Hunting Sasquatch


So, I’m planing out my upcoming backpacking trip. I traced a GPX file off a forestry map, and imported it into Google Earth to get a feel for the terrain.

Google Earth is full of useful information.

Today, I learned that my planned route (the light blue line) passes within a mile or so of a recent Bigfoot sighting. (the orange dot). Evidently, less than a year ago, some people ran into a bigfoot in the same part of the woods that I’m planning to hike in!

It was around 7 1/2 foot tall and weighed around 450 pounds. It was covered in stringy brown hair and had an ape like appearance. The witnesses did see the eyes. They had no whites to them and appeared large and black with no glow to them. At first no odor was present, but within a few seconds they smelled a sour, sweaty aroma. The arms came to within 2 inches of the creatures knees.

Fortunately, I do not believe in the existence of Bigfoot/Sasquatch type creatures, so I think I will be safe.

  1. Off by a year. I was up there in the spring of 2006.

    I’m a foot too short, but meet most of the other criteria. Hopefully not the “sour, sweaty aroma” though.
