Geoff Gimlin was born on the 16th April 1974, he was born in Willow Creek California. He was raised from the age of 2 by his uncle Bob Gimlin, Geoff’s parents died when he was very young.
Geoff never liked school as a kid, he preferred to spend his time in the outdoors, exploring or hunting. He was taught how to use a rifle from a young age and became a good shot, he and his uncle would go hunting almost every other weekend.
Geoff’s uncle Bob, although a nice man was a big name in the sasquatch or bigfoot community, He and his friend Roger claimed to have filmed a sasquatch in 1967. Through out Geoff’s childhood, he had to put up with the ridicule of his class mates, claiming that his uncle faked the footage. As Geoff got older his faith in his uncle’s film got smaller and smaller. This was all due to change on the 9th of May 1993.
Following up to the 9th, Geoff had been planning to go on a weekend long hunt. Geoff had hiked in to the Six rivers national forest and set up his camp with the hope of moving further into the forest the next day. It was about 10 o clock at night when Geoff first heard a blood curdling scream off in the distance and over the next hour 4 small sized rocks were thrown into his camp. Geoff believing, he was being pranked by some fellow hunters decided to turn in for the night. He awoke in his tent at 5 in the morning and started to reignite his fire when he heard some movement in the treeline ahead, when he looked up, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Just on the edge of the treeline was an 8ft tall male sasquatch. Geoff went to reach for his rifle when the creature took off, it ran back into the trees and up the hill behind where it was stood.
Geoff now realising that these creatures were real, made it his mission in life to track these creatures down and kill one the prove to the world what he had seen.
Geoff travelled the world to places like the Himalayas and Australia in order the try and find the local version of the sasquatch. Geoff was in Russia looking for their version of the creature when he heard reports of sightings in Chernarus. He crossed into Chernarus in hopes of finding a creature. Geoff had ben in chernarus for a few years prior to the outbreak, moving from village to village in hope of talking with the locals about the creature. When the outbreak hit Geoff stayed in the woods, keeping his distance from local settlements in order to survive.
Geoff still roams Chernarus to this day, still hoping to find proof of these creatures.
