Day 11 of the SIR Christmas stories from Scott Barta

by Michael on December 31, 2012

Many knowledgeable and honorable people in the field in the Bigfoot world know that you can only show or try and prove about 5% of the things that happen. Evidence is difficult to obtain, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

Our 12 days of SIR Christmas stories will share some of our best experiences. We can’t prove these stories in some instances and will not even try, but these are the things that we talk about in-house and around the campfire, and it is our gift to you this holiday season.

Thanks, Mike – Co-founder of Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies

Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas comes from Scott Barta

Scott Barta - Sasquatch / Bigfoot Researchers

As the year closes out today December 31st, 2012 and with my 50th year on the planet in the books I feel at ease.

The year was mostly uneventful which for the Barta’s  is a good thing.  I am far removed from physically being able to go to where I want to go to search for Sasquatch.

I know if I wanted to bad enough I could find places in Kansas, Oklahoma and all 50 States for that matter.  But Colorado is where my best friend is and Sasquatch is always on our minds but Mike and I have known each other since we were three so there is so much more to our relationship than just Sasquatch.

I hope one day to be able to get up and go to the mountains to commune.  I can tell by the conversations amongst you how much your surrounding area means to you.

In Kansas unless you are a Farmer or Hunter you don’t spend a lot of time out on the land.  People here usually travel to a camping destination that is either at a Lake in a controlled environment or a campground RV site.  Most of the land is owned and under production of some sort.

You don’t feel the wildness anywhere I have been and I have been everywhere in Kansas.  That is not to say the waterways in Kansas and Oklahoma are not great habitat.  I just don’t think it is probable in these small areas to build a relationship with our friends.  They have to be much more wary in Kansas or the waterways of Oklahoma because they are land locked and much more vulnerable if discovered.

Now, having said that, Eastern Oklahoma  and Kansas are a whole other story.  Arla Williams is living proof of that and I went to Honobia, Oklahoma  with Mike two years ago.  The Sasquatches there are very finicky as to who they will deal with but so are all of our Sasquatches.  The land in these areas plays in their favor so I think they are more like our Rocky Mountain friends.

And I know Robin and Jon have friends on the front range of Colorado.   My point is I like coming to Colorado for many reasons not all Sasquatch related.  I have Uncles and Aunts and many cousins in Colorado.  Plus I lived in Colorado from 1986 until 1991.  I met my wife in Colorado as she was a transplant from Iowa.

All this leads me to say I go into Sasquatch suspended animation while I am in Kansas for the most part but through talking with Mike and the e-mails, I still get excited and immediately go into Sasquatch mode when Mike or one of our members has an experience.

Mike and I have been on an adventure together for 47 years and we still have the Kansas boy coursing through our veins.  Kansas is where we were forged but the steel and the fortitude shows itself in the Mountains of Colorado or anywhere we go looking for our next adventure.    Most of you have seen how we roll and it is forward with gusto.  Stay thirsty my friends.
