late June '94, my wife and I hiked for 3 weeks through the Trinities to Mt Shasta. We started at the Salmon River, and went up an overgrown trail on Wooley Crk, which everybody said was Bigfoot Land. We saw only 6 people the whole time. One night in a meadow, some deer made scary noises grazing a foot away from the tent. Was hoping to meet Bigfoot, but I guess he knew I was coming. I'll believe once I meet them. I'm not afraid of ghosts or flying saucers either. I'm not denying people's claims; I just need to experience it for myself first.

Ensonik, the answer to your question lies in the mental abilities of Sasquatch. They know when someone is after a photo or video. you can't defeat your opponent if he is telepathic and aware of the capabilities of cameras.

I see what you did there.

I always kinda reckoned that Bigfoot's genetic skill/trait was that of ninja stealth. Some critters self camoflauge, some run fast, etc...--Sasquatch seems to have no curiousity about humans, and seems to have defenses to deal with them/us. FWIWIMO

My videos are on Youttube.

knowing what evidence is going to be released next year, by the Canadian I previously reffered to, and the fact that he has offered to buy one of my clips, I am reasonably confident about publicly dislosing my experiences here


My goal for the future is to get a physicist interested in researching the problem.

I am a "sorta" believer but when you start with "Some bigfoot have the ability to transcend geometric space, time and even probe into your mind" you really lose credibility.

There have been sightings near Atascadero. Near a really big building.

Go here.


There is the usual ridicule. Also some links to BF websites. I don't find it hard to believe at all. A humanoid type ape still cruising around, staying away from peeps.

They're out there, they just avoid us....usually.

My experience is that what the North American Indians said about Sasquatch is true.

My biggest problem with coming forward with my experiences is this. The more Sasquatch experiences you seek and do have, the less believable you become.

I cannot describe alternate dimensions, because I have not experienced them, and they would fall beyond our terms of reference due to the conceptual limitations imposed on us being confined to the 3 or 4 dimensions we know.

String theory posits 11 dimensions, but we're all in them all the time, like fish in water.

Invisibility = blindness because light can't bounce off the back of invisible glazzies, not because of any extradimensionality.

Hopefully Ed H. will show up soon.

I certainly believe in the Bigfoot concept and even in the possibility of the interdimensional stuff, but what I have seen/heard on those video clips is inconclusive at best. There are a whole bunch of them so I might have not watched the best one(s). Am I missing something? I just didnt gather much info from the flashing lights.

LEB sorry was reading the other thread bluering linked to. I forgot to mention branch breaking is a bigfoot intimidation tactic.

My videos are mostly shot with night vision so it picks up what one cannot see with the naked eye. therefore they are not what one is expecting to see.

As far as evidence of alternate dimensions go, the most significant video I have is titled "UFOs, Plasma Lights & False Stars at my summer campsite" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzzUboEZ3U8

This video was shot in a campground I lived in for about 5 months, what ended up happening was the Sasquatch started coming into my campsite on occasion. I could hear their footsteps crunching through the gravel but not see them. The campground managers the previous year had quit their jobs because of all the BF activity there.

The night I shot this video, I have no memory of, I only discovered the video recently. Obviously there is no Sasquatch in it, but there are these lights which to me look like reality being ripped open. If you observe the flickering lights in the trees, the way the lights vibrate or spread little rays out, its something I think is significant. I have never seen anything like it. plus my memory was erased after filming it which is the really weird part.

I think this video shows some sort of interdimensional activity, which must be related to the sasquatch activity in the same location.

I put UFO in the title just to attract viewers on youtube, there is no UFO in it.

The problem with just the idea, let alone a reality, of Bigfoots, Loch Ness, and any other monsters is MVP.

Russ, drink, drugs and pain killers are integral tools I used on my video night missions ...

gotta stay relaxed

MVP is a function of Lifespan too. We dont know what their lifespan is, living longer would take fewer to sustain a population.

British Columbia is a Vast wilderness

I am going for a walk and will be back in an hour to further devastate my credibility ....

Read about some of the Sierra encounters. Some are first hand, others second.


Nefarius always ridicules me on this sh#t, but.....read the tales of the people. Some have no money tp gain or notoriety, just ridicule. Why would they finally divulge what they saw???

I suppose this could fall under a "Bigfoot encounter". So I will somewhat reluctantly share my story after all these years. And I expect it to be met with "skepticism and ridicule" But I refuse to "clamup".

