“Finding Bigfoot” – Last Night

Finding_Bigfoot

Last night’s episode of “Finding Bigfoot” was indeed that one that Desirée Lee, and I attended the town hall meeting in Chiloquin, Oregon. We weren’t on-screen very much, but could be seen in several of the town hall meeting scenes scattered throughout the episode. Seeing us on TV like that was strange for me, to say the least! How many of you watched the episode, and saw us?

Anyone who missed it last night, but would like to see it, the title of the episode is “Squatching On Sacred Ground”. Watch your TV listings for Animal Planet for  a rerun of it.

Turns out that last night’s episode of “Finding Bigfoot” wasn’t the one that Desirée Lee and I ought to be in. The next time we’re aware of an episode possibly being the one, I’ll make it known here.

“Finding Bigfoot” – Oregon

Matt_Moneymaker

For those of you who have been paying attention, you know that a few months ago my wife (Desirée Lee) and I were fortunate enough to be able to attend the town hall meeting for an episode of the hit Animal Planet television program “Finding Bigfoot“. That took place up in Chiloquin, Oregon.

When that episode airs, we’re pretty much guaranteed to be on-screen, given where we were sitting in the audience, and where the crew had people standing when they told their sightings stories. Most of the speakers were either directly beside, or directly behind us. At that filming, we were told that, tentatively, the episode would air in March. It looks as if this coming weekend’s episode is from Oregon. So, it might be “our” episode. As yet, we don’t know. But, I wanted to let you all have the heads-up – just in case!

Unknown Air Date

People keep asking when the episode of “Finding Bigfoot” that we attended filming for last week will air. As I explained in this post, we don’t know that at this time. From what we were told at the filming, that episode could tentatively air sometime this coming March. It’s up to Animal Planet, though. We’ll announce the actual air date for the episode when we know it.

I talked in a post last week about the upcoming town hall meeting in Chiloquin, Oregon for the hit Animal Planet TV show “Finding Bigfoot”. That’s about 45 miles or so from us here where we live in northern California. We’re now under a severe weather advisory for this weekend – heavy winds, rain, and snow. Hopefully we can still make it up to Chiloguin for that meeting on Monday! Please keep watching for updates.

Town Hall Meeting

Finding_Bigfoot

Yesterday, Desirée Lee found out that the cast and crew of the hit Animal Planet series “Finding Bigfoot” will be filming not too terribly far from where we live in a couple of weeks. Anyone familiar with the show knows of the town hall meetings. Well, on the 16th of this month, one such meeting will be held up in Chiloquin, Oregon. See the article about it here. We’re making plans to attend. With us there, there’s a chance we’ll end up on-screen in the episode when it airs. Keep watching this blog/website for updates as this progresses.

As you all know, Desirée and I have a book in edits right now called “Hidden Tribe“. That book is a work of fiction, but it’s inspired in large part by real-life events surrounding at least one sasquatch I encountered while growing up in central Ohio. For those of you who aren’t familiar with those accounts, you can see a post here that went on-line several years ago listing them.

We are also members of a local sasquatch research group called State of Jefferson Sasquatch Research. If anyone has any sasquatch accounts, especially ones taking place in northern California or southern Oregon, please get in touch with me regarding those.

Mermaids

A couple of years ago Desiree Lee and I dropped our TV service in favor of Netflix. So, if a show isn’t on Netflix, and we don’t see advertising for it somewhere else, things that would be of interest to us slip by us once in a while. This is the case with the Animal Planet show “Mermaids“. Fiction or not, it got us both to doing a lot of thinking – both in general terms, and along the lines of projects she and I are currently writing individually. This thinking has spurred this post – and the idea for a possible new, non-fiction, project.

Has anyone out there reading this post has a sighting of a creature or being they would classify as a mer-creature? I hesitate to simply say “mermaid”, because that would only indicate the female of such a species. “Merman” would only indicate the male of such a species. So, I’ll say “merfolk” for the duration of this post. And any others I post here in the future on this topic. If you have had such a sighting, please get in touch with me via the “Contact” page on my website. I’d be very interested in hearing from you. Please don’t waste my time, or your own, with jokes. I’m not interested. This request is for serious eye-witness sightings. If I get enough of a response to this post, I’ll talk more about the potential non-fiction project I have in mind. If not, I won’t bother due to perceived lack of interest.
