    FYI, Arcata is in the deepest coastal heart of the Sasquatch habitat, with a recent report of two creatures wading in a nearby lagoon, and many other sightings all thru the area’s wooded mountains, plus it’s only a couple of hours mountain driving from Willow Creek and you-know-what!

    Here’s a chance to combine a celebratory event with an opportunity to scout around the local wildlands! Altho rural, Arcata and nearby Eureka offer many hospitality facilities, dining spots and beaches to wander to your heart’s content!

    Redding is 4 hours east on Hiway 299, a gorgeous drive.

    I can’t wait, and I hope to meet you there!

  3. Craig Woolheater responds:


    I plan to be there as well. Look forward to meeting you there.

    Check here for 41 Humboldt County Reports, including Arcata/Eureka.

    Hope you are able to give us updates from the symposium. Number of reported sightings and a state by state breakdown. The most valid footprints, handprints and film, DNA if possible.

    What’s the year around climate like in Arcata?

    The potential food supply for a Sasquatch in that region of California? Must be someway to capture one of those BigFellas.

  6. fuzzy responds:

    Bob: Food – usual woodland fare, deer and other small mammals, lots of coastal undergrowth, shellfish from lagoons, fish from rivers etc…

    Weather – heavily influenced by ocean breezes, moderate temp, cool in summer, tolerable in winter, a very pleasant environment.

    Check my Link above for TONS of info.

    This is great. A big pat on the back to Bob and John for leading the way in representing every one interested in this subject in such a dignified way, they are both first class. Larry Battson, Wildlife Educational Services, Inc.
