This is the anticipated follow up to the video report I posted here.
My eyes have deteriorated and I have trouble seeing photo details in general until my mind correlates what is there. Which usually happens, thankfully. And these are no different except that I can see some of what is gone over in a couple of them. Folks on reddit seem somewhat convinced that this is a cat family but I can see some good stripes in one pic.
But gosh, idk. I do think that there is more evidence for than against, but… I am hopeful. What do my readers think?

This NASA Probe Did A Flyover Of Mars Moon Phobos And Accidentally Detected This
Feb 26, 2021
This NASA probe did a flyover of Mars Moon Phobos and accidentally detected this. Today, we take a look at this interesting discovery made by a NASA probe. In our modern age, a genuine, mind-blowing discovery is seemingly hard to come by. Our ever-expanding knowledge of our planet and the universe means that we are slowly chipping away at the mountain of questions we have about this plane of existence. But every now and then something truly baffling rears its head, something that throws a wrench in the works of everything we thought we knew. These rare discoveries can be found in the strangest of places, leading to great interest from the public as well as the scientific community.
Thank you for watching! Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!
An excellent presentation and completely woo-free. 🙂

UFO caught on night vision cam
Jan 23, 2020
I was testing my nighttime camera to adjust the lens before putting it back on my telescope mount and decided to stick it straight up at the sky since it was a clear night and lo and behold this is what I caught zooming around making crazy turns. I captured this type of activity over two nights. I am not saying it’s aliens. What I am saying is I have no idea what the heck it is. But I do know for a fact that asteroids and comments and space junk doesn’t re-enter earths atmosphere stop and then make a left or a right hand turn before zooming off out of the picture at some ungodly speed. This was taken in New Jersey in January so I am ruling out bugs. Let me know what you think. Space Force

Banned Documentary – Why Bill Gates Switched From Microsoft To Vaccines
February 22, 2021
Why Bill Gates switched from Microsoft to Vaccines is a hard hitting documentary on the untold history of the tech mogul.
The documentary starts with a long suppressed 90s case of Bill Gates bribing to sabotage his rivals and to impose his policy on sovereign nations.
The 90s case is a pivotal moment from where Gates switches to philanthropy with a damage-control makeover with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The documentary also shows Bill Gates agenda in India and how his Polio vaccines resulted in thousands of deaths of tribal girls in India.
It also details various global projects undertaken by Bill Gates which will have a bigger impact in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis.
One of the project is Trust Stamp – a vaccination based digital identity program funded by Bill Gates and implemented by Mastercard and GAVI.
It will soon link your biometric digital identity to your vaccination records. The program said to “evolve as you evolve” is part of the Global War on Cash and has the potential dual use for the purposes of surveillance and “predictive policing” based on your vaccination history.
Those who may not wish to be vaccinated may be locked out of the system based on their trust score.
Another project that works in conjunction is aims to deliver an invisible quantum tattoo hidden in the coronavirus vaccine for storing your vaccination history.
The documentary also details how Bill Gates infiltrated Global Health with his money and his consultant friends exerting tremendous influence in the space of public health and international governance.
This infiltration is managed via British led GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) which has managed to infiltrate India’s healthcare policy-making thereby gaining a strategic position to dictate India’s response to coronavirus.
GAVI is largely led by the British government and Bill Gates. While the UK is GAVI’s largest funder, its implementation follows what is known as the” Gates approach”. Known as the Vaccine Cartel or Pharma Cartel by critics, its vaccines have been accused of causing atleast 38 million premature deaths worldwide.
According to one such study published in a respected journal by the world’s most authoritative vaccine scientists, Bill Gates DTP vaccine killed 10 times more African girls than the disease itself.
The vaccine apparently compromised their immune systems. Although, such study was never performed before 2017, Bill Gates and the Vaccine Alliance GAVI and WHO pushed the vaccines on unsuspecting African babies.
The documentary than focuses from the actual impact of Bill Gates funded vaccines to the actual agenda behind it.
As we understand it, the documentary is part of the Plandemic Series and longer version of the same exist which is being suppressed by mainstream media.
And there you have it, folks.
Bill Gates-Population Control
Apr 9, 2020
This is the famous clip of Bill Gates describing how we can lower the population through Vaccines, Healthcare and Birth Control. It’s in the context of a TED Talk about Global Warming and how to lower C02. I hear him very clearly saying these three things can lower the population, but the first 2 would certainly increase population and the 3rd would likely stabilize or slow the rate of increase. What do you hear him say?
Such astounding evil.
Horrific that the people think it’s a good thing.

