We are having record cold temperatures in Florida. I had planned for this expedition when it was in the 80's and very humid - Not now! This campfire was on the second night of my skunk ape expedition and I was relaxing and realizing what a success the outing had been. I could not wait to get home and put the videos on the computer and see what I had.

This was the first sighting that I have had that included movement. The one I had in October of 2009 was only a still which I call the Fasano photo. This video was shot during a two day, two night skunk ape expedition in Central Florida on December 7-8 2010. Two years of Bigfoot research is paying off.

He called me Wednesday and invited me on his show. I take up offers for radio shows, so this is not something new to me. It so happens his show is live when I will be on a night operations so I will call in from the field and give a report.
Tom told me he would send me two movies he produced about Bigfoot. They showed up two days later by priority mail. He kept his word, and followed through on that. He earned my respect.
We talked at length about migratory habits and his vegetation water theory. That is why so many are being seen on the East coast now. They never could consider that their footprints are giving them away. Tom gave me six specific things to look for when I am on the expedition next week. I bet I find at least half of what he is looking for.
I thought he was cool as shit and it seemed like I had known him for years. He is Italian from New York like my parents. He even knew where the street in Brooklyn was at that my mother was raised on. His producer called me today and will call back over the weekend with specifics about the show and live broadcast. These guys are very organized and I am looking forward to working with them. I do not believe the lies that the con men like Moneymaker have to say about him. He has hundreds of people all over the country that have come to know him and love him. This man is really misunderstood. Gee...I can relate to that!

The search area selected was near a wild river and swamp land. The State of Florida owns the land and you must have a permit to camp in the primitive camp area. My tent was a close to the tree line as I could get it. I snore heavy and wanted to see what came over to investigate. There were a few other campers who brought their horses with them. I have never seen a horse roll over on its back and play like a cat. The one in the photo did.
On of the things that I have always liked about campers is they are always friendly and co-operative. The people that were out here offered me firewood and advice. I even had the chance to 'horse sit' while Mike and his wife went up to the supermarket. I have not spent much time around horses but they seemed rather domesticated.
I don't have much experience at this, so I thought that maybe getting the fire going so that when I came back from the night expedition there would be light and heat and I could throw more wood on it. I was hoping to load many videos and post them on YouTube while I was doing this but the mechanics of setting up camp, charging gear, and so forth, was more then I thought it would be. It was fun but there is a lot of work in camping. I was glad to just sit around the fire and relax. I had some good wood this year. The Pioneer fire wood that is commercially sold in supermarkets is great. It is seasoned and ready to burn and put off a nice glow.
I needed that fire because when the sun went down it got cold. You can seem my breath in this image below. I am sure that with the fog that was rolling in and being down by the river had much to do with the temperature change. My 1,000,000 candle power light gave out and I had to return to camp. I did not get a sighting but much was heard and recored on the many videos taken.

After I returned to camp, I sat around and meditated on what I had found and how I would approach future expeditions. I am still learning the logistics of this and the future is looking bright.
