We never got YOUR version of the blade of grass question.
Of course I think either one of my answers will be deemed correct! lol
Quote : What makes a simple blade of grass grow.
So........ check the answers given and elaborate!
Quite simple.......human poop.
The scientific answer: Photosynthesis.
The Spiritual answer is God. Nothing happens without God.
Now tell me Jim, what is my prize? lol
.it is feces that allows a blade of grass to grow....without it...the world would die.
Everything is returned to Earth. With the exception of water being disposed of in space,(NASA) every drop that exisited 50 million years ago is still here today.
We live in a closet.....think about it.

So sad... Please put this on your status if you know or are related to someone who suffers from stupidity. People need to understand that stupidity is real and should be taken seriously. You could be sitting next to a stupid person right now. In fact, you probably are. There is still no known cure for stupidity and sympathy does not help. But we can raise awareness! 53% won't re-post this because they don't know how to copy/paste
When you are in a fox hole and the crap is coimin in and you realize the guy that's gonna save your life is an idiot.

Hope you are alive.

Now that you brought up the subject...
Yes it is Nellie...by Monster Hunter
and it's genetic...LOL
BTW...about the anomalies in video...by Monster Hunter
One of my contacts will tell you for fact there are multiple entities around their homes...she has a photo of a huge grey misty substance floating in her home...she has seen several types of entities in her home and two Monsters on the pond dam not including glimpses of large four wheeling critters she sees on her outside video camera...as a matter of fact this lady was my first contact concerning tracks she found in her drive casting one of them...She and her husband have smelled bacon cooking early AM when no one was up...back doors banging, screams and howls at night, I think could be Monsters,...her husband has gotten out of bed after hearing these noises going outside to look for the source...her back screen door was pulled apart in some areas...and last but not least she and one of her friends saw several apparitions, outside video camera, walk up to her home after her back yard distorted...from a grassy back yard to pine trees with a couple of dirt lanes...this lady has a witness that saw this as well...
The other lady has been hearing knocking sounds both day and night...by my video I can't or haven't seen anything that can knock...I speculate it could be a dog next to the door scratching itself...but this lady saw a large white looking substance one afternoon as she parked her car at the back of her home...something similar to what I saw on video...
Both of these ladies are credible...with one lady walking outside amongst the Monsters and taking pictures...I have seen and have a few of these pictures so I know these ladies are truthful with what they tell me...
I mentioned I was interviewing one of the ladies, while videoing her, asking her could the Monsters here us talking and where were they...she said yes they can hear us then turned in her chair and pointed towards the pine thicket...you can see dark objects moving around which I'll bring to MS in October...I also asked her how many Monsters were in this group...she told me 7 or 8 and one was pregnant...maybe that's the one I think is being carried and BTW I have a game camera picture of a group of at least 8...
I am not a firm believer in spirits/haints, ghosts or goblins but from my experiences and seeing with my eyes there is something more to this then I expected...I have seen a dark object attach itself to the lady and something piggy back me for a few minutes after handling that stick that turned the tractor over killing her husband...from being around equipment of all sorts I know for fact that one small stick no more the three ft long and as big around as my little finger didn't turn this tractor over...I believe I could have pulled this small stick up by hand...
I do understand what I write seems a bit farfetched but I know what I see on video and in pictures...and to be honest...I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it...
Excellent! I must have missed that! Did you get it early on?
Ah, from the sound of it they have a full blown haunt going on. Would be interesting to look up the land ownership, family history etc and try to get some information on it. Sometimes that helps explain things and sometimes not. Usually where there is one ghost others will be attracted ....sometimes other energies that haven't ever been human are attracted, like the white "bunnies". That stick must have something really unpleasant attached to it. Or maybe that area of land has always been strange and was disturbed when they built on it?
They aren't afraid or worried about the strangeness? They don't mind the weird stuff going on?
Yes I did Cindy...by Monster Hunter
Nothing on video or game cameras since...as far as the ladies being afraid...I really don't know but quite sure they're concerned from time to time...
is very possible. I remember once visiting a property outside Columbus, Texas with my very curious (and he thought psychic) son. He picked up a stick from inside the house and wanted to take it back to our house. I told him to put it back where he found it. He did put it back but wasn't happy about it. We all brushed the dust from the house & grounds from the bottom of our feet before wer drove home. At that time, we lived in a house that had enough "stuff" happening daily and didn't need to INVITE anything else to come in. SO...spirits can attach! And like Cindy said, "not all spirits are nice." Non-human spirits are usually demonic.
In my beliefs, believers go to God at death. I'm not sure where non-believers go; perhaps they DO stick around down here. Some of my fellow believers think most "haints" people are now experiencing are really demon impersonations of dead humans. I, however, don't really know what they are...
IF we are in the last day before the great gathering or snatching up of believers in Christ--and I believe that we are--then the veil that separates the natural from the supernatural world IS very thin. Interest in paranormal investigations, ghosts etc. is more popular today than I ever recall it ever being before. When I was 12 or so, you only got to watch horror movies at Halloween; now, television programs and movies about ghosts, vampires and werewolves are everyday stuff. I'm not surprised by what you've seen on that lady's property at all!
MC...the pond by our camp...by Monster Hunter
What Jake saw in the pond...by Monster Hunter
The other foot...by Monster Hunter
Here's the deal...by Monster Hunter
Jake goes down to hang a few cameras...one for deer the other on a large well used trail on the north side...he drives to the pond to look around, yeah I taught him well, and sees a line of old tracks...it's hard to really make out the tracks since they're old but it does look maybe like Monster...
Another picture...by Monster Hunter
I'm not real sure since the tracks are old but if this is an accurate Monster track you can see how narrow the heel is on Monsters here...wide ball...narrow heel...Monster...
Water is getting scarce here...by Monster Hunter
Jake said there were tracks of every animal that live in this habitat around the pond...even a buzzard was perched nearby...

