The London Trackway - Track #79

Though only three toes are clearly evident in this cast (the fourth digit is there, but barely), the striations seem to indicate independent toe movement.  Like many of the other London Tracks, this one's subtleties make it beautiful.

The London Trackway - Track #37

With lots of plaster overflow, this cast shows details of the substrate the prints were left in.  Cracks, moss, and even snail shells are evident both inside and outside of the print itself.  Four toes are clearly visible, and the foot impressed to varying depths.

HopsSquatch, August 25th

The August HopsSquatch should prove to be most interesting.  Doug Meacham, a certified and registered hypnotist, has been working with a bigfoot witness to help him recall more vivid details of his two bigfoot enounters.

I have come to know this witness personally, and can now call him a friend.  He is undoubtedly telling the truth, and his encounters were up close and personal.  This will be an excellent event that should be full of insights and information.

Historical Newspaper Article Explains "Bigfoot" in 1958

Shortly on the heels of Jerry Crew's footprint casting in October, 1958, a Seattle, WA man came forth to explain the large footprints found hundreds of miles to the south.  The man, Al Corbett, claims that in around 1930, he was aware of a "mentally deficient" Indian youth that was kept chained up by his parents until he eventually broke free of his bonds and ran off.  (I guess this was before Child Protective Services existed!)

This article was put on the AP news wires and circulated widely at the time.  This particular version comes from the Fresno Bee, and is dated October 8, 1958, just four days after the original newspaper article featuring Jerry Crew and the bigfoot cast.

There have always been ridiculous explanations for sasquatches.  Until a wider acceptance of the species spreads, there will continue to be strange, illogical explanations for a perfectly normal species of North American mammal.  This one is particularly interesting as it seems to be in response to the Jerry Crew footprint find.

London Trackway - Track #48

London Trackway #48

This partial cast, though incompletely showing the length of the foot, has three deeply impressed digits.  While the middle of the foot nor the heel impressed into the substrate, in the daytime photograph of the footprint one can see where those parts came in contact with the substrate by the debris they left behind.

London Trackway #55

London Track #55
Track 55 of the London Trackway has now been added to the database.  Not all the casts are glamorous, and this humble example serves as another (big)foot forward towards completion of the entire London data set.
