Friday, Oct 11;  7:30 – 11:00 pm

6:45pm : Board Bus at VFW Hall parking lot, 240 Chrysler Road, Oscoda

The all-new alternative experience to the Bash’s physically-challenging, rigorous Night Hike adventure!  Aboard the Bigfoot Bash Express, people of all ages and physical abilities will enjoy a variety of strategically located bus stops in and around the countryside and Huron National Forest designed to coincide with documented area Bigfoot encounters.  Squatchers will exit the bus to a live story-teller recounting true brushes with Bigfoot, all collected from area residents who lived them. Take in the inky darkness of expansive farm fields, smell the heady pines of the Huron National Forest and see first-hand just how close Bigfoot comes to civilization! Between stops, a local historian will share background on the region’s Native American first-residents, its fur-trading French voyageurs and the logging industry, which continues today. We end the night in the pitch darkness of a primitive camp site inside the Huron National Forest where the final Bigfoot encounters will be told around the orange glow of a warm, crackling fire. We’ll enjoy S’mores and hot chocolate, before climbing back into the bus, and returning you to your cars.   

Please dress in layers for the weather and bring a bag chair to sit on. If it’s raining, bring an umbrella. We make the trip – rain or moon – Bigfoot does!

Note:  Participants must be able to board the bus as it is NOT handicap accessible.
