Some time ago in the green forests of the Blue Ridge Mountain a tiny abandoned squirrel was discovered by a family of sasquatches (aka: bigfoot). Raised by nomadic bigfoot they were always on the move, exploring new wild places.
As Sasquatch grew, the other squirrels wondered why he was such a brave explorer and they soon found out about his bigfooted upbringing. A squirrel raised by a family of bigfoot??!! Who ever heard of such a thing!? The other squirrels called him names, like: "Sasquatch!!" But he didn't know his real name and he kind of liked the sound of that. He had discovered his true name!
Because squirrels are so small it is hard to travel long distances - but Sasquatch was used to riding on the shoulders of his bigfoot family. When he was old enough to be out on his own he longed to reclaim his days of exploring - and so he started finding different ways to travel. Trains were too noisy, airplanes were out of the question, regular cars didn't travel very far - but then he discovered the world of overlanding!