We had one heck of a rain yesterday for about an hour, hour n a half. Course I caused it to rain. I watered my garden and fruit trees for 3 hours the night before.
for days over 100 here! Not only Lousiana is suffering from a drought but all of Texas--$5.2 billion agricultural/livestock loss--and it extends all the way up to the mid-west. My Iowa cousin told me that in July they had one day of 107 degrees and the humidity was staggering. Now that's saying something. It's been a truly wierd weather year so far.
David has been looking for one to cast. Good quality is hard to come by, ours we find either look like Jakes find or are under water.
Maybe we can get back down to MC this afternoon...by Monster Hunter
There's a few places I need to look over and I sure want to look around the ponds...if we find tracks there either in a sandy or muddy substrate...the ground is as hard as a rock so no tracks to be found unless it's in a sandy or muddy area around a pond...
8:24 PM...by Monster Hunter
101 degrees...this is crazy...
It was only 94 here yesterday and it started out at 70. Felt like fall for a day or 2.
Different names but same initials...by Monster Hunter
so they must be kin...
I make dang sure I'm off in a cove, where no one can see me before I strip down so NEHH hehe
Decided to go to an area I had not been to since last November due to lack of activity.
I took David and my youngest son with me. They set up to fish while I prowled the woods. I followed what I thought were older trails to a couple of bedding areas.
One bedding location had a well used trail that required quad travel to use. So I went quad where needed.
This trail led right to the water.
In the water was this print.
I saw about 15 to 20 buzzards across the river about 100 yards or so down from me going to town on something the brush and brambles were to thick for me to go any further to see what they were munching on.
Along about 19:30 I put David fishing by the tree line. For some reason he seems to attract monsters, I had hid a recorder in that area inside the tree line that he didnt know about. I was using a directional Bionic ear since my hearing is shot. At about 20:45 David asked if I can hear something doing a poor imitation of an owl. I didnt here it. For some reason he was getting real nervous. At about 21:00 David says Did you here something hit the side of that trash can? I didnt here that either. About 20 minutes later he gets up and moves all his fishing stuff by me, I asked him why he moved he said "I'm not setting over there anymore. Up to this point I havent heard a thing and thinking the night was going to be a bust.
I walked over to where he had been and was adjusting my head phones and broke out in goosebumps from head to toe, its 97 degrees, I'm thinking whats going on with me? When I glanced back up I can only describe what appeared to be a haystack take a side step to the right, into denser cover not five foot from me.
I was shocked as I never heard a thing. I went over to David got a flash light, told him to get the camera ready. The thing had stepped behind a large drooping limb. I walked over to the limb, still had sweaty goosebumps reached out grabbed the large limb and jerked it back to expose nothing.
Went into the tree line never saw a thing.
Excellent report Darrell...by Monster Hunter
I especially like using your son for bait...LOL...a true Monster Hunter...
Go to a likely spot look for fresh sign, put out bait and let the monsters come to you.
A lot easier than trying to chase one down......lol
Must be nice to have your very own version of Rick at your command hehe. Great report man and KNOW all about those goose pimples. Suckers will put em on ya and fast
Nice used trails...by Monster Hunter
In your estimation how big was the track?...
Looked to be 13 to 14 inches.
Listened to the recorder audio inside the tree line and you can here footfalls being placed real carefull coming towards the recorder this happens about 20 min before David evacuates his post.
Will tranquilize him next time to keep him in place longer.
Whatever it was I saw side step was close enough to reach out and touch him.
He likes to fish enough to pay the price.
Use rope Darrell...by Monster Hunter
Tie David to a tree without him having any sharp instruments...
Pretty good situations and have never had that happen before. I had know idea anything was anywhere near us. I was completely caught off guard, which worries me.
Monster wanted to be your friend...by Monster Hunter
and you scared him off...I do know the feeling of not knowing anything was near me...happened to me one night in South East TX. when I went to relieve myself...pucker factor for sure...
for sure. LOL SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I like the idea of tying him to a tree....LOL
I think he gets complacent, we only have action on average of about 1 out of every ten trips.
Over the last three years the monsters have revealed a pattern of activity. Late August - October they become very active. I think like other animals they try to fatten up for winter.
Almost all my good nights have fallen in these months.
I will also be very active during this time.
I hate it...by Monster Hunter
But I'm going to "try" and finish off watching the rest of the video today...late afternoon yesterday and this morning I haven't seen anything...and I mean nothing...
|This message has been edited by tiny from IP address 220.127.116.11 on Aug 16, 2011 10:02 AM|
I can see you hit rewind about 5 times to watch the dog trot by. Is there much wildlife around there? Birds, deer, coon? Anything?
Once in a Blue Moon...by Monster Hunter
I'll see a few deer...see her dogs off and on all day and night and on occasion a bird...every now and then I'll see something I have no idea what it is...go back and watch it several times and move on...to many night and days of video to watch something I have no idea what it is...
Finally finished...by Monster Hunter
The last couple of days and nights were quiet other than the dogs running around...before I changed the lights the first time I would see a rabbit every now and then so they may have been chasing a rabbit...did see a glow that appeared to have a head and shoulders...popped up and was stationary for a few minutes and disappeared...couple hours later the same glowing object...someone in the house was turning a light on and I was seeing some type of reflection on the other side of the house...porch support pole had a large shadow come across it...no idea what caused it and there wasn't anything on any of the other cameras...where the track was found I see a dark shadow cross, this is almost out of the light and cameras range...I watch and see this shadow moving around...it comes closer to the light and camera and I can see a rather long tail...one of the dogs...
Didn't see any deer or any wild life other than a few birds...
looking like head and shoulders?? How very strange! Wow.
Just out of curiosity, do you think there is less nocturnal wildlife than there should be? Like maybe the local critters might think that house is a good place to stay clear of?
Think the shadow is a monster?
I'm glad you are finally done!
A few deer...by Monster Hunter
I have captured a few deer on my game cameras and saw two or three on video running crazy in her back yard...I watch her small dog go out a short distance from the house, come back and see these deer go nuts running back and forth...I do see a few birds on video off and on but haven't found any bird nests and yes I do look for birds nests...lack of seeing wild life on video maybe because of the heat...
The shadow is large blacking out this support pole...if it was a Monster it had to walk under one of the cameras but there isn't any video...when I go back down I'll adjust the cameras to 5 power and broaden out the line of site...I did this on one camera pointed at the house but when I do the other camera I should be able to see the complete back of the home and part of an out building this shadow came from...
Finger prints from something...by Monster Hunter
As you can plainly see I am not a finger print photo taker...but you can see a finger or thumb print and a smear of a finger below...she noticed this print a few days before my visit...BTW...I took about five pictures of these prints and believe it or not this was the best one...
but in the reflection of the door in the lower right corner of the window are is that a face of a woman with dark hair or a bonnet?
The lady may have been behind the door...by Monster Hunter
I can't see what you're talking about but I do know she was with me and may have been inside at the time of the picture...you know I suffer from CRS Nellie...
Keep up the great work Bro
About man size I would think Don...by Monster Hunter
To be real honest it was so bright outside that day the prints were hard to see...other pictures didn't have any sign of prints at all...
Another picture...by Monster Hunter
Maybe see a few marks but really nothing but my jeep full of equipment and tools...
are all of the smudge marks in the photo?
It seems as though there are several objects of some kind of energy coming from the ground surrounding your Jeep?
There is also two objects in the white car. To me it looks as though someone is sitting in drivers seat looking at you! There is also something less definitive in the rear seat.
The little dog behind your bumper seems to be watching one of these energies forming in front of him.
Enlarge the photo and you will clearly see what I see.
I don't know LW...by Monster Hunter
But I took a second picture in about the same spot...look this one over...maybe what we see in the first are finger and hand smudges...
I may have moved before taking this last picture...by Monster Hunter
since the smudges, whatever, has moved...I simply can't remember but usually take a couple of pictures before moving around...
That's what it looks like to me, anyway. I'm not the best photo interpreter, however.
The biggest anomaly to me is in the drivers seat of the white car.
When I adjust the lighting in an editing program, most of the smudges disappear, however the objects in the car remain.
Always hard to figure without taking the photo itself.
I suggest others play with the photo in an editing program and see if the white car objects remain.
Always good to have several sets of eyes evaluating photos.
BTW Lone Wolf...by Monster Hunter
When I was down her smaller dogs head was weirdly swelled up...she said she thought it was caused by a snake bite which it probably was...but the poor mutt looked like her head was flat from being run over...watching video I thought about what you said about the man's cat...
I've had a few of my coon dogs get snake bit over the years and their heads would swell unlike her dogs head...mine would get round headed or get a round knot where bitten...hers was more flat...
It would be very coincidental if smudges landed in the front and back seats like that. In the second car photo I no longer see the smudges in the car. The one that was in the rear seat now looks to be above the car and the one in the front seat looks to be near the front tire. I do not have the best or a very high resolution computer screen, however. Could be that MH twisted the camera trying to get a better shot of the window smudges? Wish I was more computer inclined and I would overlay the images and rotate them to see if I could make the smudges match.
The shutter is not opening...by Monster Hunter
completely Nellie...I've had this camera for years...I replaced it some time back with Jake using the new one...left it on his truck or something and ran over it...so I'm back to my older camera...takes good pictures but when I turn it on I manually have to finish opening the shutter...I have a newer digital camera...one of those small pieces of crap...it does okay but I'm afraid I'll break it...definitely not for my field use...
Day three...by Monster Hunter
I spent the weekend watching video...I haven't seen any Monsters what so ever...I was told her neighbor thought she saw one Wednesday around 5 PM...I have gone through that afternoon video more than several times without seeing anything...however:...the Monster can walk just inside the tree line and I am unable to see it other than movement which I can see but think it's the wind blowing and moving the lower hanging pine limbs...there are dark spots but from what I can see these dark areas are stationary...with the limbs being moved by wind gives the illusion the dark objects are moving...
Still a week to watch...eyes are crossed so I'm taking a break...
since you have started videoing?
I have no idea if it's the cameras or the heat...by Monster Hunter
But yes...the trails in the open are grown over while the trails in the timber are still being used...apparently they are or a few younger one's are coming around the house...
would be. Bad enough trying to listen to hours of audio
You would not believe how boring it is Cindy...by Monster Hunter
Same areas over and over again...when I see something, no matter if it's a dog or whatever, I go back and watch it several times just to refresh my eyes and brain
Could be anything - it is pretty dark
Could be a Monster...by Monster Hunter
Certainly isn't a deer...my problem...why wait days before reviewing your video?...
I don't know if this has been a topic on the board but total serendipity led me to cross paths this very evening with the guy who rode in the van on top of Smokey's newly sold stinking "bigfoot corpse" all the way to necropsy.
Have y'all heard this story ?
As far as I can remember Doc...by Monster Hunter
It hasn't been discussed on our forum...send us a URL or tell us the story...
I just blind lucked into the guy who was a film student at Centenary who was with the professor who got interested in the topic and eventually bought the corpse off Smokey Crabtree and literally rode on top of the stinking display casket to necropsy. Apparently, a local surgeon was selected to perform the investigation and it was determined to be a TIGER ! I think this part was reasonably verified and the claws, skin and head had been removed and the rear legs were mistaken for big feet. The rest of the story seems to be that this was dumped after being shot and skinned at some exotic big game ranch. Perhaps you may be able to get more info but on further examination of his pictures this seems a credible story to me.
Smokey is an appropriate name for the man...by Monster Hunter
When Bobby and I first saw this on video, years back, we both knew it was a large cat...Smokey had a taxidermist claim he hadn't seen anything like this skeleton hinting towards human like skeleton...I do know a few that saw this skeleton, listened to Smokey blowing his smoke and got sucked in with this sham he was pulling...
Smoke tells a good story but he's not a BF researcher by any means and has never had a sighting...IMO...he's FOS...
I don't know if this has been a topic on the board but total serendipity led me to cross paths this very evening with the guy who rode in a van on top of Smokey's new sold stinking "bigfoot corpse" all the way to necropsy.
Have y'all heard this story ?
After spending hours going through video the only thing that has occurred with any significance are my eyes are crossed...see the dogs multiple times with her latest addition a throw away hound someone left on the road...the basxxxx...this hound apparently sleeps on the back porch and in a nice dug out hole behind the porch...every now and then I see this mutt jump up and haul axx around the house...no idea if it's being chased or heard a noise checking it out...
A few anomalies or maybe my eyes are going bad from watching endless hours of video...
She's been hearing knocking sounds coming from the area I have a camera pointed but so far I haven't seen anything that is or could knock...could be the dog laying against the back door, which I can't see, scratching...other parts of the house she's been hearing knocking sounds are not covered by camera...
The area where we found the first track is covered by a camera...the last track isn't since it's in an area which is completely dark that has shrubbery and trees...as I watch video I'm constantly thinking about camera placement but the cameras are pointed in directions where she has seen and taken pictures of Monsters...hooked up my mic using 12 volt power from one of the cameras which instantly killed the camera so back to buying another 12 volt adapter...
Something weird...as I drove down the road to her home my car air conditioner quit blowing on high...other speeds were okay...I had a call on my cell...missed the call so I redialed...it rang twice and went completely dead...nothing...the battery was charged since I charged it in my jeep on the way down...here's the crazy part...I get up Saturday morning driving to the co-op for dog food...the air conditioner worked on high...when I got home my cell phone began working again...
I do understand this sounds a bit crazy and at times I do feel as if I'm a damn lunatic for chasing Monsters but there has to be a rational explanation why things happen when I go down there...SD cards missing, limbs resting on my trail cameras, computer won't come on, weird face and a floating mist on camera, something getting the fried chicken and apples without me getting any video or pictures of the culprit(s), phone going completely dead, air conditioner problems...two cameras that I adjust that are completely clear when I leave somehow get a bit out of focus...multiple somethings appear running from the back porch that are about the size of rabbits but aren't rabbits...this happened when I see the dog who then walks off of the porch...I've looked at this portion of video numerous times thinking maybe a family of coons raiding the dogs food but it's kind of a white misty looking substance scooting from the porch at ground level...the video is clear enough to see the dogs so I should be able to make out what these are but can't...
The lady had, key word had, two limb trimmers...they were on her table on the back porch last time I saw them...both pairs are gone...she searched her house and Josh and I didn't find them when we walked around several weeks back...but over the years she has had many items misplaced...tools scattered, plastic gas containers moved, plastic chairs moved from the porch to another area, water hoses carried off, deer antlers that were nailed, large nails, to the header of a building seven feet off of the ground torn down and missing...I found one of these deer antlers out in the field...as a matter of fact one of her members of the family was accused of stealing these gas containers and gasoline when the containers were moved to the back of the property...of course the member said she was innocent of stealing...
Next month will be one year of my first visit from a report of large tracks found with one being cast...in this past year she has taken more than several pictures and I have several more from game cameras...I have what appears to be Monsters on a video moving in a tree line as I was interviewing one of the contacts...what's so neat about this video is the lady is known to have physic abilities...during the interview I asked her could the Monsters hear us and where were they now...she said yes they can hear us, turned and pointed towards the pine thicket where you can see some dark objects of various sizes moving about...that kind of opened my eyes as far as anyone having physic abilities...IMHO...this lady does have this ability...
Back to watching more video...
Eric Beckjord had a quote similar to this: Bigfoot, it's weirder than you can think.
Weird Stuff,by Grumpy
Had a friend of mine tell me he was fishing with a friend on a foggy morning and heard noises in the woods along the shoreline where they both saw men on horse back dressed in Confederate uniforms riding through the woods..... they started the boat engine and called it a day..............
I'm mostly Redneck and don't believe in...by Monster Hunter
the ghost and goblin weirdness but to be honest there just might be something to all of this nonsense...only in the past few years have I seen things I can't explain and I'm not talking Monsters...one thing that sticks in my shallow mind is the black thing that wrapped around the ladies neck close to an old trailer during day light hours...around 3 to 3:30 PM...saw this and recorded it on video showing it to both the lady and her neighbor...what's weird...I did the same walk through before they did and handled the stick that supposedly caused her husbands tractor to turn over and kill him...when I got back to the DVD they told me to watch the video...sure enough...a black object piggy backed me for a short while at the same spot...
Earlier going through video...I see part of the field light up that's on the opposite side of where the cars are parked...went back and looked at all the cameras thinking lightening...only this one camera had this light at 4:30 AM...after reviewing this video back and forth for a while it dawned on me the grass is too high in this area for it to be car lights...still no video of Monsters but I'm only about half way through...eyes are crossed so I think I'm going to take a nap...
And BTW...I might be losing some of my Redneckness...
MH, I'd feel better if you didn't handle that stick anymore.....
It is tempting Cindy...by Monster Hunter
A few weeks back I saw the stick on the freezer...I nearly went over and handled it just to see what would happen if anything...
|This message has been edited by tiny from IP address 18.104.22.168 on Aug 15, 2011 12:20 AM|
If I thought a stick caused my husband to die I would sure burn it or try to dispose of it permanently somewhere! Do you know why she keeps it around?
I really don't know...by Monster Hunter
and haven't asked...the stick is years and years old but has a peculiar feel to it and it is not brittle or rotten...I'll ask her next time I go down...no doubt she'll tell me....great lady...
The lady encourages paranormal activity on her property.
Even if she has not willingly encouraged the activity, she certainly perpetuates it.
If she disposes of the stick, the activity will continue as the entities there are too firmly entrenched there.
If she REALLY wanted to clear her property of all negative energy she could.
It is interesting though to follow along with Jim's conversion of skeptic to believer.
Seeing really is believing......
I saw my Dad, after he died, and some other strange stuff has happened. I think the universe is stranger than we can imagine (as someone else said). I'm not kidding about seeing my Dad, guys.
The stick worries me. I agree with the negative energy assessment, Lone Wolf. The little bunny type critters worry me, too. The effect on the camera batteries is a classic.
MH, do you ever get the willies out there??
No I haven't yet...by Monster Hunter
I do know a few have gone with me feels a weirdness...One night coming in...and don't go around telling this...I stopped at the dumpsters to throw some trash away a few miles from her house...got back in the jeep and was on my way...had a feeling someone was in the back seat of the jeep...stopped, opened both back doors, looked in the back and there wasn't anything but my equipment...the other time was on video when it "appeared" something piggy backed me for a few minutes...but I didn't feel anything but saw with my eyes something...walking the property is no different than walking MC...
At MC there are times and places I feel some weirdness...one place as I'm driving by but that is seldom and been so long ago I can't remember when...some years back before the rock roads...
Some time back Jake and I are down rabbit hunting...right at dark I shoot a rabbit down a lane about 40 yards from the road...as I shot the rabbit it hopped into the brush next to the lane...I walked down and as I bent over to get the rabbit every hair on my body stood up...I stood still for a few minutes hoping to hear something...quiet as a church mouse...I walked back to the truck without hearing, smelling or seeing anything...Jake and I didn't hear, see or notice anything before this happened...
BTW...we killed the rabbits for an older man who could only eat wild game for some reason...
and opened the back doors of the car, or did it accompany you to her house? Have you ever felt you've taken something home with you from her house?
This occurred after I left her home Cindy...by Monster Hunter
I stopped at the dumpsters to throw away some trash...everything seemed and was fine as far as I knew...after being in the jeep and a few miles down the road is when I thought someone was in the back seat of the jeep...after opening the doors and looking in I started out again and didn't think anything more about it...I can't believe I imagined someone in the jeep with me...if I did it would be a first since I do quite a bit of night time traveling from areas of activity and haven't ever experienced anything close to that...
I've never have doubted you Lone Wolf...by Monster Hunter
LW and I have had some interesting conversations concerning this area...I doubt I could handle what LW has handled nearly all his life...Monsters...yes...haints...no...
to keep out of this conversation cause no one appreciates a skeptic. lol
I live on the Ottawa River that travels from the Gulf of St. Lawrence and into the north. Champlain sailed right past my door. In this area there were lots of Indian battles and the natives did their best to kill and torture as many Iroquois as they could. And visa versa. If you could have a light lit along the shore here where every person was killed or died in the last 2,000 years, it would probably look like New York City. I wonder where all of those ghosts are?
I grew up in an area...by Monster Hunter
of river bottoms T...fished, camped, hunted all up and down the rivers and the bottoms...I was a non-believer and to be honest didn't think anything about anything other than what I was doing at the time...no Monsters, no entities other than what we caught or killed...we just didn't believe any of the old tales...I was a non-believer until I was in my early forties...drove up on something sitting or squatting by a feeder and found tracks the next year...a person would be hard pressed to have spent as much time as I have in the woods...
As far as ghosts are concerned...I had something happen years ago when I first got back from Viet Nam...didn't see anything but heard something open the front screen door, the door and start up the stairs...I have no idea what did this but something did...I do know one thing...I jumped from the top landing to the second with war on my mind...nothing was there...
I see some strange anomalies at times in the video...a face, a drifting mist of various sizes...I have no idea what these things are but they're there on video...I'm not a firm believer in haints but IMHO there is much more to this than meets the eye...people will tell lies...video doesn't lie...maybe misinterpreted but video is accurate...
of monsters (which I believe are not paranormal) and any sort of paranormal anything. And, since he is a skeptic, he has never, ever, read anything about any of it or taken an interest because it couldn't possibly be true, so why waste his time? So in my opinion he can't really give an informed opinion about monsters or the paranormal existing or not. He one time gave me a book titled something like "Why Smart People Believe Stupid Things" by Michael Shermer (I think). I was not pleased, but dutifully read it cover to cover, and it didn't really refer to anything I'm interested in, except one sentence. Shermer actually put in black and white that Bigfoot might exist! Shermer believed the evidence made a good case for it's existence. I figured my FIL surely didn't know that one sentance was in that book! I've never told him about seeing my Dad or any of the other odd things that have happened, but did tell him about the GCBRO and have regretted it ever since.
You might be interested in some of the current theories about quantum physics and geomagnetic field effects on the brain associated with the paranormal. Which makes it not paranormal but something normal that we don't quite understand yet. Like how a bumble bee flies can't be explained by current physics. There is a huge body of literature out there and if you are an interested and motivated enough skeptic, you should sift through some of the books written since about 2002. Sure a lot of it is crap, but there is some really good recent stuff published.
and I agree with just about everything you said. I certainly won't be surprised the day that bf is confirmed to exist. I do question some of the things folks see though who automatically assume it's a bf or caused by a bf. Still, it's easy to question what other folks see if you weren't there and I'm totally aware of that. In any case, it's all interesting and I never feel uncomfortable giving my opinion here (unless Grumpy is around) Thanks Cindy.
makes sensitive people to it become suddenly nauseous and paranoid. Paranormal investigators assume high EMF, or sudden unexplained jumps in EMF during investigations are a sign of spirit activity in an area. I don't know if that's true. I don't take any equipment with me when I go into haunted places. I just take ME.
I've had "feelings" in haunted hotels, have seen people I find out later WEREN'T there and I've been in East Texas felt sick to my stupid and eyes watching me for NO apparent reason. There may be something to the theory that BF may be able to emit some sort of EMF pulse wave that affects people in their area. BUT of course, I've no idea if it's possible b/c no body has been autopsied yet (that we know for real).
So, make me a believer! And in my opinion, it's going to get worse!
sorry. I type faster than I think sometimes. LOL
not all people see the paranormal dimension that surrounds us all.
I have had full apparitions appear in front of me and others where they cannot see it, and still others where people look at me wide eyed and say, "did you see that"?
I'm not sure why some people can or cannot see spirits, demons, etc.
Children and animals are usually very sensitive.
I know that my reasons are not scientific, however I have shown Monster Hunter a photo of a
physical attack on a friend that occurred right in front of me.
Not trying to convince anyone, of what I believe to be true, just throwing out my experiences as discussion points.
P.S. Jim, I know what the rabbit like shadows are and they are not friendly......be careful.
Looked like five of them came from the back porch LW...by Monster Hunter
Not in a big hurry but moving fairly fast paced...I went back and watched it several times thinking..."what the heck are those"...not rabbits or coon but something that looked kind of football shaped...also there was a banana shaped object that floated by on another night...
Taking a break now LW...I know people must think I'm nuts but as I'm watching video a few minutes ago I see a flash on the ground about the size of a fire fly which I think it is...it flickers a time or two and goes completely off...when I see it again it turns from a dim light to what appears to be two yellow eyes...now this is directly on the ground about 15 ft. from the camera...here's the kicker...this shine I can see in the camera but the light is back behind this eye looking shine...there's no way it can be eye shine since there is not any light to illuminate the eyes...this was off and on in about 3 minutes of video...when it went off the last time it stayed off...I magnified this shine and it does look like a pair of eye shine IMO...small like a small cat or dog but without the cat or dog...
BTW...I haven't seen any fire flies in any of the video up to this point but have seen fire flies in other previous video...after seeing this whatever the dog runs out past the camera...I can see his shadow off and on and it reminds me of a mutt barking...I have no idea where the dog went to or what he was doing since he hasn't come back into the camera yet...but I do know the dog is still there since I saw him last time down...
I'm surprised her dog is still alive......
I have seen them in either black or white.
Be advised, best NOT to take any of YOUR dogs down there.
IYO...what the hexx are these things?...n/tby Monster Hunter
but I have seen them travel in packs of a dozen or so, and they always drive animals nuts.
The ones I have seen are about the size of a wiener dog, are either black or white, and move very fast.
One guy I know reported having them in his apartment and his cat ended up chewing itself so badly it was constantly bleeding and eventually was found dead with a broken neck in a puddle of blood.
He fled his apartment shortly after his cat was killed.......
of these rabbit things and why the dogs might be threatened?
In addition to the story I posted about my friends cat, I have also been told that dogs will chase them much like when chasing a laser pointer.
One guy I know said his dogs would chase these things into walls and even out the door almost running into traffic!
I also have seen them running in large packs of a dozen or more.
I have seen a few in my home, but my two dogs did not see them at he time.
I was once in my office at my former job with a small child during a kids at work day.
At least 20 of these things came in the door and surrounded the little boy who was seated on a chair at the time.
As I picked up the boy to vacate the office, they became agitated and went directly up the walls, and towards the door as if trying to block my way!
Not sure what these things are but I do know I do not want them around my animals, or anyone else I care about for that matter.
I have heard refered to as "imps", for lack of a better label. This man saw these forms, about the same size and shape, in his home, and they were black. I don't remeber if he had a pet or not. I hope not after your account of the cat and child.
Could they be Demons? (Sounding like Dana Carver's 'church lady)
I sure hope u r coming in October, I truly want to meet and talk with you about some things I have experienced but don't understand at all/
I always enjoy your posts!
you need an "open" mind to see this stuff. Most of the time, I keep my mind "closed" to it. Silver Fox "opened" his highly skeptical mind to it once in a house in Galveston noted for its ghosts ("The Oaks, also known as the 1839 Menard House). He challenged the house ghost to prove she was there and she did so in a big way. Gary has kept his mind "closed" to paranormal anything since that experience.
When we lived in his haunted Alief house, he never believed that his son and I had negative experiences until we walked in one Sunday afternoon to discover that someone or "something" had completely messed up the house from front to back and had torn apart a woven straw basket. Then, an alarm system we had installed kept going off for no reason and we heard the sound of glass breaking late at night. When we investigated where the glass broke, no broken glass was found. Weird to say the least.
Yes an open mind is a necessity.
You didn't believe in Bigfoot either 15 or so years back!
Sometimes you have just gotta see before it starts to register that there is more stuff out there than your prefabricated notions allowed for.
Just gotta keep an open mind I guess.

