Hello,

Grace G. from Georgia here. I have been reading this site for many years, and have read all of the information with great interest.

I have no personal experiences to report, but I do have a scientific interest/curiosity in the subject. I see no reason to disbelieve that an undocumented species of ...something...lives among us. I do keep my eyes open when driving through our forested areas. Ya never know.

I have a Masters in Education and work in the teaching field.

Thanks for your excellent site!
Grace

Hi everyone, My name is Elijah, I have hunted and fished all my life in the mountains and forests of central California and after following this site for the last couple years I now have ways of explaining the MANY MANY odd things that have happened to me over the years. I guess I have to call them class B encounters now

I'm retired military and now have time to do some serous investigations. I am looking forward to learning a lot from this forum.

My name is Jason Snapp 33 yrs old and I am a dentist that lives in Lafayette, IN.

I was accidently exposed to the concept BigFoot when I was in grade school and then shortly after that, there was a sighting in Knox county where I was raised.

My user name is DOK , while it is not my given name, most of my dental patients call me "DOC/DOK(for something different than the DOC version).

I acutally think i emailed BFRO back in college or dental school wanting to go on an expedition, but school was the priority. Three children later, I am gaining some free time to explore this unknown. I also received in BA of Biology and have hunted for most of my life but I have never experienced an encounter.

One side of me believes but I have questions and would love, at some point, join an expedition closer to home to lend a hand at whatever they ask. I dont believe in conspiracies but I do believe that more research needs to be done to gain some insight on the hundred of years sightings.

Look forward to making new friends and gaining more of an understanding on the BIG FELLA/GAL.

Jason "Dok"

Hello,

My name is Christopher Chichy I am an electrician from cookport, Pennsylvania. I was introduced to the BFRO when a friend of mine did some research his high school project, i have always been greatly interested in BF, but until recently i completely forgot about the BFRO until i saw on the news about the Jacobs Photos and that re sparked my interest.

Hi all,

My name is Keith. I live in Kodiak, Alaska. I love the wilderness and I hunt, fish and hike whenever I get the opportunity. I'm very interested in the natural world.
I guess you could say I am a student of the natural world. I want to understand what animal made that track or made that sound.
There is an old native legend here of a Bigfoot creature whom they call Orlock or Oorluck. He steals fish from your smokehouse, or carries away the bag of flour you left on the porch, etc. However, it is an old legend and there are no recent (within the last ten years or so) stories or sightings. It does indicate how universal the tale of the big hairy guy who lives in the woods is.

Personally, I am a skeptic. But I am a skeptic who would like nothing better than to be proved wrong! I want there to be a Sasquatch living out there somewhere. I think it is within the realm of possibility that a large primate, some cousin of homo sapiens, could be out there in the more remote reaches of the world. Since that possibility exists, I remain open to the evidence.

Good morning,
My name is Bill Orchard. One of the many late Vance Orchard, Grandsons.
I happen to live right in the heart of Bigfoot Country in Walla Walla, Wa.
I go by agdevgrp, because that is the abreviated name of a farm that I manage.
I am a Farm Manager for a leading research farm and specialty vegetables.
My grandfather was a leader in the Bigfoot Phenomanon in the Walla Walla area in the state of Washington, and I'd like to carry on with his work.
I live in the heart of Bigfoot print sightings in the Scenic loop area. Since my wifes family own a big chunk of that ground just below the Millcreek water shed my son and I have ample oportunity to hopefully intersept Bigfoot on are strategically placed stealth cams. I want to invite anyone who wishes to join in my and my sons quest to feel welcome. Just give me a shout on this sight.

Hello Bigfoot Researchers,

My name is Steve Moon. I have recently rekindled a long-standing interest in Bigfoot, and this time it looks like I知 really into it. I知 particularly interested in sightings here in my home state of Iowa. I致e started conducting informal research here and am interested in becoming a member of the BFRO.

I知 in my mid-fifties, and am an avid outdoors person, a deer and squirrel hunter and a spelunker. Each month throughout the year I spend a couple of nights camping in Northeast Iowa, and caving. I致e been a caver for 25 years. My former career was professional photography. Now I知 a professional researcher and librarian, and I am also an archaeologist. I have advanced degrees in each of these disciplines, and student loans up the yin-yang.

As an archaeologist my primary interest is the North American Paleoindian. Specifically, I知 looking at the colonization of North America at the end of the Pleistocene, before the end of the last ice age prior to 10 thousand years ago. For those familiar with the colonization issue, I知 firmly in the Pre-Clovis camp, believing that humans arrived on the continent from different directions as long ago as 50 thousand years. I find the argument that a large North American primate migrated onto the continent by crossing the Bering Land Bridge into what is now Alaska very intriguing and totally plausible, and believe that this could have occurred anywhere from 5 thousand to 50 thousand years ago or even earlier. I just read Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science by Jeff Meldrum and highly recommend it. Encourage your public library to purchase it if it痴 not there already!

I will be reading postings with great interest and look forward to contributing when I think I have something to say. I will also be watching for open enrollment for an expedition somewhere near the Midwest in the coming year. Thanks for reading!

When the small craft warnings come out, then you go sailing.

Hi Everyone!

