    “Peter Kagan and the Wind”. Seal people.

    Commander’s mind is closed for now but soon he will become a true believer.

    Who says that the paranormal is foolish?

    A “fool’s errand” perhaps, but just because you don’t believe in something, that doesn’t make it a fallacy.
    But was it Bigfoot in that famous photo, or just some guy in a Bigfoot costume?

    re: gary mcspook

    One of my favorite radio shows years ago had a forensic biologist from the center at Ashland. He was asked if anyone had sent him bigfoot hair samples. His one word reply was “polyester”.
    The same program years later had guys exploring in the “wilds” around Happy Camp for bigfoot. I once camped out for a month between Yreka and Happy Camp while waiting for an apartment to open up. Didn’t see anything weird except a 2lb Bufo borealis. Much of that area’s been logged and most of it has been burned over in 1987 or about five years ago when a massive thunderstorm starting around fresno ended in oregon, sparking 2000+ fires in California alone.
    If you take the “sound of bigfoot” and speed it up, it’s a bird chirping.

    My family was raised all through that area, and my parents retired about just south of Happy Camp. My grandparents lived in Hoopa Indian Reservation just south of that.
    There are huge parks and forest wilderness areas up there:
    Klamath National Forest 2500 sq miles
    Trinity Alps Wilderness Area 2100 sq miles
    6 Rivers National Forest 1500 sq miles
    Marble Mountain Wilderness Area 375 sq miles.
    The altitude is anywhere from sea level to 9000 ft.
    Pretty hard to say what might be wandering around up there. If you can’t find a significant percentage of the pot farms, how you gonna find a moving object like Bigfoot? (If he exists.)

    “2lb Bufo borealis.”
    Please forgive my ignorance re: Latin names.
    Is that a butterfly of some sort? If so, then 2 lbs would make it huge! If it’s a bird, that’s pretty big for most wild birds.

    Love the “fish chair” in the 1st panel, and the fish cut-out and some sort of gaff (?) design of the chair in panel 4.
    Your little details are always a delight.

    @Gary McSpook

    Bufor concerns a toad. So shining toad?
    The Cane Toad is 2-4 lbs and its skin is saturated with a hallucinogenic toxin. Running wild in the American South where it was foolishly introduced. The Cuban clawed toad is a mess in British Columbia along with the Cuban Green Roach.

    Having a shape-shifting non-human as an ally can increase the formidablility of the pirates.

    @Gary McSpook

    Thanks! I’m glad people are noticing that stuff. Yeah, that’s a gaff/rope design in that chair with a fish-shaped cut out. I love designing stuff like that.
