We like to give our Skunk Ape expeditions names. This one was at the Wasburn area in the rain and we did launch the Aztec Snake gallons with the video camera. The problem was it did not fly very well. We will need bigger balloons next time. The plan was to usr a 150 foot tether to view above the tree lines.
The key to this Youtube video is the athletic movements of the creature. It is not a man in a suit. It is not BoBo. Without the video its a class A sighting of an animal people have been seeing for centuries. Again, the speed of movement is the key. Was it feeding on something when they walked up on it? It is not human.
I need to go back and see if the serial number is still on those tires. In the 1920's central Florida was home to lots of logging camps that harvested the giant cypress trees (as large as redwoods). This crime against nature happened in very isolated areas. I wonder if there were any Skunk Ape encounters.
The pemier episode of Florida Bigfoot Investigators aired last night on Tampa Bay Great 38 and it was a hit. The TV station has ordered 13 more episodes which should keep Kevin and the gang very busy. Central Florida saw a quality Bigfoot show that was about research and investigation. It was about a team of researchers that go into the Green Swamp in the middle of the night using thermal imaging under mostly "lights out" conditions. I thought the show was great and I was honored to be part of it.
When Kevin contacted me in 2011 about this project, I knew it would require long term dedication. We did the work, and now we can see the results. I am very proud of Kevin, George, Mike, Rob, and Terri. They have done an excellent job. Spike TV did not want us but if you want something done right, do it yourself.
Below are three videos outtakes of the show giving you a flavor of what was went down.
Teri stayed back at camp and radioed that she heard a strange sound. First, it sounded like metal. Then, I heard something crashing in the distance. Kevin, thought it may be a passing train in the distance, near Dade City. After looking at everything, I believe what we where hearing were Sasquatches moving through the forest. They do move things out of their way and I thought I heard a tree collapse. We have worked this area before and we have heard similar things.
We have found trees on the ground many times. Most Bigfoot researchers have noted such things. I believe they keep their distance and totally know how to avoid us just walking up on them. However, they are not perfect. Any animal can, and will, make a mistake. That is how people have been able to get fleeting glimpse images of them. This work is hard and very time consuming but it must be done.
