Have been a Fortean since before I quite knew what a "Fortean" was. I became interested in UFOs, Bigfoot, sea serpents, and so forth very young. The movies in the sci-fi and horror genres (pre-gore, note!) helped, I suppose, but I had my first UFO sighting quite young, and was able to see it descend ina a heavilly-wooded area near where we lived then (a national forest, lots of places to come down w/o being seen, especially then). Saw a dis in broad daylight later, and another cone-shaped object a few years later. I loved the original Nimoy In Search Of... TV series, also. Who ever wants to talk, let me know. I'm feeling my way around, so ask that people be patient with me until I learn more of how the Foorum works.
