It Was Walking Back And Forth

A listener writes “My Encounter Took place in 1984 near Dryden Ontario Canada. My best friend Bob lived in the bush 30 miles from Dryden. His closet neighbor was 13 miles away.

I went up to see him in July 1984,we went camping at a bush lake 20 miles from his house. That night something big was walking back and forth behind the tent. At first I thought it was a bear,I was scared every bear attack I ever read flashed before my eyes. Bob said Mark if something comes through this tent lay still and don’t raise up and I said why he lite his lighter and he had a double edged boot knife swing back and forth. Now I’m ready scared I told Bob I can’t stay in this tent lets get a fire going and he said ok. Wes the only light we had was a candle in a coffee can. Bob said ok he light the candle and he said you go first and i said why me and he said I got the knife. Wes at the time none of this was funny but now me and Bob laugh about the shit we did and said thet night. I crawled out of the tent stood up shining that coffee can all around looking to see what was going to get us. We went down to the rock by the lake got a fire going and this thing keep walking back and forth behind the tent. By now we both know what it was the word Bigfoot was never said but we knew. We had a radio in the tent the batteries went dead so we never turned it off all at once that radio started screeching and making the loudest sounds I ever heard we both jumped about 2 feet in the air and Bob said o my god it’s eating the old ladies radio and he said you have to go shut it off and I said why me and he said I got the knife.

So there I went up to the tent with the coffee can with Bob right on my heels. Wes I thought it was in the tent I took baby steps to the tent and dreading every step I took. I peaked in the tent nothing was in there so I crawled in and shut the radio off. I think when the radio went off it scared him as much as us because it was gone. Then we heard a loud Shrill whistle a few minutes later it was back walking behind the tent this went on most of the night we heard the whistle one more time. When the sky started getting light in the east it was gone. Wes we never seen it but we both know it was a Bigfoot. Wes this story is much better with me telling it then writing it lol. Wes I have some questions about that night maybe you can Answer them. Why didn’t it throw stuff at us? Why didn’t it scream at us. What made the radio come on?”

    No offense to anyone when I say this, but when writing an incident, it would be nice if I could read it without having to decipher it. I mean dang. Add a comma. Place a period. Try to speak it so others can read it, for goodness sake.

      Actually this encounter made me laugh. At the time it wasn’t a laughing matter, I get it. But Bob’s comnent ” I got the knife” was hilarious. I don’t care about punctuation, that’s not what this is about. People need to lighten up! I see this on Tony’s show also. (Thank you Wes for introducing me to Tony. My husband and I are moving to Idaho from Oregon thanks to him. Lol. Ask him, there is more to it.) I hate people being so critical 🙄. So many are nervous about sharing and then they get land blasted. Wes,you are awesome. I guess you’re part to blame also for my husband and I moving to Idaho
      Lol. Call Tony, he’ll fill you in. His guest Chad had a big part to do with it. Keep up the good work!

    You can all be offended if you want. I am not one to say mean things here, but do think it wouldn’t hurt anything if the entry was at least legible.
