StuckatTheAirport.com is a big fan of airport mascots. And Redmond Municipal Airport now has a really big one.
Central Oregon is prime Bigfoot (or Sasquatch)-hunting country. And the newest resident at Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) gives everyone a good look at the ever-elusive creature that tourists hope someday to see.
More than 6-feet tall, this Sasquatch creature toting a pink suitcase arrived at RDM just last week and he/she/it will remain in the terminal for the foreseeable future.
Because, really, who is going to tell a creature that looks like that to move along?
RDM hopes visitors will take selfies with the newly-arrived Sasquatch. And they also hope travelers will post those selfies to the airport’s Facebook page and/or share their photos via Twitter and Instagram with the hashtags #RDMYeti, #centraloregonsasquatch or #FLYRDM.
And for those who would like to take home a Bigfoot souvenir beyond a photo, the two airport gift shops have plenty of great options.
Here are snaps of some of our favorite Bigfoot gifts. Beyond t-shirts and a great Sasquatch bottle opener, the options include a great addition to our growing collection of airport chocolate ‘poop’ souvenirs.
Please be on the alert for a great statue, mascot or souvenir at any airport you pass through. If you see something that’s fun and very local, please snap a photo and send it along. If your photo is featured on our Souvenir Sunday feature, we’ll send you a cool travel-themed souvenir.
