Director of the upcoming Oregon Sasquatch Symposium. OSS organizer Toby Johnson hasn’t seen a Sasquatch first hand, but he is a BF advocate just the same. This wasn’t always so. 7 years ago, he and his son found what Johnson calls“a large human footprint” during an early morning hike, though even then he wasn’t convinced he’d stumbled upon anything special. Nonetheless, Toby snapped a photo of the print and began “shopping it around to people in the community,” and things began to change. To his surprise, Toby discovered that the Willamette area is teeming with Sasquatch witnesses, though many of the people he spoke with were unwilling to go public with their stories. “For obvious reasons, people don’t want to be associated out and out,” Because of this, the Oregon Sasquatch Symposium partly serves as a Sasquatch support group, albeit one where the therapeutic model is reversed — instead of opening up and sharing your problems, you’re simply sharing what many call the indisputable truth. “Right around us there are little small miracles,” Toby said, adding that one of his motivations in putting together the OSS was to provide “an environment that supported the witness and informed the skeptic.”
