What is it about marbles?

I took my dog Roo hiking at my special spot about a week ago.  I take her with me when I go down into the creek area.  I like to check several spots along the creek for prints.  I have found in the past prints during winter time.  So when it is too slippery and icy up by the cliffs I go down to the creek area.  There seems to be about 3 miles of the creek where I find most of my prints.  This morning I checked some areas along the creek that I don't check so closely but had decided to take some pictures of the ice on the creek before it melted away.  I came  across a couple of prints that made me think Bigfoot but I have some reservations.  I will share them so you can look at them.  One had someone stepped on it but missed the toes.  LOL  The toes were wide and big.  The span was about 6-7 inches across.  Much bigger than a bear and straight across like you would expect for a Bigfoot not a human.  The other was a slid mark and I could see no treds from a boot.  It looked like toes marks.  Plus there was some mud that was thrown to the right of the slid mark like the toes had grabbed the mud and when it picked up its foot the mud was released to the right much like a bare foot would do versus a booted foot. 

These were the only prints I found on this day.  I was excited by my finds.  They really stretched my knowledge and made me think.

So about 1 1/2 hours later I decided to walk back to leave.  I prefer to go early in the morning because I seemed to find more stuff when I do.   Roo was getting tired and I wanted to check my pictures when I got home.

Guess what I found on the trail?  A white marble!!!  It was not there 1 1/2 hours ago.  

This is something new for this spot.  The whole marble sharing at this location was always up by the cliff area and also at another location called Roo's Place.  Not here down by the creek.    

FYI-A couple of weekends before when I was in there with Roo, it was a difficult time for Roo.  She was nervous and indicating that there were Bigfoots close by.   In fact we smelled the skunky dead smell as soon as we started on the trail.  We heard knocks, some type of calls (not sure how to describe them) and we had some rocks thrown at us.  The last rock was about 4 inches long, white and landed about 10 feet to my right as we left the tree line. Lets just say Roo was very happy to leave that morning.

A bit of history:

I have been at this location since 2011.  I am a known person but I was not at this location much last year.  Due to many reasons including my health and spending time with my family.  So I had decided for 2018 I was going to make an effort to be at this location as much as possible.  This place holds a special place in my heart.  I had my first sighting, whoop, whistles, grunt, growls and prints at this location.  I also had found a massive shelter in 2012 up by the cliffs.  Plus I had learned to gift and share glyphs.  One of my favorite memories was being whooped in as I climbed up towards the cliffs.  They were ahead of me and far enough ahead in the trees that I could hear them whooping but not see them.  This location is a wonderful spot and I am quite protective of it.  You are welcome to go back and read my early posts about this place.

So why the rock throwing and the marble?

They know who I am.  I always announce myself when out exploring.  I do my whistle and my calls.  Much like someone ringing a doorbell when visiting.  I figure I am the one visiting and need to let them know I am there.  Plus if you go enough they will recognize you when you have the same routine.  I know that I haven't been in there as much as before so it is what I would call getting reacquainted time.  The smell, calls and rock throwing was to gauge my reactions to see if I am still the same and also to remind Roo of who lives there.  So when I went back and found the prints, it was letting me know they are still there.  By using the marbles I feel was their way to let me know they are there and know who I am.  I know there will be many who may scoff at this but I don't really mind or care because I am the one who has history with this group.  I have many memories both full of wonder and some scary ones.  I am not one to think everything is Bigfoot but some of the stuff does point to them because of what I have experienced, seen and found.  I am secure in what I know.  What I find interesting is when good friends who I trust who are experiencing the same things or similar experiences.  That points to me that I am on the right track.

So what will happen next?

2017 at Roo's Place-We never know what to expect there!

We started our camping season at Roo's Place at the end of May.  Not much really happened but we have found that May and early June seems to be quieter there.  It tends to storm quite a bit during this time of year.  Even though it was quiet it was good to start our camping season at Roo's Place.

The next time we went camping at Roo's Place was in June. 
It was a little different. 