I just sighted these 9 lights due west of me out over the Pacific. They were only visible for a few minutes and I don’t know how long they were there before I saw them. Note when you zoom in, they are circles with black centers. You’ll see in the 3rd photo how they began tapping out one by one. And the strangest part for me as a sailor, is that their light did not reflect on the ocean. Also please note, during my time here living on the beach in Mexico (4 years) this is not my first sighting of unusual objects in space. And each time, it’s a different show. Wow! What do you think they are…? “Hey Earthlings, we come in peace!” Let’s hope so! haha

This is interesting.
Especially considering where this is.
Kind of ominous, too, eh.
Considering the area was just hit pretty hard seismically.
Seems legit, as well, but idk for certain.
It was during my third deployment to Iraq; the platoon had taken up residence in two houses in a village several miles south of Haditha. One day I heard our translator having a heated discussion with two local men. I grabbed my gear and my rifle and walked out to the road to investigate. I ask the translator what was going on. He tells me that these two men are crazy and assures me that they are not dangerous. I ask what they want, and he mumbles about them being superstitious, or something along those lines. He assures me that everything is ok, and my attention is not needed. It took a bit of prying, but the translator finally says that they are having a wolfman problem, but they are afraid that if they shoot at it, the local troops will be alarmed and attack their house. They tell us that this wolfman has been coming around late at night and has already killed a few sheep. And they are worried that it’s going to start attacking their family.
So, I assume somewhere in translation the word ‘dog’ has turned into ‘wolf’ and is somehow being conveyed to me by the translator as ‘wolfman’. So, I try to clarify “do they mean a dog?” The translator is a bit hesitant, almost like he’s embarrassed that his countrymen are wasting everyone’s time by believing in such nonsense. But they are adamant that their house is being besieged by a wolfman. Again, I ask if it’s just a big dog, and no, it’s a wolfman. So, I ask if there are wolves in Iraq and they are all in agreeance that yes, there are wolves in Iraq. But there are no wolves in this part of the country and it’s not a wolf or a large dog that has been killing their sheep; it’s a wolfman.
The translator is trying to usher them away but at this point I am very intrigued, and still a bit confused over the whole “dog-wolf-wolfman” thing. So, I ask them to describe what they are seeing. They tell me that every few nights it comes around, they first see it on four legs, as it skulks around their small compound. But then it stands up like a man, walking on two legs. It growls and it has lunged at the men, but as they retreat, it turns its attention to the sheep. Their own dogs refusing to help protect human or sheep. They tell me the creature has killed a few of their sheep and that they have even found one of the bodies, ripped apart with portions of it eaten away. They have been hesitant to shoot for fear of troop involvement.
The translator says that he has heard of such a creature, and even though this type of story has been spread through the area by various people, it is no more than superstitions and delusions. He assures me that there is no such thing as a wolfman.
I tell the two men that they should feel free to protect themselves and their livestock. And with my interest piqued, I get the men to agree to allowing us to stop by from time to time and set up an observation post while we are out on patrol. A couple nights later I join a night patrol and we head towards the house. We are greeted by one of the men and he gives us entry to the compound. We go up to the roof and set out sentries to overlook a nearby bridge.
About an hour later the homeowner comes up with a panicked look on his face. He’s talking really fast; excitement and concern in his voice and body language. He’s wanting me to come with him. I tell two others to come with me and we all follow the man. He leads us to the other side of the house, and we exit onto an enclosed courtyard where the sheep are being kept. The sheep are making plenty of noise and the man is pointing to a dark corner of the yard. I strain my eyes to see what he’s pointing at. Finally, I see it, a large wolf/dog, just standing in the corner. I ask the other two guys with me if they see it too, and they both agree that it’s a wolf or a dog. It moved behind a small sections on of wall and I could hear popping & cracking noises; like joints or knuckles being cracked. When it stepped out from behind the wall, it was upright on two legs. It swiftly and effortlessly jumped the perimeter wall and we could here it running away on two feet.
I conveyed to the man as best I could, if that thing ever showed up again, feel free to shoot it if he could; and if he did, to please let me know.
I have always found this an interesting case, especially if it was true.
And by chance I now stumble across this fab report!

