Cowlitz County, Washington
As far as my sighting goes, I was heading home with my roommate from the
movies. This was in either June or July of 1984, but I believe it was July
as it was quite warm.
We were driving west along the Columbia River on State Route 4 about 7 miles
west of Longview when I saw what I thought might be a bear on the river
side (south) of the guardrail, just above the river. I slowed my truck to
a crawl to get a better view as we neared it.
All of a sudden this
"bear" stood up to a height of about 9 feet and stepped over
the guardrail on two legs. I stopped the truck and hit the highbeams and
knew right away what I was seeing was a Bigfoot. I could actually see
what appeared to be very small genitalia!
Up until that very
moment I had never believed in the Sasquatch as I so avidly hunted and
fished the mountains of Washington and had never before seen one nor had
I noticed any sign. Of course, I hadn't been looking for any. Well, there
it was right in front of me. It was the male version of Patty only larger
and more muscled. It was not a shaggy haired animal, but quite the opposite.
It was covered in a sleek black hair/fur maybe two to three inches long.
In fact, it looked a great deal like black bear fur, except that the hair
was a bit longer on its shoulders and upper back.
As it stepped over that guardrail, my mind went into "NEVER FORGET
WHAT YOUR SEEING MODE" and I can play it repeatedly in my head. This
thing was giant in stature, yet walked with very fluid movement. It was
amazingly graceful. Its head was slightly pointed and its jaw was massive.
Two steps or so onto the road and it turned and looked right at the truck.
Doing so caused its body to turn with the head after a slight turn of
the neck. At this point it furrowed its brow in, what I took to be, a
look of anger and disgust. It really looked angry!!! It continued across
the road where there was an incline of approximately 60 degrees. It proceeded
to walk up this incline on two legs. I even pointed the truck in that
direction to see it walk up that incline and observe its musculature.
I was very into bodybuilding at that point in life and its musculature
was totally incredible. You could see the muscles rippling and bulging
under the hair. One thing I noticed was that every time it put its weight
on one leg, a VERY large muscle bulged from just above the knee and traveled
all the way up the leg to the side of its gluts. It also walked with its
knees slightly bent and a strangely exaggerated arm swing.
I was in awe, while my friend was so damned scared he refused to watch.
He kept yelling WHAT IS IT? WHAT IS IT? I turned and looked at him and
said, "THAT was a bigfoot!" I told my family and even THEY said
I was nuts...As for my friend, it took me until three years ago to get
him to admit that he actually saw it. As far as everyone else is concerned,
I do not give a damn what they think. I KNOW what I saw, and I KNOW it
could NEVER have been hoaxed.
I saw, on that night, a large male Bigfoot. I would take a lie detector
test; go under hypnosis, or anything else to prove I am telling the Gods
truth. So anyone that wants pay for either of those, feel free to ask
me, and I will agree. No problem.
