    So I’ve been on a Finding Bigfoot kick. I’m 50/50 on if they exist. And I know there’s a New Jersey pine barrens episode. But curious if anyone here has any experiences of seeing or hearing a bigfoot in the pines.

    Are folks with size 11 and up foot considered big foots? If so, the pines has it share of them.

    I took a course in Scientific Exploration at Stockton in 1976. When someone brought up the Loch Ness monster, Prof Jan Colin methodically walked us through the arguments. How would a 70 foot plesiosaur would find enough food in the Lock Ness to support not just himself, but an entire breeding population of "Nessies"? The Lock Ness is a peat infiltrated (sorry this is what I remember) aquatic environment with few fish. Also, when they died, where were the carcasses? The water in Lock Ness is quite cold, probably too cold to support Nessie. He presented so many rational arguments against the existence of Nessie that from that moment on I dismissed all Lock Ness theories. On the other hand, why aren't there squirrel skeletons in trees?

    I'm about 1/99 on if they exist, and about 0/100 on if they exist in the Pines. :)

    Many people take the printing on the back of a dollar bill literally. UFO's are a certainty. Where they are from is not. A lot of things were once considered impossible. Heart transplants, a 4 minute mile, men on the moon. It's a strange and wondrous world.

    I totally believe Bigfoot exists. He doesn't live in the pines anymore though. The property taxes in NJ are too high.

    All the neat things in the Pines to discover and we're going to look for Bigfoot? I hear Him and the JD are having a pint tonight at the Oar House in Millville.

    That's no longer true with this passed legislation, correct?

    He has been seen hanging with the Jersey Devil, usually late at night around the Pic.

    Could not find a 'tongue in cheek' smiley. RE taxes will be deductible up to 10K. Or so I've heard.

    How does something that size with accompanying appetite make it in South jersey without ever getting caught or killed by hunters? Answer: It doesn't.

    I read a few years ago that they were considering filming an episode of 'Finding Bigfoot' in the Pine Barrens. If I'd known where they were filming it I had half a mind to dress up in a wookie outfit and scare the bejesus out of all of them. Yes sir.

    Our new governor might catch him, give him citizenship & a drivers license.
    Or simply tax him!
