Sasquatch the Quest is no more. At least the website has disappeared. I don’t know if it’s moved or if it’s just down temporarily, but as of this moment Adrian Erickson’s website is unavailable.
A Joerg Hensiek posted the following comment on Robert Lindsay’s blog:
I just received a mail from Mrs. Erickson, wife of Adrian Erickson (Erickson Project). I do not want to quote from that mail, but here are two points from her answer that make me “desperate”. In those moments I ask myself: could it be that the Justin Smejas (no condemnation of this man!) of this world are the only ones who can solve the question, if BF really exists??! By killing one of our “wild forest brothers”?!!
Back to Mrs. Erickson`s mail. There are two points which seem to frustrate Adrian Erickson – and certainly frustrate me:
1. All of the “experts” backpedal when it comes to support the project – because of fear of ridicule by their “peers”;
2. there seems to be no progress and therefore Erickson considers closing down the website “Sasquatch – The Quest” until there is some sign of progress (which probably means: at the moment there is NO progress at all!!).
Mrs. Erickson did not tell what “experts” she means, and she did not mention the Ketchum DNA project or any other people and projects.
However: I find it frustrating that such a groundbreaking and probably admirable project comes to a standstill because there is no support from the “experts”…Where is Jeff Meldrum et al? And does Mrs. Erickson`s answer to me also mean that we have to wait MUCH longer for the results of the Ketchum study – and therefore for the broadcast/release of the documentary, too?
I know, lots of polemics and emotions. And perhaps we just have to wait a little bit more for Ketchum`s or Stubstad`s or Ed Smith`s papers (or who else is out there..). And I am sure by tomorrow I do not want to even think about the killing of a BF.
However, at a day like this and a message like this I muss confess : Perhaps one day we will be glad that once upon a time a certain Justin Smeja did go hunting in the Sierras of California – because all serious and ethical efforts seem to get undermined in the end by ignorance and/or cowardliness.
Given that the website is now gone, I would say that Mr. Henseik is a fairly reliable source.
