Weird stuff in the Canadian Wilderness
an incident that could be on the X-Files
…or better yet, In Search Of, with Leonard Nimoy. Remember that one (1977 to 1982)?
I was 11 when that show came out; loved it. I think it was an early influence and perhaps helped me achieve full tin-foil-hattery later in life (i.e.- openness to uncomfortable/unpopular truths), though I’m not yet on board with the monsters stuff, recent sightings of Nephilim in Oregon notwithstanding.
One feature of BBR will be local stories from Bitterroot Valley residents. I’ll include this one when the Beacon is up and running. For now, just for my substack followers:
Back in fall of 2020, when I was here with my twin boys, my friend Tim says “I got a whopper of a story to tell you, and you are welcome to film it and put it up if you like.” The next day I grab the boys and we wind up the hill to Tim’s castle, a beautiful place like an Italian villa with a sweeping, 360 view of the valley. His wife makes us breakfast and then the boys set up the equipment and the interview begins.
Here’s the lowdown on the story, to help you decide if you want to watch the 37-minute video:
Tim’s working on a fishing boat in Canada in the mid 80s. They see a large plane go down in the darkness, emitting a flash as if it had crashed and exploded. Nothing appears in the news, which makes Tim extremely curious. Years pass, but Tim cannot forget the plane and apparent crash. He does a google maps search and scanning the area on satellite mode, WHOAH, WHAT IS THAT?! Now he has to get to the bottom of this, and goes on a quest to find that plane in the Canadian wilderness.
Tim Day’s strange story:
