Dr. Matthew Johnson Breaks the Internet at Bigfoot Habituation Conference

At his TS-USA Bigfoot habituation Conference Dr. Matthew Johnson of revealed the "rest of the story" about on of his Southern Oregon Habituation Area (SOHA) experience. 

He says he saw a portal open up with a red sky with dark vegetation in the foreground with two small creatures with red glowing eyes. 

Two 3 foot tall creatures were witnessed by John Carlson and Adam Davies. When Matthew Johnson flashed a light towards the portal the Stargate-like portal  closed. When Mr. Johnson turned the flashlight away and as Carlson and Davies walked towards the portal location it would open back up. Twice more Johnson shined the light and twice more he shut it down.

Later Johnson claimed that he slept while Davies and Johnson stayed awake all night. While sleeping he was visited by a Sasquatch in a dream. 

The dream Sasquatch explained to Johnson that Portals was merely a "doorway" for Sasquatch and the 3 ft creatures were merely guards. The Sasquatch further explained that light was a common way to close portals.

Rare Opportunity to Meet Bigfoot Archivist and Legend Larry Lund

Larry Lund with Jay Leno from the Tonight Show

DATE: Sunday, April 19th
TIME: 12:30-3:00
WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Larry Lund

This is a HopsSquatch you will not want to miss. Larry Lund doesn't travel the Bigfooot circuit as much as he used to. His last public event was possibly three years ago at the annual Skamania County Bigfoot Bash. It is a rare honor to have the opportunity to meet the man who did research with all the original four pillars of Bigfoot research. That's right, Larry Lund rubbed elbows with John Green, Rene Dehinden, Grover Krants and still keeps in contact with Peter Byrne.

Before Finding Bigfoot, in the 90's, the Bigfoot authority you wanted on your TV show was Larry Lund. Larry made several TV appearances including the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

A humble researcher that makes the distinction of being a bigfoot authority, but not a bigfoot expert. As he puts it himself, "How can you be an expert in something you can't prove exists?"

Having Larry Lund speak at HopsSquatch has been 2 years in the making and a tribute to the high regard veteran researchers have for the event. Don't miss this rare opportunity to learn what Bigfoot research was like with original four pillars of Bigfoot research and hear stories they don't publish online.

Award-Winning Scientist has New Solutions for Academic Acceptance of Bigfoot Research

Barbara Olvera will present at HopsSquatch with new ideas for Bigfoot research.

DATE: Sunday, March 15th
TIME: 12:30-3:00
WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Barbara Olvera

Ask anybody who has been bigfooting in the last 10 years and they will tell you, despite technology and the suggestion of paranormal activity there haven't been many new ideas since the original four pillars of bigfooting (Byrne, Dehinden, Green, and Krantz) started to investigated the elusive Sasquatch.

Enter award-winning scientist Barbara Olvera. Barbara has successfully navigated through the politics of bigfoot and her inclusive nature has already built bridges between isolated patches of research. Barbara is working on novel solutions based on her her collaboration with scientist that will promote, and hopefully propel bigfoot research in a way that will gain even more academic acceptance.

You will not want to miss this ground-breaking event. This will be the debut of a manifesto that should create shockwaves in the world of bigfoot research.

Barbara Olvera lives in Portland Oregon and attends Portland State University pursuing a BS, in Biology.  Her interest in Bigfoot came after attending her first expedition in May 2012. The expedition triggered a memory when she was 8 years old. At the time, when she was 8, she thought she saw Bigfoot on the ridge behind our house in Reedsport, OR.

The memory was easy to dismiss as she had just watched an episode of 6 million dollar man starring Bigfoot, but the expedition was encouraging and gave weight to the possibility that there might have been more to the encounter.

Barbara spent most of my summer in 2012, about 6 weeks, out in the woods searching….in the hopes of seeing one.  She became an investigator with the BFRO in 2013, eventually leading multiple expeditions in the Northwest.  Barbara also works with the Olympic Project. With her scientific background and education she noticed inconsistencies in how most Bigfoot data and research is gathered. Barbara will share some novel solutions that will promote a welcomed higher standard for Bigfoot research.

Guy Edwards will moderate a panel of bigfooters as they react to Barbara's presentation for the first time. Join us as some of the top bigfoot researchers in the community gauge the potential impact of  Barbara's presentation.

DATE: Sunday, March 15th