I had decided to go camping with just Roo and myself.  At the last minute I grabbed the camping gear Saturday morning and went up.  Once there I did my normal routine.  Every time I camp there I always do this same routine-Whistle, whoop and then one of my special calls.  I figure it is my way of ringing the front door to let them know I am visiting.  What I find interesting-Roo is fine until I do this and then she wants to get back into the car or hide in the tent.  LOL 

Then I had set up camp.  Once I was done I sat down to do some reading.  In the past when I would do this some interesting things would happen.  This time was no different.  I sat down close to the tent facing it under the giant pine tree that I love.  While reading I noticed that Roo was very restless and kept moving and positioning herself after looking into the tree line several times.   She would look at a certain spot and then move herself to be between me and what she looked at.  At this point I figured we may have a visitor.  I told her to lay down and relax.  Except she wouldn't relax.  She kept watching the trees.  Then she was watching to my right very intently.  I kept reading.  Then Roo got up and laid to my right, next to my right foot.   I would say a couple of minutes later to my right as I was reading my book, out of the corner of my eye I saw a large black upright shape race by!.  About 15-20 feet away!!  I did not hear it until it went by me.  It was quick and then it was gone.  Roo jumped up and I grabbed her and told her to sit down.  I sat there until my heart quit racing.  At this point I realized it was probably gone because Roo was more relaxed and not watching the trees.  So I decided to keep reading.  A while later Roo got up and sat to my left almost behind me watching the trees again.  Then I began to hear some primate sounds much like holler monkeys and also some that sounded like chimps when they are loud.  At this point I was nervous.  Trying to decide what to do.  It was just Roo and me.  If we had not had the run-by then I would not be so worried.   I walked back up to the forest road and walked until I had enough bars to text Jon.  I asked him to come camping.  I wasn't going to leave but wanted Jon there with me.  If he did not come then I had decided that Roo and I would sleep in the car.  Jon did text me back and said he would be there in a few hours.  So I had the rest of the afternoon to myself.  So I did some exploring around the ravine on the north part of the campsite.  I did notice how one of the tree breaks was pointing to a giant X.  I had not noticed that before.  I also looked more carefully at another structure and realized that from the angle of the break, it could not have been broken by another tree.  Plus I also noticed that many of the structures here at this location had a tree break either as part of the structure or was very close to it.  I will keep an eye open to see if this can be found at other locations.  

 This tree break is not completely broken but bent so that the tree is still alive.

As you can see the break is pointing to this giant X.

This structure is very close to the tree break that is pointing to the giant X.

What a weekend!  It seems like when I relax and start to read, I have activity.  Another detail is that Jon is not there.  Either he is off exploring or haven't arrived yet.

We had invited some friends to come for the long July 4th weekend.  I had gone up early with Jon and one friend.  I got there first.  The first thing I noticed was Roo's collapsible water dish was in the middle of the pathway to the campsite.  That was strange.  It should have been in our camping equipment.  If not there it would have been by the pine tree where we kept her bowls while camping.  I must have forgotten to pack it away when we left about 10 days before.  Side note-I always pack her stuff in her own duffle bag.  It should have not been there on the pathway. 
After taking pictures and checking all around the campsite, I decided to keep the bowl there so Jon could see it when he arrived.  

Later on, Jon and our friend Paco went to do some exploring and had found a print on an ant hill. 
It was already getting erased by the ants but we could see the toes in the print.

It was hard to see in our Colorado soil which is decomposing granite. 
We were very lucky to find this print.

The next day when my Nebraska friends came...

They slept in my tent with Roo and I.  My daughters had set up a tent to the right of the my tent and we have never set one there before.  It was not too far from where the year before I had the quarter-sized rock thrown at me that my daughter saw come out of the trees towards me and hit my chair I was sitting in.  You can read that in one of my earlier post from 2016 year.  Jon's tent was set apart and back from us.  There were trees all around us and a massive one between my tent and my daughters' tent. 

