In Part 2 Eric Altman, Veteran Sasquatch Investigator and Conference Organiser, talks about the Great 1973 Bigfoot – UFO Wave in Pennsylvania. There were a great many Sasquatch reports in Pennslyvania in the Autumn of 1973 but some of those reports also included the presence of Alien Craft in the same time and place as the Sasquatch sightings.

Eric also talks about disturbing trends he says in Bigfoot Research. Eric is an “Old School” investigator who believes it is critically important for anyone wanting to do serious field work, to first immerse themselves in a comprehensive study of the subject. This means reading books from the great investigators and researchers from the past and not relying solely on the Internet for their research.
