Johnny Manson Recalls First Trip To SOHA

In December of 2013, Johnny Manson traveled to SOHA (Southern Oregon Habituation Area) with Dr. Matthew Johnson. The 5 or so days alone on top of a mountain at a location that had not yet been exposed, was a remarkable experience.

During this experience, on the first night, Johnny kept hearing a young “female” being whispering to others who would reply. Here is the audio captured in 22 degree weather at approx. 3AM on night 1.


You will hear two snores (Dr J), right after the 2nd, you will hear her. She was at the foot of my cot when they said this.

Here is a tree push that occured during that first night. The recording is from a parabolic mic which records far distances.


This sounded much louder laying in the cot. It was hard not to panic. But you may have to turn it up loud to heat it fall. I believe the first thing you hear is a knock, then the tree fall in the background.

Regardless of what you take away from this, it’s different when it happens to you. It’s so easy to say what you would do when you aren’t in the situation.
