Men Chase Bigfoot and Return to a Torn Up Camp on a Canoe Trip in VA

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on January 22nd, 2015

This story I heard while on a canoe trip through the George Washington Nation Forest in Va. We had tied off for the second night and set up camp. Just before dusk another canoe with two locals joined us and while talking around the fire I asked the usual question… Have you ever seen a Bigfoot out here? Let’s hear his story.

    great story, i’m sure they saw something… but this story doesn’t convince me it’s real. I need hard evidence and undeniable proof.

  2. Goodfoot responds:

    dconstrukt: You knew there would be no “hard evidence” or “undeniable proof” in this story. If that’s what you need, why did you waste your time with this story? Why are you wasting ours complaining about it? You would have been scared shitless, son.

    Funny thing. A canoe trip down a river in the George Washington National Forest (been in it in many places, many times). Wouldn’t you think someone telling this story of a canoe trip (either the original storytellers or the storytellers in the story-within-a-story) would blurt out the name of the river?

    Isn’t that what people really do? “We were on a canoe trip in the George Washington National Forest, down the… well, the name of the river really don’t matter, do it?”

    Yes. Yes, it does. And now you want to know the name of it, too! WHO WOULDN’T? WHO WOULDN’T MENTION IT, if there was an actual canoe trip?

    @Goodfoot — I can’t speak for dconstrukt, but many people read / watch / listen to stories like this in the simple hope that they will be good stories. Period. Its a quixotic quest, because most of these stories suck eggs, whether they be the more honest reports that could have been anything but probably were nothing at all interesting, or the more elaborate stories in which Bigfoot wearing a sun dress and asking for a mochaccino would not be much of an exaggeration.

    It’s easier to explain the missing river name than to explain missing Bigfoot bones. If I thought I saw a Bigfoot, maybe I’d feel the need to tell about it, but if I didn’t want one of my favorite canoeing site overrun by Bigfoot seekers, I might well withhold the exact location from the public.

    I agree with D. Testimonial evidence isn’t good evidence. People tell stories, people lie. But in the totality of evidence, it’s still interesting and useful at least for patterns of sightings, etc.

    I also agree with Good. Whenever some goes canoeing or kayaking, they ALWAYS tell you the river. It’s like they’re the modern day equivalent of Stanley and Livingston finding the source of the Nile.

  5. dconstrukt responds:

    @ mandors + Fhqwhgads – ya… i LOVE reading these stories… I’m looking for specific details that seem to match between all of them… i’m curious if most are just people imagining things they aren’t sure about or if they’re legit or not.

    but you can’t base your opinion on hearing stories.

    in court, you need evidence.

    when you present anything in business or sales, you need facts and data to support your position… this is no different.

    I’d say this would require more… simply because someone is saying there is a bigfoot, an animal that shouldn’t even exist… and hasn’t been proven to…

    you need a MASSIVE amount of evidence to support such an outlandish claim.

    the burden of proof is on them to prove what they’re claiming, not anyone else.

    goodfoot… i’m so sorry you were caused SUCH emotional distress for the 23 seconds it took you to read my 21 word comment.

    you’re complaining about reading 21 words and THAT is “wasting your time”?

    lol… comical.

    Newsflash: THAT is precisely the type of comment a jabronie would make.

    just sayin’

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
