Raised in Western Washington From Grays Harbor to Clark County ( The wet side of the State)
Grandfather told me a personal story about an incident, on his farm, involving a 5' tall Monkey in the Late 1950's
Had my first Bigfoot encounter in 1963
1963 Shared that encounter during a show and tell in a 5th grade Library class. Librarian pulled me aside and said I must read Ivan Sanderson's book, Abominable Snowmen: Legend come to life. It was published in 1961. That Librarian must have known something personally about the subject, I am thankful she did.
1968 Interest faded until Argosy Magazine broke the Patterson Gimlin Film story, Also written by Ivan Sanderson. I still have the original February 1968 edition of the Argos magazine. Also digitized each page of the article.
1972,73 Worked Summers for the Forest Service cutting trail around the Mount St Helens area before the mountain blew. Had a couple of interesting things happen.
Bigfoot hiatus during the 80's and early 90's raising family and part owner of a business venture.
Mid 90's internet forums on Bigfoot caught my attention and I followed bigfooters chasing the illusive creature.
2006 became a BFRO field investigator. Met and investigated reported incidents. Took my wife on an expedition, she saw eye shine of a very large and tall Hominid.
