A listener writes “Hi Wes, I’ll be honest, when I first began listening to your show, I was skeptical on some of the first person accounts; there were a few I absolutely believed, while others I took with a grain of salt.
But, I now too have experienced something and it makes me rethink other people’s accounts and I have much more respect for those willing to share their story.
I recently was camping out in Washington, by the wind river, and I cannot explain what I saw. I would love to chat with you sometime, even to get some possible answers. Im a avid hiker/backpacker in the pnw. I’m a former deputy, military veteran and currently work for a large metropolitan government entity, so my privacy is of the upmost concern (I was a detective as well and your interview skills and patience are much appreciated). I’m trying to wrap my head around what we saw and heard and I can’t come up with a logical explanation. We also had a chain of events occur, which made me even more open to the idea they were connected.
The next day, when we were leaving our site, we had even more of a revelation regarding the size of the “things” we saw; whatever we saw moved bilaterally (upright) and the speed was unreal. I walked out to the “sighting” area and had my partner take a video of me walking on the trail so we could gauge how far these “things” were and using trees as a guide for potential size.
I’m still trying to wrap my head around all of it, and based on the totality of the circumstances, I’m having a hard time thinking it was animal related; we had somethings happen on my phone (in airplane mode) and heard noises throughout the night.
If you would like to chat, Thanks for your time.”
