Here is an article that looks to be making the play that the Eastern Bigfoot or Skunk Ape is different than the regular Bigfoot of the PNW. http://frontiersofzoology.blogspot.c...pe-tracks.html

You might recognize Gordon Mullett, I did, from the Leigh Hart video of the Ohio Bigfoot Conference, when Mullet said, he never saw one of those in a Walmart, as he squeezed and offered Leigh a bag of Bigfoot feces.

Here is the Leigh Hart video , at 10:46 the Gordon Mullet part starts

I'd just like to pop in and say that Northern Lights has kept his word and held up his part of the bargain.

That is an example of a Chiasm, which is a literary device, not logic.

It is the strongest form: A-B-B-A. Another example, with a weaker form is A-B-A-C: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Chiasms are like poetry or a song, and are used by charlatans like preachers. An augmented form has rhymes like the A-B-A-C form "The Bible says Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve".

Anyone can make them up. Control your emotions, before your emotions control you. A-B-B-A.

Harry, you made me laugh thanks in a post above. Hello to everyone.

I'm in the promised land on another Roger Patterson re-creation and it's already one for the record books. When I get back I'm taking my 'dozer 38 miles into the wilderness hauling fuel, ATCO units, and equipment for the gold miner I expedited for last winter. He's into the gold. So hopefully we'll see bigfoot.

Why people have to BLAARG is beyond me. I'm gonna be back out where an outfit abandoned a quarter million dollars of stuff, a whole turnkey operation a few miles from my buddy just because the main dude died getting it out there. And in the meantime, I'm going to stay out of a third world hell-hole prison for my mom, but just barely. The trick is, like black holes, riding the event horizon without being sucked in and stretched out like a noodle.

The excitement, the glory, romance, the risks and bone-chilling fear in BLAARGING like NL's story of X and Y with the bones and all...

too much for an old man.

ABP are you in Thailand? Where are you? Last I heard you were in the Philippines fighting ISIS or something.

ABBA has been controlling my emotions for decades. Frida, specifically.

Greetings to you and welcome back to the promised land (say compared to third world prisons). Your sense of humor is one of the things I've really missed. Stick around if you can but first get the hell out of Dodge Phnom Penh Mindanao.

Due to the latest Deep South deep freeze, shouldn't there be frozen footies turning up all over the place? Maybe the deep state is hiding them.

But he was so young. I bet it was from a broken heart for having never found the beast. If only he coulda held on a little longer to look a little further. RIP guy who's terrible at hide and seek.