Seeing is believing Rick...by Monster Hunter
I was a non-believer until I saw one and found tracks...
3 a.m. to 6 a.m. "dead" time for nothing, MH.
Through my own personal study, i am convinced that these creatures are a distant relative to the Raphaiem. These were the "giants" mentioned in the Bible and in other ancient texts from a few thousand years ago. They are part natural and part supernatural, and i dont think anybody understands the full nature of that.
They are completely physical but there is a bizarre spiritual dimension to them that can not be easily explained. from the bizarre foul odor that accompanies them, to their long almost painful howls, to the macabre affect they have on all natural wildlife around them as well as people.
No other animal has this affect on the world around it, and no other animal, as many as their obviously are, could so easily and uncannily remain unproven. You cant seem to ever get one on film, or picture.. only their cries. something almost always goes wrong, or acts strangely when attempting to film them or capture a clear image of them. even when people are completely 100% prepared, ready and waiting for an encounter.
The indications are there, it is just hard for people to accept such a concept.
They're some strange critters alright...by Monster Hunter
And you could be right but I have not read or know what a Raphaiem could be...please inform me...thanks...
As far as pictures are concerned...we have some that are quality but at a distance...I have some video...not quality by any means...not any video with my camera system I have mounted other than a few dark objects at a distance...
There are several decendants of the "giants" talked about in the old testament that most people dont even know about or have overlooked. Here are a few verses for people to look out and see if this doesnt strike a chord.
Gen 14:5 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
Deu 1:28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.
Deu 2:10-11 The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims.
Deu 2:20 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
Deu 9:2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!
Jos 11:21 And at that time came Joshua, and cut off the Anakims from the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel:
There is more, but this gives you an idea that these things are not imagined but part of everyday life. They lived in the mountains and were numerous back in those days. You can trace the origin of these beings back to the Nephelim. If you notice the strange way they named these various groups of giants they all have root forms of angelic beings tied into them. You dont find this anywhere else. They are unique, fearful creatures and there is more than one type even back then. These people knew about all kinds of animals including primates of all types. These were treated and nammed differently.
Its an interesting mystey.. but it does give some indication on why they behave the way they do today towards people, and how there might be a little more to them than just being another undiscovered primate.
Thanks for the information...by Monster Hunter
and I believe you are right...they're more than a simple undiscovered primate...anyone who has been in areas of activity will tell you the same...
are the results of "the sons of God" which were the fallen angels, coming to Earth and mating with human females. These were the giants that resulted. Goliath was one of these "giants" and he had four giant brothers. Am I right, Pastor Tim? One theory I heard promoted on a Christian channel prophesy conference two years ago, said that there will be UFOs that land and that the creatures that come out will be Rephilium or lizard like monsters. The guy who put forth this notion said to remember the Slezstak creatures from Lost World t.v. show. The rumor is that the Grays people have been abducted by are here to "protect us from the lizard men." Yeah, I know--it's way out there. But the giants are mentioned in the bible, guys!!!
Pastor Tim, I agree. Are you familiar with the views of a bible scholar named Chuck Missler? Get my email addy from the moderator. I'd love to exchange emails with you about this subject.
Sharon Warren aka RubyRed
say a prayer when you set foot on the property that no harm or bad things to you or yours will happen. All that stuff happening is just too weird and that is the first thing that I would do if I had to mess with a property like that. I'm not a church-going type person but I know if I need a little Divine help I'm not afraid to ask for it...that's for darn sure! And you shouldn't be afraid either.
Reviewing all those hours of video...it's just fascinating what you're doing...I wish I could help.
God always protects me Nellie...by Monster Hunter
The knocking on her house has me baffled...I still, after hours of watching video, haven't seen anything...I haven't gone through all of the video yet but have watched most of the night time video...nothing I have seen can knock on anything other than a dog sleeping by the back door maybe scratching itself...could be the dog and I may move a camera to where I can see the back door...by video I know the dog sleeps on the back porch at times and a dug hole by the back porch...
I did move another camera to see the back side of the entire house other than one small area but to get into this area they would have to walk in front of one of the cameras...changed the flood lights to spot for distance at night but thinking low lux cameras and replace the spot back with flood...
And yes I would appreciate a fresh set of eyes watching seemingly endless hours of video...I recognize every blade of grass, I know where the dark spots are according to the time of day and know certain movements of the trees and limbs from wind...
My home was built in 1976 and it has loud pops and snaps and knocking sounds especially at night when the house is cooling down. I hear them as well sometimes in the morning. I've got a 18 year old metal roof also...over the last 5 years the noises have gotten louder. They have gotten so loud at times that you can hear them over the TV being on. I think it also depends on the weather we're having at the time on how noticeable they are. It has freaked my husband out a few times because they were so loud! Btw...the noises usually sound like they come from the roof area...so that is why I ask if she knows where they are coming from.
She hears the knocks...by Monster Hunter
At the back of a room and porch that was added on some years back...the roof is a 3 tab shingle...there's not any storm door and her back door fits properly and is not loose at the latch...she hears the knocks at night and at times during the day...I have spent quite a bit of time there and haven't heard anything but the air conditioner running...
I have found Monster tracks at her bed room window, at the back porch and the little girl claimed she saw a Monster crouched down looking in this back room window and again at the bed room window...when I first started investigating the place I was finding large impressions everywhere, puke or crap everywhere...balls of hair with bone and what appeared to be a baby goat or pigs foot in it...
There was a large trail that led from her house to an old out building that split up into more than several trails...these trails are grown over...maybe the camera system spooked them or the heat and they're laying up...I do know when I first visited the place these trails were not there becoming more and more used as fall ended and winter set in...
Trails in the pine thickets appear to being used...some are two ft. wide and beat down...both contacts, neighbors, hear them scream, howl at night on occasion...both contacts have seen Monsters close to their homes...one contact would walk out amongst them and take pictures...
There's an old trailer I put the chicken and apples on where she has seen Monsters and took a picture of a large one standing next to this trailer...I put a large box of fried chicken on top of the trailer...dogs cannot get on this trailer...the box was gone without me getting any video and I haven't found the box as of yet...
This is always good advice whether you're in paranormal locations or sitting in your rocking chair at home. Good to hear that you and the Almighty are in contact. Silver and I always take God with us wherever we go and now attend a nondemoninational church because our former denomination was not teaching Bible prophesy, only ethical living. It was NOT enough for us seekers.
God bless ya real good!
I attended a Catholic school for 7th, 8th and 9th grade and I attended a Baptist school for 10th grade. Then I married into a Baptist family. I have always been close to the Lord even though I don't attend church anymore. I always feel He is there and if I need Him I just let Him know.
right on top of a Ley line (I think thats how those magnetic lines in the earth are spelled) or a spiritual vortex of some kind.
Four toed track...by Monster Hunter
Smaller than the first from 2 weeks ago...started going through the video...the contacts neighbor was visiting with her Wednesday afternoon...she saw a Monster standing back against the tree line where one of the cameras is pointing...when my eyes straighten out I'll watch some more video...I have no idea how anyone can watch television all day without their eyes crossing...
She covered it with a toy car...dog prints every where...had she not covered it would have disappeared...
She does a good job...by Monster Hunter
I saw her on video come out early AM when it was still dark...she had a flashlight and walked around the house where she's been hearing some knocking sounds and found a Monster track...I know grown men that won't do that...
and killed. Check it out.
Old news Don...by Monster Hunter
You needed to take a break about a month ago...LOL...I do believe and IMO...the guy reporting is full of crap and if someone did tell him this...they're full of crap...sooner or later the truth will hopefully be told...
and I always check the board every day. Guess I missed it. OOPSY lol
I'm not sure it was posted...by Monster Hunter
as many as we have that visit our forum I would think someone would have posted it...
AMAZING what they can do now, ain't it?
Amazing...by Monster Hunter
looks better now then before the attack...
you Tues.I had my grandson it was his last day of summer vacation.He had only gotten to stay 2 wks. earlier right after school turned out.Did you find anything interesting other than the terrible heat? Even though it was cooler this wk than last.
Full schedule this week so I'm...by Monster Hunter
going down tomorrow...
I was looking at the list of who all's coming and we're pushing 20 right now!!!! Can't wait
Just think if we invited...by Monster Hunter
all the folks who have sent in reports from MS...be a crowd if they all showed...and we plan on inviting them for Saturday...
we'll see who whos up
I have two Smith & Wesson flashlights that I use constantly. Neither are super bright, but they are bright enough and handy as heck and use AAA batteries.
The first one is the one I keep in the plane. I have never seen this light anywhere else but in pilot supply catalogs. It's called the "Captain's Flashlight" and it is really cool because it has independent buttons for the ten white LEDs and three red LEDs. And, it has a selection for using one or all three red LEDs. This thing is great if you want to get around without killing your own eyes night vision. A link to it is here: http://www.sportys.com/PilotShop/product/11873
The other one is just like the captain's flashlight, but it has 6 white LEDs, and two red, two green, and two blue LEDs. This thing is a great tracking light because of the additional color selections. A link is herehttp://www.opticsplanet.net/smith-wesson-ptech-sw-rbw-rgw-galaxy12-led-flashlight.html
Captains Log...by Monster Hunter
If I were going to fly an airplane that would be the light to have Steve...adjustable for inside the cockpit...smart...I guess using a two million candle spot light would be a bit much in the cockpit...
|This message has been edited by tiny from IP address 188.8.131.52 on Aug 10, 2011 1:04 PM|
The captain's light has that low and high red LED. It's great if you just want to turn on something really dim in the tent or camper, you can just turn on the one red LED. Remember, that after walking out into the dark, it takes about 30 to 45 minutes for the human eye to fully adapt to night conditions. The red LEDs do not kill your night vision. You can turn them on and off, and not have to wait for your eyes to readjust.
Sportsman Guide Lightby Grumpy
found this one this morning, will make a great first light or backup light for either your rifle or research, I buy my 123 batteries in bulk since most of my tactical lights use them. These look good enough I'm going to buy two as backups......
see it has a Strobe feature. If you see a monster I bet that if you hit strobe, it'll confuse it on where it's running so you'd get a better shot. Either that or it's start break dancin LOL
Say you were in the woods researching and you had a monster standing over by a tree and you were really into him hanging around checking you out. You were getting a glimpse of him and you knew for a fact that it was there. Now the question. Would you
A) Keep standing there, no lights on, nothing but enjoying him being there and you getting an occasional glimpse of him as he moved from behind one tree to the next
B)Ease your camera out of your pocket, determine exactly where he was and then snap off as many pics as you could before he was gone, knowing full well that he wouldn't come back that night and maybe never again on a trip to this area
Keep standing there...by Monster Hunter
Knowing if I did get a picture it would be a blur...move around a bit to get him to move or hide behind a tree and make him hunt you...now you are pranking with the Monsters...
don't forget to carry a box of lovely smelling fried chicken!
Plan on going tomorrow...by Monster Hunter
Picked some apples from my tree and will stop by and get some fried bird...plan on moving the cameras around, hooking up the mic and change out the flood lites to spot so I can see if or what is coming to the trailer at night...that's the plan...of course the heat may change my plans...
Totally cool! That has some really interesting possibilities! Didn't you say you have heard them "talking" or mumbling before?
hide behind a large tree and peek out now and then in it's general direction, peek out and then light up only your face with your light, if it's after dark, make funny noises, do what ever it takes to possibly get it to move in closer to check you out....... maybe even play a low volume recording of a child crying..... or a female voice when they know one is not there........
I'd be scared of the Death Snake if I was using the female voice BWAAA HAHAHA SHHHHHHH
We'll talk about it in October................. LOL
that's why I don;t like that Death Snake
BLOW HELL OUT OF CAR HORN.
LOL...Dew...I remember that I think...by Monster Hunter
Monster screams...The Dew blows the horn for me to come get him...
Monster screams...The Dew blows the horn for me to come get him...
Is he kin to Craig? BWAAAA HAHAHA Opps, my bad, Craig just falls asleep when he's out in the woods
Hey, you guys know that I get some of my best sleep when I am out in the woods hunting monsters. lol
I walked right by ya one day and you was snoring.
As someone with no experience i draw from Smokey Crabtree. Get down on the ground and get your camera ready. Smokey said to get down on the ground. Nothing about a camera.As MH said you are messing with him.
I like the having him around longer vs scaring him off. Course Mr Rossi and Baretta we on hand JUST IN CASE he got abit to close. LOL
I'd act like I didn't notice the critter and continue doing what I was doing.Hoping the critter would come loser and closer.And I try to get a picture if posible,and make notes of anything about the critter that I can make.Then I start screwing with it,by doing weird stuff or making weird noises.
As bad as I wanted to hit the spot light, I knew it would end it and I didnt want it to end.
But then again would a possible clear climpse of one be worth it?
I guess you could have done what I did and called grumpy and ask for advice.
Call Bob. All he'd have said was SHOOT HIM L'ZABETH, SHOOT HIM BWAAA HAHA My best Troy from Swamp people imatation hehe
I do have a soft side and am not completely ruthless!!!! There are times to kill and times to chill, and remember, "I always do what the voices in my head tell me to"..............
get me in big time trouble at times. lol
I can't hear the voices...by Monster Hunter
darn ringing in my ears blocks them out...to darn many high powered rifles and shot guns blasts...
Yours Jim lol.
you need to be watching out for the one moving around behind you.
I felt like something was burning a hole in the back of my head
Also I had a similar incident. I was with a "skeptic" riding ATV's. We both noticed a shadow jump from tree to tree about 50 yards away. He immediately jumped on his ATV and rode over there... Never saw anything again since then..... By the way when he rode over there he disappeared on his ATV since the grass was about 6 ft tall. Once he arrived at the tree, turned around and could not see us; he realized that "whatever" had to be 8-10 ft tall......
I think I would be patient, carry on with business, trying not to pay attention to them and take in the moment. All the while trying to get the best look I could get... And like WW said look for others.........
Come on guys. You know there is no such thing as BF! You would just be seeing things! LOL
I completely agree with Mr. Phelps...by Monster Hunter
You folks are suffering from an over active imagination...Monsters...LOL...really?...
I would do when I was in a movie theater a long, long time ago..........whilst watching "Sasquatch - The Legend of Bigfoot"
Cover my face with my hands.......peeking between slit fingers........praying for the movie to end before I see anything TOO traumatic (that didn't work, btw - had nightmares for YEARS).
Would most probably spend the time quietly praying to God that these gentle monsters of the great outdoors just go away and look for tasty berries, so that my guide gets bored and says, "Let's go home."
THAT is what I would do.
In my "cool and collected" mind, I see myself making interesting sounds in order to lure the monsters within decent photo range (perhaps even walking towards these misunderstood creatures and tossing an apple or banana in their way, hoping to open some lines of communication). But then my self-preservation side slaps me upside the head and says, "Snap out of it!"
Yep - A real "he-man" am I.

