Today I received a comment on my post on Nahuelito which I thank, and copy below:
In Lago Wynter South of Esquel some soldiers were crossing the lake and they just disappeared but their boat was found cut in half by some enormous animal. Here in Australia Rex Gilroy has written a book in which he talks about people disappearing off boats in the Hawkesbury River North of Sydney. He says that the men that paint the bridge have seen plesiosauruses in the river from the bridge. I knew Hilda and Bill Rumboll very well and I lived in Bariloche during 9 years. I never saw Nahuelito but I must say around the Huemul area there were very strange energies.
The comment about lake Vintter is interesting, I have posted about it before, but I have not been able to find any
references about this incident involving soldiers. If anyone has more details (i.e. year it happened or if it was in Argentina or Chile -lake is called Palena over there), I would appreciate it.
Regarding Bariloche, yes, it is a great place and Huemul arm of the Nahuel Huapi Lake is quite impressive: sheer faces on its southern side, deep windy waters and high towering mountains to the north. We go there to fish in summer (not very lucky though) a photograph is shown below (taken in Feb.2008, Paso Coihue, where Nahuelito was seen ca. 1910, can be seen in the middle of the photograph, at the end of the Huemul arm and Huemul Peninsula is on the right side of the image):
See the following map of Lake Nahuel Huapi which shows Coihue Pass and Huemul Arm.
Thank you for commenting my posts and giving me new ideas for future research!
If any of my readers has more information on the Vintter incident, please mail me or comment below. Thanks!
