Vlog Friday: Dreams


The stages of sleep make for some of the most eventful times of our entire day. I don't care how busy you are awake, when you're asleep, you're putting in double time. 

The phase of first phase of sleep (alpha state) occurs as you are drifting off and when you first wake up are a lot like the feelings of hypnosis, body is afloat, mind is not engaged on analytical thinking, you simply exist. This is a key time for slipping in and out of the body in out of body experiences/astral projection and also visitation from the dead. If awakened in this phase, you may feel like you didn't sleep and your body might also jerk as if you are falling. This lasts perhaps 5-10 minutes.

The second phase of sleep, your muscles contract and relax repeatedly throughout, the heart rate slows, the temperature drops. The body at this point is preparing for deeper sleep, going into almost a hibernation physiology.

The third and fourth stages take you into the deeper realms. Three is deep, but fourth is intensely deep. The brain waves slow and if people are awakened at this time, they will be hard to arouse. We go in and out of REM (rapid eye movement/dream state) for short periods. This occurs about every 90 minutes. During the deepest stages, the body repairs and your immune system strengthens. As we age, we get less of this restorative sleep. 

Thankfully, our bodies go into a paralysis during the deeper stages and so when we do have dream state, we don't act on them, though sometimes these functions are disrupted and hence there is talking and walking, even eating in one's sleep.

If someone tells you they had a weird night's sleep, well, that's more the norm than we realize. Unusual sleep events do happen because of the delicate balance between the sleep phases, environmental interruptions, chemical influences from medications, and exhaustion. 

We also tend to change up the themes on our dreams during the night, to where we left off anxiety and fear, steam and anger in the earlier dreams and work into problem solving in subsequent dreams until morning when we might start having pleasant, happy, hopeful and arousing dreams.

Sleep walking and talking.  When sleep paralysis phase is interrupted, the body can move, both mouth and legs. Some people get up and actually make food and eat while their mind is still in sleep state. There are some people whose transition from sleep states are more ineffective so that they are more prone to talking or walking in sleep. It has also been shown that certain drug effects can alter the sleep state, as in the case of people taking sleeping pills and even driving asleep. 

Out-of-body experiences.  
Out-of-body experiences are described as a sense of leaving your body (like in near-death experiences) and traveling and witnessing things in other locations. I have had these to such a degree that I communicated with someone in another country, in her apartment and then the next day asked her if she saw me there. I described the apartment, how they were speaking, what her fiance looked like who was standing behind her. She was shocked. She had seen me in her apartment and worried that I wouldn't understand her speaking slowly to speak English clearly. I had wondered in the encounter why she was speaking so oddly. We might possibly have OBEs in our sleep more than we know. I have gone places and learned things in my sleep that I couldn't have known, details about people's homes, what they wear to bed, what's on their walls, the books on their shelves.... The only warning I have is a super high vibration in my entire body so that it feels like every cell is fluttering like a million hummingbirds. This occurs upon leaving and reentering.

Encounters with aliens and the dead.
You are most likely to have an alien encounter or a visitation from the dead in the sleep state between stages. Some people report sleep paralysis with this and associate that with the aliens controlling their body, but sleep paralysis with waking encounters are common. I have had them where I open my eyes, see the room, but cannot move my body. That's a part of sleep staging. It's what you seeing during that time that is questionable. If you are still in a dream state, it can appear that you seeing things not there, like the hallucinations of dreams. It's a catch-22 when understanding these encounters. Were they genuine encounters done at this time because the mind is in a state to perceive and not a threat or are they result of dream state interfering on waking state? I can say that two of my encounters with greys in my room, I was moving around, in fact, the first time, I swung my legs over to go to the restroom when I saw one in front of me, I also crawled across the bed to try to touch on. I could have been asleep, but all sense were involved in this encounter including sense of smell and temperature, light and I was up and studying the window's view within seconds. 

Premonition dreams. 
I've had these for decades and they are unsettling. I did learn a commonality - it is a premonition dream if no one in the setting sees or hears me. I'm there as a kind of witness. I have gone down with many airplanes, been hijacked, survived earthquakes and tidal waves. I am not sure why these events can come through 24-48 hours beforehand, but they can and some of us have an uncanny ability to see a dream come true. If the pineal gland truly is the third eye and it is the regulator for our sleep and dream state, there might be a tie-in.

