Bob Gimlin and the Patterson Film
I met Bob Gimlin last week at the Ohio Bigfoot Conference. He was the last speaker at the conference, and talked about when he was with Roger Patterson when they saw a Bigfoot in Bluff Creek, California, in 1967. He said the film Roger took of the Bigfoot doesn't impress him at all, because he had a better view of it from where he was at. It rained the night after they saw it, and Bob got up at two thirty in the morning to go cover the tracks the creature had left so they could be preserved.