“The Man from Taured”—Solved
“He’s a real nowhere man, sitting in his nowhere land…”
In 1954, a well-dressed Caucasian man arrives at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Everything seems to be going normally until the man gives customs officials his passport.
The passport shows him coming from a country called Taured, you see. And Taured doesn’t exist.
Officials take the man aside and start interrogating him. Someone brings out a map, and the man identifies Taured as a location between France and Spain—where the real-world microstate of Andorra is.
An interrogator asks him if he means Andorra. No, he’s never heard of it. He’s from Taured.
He has money from several different (real) European countries. His passport has multiple stamps, including Japanese ones, and appears real. He claims he has a business meeting in Tokyo. He can speak Japanese and says his native language is French.
Officials take him to a nearby hotel room, on the top floor, and put him under guard. Then they do some checking.
The company for which he claims to work has never heard of him.
The hotel at which he claims to have booked a reservation never received one from him.
Officials go back to the room—and the man has vanished. The guards swear he never came out the door, and the only way out is through the window—which is not only on the hotel’s top floor but also locked.
He’s never seen again.
As you’ve probably guessed, this fun Twilight Zone-esque story is almost definitely bogus. No one has ever been able to find any Haneda Airport documentation or contemporary newspaper articles about it—or any evidence whatsoever. It’s now more or less a copypasta, with little variation between retellings.
But how did it start?
This tale was posted here in 2014, and u/Meginsanity found what I think is the earliest-known reference to the story, in Colin Wilson and John Grant’s The Directory of Possibilities (1981). In the book, Wilson and Grant have one sentence on our Tauredian traveler:
And in 1954 a passport check in Japan is alleged to have produced a man with papers issued by the nation of Taured.
I haven’t been able to find a single earlier reference. So what about the rest of the story?
Well, I think the entire second half can be jettisoned. Even accepting that a man can disappear/transport back to his alternate universe from a locked and watched hotel room (paging the ghost of John Dickson Carr), why would customs officials have brought him to a random hotel in the first place? That section of the story reads like a later addition to make the reader think the guy really did come from an alternate universe.
Did the first half happen, though? If so, the solution may be nothing more than the French-Japanese language barrier. Note that the French word for Andorra, l’Andorre, has some of the same vowel sounds as the made-up Taured. (We don’t know for certain, after all, that the man actually spoke Japanese.) And remember that the Wilson/Grant book says nothing more than that the man produced “papers issued by the nation of Taured.”
That said, I do know one of the book’s authors, Colin Wilson—an interesting, intelligent, and insightful writer who nevertheless “believed almost everything he read about the paranormal, no matter how outrageous,” as skeptic Martin Gardner wrote. Knowing what I do of Wilson, I don’t think he would have made up a reference, but he might have repeated one uncritically. Where he got it, though, I have no idea.
That was originally where I stopped my post, more or less.
But then I found two Reddit posts that—I can say with some certainty—cracked the entire case.
Last year, u/NatanaelAntonioli posted to r/japan about the story. He/she linked to an Aug. 15, 1960, clipping from Vancouver’s The Province, which told the story of conman John Allen Kuchar Zegrus (emboldenings mine):
