THIS TRIP IS FULL. No slots remaining.
BFRO organizers bring expedition participants to areas where
they will have encounters with Bigfoots at night. The odds of
success depend on their selection of locations, among other
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.
The organizer of this trip is Larry
Sidwell, who has attended several BFRO expeditions over the years.
West Virginia is often overshadowed by Ohio in terms of media
attention related to bigfoots.
Prior to the Internet there seemed
to be relatively few sightings etc. reported in West Virginia compared to
Ohio and Pennsylvania, likely becausew there were no monthly meetings for
bigfoot researchers as had been happening in Ohio for many years, and
occasionally in Pennsylvania.
Once the Internet came around in the
1990's and the BFRO provided an easy way to report sightings, West Virgina
reports started to come in at a decent rate.
The BFRO conducted a
few expeditions in West Virgnia prior to "Finding Bigfoot". Then did three
episodes partly or fully in West Virginia for the TV series. For two TV
episodes the main contact and advisor was Dr. Russ Jones (author of
"Appalachian Bigfoot"). He will be attending this trip and helping
to finalize the best location.