Later that night, I had decided to go into the tent to go to sleep.  Roo is my shadow and was coming with me.  Jon, my daughters, and Harriett were already in their tents.  Roo was acting weird that whole evening, anxiously looking at certain points around us.  I knew we had some visitors that probably came in for a peek.  We haven't had this many with us before and there were a lot of women.  As I approached the tent, Roo was not too keen to come with me and then made a weird whimper.  I happened to see something large upright move from the back of my tent over to the back of my daughters' tent.  What was interesting was that one of the my Nebraska friends was close by and saw it move too.  

 When Jon and my daughters left the next day it was just the 4 women there with Roo.  We did some exploring and I showed them some cool things that I knew they wanted to see.  At night we had some eye shine and small rocks thrown at me.  I had set up my screen tent for us to sit in because the black flies were bad.  I warned them that they like to throw stuff at me.  So off and on all evening every night a small rock or small pine cone would hit the screen right by my head.  LOL  We all laughed about it.

Then the last night...

We stayed up late except for Harriett.  She can't stay awake past 9:00 pm.  We had some eye shine behind us then a few minutes later Connie saw an arm with long hair put something that was also dark in a branch much higher than us.  Her impression it was a baby.  Then we talked and laughed.  Around 1:30 am we could hear some whistling coming from the bottom of the ravine in the direction where I had heard rhythmic knocking 2 summers ago.  We heard it come up and we were wondering what bird besides an owl would be out and whistling at 1:30 in the morning?!?  We could tell it stop but was still whistling.  Then we realized it was not a bird and it whistling my tune!  This tune is my special tune I do when I go there.  I use this tune to announce myself everywhere I go squatching.  I just never heard it coming from something else!  I decided to take a picture of Roo while the whistling was going on.  She just sat there and watched much like she did when we had the rhythmic knocking.  I then decided to try to record part of the whistling but it stopped as soon as I turned my camera to record and faced it to where it was coming from.  This lasted for about 4-5 minutes.  

I do want to say that when I had first got to the campsite that weekend, Roo did something she had never done before.  EVER!  She charged something that was in the trees/brushes.  I could not see what it was.  I quickly called her back.  I am not sure what it was.  I did not see or hear anything run off like a bear or mountain lion or deer.  I told her not to do that again just in case it was a Bigfoot.  I had done my whistles and calls several minutes before and had looked around for prints because I was wondering about how Roo's bowl ended up on the pathway.  This is one of many things that makes this place interesting.

I love Roo's Place.  LOL  I never am sure what and could happen when I camp there.

The last 2017 camping trip I will be talking about happened in September.  We had invited some friends from Utah.  They had camped with us a couple of years before and wanted to come and camp with us again.  They brought their young adult son with them.  It was a fun time.  Again we had eye shine watching us and Roo letting us know when they came too close.  We took them over on the other side of the ravine where there are some structures and also where we heard the rhythmic knocking 2 summers ago.  Rob had found a 13 inch print and then I spotted what at first I thought was a really weird foot print.  Then I realized it was a knuckle print!  In my picture I put my hand above it without touching the ground to show how similar it was to my knuckle.  In reality it was much bigger than my hand.

Then I found a 13 inch print almost exactly where I had heard the whistling in July.

When I had planned this weekend with Maida, I told her to bring a book to read.  That I was going to send the guys off while we read and see what happens.  Well...we did this and...

I was facing the ravine where I found that 13 inch print.  So we sat and read.  After a while Roo got restless and started to look around.  I nudged Maida and told her to keep reading but watch from the side of her eyes for movement.  I got Roo to laid back down but she was watching the tree line again.  In fact she was watching to the right of Maida.  I glanced up and saw a black upright figure watching us.  It was right next to a tree.  I told Maida what I saw and she was so upset that she could not see it unless she turned her head.  It quickly left and then we talked for a while.  We waited a while before going over there.  From what we can figure it was about 40 yards away and about 7 feet tall.  The photo is where I saw the figure.  No, there is not one in the picture.  It was taken after it had left.

Remember the marble thing we had going on at Roo's Place? 
We did not receive any in the 2017 year but...

