of feeling that someone is watching you is what I encountered many years ago
east of Coquille in Oregon. 1970 I was employed by a tree planting contractor to
survey lines in this one area in the coast range. I had been working running a
line when I came upon some unusual tracks that appeared to be human shape but
much much larger than normal.
The tracks were running both ways from east to west
and back again. The depth of the tracks were quite alarming to me because my
tracks barley left a shape on the ground. As the afternoon progressed I got a
feeling someone was watching my movements.
On three occasions I heard what
appeared to be somebody beating wood against wood. It must have been about 4 pm
when this awful scream came blasting out of the timberline next to me. It
absolutely unnerved me. I know all the sounds animals make in the Pacific Northwest and this wasn't any animal I had ever heard before.
I never did see
what made this scream but can say it had to be big. I've thought often about that
day many times in my mind and truly believe I was very near a Sasquatch or a
couple of them. In 1970 I had never even heard of the Bigfoot film nor did I
ever read anything on Bigfoot.
Thank you so much for your comment. ... LNP