Mr. Zegrus wanted to travel the world. To impress officials, he invented a nation, a capital, a people and a language. All these he recorded on a passport which he made himself. […]
John claimed to be a “naturalized Ethiopian and an intelligent agent for Colonel Nasser.” The passport was stamped as issued at Tamanrasset, the capital of Tuared “south of the Sahara.” Any places so romantically named ought to exist, but they don’t. John Allen Kuchar Zegrus invented them. […]
[Zegrus’s] gallant gesture for the individualist, unfortunately, ended with the Japanese in Tokyo. They began looking up maps.
This rather tears it, I think. Other than the country’s placement “south of the Sahara” rather than between France and Spain, this basically is the Taured story. And the spelling is close that I can’t believe it’s a coincidence.
Antonioli also linked to a 1960 speech by British M.P. Robert Mathew, published in Hansard. According to Mathew (emboldenings again mine):
My hon. Friend may know the case of John Alan Zegrus, who is at present being prosecuted in Tokio. […] This man, according to the evidence, has travelled all over the world with a very impressive looking passport indeed. […]
The passport is stated to have been issued in Tamanrosset the capital of the independent sovereign state of Tuarid. […] When the accused was cross-examined he said that it was a State of 2 million population somewhere south of the Sahara. This man has been round the world on this passport without hindrance, a Passport which as far as we know is written in the invented language of an invented country.
And then in Nov. 2020, u/taraiochi figured out the last piece of the puzzle. He/she linked to a 1960 Japanese newspaper article that is clearly about Zegrus. As translated by u/johnmasterof, it reads:
A mysterious foreigner of unknown nationality and background, accused of illegal entry and fraud, tried to commit suicide in front of the judge who handed down the verdict, at the Tokyo District Court on April 10. The defendant, John Allen K. Ziegler [sic] (36), was sentenced by Judge Yamagishi to one year of imprisonment…
Zieglass [sic] and his Korean wife entered Haneda Airport with a forged passport from Taipei on October 24 last year, and in December of the same year, he stole about 200,000 yen and $140 in traveler’s checks from the Tokyo branch of the [Chase Manhattan Bank], and another 100,000 yen from the Tokyo branch of the Bank of Korea. The forged passport used to enter the country was handmade and the name of the country, Negusi Habesi Ghouloulouloul Esprit, was completely fictitious, and the characters written on it were also unclear, even after being authenticated by a specialist, as to what language it was written in.
The defendant spoke 14 countries, and in response to the investigation, he stated that he had come to Japan on orders from an Arab-related agency and was working for a U.S. intelligence agency, but there was no such fact, and the district prosecutor, troubled by the fact that the nationality of the defendant was unknown, prosecuted the case. The identity of the riddle was not revealed at the trial, and the English newspaper reported that he was a “mystery man”.
And that’s the solution to the mystery of the Man from Taured. Wow. Full credit to u/NatanaelAntonioli and u/taraiochi for their amazing detective work, and I’m delighted that we’re finally able to put this old chestnut to rest.
EDIT: u/vegetepal and u/tropical_chancer have pointed out that Tamanrasset is a real place in Algeria with a large Tuareg population. It’s probable, therefore, that Zegrus based the name and location of fictional “Tuared” on the Tuareg people and the city of Tamanrasset.