It was @1978, and two of my friends enticed me into driving the hundred and some odd number of miles north from Mammoth to S. Tahoe to visit three young ladies. Two of the women were ex-girlfriends of theirs, and they were hoping to rekindle the romance that once was. And the third gal was their roommate and single. Since the math added up, and I had little to lose in the way of money(I had lost everything at the 21 tables more than once, including gas money home)and since they offered to cover the gas, I agreed to drive.

So, come about midnight the six of us were sitting around the fire and everything seemed to be going well. I had managed to not stick my big-foot(no pun intended)into my big mouth and it looked as if I would be, at worst, spending the night on the couch in front of a warm fire.

When suddenly the single young lady sitting next to me exclaims "I have to special order all my ski boots and they are very expensive"(the discussion at the moment was in regards to the cost of ski boots and pro-deals etc). And she explained that she was born with one foot larger than the other. And went on talking about her right foot being a size 9 and that she wished it was the same size as the other "normal left foot".

Wanting to assure her that there is nothing unusual with one foot being larger than the other. I first ask "What size is the left foot"? And she blurts out "Size 12"! And I respond with an incredulous "SIZE 12? THAT IS ONE BIGFOOT"!! (I had expected her to say size 6 or size 7, it being the "normal foot").

Evidently this was an 'issue' with the gal, that my 'friends' had failed to inform me about. It was if I had been set up. The one final test. The $100,000.00 question. And I blow it.

And that is as close as I ever got to seeing "Bigfoot" since the young lady kept her feet snugly laced inside her over-sized Sorrels. And I spent the rest of the night in the back of my pickup truck.

So believe it or not I almost saw "Bigfoot".

After a long mtn bike ride in the Mt St Helens vicinity, we were beat and sitting quitely in the car, no lights, windows down, no sound, prob 10 PM late summer (near the elk pass trailhead, east side of the peak on the edge of the Dark Divide roadless area).

Out of nowhere come several very primal and loud screech/screams, a second or two long, a second or two apart. Then we hear it again, but its in the opposite direction from us! Its another 'one' calling back!

And these creatures go back and forth for about 5 minutes, closing the gap between them with us in the middle!

Finally we were a bit too freaked and honked the horn a few times. The night was quiet after that.

Edison Lake.

Camped out half way between the lodge and the river inlet. Typical bear country, black bears that is.

We're all around the fire, 4 of us with my pup, a rat-terrier breed. She was happy around the fire off leash until we hear sticks breaking and somewhat heavy footprints. (Most can tell the difference between deer or bear...or bigger).

Well, I kinda joked,"That sounds like a bear, dude, we should check it out" to my partner. At that point the dog scurries off reluctantly to check it out.

We satyed put and continued to drink.

The dog started to bark ferociosly and yelp like she was scared. I got up and grabbed a piece and told my buddy to follow me. By the time I took 10 steps, my dog was literally running back to camp shaking with her tail between her legs and would NOT leave my wife.

It kinda freaked me out because I didn't want bears around us sleeping, especially wild (non Yosemite) bears. I told my buddy we should go scare it off, and he agreed. I took another 10 paces and made and heard something grunt at me.

At this point I was near sh#t-in-pants, yet intrigued. I told my buddy to come "check this out". We were still 20 paces from the bonfire.

I said something like "hey, get the f*#k out". Again, a real low, somewhat agressive, "Huh!!!!" came at us.

The f*#ker stayed for about 5 minutes watching us but we couldn't see it. Just hear it. It started to creep us out so we kinda went back to camp and kept an eye out for a while.

Nothing else ocurred, but we had to canoes ready to go out in the lake.

Prolly a bear, but I dunno. We never saw anything and I've never heard black bears do that. They either charge or walk away without incident.

It does appear to be prime BF country though.

Sqwaking noises..... I heard jungle-like screeches many nights in the woods at the cabin this last few months. I assumed it was owls making kills(and the squirrel or bunny or chipmunk making the screeches). I'd hear the owls "HOOOOO!" So proud, so loud. I imagined those guys stood five feet tall!

So I'd hear the HOOOO's, and then sometimes the Hooo would go into a low purring growl sound; very catlike. Sometimes, then I'd hear a fluttering sound, which I'd assumed was their wings, and the screeching.

I had a visitor one night and we were having a campfire, and the sound came and he was....quite impressed.

Anyway - maybe it was a Bigfoot and not the owls, after all....
