November 15th: Dr. Matthew Johnson Talks Bigfoot Portals

Artist Interpretation of Bigfoot Portal with Bigfoot and Dr.J in Front

John [Carlson] and Adam [Davies] accidentally triggered and opened up a portal. Out of the portal came about 3 foot tall, two of them, guardians of the portal." --Dr. Matthew Johnson;

Don't miss the most controversial HopsSquatch yet! Dr. Matthew Johnson has two successful habituation areas, and he claims one of them has opening and closing portals. He is also on record suggesting that Sasquatch have cloaking abilities. 

DATE: Sunday, November 15th
TIME: 12:30-3:00
WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Dr. Matthew Johnson


His history goas back to the year 2000 and Guy Edwards from Bigfoot Lunch Club categorizes his history ion three phases. 

PHASE 1: The Encounter | July 2000Dr. Matthew Johnson's Bigfoot history begins at Oregon Caves National Park in Southern Oregon on July 1st 2000. You can read his a detailed BFRO report of his encounter. Here's the very short version. After exiting a cave, Dr. Johnson was with his family when he was alerted by a foul smell and loud vocalizations. After walking away from his family to take care of "business" he scanned downhill towards them and saw a Bigfoot. If you have ever heard Dr. Johnson recall this story in person, he gets very emotional at this point. This is the point where he expresses his concern for his family's safety.
The encounter was huge bigfoot news for the mainstream media and went viral, probably because of the embedded irony that Dr. Matthew Johnson was a psychologist telling a story that sounds nuts to the general public. He went on to do several national media interviews and kept to this non-paranormal version.

PHASE 2: 2011 Cloaking Revealed | June 2011Fast-forward to 11 years later when Dr. Johnson had a conversation with only four people present. The conversation would be a milestone in the retelling of the Oregon Cave encounter.
Dr. Johnson was a guest speaker at Toby Johnson's (no relation) Sasquatch Symposium. Paranormal researcher Thom Powell was also in attendance as another guest speaker. A conversation between the two of them would reveal a huge detail missing from Dr. Johnson's retelling of his Oregon Cave encounter. The missing detail? The Bigfoot in Matthew Johnson's encounter had the ability to cloak.

PHASE 3: The Portal | June 2014After years of keeping his Southern Oregon Habituation Area (SOHA) to himself, Dr. Matthew Johnson began to invite hand-picked researchers to his bigfoot habituation site. In June of 2014, Adam Davies and John Carlson were among the exclusive researchers allowed to camp at SOHA and what they encountered still defies explanation, although Dr. Matthew Johnson tried at his conference. At the conference Dr. Johnson talked about visible portals to other dimensions and half-sized bigfoots with glowing eyes.

OCTOBER 18th! Author Thom Powell and the Edges of Science

Everything is connected to Bigfoot, Thom Powell explains how

“I understand that I’m working on the fringe, if not outside the boundaries, of science. Science in its purest form not only tolerates exploring the frontier, but also requires it, invites it.” --Thom Powell; Author

The above quote is from a recent Portland Tribune article titled "Exploring the Edges of Science". Recognized and respected by most as a middle school science teacher, he has continued to lead the Bigfoot community into the fringe, pushing the envelope and shaping how we think about Bigfoot research.

Thom continues to be in high demand as a speaker for Bigfoot conferences, lately he has added the UFO-types to his audience. Thom is the perfect ambassador for these two world and world we may not be familiar with. Come to the NW Lucky Lab on October 18th and brings a new paradigm to Bigfoot.

Bigfoot research groups come and go. They are usually dissolve for several reasons and rarely are the lead by the same individuals that initially founded them. Some splinter and others just dissolve slowly. In the end, instead of getting a record of research you get a record of squabbling and rumors. I'm very pleased to announce is that HopsSquatch will be hosting a research group that has overcome all those issues; The Tillamook Forest Research group. 

Even better, Gunnar Monson promises to bring some interesting audio evidence to hopsSquatch. Reserve your ticket now and get the first chance to hear some evidence with full context.

Best Bigfoot Audio! Ron Morehead Speaks at HopsSquatch

Ron Morehead speaks at HopsSquatch Aug 16th
DATE: Sunday, August 16th 
TIME: 12:30-3:00
WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Ron Morehead of the Sierra Bigfoot Sounds

How did Ron Morehead get Sasquatch to come into his camp night after night and record their sounds and language? Ron reveals all (except the location) of his phenomenal recordings.

These are absolutely the best, hands down, Bigfoot sounds! Why? These are the only sounds that:

Ron Morehead is an ‘adventurist’; a positive ‘someone’ who loves life, but often lives it on the edge. As a SCUBA diver, he swam with the hammerhead sharks, has been filmed in Mexico’s Pacific Ocean riding the backs of giant manta rays, and been a safety diver for the filming of Right whales in Patagonia.

As a private pilot, Ron has flown his own aircraft from the Alaskan bush to the Costa Rican jungle. Besides travelling to the ancient Mayan civilizations in the Yucatan, he has also flown into a remote jungle area of Chiapas (Southern Mexico) on an anonymous Mayan discovery expedition. What he saw was thought to be one of the last remaining strong-holds of the Mayan people. He has ventured into Western Nepal’s Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve to help assess the tiger population, explored the jungles of Bardiya on elephants, and been in the wilderness of Siberia looking for evidence of the Russian Yeti. He has made two trips in South America exploring the enigmatic structures and the non-human remains of the pre-Inca people.

Over the years Ron has been interviewed by several radio programs and has been televised by the BBC and other learning channels. He was a guest speaker at the Darwin Museum in Moscow (Russia) and for years he has given presentations at symposiums and conferences about his Bigfoot/Sasquatch experiences. He has openly shared his knowledge and accounts with others. His book, “Voices in the Wilderness,” chronicles his 40 years of researching the enigma. Besides his book, he has produced two CDs with actual Bigfoot vocalizations, focusing on the interaction he and others had with these forest giants.

How does a Bigfoot encounter change your brain? A cognitive approach.

“Perception, Memory and Recall in Bigfoot/Sasquatch encounters; a Cognitive Approach”
PRESENTATION: Perception, Memory and Recall in Bigfoot/Sasquatch encounters; a Cognitive Approach: 

DATE: Sunday, June 21st
TIME: 12:30-3:00
WHERE: NW Quimby Lucky Lab  | 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
WHO: Michael Zenner

On June 21st we will learn what happens to your brain during a Bigfoot encounter. In this presentation, we will explore the cognitive mechanisms by which we as human beings perceive, record, and recall experiences.  We will also talk about how these processes can be affected by the stresses involved in an encounter with a large or unknown animal such as a bigfoot/sasquatch.
We will explore some of the perceptual illusions that may potentially cause erroneous reports, as well as some of the possible ways an interviewer can extract the maximum amount of accurate information from a witness.

Michael Zenner has been a bigfoot enthusiast for nearly forty years, and has spent the vast majority of that time living in the state of Oregon.  He has earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cognitive Science from Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass, and has completed two years of graduate study in Cognitive Psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Michael is interested in all aspects of the bigfoot/sasquatch question, with a special emphasis on history and lore, and the significant locations therein.  He curently lives in Portland with his wife and daughter, who is his favorite co-investigator.
