I would like to thank SRA and Cori for their support.

I appreciate the fact that Cori took the time to review the book for her blog. It was very kind of her to do so - thanks Cori.

I appreciate also the fact that Andy put an announcement for the book on the slider on the front page. How cool is that - thanks Andy.

SRA alert,

 

How to Find Bigfoot Vol.3 is ready for your perusing. Here is the link - Amazon.com, and be sure to tell others.

 

I should probably mention, in case it was not understood prior – if any of you guys have any questions, issues, disagreements, need of clarifications, or suggestions on how I could have done better, you can let me know, and I will do the best I can to answer. I thought Vol.2, for example, might arouse some discussion amongst the group; whether it was the inline stepping, conclusions about stick structures, wood knocks, or what infrasound does to the body. I want to be a positive reflection of the SRA, and I would much appreciate any feedback. By the way, positive comments are also welcome. :)

 

 

Enjoy,

Randy

Sorry, I didn't see this sooner, Randy.  I'm wiped now.  I'll get a post up on the main page tomorrow.

 

As for critiquing it, I'll have to read it fully first. So far, I've only had time to scan it.  I'm having a hard time keeping my head above water right now, but giving you a full review is definitely on my list of things I want to accomplish.

I have read all three volumes. They are all written very well. Randy does a great job, but shows his opinion in volume three as to what he believes bigfoot is. I personally don't completely agree. I feel that it is a species all of its own. Neither human nor ape. But a great series to read with some very very good insight.

I read volume 1; it was a great read -- lots of informative stuff.  I didn't know that the midtarsal break in Sasquatch's foot means the front part of the foot can bend down giving better traction when running and assist in climbing trees, and it can splay it's toes like we can splay our fingers to get better traction on slippery surfaces.  I recently read a critical review of Bigfoot evidence in which the author criticized the non-uniformity of foot casts, mentioning some show splayed toes while others did not.  It also mentioned different casts show from two to six toes.  That article also attacked the Patterson Gimlin film claiming the proportions of the creature fits human proportions, unlike your writing.  So, the critic is an example of people who have a bias and go to ridiculous lenghs to make data conform to that bias and your synopsis of Bigfoot's physic is a well acknowledged fact. 

 

I some things you might reconsider though, I doubt the very light colored skin on the bottoms of the feet in the Patterson film is due to callouses and soils.  Darker skinned human races from India, Africa, etc., tend to have lighter soles and palms.

 

Also, I've seen the hand of a Bigfoot up close when it tried to still a fish off of the stringer I was carrying.  The Bigfoot was laying on the ground and in the moonlight I saw a view of his right hand turned sideways (thumb and forefinger facing up) and it looked very much like a human hand with opposable thumb.  The hand was about 4 inches from my leg, and when I looked down he froze it in place, and as I turned and looked at the arm, his arm from the elbow to the hand was as long as my entire arm.

Would you mind submitting your encounter as a report?  I'd love to interview you about it and get it on the site.

The incident occurred in my very early twenties in North Carolina when I was fishing at night with five or six of my friends.  I've posted the report at another site before.  If I did submit a report here I would want to re-write it and submit details that I left out of my previous report.  We had started fishing during the daylight hours and had not brought flashlights with us which I believe contributed to the length of the encounter which lasted for several hours of it occasionally screaming and throwing rocks. At one point during that encounter I hit il with a rock, which was a grand mistake of my ignorant youth.

Yeah, I'd really like to hear that full story.  One thing we do that few others do, it audio interviews,  Essentially, with your permission, I record our phone interview and post you telling your story in your own words.  This allows everyone to hear the witness's voice and fully understand why the researcher chose to publish the report.  Yours sounds like it would make a great oral telling.

To be clear, are you wanting both a written and an oral report?

 

As far as an opposable thumb on Bigfoot, as I'm reading up on that it seems to be from hand casts, and there have only been a small number of hand casts ever made.  An opposable thumb is a thumb that is able to bend under the palm and is on a different plain than the fingers whereas a non-opposable thumb is on the same plain as the fingers and is like another finger.

 

I don't claim any expertise in this field, but if I pushed my hand against dirt to make an impression it would push my thumb back onto the same plain as my fingers and I wonder if whomever made that determination for the hand casts is failing to take that into account.  From what I saw, the side view of a right hand (thumb and forefinger side) you would think was very similar to a human hand except it was large and attached to a five foot long hairy arm.  The thumb was NOT on the same plain as the fingers.

 

Considering that man and all apes (Gorillas, Chimpanzees, and Orangutans, etc.) and primates all have opposable thumbs, how in the world did Bigfoot miss out on it?  Does that make any sense?  While reading up on it I saw a number of Bigfoot articles repeating the statement that Bigfoot might not have an opposable thumb.  There must not be any good photos of their hands, but I looked down at a hand about 4 inches from my knee which means I saw It within 4 feet away.  Moonlight lit the ground underneath and I saw a sharp image of the outline of the hand.

Ideally, you would submit a written report.  You can make it very detailed, or just cover the highlights.  Then I'd call you and interview you, taping the interview.  We'll hit all the details in the oral interview.  I have also had witnesses whom, for various reasons, could not do a written report at all.  In those cases I just call them and interview them, then I write out the written portion based on the interview (being very clear that I am doing the writing) and post the audio of the interview. It is really up to you.  We are mostly interested in collecting the encounter reports, the more evidence we have and share, the better.  :)

 

I to believe they have an opposable thumb. In 2006, Kris and I found a set of knuckle prints in the soft sand by our fire.  You could clearly see the four finger prints and one round thumb print in opposition to the fingers.  From what I have seen and read though (and the print I found also bore this out), their thumb is shorter proportionally to their fingers than our thumb is compared to our fingers.  I think that his may be why some claim it is not opposable.
