Research continuing….

Hi gang just a quick update on some of the Field Team’s forays. Much to the pushing of Assistant Director Bruce Barraclough, we have expanded to doing multi-area expeditions. Not only have the concurrent expeditions been conducted at different sites but in different states as well.

They have been yielding some interesting results and in December we should have a full recap of all our investigations and expeditions.

We can say that Bruce on his last night out in Area 1 had a track find, which we are still evaluating at this writing. Area 2 on it’s second trip out had some anomalies which we are still discussing as a group. Our next outing we are planning on exploring the other, equally as active other side of Area 2.

Our November mission will focus on yet a new area to us, Area 3. Over the winter months we will be investigating sighting reports and perhaps opening yet more research areas particularly privately owned sites.

Again I couldn’t do what I do without my awesome team. Thank you to those great people.

Over the last month I have been exploring new research areas for my team since it would seem what I have labeled as “Research Area #1” seems a bit played out, as activity seems to be dwindling off and not what it was.

One interesting note on #1 is that on September 11th, while the meat of the field team, led by Assistant Director, Bruce Barraclough,  went to investigate lower areas, back at the base camp, Case Manager Stacey Horton and myself, had a rather large rock come crashing through the trees and land about 25 feet in front of us. (Mind you whatever had thrown it was throwing it uphill).

Rock thrown at me and Stacey Horton, 22:40 hours, 11- September – 2013.

 

I recovered the baseball sized rock. The interesting thing is that this type of stone is actually found some distance away. (1/2 mile) but is not indigenous to that particular area.

On September 25th, 2013 the team, explored a new area, well scouted by myself over the years. The area has a history of Sasquatch encounters going back to the late fifties.

As we entered the area, we discovered a sheep herd at some distance and it is quite an impressive sight to see hundreds of glowing eyes looking at you in the dark, albeit a bit unnerving at first.

We continued on to the lookout point which I had set as my “high water mark,” and began to scan the opposite shore across the river which was before us, with the thermal imager.

The opposite shore was barren of life it appeared, when suddenly a large splash, as if something rather large had been thrown into the water to my eight o’clock, which was on the same side of the river as the team.

I began to scan the side of the shore we were on, with the thermal imager and low and behold a solitary biped standing on the shoreline. It began to move towards us and then into the wood line disappearing.

I also scanned with the naked eye as well, to insure we weren’t looking at a late night fisherman, (despite the ruggedness to travel down to that area) and there was nothing but darkness, ( an IR scan also showed no IR lights, aka night vision was being used as well) so if it was a human they were using a naked eye to navigate the darkness.

Team member Ted Varamogianis and I bolted from our lookout and staked out the road we had just traveled up in hopes we might catch it crossing over to the more desolate and evergreen side of the road, but with no luck.

Road Ted and I dashed down to hopefully spy another glimpse.

It had either crossed over before we had gotten their, perhaps at another point, or could have hidden in the area some forty feet below us.

The next day, I traveled back to the location and took some comparison photos and look for signs of any trace evidence.

First was to pinpoint the location.

Unfortunately the terrain was not conducive to leaving track finds and the shore line was constantly under assault from boat wakes that cause water in some places to travel up to 3 feet over the shoreline.

One positive note, there was no sign what so ever of any human contamination. Leading me to suspect we had a successful mission.

Our team for 9/25/13 – Deneen, Steve, Stacey, Squatch-D, Ted, and Jim.

I’d like to thank all of our team whom made it to the last two expeditions and outings, and a big thanks to Bruce Barraclough for his hard work.

Well gang updates and more investigations yet to come.

“Keep on Squatchin’”

Update: 7/28/2013

Well it’s been a couple of weeks since last posting. I decided a little me time was necessary and time to “right the ship” so to speak.

Squatchdetective Radio, will return shortly, as I have been working on a new center, and will be complete by October. Currently working on arrangements to continue the show with our great friends over at CyberstationUSA.com .

The Squatchdetective.com Field Team has been completely revamped. We have parted company with Tri-City NY Paranormal Society and the New York Bigfoot Society. The latter was going in a direction in which was very different to ours and thought it was best to part ways.

Of course I am still proud to be associated with NESRA and the ABS.

That being said, this concept was slowly in progress prior to our association with Tri-City, and now is the time to roll such out.

A new team within the last couple of days has been formed, and it is a much larger, more diverse contingent than we’ve had previously.

We have an advisory panel of seven great folks that will lend their eyes, ears and analysis of our evidence prior to release. Team members and advisors will be announced on a new team page we will be adding to Squatchdetective.com.

We also have two team members which will serve as our Wildlife Biology consultants.

Part of the new team in June 2013 on a scout mission.

 

That being said, we will announce today two positions that have been long overdue.

First is Gary Laviolette who has been acting as an ad-hoc Assistant Director since 2006 and now assumes the title.

Stacey Horton, who was previously with the original field team, now takes the roll of Squatchdetective.com’s Case Manager as well as taking an active field roll. 

In the upcoming months we have numerous plans in motion, so it should be an exciting season.

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D
