Back from the Yakima Bigfoot Round Up!
I am back from the Yakima Bigfoot Round Up (well, I have been back since Sunday, actually) and I had a blast! It was the best day of my life in a very long time! I got to meet The Man- Bob Gimlin! I got to meet and hang out with all sorts of wonderful people! And they were all just like me! (Well, different shapes, sizes, and sexes, if that matters.) I got to meet for the first time some of those wonderful people who have helped me on my show, been supporters of my show, and who have been guests on my show: Henry May, Eric Altman. Billy Willard, John Cartright, Sherry (BigfootGal), and Bruce (Creature Seeker). I have never seen so may Bigfooters gathered in one spot before! There must have been 250 to 300 people present there! So much kindness and positive energy radiating outwardly from the people at this event! There were people there from Oregon, California, Washington, Canada, Australia, Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Texas, Mississippi, and even Russia! And the way they ended the Round Up with that video! Wow! The presentations were very interesting. Dr. Bindernagel used my drawing during his presentation, and even announced I was there! I had all the books I brought signed by the authors. I even sold two copies of my book, traded one, and gave one to Dr. Bindernagel and to Tom Yamarone for letting me come to this event. I have been reliving the event over and over again in my mind and in my dreams. I will be posting pictures of the event in this blog and in my Yahoo group for all those interested. I also want to thank Tom Yamarone, James "Bobo" Fay, and Paul Graves and the people who owned the ranch for putting on such a wonderful event!
