It was cold and raining last weekend in the hills of Pennsylvania, but despite the weather, the Bigfoot Camping Adventure rolled on.
This was the event's second year and enthusiasts from around the country proved that not even mother nature would prevent them from turning out to gather and discuss the hairy creature known as Sasquatch.
Organized and hosted by Eric Altman, the event was held at the Brenner's Meadow Run Campground in Farmington, PA. Surrounded by prime Sasquatch country, a lot of attendees braved the elements and took part in night hikes through the trails around the campground, searching for signs of the elusive beast.
During the day on Saturday and Sunday, there were numerous talks given by notables in the field including Rosemary Ellen Guiley, Steve Kulls, Stan Gordon and many more.
There was even a showing of The Legend of Boggy Creek, a film that inspired many modern cryptozoologists. There was plenty of food on hand, a charity auction featuring some amazing Bigfoot related items, music, and lots of sharing of accounts of Sasquatch encounters.
The best part was, the whole event was put together to support some local charities!
It was great to hang out with Eric, Lon Strickler, Jay Bachochin and of course, good friend, Rosemary Ellen Guiley.
Eric Altman deserves a ton of credit for pulling this off despite the weather, the stress of organizing such an event, and the other various challenges that arose.
It's a real sign of both dedication, and how much people were enjoying themselves, that many braved the cold and rain to participate in the weekend's events.
Eric says he's taking a break and won't produce an event next year. Time will tell, but I suspect there'll be a lot of people calling for a return of the Bigfoot Camping Adventure!