Mike...you and most...by Monster Hunter
Quite a few talk it...very few actually walk it...
I'm using the wifes camera and It's really not good for walking around in the woods. When you turn it on, it plays some kinda song for a second or 2 and then you have to wait for the lens to screw out, THEN you can take a picture which takes another second of holding the button down. Does anyone know of a good inexpensive camera that will not do the things I described my wifes does. One that when I want to take a digital picture, I can do it quickly and quietly
Go through the setup menu, most allow you to turn off all those annoying problems, I also noticed the detail and focus was a little soft on the posted pics, possibly you need to change several setting depending on the camera..... I am currently using a Nikon from wally world.
Think it was for one of the 50 BDay parties we've had to go to at restaurants over the last couple months LOL I'd like one that if I saw something, I could actually raise the camera up, turn it on and take the pic within just 2 to 3 seconds total time. It'd need to take video as well though
there will be a significant delay after you press the "take a picture" button. They all just do that. Just a fraction of a second, but noticeable.
Digital cameras and digital video cameras...expensive to inexpensive...walmart has about the same junk...I mean items at about the same price...
As mentioned...go into the menu and set the camera for your needs...easy and simple process...
Also take little video's nowdays. Grumpy is right - I just figured out how to turn that stupid sound off on my little Sony Cybershot - only had it for 3 years now...and every time I took a picture it made as really loud "camera" sound that I also shut off.
In low light I think all the affordable digitals are going to take their sweet time to capture a picture. However I noticed that there is a setting on the back for "low-light" and it seems to speed up the whole deal - and just ask Bob!
Cindy, that's only because way back in the days when we wrote with rocks that was my profession...... both in the Military and for years after photography and lab work was my profession. It has all changed now with digital but the basics are still the same. Plus turning off all those bells and whistles extends battery life, it's the same with those who use radios when we are in the woods.... turn off that roger beep or any key pad beeps so anything within a mile doesn't know where you are......
"wrote with rocks"...LMAO...by Monster Hunter
You are an old fart Grumpy...LOL
October the 14-16 are the official dates and I'm in the process now of closing out the details.
If you plan on coming and camping with us or just coming down the the day to hang out, eat some good food, and swap some tales, please let me know. I need a real good head count to make this work.
The report I just put up is about 6 or 7 miles from the area and I've got several reports within 6-8 miles so we will be in an active location. This is inside a national forest so we have a few restrictions. They do have a couple of roads you can use your 4 wheelers on but not really enough to warrant bringing it IMO None are allowed inside the campgrounds. NO Firearms are allowed in the camping area and they do lock the front gate from 10 PM to 6 AM.
We can however leave your car at the front gate and shuttle folks from there back to the campgrounds if we go out at night. It'll be safe at the front gate as we'll be way off the beaten path.
No information on where we'll be will be is to be given out to anyone unless they are coming down to camp. I want this to be a safe trip and don't want anyone coming in on us trying to hoax us.
The fees are $20 per night and for some of you older people that have a senior pass, it's only $13. They have water and power hookups, a restroom with a shower and if you wanna fish, well, they have a nice lake there but make sure you get a Miss. Fishing License if you do fish.
Please email me at email@example.com before October the 1st so I'll know just how many are coming. I really need a good head count on this. Thanks and I look forward to seeing you guys.
Can we drive to the camp ground Don...by Monster Hunter
and leave our vehicles inside the gate?...
until they lock the gate I THINK at 10 PM. It closes for day use (fishing, swimming) at 6 but they'll stay open later than that. It's about 15-20 minutes to the nearest store, kinda like MC so make sure you bring an extra cooler for extra Ice
What about medical emergencies, at night..... I can understand the day use area being closed but have never seen a USFS campground with a locked gate unless there is a 24/7 attendant to unlock for police or ambulance if needed.
they have an older couple that lives in the first camp site as you enter the grounds
handicap access, medical emergencies.........
To many years in Law Enforcement and SAR, I always think of the 'What If's', and Always Plan Ahead!!! Like having charged batteries for my hover round chair.......
The fella over seeing things is a really nice fella and I can't wait ti talk to him again and pick his brain. THINK the ole boy is still not telling me everything. I just have that feeling
ATV use,by Grumpy
after reviewing the ATV use in MS we should probably leave them at home, I plan to... below is a copy and paste from the USFS web page;
ATV / Off Highway Vehicle Use
Currently the use of All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) on the National Forests in Mississippi is limited to designated areas located on the ranger districts. State law prohibits ATVs/OHVs from being operated on public roads, US Forest Service roads are considered public roads.
It's everyone else that tries to keep up with you that needs one. LOL
My endurance and stamina never came back to what it was after all that radiation therapy.
but least we can keep up with you now without having thorns in our butts form blazing through the briars. Just ask Darrell about that from Oklahoma

