After receiving Jordan's report, I immediately, I emailed him some of my thoughts on his encounter that occurred January 8, 2012.
Jordan was pretty shook up, as most are after such a close encounter. I'm sure that second time when he opened his eyes, that it was like staring into the face of the boogey man. He was confused and a little freaked out. I wanted to try and put his mind at ease, and let him know that he had the rare privileged to have had an interaction with them.
I've heard reports from that area, so I wasn't surprised on hearing about his. In fact, it made me very happy. It has been an area of Nevada that I've been wanting to make some recon trips to, so this justifies my theory. While hallucinations are common with hypothermia, I think he seemed lucid enough that he was not seeing things. Especially with the palm print he found on the car. The shaking of the car is not an uncommon event, and the chattering he heard, though rare, were similar to the Ron Moorehead recordings. I'm convinced that he encountered at least one sasquatch, with a second, maybe a juvenile that kept it's distance. The chattering he heard was the two sasquatch vocalizing to each other.
CLICK HERE to listen to an example, similar to the chatter that Jordan heard.
My theory has been that if there is a bigfoot population in that area, which I believe there is, that they head toward the Humboldt River to hunt for deer, antelope and coyote at night, and that they possibly spend their days at higher elevations. I think they also cruise along the highway to look for roadkill for an easy meal. There has been quite a few reports of this occurring around the country. I know I've seen rabbits, snakes, fox and coyotes dead on that stretch of road, so it only make sense to me. I've also seen burros and mustangs that have also met there fate on roads across Nevada. Not to mention all the free ranging sheep and cattle in the area, that would surly make an easy meal. Jordan told me that when he was making the walk back to his vehicle, he did see a fresher blood stain on the road. Whatever it was was no longer on the road.
The mountain ranges on both sides of the Humboldt River, have many naturally occurring springs and perennial streams. Though northern Nevada is considered mostly high desert, the mountains contain stands of cottonwoods, aspens, juniper and pinion pine. I've seen wild currant bushes in these areas also. Wild mustangs, mule deer, antelope, burros, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, bear, bobcat, marmot, and a multitude of game birds also make their homes in these mountains and high desert.
These mountains hold many caves and old mine shafts for shelter. The Lovelock Caves, where the "Red Headed Giants" were killed, is only about 40 miles from the location where Jordan had his encounter. Nevada, especially this area, is one of the least densely populated areas in the U.S. Less people of course makes good wildlife habitat. Less people also means a much smaller chance for bigfoot sightings. I think this is why there are far fewer sightings reported in Nevada overall.
Us, of the squatchier intellect know sasquatch can be curious. I think that, in some way, they/it may have known that he was in distress, and they were checking to see if he was OK. Who knows? Maybe they were trying to keep him awake because of the cold. If they wanted to harm him, they easily could have, but they didn't. What sticks in my mind is that they hung out, and kept an eye on him, basically until the NHP showed up and got the car back on the road.
I've heard squawks and whoops, and have had them near our camp at night, but never so close an encounter. There has been 3 instances when I know there were a squatch or two around me, and I know they are capable of tearing me apart, but they seem to just want to be left alone. Please know that many can be inquisitive. Others avoid humans like the plague. I know Jordan must have been a little traumatized, especially being alone, and not able to shut the window. I envy him, and feel for him at the same time. Now I'm sure he believes they are real. I let him know that many of the world's top scientists believe that sasquatch exist, so he can be assured that I don't think he was losing his mind when all this went down.
Here's part of the follow up I received from Jordan:
"I really appreciate you writing me back. I agree with all the theories. I thought about the roadkill. There actually was a big blood smear not too far from where I was that was still wet. I passed it walking back to the car. I've done so much research since this happened that I need to go further and find more physical evidence. I can agree that they seemed to be checking on me in a way. Never did anything to feel violent. It was funny how when I laid back down that the Envoy would shake. Almost as too keep me awake. I'm also certain there were 2. I heard 2 voices both in different spots too close together in timing that one couldn't have moved that fast. Also I can't believe the stealthy way of moving. I never heard a sound unless it was deliberate. I went through again 2 days ago and didn't stop but got a better view due to the fuller moon. I know the exact spot and have looked at maps and there is nothing but open area. Perfect to disappear in."
I hope to get in a week or two up in that area this summer. Nevada has an amazing beauty that most don't realize we have here. There's a lot more to us than Casinos and gold mines. CLICK HERE to see what Nevada has to offer.
