2009 Ohio Expedition

Dates: April 16 - 19, 2009 (Thurs. - Sun.)

This will be the second BFRO expedition in Ohio.

The previous expedition in Ohio yielded some amazing incidents -- enough to justify no less than three subsequent non-public expeditions to the same area.

Unfortunately the sasquatches in that area became increasingly less interested in our presence there at night after a few different forrays. They eventually stopped coming around completely after they got wise.

It was experiences like these that showed us how these animals successfully avoided being hunted in the past (or even photographed, for the most part), and also demonstrated how important it is to be fully prepared for the closest approaches on the first expedition in an area. When that first expedition happened in Ohio we did not have the amount of equipment and know-how that we have today. If we would have had a bunch of thermal imagers in the Ruh-rack configuration for that trip, we would have gotten some very interesting footage from that first expedition in Ohio.


The 2009 expedition will target an even less populated part of Ohio, from where there are various indications of their presence. A lot of motivation and courage has been building up among the Ohio BFRO to get something recorded with thermal imagers in that state, where the BFRO was born in 1995. Now that everyone in the Ohio BFRO knows how important it is to strategically anticipate close approaches on the first forray in an active area, there is very good chance the 2009 expedition will yield some footage.

The man who did such an excellent job organizing the first Ohio expedition and picking the locations in Columbiana County that yielded such good action (Cleveland area hospital administrator Mark Maisel) will be organizing the 2009 expedition in Ohio. Maisel
is now accepting requests for participation by non-members. You can contact him to inquire via email ( after you have read the Frequently Asked Questions about the expeditions.