David and I will drive the distance and be there.
Glad to hear of your luck Don. We enjoyed the report.
Reminded me of Davids and my experience in 09.
Looking forward to seeing everyone, its been awhile.
Good to hear you're coming...by Monster Hunter
It has been a while...
We both have some catching up to do, it's been way to long and have both survived some serious medical problems since our last hike..... you missed a fun time in OK several months ago so hopefully all the old crew can make it to MS, rain or shine we will have a good time at the luxury resort DonDon has put us up at........
Lookin like this is gonna be a sho nuff great time with everyone that's coming
Any women coming? I MAY be able to talk Kelly into it IF she knows some other females are gonna be there.
Will be there to. Hes as good as a woman. Lol
This past Saturday night, Myself, Joey and Tim headed out on a little research trip. We knew the general area we wanted to investigate and I really needed to check out a possible camping site for a future excursion.
Tim came over and we loaded up the truck and headed to go meet Joey in the general area of our trip. Once we met up with Joey, off we went. We headed down through the old backroads that I grew up hunting on as a kid and I even stopped for a second to take a picture of the entrance to my old deer camp. Easing along those old gravel roads and looking around as we did, its easy to see that something could hide out there in these swamps and no one would ever see it.
Upon entering the camp site area, an older man who actually lives in this campground with his wife, overseeing it for the State, told us it was only 10 minutes til he closes the day use area. No problem I said, we just want to look around at a place we can come back and do some camping here in a couple of months.
I had on my trusty GBCRO T Shirt and when I showd it to him, I expected the usual you get from folks. That being Them things real the other response. whateverand they look at you like youre nuts. This went down abit different though as he told us a story from only a few weeks back about a guy seeing a Bear walking down to the water, then standing up and walking around abit, then back down on all 4s and walking back to the woods. Hummm, the location we were at according to everyone Ive ever talked to or from my own stomping around through this area for 15 plus years as a teen and young adult, doesnt have any black bears.
When we were talking about what it could have been, the older gentleman we were talking to just listened and actually agreed on our deduction on what it could have been. Sounds to me that more things have happened there than hes telling us, if he agreed that fast. BTW, this is the same place that a friend of mine got a video of something crossing the road and then stood up on its hind legs.
Anyhow, we drove down through the campgrounds and it was absolutely beautiful. The lake and area around it, is pristine, with large pines on the grounds and some under brush thats only maybe knee high as you can tell they did a controlled burn recently. Its about 7:30 now and we have to find a place to go set up before dark.
We have 3 or 4 places in mind and start with the number one option. CRAP, they have it closed. Number 2? Same thing, they have a bar across the road so its blocked. Its now starting to get dark on us so we head back down a old dead end gravel road about a mile and a half off the main road that has another road off it. CRAP, this one is blocked off as well but now its late and we have to make a decision.
We decided to just stay here but to walk down the blocked off road til we found a good location to set things up. I recon we walked about a mile or so down this road til we all agreed on a setting up spot. There were large pine (24-30) on both sides with scattered underbrush and we could see about 75-100 yards in the fading light and once it got dark, we could still see pretty good in the moonlight.
Once it got good and dark. Tim and I both lit the woods up with some loud howls and I even found a limb and did a couple of sets of woods knocks. They echoed through the woods and we knew that if a Critter was within a couple miles of us, it would hear it. Over the course of the next 4 hours or so, we heard a couple of howls off in the distance, and when Joey went off with his gen 2 Night Vision, he heard a larger limb get broken off just into the woods.
The 2 big highlights of the night were the one that kept coming around us, moving from tree to tree and the bionic bird call. Wed been there about 30-45 minutes when the 2 of them had that, Im being watched feeling. I didnt have it right off the bat but it wasnt long before I got not only the eyes burning a hole in the back of my head feeling, but a general just queasy feeling in my stomach. Ive never had that feeling before so it was a new expierance for me.
Tim and Joey saw the critter the first time it came in around us. They saw it moving from tree to tree and we put the lights on it but never saw a thing. We even went out where we saw it and looked for any signs. With it being mostly pines around us, you couldnt really tell anything, so we went back to the road and sat some more.
It didnt take long to get that being watched feeling again and this time, I saw him moving from tree to tree. Ive been researching for several years now and this was the first time Id had a night time look at one. I assume it was one as it was upright like a man would walk but you talk about covered ground quickly and they are so smooth as the move, almost gliding from tree to tree. It could move silently 12-15 feet so fast that if you had blinked, youd have missed it. It went from our left to right and then back to the left before it got behind a group of 3 trees.
What played into our actually being able to see this thing was the moon was behind the creature. Now my eyes arent quite as good as they used to be but in the fading moon light, you could see it swaying back and forth. They saw it first and finally after they pointed it out to me, I could see it as well.
One funny thing was at one time we were sitting there and Tim Jumps. He was so startled and jumped so much that it actually scared me. When asked about why he jumped, he said he got a real good look at the one as it jumped from tree to tree. This creature was obviously curious about us in a big way because he was only 75-80 feet from us. I even saw something upright, cross the road. That was about 25-30 feet and if it were a deer, it would have had to have had a running start to cross the road that fast.
I tell ya, when the moon sets and you out in the middle of no where, IF GETS DARK. About midnight when we couldnt see our hands in front of our face and had lost that being watched feeling, we decided it was time to head back to the truck to sit there for awhile. We got back to the truck and grabbed something to drink, Man, an ice cold Mountain Dew is some kinda fine when its hot like that. LOL
We sat here til about 1:30 before we left and the only thing that happened was I got for the first time to hear the Bionic bird call not only an owl but a critter doing it as well. Let me tell you, there is NO Doubting the difference in what made the 2 calls. The owl (screech?) when he makes I the call its real soft but when that critter made it, OMG, its a very forceful call. No way a bird could be that forceful with a call. Not sure when but in the very near future, well all be back down here to sit out again. Maybe not in this exact spot but somewhere closeby.
Here's a couple pics of the area.

Looks like you've found that honey hole you've been looking for... Can't wait for October!
Yes that is an excellent report...by Monster Hunter
Sounds like a place we need to be for our get together...Don did good...
Great report Don!by SAsquatcher
Hey are you gonna file it up as a report?
this coming weekend but not sure. Gonna try another spot though
going to take the guys with the quick eyes? Just to make sure you are able to see monsters if they are there? You know. Just in case?
and ISO audit at work on Monday. I want her to get in on the action
Beats the he** out of Crappie fishing don't it ?by SAsquatcher
Now Don is gonna be showing around his nekkid monster hunting pics,,LOL!
Pass on that option. That's what we got you for. How longs it been since you had a pheromone chip stapled to you rear end? hehe
Uhhhh never,,,by SAsquatcher
That's just a vicious rumor started by folks with envy problems!

Sorry but!!by SAsquatcher
They blew it with me, I wouldn't believe them if they told me the sky was blue and the grass green!
I am one of the folk who wrote to the police chief to fire that guy.
Was immediate and a long and lengthy email as well.He hit a nerve,I hit back!
Nothing this guy says is true!
Book Mark the below URL...by Monster Hunter
If you have the slightest interest in Patty or Bigfoot...
The animations are from the Patty film but there are many reports from responsible people seeing creatures that appear to be similar...if these creatures are within the same species the site will give you some informative information needed for your search or interest...
If you're a skeptic you should check this site out to see the impossibility of some man in a cheap costume...
Talking about the screams Pierce said..."it scared me then...it scares me now"...
Oldie but still a good one...
last night watching the remake of the wolfman with benicio deltoro....he was asking the Indian hunting guide, why he used larage and silver tipped bullets, to which he replied "sometimes you hunt the monster, somtimes it hunts you"
The hunter or the prey...by Monster Hunter
I think being hunted by a Monster would weed out quite a few of these BF researchers...I'd have to drag up...

You too Jim,,,by SAsquatcher
If the Monsters were gonna hurt anybody they would have probably taken you and Bobby out quite a few years ago!
They might try and get in your face and prank with you but I think actual harm is not what they are after.
That said, I also do believe that they differ from individual to individual AND under diverse circumstances, for instance, if you shoot one and don't kill it and don't have enough ammo to finish it off or take care of the 3 or 4 that are just out of sight,,,well, I wouldn't want to be in your shoes!
I believe that story from the PNW about the guys shooting one and that night boulders rained down on their cabin is probably true!

You never know Rick...by Monster Hunter
Monsters can at times be Monsters...
For $15 and its a doosey 180 lumens n has a beam distance of 500 meters. Thats 1600 feet !!! Its not a pocket model as it has a pistol grip but it is very light and small. Just a fyi
DonDon wait til you see me new little light, when mounted on one of my weapons it will blind the critters even if I miss................ it's a 4Sevens G5
Since i dont have mu gen 3s any more ill have to get a light mount for bessie sue I gots to see what those black.magics are heading towards lol
it really turns night into day and is designed to be weapons mounted........ I go no where without it....
With that $15 flashlight. Ive a streamline scorpion as well and was easily 5 or 6 times as.bright. it lit the road up so well at 100 yards you could tell exactly what you were looking at. It really blew that scorpion out of the water
Can you put up a link as to where you found this?
9 bucks a piece...by Monster Hunter
Element KP flash light...4 triple A batteries that can be mounted on a shot gun or rifle...distance is unknown since I brush hunt but here at my house the beam stays consistent at fifty yards...Timber has seen these inexpensive lights I use...more bang for the buck if distance is not a factor...
Rear push button on and off switch that is not a problem on short barreled rifles or shotguns...I've had these lights for about three to four years without any problems with excellent battery life unless your grand children use it and leave it on for a couple of days...
Boogers screaming...this morning...by Monster Hunter
One of my contacts called me today...the little girl she keeps at times was walking from the neighbors house coming home...there's an open mowed area next to a field she walks so she isn't walking tree lines or in a wooded area...she told my contact she needed to go beat on the tree since she was screamed at three times walking home...
That's pretty cool Jim.
It needs to cool down some Bobby...by Monster Hunter
The drive is bad enough but the heat is a killer to spend the time needed not only this area but others as well...
I went to the Cemetary today up out of Jacksonville, to visit my Dad, and it was 106*. Man, I can do without some of these temps, it is just too danged hot partner! When it cools down, I am more than ready to jump on some monsters! My guess, as to why they are screaming out now, they are saying some of the things I was saying. Probably something like, #@&$ it's hot out here!
We've had two weeks of temps between 110-115... A man can't hardly function in that kind of heat. We've had 40+ 100 degree days this summer with a lot of summer left...worst I remember and had days that broke records.
110-115 degrees...by Monster Hunter
Look on the bright side Timber...every day that passes means we're that much closer to hopefully some cooler weather...
Not quite that hot but we REALLY NEED RAIN!
It's dryer than gun powder down here and just as flammable!
A new blog about an old film. I hope to make this an informative place to go to understand the Patterson film and view the very best imagery from it. M.K.
I can never see alot of the things you do since I don't have a sound card but words, I can handle that man
Notice the heel toe gait...by Monster Hunter
Am I seeing something not there are does she actually land on her heel area and push with her ball of the foot and toes?...the one academic I have in mind claims, thinks or believes these Monsters walk around stomping their feet...also believing there are only five toed Monsters with any less digits being misidentification or hoaxed...

What makes a simple blade of grass grow.
Water...n/tby Monster Hunter
I would say favorible conditions.
Are we talking Bermuda or st Augustine or Johnson
In the winter you can throw all the water at them
You want and they will still remain dormant!
It takes water and warm temps and fertile ground,
So if you are looking for one answer I would say,,

And the March continues...by Monster Hunter
Happy Birthday Barry...
I'm looking at several different spots and some are restricted to the number of people they can accommodate. I kinda need a rough estimate on how many are gonna be there and how many are bringing campers vs tents or if you have to have running water and power. Lots of small campgrounds and I've narrowed it down abit already in looking at past encouters in the area. Thanks and you may return to your regular scheduled programing. LOL
Don...any spot where we can camp will do...by Monster Hunter
15 to 30 people I would imagine plus a few guests...relative flat area near water (creek/lake) if possible...depending on what's available...if we have to pay a fee no big deal...if it has water/bathrooms you done more than good...
Now...when Don locates us an area, if he can, no complaining...before you bitxx remember the source...LOL
...that he'd pay for any of our expenses even if he didn't get to come?.
Time for your Spanish lesson Dew,,,by SAsquatcher
en tus suenos!
But Dew, you have ruined the word snivel for me! I shall forever associate it with post nasal drip for the snuffling part. snivelsniffsnivelsniffsnivelsniff.....
... that ain't what we normally say in Louisiana.
I did learn a new word for today. My english teacher, Mrs. Cochran would be proud of me. I would get a star by my name today. woohoo!
Sure Cindy!by SAsquatcher
You have special permission,,LOL!
From one "Sniveler" to another.
Jim and I will need a 'Handicap Access' campground with a cook and maid service..... It's the pits being a Senior...
Don's gonna tell us there's a fee when there really isn't, so's he can take the proceeds to purchase that light blue leisure suit he's been eyeballing down to the salvation army store. Long live the 70's Don Don! LOL
P.S. Count me in!
Mr Phelps I for one will pay good money to see DonDon in a 70's era light blue leisure suit. There will be plenty of camera's and cell phones there and I'll have it posted on FB within minutes..... What are friends for!!!
DonDon wouldn't need a pheromone chip to attract a monster. He would be odiferous enough all on his own.
Those come with the suit.
Does that count? Lol most places will have a fee. Maybe 10-20 bucks a night. Ive already called a few places so now.its scouting time to see which one has the closest n most active monster activity. Most people dont associate Mississippi with alot of monsters but weve had alot of reports over the last few years
...that's exactly what I need too is a sponsor. I'll be there early friday afternoon Lord willing. the only space I'll need is for a '93 Dodge Dakota. I'll have to head back Saturday for work Sunday, looking forward to seeing some of ya'll there. Some probably not. LOL
calm down that was only a test from the emergency broadcasting system. LMAO
Find DonDon,but running water and a bathroom would be most appreicative.If there is going to be a fee let us know.
Hey guys...by Monster Hunter
We're "suppose" to be rough and tough Monster Hunters that can withstand the elements making the best of what we have...BTW Don...how far is the nearest hotel?...
Okay...is everyone happy?...by Monster Hunter
other than Cindy?...
Will be Sniveling for some time but otherwise okay!
Ya'll are gonna be hearing about this for a while. Bring my hopes up with a weekend I can make it and then CRUSH them like a bug underfoot. How can you be SO EMOTIONALLY CRUEL!!!!??? snivelsnivelsnivelsniffsnivel
it's available right up until the 'Start Gate', and all I have to say is there better be lots of beautiful girls waiting with a wheel chair at the finish line with my beer and turkey leg or I will do some..... 'High Speed Sniveling'!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL Sorry to hear you will not be able to make it, but don't worry we'll get you in the woods soon.
If I can make it I'll come.
Mind if I bring my cameras?
Hey J Mike...we're going to be in MS and not ...by Monster Hunter
area 51...LOL...sure you can bring whatever you want including Edith...
I'll even let you photograph my better side................ LOL would be great to see you and Edith again.
That there is supposed to be a surprise visit from the ever elusive yet severely overworked BigfootHunter!

