BFRO organizers bring participants to areas where they will have
encounters with Bigfoots at night. The odds of success depend on their
selection of locations, among other things. Selecting the best locations
depends upon sighting/encounter information -- the more, the better -- so
the BFRO selects organizers who have the most information in a given
state, and who have experience organizing trips there.
of this expedition are long time BFRO investigator Rick Reles, and Steve
Lamb and Jeff Blair. Rick has co-organized many expeditions with Lori
Wade. He pays close attention to sighting reports from the Carolinas, and
he will be assisted by several experienced bigfoot investigators from
BFRO now encourages all attendees to have three types of optical devices
that are very helpful on trips like these:
1) Small daylight
video camera with 50x *optical* zoom -- basically a small telescope
that records video. ($400)
with 4x zoom for use at night. (BFRO brand = $1000)
drone with excellent zoom camera. (DJI Air 3 = $1,550).
Among these three items, the one you will find most helpful in a bigfoot
area is a thermal camera. Without this type of device it is unlikely that
you will spot and record any animals in the dark.
The BFRO sells
high-resolution (384 lines)
thermal cameras for much lower than retail price, because we want as many
people as possible to afford them. See BFRO homepage for more info about
those cameras. Click on thermal image of the guy with a dog. You will not
regret owning one of those devices. A good thermal video camera is MUCH
more useful for squatching than the best nightvision video camera.
