Seeking Bigfoot info
Author Tom Morris has been studying Bigfoot for years. Morris asks hikers and hunters that if any incidents involving Bigfoot come up, to notify him on his landline at 925-930-8123; send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and put BIGFOOT in subject line; or send a report in to the Bigfoot Field Research Organization, www.bfro.net/GDB/submitfm.asp.