I'll have to look at a photo...by Monster Hunter
To recognize Bobby since it's been so long...
Can't wait to see all you guys
Speaking of UFO's, I had a friend that said her and her mom say some. Here was her response back to me when I asked her about it via email.
"I swear mom saw it too! and then we saw two more moving around. they made a big triangle. totally freaked us out." This was around the Jackson are just a couple nights ago
It's now looking like I won't be free to attend due to work and some other stuff. So I guess you'll need 20 less pounds of crappie......
Hate to hear that Lou...by Monster Hunter
Call in sick...
Naughty Dottie floating in a friend's pool. This is the pup we kept out of our litter. Going to be smaller than her parents, and a real joy to have around. Smart enough to get into a lot of trouble, too.
104 in San Antonio yesterday!by SAsquatcher
That pool looks DA## good!!!
...I got myself a Drafting degree in '90 so I can work out in this s**t today
building Coat Hooks for the school when they start the 10th.
What is wrong with that piture?. Jeez. LOL
It got to 109 here today, not counting the heat index. 111 yesterday. We had too much rain this spring, now it's so hot and dry even the oak trees are beginning to wilt.
I was out Mon in 102 heat building an agility course for this week's classes and got so hot I considered barfing. It is way too hot to do anything outside and people still show up at 7pm, when it is 100F, to run their dogs! Insanity! But I need to pay the bills, so I'm out there with them covered head to toe and sweating like a pig and yelling (instructing haha) at them. bleh Heat index in 108 today.
Please bear with me, I have had a whole host of computer issues, and I still do not have the recent reports posted for this month. Now for some crazy reason the program I was using to post my reports with, is no longer in my computer. What happened to it from four weeks ago beats the hell out of me???????? This is the last straw. Within the next few weeks, I will be making the necessary moves to get a new Apple computer and piss on these damned Windows systems. I have had too many issues with these things through the years, and constantly having to fight with them to keep them working right is just too much of a pain in the ***.
Please bear with me while I get through these computer issues and get these reports back in swing.
Give me a holler if,,,by SAsquatcher
You need some assistance in knocking them out and posting them up bro.
I'm here for ya!

So ya'll have a wonderful time in Ol' MS and see a monster for me, please!
On my calendar the 1st weekend is the 1st/2nd.
Second is the 8th/9th.
Third is the 15th/16th
Fourth is the 22nd/23rd.
Fifth is the 29th/20th.
And who is on First?
What's on second?
15th/16th is the actual 3rd weekend.
Tonight's Bigfoot Central show will feature another guest. Jason Valenti will be on to discuss "intervention theory", as to the origins of the Sasquatch. From ancient Sumeria to Bluff Creek this should be a wide ranging discussion. I hope you can listen in. M.K.
I plan on listening in...by Monster Hunter
Should be interesting...
about the Mesapatanians (sp.)who used great Apes as carriers when they explored the new World and then got loose and evolved for our southern Swampapes
Pretty good theory though and makes sense to me
So the theory goes like this???by SAsquatcher
We are expected to believe that a chimp or Gorilla or Orangutan evolved in about 3 to 5 thousand years to a giant mostly bipedal primate with feet similar to ours but bigger?
The only way that the species could get like that in so short a time is that the species that was brought over was already a Sasquatch-like creature.
Sorry but evolution doesn't work that fast, it requires Millions of years.
From what I have seen...by Monster Hunter
Some are still evolving...check out WalMart any time of the day or night...
MK, this is probably one of the best I've listened to, keep up all the good work......
You're not going to believe this...by Monster Hunter
Our electricity went off yesterday afternoon...while patiently waiting the service to be restored Jake and I finished up the beagle pen in 105 plus degree heat...yes of course Jake bitcxxx but he hung in like a trooper...electricity was restored sometime around 7 or so...I was so darn hot my CRS kicked in completely destroying all brain waves other than...damn I'm hot...I'll have to listen to the archive...I'll do better next month hopefully...

So we'll let it cool down and do the first day of October which is the 1st weekend...let me say this...I will be happier than a pig in slop if you all can make it...if not...I'm going to MS and camp by myself...we have a few members looking for a camping area that will be easy to find but desolate enough for us to scout around in a bit...
Remember...1st weekend of October...the first day of October...October 1 is on a Saturday...hope to see all of you there...
I put my Better Half on a plane on Thursday 9-29 so I will be batching it, only need the small tent and freeze dried food that way, unless DonDon takes pity on me and cooks me one of his fish dinners...... LOL I will be there Friday afternoon late so the monsters better take a vacation!!!!!
Villa Rica, GA
I nominate Don to have a fish fry with some of that Crappie he's been hording back... Do I have a second?
I agree Michael...by Monster Hunter
My favorite fish when properly fried...
...I mean I third & fourth that vote.
I'm usually off thursday & Friday. Thursday is Church night. I can head that way Friday Morning.
Hope to see some of ya'll I ain't got to see in a while. I miss our fires alot.
I love to hear the stories and exchange notes and just relax and get away with friends that I haven't seen in a while!
Bobby's brisket ain't half bad either!!!!
I don't know though, in Mississippi we might have to throw a couple of pork shoulders in the mix. : )
This is a get together...by Monster Hunter
not our BBQ...if you want to eat bring your food or steal from your friends...
Okie Dokie!by SAsquatcher
But I still want Don to bring the deep fryer out and I may throw a shoulder on the grill as well.
It may not be a barbecue but I LOVE to cook while camping,,eat too,,LOL.
I'll second!by SAsquatcher
I love Crappie filets!
Cook em up Don!
But I'll have to have a decent head count before so I know how many bags of filets to take out the freezer. I'm doing some scout work this weekend so we can set a place as soon as we can. Want to pick a smaller state parks or camp grounds that's isolated abit. BTW, you guys don't like jalapeno hushpuppies do ya?
Take out a bag for me Don...by Monster Hunter
I'm coming...Jake may want to make the trip...I'll ask him if he wants to come...but one "large bag" should feed us both...LOL...large bag...
we should have a pretty good head count by the middle or end of September...
I usually put about 8 to 9 filets in a bag and that feeds us and some left overs. Think I got around 25 bags in the freezer and I haven't been in 3 or 4 weeks
Friday...by Monster Hunter
That's when I'm coming...take care of my dogs and head that way...
If you guys are going to move the get together to October,could you make it for the 8th?I'll have traveling money by then.So please consider the 8th,please!!!
I have prior plans that weekend so I can't go. I guess somebody else will have to initiate all the conversation. Have fun!
I'm a little gun shy here.by SAsquatcher
I'll just see when and where they decide to have it and see if I can show up.
I don't want my suggestions to be taken as whineing or "Sniveling" so I will just go with the flow.
I know that you cannot please everybody so just set a time, date and place and I'll do my darndest to get there!
Also, I just get to missing hanging out with you guys is why I really hate missing these functions,,,that and the monster action!

Looks as if we need to vote on a date...by Monster Hunter
I can go anytime including right now up into the first week of November...going to Hawaii to my oldest son's wedding...
But what really pixxes me off for us to change the date and then the one's who wanted the date changed didn't show...
That's why,,,by SAsquatcher
I am just waiting to see what date you guys set.
I don't want to pi$$ anybody off, just want to have a good time and see old friends and maybe make some new ones : )!
I too am flexible since I talked with work and told them that the date was up in the air, they just like having a little advance notice.
Most of us aren't retirees or particularly wealthy so we have to budget both time and gas money.
It SUX to have to work for a living,,LOL!

Ain't that the truth Bear...you talk way to much...LOLby Monster Hunter
If I didn't see you I wouldn't know you were even there...give me a date you can come and maybe we can finally figure out when "most" of us can show up...
Any other date and I'm good.
Not sure yet Cindy...by Monster Hunter
Thinking maybe 50 to 100 miles north or south of I-20...
Why not put up a poll for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd week of October and just see which one gets the most votes but allow folks to vote for any or all of them and not just one. I can do all 3 but the 2nd week would be the best for me since I got a grand daughter due late in October.
That pretty well,,,by SAsquatcher
Has about 2/3 of the state covered,,lol!
I can do that weekend and I voted above.......

That Twain guy...by Monster Hunter
Knew what he was talking about...
Bigfoot vs Yowieby SAsquatcher
This is a question more pointed toward Dean Harrison
Of the AYR .
Do the Yowies do a lot of the same things that
Bigfoot does ,,, such as bionic bird whistles and
tree knocking etc,,.
Inquiring minds want to know!
This September...by Monster Hunter
Probably in Misissippi somewhere...I do believe Don has an area we can get together...
...So I can get to pickin' up beer cans for the gas money.
I think September is next month. LOL
Just spoke with Bobby...by Monster Hunter
The GCBRO will have a get together in MS. this September...this will not be our BBQ...as soon as all arrangements have been made, hopefully soon, we'll announce times and dates...start making plans to attend if possible...I'm thinking middle to the end of September...hopefully it will be much cooler by then...
A long way for me and really short notice!
That is a lot closer than mississippi for a lot of us!
Folks no matter where get together(s) are you have to remember our membership is spread through out the South from the east coast to west TX or farther and somebody will have a long drive to attend any outing so don't snivel if its not where you want it..... until MC can recover it is probably better to move on to somewhere else for awhile.... Personally I have driven many miles for years and am tired of hearing people snivel if locations or times aren't within what they want...... If you can't make it there will always be next year, IMO we can't please or accommodate everyone all the time but try and please the majority of our members and or guests.
Point taken.by SAsquatcher
I felt that the word "Snivel" was a little harsh, but okay!
Good point though and I agree.

