That guy was awesome, some of the best stand up ever.

I think it would be a blast to go on a Bigfoot hunt with true believers. You know there's alcohol involved somewhere. Here in Ohio we have The Grass Man that lives less than an hour from me. If it wasn't for Monster Quest, I never would have known that. I will never, ever, ever hike in that part of the state ever again... I don't want some Squatch farting in my camp fire. No way!

I don't think this area is very squatchy...here in Colorado. But I'm certain that the Woodbooger roams them thar hills where I's raised.

Wasnt there a post here a few months ago by someone about Bigfoot in the Tenmile range? It was posted in a thread talking about someone's injury I think but was taken down quickly by the site moderators (?). Code of secrecy? :lol:

In no way do I endorse this (I'm neutral like Switzerland) but I figure the site could use a little levity and political tussling in the time leading up to the election of the next Cthulhu:

Texas has Bigfoot also...........I bet his feet are bigger than the normal Bigfoot.

I'm pretty certain the OP can back me up on this. most of those photos look like mark Schmalz before he starting hiring a personal groomer to shave his back and butt.

I'm only familiar with the "real v. fake" argument. What is "hooey"?
