Jim Myers has an extremely varied background. He grew up in Kenya, the son of Christian missionaries, and spent another 20 years as an adult living in West Africa and France. Jim and his wife Daphne both possess dual French-American citizenship. The Myers moved back to the U.S. in 2009, at which time Jim’s childhood obsession with Sasquatch became a vocation. For the past nine years, Jim has been an avid Sasquatch researcher and public speaker on all things related to the Forest People. He and his wife Daphne built the Sasquatch Outpost with the goal of becoming “Sasquatch Central” for the Western U.S. The Outpost houses both an extensive gift shop, as well as being the home of the Sasquatch Encounter Discovery Museum - built with the goal in mind of educating the public about the existence and behavior of these elusive beings. Far from being an “armchair expert” on this topic, Jim tries to spend as much time as possible in the forests and mountains of Colorado, where he has gained a great deal of experience and accumulated data over the years. Through his personal research, Jim has become convinced that far from being some form of great ape, Sasquatch is a highly intelligent being, possessing both a complex language and a true culture. Jim and his wife Daphne make their home in the town of Bailey, Colorado in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.
