2009 Honobia Bigfoot Conference - Recap In Brief

Me with Dr. Jeff Meldrum

I had a wonderful time yesterday down in the forested hills and hollows of Oklahoma's Kiamichi Mountains while attending the Honobia Bigfoot Festival and Conference. Beautiful scenery, fantastic legends, and fair food - what more could you want?

The conference, sponsored by Mid-American Bigfoot and TEXLA Research, was peopled by some excellent researchers who shared various aspects of Bigfootery through talks, presentations, and assorted booths showcasing samples of equipment, track castings, and the results of several expeditions and experiments. Among those present was the creator of the popular "Laughsquatch" comics, J. Robert Swain and noted anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum, author of the exceptional Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science.

If you have the opportunity next year, you should definitely make the journey along those winding mountain roads to the small hamlet of Honobia. With breathtaking scenery, colorful characters, and the opportunity to witness a bigfoot or two, you're bound to have a great time.
