The primary research areas in the urban location are these, although the research intends to branch out to some other periphery locales over time.

Area #1= the ditch, grassy right-of-way with trail entry opening and the cedar tree break.
Area #2= pipeline right-of-way / P-ROW. Using the bike/hike trail is just the way to get to the P-ROW. This area includes the east side trail entry with large limbs signature stack and the nearby 3 tree breaks location.This is 2 miles east of area #1.



June 28, 2014

I took off 27 days from the study. I enjoyed a 16-day vacation that was much needed and I came back renewed and ready to tackle the site again with a fresh eye. If the "unseen participants" were on a circuit and moving around in the summertime, they might be ready to head back into my urban study site again. The past study taught me that they tend to go back and forth between a few places, sometimes several miles apart.

Early in the morning, my wife and I went bike riding in the park. While at the back end of the bike trail, I stopped at the P-ROW (pipeline right-of-way) to check the two areas that had activity before. The foliage was heavy now, but other than that, things looked unchanged. In fact, with the foliage, it made it hard to see these locations from the P-ROW path.

We rode back to area #1 to the tires setup. When I arrived, I observed a change. Not far from the trail opening, out of the grassy area, there were some limbs and branches laid out across the grassy area from the tree line over to where the grassy area goes down into the ditch. Actually, it looked like some sort of crude blocking formation to keep wheeled items out such as bikes, tractors and mowers. This went on toward south of the creek. I had never seen this kind of thing there before. 



The four tires had been moved. Two tires were found approximately 10 feet from where I had stacked the four together previously. This was near the larger tree inside the tree line near the cedar tree with the break. It was hard to see from the grassy area. 


The other two tires were found deeper in the wooded area I was investigating. 


I rearranged the tires again into a new setup to see what would happen next. The doughnut package that had been left, was now gone. I did not find the wrapper either.

July 4, 2014

The tire setups I left on June 28th, were not tampered with. I rearranged them again.



I moved deeper into the woods into a small clearing. I also explored the immediate area in more detail. This I had not done yet. Nearly all previous visits were 30 minutes or less, a few had been 30 minutes to an hour. This time, I was compelled to go check on some "trash pockets," or piles of junk. I was not certain who had piled up these areas of trash, but I planned to bring trash bags next time and clean up, though something about these finds had me pondering who had dumped trash there and why....

I did some new setups and this was the layout - 

1.  Put the four tires with plastic junk bottles or containers on sticks in the ground besides the tires in four directions.




2.  I moved the four-foot log from another tree to this larger tree and put on the vertical leaning log, two sweet treats (packaged doughnuts).




3.  I nailed a photo to the tree. This is a photo from a trip to Sulphur, Oklahoma in which I'm standing near a creek in a place where approximately 200 footprints were observed and photo documented by me in the Fall of 2003.  Just to cover all bases, on the laminated sheet, I also printed out some Ogham writing. These symbols have been seen in some ancient sites around the United States and some stick formations left behind by Sasquatch appear to show similar shapes. I have to wonder if they might have learned this from early settlers here or been influenced by things they saw draw on rock walls and carved into rock surfaces. 



4.  I laid out reddish volcanic rocks in a circular pattern and 3 sticks made into a tripod over it.



5.  In the junk pockets/trash dumps I found within the woods, I found a tremendous number of balls of all kinds, soccer, softball, baseball, tennis, ping pong.... I gathered a bunch on this trip and made a circle near a log in the clearing area. 




6.  I took branches and limbs and laid them out as a V-shaped marker (arrow direction pointer) in  different spots in the immediate area.  All pointed towards the small clearing area with the new setups, food and balls. At the point of each direction arrow, I stood a stick in the ground of approximately 12-18 inches in length and put a plastic bottle from the junk pile onto the stick so that the arrows on the ground would be more noticeable.  









7.  I left two sets of packaged doughnuts behind some thick vines on the gifting tree.  These put approximately 6 to 7 feet off the ground. 






July 13, 2014

I arrived at the parking area. I then took my bike to area #1. The branches and limbs were still in the grassy area as I placed them on my last visit.  I decided not to move them.

The 4 arrow-directional pointers I laid out the last time have been messed with. Three of the ground arrows have the wood scattered around. The other arrow has the stick with plastic container knocked over. Of course, all of these could have been hit by hogs, deer, and the like.





