Al Berry was an investigative reporter asked to visit the remote high Sierra camp and wrote his story, which Ron produced on CD in 1996, "The Bigfoot Recordings, Volume I." The 40 minute CD is narrated by Jonathan Frakes, of “Star Trek, The Next Generation.” In 2003, Ron introduced his story on CD, “The Bigfoot Recordings, Volume II."
The initial encounters began at the Sierra camp in 1971 and many subsequent events occurred in the years to follow. Most all Bigfoot reports of sounds or encounters are either a yell or a brief glimpse, hardly ever a series of events, especially with a communicative type effort on the part of these creatures. In 1978 the vocalizations were the subject of a year-long study by Dr. R. Lynn Kirlin, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Wyoming. His analysis was presented in a symposium in Vancouver, B.C., “Anthropology of the Unknown.”
A more recent year-long study was launched in 2008 by a Crypto-Linguist. Retired from Naval Intelligence, trained to crack codes, and currently teaching foreign languages, Scott Nelson deciphered a complex language in the Sierra Recordings.
Carl L. Johnson ... has been researching unorthodox subjects and investigating reports of unexplained activity for the past three decades, commencing when he was invited to join a research team under the auspices of Rhode Island College, and in association with various colleagues such as the renowned ghost hunting couple Ed and Lorraine Warren. Specializing as a Demonologist, Carl was a member of The Atlantic Paranormal Society for eight years and appeared on the first two seasons of the popular SyFy Channel series Ghost Hunters. Carl is featured on the Animal Planet series, The Haunted, also The Travel Channel's documentary, Most Terrifying Places in America. His interests are directed towards origins of arcane lore.

Dina M. Palazini ... can be described as empathic and intuitive, plus she is training in demonology. Since early childhood, she has demonstrated an ability to experience the emotional state of others, human beings and animals, and to detect disembodied presences. Dina conducts an ongoing research with Beyond The Veil Paranormal, the investigating team which she founded in 2009. Dina has participated in television productions including the Animal Planet series, The Haunted, and Travel Channel's Most Terrifying Places in America. You may contact Dina either at her e-mail address, email@example.com or through her Web site, Beyond The Veil Paranormal
In August of 2009, Carl Johnson and Dina Palazini began actively researching evidence and reported sightings of and physical evidence for the presence of a Sasquatch-type cryptid roaming within the borders of the state of Rhode Island. This study was inspired by Dina's personal experience of two decades prior: an encounter with the creature which she vividly recalls. In April, 2010 Carl and Dina founded Big Rhodey Research Society as a networking forum to more effectively continue their exploration of the enigma now for reference classified by Carl as Hominem Hylocomium Tenebrosus and the title of "Big Rhodey" derived from Rhode Island's nickname, "Little Rhody."
