Field Report 09.03.2012: Area P

SS120903.P028a

One of the uniquely interwoven, mat-like branch assemblies observed along the west trail at Area P; 3 September, 2012.  Curiously, many of the components appear to be of the same species.  Copyright © 2015 Sanjay R Singhal.  All rights reserved.

Substantiation of this Report is minimal at best; I do not know of any other persons conducting field work in this specific portion of the Manistee-Huron National Forest.[1] Nonetheless, a cursory review of published Reports, by other persons, suggests considerable activity in northern Michigan.[2] [3]

Further substantiation may be provided by my own field work at Area P, which also began in the autumn of 2012 and continued, at intervals, through the spring of 2014.

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The sound of branches breaking, heard over the motor;
  2. The sound of loud, bipaedal footsteps, ditto;
  3. The eerie stillness in the woods;
  4. The repeated sound of loud, bipaedal footsteps, on both sides of the access road;
  5. The loud, rattling noise on the southeast trail;
  6. The sounds of movement in the brush;
  7. The numerous, small branch assemblies observed in the southwest woods;
  8. The large, suspended-branch assembly on the west trail;
  9. The sounds of splashing in the river;
  10. The sounds of movement in the water, or swimming, ditto;
  11. The continued sounds of movement in the brush;
  12. The feeling of mild disorientation upon returning to the carpark;[4]
  13. The small branch assemblies observed at the trailhead.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experiences, may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC [5] at Area P, in the autumn of 2012.

A number of subjective events also occurred.[6] While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.

[4] Some mild disorientation is commonly reported pertinent to EC encounters, and may be considered, in context, a form of infra-sound manipulation as an intimidation behaviour. Don Peer.

[5] EC, in this context, stands for “Elder Children”, as usual.
