Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
This particular siting occured in mid-Summer of 1975. We were 14 and 15 years old at the time. Mynfriends and I often camped out during the Summer months, usually in open fields or down along thenOlentangy River. We've heard many stories of Bigfoot sitings over the years, with increased regularity.nWe decided on this evening to camp close to the river and do a little midnight exploring and see whatnkind of trouble we could get into.

Describe the time of year and the environment

Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
There were reports of odd noises down there for many years, and maybe another year after we had ournsighting. One of my friends lived in a farm down that way; his dad sometimes worked a shift thatnbrought him home very early in the morning. He said on more than one occasion he would pull in andnsee something large and not a person stalking around their barn and he would wait in the car until itnwalked into the woods.
Additional comments
After we went back to retrieve our camping gear (during the day), we went back to the river and foundnlarge tracks. They must have been at least 11-12 inches long.
