These hundreds of ranges make Nevada the most mountainous state in the country." National Park Service

Nevada Sasquatch: How Did You Become Interested In Bigfoot?

Recently, I received an email asking if I knew of any Reno/Tahoe Bigfoot conferences scheduled in the near future. "I am an avid, longtime Saquatch enthusiast." the email said.

I replied, "There are none that I know of."

That is when the wheels started turning.

After a follow up email, I came to know that this person was a woman, Jeannie, and I thought, "I wonder how she became interested in Bigfoot?" It's a subject that is always of interest to me.

I asked her if she wouldn't mind sharing her background with me and if I could share it here. She happily obliged.

A lil background about myself. I am 51 years old and am employed in the medical field. I am originally from Oregon. I grew up in Eugene and spent many years roaming the forests of the Cascades with my older brother. During this time I had many occurrences where we heard, smelled and felt unusual things. Unfortunately, never actually seeing what might be producing them. I have been interested in "Our Forest Friends" for about 30 years. I spend a great deal of time reading all that is on the various sites on the internet to keep up to date and have spent some time hiking in this area since moving to Reno. My friends think I'm obsessed with the subject, but to me there is absolutely nothing more fascinating, and my dream is to finally, one day, see one up close.

Thanks for that, Jeannie.

Now I'd like to hear from more of you. Please feel free to drop me a line at the email link on the right side of this page. Also, you can leave a comment below, but if you do, please keep the language appropriate, and at least leave a first name, and not just as "Anonymous." If you leave something in the comments, please be aware that I may repost it here in the main blog so it is more easily read by new visitors. I always do my best to respect peoples privacy. Thanks! I look forward to hearing from more of you.
