The Bigfoot phenomenon has captivated imaginations around the United States, engendering television shows, books, movies and, most recently, so-called Bigfoot Tours.
These tours are most common in the Pacific Northwest, home to the highest concentration of claimed Bigfoot sightings. While there have been “sightings” reported in every state, Washington holds the honor for the most.
Travelers to the region have the opportunity to attempt to find a Bigfoot — or Sasquatch — firsthand with an experienced guide. The tours typically involve a charismatic guide talking about local sightings and Sasquatch lore during a hike or ATV ride through the forest— even if you don’t see a Sasquatch you cover some beautiful terrain.
Among the companies offering such tours are Sasquatch Country Adventures, which is based out of Harrison Hot Springs in British Columbia. Guides take visitors through pristine wilderness on a six-person Polaris Ranger Crew UTV, and talk about the evidence found in the area and local Sasquatch lore.
Another group, Exotic Hikes, hosts overnight camping trips on Washington’s rainforested Olympic Peninsula. Guides lead participants through the forest at night in search of a ‘Squatch.
For the most adventurous of travelers, the organization The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization takes serious ‘Squatch believers, even those not experienced with Bigfoot hunting, on multiday tours in several U.S. states, including Washington, Oregon, California, North Carolina and Kentucky. The tours are extremely popular and fill up quickly, so advance reservations are highly recommended.
Live in the eastern half of the United States? You can get fresh meals sourced from New England farms from Azuluna. The healthy meal service provider was founded by a group of Connecticut-based farmers, chefs and nutritionists, with an aim to provide New England locals with well-balanced entrees and side dishes that support New England farms. Now, the business has expanded beyond New England.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
For some reason when everyone hears snow is coming, they runs to the store for milk and bread. They are definitely not the first things I run to the store for. Instead of milk and bread, make sure you have these things stocked up to have the best snow day yet.
