The weather is getting better it seems so yesterday, May 26, my wife and I drove to Sru Lake from Coos Bay. Let me say it's a hard travel to get there. As we left Powers, Oregon we entered the Siskiyou National Forest. What a beautiful place. Huge old growth trees everywhere. The road was not bad except for a couple of slide areas.
After four hours of travel we came to Sru Lake deep in the heart of Eden Valley. The place is nothing short of spooky. No one up there.The campground is only two small camping sites. The lake is fairly small surrounded by dense forest and steep hillsides. We looked for tracks at the entrance but found none. Leaving we took the road to Bald Mountain Lookout. Big giant firs and rhododendrons?(spelling)everywhere.
In several place we stopped to look for tracks along the turnouts without any success. The roads up in that area are in bad shape. Lots of slides rocks and trees down from the winter. This is truly a good place for bigfoot to live in peace. Our trip cost $60 dollars in fuel and took 12 hrs to make from the bay, approx 240 miles round trip. It was worth it as we seen the wonderful mountains of bigfoot.
Thank you for sharing your experience. Did you happen to see any signs about an animal attack?...Linda Newton-Perry

Yes, I don't mind 'talking' about it now. In 1975, month and date not remembered, "person or persons unknown" reached in the clerestory window on one of our bedrooms, grabbed our 15 year old daughter by the ankle and dragged her to the end of the top bunk. She screamed, and my husband ran in there. This happened in the awful hours of the night. I had already been up with the two toddlers several times and was exhausted. So I lay in bed and heard some remarkably heavy, ground shaking footsteps run past our house. In approximately 4 seconds, seven heavy steps carried something all the way across our lot, then across 3 others, and into the Indian River. Later we found the window screen, bent beyond salvage, nowhere near the house.
This happened in Brevard County, Florida. We lived in an unincorporated area south of Cocoa. Our little neighborhood was sandwiched between the Indian River and U.S. 1. Neither of us knew anything about this creature. There was a continuing 'flap' of sightings and incidents in Central Florida that year, but at the time we didn't make the connection.
In the late 90s or early 2000's, I stumbled across an old Native American story about the hairy giants that stole young women from their homes. I've read everything I could find since then. I'm convinced that this was a Skunk Ape (Floridian name); and that if the 3-year old had been on that top bunk, we would have had an unspeakable tragedy. Clerestory windows are placed right under the ceiling, about 7 feet off the floor; and they're usually narrow: the teenager could never have been dragged through that window. Not the case with toddlers.
Neither of us smelled or saw anything. We didn't know anything about these creatures then, and didn't look for footprints. My daughter and my husband went into denial about the incident almost immediately; but it baffled me, and I could not forget it. My researches have convinced me that nothing but a Bigfoot could have dragged my 115-pound sleeping teenager down that bed. I have no desire to have another encounter with one of these creatures.
Thank you Marcy. What an experience!...Linda Newton-Perry

Its been my experience that Sas will more likely see you first, and you will feel an odd, perhaps uncomfortable feeling that you're being watched, and you'll also likely hear things nearby, in the darker areas under trees, perhaps. If you are hiking, you will possibly feel followed. I suggest keeping your thoughts and vibration (we are all energy, after all,) positive, and unafraid, and do not encourage a close encounter, especially if you are alone.
Animals can sense, or feel if we are afraid or aggressive. If you are uncomfortable with being watched or followed, move toward an open or public location, at a normal pace, trying to think positive calm thoughts- such as "goodbye, friend." You will not be able to outrun one, so don't try.
My father saw one while hunting many years ago, and it was running fast, uphill, through an eight-foot high, very dense, blackberry thicket. The creature wasn't even slowed down! It, apparently, didn't want to confront Daddy any more than Daddy wanted to confront it. Resist the urge to panic, as you are likely not in danger if you are being followed or watched and Sas does not outright confront you.
