The backstory (updated March 2021):
On the night of August 17 2020, I experienced an unexpected encounter with what I believe to be a group of Sasquatch at a location in Central Virginia.
After reviewing all of the evidence and doing some thinking, I felt like the event was not an accident – I was sitting still, alone in a field, inviting contact with whomever might be listening, and they responded.
At no time during the evening did I feel threatened or afraid, and I was very excited about the potential contact with them.
Following that encounter, I went back to the location on a number of occasions during daylight hours, and every time I was there, I continued to experience evidence of their presence – there were pops, clicks, trilling, unexplained vocals, wood knocks, footsteps, gigantic footprints, and other things that seemed to indicate that they were close by. When I moved through the forest, these sounds and activities accompanied me on my hikes.
Over the years, I have seen and experienced enough amazing things to know that it’s a mistake to eliminate all of the possibilities of this great big universe in favor of a small set of explanations that fit our belief systems.
I also know that there is MUCH more to our existence, and the existence of everything that surrounds us, than what most people think.
Whatever is going on here in my little corner of the world (as well as in thousands of places elsewhere) deserves to be explored with an open mind and the utmost respect, so I began to formulate a plan.
Initially, my plan was to go out to this location one night a week for the eight weeks between late September and mid November (2020), in an attempt to initiate further contact and gain a better understanding of what was happening. As part of this effort, I set up multiple gifting and sharing sites, worked on cleaning up trash left behind by other people, and continued to approach any communications with the respect and courtesy that I would offer to anyone else that I had just met.
I was able to move forward with my plan as intended for a couple of weeks, and then I experienced some unexpected things. First and foremost, I became even more aware that, as suspected, the mystery of Sabe (a Native term of respect for these Beings) was much bigger and more complex than I was prepared for, even with an open mind and extensive experience with what most would call “the paranormal”. Secondly, I ran into a problem that I should have foreseen, but in my enthusiasm, overlooked entirely – the arrival of hunting season coincided with my planned night time forays, and here in my location, the local hunting traditions are comprised of running deer with dogs at all hours of the day and night. Needless to say, this became a HUGE issue, as there was nowhere I could go that I did not run into howling packs of dogs, armed hunters, and terrified wildlife. It was definitely not an environment conducive to making peaceful contact with elusive beings by the light of the moon, so I backed off my plan for my regular excursions after two failed attempts and decided to wait until after the season went out on January 2.
While I was waiting on hunting season to conclude, I worked on this mystery from other aspects, and I learned some surprising things. One of the most profound was the fact that the night in August 2020 when I first became consciously aware of the contact with these beings was NOT the first time I had been in their presence. It turns out they have been with me and around me for years, but their behavior was not “classic Bigfoot” during that time, and so I didn’t connect the dots. It wasn’t until they announced their presence with a series of “wood knocks” on August 17 that my brain said “Wood knocks! That’s a Sasquatch!”. And then I felt really dumb when I realized that all of the OTHER activity from that night (chatter, howls, footsteps, orbs and figures caught on video, etc.) matched perfectly with what I had been experiencing for years. It just took them communicating by banging a stick on a tree for me to link it all together. Once I realized this, I started pulling archived video, pictures, and field notes from dozens of previous experiences dating back to 2015. The more I looked, the more consistencies I found, and the more I found, the more apparent the pattern became – I began to realize that I had notes dating back more than 25 years which documented the same type of experiences. I was absolutely blown away once I aligned the common denominators of the events under the new lens of “this is Sasquatch activity”. And again, I felt more than a little dense for not seeing it before. However, despite my chagrin, my enthusiasm was off the charts because of my discovery – I had so much to learn!
And so that’s what I did from October thru December, since my plan for night time excursions was vexed by the locals – I researched, I meditated, I attempted contact through consciousness rather than physical proximity, I continued to review all of my historical information from other events & experiences, and I came out the other side convinced that my earlier suspicions from the Fall of 2020 were correct – these beings are NOT “big dumb animals” – they are a highly intelligent race of people who posses unique abilities that we do not yet understand, including the ability to manipulate space-time in such a way that they can “pop in and out” of a given location in an instant. They are capable of communicating in what might be called “mind speak” (telepathy) and appear to be linked to what has often been labeled as UFO activity. They seem to be able to shift their form from the gigantic, hairy being that we are all familiar with to things such as small glowing lights. They appear to be capable of manipulating light so that they can blend in with their environment, literally invisible, save for a “shimmering” of the air when they move. I have personally experienced ALL of these things in the many years that I have been documenting unusual phenomenon, but without a common factor to link it all together, I assumed it was all unrelated at a causal level. I couldn’t have been more erroneous in my thinking.
So now that the woods are clear of howling dogs & gun-toting hunters and the local wildlife population can breathe a sigh of relief and resume a less stressful existence and I can get back to my solitary nights in the wilderness and attempts at close proximity contact, especially since the days are warming and the nights are not quite so bitter. It’s March now, and I’ve been trekking out into the woods at every opportunity the past couple of weeks, taking advantage of the lengthening days to revisit not only familiar sites, but to explore new ones recently discovered. As spring approaches, you can bet that I will be out there as much as I can stand, learning, documenting, and sharing what I find.
Might this go bad? Sure it might – as usual, I am running headlong into uncharted territory, and I have no idea what might transpire along the way. And honestly, I am OK with that. It’s more important to me to do my best to try and understand what is happening with these beings than to sit safely in my living room.
And notice that nowhere in here did I mention that I would be providing “evidence of their existence”. That’s redundant. We already HAVE the evidence. What we need to do now is move forward and stop chasing our tails over the question of “whether they exist or not”. We already KNOW they exist.
However, I WILL be providing a record of what transpires during my attempts at contact with these Beings. I will document the experiences as best I can, and will provide followers/viewers with my opinion of what it all means. Any “evidence” captured as a result of these interactions will be presented in the context in which it was gathered – as a record of the event, and NOT “proof” that they exist.