We had something interesting.  My daughter Jennifer had started to go camping with us.  She says she is not really interested but she had seen the rock fly out of the tree line and hit my chair.  She had heard some howls one night that Jon and I did not hear.  She said it was not a wolf or coyote.  It was deep and very long.  It kept going on and on.  She said Roo got up and was listening to it too.  She had seen the structures which without me saying anything said they look purposely made.  She had made a glyph the summer of 2016 where we had found an asterisk.  During the summer of 2016, I  had some exchanges of glyphs.  Which you can read in my earlier posts.  Nothing happened after Jennifer had made the glyph in 2016 but I always checked it when I went to Roo's Place.  You never know.  She had made a triangle and over time you can tell it had been moved a little from weather and deer but it was still there.  So the weekend we had our friends from Utah visit, something was added next to Jennifer's glyph.  You will see in the picture the new glyph.   It is something I have never seen before...

 It was to the right of Jennifer's triangle.
I also took a close up of the glyph. 
See how careful it was to put it together? 
This was purposely made!  It was not there a month ago.

What do you think?

I never know what to expect at Roo's Place.  There are several points that I have learned from Roo's Place:
  • Don't expect anything.  Go to enjoy camping and being out in the forest.
  • For some reason they are tolerant of Roo.  They scare her and make her uneasy but they haven't tried to hurt her.  I think they let her know who is in charge.  We do not allow her to bark or chase wildlife.  
  • They seemed to be curious of people we bring.  Especially women.
  • They are curious-several times at night once we are in our tent when some of us are asleep, we have had our containers opened, they have touched utensils that are hanging up (we could hear them doing this), after a storm trying to peek in the tent (that is in one of my earlier post), them looking in our cars (hand prints on windows) and a lit up balloon licked.
  • They will approach the campsite when we are there.  Especially when I am alone and occupied such as reading.
  • Don't try to go after them or react.
  • Our mindset is go there to camp and if they want to visit they are welcome to come without fear of us trying to trick them or get something from them.  I am a visitor in their home and will respect their right to be there.
  • I truly feel that the key with our forest friends is not the technology or tricking them or trying to hurt them but to establish a mutual respect where they may be curious about the weird hairless people without fear.  I want nothing from them.  I just want to learn more about them.  This takes time and patience.  Not many are willing to do this but I feel this is the key.  
I have another post I will be doing and you won't believe it has to do with marbles!  I will share that next time.

SQUATCH ON !  My friends!!!!

Let Me Tell You a Bigfoot Story that Happened in Nebraska...YES! Nebraska

A couple of 17 year old young men went to go do some fishing and camping one night last year.  What happened this night has changed their whole world of what is in the woods.  In fact they haven't been back except for Jake who went a few months ago to tell and show where it happened.  No one believed them until Harriett, my friend, who went to meet and hear his story.

The young men decided to go to a local privately owned park to fish and camp in August of last year.  You have to have a key to get into this park.  There are ponds and camp sites scattered throughout the park.  This park is directly next to the Platte River.   This is in the middle of the state.  Right in the middle of the farming community.  As they approached the pond to fish they saw some eye shine that was green watching them from across the pond.

They could tell it was upright and very BIG.  The upright figure was huge and very dark.  It had glowing green eyes.  This big upright figure picked up a wooden spool that is found throughout this park and threw it into the pond.  The spool was 5 feet across and 3 1/2 feet tall.   It weighed about 200-300 pounds!
It scared the young men so much that they left the park.  This was not their first time there and had been there before.  They did not even stay to camp.

So what do young men do when they get scared by something?  Go back and check out what scared them

So Jake went back to see what had happened the night before was really real.  He went to the other side of the pond where the Bigfoot was seen.  He started to walk up to the edge of where he knew it was seen the night before and sees one standing by the trees in front of the embankment leading to the edge of the pond! 
(I have Harriett standing where he saw it the next day)
Jake has not been back until he went there with Harriett a few months ago.  He had told family and friends but no one believed him.  I have walked this location and I believe him.  This was a tough way to go from 0 to total believer for Jake and his friend.