A rather different tale…
Just in at r/cryptids
Posted by u/Personal-Royal
I’m posting this because my curiosity has and probably will always get the better of me. I heard a story a couple years back from my best friends mom that was told by her grandmother. We’re all lovers of cryptids and urban legends so the tales we know are always shared with each other quite regularly. Well, this telling from her grandma was from back around the early 1960s, where they lived in a mobile home in the state of Kentucky. They lived pretty far back into the land where their property was surrounded by woods or corn fields. She said there were normal strange occurrences that happened, but one night she heard what sounded like rustling around outside their home. After a little bit of hearing the noise she said she opened the window to see what it was and she said there was a scarecrow running full speed away from their house and running into/through the cornfield while it screamed at the top of its lungs. I always love hearing this story and I wanted to do some research, but the only thing that comes up is the Bubák which has barely any information on it and is not from the States. I was curious if anyone else has ever heard or had their own experiences with something that resembles a scarecrow??
Well, now, that is one interesting happening!

Back in 1982 these residents from Texas reported something they couldn’t explain. Today, we take a look at what these residents encountered. Before humans became the apex predators of the world, several million years before, there walked monstrous creatures of both terrible size and stature known as dinosaurs. In the modern day, through the efforts made in paleontology and computer sciences, we can now recreate, with nearly photorealistic quality, the probable build and design of such creatures from the distant past.

China’s Tianwen-1 probe beams back 1st PHOTO of Mars during historic mission
5 Feb, 2021 16:32 / Updated 1 day ago
The space race is heating up once again after China’s Tianwen-1 Mars probe beamed back its first image of Mars amid the country’s historic first trip to the Red Planet.
The image arrived some six months after the craft blasted off from China’s southern Hainan island in July 2020.
The black-and-white picture was taken around 2.2 million kilometers (1.4 million miles) from Mars or around 184 million kilometers from Earth some 197 days into its mission, according to the China National Space Administration (CNSA).
The unmanned Tianwen-1 is expected to enter Mars’ orbit later this month and will attempt a landing on the Red Planet’s Utopia Planitia in its northern hemisphere in May, where it will deploy a rover.
This rover is currently pencilled in to conduct a 90-day survey mission in what would be another historic first for the mission and for the world, as it would mark the first time in history a country managed to orbit, land and deploy an exploratory rover in its inaugural mission to the Red Planet.
Interesting times ahead!
What a wonderful experience to have.

nearly two years in the making, Myhrvold has developed what he bills as the “highest resolution snowflake camera in the world.” Recently, he released a series of images taken using his creation, a prototype that captures snowflakes at a microscopic level never seen before.
In simple terms, the system Myhrvold developed is comprised of one part microscope and one part camera, but with a number of parts that work in tandem to complete the arduous task of capturing an image of a snowflake, a subject that’s not only miniscule (most snowflakes measure less than a half-inch in diameter) but also quick to melt. In fact, a snowflake’s tendency to disintegrate was one of the biggest challenges Myhrvold had to overcome with this project. His solution: equipping his 50-pound camera system with a thermoelectric cooling system, a carbon fiber frame and LED lights, which give off less heat than standard lights. Every single part of his Frankenstein-esque device, which stands at about five feet in height off the ground when placed on a table, was built using materials that are less likely to cause melting or sublimation of the subject matter.
“Light could melt the snowflake, so I found a company in Japan that makes LED lights for industrial purposes,” he says. “My camera’s flash is one-millionth of a second and a thousand times faster than that of a typical camera flash.”
How about that?
Archaeologists Discover Bas-Relief of Golden Eagle at Aztec Templo Mayor
January 25, 2021
A team of archaeologists from the Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia (INAH) have announced the discovery of a bas-relief depicting an American golden eagle (aquila chrysaetos canadensis).
For the Mexica, the bird of prey was closely related to war and sacrifice, while being considered a nahual of the sun and, therefore, also of its tutelary god, Huitzilopochtli.
The relief was excavated at the foot of the Templo Mayor (the main temple of the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan in present-day Mexico City), in the central axis that crosses the ‘chapel’ of Huitzilopochtli and the monumental sculpture of the goddess Coyolxauhqui.
I love this… the ancients were just so fabulous. And the Aztec were not6 all that ancient. To my view of ancient, that is. : )

undercover footage from north korea shows a homeless, starving young woman; she was found dead two months after this interview in a corn field, probably trying to find a corn to eat.
North Korea : Starving 23 year-old Homeless Woman (Rimjin-gang/ASIAPRESS)

