No camera on my iphone back then, but how I wish I had one because he was a dead ringer for Ernest T. Bass.

Cervelo obviously forgot the phone call where we discussed it, we had several, thinking it was really Autumn Williams posing as her subject on the BFF. I told him that it definitely wasn't Autumn after my trip, just a pitiful schizoid type person IMO. After that, I lost interest.

We never discussed you meeting Creekfreak, your either in error or lying.

Pretty sure there's never been an IPhone that didn't have a camera....care to try again?

Dude, we had several conversations via phone about the book Autumn wrote and I told you about my conference in Tampa. When I got back I told you about meeting this Creekfreak guy. I'm definitely not mistaken.

Fact of the matter is, I used to travel a good bit for my job and to visit family. If something bigfoot related happens to be on my route I'll stop and check things out. As you can see I'm batting zero so far. Creekfreak has mental health issues, the skeleton in Selma was about 5'9" instead of 7 feet tall, and I saw no vehicles that I thought might be there in the Ouachitas.

I have nothing to be embarrassed about, I can certainly see why you have plenty to be embarrassed about. Sorry your imagination/fantasy got the best of you...we were never friends.

So you're in the habit of calling people to talk bigfoot gossip with non friends? You used to call on a regular basis back then but if you want to act like it never happened that's fine with me. Pitiful......

Please name "his tiny town", or give an approximate location. You were driving from South Carolina to Tampa, FL. You cut across the middle of Florida (central) and met Creekfreak. Where was that, and go look at a map right now if you have to.
There was no town where I stopped to have lunch so I have no idea where Creekfreak was actually from.

We've only talked once, I wouldn't consider that on a regular basis.
But this is a great example of your flawed memory maybe your mixing me up with one of your other internet "friends". I would suggest you seek medical help for your memory issues, you've clearly demonstrated on this fourm on numerous occasions how inaccurate your memory is or maybe rein in your fantasy world a little.

It doesn't make sense. One really can't make sense out of Jodie Stories. They are all the same. They don't make any sense because they are fiction. That's the only thing that does make sense. Everything falls into place nicely when you realize that she is making up all of these stories.

In my head I can see the mods gettin' all shaky and nervous not knowing what to do in this thread. It's not all OT. The discussion is about some encounter in a tiny Florida stop with a notorious Internet freak but it's by another member. Oh GAWD! What to do, what to do?! They're <gasp> talking about that other member <gasp> and that's against the <gasp> rules. But she started it with her Tales By Jodie® segment every Tuesday. Darnit anyway! <shaky>

But seriously, on my card Jodie's got 89, The Rest of You only 86. She did a whip around reverse pike insinuation followed by a pound town upper right rebuttal (without flinching) that put her over the top I think. Though the other judges might not see it that way. They might have been thrown off when she repulsed Philadelphia, but she hardly ever does that anymore in her bouts. She's maturing as a fighter and is becoming a real contender. Wait, what were we talking about?

A Creekfreak non photo related claim, it's right OT.

You've offered zero evidence any such meeting ever took place. You have a history of making baseless unsupported claims on a regular basis.
What I find interesting/entertaining is the similarities to other woo/baseless claims you've made, they range from very dramatic claims, past life memories, accusations directed at members, cougar killing a deer in someone's backyard, to lesser claims about trips, imagined intenet relationships.
The best part is how your stories morph when challenged, your IPhone with no camera was particularly funny. But I will give credit where credit is due, you do a great job of offering just enough info to illicit a challenge to your claim and then the "game" begins....well played.

By indicating that you passed through "his tiny town", you either knew the name of the town he lived in or assumed/was told that the town you stopped to have lunch in was 'his town".

Now I'm really confused.

First you say you were passing thru his tiny town and stopped to have lunch then say there was no town where you stopped to have lunch. Then you say you have no idea where Creekfreak lived after stating twice you knew where he lived. Then you say you had an iPhone with no camera which, after people bringing up to you that this is not correct, your story morphs into having two phones and that your flip phone didn't have a camera.

What gives?

In Texas, I've been through a few "tiny town[s]" that consist of not much more than a couple of gas stations and a Dollar General, indistinguishable from no town at all.

Everyone knows I'm not techy AT ALL. I regularly forget how to post photos on this forum. Most of the time I toss out my stories because it might be interesting to someone who reads them not because I expect to have to prove something that isn't particularly important, or at least not IMO. I My meeting with a guy that called himself Creekfreak was simply to confirm what everyone already thought about him anyway. I might be mistaken but I don't generally find a need to lie about things I've done, experienced, or what my perception of those experiences might be. It is what is, believe it or not, your choice.

[quote=Gamolon;12259642]By indicating that you passed through "his tiny town", you either knew the name of the town he lived in or assumed/was told that the town you stopped to have lunch in was 'his town". [quote/]

If you turn off the main 95 at Jacksonville you have to travel about 170+ miles across Florida before you link back up with a main artery like 75. I passed an exit sign with his town's name on it. I didn't see any place to stop there so I kept going. I do remember stopping after I got through Ocala, but not specifically where I stopped, eight years after the fact. That's where the guy hauling a boat with Creekfreak stenciled on the side showed up.


[quote]Again, you indicate that either you knew where he lived or assumed/was told that the town you stopped in to have lunch was where he lived.[quote]

Sorry, it's been a long time, I can't remember what was said about the fruit stand or where it was supposed to be to even argue the point.


[quote]Now I'm really confused.

First you say you were passing thru his tiny town and stopped to have lunch then say there was no town where you stopped to have lunch. Then you say you have no idea where Creekfreak lived after stating twice you knew where he lived. Then you say you had an iPhone with no camera which, after people bringing up to you that this is not correct, your story morphs into having two phones and that your flip phone didn't have a camera.[quote/]

It was a work trip, I hate flying, so I was using the iphone to navigate. It never occurred to me to use my work iphone to take a pic. My personal phone was a go phone. Even if I had thought to use the camera on the the iphone I wouldn't have asked this man if I could take a pic of him.

My thinking that I knew where Creekfreak lived was based on a discussion in a thread on another forum eight years ago. I don't remember where or how I got the idea that he lived near a fruit stand in rural Florida. I don't recall this guy ever really saying where he lived when I was on the BFF.

What gives? I wasn't impressed with Creekfreak, thought he was odd, made it a fast lunch, left , and promptly dismissed the whole incident until someone mentioned him here on this thread.

Having "Creek Freak" in some form on a boat would not be that unusual. It's a fairly common term among kayakers, paddlers, white water types, etc.

It's the "Everybody Knows" fallacy.

Also called:

* Argumentum ad populum

Because 'everyone knows' Jodie isn't techy, we should just give her a pass on her claim that the Iphone didn't have a camera...

I My meeting with a guy that called himself Creekfreak was simply to confirm what everyone already thought about him anyway. I might be mistaken but I don't generally find a need to lie about things I've done, experienced, or what my perception of those experiences might be. It is what is, believe it or not, your choice.
The only thing "everyone" knows is your inability to support your baseless claims.
