59 Years Ago Today...

The late Rene Dahinden began his Sasquatch interest and research. He was working for a dairy farmer in Alberta, Canada, when he and the the farmer and the farmer's family were listening to the CBC radio news. A report came on which said that the Daily Mail newspaper in London was sponsoring a search for the Yeti in the Himalayas. Rene turned to his boss and basically said, "Wouldn't it be something to go on a search like this?" His boss said, "Hell, you don't have to go that far, they got something like it over in British Columbia." Rene described his reaction as someone basically "turning a switch." That is what prompted him on his over four-decade search for the  Sasquatch. I salute Rene Dahinden today and always.