I think someone forgot to tell Bigfoot that there are no Bigfoot in Nebraska except in a couple of areas.  What I am finding is that there are many more than most think.  I will be talking about the farm in Nebraska that has Bigfoot activity.  In fact I will be making 2 posts on this amazing farm.

Remember: Never to say never in regards to our hairy friends.  They seemed to have no problems living in Nebraska.  They have adapted very well.  The food is good, the water clean and room to wander.  A perfect place for them. 

So my friends:

1954 Plum Creek Monster in Colorado

Last fall I had planned and then had taken the children in my school program on our annual "Looking for Bigfoot" field trip to a new location.  This field trip was a bit different because I had found a park close to where there was a report of the 1954 Plum Creek Monster.  In fact there are a couple of BFRO reports within 7-10 miles of this location.  I had stumbled upon a video about the Plum Creek Monster while at the local library looking at urban legends and anything unusual in my county.  I loved the video.  Then I looked up the original article and others talking about the monster.  I thought this was a good way to talk about some of the history of our county and about Bigfoot.  Before the field trip day, I went in and explored the location a couple of times and then went down stream about 4 miles and found some old tracks coming out of Plum Creek! 

On our "Looking for Bigfoot" field trip day, I had brought in a casting from Missouri.  Also I had made a 8 ft tall Bigfoot silhouette and some outlines of a 19 inch and 17 inch prints to show the children the scale of Bigfoot and also a visual of the size of my prints.  Then I showed them how hard it was to try to take a picture of anything that moves in the woods.  That by the time you turn on the camera, put it to your face and focus, either the subject that was seen is gone or is blurry or in the shadows.  I also talked about the Plum Creek Monster.  Then we went to the creek location.  I was hoping for us to find prints there but we did not see or hear anything.  It turned out to be a wonderful cold day exploring the woods and creek while learning to whoop and look at structures. 

I would like to talk a little about the Plum Creek Monster with you like I did with the children.  You see the Denver News and I do not agree on this story.  The newspaper called it a hoax and I do not.  I think those ranch hands did see something.  I will explain more.

Back in 1954, on one of the ranches on Plum Creek, some ranch hands had reportedly seen a black hairy creature with green glowing eyes that was about 8 feet tall waving a chicken.  It Scared them.  When the sheriff and others came to investigate there was 14 inch prints found with toes.  Days later there was another report saying others had seen it too.  Pretty soon there were many people going to the ranch looking for this creature.  We are talking about a couple thousand people tramping through the ranch and surrounding area.  This was in a rural county south of Denver.  It was a big thing to happen in Douglas County.  Then the under-sheriff reported in the newspaper that there was no monster and he knew who did it.  He then said he talked with the person and told him not to do this again.

I can see where the Denver newspaper a few years ago called this a hoax because:
  1. The under-sheriff said it was a hoax.
  2. The person who wrote the Denver article saying it was a hoax had no knowledge or knew the history of Bigfoot.

Let me point out a couple of things that may indicate that this may have actually happened:
  • This was before the Gimlin-Patterson Film (1967) or the hype from the big feet found at a logging location in northern California (1959).
  • This was before Internet and common knowledge that we now have about Bigfoot.  We are reading and hearing about this 1954 creature with our 2017 eyes/knowledge.  There was no previous local knowledge of Bigfoot in Douglas County or the Denver area.
  • 14 inch prints found with toes. 
  • It was the under-sheriff who made the announcement that it was a hoax and knew who did it.  This was big news at the time and why would the under-sheriff and not the sheriff make this announcement?  You would think the sheriff would have made the announcement since this was so sensational and really big news.  It doesn't sound right.  I am thinking that the sheriff did not want to get caught lying to the public just in case this creature came back.
  • The creature had green glowing eyes.  

I think there was a Sasquatch raiding a rancher's chicken coop one night in 1954.

