This whole topic gives me the willies. Especially Bigfoot.

A bunch of these get creepy, especially if you look to when the database started about 7-8 years ago.

I haven't really read them in quite awhile, but I used to stay up at the office late at night reading sighting and really freaking myself out (very large corporate office, all lights off, usually the last one there).


Glad to know I'm not the only Sasquatch freak here. I have a couple Bigfoot books, filled with personal eyewitness encounters from various people, that I would stay up late and read at night years ago. Once story involved two creatures that had tormented a family out in Cali. The family had a giant water tank in the backyard and they would hear the metal hose clanging against the metal at all hours of the night, and would catch the creatures drinking from it. It also had killed some of their dogs in very gruesome fashion. Freaked my ass out.

Gotta find those books... :shock:

Fries, your dad was an Air Force Capitan & couldn't identify it. I served in Naval Intelligence & and never even heard of anything like it. The more I think about it, the more I think there has to be something to these sightings.......

.......oh, and thanks you guys for another sleepless night :?

You've peaked my interest for your Bigfoot stories, Superfly! I was reading that the Florida Skunk Ape has done the same thing, killed cats and dogs in peoples yards. Yeah, that's spooky.....Myself, along with a couple of buddies, have gone urban exploring to some abandoned buildings out in the Everglades several times, and now I feel I've got to be real careful out there!

Have any of you ever seen The Legend of Boggy Creek?

I haven't in years, but I remember it completely freaked me out for some reason...

haha my brothers used to mess with me using the Boggy Creek story, great reference! :lol:

My Bigfoot (or whatever it was) encounters are definitely a little freaky, more so because I never really saw anything...which messes with your imagination. But what we heard, and experienced... :shock:...no doubt in my mind it was something abnormal. Anyone heard of the Missouri Momo?

you know, its crazy - typing that out in my last post, just thinking about what happened actually gave me goosebumps. Seriously. It has been almost 15 years(!) and it still freaks me out.

Yep, MoMo scared the crap out of me as a kid (the stories did). I remember one where kids were playing in their yard in midday and they looked up and Momo was standing at their back fence.

I have a ton of bigfoot/monsters/unexplained stuff books and dvds, including Boggy Creek which still creeps me out. I was driving through Ark. in the beginning of August thinking about that the whole way...

A good friend lives in Conroe, Tx. which has had sightings, and I'd stay with him near the Sam Houston Nat. Forest and just sit there at night listening to all the sounds in the woods (his house was about 1 mile from the closest neighbor and was in a clearing in the middle of the woods.

Back in my 20s I'd often drive between Lubbock and Houston or Lubbock and San Antonio around 2am-dawn, and my imagination would frequently go nuts on those backroads where you're driving for 100s of miles in the dark wooded areas without seeing another soul. I would almost panic just thinking about breaking down in such a place, more scared of the threat of Bigfoot than anything else. ;)

J.

PS I also remember seeing a movie/documentary when I was 7 years old in Alabama that was making the rounds in movie theaters (1977-78). I don't remember the title, but it was about Bigfoot sightings (and maybe other monsters, I don't remember) and had one sequence where they recreated see him from a distance and just showing his red glowing eyes! I want to see it again bad, but have never figured out what it could be. Anyone have any ideas?

Of course, in this age of CGI effects, whose to say what videos are real & what's fake. I saw several on Youtube that appeared to be CGI effects, but the top two look realistic to me.

Jason...I know the movie you're talking about but I can't think of the name.

Sounds like you've had some pretty cool experiences in some pretty wild places.

I'd love to go out to the NW and hike around and see what I could see...properly armed, of course.

:wink:

Have never seen a bigfoot, but then I've never seen a baby pigeon either . . .

I live in the Seattle area for 12 years and Peter can confirm that you can literally be in the middle of nowhere on a logging road within 30 minutes of civilization. And you pay for the wonderful long summer days with long winter nights. Driving along a road where you can't see the tops of the trees on a dark foggy & misty night can make the hair on your neck stand at attention!

When Harry and the Hendersons was filmed in the Seattle area the scenes where Harry threw the tv at the police cruiser and was in the dumpster was shot a block from my office building. . . That movie is one of my personal favorites for many reasons.

And, now that I'm residing in Oklahoma, there is supposed to be a bigfoot-like creature here in the eastern hills. Probably related to the Texas creature.


Oh, and Peter, that Skull & Bones airship was probably returning to base after dropping off the virgins. You guys were catching the return trip!

Small world, you're an Air Force brat - - - I am to. Lived in Japan, Germany, New Jersey, Illinois, Texas and Oklahoma while my old man did his thing...

I was only an Air Force brat until I was three -- we lived on Pease AFB in New Hampshire (now "Pease International Trade Port" -- it was one of dozens of bases closed during the George H.W. Bush administration :shock: )...

I myself was an air force brat, but while my sisters lived all over the world, and while I was conceived in Greece, once I was born in San Antonio we never left except to spend 1 year in Montgomery, Alabama.

Which wasn't terribly different from Texas except for more trees.

And possibly more Bigfoot.