Sleep paralysis.
Paralysis is important in sleep to keep us from hurting ourselves, but sometimes it can be terrifying if you start becoming conscious during it. I've awakened during anesthesia a few times (redheaded complaint) and it is horrifying. In one case of sleep paralysis, I fell asleep on some cushions on the floor watching a movie. My eyes fluttered open and I saw the credits scrolling but I could not move my body. I felt strangely heavy and drugged. My mind felt foggy and weird and I interpreted this as the screen scrolling safe harbors to go to in my neighborhood during the ongoing nuclear attack. I wanted to read where to go, but my eyes weren't clear and I couldn't move and felt drunken. I thought perhaps the radiation had already affected me. It was horrifying. 

Night terrors.
This happens more often to children, but adults can get them too. It can happen when you are overly exhausted and go to bed or taking medications. A shift in the sleep and wake state makes you have a nightmare that you are able to scream, sit up, throw your arms about and fight off an imagined threat and can be very difficult to calm down. 

As you can see, with so many possibilities in the dream state, we seem to have lots of chances for things to go wrong, but also chances for interactions our brains can't perceive in our analytic awake state.

Abandoned Victorian Houses


If you are into Victorians, the abandoned ones are true treasures of creepiness, great bygone days, and for some of us who imagine fixing them up, a real beautiful challenge!





















Gourmet: Eat Like a Sasquatch



We utilize farmer's markets to get freshly grown items to enhance our cooking experience, but many chefs find items grown in the wild to be exotic local tastes to add to their dishes. They consider it a natural enhancement, but the woodlands really were the first growing sources for food. 

If you ever worried about Sasquatch's diet, consider this - they live in a wonderland of fab foods! Let's just take some of the things they work with and consider the gourmet properties, medicinal, and nutritional benefits. 

Wild Boar:  (1 pound of raw meat) 544 calories, 262 mg of cholesterol, 96 grams of protein
Deer: (1 pound raw):  336 calories, 80 mg of cholesterol, 96 grams of protein
Catfish:  (1 raw fillet) 215 calories, 75 mg of cholesterol, 25 grams of protein
Fresh water mussels:  (3 ounces) 70 calories, great source of vitamin B12.



Now, let's wonder into the Sasquatch produce aisle, shall we? 


Juniper Berries


Juniper berries grow on juniper shrubs in the wild. Their medicinal properties have been used to alleviate anemia and give stamina, energy, fighting off flus and colds, aches and pains. In general, an anti-inflammatory and energizing effect. They are used to make gin and have that sharp taste, but also can be used to cut through gamey taste in wild meats. Great with game meat, but also in soups, it can be roasted to make a great coffee substitute.  

Sasquatch signs:  If bushes have been freed of their berries, even up high where deer do not reach, this might be a sign of Sasquatch nibbling.

Recipes


Salmon Rub:  Dried juniper berries crushed in a spice grinder with Earl Grey tea. Sounds wild, huh? Well, a very hip Scandinavian chef understands the bergamot and juniper make an amazing taste when curing the salmon and searing it. 

Fiddleheads


The unfurled fronds of fern plants, fiddleheads are a gourmet cook's treat. They are harvested very early in the season before the frond unfurls and cut close to the ground.  They are served as a cooked vegetable.  They are kind of like if asparagus met string beans in taste/texture.  They have a short season, so you must harvest in the spring while they are available. They are very high in vitamin A and has about 44% of your vitamin C needs for the day.   

Sasquatch signs:  If you can't find fiddleheads, there might be a reason. Look around those ferns in the very early spring and see if they've left some prints. 

Recipe

Saute the fiddleheads in butter, garlic, red pepper flakes and salt for 10 minutes.


Wild Grapes

Much of today's grapes have been hybridized to be seedless, but sadly the important antioxidants are in those seeds and indigenous people did well eating those for their diet. A diet is the array of foods a being needs to ingest to get proper nutrients for cell turnover, growth, maintenance of weight, and immune system support. Wild grapes are a healthy source, but also need to be carefully looked at. A wild grape has multiple roundish seeds inside, but the poisonous moonseed, has a single crescent-shaped seed. Knowing this you can keep from being sick. Of course, we all know grapes are great for jellies, jams. 

