Wanted to take a moment and wish my friend Scott McClean

it's a milestone year for him - the big FIVE - OH!!  Wow! 50 years - we've shared some great times at bigfoot conferences, expeditions and other memorable get-togethers!

What can I say about Scott?  Met him 9 years ago at the Willow Creek International Bigfoot Symposium and the rest is a friendship I'll always cherish.

Scott with Bob Gimlin at the Yakima Bigfoot Round-Up, May 2009.

He's the one who exhaustively researches newspaper archives for articles that pertain to bigfoot, sasquatch & wild men.  He compiled his research in 2005 into the self-published book, "Big News Prints" (yes, an ode to Dr. Grover Krantz's "Big Footprints".) Since then he has continued to add to this fantastic collection of archival newspaper articles and you can obtain a copy on CD-R from his website .

One of the hundreds of articles Scott has found during his archival research. Amazing behavior observed in this one!

He has also been intimately involved in every conference I have ever organized and created THE BEST artwork, logos, posters and t-shirt designs for all of them! ...epic one and all!
