a little damage at the ends of 2 others. Last estimate was 2800 buildings destroyed .. no breakout between homes, businesses, and out-buildings yet. Anyway, hunting season begins for me 10/3. This morning I did a little range work with 2 rifles I might call on as backups in case I have mechanical problems with my primary. Feels good to be ready. Much of my normal hunting area is closed by USFS and BLM so that 1) people

  22. Below is the podcast and thermal video about the BFRO expedition that captured a BF on thermal this year. Cliff Barackman interviews Robert Collier and Mike Poole on what happened during that expedition. The event happened during this year's CA expedition on June 25-28, 2020. They had a follow-up trip in July and I think they captured additional video. The video attached below is not very good but it does support and corroborates the podcast story.

  24. Norseman, thanks for sharing. I went into the William O. Douglas Wilderness for the first time last year and loved it. No hunting, just camping and hiking. Went there with others who claimed it was a BF hot-spot. While we did not see/hear any BF sign during our visit, one guy saw an orb moving around in the forest.

  27. Thanks PG and Explorer. It's an interesting area. It's also the only place I've backpacked into where I am never at ease and always alert, and I've backpacked in a number of places around the country. There's something that's just not right there and I can't put my finger on it. I get little sleep at night so I can listen carefully to my surroundings which I'm hoping works to my advantage. The thick forest presents challenges but also offers opportunities. The going isn't easy so few people go there. That's a good thing. The endless number of small beaver ponds and cedar swamps,

  28. It is very awesome! Being in an area so rich with opportunity allows you to try out new locations more easily. Similar to drilling for oil...if I miss it on this spot, I can just try again and hit oil over there. As the number of spots you've been to increases, are there one or two you consider your honey holes? The place you've tucked away in your memory that you'll go that because it has your highest confidence level? I know I do and I work my two spots pretty hard. Others may prefer to find new locations based on sighting reports or because they've studied the re

The elder seems like a delicate situation and after thought, I question the value of possibly disturbing its routine for no good reason. I'm sure you know ethical folks who would be caring in their approach, if any. Take care and glad you're doing well.

  33. I was conducting some research with this forums SSR database yesterday. My hunch was correct: ALL the winter reports (Dec-March) in the Sierra Nevada range are west of the range in the foothills. I also noticed a winter hot zone along Hwy 108 through Sonora Pass near Pinecrest and Cold Springs. A series of reports in 1963 was aggressively investigated by the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Department. The reports can be read on the BFRO site.

  37. Interesting picture. I can't really tell. Correct me if I'm wrong, please, but my impression is this. It looks like rather than having the forest floor duff pressed into the mud underneath by the weight of whatever made the track, instead, that duff stuck to the foot and was lifted away. I suspect there are 2 more toes that are on that duff at the left side of the track, that that part broke off from the part that was lifted away with the foot. Why it was lifted away .. it stuck to pitch or mud on the foot bottom. I don't know how big the track is, but it could be a bear hind

  40. 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

  41. 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.

  42. 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!

  43. I would be more comfortable with that answer, no doubt about it, but I'm not absolutely sure it is correct. There's stuff in the report data that gets filtered out because the groups that publish the reports are trying to "buy" credibility by appearing strictly scientific. That filtering itself is unscientific. It creates a misleading picture of what the data really is. I think we have to follow the data ... wherever it leads, whether we "like" where it is going or not, but few people, other than those who work within those groups, actually know what the data shows. Because of our

  44. Great stuff, Norseman. Thanks for sharing this video. I'm no expert by any means, but I have watched enough supposed Sasquatch videos to be able to weed out the fakes and hoaxes to some degree. I would love for Jake to be real. He looks great, but the animatronic eye blink ruins it. The only footage of Todd Satnding's that I believe to be a legit Sasquatch is the one climbing the steep cliff-side. As intelligent as Todd is "supposed to be", I don't understand why he ever thought the "Muppets" were going to be taken seriously. They look like a horrible attempt of an art exhibit. On

  45. That's the plan...to make it happen on THIS FORUM. And compared to what it has taken to arrive at this point, at least for me, the incentive for finding a hot spot or a bedding area will be easier once we know there is a place that has advanced notice on what might be coming their way. The idea being they will be able to at least line up the sources (suppliers) they will need to access in order to acquire the correct primers and assays for running the tests. If we don't have our ducks in a row and everything worked out ahead of time, then any samples collected will just sit useless with nowher

  46. Well, 7.62, that's one way of prying an upvote outs me But you're correct. My research has not turned up nearly the price tag for e-DNA testing that folks initially feared- me included. In fact, I'm genuinely surprised at how low the costs can be, plus some outfits will supply all the equipment and materials to do the sampling and for no extra cost. That's a deal in my book. I have waited a full three weeks for a second email to arrive and it hasn't shown up, so tomorrow I am making a phone call to get more info. If I can get this nailed down then we'll all know exactly what is expected, what

  47. I know it's been some what of a hot button issue but everything I've researched the cost to have a EDNA test done was average $86.00? to state agencies . It's low cost for them instead of netting , trapping to determine endangered fish populations . That's why they do for the low cost compared to traditional methods . I know I'm a little out of my field , No a lot out of my field but I don't think it would be any where near a 6 figure cost to determine EDNA if a researcher knew a spot these creatures were hanging out.
