As night sets, it’s 60 degrees and starting to rain. We are at base camp but will soon depart to scout an area where a local resident believes he had an encounter with a "squatch."

Local tv news stations here in the UP will, this evening, broadcast an appeal for more eyewitnesses to come forward. I am told so far 2 new witnesses have come forward since a newspaper appeal ran this week.

BFRO’s Expedition Leader Matt Moneymaker is keeping a close watch on the weather. He is concerned too much wind will make it difficult to hear the indicative sounds of a Bigfoot.

But storm or no storm, tonight’s mission is going forward.

Andy is wondering if he should call his parents and say, "good-bye."
