My Next Vacation Spot? Base Camp Bigfoot!
Base Camp Bigfoot is a vacation retreat run by a man named Chris who won't divulge his last name. It's somewhere in the United States, but only a few know its precise location. And all visitors must sign confidentiality agreements promising never to speak about their experiences at the camp.
Why all the secrecy? Well according to this wonderfully kooky website, the woods around Base Camp Bigfoot are home to the legendary ape-man himself. Chris has been studying Bigfoot for over four decades, and he claims to have spotted the creature on countless occasions. He's so confident that visitors will also catch a glimpse of Bigfoot that he offers a money-back guarantee.
The camp does have a few rules, of course. Proper dress is always required. No guns are allowed. And "cussing" won't be tolerated--because Bigfoot doesn't like it.
Unfortunately, Base Camp Bigfoot is fully booked until the Winter of 2008. (Supposedly it's a favorite with celebrities.) How will I be able to wait that long?
