April 2010

I was driving along Route 6 crossing the CT state line into RI. The road is very dark and heavily wooded in this particular area. As I was traveling east, something quickly moved across the road in front of me. I was driving approximately 55 mph. Once I registered what I was seeing I also realized that whatever it was, it had walked on two legs. It cleared the guardrail on the side of the road in one step and was gone. I was very spooked. The whole incident lasted less than 30 seconds, though I think about it often., especially when I drive through that area.

My brother lives in that area off of Enfield around the pond. Up a few streets. Oct 1 of 2017, my beother had an outdoor wedding. Around 930/10pm there were 4 of us sitting around talking about the day. And someone shushed and asked ‘what was that?’ At that same time i felt the ground lightly vibrating as if somwthing heavy was walking nearby. We could hear sticks breaking And leaves crunching. His property is surrounded by thick woods. We all thought it might be a bear so my brother asked if he should retrieve his hunting rifle. We could hear the steps coming closer to the fire pit we had going. Yet it was still maybe 1/4 of a football field away.

I noticed how fast it was traveling and it felt huge by measure of the vibrations. The bride said “screw that” and ran into the house. After it got silent i decided to call it a night as all the hair on my body stood up. We quickly disbursed to our cars and left. Later on i was looking online to see if there were any bigfoot reports because i thought it but didnt want to say it incase anyone would laugh and i saw your report which is close to his house. I told him about it and he said he was thinking what i was thinking. That it was large and felt like the steps were bipedal.
