A rare mid-week, fall post.  Too many things happening and a breaking development that needs mentioning.  For those wondering, we have not been intimidated into giving up our rights to speech, opinions  and editorial commentary.

A Battle of Wits or Nit Wits?

The battle between Dyer and Kulls continued over the last few months.  Dyer claimed he possessed a baby bigfoot, that liked Mc’Ds and had some odd anatomy .  Kulls cries hoax, Dyer challenges him to come see it out on the west coast.  Kulls falls for the first part of the trick and leaches some frequent flyer miles and travels to LA, but then has a back up plan when Dyer attempts to get him to travel to the HOLLYWOOD sign where he would be transported to the secret location and does not fall for the rest of the gag.  Both claim victory, Kulls crows of busting a hoax.  We don’t think a few days of time and burning some jet fuel was necessary to figure out it was a hoax, Dyer was clearly going over the top in his claims, but if it helps keep Kulls thinking he is the detective man then all is well.

Take aways from this story:

– Bigfootery can create strange bedfellows, a few months earlier Kulls was exposing and calling out the same guys that were the charity source of the flyer miles to get him out west.

– Dyer is incorrigible and can work angles better than Minnesota Fats, he is sticking to the shooting story and selling a $100 dvd that gets your rights to see the body once it goes on display.

Cyber Offensive Launched Against Some Bigfooters

It would seem that someone(s) are being nefarious and hacking websites and email accounts.  Those that have been victims are revealing, if someone wants to place themselves at the various levels of bigfootery fame, the fact that you have been a target of this effort is enlightening.  Who, where, why, enquiring minds would like to know.

Take aways from this story:

– Use a good password, or at least a robust piece of software.  Change the password often and have a back up.

Melba and Crew Hold a Press Conference

We are still trying to figure out the why on this one, was just too busy to either watch the tape or read the reactions.   A few leading theories are they wanted to recapture some momentum prior to releasing a film or marketing the product as a TV special similar to the mermaid deal History aired (Yo Adrian and other investors would certainly like to see some return), they are trying to get in front of the other study as it nears release, or like many of the fourth and fifth level bigfooters they just want some media exposure.  The whole thing was met with some coverage, many snickers at the local news level and generally a “ho-hum”.

Take aways from this story:

– What little we watched showed some very awkward people and some telling body language.

– Where was Super Dave, the mastermind of the Ketchum study?  Distancing oneself Dave?  Not wanting to show up at a publicized event where service might happen?  Just too busy with the UFO people now?  Nobody willing to spring for the airfare?  Consult Kulls, he is good at soliciting charity.

Broken Neck Mountain

We can only imagine the glee when that crew coined that phrase.  Such a tricky twist to a famous phrase, they probably imagined it would join bigfootery place names like Ape Canyon and Bluff Creek.  Oh the back slapping that must have ensued.

We’ve followed it from afar for a year or more.  Owl calls, deer meeting their natural demise, it must be bigfoot.  But it got better when mis-litigation got involved.  The irony of buddying up to the mountain forefathers and those that a member of the bored use to heap abuse upon as the Bigfoot Research Buster was not lost on us.  The fact that an effort to cut out the main person involved in getting on to the property, fights over ownership of “evidence”, booting people from facebook bigfootery groups  were all too familiar when mis-litigation inserts herself in the mix.  But we digress from the point of this particular part of the post.

Last weekend we had the distinct pleasure of captaining some true patriots, and not the right or left wing political hate speech patriots, we are talking true patriots who serve US.  While they were all experienced, this particular river was new to all but one.  I had a full boat of them, my travel and BFE S-6  pard had four.  They were brilliant and interesting people, it was a pleasure to introduce them to the beast of east and it was an excellent trip.  Like magicians, I cannot reveal all the secrets on how captains select customers and each company does it a little different with repeat customer requests being honored first.  But a certain amount of seniority and a keen eye got me these people and it was a really great day on the river.

Each trip ends differently, sometimes you get a heartfelt thanks, sometimes a thanks and a tip and sometimes you get an invite to unwind in the evening.  In this case we got an invite to stop by and have dinner and some beverages, which is usually a good thing well received.  They invited us back to the cabin they had rented, more like a big house with an amazing porch and view to go along with it.  As we shot the breeze into the evening an owl was startled and let us know about it.  One thing led to another, some campfire bigfoot stories were told and we shared with them the broken neck mountain saga.  Here’s where it gets interesting, three of those customers called themselves analysts.  An i-pad was produced as this rustic cabin had wifi and we proceeded to google up broken neck mountain and show them an aerial photo and some facebook posts from the mountain.  One mid twenty something took an email address and said he could probably tell us more once he had access to his home computer, a clearer mind and some time to look into it.

Today an email appeared, here is the gist of it.  The person who had blogged the aerial thought he had scrubbed it by doing a save as picture and then making it a jpg, but the geo data is still embedded in the file once you know how to crack it open and where to look,  some of the pictures were also from camera phones and that data was also there and confirmed against the aerial.  When you put in those longs and lats it matches, the distinctive drive and pond are there.

Take aways from this story:

Fate can twist and karma is not a concept.  Mis-litigation once revealed a location, took great joy in revealing a location actually.  We did not release her address that was listed in the failed lawsuit, but perhaps a tit for a tat is appropriate.  We did not have a dog in that other hunt, it just seemed very shady to do what she did.

It’s amazing the people we get to meet on the second job, imagine usually making a dozen new friends every weekend for two months.

There are patriots and then there are bitter right-wing, and left-wing blowhards, when you spend time with the real deal it makes your disdain for the others that much stronger.

Ditto the strange bedfellows comment previously made.
