Skip to comments.(1972) Memory told of an early morning encounter with hairy biped near Buchanan (Virginia)
Posted on 03/26/2011 2:44:29 PM PDT by lowbridge
We were in the North Creek Campground about 10-15 miles North and east of Buchanon Va. An area called Arcadia, between The Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian trail and Interstate 81. We had the luck of getting what we called the sportsman's shelter, one of only two in the area provided on a first come first serve basis.
There were 7 of us, and it was a Saturday night. The shelter was a 3 sided shelter with a wooden floor and raised approx. 3 feet off the ground. In front of the open side is the area for a campfire. At about midnight, we had gone to bed around 11:30 or so, I was awakened by a strong stench and a presence in the shelter with us.
We were all in sleeping bags, side by side with our heads against the rear wall and facing the large fire we had going in front of the shelter. What I saw made me freeze, I could not move even though I wanted to. I wanted to wake the others but I couldnt speak. The animal was standing on its hind legs and because the fire was directly behind it, it was a silhouette of a tall, 7ft. hairy ape like figure.
I remember the hair covered it from head to toe, but could not make out any facial features because the light was behind it. After a short time I felt a liquid splash my cheek and it took a moment for me to realize that it was urinating between myself and the guy next to me. Actually, it was urinating on the guy's sleeping bag next to mine. The smell was very strong, pungent. When finished it stepped off the shelter floor and disappeared.

Oops. That was me when I used to drink too much. Sorry.
Funny! I am watching that now!
Early Helen Thomas spotting.
Aw man. You can get it free online now. I was trying to describe this movie to my wife a few years ago and ended up buying it to show her. VHS is all they had available. She hated it. I remember being scared when I watched it as a kid.
Somebody call Coach Saban. We got us a blue-chipper up here.
Before she became first lady, Moosechelle had to take stateside vacations that didn’t cost as much.
Yep hard to believe some of these films are now Public Domain you sure own a copy now lol. My next to watch “The Beach Girls and the Monster”.
Thanks for the link. I love stuff like this even tho I am not a believer.
Thats the one. I had to go look at the thumbnails of the movie This site is pretty cool they have thumbnails for every minute in the movie!
Only 7 feet tall? Must have been a young one.
Senator Bigfoot: “Yes, it’s raining in your tent!”
My grandparents lived in that area, and I remember when I would visit as a kid there were often sighting reports in the newspapers by fishermen and the like.
Bigfoot has moved to North Carolina. He was spotted a few days ago. (They have good moonshine stills in NC)
Looks like a hairy Powers Booth standing there behind Patterson.
I have a sighting listed on Bfro.net in Colorado, circa 1982. Still can’t figure out what it was.
I saw that when I was a kid at a drive in (the seven ups was the opening movie I think). For years, every time I heard an unusual noise in the woods behind our house, I was convinced there was a big foot lurking around.
Big and hairy, sure it wasn’t Janet Reno?
The story is a fraud. Michelle Obama was only 8 years-old at the time.
I can still remember being scared out of my mind as a young kid by the news reports of what came to be known as “The Flatwoods Monster”. It happened in the early 50’s in West Virginia and it caused quite a stir at the time.
Wait a minute here. Helen Thomas?
While standing up?
OK, I'll buy that.
