That is because Bigfoot is the champion at social distancingI moved to Washington State in 1989. One of the first things my stepdad introduced me to was the Bigfoot legend. We would drive the logging roads and he would tell stores about Bigfoot and Big Mama. See Big Mama was Bigfoots old lady, and she liked to lay road apples, anytime we would see scat or horse dung in the road he would say “Big Mama is close there’s some road apples”. Of course as an 11 year old kid I believed him and would be on the lookout hoping to catch a glimpse, but I never seen any Bigfoot or Big Mama.
In fact over the past 30 years I’ve been pretty deep into the backwoods, a lot deeper than dude in the vid with his tennis shoes, there’s no old logging roads or slash piles deep in the wilderness, hell there’s places in this state humans have probably never stepped foot in.
In all that time I haven’t seen hide or hair of Bigfoot, that’s not to say I haven’t seen or heard things that were difficult to explain like stands of saplings snapped off at head height and the branches picked clean, or the sound of rocks thrown in the water in the middle of the night near camp. And I’m not the only one who’s experienced this, close friend of mine is Yakama Native and has spent his entire life backpacking and horseback riding deep on the reservation near Mt Adams and he swears up and down that something is out there, that there’s still Stick Indians haunting the Rez. In fact if you internet search Stick Indian there’s a ton of Native lore about them that actually forms the basis of the Bigfoot legend here in the Pacific Northwest.
While I don’t believe in the Bigfoot as described in pop culture, I do believe there’s a good chance an animal is out there we haven’t discovered yet, like I said there’s places humans have probably never stepped foot in.
