Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
Two friends and I went to a scenic overlook spot called Picnic Point in the Shawnee National Forest Vern Riffe CCC camp near Portsmouth, Ohio at about 12:30am. From this point you have a nice view of the city of Portsmouth, lit up in the distance.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
As we got out of the car at Picnic Point, my friend Jennifer heard a rustling sound coming from the tree line. As we were standing there in the darkness, we heard a strange chirping sound. I did not recognize the chirping sound as it did not sound like any night bird call that I'd ever heard. I had a very uncomfortable feeling that we were being watched. After hearing this sound for approximately two minutes, I became unnerved, and got back into the car. My friends followed suit, and we proceeded to drive back out.
Describe the time of year and the environment
Late Spring, overcast, very wet area as it has rained for several consecutive days and the ground is saturated. This was a parking area on one of the highest points in the county. This area is part of the Vern Riffe CCC camp. It is a heavily wooded area, and it was very foggy.
Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
I have checked the web and have found that others in this area have claimed to have had Bigfoot Sighting.
Additional comments
My friend John, who was with us, said that he had heard that sound before. As soon as we got back to my friend Jennifer's apartment, John looked up Bigfoot on the web, and downloaded a recording of a supposed Bigfoot. The sound was almost identical to what we heard in the Shawnee Forest. We estimate that the sound came from within 50 yards of where we were parked.
