Spring Skiing for Bigfoot in Maine: Cryptozoo News Updates

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 5th, 2007

Today is April 5th. It seems like it should be spring outside, right? Believe it or not, some people think that because I live in Maine, I’m a resident of Canada. I get strange emails.

Truth is, on this Thursday I feel like I’m in the Himalayas. This morning there is about a foot of snow that fell overnight in Portland, Maine. Today is the opening day for the cryptid-named Portland Sea Dogs baseball team, but, of course, that event has to be postponed. So, back to thoughts of cryptozoology….

Humans may be dealing with incredibly unbelievable Easter/Passover skiing in the next few days in the state, but what will the Windigo, our local Bigfoot of Maine, be doing in the over two feet of snow in the mountains after such a bizarre winter? The dog running through my frontyard had trouble. How do Bigfoot move around after a surprise snowstorm? Very carefully, obviously.

Meanwhile, flash images of lake monsters are on my mind too. I will be off to Lake Champlain very soon on a mini-expedition in pursuit of Champ. More on that here on this blog soon.

And April 24th is rapidly approaching, the launch date for Mysterious America: The Ultimate Guide to the Nation’s Weirdest Wonders, Strangest Spots, and Creepiest Creatures. That means more radio shows and book signings.

Speaking of books, it has been a busy month of filling a flurry of orders in March. Sorry for any delays due to my distractions from the History Channel shoot and mini-trips I’ve enjoyed making in the last four weeks. (I really need a volunteer to help me.)

If you wish to double-check on your order, please write me directly at lcoleman{@}maine.rr.com (as opposed to leaving a comment below, which will be deleted). I’m sure your autographed book will arrive in the next week or so. If you want to order another or new book, you can also write me there too, to see if I have one available.

Dover Demon

For those folks asking me if I will be speaking “nearby” in 2007, well, yes, maybe. I know I’ll be giving presentations, for example, on the “Dover Demon” at the “Mass Monster Mash” in Massachusetts in October, on a surprise subject at Craig’s Texas conference later in the fall, and on cryptozoology in general during a lecture in New York City in December. I’ll share the details here as the dates approach.

Tree branches are dropping like flies and power outrages are spreading in Maine. Looks like I should just get out my Accoutrements Bigfoot action figure and make tiny little footprints in the snow. Then watch them melt into giant tracks if the sun ever comes out. Sort of like Sir Edmund Hillary did in the Himalayas, without any consideration that the tracks would merge into each other and no one in their right mind would think that were from a Yeti.

Accoutrements Bigfoot

This popular Bigfoot is available through their retail outlet, Archie McPhee.

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.

  1. Maine Crypto responds:

    Wow didn’t we get a lot of snow! Glad you were in Maine for it Loren. I bet all the animals including cryptids are having a hard time moving around, my dogs sure did! Keep up the good work.

  2. MattBille responds:

    Hang on, it melts even in Maine.
    BTW, in case this one escaped your notice, someone wrote a novel, The Mountain King, about bigfoot-type primates hiding in New Hampshire’s mountains. I have a copy around here somewhere. Not bad, although the path that might have led to the creatures’ presence is discussed only briefly, and it’s heavy on violence.

  3. mystery_man responds:

    The weather has been strange everywhere. In Japan, we have the cherry blossoms in full bloom (which takes warmer weather), and then yesterday, we get snow in Tokyo in April for the first time in 19 years. Wierd.

  4. Bob Michaels responds:

    Coast to Coast, George Noory had a British cryptozoologist on his show last night. i caught the last hour He believed that the Loch harbored a giant eel as the answer to Nessie.

  5. Bob Michaels responds:

    BTW his name is Jonathan Downes, he felt that Big Foot would finally be located in Texas, perhaps by road kill.

  6. fuzzy responds:

    If there’s anything to this Bigfoot migration thing, they might have already gotten back into some of their Spring habitats, so NOW would be a good time for East Coast Bigfooters to grab their cameras and head out into this late snow lookin’ for footprints.

    C’mon, Maine Cryptos, get out there!

  7. ladd responds:

    It definitely was a bizarre Winter! Maybe a prelude for stranger things to come. Anyway Loren, good luck on your mini-expedition to Lake Champlain. Hope “Champ” shows up for you.

  8. Loren Coleman responds:

    I’m back.

    Power outages got me, afterall. I was without power (heat, internet, digital phone, etc.) for about 27 hours, and that was one very cold night to get through.

    Just getting online again.

    A cup of hot tea and I’m feeling civilized again, however.

    Yep, I started predicting about 35 years or longer ago (to media inquiries) that I thought Sasquatch would be discovered when a lumbertruck hits one.
