WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Shelly Covington Montana

A native Texan, Shelly is known as a wilderness and wildlife enthusiast with a passion for conservation and preservation. Shelly’s search for the truth was fueled by her husband’s unexplained encounter in the winter of 1982 in the forest of east Texas.

Shelley is also a member of the Olympic Project, an association of dedicated researchers, investigators, biologists and trackers committed to documenting the existence of Sasquatch through science and education. “I know that the Olympic Project is the perfect research group for me”, recognizing the consistent years of effort from The Olympic Project in regards to collecting detailed data and solid research. “Facts are truth, and I am hopeful with proper Wildlife DNA collection and analysis it could be a benefit and a standard in the search of the enigma we call Bigfoot.”


We don't get to see her often enough in Portland and this is a real treat to get her unique insights into a research.

November 15th: The Most Controversial HopsSquatch Yet

Artist Interpretation of Bigfoot Portal with Bigfoot and Dr.J in Front

John [Carlson] and Adam [Davies] accidentally triggered and opened up a portal. Out of the portal came about 3 foot tall, two of them, guardians of the portal." --Dr. Matthew Johnson;

Don't miss the most controversial HopsSquatch yet! Dr. Matthew Johnson has two successful habituation areas, and he claims one of them has opening and closing portals. He is also on record suggesting that Sasquatch have cloaking abilities. 

DATE: Sunday, November 15th
TIME: 12:30-3:00
WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Dr. Matthew Johnson


His history goas back to the year 2000 and Guy Edwards from Bigfoot Lunch Club categorizes his history ion three phases. 

PHASE 1: The Encounter | July 2000Dr. Matthew Johnson's Bigfoot history begins at Oregon Caves National Park in Southern Oregon on July 1st 2000. You can read his a detailed BFRO report of his encounter. Here's the very short version. After exiting a cave, Dr. Johnson was with his family when he was alerted by a foul smell and loud vocalizations. After walking away from his family to take care of "business" he scanned downhill towards them and saw a Bigfoot. If you have ever heard Dr. Johnson recall this story in person, he gets very emotional at this point. This is the point where he expresses his concern for his family's safety.
The encounter was huge bigfoot news for the mainstream media and went viral, probably because of the embedded irony that Dr. Matthew Johnson was a psychologist telling a story that sounds nuts to the general public. He went on to do several national media interviews and kept to this non-paranormal version.

PHASE 2: 2011 Cloaking Revealed | June 2011Fast-forward to 11 years later when Dr. Johnson had a conversation with only four people present. The conversation would be a milestone in the retelling of the Oregon Cave encounter.
Dr. Johnson was a guest speaker at Toby Johnson's (no relation) Sasquatch Symposium. Paranormal researcher Thom Powell was also in attendance as another guest speaker. A conversation between the two of them would reveal a huge detail missing from Dr. Johnson's retelling of his Oregon Cave encounter. The missing detail? The Bigfoot in Matthew Johnson's encounter had the ability to cloak.

PHASE 3: The Portal | June 2014After years of keeping his Southern Oregon Habituation Area (SOHA) to himself, Dr. Matthew Johnson began to invite hand-picked researchers to his bigfoot habituation site. In June of 2014, Adam Davies and John Carlson were among the exclusive researchers allowed to camp at SOHA and what they encountered still defies explanation, although Dr. Matthew Johnson tried at his conference. At the conference Dr. Johnson talked about visible portals to other dimensions and half-sized bigfoots with glowing eyes.