I've closed MC...by Monster Hunter
We haven't allowed anyone in there in a couple of years...especially a group...we're at the point where we need to go east to give some of our members some driving relief...besides...I like MS...we get quite a few reports from MS and I want to invite these folks to our gathering for a sit down fact to face...
If you can't make it then make the next one...I missed one in OK and had plans for Jake and I to attend...things came up and I couldn't make it...sometimes...sxxx just happens...
And MC does need a break.
Let me know what ya think
Well I plan on being there this year.For the last couple of years something always came up,or money was tight.I've waiting this long to meet you guys,and I'm not going to miss this year(even if I have to walk).
I've got a friend that was a member of GCBRO ,that couldn't pay the membership fee this year.And I'm wanting to know if it's alright with you guys if he came to the get together in September?
Bring him along Gary...by Monster Hunter
It's no big deal...
Do Monsters see and pay any attention to your Game Cameras?...by Monster Hunter
I've put this up before but it is important to understand how important it is to hide your cameras...this camera was placed off of a trail that leads towards the trailer I was putting fried chicken on...
Coming from behind it was hidden pretty well but as I've mentioned...there are trees everywhere down there but few good trees to hang and hide cameras...apparently the Monsters saw this camera and leaned a pine limb up against it...there were not any pictures of anything on this camera though it hung for two weeks...
The trail it was overlooking appeared not to be used at all though I know these Monsters have used this trail on a fairly regular basis...Josh and I moved this camera several weeks back but the trail still looked as if hadn't been used...
I mean they make them camo colored why not make one with a wood grain?
Some are to a point Nellie...by Monster Hunter
But the UV kills the design unless painted flat black...they make smaller game cams but you still have to conceal them...easier said than done...
I move my cameras around after a couple of weeks since I think the Monsters spot them avoiding them like they're poison...besides...I've thought for years they watched me put them out...example...I went in to change batteries...had a few frames left so I walked out to my jeep where Sadea was sitting and took a few pictures of her...there were several Monsters back in the tree line watching me in the picture...I didn't see them...sent the picture to Timber and he spotted them right away...man has some good eyes...
More than several times I've set out cameras and would hear movement around me in the brush...
Years back I would put a camera at one of my feeders...get a few pictures of coon and sometimes a deer...leave the camera for a few weeks...move it to another food plot and something would cut the feeder down...this happened for years...
Paint them flat black, so no UV leakage, and then cut holes in the pertinent places? I guess it wouldn't help if they were watching you hang it up, though.
Nice...by Monster Hunter
Kill the UV and your set to go...I also saw where you can buy artificial trees...
|This message has been edited by tiny from IP address 220.127.116.11 on Aug 2, 2011 11:08 AM|
...What if you put it inside of a tree? I know you're thinkin' "Here he goes again"
Cut the bark off of a section of your Tree leavin a litle meat on it, then, Hollow out a spot inside just big enough for the camera. Put your camera in it, Toenail your bark piece back over the camera and cut a whole out in it just big enough for your lense to stick out of. Wait a month or so for the monsters to get over all the racket, and take some pictures. It'd be the ultimate camo, All you would see would be a kerf in it where you cut the bark , and a small hole for the lense when you got done. I may have to try that, Jim
If it works tell everybody I thought of it. If It don't tell 'em my Wife did. LOL
Sounds like a lot of work Dew...by Monster Hunter
Can I use a log instead?...
...As long as it's a log they're used to seeing on the Trail. I remember a few years ago you telling me about the foil wrapper off a pack of smokes making them quit a trail. We WOULD have to be careful not to disturb anything too much.
What if we did it on a dark night? They would'nt be able to tell what we was doing, only that we were doin' something. Dang Jim, you got the wheels turning in my head now. Sounds like a Hog eatin' lockwashers, too. LOL
They don't miss much Dew...by Monster Hunter
A thumb tack and a small piece of tin foil would make them change trails...
How about building a wooden container...large enough for the camera system but slim lined enough to place on a tree using the same kind of bark glued to the wooden box...use sheet rock screws to fasten to the tree since they're already a flat black...newer camera batteries will last for months depending on pictures taken so the camera could be left for long periods of time at a food plot or trails without checking it...the box would look like a knot on the tree...
...Or we could be defeating our own purpose. My Question is would that "KNOT" make them move? In my opinion, The monsters at MC may see it and cut a new trail to Denver. On the other hand, your new monsters might not give a hoot in hell what that strange knot is on that tree. They may not pay any attention to it. I hate variables. Hell, all you can do is give it a try.
Advantages of a box would be:
1. Any scent left behind would be high, or at least, not right on the ground.
2. Relatively quick and painless installation. 8 ft ladder and a screwgun & you're
done. Hey, that's kinda catchy.
3. You can pre-fab the whole thing right there at the house.
1. Something "NEW" hanging off the Tree
2. Making the new bark match the old bark, If they're that smart. (Doubtful)
Advantages of a Log:
1. It's already in place. They're used to seeing it. ( If we could locate a
trail with an old dead Pine Log already laying close to it that would be
sweet. A broken Log would be even better
2. If the Log was broken, the lense hole is all you would see.
Just take one end of it, cut out a cavity for the camera to sit in. Lay it
back on the ground.
1. Any scent left behind would be ankle high to a monster.
I'll be off in a minute, and spend the rest of the night, thinkin' about how to hide a camera. I Love my Life. LMAO
MC has been logged about ten to twelve years back...by Monster Hunter
there aren't any large logs laying around that I know of that's near a trail...plenty of pine trees of various sizes...matching the bark of a pine should be simple enough...strip bark off of one and glue it to the box...
How about a birdhouse with nothing in it and then later add a camera?
Bird house...by Monster Hunter
I was planning on putting one of my video cameras in a bird house as soon as it cools down some...made the box sometime back but needed a better varifocal camera...hide the wire inside the pipe...no big deal...digging a trench in this heat to hide the wire...that's a big deal...ground is like concrete...
they put a ripped up post oak and wrapped it up in front of the tree trunk, stuffing the hole up.
I think they can smell the human scent on them as well. I've taken rubbing alcohol and cleaned not only the camera but also the batteries that I put in them. Then once in the field, I've used rubber gloves handling them. Another thing I've done is using rubber gloves, rub mud on them or taken Pine needles and rub them alot to get the sap out of the needles, then onto the camera to get the human scent off them. Once I do that. I try and hide them with leaves or small branches, leaving only the face of the camera exposed
You are one sneaky game camera hanging devil Don...by Monster Hunter
I hang mine...sweat and all...after a few hours the scent is gone...by the time I carry everything I need to hang them I have no room for scent killer...need to start wearing my back pack I guess...
BTW, right now that back pack is a killer bud. It's abit heavy with 2 trail cams, scent stuff, 3 or 4 bottles of water and a 357 in in though. LOL
Alabama...Monster report...by Monster Hunter
Friday night at a restaurant a young lady told me the following...
When young they lived close to the Georgia border...house set below a mountainous region with the back yard small that connected to this mountain...
Mother is doing dishes...looks out the window with a Monster looking back at her...she does a blood curling scream with the Monster retreating to the mountain...She said this critter was approximately 5 to 5 1/2 ft. tall...
Front porch screened in area...sister hears a noise thinking it was her dad coming in...Went to greet her dad seeing a Monster running away...this Monster had entered the screened in porch area throwing a welcome mat outside...
This lady said that she and her sisters were afraid to be outside thinking something was always watching them...
That has to be a scary way to grow up...
what part of Alabama?
I think Newsome...by Monster Hunter
Is that even a city in Alabama?...She mentioned north of Gadsden...
and is just on the Eastern edge of what's know as the AL Triangle known for many reports and lots of activity.
Is Newsome a town Bob?...by Monster Hunter
Are do I need a darn hearing aid to?...
I was referring to Gadsden AL, I've never heard of Newsome and can't find it on a map..... I have an appointment with the VA this month for a hearing aid... maybe you should call and make one..... LOL Hopefully they can fix me up so I don't have to wear Bionic Ears every time I'm in the woods so critters don't walk up and tap me on the shoulders..... Dam getting old is the pits.
I think you're right...by Monster Hunter
Getting older beats the alternative though Bob...
I always swore that MH but there are times these days when I have my doubts about getting older beating the alternative.
Hang in there Florida Redneck...by Monster Hunter
You need to collect all the social security you invested...that's exactly what keeps me and Grumpy going...money...LOL...
that area has had some activity since it is the lower foothills of the Appalachians and it borders several Georgia counties with activity. Not to bring up a sore subject but the great Biscardi "found a dead one" hoax area is on North Georgia and despite the hoax it has had some activity. North Georgia is pretty durned remote! There are alos some very remote areas of NE Alabama.
We get some pretty good reports from that area hogue34...by Monster Hunter
If I had the time and money to travel and stay for a month or two I believe I would visit this area...
where i am now I am about 2 hours from general area. When I lived in Huntsville I was under an hour from Ne areas and couple hours from North GA area.
Two hour trip to camp the weekend is not bad...by Monster Hunter
A two hour drive one way and a turn around is a pain in the butt...especially when out in this heat for more than several hours...of course the air conditioned vehicle helps the trip back...
I'd do a two hour drive for a good report...might even do four if they reported seeing a Monster...

Monster toting a Monster...by Monster Hunter
Game camera picture I cropped...notice the shape of the leg of the Monster carrying a Monster...looks human...notice the smaller leg dangling from the Monster being carried...from what appears to be the knee down...
From looking at a few of the pictures I do think inbreeding is showing in this bunch...three toes...four toes and this one with a bad leg...one picture of a large three toed Monster that looks like his shopping cart ain't full...
BTW...though we have seen many impressions we have yet to see a no doubt five toed track...impressions appear that one or two of the males are five toed but I am unsure...
Nice piture,where did you have the game camera at?You don't happen to have a little bit bigger blow up of it?Or any more pictures?
The picture was taken south of me...by Monster Hunter
and yes I do have a larger picture that hasn't been cropped...in this picture there are 7 to 8 more Monsters...when I get through investigating the area I'll release what I have...
There are more pictures as well...
Yes I do know when saved and magnified it pixelates...I might have done that on purpose Gary...
I didn't mean to sound critical of the piture,i'm sorry.I was just wondering if you had a larger size piture.I still think you are a lucky man for getting that picture.All I've been able too get is pictures of tree and limb formations.What kind of digital game camera do you got(the kind with a visible flash,or non-visible flash)?
Neither did I...by Monster Hunter
I use Moultrie IR cameras...which are not completely IR...I can see a small red lite when activated...
coming back down this way? I might be able to come down while you are here.
I plan on coming back...by Monster Hunter
A week from this coming Tuesday if possible...come by for a visit...you know where I'll be...I usually get there around 11:30 AM...takes me a while to get going anymore...
Thank you for the Photo. Clearly see what is in it.
Is it me, or does others feel they should just be left alone?
Not being Anti-Kill, or Pro-Kill. My feeling, after
viewing this photo; leaves me thinking.
Hell, if we here, and other places know they exist.
Then way hassle them.
They are probaly more "Humans" than use.?
Okay, off my soap box.
It does make a person think...by Monster Hunter
do we harvest one for discovery or attempt to monitor them someway...
My opinion,,,by SAsquatcher
Guess getting soft in my old age. When I view that
photo; I get the feeling that one is helping the other.
For some reason kinda chokes me up. lol, getting teary-eyed
over a monster. Can you believe that. Up
till viewing the photo, I was Pro-Kill for just one. To
prove existence. Now, I dunno.
After seeing the pictures...by Monster Hunter
I didn't realize there were that many in a group, clan or family...look at the legs of the one carrying one...looks identical to human legs...
if there is such a creature and they are "aware", you probably wouldn't want to harm one. If it was an ape like animal it would still be too bad to capture or kill one but I suppose we'd want to for scientific reasons and/or any kind or money we could make off a corpse, etc. There would probably be hell to pay from the public though if they knew who you are.
Just knowing they are out there would be kinda neat for a guy like me who lives very close to vast wilderness and who's out there quite a bit. Never seen anything here though or met anywond who has.
I know for fact there are Monsters...by Monster Hunter
I have seen them...have pictures of them...and the one's I have seen are not in a wilderness setting...fairly close to homes...much closer than thought...
The lady walked out in her back yard taking pictures of Monsters...stood on her back porch and took pictures...the pictures I have on my game camera are within a couple of hundred yards of her home and another home...this is considered a rural area and not a wilderness....
Someone did bag a monster,who would you take the body too?Espeically some one that would do the right thing,and not pull a Georgia boys incident.
I know who I would take it to...by Monster Hunter
If you're hunting for harvest a person needs to have some reputable scientist to validate the specimen...take samples for DNA and not call the cops on you...LOL...BTW...if you hunt for harvest make sure and put some money back for jail bail...guaranteed someone is going to jail...
You got a whole group on a game cam???? That is very exciting! Wow wow wow
Are we sure one is "carrying" .... They wouldn't be -- um -- you know ..
No...one is carrying another...by Monster Hunter
In the complete picture there are several taller males and a youngster following behind the male to the right of the female toting the Monster...second picture of three it appears she puts it down stooping over it...same in the third photo...in this picture there's another one standing behind a small pine looking at the camera to the right...three to the left but nearer the camera...one in the thicket a distance from the camera...I can see head and shoulders...large group of Monsters and they're not located in a wilderness area...rural but not a wilderness by any means...
I named this one "Big Nose Kate"...by Monster Hunter
She is closer to the camera then the female carrying one but to the right...day time picture...late afternoon...(same photo) butt ugly though...
Maybe a little better picture of...by Monster Hunter
Big Nose Kate...
I don;t think it's carrying another one. I think it's just leaned over to the side and just in front of the one walking away. Heads to big on the one leaning for their not to be part of it's body sticking out the other of the one walking away
On the way out on June 25th we were following a deer trail just before we climbed the hill out. I noticed a small tree limb broken that was lying over the deer trail that was not broken on the way in. The leaves had not even wilted on the branch. We walked past it and I told my two sons that I thought I should get a picture of it. I turned back and took the shot. I did not notice anything but the broken limb. There is a shadow anomaly in the back. This was taken with my smart phone.
Hard to tell exactly what you have...by Monster Hunter
But it does look kind of Monstery...
I kind of looks like there are actually two creatures in this pic, second just a face at bottom of first larger one..... or just shadows who knows..... but IMO body lines are to crisp and straight for shadows.
I think the discoloration is a breast. I also think the arm is coming across the body. It might be holding something.
i think i see a baby in the middle ,right to the left of her nose looks like a small head. it is really hard to tell.just my opion.
One in front and one clinging to the back. There is a baby hand on top of the mother's head. The extension on the left of the mother's face and above the shoulder is part of the one on the back and what looks like a deltoid on the right side of the picture is part of the body of the one clinging to the back also I believe.
On the front side the babies arm is raised up obstructing the mother's mouth but you can see the mother's lips to the right of the face.
This thing was scary close to me and I did not see it... I believe about 25 feet in the picture but we had to have walked right past it.
like that, it's important to inspect the actual break. Look for an old wound, rot or damage of some kind that could cause the limb to finally give up the ghost. If there's no sign of damage at all and it's a healthy branch, well you know there was a physical force of some kind. Taking a photo is one thing but investigating the possible cause is important as well.
Wow, Grumpy's enhancement looks pretty good...even for a skeptical b*st*rd like me! Wonder if you took another photo under the same conditions from the same spot if the "shadow" would still be there?
There are some light anomalies in the picture that are a little disorienting. I outlined what I see in the picture. Is this what everyone else sees? You might have to magnify to see my outline
Re: Hard to look atby Monster Hunter
That's what I see...
If it ain't Monster...by Monster Hunter
The lady has a four toed bandit knocking on the side of her home...these were next to her porch...there was another right foot but dogs stepped in the track...the lady saw these tracks thinking it could have been the little girl that stays with her but said the girl didn't have any mud on her feet...little girl came back from a neighbors...I counted five toes on both feet...
Three pictures on both game cameras...pretty good pictures of Josh and me...
we moved one of the video cameras to a large oak that overlooks the area where she hears the knocks and where the little girl saw a Monster crouched down looking through the window...
Both contacts reported screams that woke them up in the middle of the night plus the beating on one of the homes...it's unfortunate it's a long drive or I would spend more time there...2 hour drive one way and it is hot and humid...
Removed the game cameras with plans on setting them up at MC for a few weeks...had a bit of rain and saw a few impressions on a lane I know Monsters have traveled before...
I know this is a muddy surface but you can vaguely see the outline of the foot which does appear to be rather wide with a narrow heel...kind of looks like a bear track without the claw marks...
is that the four toes almost defies common biological patterns for mammals...such as ten toes..ten fingers.. so on. It would almost be accepted for the scientific community to quickly right this evidence off and most of them would. Except nature is an amazing force and mutations are common place on every level of the biological world. So the thought of four toed creatures is not something out of the ordinary. One picture comes to mind for me and it deals with the famous crabman that used to work in the Barnum Bailey circus....his hands were fused into crab like appendages...and his daughters were born with the exact same mutation. Hell, one of them married Jim Lampley of ABC sports...
It is the first good...by Monster Hunter
clear no doubt four toed track I've seen...I've seen three and five many times and like your thinking...bipeds should all have five toes...first tracks I saw and cast were three toed...walked around those tracks for half an hour thinking...What the hexx made these tracks...IMO this is kind of funny...there are those in this field of study that actually think they have some idea of what these Monsters are...make their videos, pass their bullsxxx along as being on the edge of discovery...I've got news for you boys...you ain't even close...
I know this from experience...the longer you stay in areas of activity the more you understand these are some strange critters...
had the young girl put her track beside the one you found as a comparison? I wonder also if she's brought some friends over?
The girls foot...by Monster Hunter
was much narrower and had an arch...she did have five toes on each foot...the lady saw the track the morning I went down and there wasn't any company that day...the little girl was next door when I got there coming home an hour or so after I took the pictures...
This lady has walked out amongst these critters taking pictures T...a lot braver than most men I know...and yes...I do have the pictures...
The lady took a picture...by Monster Hunter
of a bunch of these Monsters standing/sitting at one of her out buildings...the big one sitting flat of his arse has his foot straight up...three toes only...
Meldrum's nightmare...a Monster with only three than a Monster with four...
One organization sent in a three toed track to Meldrum...of course he mumbled something calling it misidentification or hoax...he is so wrong that he'll never be right...
BTW travellor...it's been years and I nearly forgot...CRS...by Monster Hunter
I met Jim Lampley at a convention in Nashville,TN...seemed like a good man...
No slight to him...just giving a little info to anyone who needed a lead to research physical anomalies...Jim Lampley is a good man
looks to be 4" wide so not a real huge monster but still with it AT their house like that. Kinda spooky
If it wasn't so blasted dry and hot down here...by Monster Hunter
I do think we would find many tracks and good impressions...BTW...while out and about we did hear a few Monster calls...not loud but fairly close by...reckon they were letting the others know we were in the woods...
This bunch of Monsters are nothing like the aggressive bunch at MC...these seem to be more laid back...Monsters are sneaky little devils...they know when the ladies are home by themselves and make their visits accordingly...In my other now defunct lap top I have pictures of a larger Monster track at the ladies bedside window...not full grown but larger than the above...
OH RICKKKKK, Time to get the dress, high heels, wig and perfume out Bro. He can get a huge handbag and put all the recording devices in it to take inside so the monsters won't see him. Maybe even get some of that Special Pee that I brought to the last hunt and spritz it on him as well. Sure he could attract those monsters since the ones at MC love him so much.
To hot Don...by Monster Hunter
His makeup would run...LOL...Poor little buddy...we'll never get him to do that again...But I do admit...the man can get a Monster close by or on you...he's the only one I know that has ever done that...Rick is no doubt the "Monster Man"...
He should change his handle to "Monster Man"...very fitting alias...
Rick's new handle????
I say we take a vote or create a poll..............

