Bigfoot Discovery Museum Event - June 2nd

For all you Bay Area Bigfooters in California, here's a fun event that you won't want to miss.  While I'm not a supernatural investigator of any sort, I strongly support Mike Rugg and the Bigfoot Discovery Museum in Felton, CA.  Mike throws fun events, and lots of local investigators show up to network and share experiences.  I'm sure that the day will be fun and informative, and Mike's museum is a great resource for bigfooters in central California.

If you have the opportunity to visit the Museum in the beautiful redwoods near Santa Cruz, CA for this event, please be sure to tell Mike hello for me.

London Tracks Update

As most of you know, I'm currently on the road filming the next season of Finding Bigfoot.  The production schedule has us shooting between nine and fifteen hours a day, six days a week, leaving little time for much else.  However, in my precious free time, besides taking care of bills, emailing my family and friends, redesigning my website, doing laundry, and trying to remain somewhat sane, I have been chipping away at the staggering task of organizing the data surrounding the London Tracks from this past February.

One of many stills from the daytime video taken at the site.
This is not the track from below, but another from nearby.

While on my all-too-short break from filming, I managed to clean off all 72 casts, photograph them all from various angles, and produce an amusing teaser video entitled Sixty-four.  I watched several of the videos that were taken at the casting site and meticulously took stills of these videos to pair up with the casts.  I still need to watch the night time videos and do the same...

During this two-week breath of fresh air, many bigfooters dropped by to have a first hand look at the casts for themselves.  I filmed many of their comments to be included in a future DVD release in which these casts will be featured (among other bigfooty things).

As you can see, I have been far from idle.  I just wish I had more time.

Many of you have been emailing me asking about the tracks, and I appreciate both your curiosity about my progress, as well as your patience with me.  Since I'm on the road for more than another month, I thought I'd leak some photographs of what I've done so far, along with some rough plans for what I have in store.

Again, thank you for your patience with me.  Believe me when I say that I wish I could be working on the tracks every day.  They are among my highest priorities in bigfooting right now, but the truth is that I have to work.  (By the way, work is going great, and I expect the final product of Finding Bigfoot's season three to be both fun and bigfooty!)

Below are photographs of just one of the London Tracks.  Included will be a photo of it before casting, and several photos of the cast itself from various angles.  Close up photographs will be included when there is something interesting to feature.  The cast was photographed against a one-half inch grid background for scale.

Enjoy this sneak peek of things to come.

The thirtieth print left in the mud, which would
 later be the second consecutive cast of sixty-four.

Sixty-four

My blog has been pretty quiet lately, but I have not been idle.  There is a lot going on, and I have been very busy documenting the London Tracks.  Just cleaning and photographing them took over four days.  Now that I have assembled much of the necessary data and documentation, the analysis can begin.

Just to whet your appetite for what's to come, here is a short teaser I put together for your enjoyment.

Finding Bigfoot on the Colbert Report

Being on television is a great privilege, yet it brings great responsibility.  The cast of Finding Bigfoot is always at the ready for when duty calls, as it did last night on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report.  Stephen Colbert, a personified light of freedom in a world of dark ignorance, summoned us to help him in his hour of need.  Watch the clip below to find out how.
