Just wanted to express my thanks for a wonderful trip “searching for Big Foot” today. My 11-year-old grandson & I really enjoyed the adventure and Farah, crew & Mike, the Captain went out of their way to make sure it was all that the trip was advertised to be. The weather was perfect, the listening devices were excellent & all the added bits of information, besides the recorded parts by Cliff Barackman, made it a great day. Even though I’ve lived in Portland for over 50 years I saw & learned things from the river level that made the trip worthwhile.
We had the best time. The weather was perfect and the boat crew was awesome. Thank you for all your help and for putting on such a great adventure.
Everyone should do the “Bigfootin on a Jet-Boat” Cryptozoology Expedition with the Portland Spirit. Very educational with eye-witness statements and factual evidence, including plaster cast footprints. Personally, I have my own journal of experiences in the Herman Creek area, with several different footprints photos and other bigfoot encounters like smelling and hearing our local celebrity, and I was with several other witnesses each time. This expedition was very validating to my 10 years of Sasquatch journaling!
