I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

Well, if you have a little time on your hands this March 21st, and have always wanted to get into the woods and look for bigfoot yourself, or not by yourself but with a guided tour that also includes lessons in wilderness survival, gathering evidence and facing predators while hobnobbing with some of the big names in Bigfoot research. Here is your chance.

Here is some info on the March 21st expedition.
The trip will be based at our research property at the west end of lake Crecent, between Port Angeles and Forks WA.  The cost of the trip is $ 400.00  tax included.  We will be camping on site.  There is shelter there if the weather is a factor.  We have a cabin, and three out buildings on site, as well as a large wall tent with a wood stove.  There is also a camper available.  We have a large building with a wood stove seating area, bathroom, and cook station.  There is also a large outdoor fire pit.
Dr Jeff Meldrum will be present the entire trip, giving a presentation, and in field hiking and tracking with us. There is also a possibility that Finding Bigfoot’s Cliff Barackman will be there as well.  Will keep you updated on that.  He usually comes on these trips.
We will be giving 7 classes during this trip, including, DNA evidence gathering, wilderness survival, facing predators, back pack preparedness, track casting, proper evidence documentation and survival shelter construction.  You will come away from these trips educated and more prepared to spend time in the woods.  In short, we teach researchers and enthusiasts how to be better prepared, and how to conduct more effective field research.  There will also be ample field time, on and off trail hiking, and night operations.
You will need to supply your own food, and camping supplies.  There will be a couple community meals as well.  We always have extra everything, so don’t stress if you need anything.  Let me know early if supplies are a problem and we will see to your needs.
There is a trail system that touches our property.  We leave there on our field excursions on foot.  This property is located right in the middle of our core research area.  That’s why we obtained it.  There have been sightings here, and multiple audio recordings captured as well.  On top of that, it’s a beautiful place.  It’s located right off HWY 101, but there are no neighboring properties.  Mt Muller literally springs up right out of the back of the property.
The trip begins on Friday, March 21st.  Attendees should arrive as early in the day as they can.  There will be a meet and greet Friday mid day, and field time Friday afternoon with night work as well.  Saturday will be infield classes, hiking and tracking.  Saturday evening will be a presentation with Dr Meldrum, and then night operations.  Sunday morning will be more field time, and a couple more classes.  The expedition will end Sunday afternoon.
These are very comprehensive trips.You will come away from this with new skills to use with your research, new friends, lots of time with Dr Meldrum, tired legs and a smile on your face.  And just maybe, an encounter with a Sasquatch.  Your guides Derek Randles and James Million have a combined 60 years of experience in the wilderness.  We will teach you well, while keeping you safe.
If this trip sounds good, please let me know and I will reserve you a spot and get you billing instructions, and a needs list.
Thank you,
Derek Randles

Hey, I will do everything possible to be there. Of course this is only an hour drive from where I live so that is no biggie. But if you do decide to come out to the land of Twilight to do a little bigfoot hunting, feel free to contact me at…

    Digging for a bit of info about Randles expedition, I found your site.
    I will be there, and will be interested in hearing how you might broach the inclusion of ‘alien’ involvement in the BF mystery.

  • IThinkso

    Or at the core, devils involvement in the ‘alien’, ‘BF’ mystery.

    Good fun and exercise I suppose for those with time on their hands and $400.00 to blow. By the way, did the expedition turn up a Bigfoot? (I’m talking about a real Bigfoot, not easily hoaxed howls and tree knocks). I’ll take a wild guess and say no.

    I wouldn’t waste my time or $400 either. it’s just a money making scam!

  • Mark “Knuckles” Chisholm

    Nice to see you posting again John. Have you uncovered anything interesting since we last talked?
