This happened when I was a teenager. I was staying with my cousin for several
weeks during the summer on the farm that my uncle owned. My cousin was
a couple of years older than me. One day we decided to camp out with some
of his friends. It was in the summer, so it was warm. We went out into
the georgia Pacific timber land not far from the my cousin's house. We
drove probably 5 to 6 miles back into heavily wooded terrain. We came to
a power line that was open and was a good place for camping. We did
not have any tents but had brought some diesel fuel for the fire.
We built a fire and and had plenty of wood to keep it going. We all stayed up as late as we could until we fell asleep by the fire. In the middle of the night around 1 or 2 am I woke up and the fire was low. it was then that I heard just off in the tree line something crashing and knocking on the trees. It was certainly not a deer or any animal we were used to. It sounded like some one or something was beating against trees and stomping and crashing around around back and forth. We thought it was was some one trying to scare us us, but after a while it was clear that no human could be making this much noise. I did not hear any growls but there was something there and it was pissed at us. we all jumped into the truck and left in a hurry.
of Witness: camping with friends
and a cousin
of Creature: Did not see anything
but heard something beating against trees and saw trees moving in the distance
from the fire light. I have heard that Sasquatch will travel on power lines
so it makes sense that it did not want us there.
(Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:
I did have one other experience there while hunting with my father and
uncle. I was in a tree stand there in the same area several years before.
It was near dawn and the light was just coming in. I was in a stand 10
to 12 feet off the ground. I was sleepy and was bored. Just then something,
don't know to this day what it was started shaking trees right behind the
stand. I could make out something on the brush but not clearly. It
shook several branches and then it was done. I was so scared I could not
move until my father came for me. I have never told anyone about either
