Bigfoot loves to push camper tops around, or at least that is the case on a rural plot of land just north of Heber, Arizona. The piece of property was purchased back in 2008 and was to be the escape from the pressures of city life—an artist’s retreat. This was to be a place of refuge where the meaning of life could be contemplated without the interruptions of modern man.
In this very remote area treed with Junipers and covered with knee high grass, many animals abound. There are deer, elk, antelope, and tons of rabbits. Other creatures included porcupines, coyotes, wolves (introduced Grey Wolves), and bobcats. There is no commercial power; water is hauled in from a water co-op by the owners of the land. The nearest neighbor was a good 200 yards away. After that the next humans were a good quarter mile away.
The owner of the property decided to plant some apple trees, which meant a water tower had to be installed which would have to be refilled once a month. Once this project was operational, the next item was a place to stay. A camper was brought in to the property and set on a foundation of wooden pallets. This was not an easy feat, because the camper was very heavy and bulky. Empty, the camper weighed nearly 700 pounds, but it would be a very nice place to sleep during the monthly visits.
A month later, the owner returned to fill the tanks. To his surprise, he found the camper rolled over and sitting upside down. At first, he thought it might be vandals, but the windows were unbroken, and the tools left behind were still there and untouched. Perhaps, it was the wind? It took a pickup truck and an electric winch to right the camper and place it back on the pallets.
The next month was uneventful. However, the following month the camper was found on its top once again. The owner was not happy and wanted some answers. After placing the camper back on the pallets, some 4x6 boards were nailed to the camper creating supporting legs. A game camera was placed on the water tower looking down at the camper. The next order of business was to fill the water tanks. After going down the road to the well, the owner and friend returned. The camera had taken a picture, and nest to the newly installed support legs were several large human-like footprints.
The camper was OK until Yesterday (1 December, 2013). It was discovered sitting off the pallets still upright, but the legs were pushed out of the way. No footprints this time, but the camper has been un attended for several months.
Could Bigfoot have been looking for rabbits under the camper?