Sasquatch signs: These vines/bushes are an easy snag for Sasquatch hair while nibbling on the yummy treats. I'd say, come back when berries and grapes are fermented and see if they might have dropped some inhibitions, left some stumbling marks (see notes at the end of this post)

Recipe




Morels


Morel mushrooms. Lots of folks in woodland areas appreciate foraging for these gems in the woods. It has become a family pass time for many generations. This honeycomb topped fungus is a gourmet delight. They are rich in B-complex, vitamin D and essential amino acids. They also potentially lower the risk of breast and prostate cancer. At a going price of $10 to $20 an ounce, gourmet cooks consider them gold. 

Recipe


Slice morels length wise in half.  Heat oil over medium heat. Mix 3/4 c milk with 2 eggs. Break up one 4-ounce package of saltines. Drip into milk/egg mix and then saltines and carefully drop into hot oil. Flip when golden brown - they cook fast. Drain on paper towels and then salt and pepper. 

Sassafras


Most of us know sassafras for its root beer flavor and the root's tasty tea. The medicinal properties of sassafras are pretty significant.  It's effects are far reaching from handling colds and flus, diuretic properties, and topically, it helps poison ivy and eczema.  The leaves, roots and shoots are all edible.  

Recipe



Wild Leeks


This plant (aka "ramps") has leave and bulb that smell like onion. They surface deep in the forest early in spring before other things pop up. They are high in vitamin A, vitamin C, selenium and chromium. 


Recipe

Pizza with fresh leeks and morels is about as good as it gets. Drizzle a trace of truffle oil on top and you have a woodland pizza! 


Dandelion


Dandelion might be thought by some as a weed, but all the parts are edible. Some people confuse dandelion with "false dandelion" or "Hawksbeard." 


The greens, tops and roots all have medicinal qualities. They have a high amount of vitamin A, tons of vitamin K, and vitamin C.  They can be used to make wines, put in soups and salads and more. My mother used to candy them for atop of cakes. 

Recipes

1-2 cups of flowers, 1 egg white at room temp, 1 tsp water, 1/2 c. superfine sugar, a drying rack. 

Put sugar into blender to grind to a fine texture. 

Mix water and egg white and drip flowers in it, let drip and then sprinkle with superfine sugar, set on rack and let dry and harden into shape. 


Chickweed


Chickweed is chock full of healthy stuff and tastes sort of like spinach.  They can even be grown as a pot herb and used on salads.  It can be used to constipation, coughs and colds, a diuretic and expectorant. In fact, when I used to make herbal teas, this was in my head cold mix - with some other goodies that helped alleviate mucus symptoms and boost immunity. 

Recipe


Use chickweed for a pesto!  2 cloves garlic, 3 tablespoons of pine nuts (discussing those next), 2 cups chopped fresh chickweed, 1/2 c. olive oil, 1/2 c. parmesan in the blender.


Pine Nuts


These sought after gourmet nuts are harvested from pine cones.  They are ready to harvest 10 days before the green cone begins to open.  The cones are dried in a burlap bag in the sun for 20 days. Cones are then smashed and seeds are separated by hand from cone fragments. (be sure to check your forest floor for signs of smashing by the Sasquatch - they often do this on tree stumps with a rock).  These are calorie packed so great bang for the buck for the Tall Ones. They are also high in vitamin E. 

Recipe  

How about cooking quinoa with pine nuts, raisins and garlic? Add a little olive oil and some fresh diced parsley. 


Fermented berries and grapes
(Is Sasquatch a berry crack whore?)

Rasperries, blackberries, juniper berries and wild grapes all ferment on the vine and then what happens? Well, sometimes it's too good to pass up!




This is only a fraction of what is available in the wild. I didn't even delve into things like various mushrooms, roots, berries, greens, seeds, nuts, and other sources of dense protein. 

I believe in backtracking in research. I study who Sasquatch descended from so I can legitimize their very existence. They have to have a lineage, just like we do. Most of us arrived on second or third migration to America (Native American and Europeans). It is my conjecture, they were part of the first migration or what is referred to as the ancient giants. They have the same skull shape and the same size and they are heavily populated not far from ancient giant civilization lands. That is my own take on it thus far, but they had to come from some lineage of man.