Whatever it takes...by Monster Hunter
I'd dress up in drag if the Monsters would follow me...bad knees and all...I ain't scared and darn sure wouldn't care what anyone said...I am the ultimate team player...
Even a more scarey thought than the Monsters,,LOL>
Whatever it takes Rick...by Monster Hunter
and I do mean...whatever it takes...
before. The offer still stands. If you think using a female as bait would work, I'm your bizatch. I'll drive out there and meet you at your convenience, just give me a day's notice so I can arrange it with work. Can't go during the Nat Spec, but otherwise you just let me know. I haven't been around in awhile because I have been dealing with pups, but I'm still here and interested. Whatever it takes.

Ya'll would be slapping your hands to your face and screaming "Oh my eyes!" if I wore it. Gravity and cellulite have definitely done their damage.
It works. BWAAA HAHA You are right though about ANYTHING IT TAKES. I got my wife to pee in a pint jar the week of her monthly visitor so you know I'm team player if I hand my wife and jar and she pees in it. LOL
Tell Nessa I said ,,,by SAsquatcher
That is just wayyyyyyyy too much info there Don,, hehe!
Talk about studdering and fumbling around before I got the the point of asking her to do it. LOL. We're going somewhere this coming weekend, just not sure yet. Gonna scope out a couple places for this fall and maybe a get together. I HAD planned on it this past weekend and had a couple of buds going but my saturday plans fell through when Nessa reminded me it was another friends 50th BDay. This comingf Saturday, I'm going somewhere. Just ain't sure YET
Yeah RIGHT,,LOL,,,by SAsquatcher
I can just see myself asking YOUR wife if she would pee in a cup for me but only if Aunt FLO is in town,,,LOL!
Sorry bud,,thats your department!
But the hard drive is still good...by Monster Hunter
My old broken screen lap top I've been babying around for a year or so finally gave up the ghost...I removed the hard drive which is still in good shape and decided I would disassemble to have a look see...quite few screws and a large screw driver for prying I discovered why it's cheaper to buy one than have it repaired...
If anyone is interested in a Toshiba lap top torn to pieces let me know...minus some screws...sorry...the hard drive remains here with me...thousands of pictures and believe it or not...some, people haven't seen...
Box it up and send it on!by SAsquatcher
I'm pretty good at fixing things and I have a hard drive I can slap in it.
Will email you my addy and you can let me know the terms.
I'll gather the laptop pieces...by Monster Hunter
take a picture and then have you decide if you really want it...when I mentioned I took it apart...that's exactly what I did...took it apart...screen is cracked, screws are missing along with other possible items of interest...I do know how to replace the key board and screen but the parts needed outweigh the price of a new one...
We have three identical Toshiba lap tops...two puked with one I'm using now that had so much junk on it its taken me a week to get it up and running...
Mine would get hot and cut off...cleaned it thoroughly with compressed air but still after a few minutes it would shut down plus the screen was cracked...
The other, my sons, hard drive bit the bullet plus other issues...
My wife's, the one I am now using, was and still has some problems but I do have it operational for now...I can use my hard drive in this computer without a problem...I just imagine I'll be buying a new lap top in the near future...
Laptop...by Monster Hunter
It is all to pieces and as far as I'm concerned a piece of junk...
Try a laptop cooling station, it has 3 fans and your laptop sits on top of it and it plugs into a USB port.
That would save you a bunch of money in the long run!
Yeah I know...by Monster Hunter
I have several but still the computer would shut down...
Well our goverment needs to quite giving money to other countries,and pay our debt off with that money.And don't give SS benifits to illeagal imergrants that haven't put into the system.Thats just my opion.
Our government needs to quit being our government...by Monster Hunter
We need a fresh start...
It is no longer " of, for, or by, the people" and needs a
We restart all over with a fresh new government??
Well...I guess we could but you do know...by Monster Hunter
they have bigger guns and a bunch of them...
You/me/us can but we do it at the ballot box...get involved...

Can you all say "Vote Independent"?
As Rick mentioned below, the Space Shuttle Program has come to an end...A very expensive budget cut to help the GOV try to stay in the back anually..(Outside of that we are red for the next 20 years.)
My wife is Chinesse, so I am not discounting them on race, but lets face it...every piece of $hit product that comes from that country is keeping an American worker in unemployment.
STOP BUYING "MADE IN CHINA" products.
Ya pay a little more but the damn thing will last forever!!!
MADE IN THE USA........Need to see more of that.
Crappy products...by Monster Hunter
People look at price before they examine a product...China makes crappy junk as do most of the products brought into our country from 3rd world countries...save a few dollars and I guarantee 9 times out of 10 you'll get a piece of junk...
If it ain't made by Americans in the USA I ain't interested...if you want to support your country quit buying foriegn made or grown products...
BTW and another problem we have…by
our welfare system is horrible and completely out of control..drug test everyone that receives food stamps or government assistance...put some of these lazy no goods to work picking up trash, janitors at public facilities, sweeping city sidewalks...
I do understand there are those who have worked and deserve assistance but if youre standing in a food stamp line I want to see some ribs shining not 200 pounds of fat

...You GO Jim.
It's funny...the color of your skin was made to NOT be a factor...now it is a requirement.
Dr King must be rolling over in his grave...He wanted equal rights and instead we gave them favortisism.
and now it's expected....Pretty funny when you have a nation of blacks wanting the limit held on Mexicans...lol
Entire generations have been taught how to use and work the food stamp and welfare system to get max benefits..... and never work a day in their lives. IMHO the only way to fix a system this abused is to completely eliminate it..... Also while I'm complaining "WHY" is our government still paying contractors who funnel money to the Taliban, this has been all over the news for days and as of the last news report our tax dollars are still going to finance the bad guys!!!!!!
Some need and deserve assistance ...by Monster Hunter
Most don't...instead of completely eliminating begin drug testing...if you have alcohol or any non-prescription drug in your system...no support...I know older folks who worked all of their lives that live on social security...make a few dollars to many for food stamps but not enough to buy needed medication...
Jim, IMHO this will only eliminate 25% of the abusers, the rest have found a way to live comfortably without working........ I understand there are those who do need this service and possibly a time limit needs to be established and then a review to re-qualify is needed. I know for fact that as soon as you go on medicare they cut your Social Security saying they need it to pay your medical...... I had better coverage before going on Medicare which doesn't cover anything older folks need, and has a large deductible before paying anything.

I do understand Bob...by Monster Hunter
Make a little too much money and they'll deduct the overage from your social security...rotten bastaxxx...
I have an older friend who made some money from an oil lease...social security docked him x number of dollars a month for reimbursement...unbelievable...the man and his wife have worked hard paying into their social security...that's their money they invested involuntarily but with a promise of being repaid for their investment...
You guys are gonna get or are getting Social Security checks? NOT ME! (And a big thank you and a kick in the pants goes to Tom DeLay) I am not eligible for SS checks because I'm a Texas retired teacher. Lucky me! Having that $800 extra would really have helped to pay our bills will Silver Fox is engaged in a--thus far--fruitless search for a job.
But am I bitter...Nah, and if I wouldn't have been penalized, I WOULD NOT have signed up for Medicare, either. I don't want anything FROM the government except respect, freedom and limited "rule" but they (the government) doesn't seem to be hearing ANY of what the people say these days. So, SOP continues.
Ruby who don't get SS!
for anyone receiving Government benefits. I like the idea but don;t think it'll ever get passed
also supports SLAVE labor.
I worked for Mattel Toys for 27 years attaining the position of Director with 62 direct reports.
"Made in China" caused my department to be pruned down to 12 when I was laid off as part of a 1000 employee reduction due to the fact our duties were sent to China.
Due to my position at Mattel, I was given plant tours at the facilities where Hot Wheels and Barbies are manufactured.
It is shocking to see the deplorable working conditions these poor folks are subjected to.
They are indeed present day slaves!
As a country we are also to blame. Corporate fat cats feed off of OUR hunger for cheaper and cheaper crap sold at WalMart.
We have gone from a manufacturing country to a disposable retail country, and we are now suffering for our horrible policies.
It would be nice if you could just buy American made products, but more and more you don't have a choice. There is not much at all you can buy that's made in this country anymore. From hardware to plywood and clothes and even steel goods all come from somewhere else. I don't think you can find a made in USA air conditioner or any appliance anymore. Sad but true.......I used to think it was just a conspiracy "theory" when I read about the planned deindustrialasion of America but we are watching this unfold now. Looks more like a fact now. I read somewhere that in the last 10 yrs. there's been over 40,000 factorys close up shop in the US. Not good..... they probably won't be back........
with the governmental regulations suppressing American manufacturing and increased taxes I doubt we'll ever see competitive American made products produced. We buy "American" made whenever we can find them and believe me, it is VERY hard to find that label. But there are some American made products still on store shelves.
I believe (you're free to think me crazy) we've allowed the balance of trade and the economy to be depressed/destroyed as a part of the shadow government's plan to destroy the sovereignty of our country (and others as well) and usher in a perceived NEED for a global economy and a one world leader to SAVE us from destruction. This is at the heart of what's NOT going on right now to fix the debt ceiling fiasco. Research these subjects, if you don't believe me...and also read the bible. This economic meltdown was predicted over two thousand or more years ago. The bible may not use the actual words, economic meltdown, but the event is accurately described.
wouldn't it be better to STOP importing products from China? That's an idea that might work better. Their products have in the past made babies sick (poisoned formula-remember?) and have killed our pets (poisoned pet food--remember?) so stopping the trade that hurts us and benefits them would seem a better solution. BUT I have grave doubts that the no-trade policy solution would occur to any politician other than Donald Trump.
This looks like it should be a good one.by SAsquatcher

I grew up with the whole "Planet of the Apes" movies and loved them as a kid. This one seems to be on the political adult side with that old message of not getting bigger than your britches.
Looks to be a good one, especially with today's CG ablities.
I've always loved the Planet of the apes movies