A Report out of Nebraska

Last weekend at this time I had just finished up my presentation at the Nebraska Bigfoot Conference in Hastings, Nebraska.  Even though it was in the morning I was still a little shell shock at how many people were at the conference.  I WAS HOPING TO HAVE AT LEAST 100 PEOPLE FOR BOTH FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY!  We ended up with at least 650+ people.  We kept having to add chairs to our room.

What was my impression of the conference?  This beautiful state is filled with wonderful people who are interested in Bigfoot.  Either from some type of interaction or from just an interest or heard stories shared from family and friends.  I had so much fun meeting and getting to know people there.  One young man who was about 5 years old stood out.  His name is Lane and he had told me he had a Bigfoot birthday party this year.  He said he wants to invite me to his next birthday.  I hope he does and if I am in Nebraska I plan on going.

I did have many people talk to me about some type of Bigfoot activity they had experienced.  Two really grabbed my attention.  Both of them had pictures to go along with the story.  One I have to be patient because we have to get permission from the landowner and it may take a while.  The other was Tammy.  She showed me a structure.  Just looking at it may not seem like it is something but...
then I asked her I think 3 questions.  After she answered them I looked even more closely at the picture.  I think I surprised her when I asked if I could go see it the next day.  Thank goodness I was staying for an extra day or it was going to be a long late drive back to Colorado.

My picture of the structure:

What do you think of it?  At first glanced it doesn't really seemed like anything but...

I have seen something like this at one of my locations only it had broke in the middle.  I was interested in the picture because of that but when I had asked her several questions I knew I wanted to go see it.  I surprised her with my interest because she had shown this to others but I was the only one that wanted to go see it.  After visiting the location and talking with her about some activity, I knew I wanted to investigate more.  Let me tell you some things about this structure that may point to it being Bigfoot related.

The tree is about 30-40 years old.  The arch is 10'5" tall and 9'6" wide.  The top of the tree that is in the ground is deeper than 4".  The tree is twisted and one branch grew down and around the arch which made it look like a snow break until you look closely and see it is a branch and not part of the truck of the tree.

Tammy had a Horticulturist look at her pictures.  After looking at the pictures closely she said it was manipulated and not naturally made because of these factors:

  • It would be more asymmetrical from wind or snow.  So the formation was too vertical on both sides.
  • Top appeared to be buried straight and deep into the ground with the shoots growing out from the surrounding soil.
  • The tree is very stressed due to the twisting and binding.  It is killing the tree which conflicts with its natural inclination towards surviving.
  • Shading from other trees is not a factor since there are no trees close enough for it to seek out alternative growth.
  • The tree base is directly behind the tree and opposite to the direction of the buried top.  This is not a natural growth pattern of a willow seeking water.
We know that Native Americans used trees as trail markers but the tree is only 30-40 years old.  So that is not a factor on how it was manipulated by man.  This is in a pasture of a farm for live stock so it is not part of a shelter belt.  So this will factor out the farmer. 


So I asked Tammy some questions about the previous owners and themselves.  There are indications from her answers this may be Bigfoot related.  The location of the farm to rivers, creeks and the remoteness is one possibility and some weird things that have happened may point to a group coming to this farm.  During my presentation I had talked briefly about marbles.  At this farm this is happening too along with pieces of mirrors and feathers.

If you hear people scoff about Nebraska not being squatchy enough for Bigfoot and are only in a couple areas then they have not looked closely.  I have changed my stance on this when I started to look more closely at Nebraska.  There are strong indications that my original thinking and of many others are wrong.  Very wrong.  I have learned over years that what I assume of many things about Bigfoot is wrong and usually the opposite of what I was assuming.  You would have thought I would have learned from this but no.  I am still learning.  LOL  I have to remember that they are primates who are highly adaptable.  What does Nebraska have that they would adapt to?  Water-there are many rivers and creeks that crisscross the state; Food-farms and lots of deer; places to hide-there are places for them to hide, maybe not what we traditionally think of but there are places; Not many people-there are wide open spaces with farmland.  Plus people don't traditionally talk about stuff like this with others.  Since Bigfoot is considered not real, any stories or reports will not be taken seriously.  Which helps Bigfoot.

