If you live your life only casually reading about Bigfoot, you may be unaware of the massive fireworks happening among West Coast Bigfooters, just out of the camera range of the popular televised reality programs searching for Sasquatch.
Now, over at Steven Streufert’s BIGFOOT’S bLOG, today, July 4th, the latest chapter is documented, in minute detail, in “The B.S. Of Bigfoot Encounters.”
Steven Streufert writes: “EVIDENCE EXHIBIT ONE: The Original Article on Larry Lund, from THE COLUMBIAN, October 26, 2005.”
Enuf said. Read the details yourself over there; you won’t see ’em here.
One intriguing personality mystery revealed in passing in Streufert’s piece: What does this Bigfoot Encounters archivist look like these days?
Streufert runs the above photograph noting, “B.S., in the one common photo of her available, as no one seems to have saved the beach bunny one she used to use on the old IVBC.”
Strangely, yesterday, by coincidence, Fortean writer Robert Schneck wrote that he “reached into [his] pocket to pay for a soda and found this” photograph (shown above by Robert). He doesn’t know who it is, or how it came to be in his pocket. The only explanation he could “think of is that the photograph was once glued to something and got stuck to a bill that” Schneck was given as change.
I don’t know what B.S. looks like these days, and it really doesn’t matter, I suppose. What struck me is how the one photo of B.S. that remains around for people to talk about has a pattern on her dress that reminded me of the mystery discovery of Schneck’s, detailed yesterday.
Maybe other photos of B.S. exist out there, in someone’s pocket (or files)? What she looks like today has become as mysterious as, say, what is really shown in that Thunderbird image. If you care about that sort of stuff….
The anomalistic archivist is stirring up a hornet’s nest, that’s for sure.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