At the tires setup, the top tire was now on the ground with the pop-up toy vehicle next to it on its side. Two of the four sticks stuck in the ground with plastic bottles on them were now knocked over.  








The rock circle had one of the rocks moved inside the wheel, another rock was on the outside



The two sweet treats of doughnuts are gone. The wrappers are nowhere to be seen. 

I decided to explore the area more. There were specific junk/trash pockets within the park woods. These contain glass, metal and plastic containers, paper trash, garbage lids of various types, water meter valve covers, and balls of various colors and sizes.




I estimate this area to be 50-75 yards square with many junk/trash pockets within.  At some point in the future, I decided I would get more accurate measurements of the overall area and junk, trash pockets using 25-foot and 100-foot tape measures.  

The last 2 visits yielded 54 balls from the junk/trash pockets. These were all colors and sizes from ping pong to regulation basketball sizes.  Also, the area stays damp for long periods of time and seems to be a rooting/wallowing area of hogs, especially the junk/trash pockets. 

I had taken the balls and lined them up in 3 rows behind a ground log in the clearing/interaction spot. From the grassy area, the balls cannot be seen. 



I also took the sticks with plastic bottles and containers that were at the head of the 4 directional ground points and moved them to the front of the 4 stacked tires.  




The tire on the ground, I leaned against the other 3. I also put the containers knocked over behind another log on their sticks. I then moved the toy next to another ground log. That was all I planned for this trip.

Thinking back at the junk/trash pockets, I had to wonder if this might be some kind of lure to dump trash from park containers into an area and make something attractive to smaller creatures for a private Sasquatch hunting site. If it is, this shows a very keen mind at work and good at utilizing resources for personal gain.

Admittedly, this perplexing realization made me wonder just what kinds of games of intelligence I could provide on future setups....

Odds and Ends in Sasquatch Arena



A movie called "Exists" coming out in late October reports its plot line as;

"A group of friends who venture into the remote Texas woods for a party weekend find themselves stalked by Bigfoot."


Another "monster" movie.

So far, "Letters From the Big Man" tops my charts. 


On a scientific front, this flower caught my interest.  The Diphylleia grayi.  Interestingly, on the health front (something I love to study), it has great components of lingnans that can help with tumor reduction, but besides that - notice the petals; they turn translucent when wet. See how they absorb colors behind them and light and moisture? 




Don't know if it can be extrapolated to that, but there are adaptive things by creatures and plants that need to survive and it might be that the translucency of Sasquatchs' hairs helps them. 

In videos, it shows that in light, Sasquatch become light - that makes them hard to see. If I were naked in the woods, my flesh would look darker tan in the shadows and in the sunlight would look a paler pinkish tone, but for a translucent hair-covered being, it might be that when the light hits translucent hairs, we only see light and do not see detail and where they enter shadow, they take it on and absorb it. If there were a chance of chlorophyll in their bodies, the right lignans as a plant like this has and adaptation might be even more noticeable in the hairs. 

There are scientific reasons for cloaking capabilities and they are adaptive.  A chameleon can blend into environments, but his relative, the gecko does not adapt his color for each place he is standing. We don't think that's odd. We shouldn't think it's odd that just because apes and humans don't seem to have translucent hairs, that one of our relatives might.

One of my favorite video analysts, ThinkerThunker, found something quite amazing with lots of probing and hard work, check this one out - 





Amazing Unexplainable Find!




This hammer found in rock was discovered when cracking open the rock when the finders, a husband and wife in Texas in the 1930s, found the wood sticking out of a rock. The iron is almost pure and had to be done by modern methods and yet the rock is 400 million years old and the hammer was aged at 500 million years. 

There are many more finds like this that are out of time/out of place and are set aside by researchers as absurd. There is one way to explain such things. There were other civilizations, many of them, for many millions of years upon the earth.

Do Human Souls Have a Purpose?



A sense of purpose.

It's vital to us mortals to have a sense of purpose, a driving force, because we think of life in reference to physicality and needs; procuring food, shelter, mating, health, and social support.

We answer to clocks and calendars, time lines and commitments. We tally off the to-do list as we move along. And, upon occasion some hidden aspect of ourselves asks, "what is my purpose here? It's certainly not to pay bills or sit in traffic, I hope."  


