Featured Friday: Bigfoot on the Brain

The other day a recommendation popped up on my Kindle Fire for a new-to-me Bigfoot book: 100 Bigfoot Nights: A Chilling True Story (Volume 1).

 

This true story sets out to chronicle the terrifying encounters that a residential family has had with the creature known as Bigfoot. Accompanied by video, photographs, and audio evidence, the story is written in Christine’s own words as it unfolds. According to the Bigfoot investigator they contacted, “They aren’t going anywhere.” As the world gets more crowded with us, “They” are left with less and less habitat. They have learned to live in the shadows and pass through the forests by our homes. After reading this book just ask yourself, what would you do if this happened to you?

Caught my eye so after reading the blurb (above), I checked out the reviews. Mostly favorable. Added it to my Wish List.

Ever since our trip to Alaska last summer, I seem to keep seeing stuff for Bigfoot. Like when we were in Ketchikan and I was shopping. I came across a magnet I wasn’t expecting to find in one of the stores.

Of course I bought it and now proudly display it on our refrigerator.

While we were on that Alaskan cruise, I kept scanning the forested shores from our ship’s decks for signs of Bigfoot. It looked like prime Bigfoot habitat to me.

For good reason. I remembered from the History Channel’s “Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide” and the sightings they’d reported that we were sailing smack-dab through Bigfoot country.

Does Bigfoot lurk in there somewhere?

Looks like the kind of rocky beach others have reported witnessing Bigfoot-like creatures walking on, right?

Such dense trees could hide and support a Bigfoot life form, yes?

Then when we went to Puerto Rico for our most recent cruise we had to fly to Fort Lauderdale first. We had loads of time to kill before we caught the leg to San Juan so we went browsing in the airport shops. What do I see? Bam! More Bigfoot merchandise!

Hey, that looks an awful lot like the same design on my Ketchikan Bigfoot magnet…

Oh, and back to that Ketchikan Bigfoot. Back in 2011 there was quite the hubbub about someone supposedly catching it on video…shaky, unclear video of course. This About.com article sums it up best and also shares the vid, which was posted on YouTube and of course went viral.

Then today I typed in “Bigfoot” just for shits and giggles on Amazon. Did you know they have a Bigfoot Action Figure?

But wait, that wasn’t the only gem I found. You can also now scent your environment with a Bigfoot Air Freshener.

It says it “Smells just like a Sasquatch.” From some of the smells people report who have allegedly encountered Bigfoot, I’m not sure what this might smell like. Skunk? Musk? Wet dog?

However, there is also a Bigfoot air freshener on Amazon that specifically indicates it’s Pine Scented. It looks exactly like the other Bigfoot air freshener so I’m not sure if there is a difference. And I’m not sure I want to find out. The pine scent would be okay but I wouldn’t want to take my chances getting anything that smells like a musky, wet dog with a hint of skunk.

So what about you? Have you had any Bigfoot encounters lately?
