Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Tom Burnette & Rob Riggs, authors of Bigfoot.
On June 6,7, and 8, we (Tom Burnette and Rob Riggs, co-authors of Bigfoot: Exploring the Myth & Discovering the Truthâ€”currently the number one best-selling Bigfoot book on Amazon.com), will host our first annual Bigfoot conference, campout, and drumming circle in the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina at Curtis Creek campground in the half-million acre Pisgah National Forest. There have been numerous sightings on the steep mountain slopes of that region since the days of the old Cherokee Nation.
Native people throughout North America have historically claimed the Sasquatch are drawn to the outskirts of their bonfires and dance ceremonies, so our goal will be to likewise attract the interaction of the Bigfoot. We will send out much love, good intentions, and positive energy to our possible related ancestors, so please bring your drum and an optimistic attitude. No guns allowed, of course. Take Highway 70 five miles east out of Old Fort, turn up Curtis Creek Road, and follow the signs.
We will speak at the conference and participants will be invited to share their stories. The event is free and open to the public, but there is a $5.00 per night camping charge. You can set up a tent or RV, but there are no electric services available. There are coin-operated showers and bathroom facilities, so bring lots of quarters if you intend to bathe. Hopefully, the beasts will also bathe for the event and we wonâ€™t have to deal with their nasty sulfurous odor.
Donations will be accepted for the benefit of our ongoing research, which includes plans for more such events in the near future in wild places in different parts of the country, based in large part on the suggestions of our readers.
