Hey, Y'All! We've Got Ourselves A Bigfoot!
Oh, Gawd bless the Intarweb, without which I would never have known that the deep, dark, and skeery backwoods of Virginia, my home state, might possibly, maybe, just conceivably harbor a Bigfoot! Yeah, baby, you heard me, a BIGFOOT, so screw you, West Virginia and your wimpy-ass, red-eyed, flighty little Mothman, WE'VE GOT A BIGFOOT!
No, really! Check out "In Search of Bigfoot" in the August issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors:
"It’s midnight and the black veil of darkness that pervades the woods has been transformed into varying shades of green, thanks to the night vision goggles we’re using. It’s as if we’ve stepped out of reality and into a video game."
"We’re looking for Bigfoot in a wildlife management area on the edge of the Rappahannock River, about an hour from Washington D.C. It’s a strange thing to be doing on a Sunday night in the woods of Eastern Virginia, because A) Bigfoot does not exist according to mainstream scientists, and B) if he does exist, it’s hard to imagine the creature living here, half an hour from the nearest D.C. Metro stop."
"But Dranginis claims to have seen a Bigfoot creature not far from here several years ago, and a number of sightings have been reported in this general vicinity dating back to the 1950s."
There's lots more information (including a sightings map) over at the Virginia Bigfoot Organization and Sasquatch Watch of Virginia websites

A big "thank-you!" to kitten_moon for making my Wednesday evening just a leetle more interesting by posting this in the Shenandoah Valley LiveJournal.
