Gus, if you haven't gotten tickets already you might want to check before you make the trip--I know they have limited space and only sell a set number of tickets...wouldn't want to make the trip then find out you couldn't get in. ;)

Where are you traveling from?

We've been a couple of times, first time in 2004 and the second in (I think) 2006. My biggest reason for going was to meet people I 'knew' from the old bigfoot forums, and that part was always fun. There are always some speakers I'd like to hear and some who are hard to sit through lol...maybe one of these years we'll get back. I was hoping Cliff Barackman would be there this year but he told me that he had scheduling conflicts with FB. Dang it!

I'm coming about 4 hours in from Indiana. I actually already contacted them and they let me purchase overflow tickets through paypal so I should be covered.

Well, we're pretty small and not real busy here lol... probably 3/4's of the actual discussion is social and non-bigfoot related at this point. :lol: Most of us entered "been there, done that" mode a long time ago regarding specific topics, and things like conferences. But like I said, with the right line-up, I wouldn't mind doing Ohio again sometime, but even for us it's a 5-hour drive. If you're involved in other forums or Facebook pages, I bet there people going that you're familiar with!

Much of the weekend was ruined by the storms but it was generally perceived that all had a good time meeting eachother. The park is enormous and was a lot of fun to navigate.
Bob Gimlin was a character for sure. I had read that he did not like to answer probing questions about his experience, especially those that could discredit his sighting. That part held true because those who asked about Heironimus and other types of questions were hammered back and dismissed one way or another.
I attempted to read the guys patterns and it was fascinating; he was either telling the truth, or had told a lie for so long that it had become second nature for him. I personally don't care either way because the whole story is a fascination to me whether fact or faked.

I will say that it was awesome to see some low budget movie premiers as well.

My personal opinion is that this group could be a bit more organized but I don't think I will hesitate to go again next season. I may sneak in some fishing while there too. :thumbs:
