The Urban Sasquatch Journal: Getting a Sense of the Vast Terrain


This is a series on Ghost Hunting Theories chronicling a present-day Sasquatch experiment utilizing techniques employed by the 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.

Regional National Forest hike w/ observations
Section 1, Forest Service Road (FSR) hike
Thursday July 23, 2020

I arrived at the trailhead parking area at 4:35pm. Temperature: 94, wind: ENE 8mph.

Sunset is 8:21pm. My goal was to partially hike the main FSR in Section 1. The trail actually starts at a gate at the other end.

The trail ends near my parking location with a raised dirt berm. This is where I started. This was a solo hike and took approximately 85 minutes, 4.5 miles, total, round trip.

On the hike, I noticed 3 side trails off the main FSR trail. These trails went in the direction of private property to the north as I was hiking west to northwest. I hiked 2 of these for a short distance before returning to the main trail. 

I also noticed some possible "BF'sign with the trees along and off the trail. There also seemed to be some 'blind' areas along the trail. I hiked as far as I was comfortable with being by myself. After approximately 45 minutes, I retraced my steps. I made it back to the parking area by 6:45pm.

A fellow researcher lives close to the NF in a community near the lake. I went to his place for a bite to eat and mutual visiting. I stayed at his place until 9pm, then we both drove back to the trailhead parking area. We sat outside our vehicles and listened for any forest activity, vocals, sounds etc. we listened and talked with one another until around 12:30am. We heard distant vocals but nothing close. There was a lot of road traffic during those 3-1/2 hours. We did tree knocks, whoops, and used a bionic ear for far away sounds. There was a lot of Cikada and Gecko chirps etc. it was good to have my friend with me out there. I'm hoping he and I can do more listening, observing and hiking these backwoods areas. At 12:30am we left the area heading for our respective homes.

The Forest Service Road (FSR) trail typically has a short gate at the entry. One parks the vehicle outside the gate then crosses over or around the gate to continue to hike the road. The road trail is wide enough for one vehicle to go one way. At some places along the road trail, the tree lines are close to the trail, other areas have wider space to maneuver in and around.

#1. 4:50pm---parking at the trailhead.

#2. 4:51pm---parking sign at the trailhead.

#3. 4:53pm---Loop 4 hiking trail entry.

#4. 4:57pm---wilderness area sign.

#5. 4:57pm---FSR back entry over dirt berm/mound with a water hole on the road trail.

#6. 5:36pm---this tree was broken off along the intersection of the FSR road trail and the main Loop 4 trail. It was in the direction of the tree break on the trail that back on the morning of May 27, my brother, sister-in-law and I heard 3 possible 'BF' vocals to the right of that trail back to the east, on private property. (refer back to report #10, Wednesday May 27, 2020)

#7. 5:36pm---another view.

#8. 6:13pm---bow overs to make a blind?

#9. 6:14pm---another view.