In the case of the woods, it's easier to find where they are going by where they have been; which areas they depleted of resources on their circuit. I also believe they show a great amount of restraint in eating things in a grazing manner, leaving adequate resources behind to not draw attention to or lose their food sources in that area, so they mark the spot with perhaps an arch or an X. That lets them know - I've fed here already but some remains. It is kind of like putting out McDonald's signs along their roadway to know where the next rest stop is. 

They also use some unusual methods that will be revealed next week on the Tuesday installment of "The Urban Sasquatch Journal."  The more I learn of their methods of survival, the more determined I am to protect family units and their precious and worthy existences.

Don't worry about the Sasquatch, they are well fed. We could learn from their example and do a little foraging as our ancestors had. There are many medicinals and high protein, high nutrient foods in the woods and, as some clever chefs have found, they are gourmet finds!

The Stalker Between the Worlds Series: "Walking Dead"


*Warning: Photographs and information in this ongoing series might be upsetting to some readers. Discretion advised.*

This will be an ongoing series chronicling a couple years' worth of encounters with bizarre, horrific, and taunting interplay between one innocent citizen and a stalker that defies description (at least in our known world).

This was an exceptionally well-documented series of events that may at times be too graphic or horrifying for some readers, but it is our hope that by sharing this experience, someone out there might recognize a set of circumstances that are similar.

We have advice to be given to anyone encountering what I am at a lack of words to accurately describe, so henceforth refer to it as…the stalker between the worlds.



This is episode one - 


"Walking Dead"



Tucked in a rural setting in the southern hills of the United States, a hometown man walked the circuit of roadways around his home. The walker liked to be outdoors and enjoyed walking and thinking, breathing in, breathing out, contemplating nature, the universe, and his own part in it all. The walks were generally uneventful, running across the occasional passing car on the tree-lined lanes, but all in all, a pleasant, quiet and invigorating constitutional. 

That is until a walk almost two years ago. 

The walker saw something along the roadway on one of his excursions that looked out of place. He slowed down his pace, looked down at his feet to see a spine from an unknown creature. 





The spine had no ribs or bones, flesh or head. It was uncertain what kind of creature it was.  The walker lifted his head and looked around the area for more parts of the body, but nothing was found, only a stain on the roadway.



He also found a strangely bent spoon nearby. 



The spine was odd, but it could have been picked over by a buzzard or some creature after being hit by a car. Still, the skull and ribs, arms, legs, whatever else, were all gone from sight.  There was no blood to show this creature was dismembered and spine removed there onsite. 

He continued his walk and enjoyed an uneventful evening and dismissed the spine as one of those quirks of the natural world and its predator/prey dance.

That is, until another walk....

This time, the walker, lost in his thoughts about the coming season and things on his to-do list, about a half mile from his home, studied the ground ahead of him as he walked. Then, something pale and delicate showed up ahead and as he came closer, he squinted down at the ground to make out something he hadn't seen before along the road; the bleached spine of a snake, and beside it, another, and then another, and then another....







He grew up in the area and certainly knew what was the norm and this was not.  Four snake skeletons all together was an odd sight, especially odd because he did not see them the day before and yet the spines were articulated and bleached. He took some pictures to document the interesting find.

Pondering this strange display and trying to figure out the odds of how such a thing was possible to show up and happen in one area within days apart, the walker ambled off towards home with better things to do than investigate the roadway. Still, in the back of his mind, he was thinking that he needed to study the roads more closely from now on, as they seemed to contain some unusual victims he hadn't encountered before. 

The next time he went walking, the walker passed a driveway that led to an old quarry that wasn't used in the past decades, but recently had some trucks coming in and out for the first time. The sign to the gravel quarry was pulled out of the ground. It looked like someone had rocked back and forth in the ground, leaving a slot where it finally released from the soil, pulling it up and tossing it aside. That was a sign of destruction not seen in their peaceful area. 



He came to the intersection where his back road met the quarry road and stopped in horror.





A dead baby boar, splayed out. It didn't seem to be hit by a car, but something wasn't right at all. He looked it over and saw, another baby boar that was dead nearby, its intestines dangling from the vines above it in a graphic display.



He inspected them a little closer....



