I will be welcoming Tanner and Hunter to the show. Hunter writes “Hey Wes on August 6th me and my friend were camping and from 9:20pm to 10pm our camp was being circled by more than one Sasquatch. As we were trying to pack and get out as fast as we could.
We were camping on ice house road which is the road you take to get to the Rubicon trail right in the middle of Sacramento and Tahoe. It’s a super popular spot with maybe like 20 different campgrounds but we took an old logging road way off the bedent path in the direction where there was no other camp grounds.
About a mile down this dirt road off to our left I saw a tree structure I pointed it out to my buddy who during quarantine has been watching bigfoot b-flick movies so he immediately started making fun of me for it saying “there is no way bigfoot is big enough to carry those logs”. We drive about another mile to where the road dead ends to a big turn around and that’s where we set up camp.
We tried to find a fishing spot near camp walking a creek for about an hour but no luck and no weird feelings. My friend who is starting to drink decided to keep making fun of me and “call them in” by whooping and tree knocks.
We take off to go fishing and come back to camp around 7pm. Where we split up to go get fire wood, I went to the East side of camp where I did get really creeped out and my friend went down to the West side. About 7:30 I heard a tree knock to the west it sounded like it came from another turn around about 300 yards down the road were we first tried fishing in the day. (this is where I saw the big one later that night)
We have dinner my friend is getting belligerent drunk because we are “camping” still making calls every now and then trying to talk to me but is actually having trouble forming words by 9pm. At 9 I bring up how its dark now, but the sky is still really bright. At 9:20 is when it gets dark and that is when it began.
9:20 We both hear a stick break to the north side of camp that is up hill (15 yards away), I shine my light but do not see anything. Everything was quiet for 5min tell we heard something walk from the initial stick break about 15yards to the east. (I told him we were done drinking and put my cooler in the jeep in case we had to leave quick it was the only thing I didn’t want to leave) When I shined my light I got just one large green shine back. Mind you this is really close to us just outside of our dim fire light. I tell chase to get up and show him. He immediately thinks it’s a bear and I’m looking around and notice that the tree sap on some other trees is sort of shining the same color but is a lot smaller. Against my better judgment we decide to throw a rock at it thinking it is a bear from the eye shine. Chase is so drunk he tries throwing a rock. It falls into a ground squirrel hole; the rock goes completely the wrong direction and he cant even get up he’s so drunk. I throw a rock with my right hand holding our only flashlight in my left hand and get the rock to zing literally right by this shine. That shine got a lot bigger like what ever it was opened its eye wide. Chase saw this and started getting scared and yelling “go away bear”
9:35 I’m walking over to the jeep and chase has the flashlight. To the east side of camp there is an old horse trial. He starts creaming and really getting scared screaming “ITS RIGHT THERE” it was like he flipped a switch and sobered up immediately. I haven’t really seen anything yet and sort of not believing him but he’s describing seeing an all back creature 6’ tall, with bright red eyes that flared its teeth at him as it jumped across the trail. I run over there trying to get through to him as what he wants me to do but he is so scared and unable to speak. I throw all of my stash of light dry wood on the fire and it sustains about a 4×4 x 7-foot-tall fire for the rest of the ordeal. I run back to start the jeep it’s a diesel, so it idles loud and pull it around. He’s screaming its right there about 5 times. He was watching it move from tree to tree. He’s frozen holding the flashlight on this one big tree about 20yards just down hill of camp saying its standing right behind it. I pull the jeep up and put the headlights on that tree but he still won’t move so I convince him to give me the flashlight and he starts breaking down camp.
9:45 I’m walking side to side trying to see if I can see anything around this tree but I’m having no luck and I’m kind of getting fed up and annoyed with chase. Just from how he’s been making fun of me all day and I haven’t seen or heard what he’s seeing so he could still be pulling my leg, but what is keeping me believing him is how he sobered up so fast. Well he pulls the stakes out of the tent with the air mattresses still fully inflated. I’m pissed because I know those won’t fit in the jeep, so I shut off the light and climb into the tent feeling around for the plugs. As I’m in there probably 100 yards south east something lets out a short scream that was high pitched, went to like a roar then just cut off only lasting 5sec. I broke down and started crying but continued to search for the plug. I’ve never froze in my life but it was really hard to keep moving around.
9:50 We both do not care about what is going on around our only focus is putting everything in the jeep which we do. We do not hear or see anything else while we are packing mainly because we both blacked out. We hop in the jeep and take off down the road. Shortly down the road we have a small argument about where his phone is. I’m telling him he’s sitting on it and he says he left in in camp. I pull over into the other small campsite about 300yards away. He actually wants me to go back to the old camp not get out but just see if we see it, I tell him to sit up and sure enough he’s sitting on it.
10:00 (the second camp is on the left side of a sweeping right turn so anything on the right side you wouldn’t be able to see with the headlights but since I turned into the other camps turn out I had to make a U-turn) In the process of turning around my headlights we both see this massive sasquatch standing in front of a tree about 25yards away. It was so fricken big, we both got a good look at it I was able to see everything except for the feet. Me and chase both agreed it was 14’ tall and me and my dad went out there two days later and measured it was 13-14’ tall. Had very light gray skin. Black and gray air all over the body except on its chest, upper stomach, no hair on the top lip all the way to the tip of its conical head making it look like it had a massive forehead. The hair on its head came down to its shoulders in a dread lock fashion so I could not tell where its neck was at all. Its eyes were closed but we could see all the wrinkles on its face and had puckered lips. The biceps on this thing were massive like it had a football strapped to its arms. Both arms hung just below the knee. The shoulder span was just over 5’ it had definite muscle definition but wasn’t barrel chested like I hear in a lot of encounters it was very well proportioned. After seeing that we booked it out of there. From our experience we know for sure there were at least 4 and I believe the 6’ one my friend saw was a juvenile and the big one at the end was a lot older.”