Sometimes we try to tap that higher purpose, but then this physical realm rears its ugly head again to awaken us from the spiritual and remind us of the practical. 

It's hard to pay attention to spirit when we meditate because the very "real life" issues interrupt our meditative thoughts

We lay back and practice controlled breathing only to become aware of our aches, pains and deep bone-grating exhaustion. 

If we go on vacation and enjoy a completely carefree time, we know we must go back to the grind because life demands we produce, produce, produce

If we feel moments of utter joy and contentment, our eyes cloud over with sorrow for the fact that, well, it must end....

When we leave this incarnation and become spirit without body, that situation is hard for us to imagine. Does the spirit world have a purpose or are souls just having a wild free-for-all for all eternity with no actual tasks or purpose? 


Are we a collective holding of God's designs joined together in a great "reward" of eternity without need for food, procreation or physical ailments? That hardly sounds like purpose to us mortals, does it?  It sounds like hedonism and perhaps a bit boring after a couple eons.... 

Our only frame of reference is that of physical beings. In fact, a fantastic saying proclaims; 


"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." 

From this perspective, perhaps the more important question is; do physical forms serve a purpose? Perhaps it provides a vessel for a soul to experience an aspect of the universe which is terrestrial and biological in nature. Are souls simply having a practical applied experience in universal knowledge rather than the theoretical? (Hands-on training, if you will?).

Does the universe just play out every possible scenario souls including mortal and immortal forms? 

Is the mortal universe simply a superficial layer of something much deeper, like a face hides a beautiful soul? 

Are there levels of spirit in the afterlife in which they must mature through all processes beginning with mortal realm and ending with unity with the universal all? 

Must we leave this realm for a pseudo-realm that has a physical appearance we are accustomed to, like those who have near-death experiences and tell of light, fields, flowers and dead relatives appearing? Is it is a decompression chamber for the next level of spiritual experience?

Here's the problem of our mortal perspective: Gas in a can is fuel waiting to be utilized. It is just sitting there. Once it's in an engine, that engine drives a person across country. So, we make an assumption, without being utilized in a purpose, our soul is sort of like a full gas can with no engine. 

Our limited experience of life as a thinking being in a physical plane does not truly allow us to understand any other way of being. Do you understand how it is to be a rock? A building? A bird?  One way we can gain insight is from near-death experiencers who report their time on the other side. 

One of the most reported happenings is a sense of existence that they had no comparison to.  They often say, "that world was real, this one is not." That is another dimensional perspective when you join a collective in which there is no time, no physical obstacles, immediate connection to all that has been, is, will be, and all life forms, the universal whole. 

It would be like a baby in the womb, alone and sucking its thumb, floating around, kicking occasionally, hiccuping, but doing all of this with no sense of other. Then, the baby comes out of the birth canal and people await him, to hold him, to cuddle him, to feed him, to make him never feel alone again in the physical realm.

That is what the birthing process is like as we move from this physical realm to the spiritual. We leave being physically separate from others and suddenly move into a true connection with all humanity. It's a level of connection that brings near-death experiencers to tears when they recollect it.  

In fact, we are too linear in our thinking that one body houses one soul and that soul is an entity. It is obvious by the transfer of energy from the dying biological form, that there is no vessel for that energy - it is more like liquid entering a stream than stone being tossed into a stream. We go from separate to united.

All we have to do is look at the interdependence upon the earth which is a microcosm of the universe. We have rain that falls from the sky to provide for plants and creatures, and we have plants and trees that give off oxygen, living creatures that give off carbon dioxide, and all of it working to create a balance by its coexistence and very nature being designed to interrelate and manage to continue life upon the planet in this physical biological realm.

So does the universe have a need to continue on a symbiotic relationship that relates all pieces of its existence, from physical to gaseous, liquid to energy, mortal to immortal.  

Our souls purpose would be the breath that gives life to symbiosis and synchronicity in the universe, it is an expression of the very makeup of everything; yin and yan, counterbalancesOur body is yin. Our soul is yan. Our physical universe is yin. Our spiritual universe is yan. 

And therein, perhaps, lies the answer to the age old questions; do human souls have a purpose?
