Late January 2012 Edition
YES ANOTHER BLUFF CREEK MEGA-ISSUE
Well, the PROOF is in, now without the slightest doubt: The PGF Site has been completely verified. Find below a mathematical proof displaying the correspondence between our site map of the location as it is today, and the 1971 Rene Dahinden "aerial" shot. This proof adjusted camera angle and compared prominent lasting landmarks using trigonometry and geometry. It was done by a practicing geologist. The conclusion?:
"Overall the geometry of Robert Leiterman, Rowdy Kelley, and Steven Streufert’s survey is a perfect match with the photo taken by Rene Dahinden of the Patterson-Gimlin film site. It's nice to see some actual hard science being applied to the field. The survey was really well done. It made it fairly easy to get accurate numbers. Now all we need is the DNA project to prove these things are real. :-)"

Now, on to our main feature. As luck would have it, a fellow wandered into my bookstore one day. He lives in a very woodsy area down in the redwoods, and his wife works there, so he has developed some interest in Bigfoot topics. It just also happened that he was a qualified Geologist, capable of doing mathematical analyses of terrain and locations. I told him about our Bluff Creek PGF project, and he was fascinated. Herein we will use his pseudonym for his last name, for privacy.

Length(camera angle°/90°)=Measured length on photo
With this equation, an approximation of the camera angle is derived. Therefore, if the actual length of line ΔV is 12.8 and the measured length is 3.7 then the approximation of the camera angle is about 26 degrees. This camera angle can then be used to find objects seen in the photo and objects documented in the survey. If the monument’s actual position corresponds with the measured position on the photo then the survey location and the photo location are a match.

Bigfoot nerdiness started this PGF obsession, but
at least it came to something REAL in the end.