My Name is Jenice and I am from Northern California. I currently reside in Guerneville, CA in Sonoma County and I love it here! I have been interested in BF since I first saw the Patterson/Gimlin film in the early 70's. I have probably come into near contact with a BF more than once in my years as a child roaming the mountains and streams of Northern California with my family on camping trips almost every weekend from about age 8 til about age 15. And also as an adult in visiting family near French Gulch in Shasta County and close friends about 11 miles outside Laytonville in Mendocino County, as well as a cabin near Rail Road Flat in Calaveras County and eventually on and near my own property on the edge of Trinity National Forest (28 acres) in Hayfork, CA in Trinity County. Places we have camped include, Tuolumne River, Stanislaus River, Mokelumne River, Merced River, Placerville Area, Sore Finger River, Downie River, Feather River, Yuba River, Mariposa Area near Coulterville etc.. So I have been in all the right places, but never looked for anything. I hope to join an expedition next year. I am an Executive Assistant by profession but have been semi retired for 3 years now. I look forward to chatting with you all.

Hi, everyone. I'm Lorraine S. I live in Georgia, where I'm an educator and a director for a small college. My background includes work in the fields of mental health, medicine, telecommunications, and I was even a handyman for a while.

I was an avid caver, spending every weekend in the woods of AL, TN, and GA, for many years. On those hikes to the cave, we very often heard tree-knocking and tree falls pacing us through the woods. Once in awhile we'd hear strange whistles and whoops. We also often saw broken, twisted tree tops that we thought quite suspicious. On a caving trip in the late 80s, a friend and I had what I believe was an encounter with a territorial BF. At the time, I hadn't heard of any BF reports from NW GA, AL, and TN, but I was always suspicious of the cave encounter and the odd, but seemingly deliberate, tree-knocking and falling. Later this winter, I plan to retrace some of my steps to see if I can collect documentation on the location of those sounds and signs (wish I'd kept notes in the past!).

Hi, my name is Murray H., from Calgary, Alberta. My outdoor activities involve 'walk in' fly fishing at remote streams, and camping several weeks per year in the Rocky Mountains.
I am a retired Telecommunications worker, and have always been interested in Bigfoot. I believe they're out there, but have never seen or heard one.

Thanks, Murray.

Hello, Red L. from New York State, Professional occupation with a college education. I am fascinated by the story's I hear, and the pictures I see on this site. From what I have been reading I believe its possible for BF to be hiding in the forests of the U.S. and may have migrated here many years ago.

Matt Burton B*****. On the Gulf Coast, AL. 31 yrs old, Economics degree from Auburn University, Logistics Analyst for a fortune 300 company. Hobbies - drinking, golf, watching football, and history/obscure facts.

Why I'm here - I'm an amateur historian on the Gulf Coast, from New Orleans to Pensacola, I know every obscure (sometimes worthless) fact. Thought I had every book available, but amazon.com recommended Bigfoot, UFO Sightings in Alabama. Of course I've known about BF in the NWest, but had never heard of anything in AL. Fascinated, and coincidently "Monster Quest" on the History Channel, read everyone's bio, and saw 3-4 from AL.
I'm open to the idea of there being something out there, but if you asked me if I believe, well, that's to be seen. Will probably not post often, but thanks for the approval.

I guess I broke protocol here by not properly introducing myself. Well at least according to "mwebbles".

So I am sorry for not introducing myself. My name is Jim and I live if the frosty state of MN. I found this site while looking up info. about bigfoot sightings in Minnesota. This site is awsome. I have learned more by reading the sightings and the followups. The site is a great resource for trying to figure what exactly bigfoot is and how it interacts with nature.

So hi to all, and yes even you mwebble, aka....Marc.

And hullo to you, Jim. Welcome to BFRO's Big Tent. I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a useful tool -- I happen to share your interest in upper midwest squatching (I do most of mine in UP Michigan). I've particularly enjoyed the thread you started about hibernation -- it's an aspect of our critter that continues to mystify me. You'll also find that this site can be useful for letting off a bit of steam -- but NOT in the way you and I did. Our shared fascination with this amazing animal should always trump our personal differences. Again: welcome.

MARC

My name is Rob and I am from Iowa. I have been a lurker here for several years. I have read the entire database and most of the posts on the Forum. I am an avid outdoorsman and love to hunt, fish, and camp. Some of my earliest memories are mushroom hunting with my family in "Happy Acres" which was the local timber. I saw an abundance of wildlife there and had a Bobcat jump over my head there once and even found a pricklypear cactus growing out of a crack in a rock there which everyone knows doesn't exist in Iowa. I am a Civil Engineer and have a couple of other degrees including an electronics degree. I've taken a few family vacations to the Rockies in the past few years that were actually just attempts by me to see a bigfoot, but that's not what I told my family.

Eric Bell, here. I live in Las Vegas and work in the construction industry. I've been reading the posts on this board for a while and thought I'd jump in. I enjoy the outdoors and use every outing as an excuse to look for Bigfoot. Believe it or not, I have found absolutely NO evidence in the desert in southern Nevada. Weird, huh?

Hi everyone, my name is Ine and I live in the Netherlands in Europe. I have been reading the BFRO-website for many years because I have an interest in BF, also in other unexplained subjects. I just ordered the book "Legend Meets science" from J.Meldrum in a Dutch bookshop. I hope it will be delivered before Christmas. In Holland there have been no BF-sightings? (its very dense populated), but a few years ago I have read ( I dont no where on the web) about a sighting in the National Park de Veluwe. It's close to the German border and there are a lot of trees. So perhaps, there are some in Holland? Are there more members from Holland or Belgium? Please let me know.

Hello--This is my intro post--My name is Eric A. I live in Puyallup WA. My educational background is a BS in Biology w/some graduate work in Marine Biology. I have been following the Sasquatch story since I was a kid and my dad gave me a book on the subject. I've spent a great deal of time on this site pouring over the posts (much to the chagrin of my wife) and I've learned much. I thought I would finally get off my duff and enter into the fray. I do enjoy the outdoors and am an avid hiker.
