WHITEHALL, N.Y. The 60-odd people who convened in a northern New York R-V park yesterday afternoon weren’t interested in finding a yeti, or the Loch Ness monster even. They were looking strictly for Bigfoot.
Members of the national Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization met in Whitehall yesterday to discuss encounters and tales of the mythical beast.
The group’s founder Matt Moneymaker spoke of a couple in a secret Appalachian location who had supposedly experienced recent repeat encounters with the creature.
The organization met in Whitehall for a second year because it believes the town is one of the hottest spots in the country when it comes to finding Bigfoot. Members say alleged sightings in the area have been multiplying and have been constant for more than 30 years.
The group is currently setting up thousands of dollars worth of special equipment with which they hope to spot evidence of the beast in the area. Since Thursday, members have spend eight hours a day at the local bigfoot hot-spots they’d identified.
You would think that with 60-odd people, they would spend more than eight hours a day at the local Bigfoot hot-spots. You could have 3 eight hour shifts a day.
