Oregon – 48 in ’08

Oregon was my fourteenth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Rick Rogers. Rick is a local researcher in Eastern Oregon.

On the 16th of August, 2008 we camped in the Blue Mountains of North-eastern Oregon. Rick shares his recollections from 1967 of a possible encounter he had near Springfield, Oregon. He also talks about when he viewed the Minnesota Iceman at a carnival back in the late 1960’s.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Rick!

Wyoming – 48 in ’08

Wyoming was my thirteenth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Brooke Raser. Brooke is a member of the BFRO .

On the 12th of August, 2008 several local researchers accompanied Brooke and myself to an isolated mountain range in Eastern Wyoming. Although no reports have come this specific area the habitat appears to have everything required for at least a transient population of squatches. We saw many mule deer, elk, rabbits and jackrabbits in just the short drive to the location.

We used woodknocks and vocalizations in an attempt to illicit some type of response from animals in the area. It was extremely quiet. The only sounds being heard were the distant calls of great-horned owls.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Brooke!

Colorado – 48 in ’08

Colorado was my twelth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Dennis Pfohl. Dennis is a member of the BFRO .

About forty researchers gathered at a remote location in Central Colorado. The expedition was held the 22st through the 27th of July, 2008.

Several techniques were used including woodknocking and limited sound blasting. One or two sightings were made by thermal imager, there was a major rock throwing incident, several possibly vocalizations were recorded including woodknocks, grunts and howls and at least two participants had vehicles struck in the night by unseen intruders.

Sound clip 1
These sounds were picked up at 0330 a.m. I am not quite sure if they are coyote or not.

Sound clip 2
This sound clip was just before daybreak on Sunday morning. There were a lot of sheep on the hillside near our camp.

At 5 sec. there is a loud vocalization I believe designed to stir up the dogs and the flock. I can’t really describe the sound, not a howl, just strange. Then at 50 sec and 53 sec two words were spoken. As to the first sound on the clip a fellow researcher told me that he has heard the same type of vocalization in Southern Colorado.

Sound clip 3
This sound clip was recorded at about 04:30 a.m. Sunday morning by Scott Smith of Arkansas. I appears to be a grunt and either a branch break or a hand slapping a vehicle.

Sound clip 4
This sound clip was recorded at about 04:00 a.m. Thursday morning by Scott Smith of Arkansas. Other members had mentioned that they heard an animal running close to the knoll behind camp.

The area had Peruvian Indian shepherders attending flocks of 400 to 500 sheep. Several recordings were made late in the night of vocalizations close to these flocks.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Dennis!

Indiana – 48 in ’08

Indiana was my tenth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Mike Bardsley. Mike, aka GuyInIndiana has a website called Indiana Bigfoot Awareness Group – An S.R.I. Associate. Mike concentrates on his local area and home state of Indiana and has received many reports through his website.

On the 13th of July, 2008 I accompanied Mike along the backroads of Kosciusko County in North Central Indiana. This area has very diverse terrain, including dark forests and lakes. We saw many locations where folks had had sightings. Mike has done an excellent job of getting the word out locally by using his pickup truck as advertising.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Mike!

Illinois – 48 in ’08

Illinois was my tenth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Jon Buford. Jon is a local researcher in Southern Illinois. We were joined by escAPEe, who is with Squatchdetective.com and has his own blog escAPEe’s hideaway.

Jon showed us areas near his home where he has found footprints and possible stick structures. I was at Jon’s previously and saw several sets of footprints.

Jon’s wife had the original sighting two years ago and since that time Jon has had several sightings of his own, as well as one of Jon’s friends (who I have also spoken with) and the next door neighbor.

We hiked in the woods and was amazed at the wide variety of trees and plants. This area has a large population of coyotes and Jon has seen a black panther.

When we returned from our hike to Jon’s house we heard a very unusual sound coming from the trail just behind us.

California – 48 in ’08

California was my ninth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Bart Cutino. Bart is a member of the BFRO , AIBR , and SRI . Also interviewed was Robert Leiterman, BFRO_California Curator.

About twenty researchers gathered at a remote location in Northern Mendocino County. The expedition was held the 1st through the 4th of May, 2008.

Several techniques were used including woodknocking and limited sound blasting. Members reported a possible trackway in the snow on a high ridge, woodknocks, whistles and a possible rock throwing.

A special thanks also to Tom Yamarone, BFRO_ California Investigator and Bobo Faye, BFRO_ California Investigator for a sing-a-long session by the campfire. Tom’s website and CD’s can be found at Bigfoot Songs by Tom Yamarone.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Bart!

Washington – 48 in ’08

Washington was my eighth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Kristine Walls, BFRO_Washington Curator, David Ellis BFRO_Washington Investigator, and John Andrews, an independent researcher. John has recorded many vocalizations at this site and they can be listened to at Sasquatch Research.net

On the 12th of April, 2008 I accompanied Kristine, David and John into the woods of Western Washington.

John demonstrated his call blasting techniques using his own voice and a PA electronic megaphone. We all took turns trying out the system. John is a real expert at doing different types of calls. The sound really echoed through the mountains but we did not hear any return vocalizations.

A few woodknocks were tried but the night was unusually quiet.

This area had been partially logged in the last two years. It is unclear whether or not this has affected the resident sasquatch population.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Kristine, David and John!

Louisiana – 48 in ’08

Louisiana was my seventh stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Lonny Rabalais, an independent researcher.

On the 8th of April, 2008 I accompanied Lonny into the bayous of South-Central Louisiana. Lonny showed me several locations where he and his friends had heard vocalizations, woodknocks and found stick structures and possible footprints.

While checking out one site for a recently found branch break we came upon a possible teepee stick structure.

It was a beautiful spring day, the foliage on the trees was fully out and the birds were singing.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Lonny!

Missouri – 48 in ’08

Missouri was my sixth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Ron Boles, BFRO_Missouri Investigator.

On the 21st of March, 2008 I accompanied Ron to a landowners home situated in a wooded holler situated in the Ozark Mountains of Southern Missouri. Ron showed me a possible stick structure and we walked through the woods as it was gradually getting dark. Ron had recently found a 16″ footprint up one of the draws close to the house and he had heard several distant whoops.

I spoke with the lady who lived on the property and she talked about how some animal had taken most of her geese, ducks and chickens over the past year. Her husland, who is hard of hearing, had been startled by a bellow close to the house and she has heard numerous howls and whoops.

The weather was clear and breezy.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Ron!

Tennessee – 48 in ’08

Tennessee was my fifth stop squatchin’ in all 48 contiguous states in 2008. I was invited to go squatchin’ with Janice Carter and Tom Shirley. Their website is Bigfoot Reference Guide.

On the 14th of March, 2008 we were in a wooded area of Tennessee. We spent several hours in an area that has a history of footprints, vocalizations and a sighting.

The weather was rainy and the woods was fairly quiet. Although we neither heard nor saw anything unusual it was still great to meet new people and to enjoy the great outdoors.

Thanks for allowing me to tag along Janice and Tom!