One was pulled open, guts gone, and not a drop of blood. No blood anywhere.  Something was not right at all. It was obvious to the walker that the boars weren't from around there. They didn't have them up in the hill area, just down in the swamps. Who would bring the dead boars to the area and dump them in that condition? They couldn't have killed them right there. There was no blood. They weren't decayed yet, but flies were on them and they were there perhaps a day. They certainly had not been there on the last walk. He wouldn't have missed that!

He shivered at the thought of someone carrying the nasty carcasses there and dumping them. It was not a practical joke anyone would want to participate in, given the grotesque nature of it.  The bodies seemed to be laid out for someone to find right there at that rural intersection.  That is, if people frequented the quiet roadway.  

Puzzled, the walker lifted his head and started studying the trees.  Was someone trying to punk him? This was obviously executed for effect. No signs of cameras were anywhere to be found and he shook his head, realizing that the odd incidents so close together had him spooked and suspicious. 

As he walked away down the road, a few dozen yards away, he came across something in the middle of the road. He leaned down to study it. The pigs' tails with mud and grass around them!



Had they carried the pigs down the center of the road by the tail?  

The walker stood back up, took a deep breath and told himself that perhaps some kind of odd predator was afoot, and he was just seeing its feeding ground. It was certainly not looking like a roadkill situation, at all! 

As he walked away, the walker's mind churned the dilemma. The pigs were not eaten. They were messed with, but they were no signs of predators feasting. The snake spines were articulated and intact. The other odd spine had no head or other bones anywhere around....

Bones could be scattered by wildlife, right? But, oddly none of these creatures seemed to be killed and picked apart there, but placed and within a day's time, one item was missing, another placed....

The walker picked up his pace, certain that an explanation existed because to think otherwise was to let something dark into his peaceful countryside. He might have convinced himself it was all something natural, that is, until the next day....

(***New installment next Wednesday to this real-life chilling puzzle, entitled "Dem Bones"***)

The Urban Sasquatch Journal: Original Experiment Journal


Episode 2
"The Original Experiment"


This is the first of a running series on Ghost Hunting Theories chronicling a present-day Sasquatch experiment utilizing techniques employed by this researcher over a decade ago in a completely different location at an habituation site. 

Today, the researcher's ongoing study is being performed in an urban setting in the southern half of the US, hundreds of miles from the original site and the results are amazingly similar. 


During the series, I will be sharing the evolution of these experiments and their results from his journal.

**Link to Episode 1**


NOTE

I like to emphasize the need for all sites to be kept secret and all researchers, as well, in order to keep them valid and untainted, as well as to protect the Sasquatch and the researchers in a field that is often fraught with bogus researchers and sometimes even thugs. 



The Researcher

The researcher is a 63-year-old male with a military background who has worked in construction the majority of his life. He is exceedingly well versed and read on the subject of Sasquatch and prefers time in the field to sitting at a desk. His foray into the field was in 2000 and he remained active in the field until 2006 when he took a hiatus and came back again a year ago. He has been involved in several habituation sites over the years. He is not a hunter and does not wish to harm any creatures in the woods. He is an outdoorsman, who enjoys fishing, camping and hiking. His objective is not to prove the existence of Sasquatch, but to experience one-on-one interactions and make them comfortable with showing themselves for him to have a face-to-face. All in all, in one way or another, he has been following the mystery of Sasquatch for 14 years. After being called back into the field again by some who needed assistance, he has put himself back into the study avidly and utilizing skills he learned in the early 2000s at a habituation site (the one I will share with his journal below).


The Original Experiment

The experiments began in a time when the Internet was not filled with tons and tons of Sasquatch groups and interests in 2003. It was done quietly and respectfully on a private property adjoining large sanctuary lands that made an ideal situation for habituation. 

And, it all began with some tires left in the woods nearby. 


January 2003

The experiment began when a nearby landowner found a group of tires in the a wildlife area adjoining his property. He stacked the tires and left the area. At a later visit, they had been moved into some trees in that area.

This also included footprints on the muddy trail in front of the trees. This took place in January 2003.


The landowner brought in some friends to research with him, a group who showed curiosity, outdoors skills, and wisdom and they decided to move the project onto his land to see if the Sasquatch might come onto his adjoining property and move tires there.