23 year-old Homeless Woman Found Dead (2011/Feb/05)
ISHIMARU Jiro (Chief Editor)
A 23 year-old woman Rimjin-gang reporter Kim Dong-cheol previously interviewed was recently found dead in a field. Kim was conducting undercover reporting in South Pyongan Province in June 2010 when he met an emaciated, soot-blackened woman in the suburb of the city. With a weak voice, she told Kim she had recently lost her parents, her home, and had since been living in the streets. Kim couldn’t catch her name because of her weak voice.
At the time she was gathering grass to feed rabbits. In that region of the country, many households are obliged to feed rabbits at home and local schools gather them. It is said that these rabbits are used to supply food to the military or fur procurement. She was selling what she gathered in the market to make what little money she could.
This video interview was smuggled out of the country and distributed by ASIAPRESS. It had a large impact on the global community after footage was broadcast on major stations such as ASAHI TV (Japan), KBS TV (South Korea), ARD (Germany) and BBC (UK). In particular, after a feature report on South Korean KBS was aired on October 3, hundreds of comments were posted on the program’s website expressing deep feeling of sympathy for her.
Kim informed us she was found dead around October 20, 2010, only a few months after meeting her:
” Without a home, she had survived by begging in the market and along the road. But one day she was discovered dead in a corn field. It was the corn harvesting season at the time, so she was probably trying to find raw corn to eat. A neighborhood reported that there was a woman’s body lying in the field and rumors spread around the area. It was later confirmed that it was the body of the 23 year-old homeless woman. It seems many days had already lapsed since her death, as the body had begun to decompose. But local police still left it there for a long time.”
Currency reform, the 2009 redenomination of the won, has caused massive economic turmoil in North Korean society, leading to increases in homelessness and starvation in several regions. For families like that of this woman, the policy destroyed their livelihoods. They had no choice but to sell their homes and wander the streets. She is one of the victims of this reckless redenomination policy.

Heartbreaking horror. And though this is ten years old, not a God damn thing has changed over there, with the possible exception of the closing of one (or two?) of the worst camps. 12? 14? God, I forget. And, Godspeed 22!
Don’t worry, though, they’ve still got plenty of camps. Many are mines. Factories, as well, making low-end things destined to be labeled “Made In China” — and sold here.
I was deeply into digging out info on North Korea back when it started it’s media blitz a few years ago. I learned so much and was simultaneousl sickened, incredulous and awestruck. I still follow it — and if you are interested I highly recommend the DailyNK, a news service out of Seoul staffed and run by a good-size cadre of reporters who are all escapees from the North. They have myriad contacts in the North and their site is updated every day. It’s the real NK news, right from the horse’s mouth, not the ridiculous MSM hooey.

