Bigfoot is out here somewhere, and searching for him along the well traveled Appalachian Trail is not going well. So I think I am going to start straight lining ( not traveling on the trail but trekking from one known point to another in a straight line ) to widen my search of this elusive gentle creature. I am also going to increase my howls and tree knocks at night when I am off the trail in an effort to increase my chances of a response. While I have not seen any evidence of Mr. Foot I have not seen any evidence of mountain lions either, which is probably good, but I know they exist as well. So while I walk the next 1839 miles or so I will be dramatically increasing my efforts to locate the missing link! Wish me luck.