So if you want to continue not to believe they have a strong presence in Nebraska and I also suspect Kansas then go ahead and continue.  Bigfoot has no problem with you having this stance.  To the ones who have had Bigfoot experiences or activity in Nebraska, I believe you because what I have been finding does support what you have had happened.

NEVER SAY NEVER in regards to Bigfoot.

So my friends


The Nebraska Bigfoot Conference in Hastings

February 17 & 18, 2017 there was a Bigfoot conference in Nebraska.  Harriett McFeely was the person who dream and then made this happen.  She had been scoffed at, laughed at and many tried to discouraged her to not have the conference.  Well, guess what?  We had at least 250 people on Friday night and well over 400 people on Saturday.  That was at least 650 people!  In Nebraska!

Where there is a will there is a way.  In this case a wonderful woman who had a dream and made it happen.  Now we have the community and others approaching us for next year.  Yes, we are having another one next year.  We are already planning it.  Just one thing that is a slight problem-we need to find a venue big enough for us.  LOL

So look at the link to see some pictures.  The pictures and video was from a reporter from the newspaper in Omaha.  We had several reporters there.

Guess what?

There are Bigfoot in Nebraska and there is a lot of interest from the locals too.  I am getting ready to write another post for this blog from a woman who may have Bigfoot activity on her farm.  You will want to read it.  I am still amazed about it.

So my friends

Bigfoot on Native American Reservation in Nebraska

Some friends and I were invited to go to a Native American reservation this weekend in Nebraska.  I got off of work a little bit early to drive to there on Friday so I could spend all of my Saturday there.  It was a long tiring drive but well worth the trip.  It is always a pleasure to see Harriett.  Then you add the new friends I made this weekend and it was even more enjoyable.  Meeting Jimmy Lee, Joyce, Barry, DW and Richard was wonderful. Whenever I can expand my circle of Bigfoot friends it is always fun and makes my journey of discovery even more endearing.

Let me tell you of our weekend:

Harriett, Jimmy Lee and I went to the Lincoln area to meet up with Joyce and she drove us to Macy to meet up with Barry and DW on the reservation.  We had a cabin reserved there for Saturday night.  Barry, Richard and DW had made plans with the rest of their group to take us out to explore their active Bigfoot areas.  There was even a night walk planned for 1:00 am. 

During the day they took us down by the Missouri River where there has been a lot of Bigfoot activity.  We found some structures and maybe a half print. 
What was interesting with the arch was the top of the tree was rammed into the ground.  In fact all three branches of different lengths were rammed in.  I have never seen this before.  Very, very interesting.  And it was by a couple of other structures.

Then we went back to the cabins.  Then we went out to eat.  We got back later and some of us (me especially) went into our cabin and slept for a couple of hours before the late night walk.  I was still very tired from the drive and lack of sleep.  For me to chose sleep over talking Bigfoot means I was exhausted.  I wanted to be ready at 1:00 am and then still be able to drive home on Sunday.

I am going to say that my day time investigations are fun and intriguing but the real fun is the night time investigations in an active Bigfoot area.  The group there did not disappoint me.  Now I want to go out here in Colorado but there is over 6 feet of snow and no way to get in there.  LOL  The whole thing of going out exploring with no lights on and with limited vision gets your adrenaline going.  Especially when things start to happen.

We were divided into 2 groups.  Young sweet Jimmy Lee and I went with DW and George.  They were taking us to a spot that is haunted AND an active Bigfoot location.  COOL!  I was ready.  Jimmy Lee who has never been out before was a bit nervous but ready to go.  I think I was not what the men were expecting when they knew that 4 women were coming.  I know Harriett told them that I have been out in the field and have been actively investigating here in Colorado and other states but I don't think they were prepared for how much I knew and how to act.  My calm presence helped Jimmy Lee and also helped her to move pass her fear.  I feel lucky to now call her my friend and plan on taking her out in the future there in Nebraska and here in Colorado.  She got a taste and now is hooked.  LOL

I will tell you that I do have fear out there but I have learned to control it and to stand my ground when I can.  Running and freaking out will have you lose out on an opportunity and the experience if you let it rule you.  I just stand my ground and swallow my fear.  This night though I wasn't fearful.  But my adrenaline was in high gear and made me wish it was warmer and no snow in Colorado.  I want more. 

