A Great Big Bigfoot Thanks goes out to Randy Harrington for being our first Museum Member Guest Blogger and sharing his recent visit and pictures, while hanging out with Mike Rugg during his trip to California from his home state of Missouri:
My wife and I recently took a two week trip out to Vegas and the West coast. After several days in Vegas, we cut across the Southern section of California to the coast. We drove the scenic highway along the coast up to San Fransisco. Before reaching San Fransisco, we would drive by Felton California. Being a bigfoot researcher, I had to stop in and check out the Bigfoot museum there.
Other patrons entered the shop and browsed while I was there. Most wanted to discuss our favorite subject...bigfoot. There was one gentleman from New Zealand, and a couple people local visiting. Mike was full of Knowledge and had many stories to tell, some from notable researchers, and plenty of stories from his own personal boots on the ground research.
I shared with him my sightings and research. We went to my Facebook page so I could share photo's with him. We discussed research technique success and failures...he was very open and generous with his knowledge and experiences. He seemed to be appreciative of my efforts and techniques and results, and I appreciate someone of his caliber validating what I have done. He said he would incorporate some of the things that have worked for me in his current area's...and I purchased a drawing Mike made of the famous Patty walking the creek in Northern California... Mike is an accomplished artist. Of course I had him sign the art.
Mike is a great guy, I would encourage anyone that ever goes to California to make it a point to stop in and visit with him. I am glad I did.
