Substantiation of this Report is minimal at best; I do not know of any other persons conducting field work in this specific portion of northern Michigan. Some corroboration, however, may be provided by my own field work at Area F, which began in earnest in the autumn of 2012[1] and which has continued through 2013[2] [3] and into 2014.

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

  1. The possible modifications to the large, slanted-branch assemblies along the cycling path;
  2. The tall, twisted-off sapling opposite same;
  3. The eerie quiet and stillness in the woods;
  4. The sound of loud, heavy coughing heard in the woods;
  5. The possible observation of a dark-brown shadow, moving between the trees;
  6. The strange, shuffling noise of something shifting its weight from one foot to the other;
  7. The extant, beautifully crafted branch assembly at the Paperbark Maple;
  8. The new, elegantly simple branch assemblies observed nearby;
  9. The two new, smaller tipi-like assemblies observed near the larger tipi assembly;
  10. The possible alignments of same, oriented to the northwest;
  11. The possible large, deeply impressed footprint observed on the path.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experiences, may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC [4] at Area F, in the spring of 2014.

A number of subjective events also occurred. 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] EC, in this context, stands for “Elder Children”, as usual.