Usually when I am in a group especially when it is a new location for me, I try to separate myself from the group a little and make my presence know in a low key but friendly way to let the group there know I am aware of them but respectful.  Any location I go to I use my special whistle along with my voice and whoops.  At this location I don't think whistling has been used before and it definitely attracted their attention. 

The guys announced us and introduced Jimmy Lee and I.  When I had walked away from the group and did my whistle there was movement and sounds indicating they were coming towards me.  After I heard some noises that were not quite whoops but not growls, more like a soft huffs, I called Jimmy Lee to me so she can experience the sounds and movements.  She came over and stood there with me and we both watched the shadows moving around and hearing I am thinking 3 with 2  in front of us and one behind us.  At one point she grabbed my hand but I was proud of her.  She stood her ground with me and experienced all that was going on.  Then we walked closer to the guys.

I asked for some eye shine and I saw several come on and off.  I was able to show Jimmy Lee where they were and how to move around a little to try to see more.  They were moving around and flashing quick eye shine towards us.  At one point I wanted to go down into the area where the eye shine was so I asked the group if they were OK for me to walked down there.  As soon as I took a step down, a medium sized branch was thrown towards me and landed just to the left of me right by the tree line.  I backed off and then walked some more back where I started and then walked over past where the guys were.  Then I did my talking, whooping and whistling.  When I saw more eye shine I was able to show everyone where they were.  Jimmy Lee watched and would follow me when I wanted her with me.  Then I went down the road into where the eye shine was.  I did not go too far but was hoping to get to the curve and go back behind where the eye shine was seen but I think they figured out where I wanted to go.  So I stopped and whistled and talked.  Jimmy Lee followed me.  The guys were behind us and not as far down as we were.  Then there was a dark tall shape that moved towards us with eye shine.  At that point I realized I should not moved further down, closer to the curve so I just stood there.  Jimmy Lee stood with me.  The others moved back up and stood by the car.  We watched the eye shine and then saw 2 other sets go off and on.  One was showing red the whole time and the other went green and white.  At this point I thought it was an impasse and I should be the one to move back up.  As we moved back up we had one right up on the road to our left.  It was close and was showing very bright green eye shine!  We saw it blink and you can tell it was moving its head to watch all of us.  It just stood there and did not leave.  Jimmy Lee was so excited to see it.  As soon as I approached it, it moved and we did not see the eye shine again.  We heard a howl off in the distance and then the coyotes started up.  The guys wanted to take us to another location so we got back into the car and left.  This was a perfect experience to show how eye shine looks and how they use it.  For them to use it with 2 strangers there was impressive to me.  I think being female and respectful but approachable may have made them curious of the 2 females that knew they were there and knew what their eye shine was.  I also think the whistle helped too.

We did not have any more experiences but that was OK because the first location was great.  The other group did not have anything happen.  But you should expect that this will happen.  We were lucky that the group was where we were.

I will make a disclaimer here and say we did not have our flashlights or head lamps on so there was no reflections.  I walk around with no lights on.  If you don't believe me you can ask the ones who have gone out with me before.  Also we were below the skyline.  Plus the eye shine did not stay in one spot but moved around.  Several times we were able to see 2-3 sets at the same time.  The bright green eye shine by the road we saw blinked.  I also saw the dark shape with the eye shine move its eyes around and blink.  We were in a deserted location with no one else around.  What else could it be?

So when Barry asked me if I want to come back, guess what my answer was?


This is another example of how an active Bigfoot location will make someone go from wondering to believer with one experience.  Jimmy Lee has no doubt now.  Locations like this will do it without someone trying to convince.  Its better this way.

So my friends:
