Good show today

We had a good show today with Luke Gross as a guest. I felt we didn't have enough time so he will be the guest next week as well. Thomas Hughes (Smiter) also joined us on the show, and Janice gave us a quick rundown of the Ohio Bigfoot conference she attended. I apologize if I sounded like I was whining or something on the show today. I felt I had a legitimate complaint about the Bigfoot community and not feeling like a part of the Bigfoot brethren so to speak, since most of my listeners are out East. I would so much love to have had the fellowship and camaraderie everyone had at the Ohio conference but unfortunately that doesn't happen out here. Why I don't know. I may get fed up before too long and hold a conference myself- or throw in the towel on Bigfoot research all together. I just feel I may never meet any of you in person, and it saddens me to think that, but I'm a realist about such things. Thanks for listening.

A Complaint

Okay, now it's time for a complaint. I feel left out because I'm all they way here in Oregon and all my listeners and listeners of the other shows are all in the Midwest, South, or East Coast and are all neighbors literally. From what I understand at the Ohio conference they all got to meet each other. That doesn't happen out West that I know of. I swear all the researchers out here are either unavailable all the time or have attitude problems. Only myself, Bobbie Short, and Karen Orum were from the west coast in the chatrooms of the shows.
Over the weekend I revisited the site of my 1991 encounter. Someone should have been with me at Mineral Lake over the weekend. We found circumstantial evidence on the spot of my 1991 encounter. Only my two best friends were with me, and they have no experience at this sort of thing. I contacted several researchers who were local and near me. I got no response or disinterest in going with me. Hell, I even tried the little names too. The ones that I knew of anyway. Someone with experience should have been with me to show me what to look for. I could have missed some good evidence because I wasn't sure what I was looking for. I am all by my lonesome out here. Well, I do thank all my listeners who listen to my show.

Good show today

Well, we had a good show today despite having trouble starting the show due to Blogtalk technical problems. Janice and JC were absent so Thomas Hughes (Smiter) stepped in on the show with me and he did great. We may have upset a few people for some "tough guy" talk we were doing, but I felt we both voiced out opinions in a non-offensive manner. We are just passionate about what we do. I apologize to anyone who got offended by the talk we did. I told of my return to Mineral Lake after 17 years and Smiter told a few of his stories. Regina and Luke Gross called into the show as well. I will be posting the pics and video of Mineral Lake here on the blog. It will tell the story much more than I could with words. I watched "Keeping the Watch" by John Johnson and it was a real good documentary.

Great show today! New Co-Host! New Show Banner!

We had an excellent show today. Thomas Hughes (Smiter) was the guest, and Dave Ortiz of Four Corners Crypto filled in for JC today as JC is on the road with Tom Biscardi. Janice Carter debuted as my new second co-host and she's wonderful. I even had Luke Gross of Texas call in to tell me he recorded the exact same sounds last night in a ravine in Texas that I recorded several weeks ago in the ravine behind my house here in Oregon. Hopefully Luke will send me a copy of the sounds he recorded so I can compare them to the ones I recorded. Very significant in my opinion. I also now have a publisher for my book. Idyll Arbor Publications, who under the Pine Winds Press imprint published Valley of the Skookum and the revised Bigfoot Casebook. I am so happy. My friend also made a new banner for the show that I have now posted to this page and my blogtalk page. Thomas had interesting stories and he plans to come back on the show soon. The show is starting to take off and it will only get better.

Good show last weekend

We had a good show last weekend. For the first time in my life I got to talk to a full-blooded Native American and ask him questions about Bigfoot, a subject his people are very well versed in. Also an interesting development out where JC lives- a fresh sighting got reported to him right then and there on the show. Unfortunately due to bad weather I didn't get to go on my return trip to Mineral Lake. I am hoping to go next month.
