(INTELLIHUB) — A man named Joseph claims he was on a hike and camp trip through the Big Cypress National Forest, where he encountered seven different Bigfoot-type creatures on his several-day trek.
The daring young man appeared on Episode 715 of Sasquatch Chronicles, where he told the story of what he says was the scariest situation he has ever faced in his entire life.
The encounter took place in mid-Summer of 2010 when the daring young man went on a 30-mile hike through the vast Florida wilderness known as “Alligator Alley.” Joseph says he went on the trip alone after his friends bowed out, saying he was “crazy” for wanting to go.
The adventurous 22-year-old then-athlete took limited supplies with him when he disembarked his journey, items he could carry in a backpack. Joseph admits it was a ballsy move to do the hike because cellular service is unavailable in the area. As a last resort, Joseph brought a marine VHF radio in case an emergency were to occur.
On night number one, Joseph set up his campsite by hanging his hammock between several trees. It had been a long day. Making his first mistake, the worn-out camper put his food bag in the tree near his hammock by where his head rested. Moments later, he fell asleep.
Later in the night, Joseph awoke to a “whoooooop” sound coming from the woods. The camper says some of the finer details have been lost from his memory over time but recalls that he felt something hit his hammock. Withal, he estimates four creatures surrounded him as he laid in the darkness in total fear.
“In the morning, my food bag was on the floor,” he explained on the show. “So I surmise that this thing hit my food bad and it had fallen.”
The next day on his way out of the swamp, Joseph saw several sets of large footprints in the mud, which got his wheels turning. There was a large stride between the bigger tracks. Much larger than Joseph’s stride. What could have made these tracks? he asked himself.
That evening, Joseph says he heard “another one of those whoop sounds” along with the sound of “something” coming through the woods. Thinking fast, the brave hiker started making noise so that whatever was about to emerge from the woods wouldn’t be startled by his presence.
Moments later, Joseph found himself twenty feet away from what he describes as a “giant thing” the size of a door with a head on it.
“It’s jet black,” he says. “And it’s right on the trail.”
“It’s got hair all over,” he says. “I see him float around the tree.”
The hiker says his experience is “hard to put into words” but says he “genuinely thought he was going to die.”
“I genuinely thought this thing was going to kill me,” he explained.
The man says he would fight at all costs but didn’t rule out suicide as an option to spare him from being ripped to shreds by the wild creature. However, the hiker got his composure together and decided to run the remaining 11-miles out of the wilderness on what can only be described as a journey through hell.
Joseph admits fear got the best of him, which prompted him to fire off a shot from a snub-nosed .38 caliber pistol his father gave him before the trip. He then grabbed his VHF radio from his pack only to find the battery was missing, which was unfathomable to Joseph, who diligently checked the battery installed on the radio before he left on the hike.
“At this point, I just sort of lost my head,” he said. “I lost my composure. “I guess you could say I was almost in a panic.”
Gathering his thoughts, the 22-year-old says he “ended up just shedding cloths” to stay cool on his cross-country run. Without hesitation, Joseph soon after shed his pack to push forward at a fast pace.
After running for what seemed like forever, Joseph says he finally made it to the trailhead at the Interstate 75 “Allegator Alley” rest stop, where he hysterically told authorities he had been chased by “monsters.”
Joseph said during the broadcast that “the truth is the truth,” claiming he is not lying.
