An In-between Trip in June

I am not sure if you are aware that I have several spots I go to investigate.  In my books you can't have too many.  LOL  I need to keep my eyes shut while driving or going with fellow investigators.  This one location happens to be one of my favorite spots.  It is called Central Colorado.  This is not one of my own locations but a friend's who has been going there for over 6 years.  He is gracious to share this place with me.  Which I am grateful.  It is where I camped for the first time while investigating.  This location is where I saw a brown 7 foot female Bigfoot a couple of years ago.  Oh!  The stories from this place!!!  I will try to share some more when I am unable to go to Roo's Place.  This place never lets me down.  A so-so camping trip there probably would be one many would die for.  I went there in-between 2 of my Roo's Place camping trips in June.  This place where I will not bring Roo.  Dogs have been killed there.  So I will not risk Roo or make the group there upset with me for taking her.  So I left her home with family.

We arrived there on Friday.  Set up camp and made our presence known to the group.  I told the guys I will sleep in the hot seat.  Usually if things are going to happen then that is the spot.  I will mention that I did put my cot about 1 1/2 feet from the wall of the tent.  What makes this tent interesting is that it is one of those outfitter's tent that does not have a floor and we do not tie down the bottom edges of the tent.  We do that on purpose.  This trip was the perfect example of why we do this.  I will go on record and state that I did sleep in the same spot on Saturday night, (I did place my camp chair between me and the wall of the tent though).   LOL  Also I would like to point out that in the past I was known for sleeping in the middle of tents for a reason.  Since being touched on the shoulder 2 years ago and this weekend kind of makes this mute and pointless for me.  If it happens, it happens.  My heart may need to pulled back into my chest again but I have moved on about worrying about being touched at night while sleeping. 

I had a hard time sleeping Friday night.  Stuff was being tossed at the sides of the tent.  Which is common to happen here at Central Colorado.  Not on the top of the tent but the sides by our heads.  I had finally fallen asleep with my back to the side of the tent.  Evidently I was talking in my sleep.  One of the guys said I had been talking a little bit before anything started to happen to me.  I don't remember that part except there was 3 Bigfoots in my dream.  Later when I was in that state where you are awake but you feel like its in a dream is when it happened.  I was laying there and I felt something touch the top of my head.  I had just the top of my head sticking out of my sleeping bag.  Then I felt 2 fingers move on my head and then pulled my hair!  I did a startled yelp and sat up.  I touched my head and found the strand of hair that was pulled out of my braid.  I told the guys that something touched my head and pulled my hair.  Then I showed them.  I did ask if I screamed but they said no.  It was a yelp and maybe a little high pitched.  LOL  Once I calmed down I laid back down.  We were all going back to sleep when something touched my back which was facing the tent!  I jumped up and told my husband to change places.  He did not want to.  So I just laid in my cot until it was light out and then fell back to sleep.

Whoever or whatever did this had to have long arms to reach me.  I was 1 1/2 feet away from the side of the tent the first time and then over 2 feet away the second time.  None of the guys were touched.  Only me.  I will admit that while this was happening I would not have minded if it was them and not me.  LOL

So my journey continues with many exciting and unexpected things.  Some maybe not what I would have preferred though.  Hopefully I will be camping at Roo's Place next weekend.  If not then I will share another story.  Maybe the first time camping at Central Colorado.  Hmmm...

SQUATCH ON my friends...

The 4th at Roo's Place

Not Things

As I sit here thinking of my 4th of July weekend at Roo's Place, all I can think of is how my journey has blessed me with some good friends.  One such friend is Harriett McFeely.  She and her husband Dick had visited us at Roo's Place last Labor Day weekend.  My, how things have changed in such a short time.  Her husband Dick who saw eye shine for the first time there has recently passed away.  It was good to see her and share my time with her.  Let me tell you how we met.  LOL  It is always amazing how friends first meet:

I had gone to a Bigfoot Conference in 2014 in Honobia, Oklahoma.  Two of my fellow Sasquatch Investigators were speaking there and I had wanted to go and be there for it.  While there this older lady had approached me and introduced herself.  I then had talked to her for a few minutes.  I thought what a nice lady.  She then came up to me another time and wanted to ask me a question.  I told her "sure".  Harriett then asked if she could hire me to take her out Bigfooting.  I was very surprised.  I was not expecting that.  I told her "no" but I would love to take her out some time in Colorado.  I explained to her that this was a labor of love I was doing and I won't take her money.  So I invited her to a woman's campout in later on in the year I was hosting in Colorado for a few friends.  She was so excited and drove all by herself to Colorado to the campout.  That was how our friendship had started.  I now have a wonderful friend who is brave, curious and intelligent.

I had talked to Harriett and invited her out to Roo's Place for the 4th of July weekend.  She came and stayed with us for the weekend there.  It was a great time.

I have stated in my earlier posts how we don't have things going on every time we go.  This weekend was one of those.  I did have something walk up to the tent right by my head and stand there.  Also we had small pebbles and cones thrown at the tent all night long on Friday night.  Other than that not much else.

We had rain the whole weekend.  Only on Monday, July 4th did we have clear skies.  So it was a very wet and cool weekend.  I think everyone including our forest friends stayed out of the rain.  It was a weekend of friendship and enjoying nature while trying to keep dry.

I was able to take Harriett out on Saturday morning before it started to rain again to show her how to tell the difference between naturally made tree structures and purposely made tree structures.  That to me is very important because if you don't know the difference then everything is Bigfoot related.  Which in fact it is the opposite.  It is a naturally made tree structure until you cannot figure out how it was done AND maybe it can be Bigfoot related.  That is a big difference.

So my friends I am sorry there is not much in regards to our forest friends in this post but I will have times where there is not much.  I would like to dedicate 2016 year to Dick McFeely here at Roo's Place.  Before he had passed away he was so excited about seeing eye shine here at Roo's Place.  He had shared this "Aha" moment with all until he died.

So my friends until we meet again...