In late February 2003, this nearby landowner placed out four old tires they had on a trail on his property.  The result was the four tires ended up in the trees on his property, like what had happened over at the protected lands (see below journal).



- Researcher's notes and journal begin -

NOTE:  Green highlighter is identifying the "changed" arrangement, assumed to be done by the Sasquatch on the property. Non-highlighted means the researchers did this step.


January 2003 - begins with stack of tires left out.



Date:  01/11/2003 
Location: (in wildlife preserve adjoining landowner's property)
Event: Tire #1 found on tree break. This first tire at the “Y” of the trail. 






Date:  01/11/2003
Location:  (in adjoining wildlife preserve to landowner's property)
Event:  Tire #2 in another tree in the crook of the tree.  There are prints on the trail in front of the tree






(note property owner's raised hand fully stretched out to show height of tire in tree)


Date:  01/11/2003
Location:  (in adjoining wildlife preserve to landowner's property)
Event:  Tire #3 is in another tree approximately 10 feet north of Tire #2.





Date: 02/01/2003
Location:  (in adjacent wildlife preserve to landowner's property)
Event:  3 tires stacked!  Are they playing a game?




In late February 2003, they moved the experiment onto the landowner's property -




Date:  02/28/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)
EventTire #1 (of 4 found in consecutive trees north to south).




Date: 02/28/2003
Location: (Landowner's property)
Event:  Tire #2 (of 4)






Date: 02/28/2003
Location: (Landowner's property)
Event:  Tire #3 (of four) found in trees.






Date:  02/28/2003
Location:  (landowner's property) 
Event:  Tire #4 (of 4 tires) found in tree.







Date:  02/28/2003
Location:  (***Wildlife preserve adjoining landowner's property)
Event:  I had previously stacked these 5 tires approximately 30 feet from where now located. I left them here like this. I came back, 04/12/2003 and found only 3 of the 5 tires.







Date:  03/29/2003
Location: (landowner's property)
Event: I took these tires out of the trees and restacked to see what would happen (something would happen later).  I added long limb with tire tube.







Date:  04/12/2003
Location:  (landowner's property) 
Event:  Today we moved the tires from the stump near the landowner's big pond to the west side of the creek near a tree break.  We put up a new formation and chained the tires to a small tree.







Date:  04/12/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)
Event:  This formation, I set up. The last time I looked (05/10/2003) it was still intact, as is, without any new happening.






Date: 04/24/2003
Location:  (landowner's property) 
Event:  The tires had been chained around the small tree. The tree was broken approximately 3-4 feet off the ground.  This photo shows another look at the break and new location of tires in this formation. The chain is still around the tires, directly in back of the tree, close to the creek. Also, you see a wrapper from sweets that the landowners had been placing for the BFs.







Date:  04/24/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)  
Event:  Here is a close look at the new formation of tires.  Again, this was not set up by us and is behind the tree it was chained to.







Date: 04/30/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)  
Event:  Two other researchers placed these tires on this tall stump. It may have been 8 feet tall. My old sweat shirt was put on the top of the tree stump over the tires.








Date: 05/10/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)  
Event:  As you can see the, tires, limb, tire tube, and chain have been moved to this spot, 25 to 30 feet from the destroyed large stump. This is the same formation I used on a trail near the large pond across this creek. This is not mine or my co-researcher's setups above.






Date: 05/11/2003
Location: (landowner's property)
Event:  The night before, a researcher on the team put 2 honey buns on the tire formation, one between the tires and chain, another on the tire tube.  The next morning, the tires had been slightly adjusted, and the honey buns were gone. One wrapper is on the ground to the left. The other wrapper is across the creek.






Date: 05/21/2003
Location: (landowner's property)
Event:  Tires are now in a new formation, with my limb stuck through the tires and chain.









Date: 05/22/2003
Location: (landowner's property)
Event:  This new setup with tires, chain, 2 bed frame pieces, and beach ball done by another researcher on the team.








Date: 05/26/2003
Location:  (landowner's property) 
Event:  The tires and chain formation two researcher places, which was nailed to the tree has been torn off and placed where seen in photo. The beach ball was taken out of the tire and placed on the ground.  Note: In the photo, there is a small tree break with the tire tube on the limbs. Tires with chain, beach ball, wash tub, 2 chairs.







