archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles

Night Triker

Well, with my last book finally complete, along with the continued early rains around the clock for days on end, I find myself in the following circumstances: 1) Riding my trike is not high on the “to do” list due to soggy ground and sky, and 2) Some free time has finally arrived at my doorstep. So, it seemed a fun project to create a little movie to imbue inner sensory delights in fellow trike-a-holics. Join me for a late October nocturnal adventure on three wheels:

  1. I was waiting for Sasquatch to come tramping through the forest Steve I mean every time I hear about some Californian going of into the woods at night they seem to run headlong into a Sasquatch…! LoL…!

    Hi Zack,

    I live in country where Sasquatch families heavily populate the mountainous wooded areas. Rumor has long held that the old species known as Huminoidus Elusivus thrives in the dark woods of the Cascade and Coast Ranges. At seven feet ten inches in height, and weighing in at a staggering 500-1000 pounds, there is a creature roaming the backcountry, which, if it wore shoes, would take a US size 27 if a fully mature male. Of course, this species is wild, thus clothing is not an option. Nor would it be necessary, because the Huminoidus Elusivus mammal is covered totally in thick fur. Imagine a gorilla, only considerably larger, and walking like a human being, rather than on all fours like a gorilla usually walks.

    This bipedal humanoid, sometimes referred to by the experts as a cryptic simian, is known by several more common names depending upon its Earthly location. In Australia, it is known as the Yowie in the Himalayas, the Yeti, in Mongolia, the Yeren, in Japan, the Hibagon. But where I sleep at night on my triking adventures, and in a tent mind you, the species is commonly called either Sasquatch or Bigfoot. In Canada and the United States, the “Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization” maintains all the up-to-date sighting information, and sponsors four-day expeditions for those who are interested in a possible sighting.

    It is thought that Bigfoot may be a modern-day descendant of this planet’s largest known ape, the prehistoric Gigantopithecus, which is an extinct species that existed between nine million to 100,000 years ago. The Gigantopithecus stood as high as ten feet, and weighed upwards of 1200 pounds, according to fossil records, but since no leg or pelvic bones have yet been discovered, it is uncertain whether the Gigantopithecus walked upright or on all fours like a modern gorilla.

    Bigfoot, as reported to currently exist here in the Pacific Northwest, is the ultimate creature of stealth, rarely being seen by humans. Science reports that for a species to be as widespread as postulated by Bigfoot enthusiasts, the population necessary for ongoing breeding would need to be sufficiently large as to make the sightings rather commonplace, as one might expect of bears or elk. Generally, due to the current reports that lack definitive proof, Bigfoot has been relegated to the status of folklore, or blatant hoax in some cases. There is no better way to meet some of these gentle giants than on a fatrike, so, off I go …