Our up close sighting in Big Sur California. 1978
Introduction and warning:I’ve only shared this experience with family and friends. After stumbling across this and a few other Big Foot subs, I’ve decided to share this experience on all of the subs.
This long read needs some introduction in order for the reader to understand the geographical area and circumstances of the sighting. This sighting caused events immediately thereafter which I have also included. If you don’t enjoy reading, bail now.
Big Sur is a mountainous area in south central California situated on the edge of the Los Padres National Forest (which is almost 3000 square miles large) and over looking the Pacific Ocean on the western side.
Three friends and myself (ranging from 16-18) who lived in nearby Salinas, had planned on driving to a secluded spot in Big Sur that we called “Top of the World.” This particular area of big Sur wasn’t frequented by people except for some occasional vehicle traffic from locals or the rare tourist or hiker during the day and was void of Humans at night. At night there was of course critters (bobcat, fox) and even the occasional mountain lion. No people, no cops, perfect location for four party animals.
We drove down the Pacific coast highway and turned off on the Old Coast Road which winds up into the mountains (the Old Coast Road is a hard packed dirt road and former primary route in and out of Big Sur prior to the construction of the Bixby Bridge).
Our spot, “The top of the world,” was right off and above the dirt road with an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. The spot was directly accessible from the old dirt road which had steep cliffs on one side, and the other a very deep ravine with the Bixby creek (or little Sur river, I don’t remember) running through it.
Well, the party never even started because of the event I will now describe. I might add that the events of this night are burned into my memory. It was almost traumatic. With the exception of some (exact) conversation, I remember everything like it was yesterday.
Steve parked his mom’s Chevy Vega at the base of the incline leading to our spot, grabbed some beers out of the hatch back (which we left open) and walked halfway up the very steep incline. The distance between where Steve’s car was parked and the top of the hill was maybe 30 yards
What happened next all took place in a matter of seconds but it seemed like an eternity to me.
We were sitting next to each other in a row facing the Pacific Ocean. Behind us was the crest of the hill about 15 yards up. Beyond that, the dark and foreboding forest. looking out at the Pacific, talking little and just taking in the beautiful view whilst sipping our beers, we got quiet and maybe a bit reflective (I know I did). It was beautiful.
At one point, in the midst of silence, something weird happened (Later, when all this was over, we talked about this strange feeling that none of us had ever experienced).
What happened was this: all of a sudden, we all looked at each other; and without speaking a word, as if every one of us was receiving an unspoken message, or intuitive response to nature or a gut feeling, we simultaneously looked around behind us, at the top of the hill; this is what we saw:
There, at the top, not 15 yards away, was a creature. It was simply standing there, observing (us). I will try my best to describe what I (we) saw despite the fact that it was almost midnight (which added to the creep factor) and our eyes were well acclimated to darkness by then.
This “being” was not human. That I know for sure. It just stood there, completely upright, arms to the side, facing in our direction. Whether or not it was looking at us I couldn’t tell because unfortunately, due to lighting conditions and the angle (I guess), I saw only the outline of a head and body; a very hairy head and body that was dark in colour. No facial features that I can remember. There was very long “hair” (fur?) flowing down from the head but there was an opening where a face must have been. All I saw was darkness between the hair on the head. No eyes or other facial features. The head hair seemed to flow down and mix with the rest of the hairy body. I distinctly remember the arms. They were long but seemed to fit the size of the body. I don’t recall them being overly long like an ape but they also had long flowing hair; as did the torso and legs. It was tall, maybe seven feet but that could have been because we were looking up at it. It was also wide. It gave me the impression of great strength. It made absolutely no sound.
To be fair, I soaked all this information up in probably about one or two seconds. Reason being, an immediate feeling of “fight or flight” kicked in as soon as I (we) turned and saw this creature. Anyone that’s been in combat or other life or death situations knows what I mean with fight or flight. “fight” wasn’t an option (obviously) so we did, once again simultaneously, what most humans would do: GET THE F*** OUT OF DODGE!!
If anyone’s interested in the aftermath, which almost cost all of us our lives, feel free to read on…
We ran. I stumbled and fell because of the steep incline and the guys made it to the car before me. I didn’t even try to get in, rather, I simply jumped into the open hatchback. Steve started the Vega and gunned it. We only got two corners away from Mr. Foot before Steve lost control and we went sliding over the side of a cliff. Thankfully, The first 20 yards of the drop was gradual and was overgrown with thick underbrush that slowed the car to a stop before dropping off the steep cliff and into the creek below. We all climbed out, thanking our luck and climbed back up to the road.
Now we had to make a choice. Walking back in the direction we came would be only three miles or so back to highway 1 (the Pacific coast highway). But that direction would also take us by the last place we saw Mr. Foot. The Unanimous decision was to walk the other direction which was 5x as long to reach the highway. That’s how scared we were.
It took hours but we made it, alive and healthy with a story we could share with friends and family for the rest of our lives.
As Paul Harvey always said:
And now, you know the rest of the story…
A most excellent and well told story.