Date: 05/26/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)
Event:  A close-up photo of prior photo with tires, chain, limb and bed frame pieces.






Date: 06/01/2003
Location: (landowner's property) 
Event:  Tires were disturbed overnight. They are chained to a small but tough Bois D’arc tree. The chair in the background had a monkey doll on it. It’s now gone!







Date: 06/05/2003
Location: (landowner's property) 
Event:  Formation knocked over? Cows? Camo poncho and “Wilson” (painted face on soccer ball) on ground also.







Date:  06/05/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)
Event:  Another look at the tire formation, a different position. The back tire was on top of the two, perpendicular with “Wilson” in the tire hole with the camo poncho around the tire.






Date:  06/05/2003
Location: (landowner's property)
Event:  I put up this new formation along the landowner's fence line.  Nothing happened to this formation. I moved them at a later date.






Date: 06/07/2003
Location: (landowner's property)
Event: After being missing for a week, the mirror and tires with chain were returned to the clearing area not far from my deer feeder. Pretty good formation. 





Date: 06/07/2003
Location: (landowner's property) 
Event:  I set up this new formation. This is a new group of tires just brought from the original adjacent wildlife land.







Date: 06/07/2003
Location: (landowner's property)
Event:  Again, my own setup. I restacked tires on one another. I put the T-stick in it with blue bowl hangers and adding an empty ale bottle on a small branch of a tree.






Date: 06/10/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)
Event:  Tire formation from prior photos, moved to this new position, not by us.







Date: 06/10/2003
Location:  (landowner's property)

Conclusion


These interactions back for a year's time show a consistent play back and forth that at times seems to have no rhyme or reason, and at other times seems to send a message. The tires being stacked with the items put inside shows a sign of saying, "hey, take your junk and get out of here." When the tires are moved from a garden that provides food, they are saying essentially, "no trash in the garden." When the lantern is turned off and the set up is urinated on, it seems to say, "Don't endanger my forest." 

The addition of colored tires was a unique research concept to see if, in fact, color makes a difference to them. The researchers did note the red usually needed to connect with the earth and one thing we have come to know from habituation interactions is that Sasquatch can often times be rather OCD, liking things done in a certain order or symmetry, but at times these tires are just tossed across the hillside.  At other times, they seem to stack according to size in a neat and logical manner to support the stack. 


The turning point seemed to be the chaining of the tires to the tree. The Sasquatch had run off with tires before and brought them back (perhaps hiding them somewhere else, hoping the researchers would find them?), but they did not seem to value them as a play tool. 

The addition of other useful items to the arrangements was a nice touch, to see if the Sasquatch might take off with something, but they seemed to appreciate that they were having a back and forth with the researchers, a safer form of communication. Other than the stuffed monkey, it would appear all items were accounted for. 

Were they aware of the cameras? Yes, they were. This is why the researchers brought out a door mirror in hopes of capturing them behind the cameras, creeping up. 

The team showed innovation before its time and willingness to adapt experiments for new knowledge. You will see this dynamic at a rapid pace in next week's posting about the urban location and the weekly reportings of the adapting experiments. Some of what we will learn will shock and amaze, from the urban location to the reaction to the interactions. 

One thing I must comment on is that, if you lived next door to an elderly man who feels compelled to wave and chit chat when you are in the front yard, that does not mean all elderly neighbors are this way. Thus, we must take experiments with an individual or individuals do not represent all of their race. What we can learn is their degree of desire to interact and how their intelligence and adaptability to a change in game plan are assimilated.

Next week begins the new present-day journal entries at the urban Sasquatch location.  The original experiment inspired the desire to establish interaction in the new location, but it was a set of tires that broke the silence and began a series of amazing interactions.  

Are City Sasquatch smarter or just more adept at understanding human or just more used to understanding human behavior? 

The series will come in installments every Tuesday here at Ghost Hunting Theories, as the researcher shares his journal, his revelations, and his expectations. I am excited to bring you the developing studies, as it has always been my desire to show what goes on behind the scenes in the world of Sasquatch research.


***Tomorrow is the first episode of The Stalker Between the Worlds series of a real-life macabre and terrifying interaction between a man and an unknown predator.***
