FIELD REPORT 08.16.2015

To open the Report, simply double-click on the words “FIELD REPORT” above, and the PDF file will open for you; you may then download the file to your own computer, or read here, at your leisure.

Substantiation of this Report may be provided by my own field work at Illinois Beach State Park, which began in the summer of 2015[1] [2] and which has now continued, at somewhat irregular intervals; further investigations have been planned with Smith Jerrod, and others.

Further substantiation may be provided by published accounts on the BFRO website,[3] and others;[4] however, I am unaware of other persons conducting research and/or field investigations in this area of Illinois.

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

  1. The observation of the bright red shape, which quickly ducked down into the tall grasses;
  2. The second observation of same, ditto;
  3. The observation of numerous large, human-like footprints on the beach, arranged in long, straight lines;
  4. Ditto, presenting deeply impressed toes and heels;
  5. Ditto, presenting enormous stride lengths;
  6. Ditto, presenting a noticeable lack of turnout or straddle;
  7. Ditto, presenting mid-tarsal breaks.
  8. The rather large, wide print observed on the north side of the beach, with features as above;
  9. The enormous stride length of same, measured at eighty-seven inches and one half;
  10. The enormous step length of same, measured at forty-three inches and three quarters;
  11. The sudden, and curious disappearance of same in the driftwood.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experience(s), may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC[5] at Illinois Beach State Park, in the summer of 2015.

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.
