A restored blog posting from my original BigfootSightings.org website that crashed in 2007. I’m finally putting the original postings back online. This one is significant – it tells why I invited Tom Biscardi to Happy Camp – only 18 days after I started researching Bigfoot. A big mistake, maybe! But I really did learn a lot about Bigfoot research – for example – who to stay away from!
Last night one of the founders of the Great American Bigfoot Research Organization, Tom Biscardi, was a first-hour guest on Coast to Coast AM with host, George Noory.
Biscardi and his team of bigfoot researchers are currently on an expedition near Burney, CA (home of the beautiful Burney Falls State Park) – where they recently found footprints.
While looking around for more evidence Biscardi saw a bigfoot crouching on the side of the mountain.
He unfortunately was without his camera at the moment but threw a stick at it hoping for a reaction.
The creature’s only reaction was to run away.
Biscardi followed but was unable to keep up.
The Great American Bigfoot Research Organization is planning a museum near Fisherman’s Wharf in SF plus a traveling museum to be displayed near Bigfoot hotspots.
This morning I sent this email to them through their website:
“Hi, I live in the area of Happy Camp, CA where there have been two bigfoot sightings nearby in the last couple of years (plus many others in the past). We’re in the middle of the Klamath National Forest. I’m interested in starting a local business or organization aimed at having bigfoot expeditions in our area and have been following the information coming out on Coast to Coast AM, following up with research at your site and others. Please let me know how I can join your organization or help. I am a webdesigner and writer. By the way, this new site is wonderful. I will be linking to it on two of my weblogs which are at http://coast-to-coast-am.blogspot.com and http://www.bigfootsightings.org (this one is new). I know I can speak for most Happy Camp residents in saying we’d love to have your traveling museum and an expedition in our town.”
Here’s what I wrote on my old Coast to Coast AM blog:
Burney Bigfoot Encounter – Tom Biscardi
Tom Biscardi of the Great American Bigfoot Organization was on Coast to Coast AM tonight with George Noory – describing the recent bigfoot encounter he had in Burney.
He’s been in this business (bigfoot hunting) for over thirty years. He found footprints – then while looking for more evidence he noticed a creature hunched over, watching the crew. He threw his walking stick at the bigfoot.
He said he was ticked off because he didn’t have his gear with him – they didn’t expect to see anything in the location. He was about 130 yards away from it. This bigfoot had a stride of 64 inches.
Very exciting! This happened not far from where I live here in Northern California.
Biscardi said, “These creatures, they travel in breeding pools. Breeding pools meaning there’s males, females, and young ones.”
“Up in this area there’s subway caves – lava tubes.” The natives were afraid to go in because of huge hairy beasts.
He said he’s from the East Coast and when he came here he had to learn everything about tracking and eating off the land to prepare for his bigfoot expeditions.
Dennis from Kentucky called saying he went camping near Bryson, North Carolina. He woke up to a lot of noise, and heard a huge log crash against a tree, then he heard a howling. Another guy said he heard a freight train go through the campsite that night. They left and hiked more than 20 miles, and then the same thing happened. He said the howl wasn’t intimidating – it was more melancholy and sad.
Tom said this was a bigfoot telling him he’s entered their terrain.
George asked Tom if anyone has been attacked. Tom says two – one man was kidnapped and kept in a cave. He escaped and when he tried to bring in law enforcement they’d migrated away.
They are starting a bigfoot museum and hope to get more bigfoot evidence in the near future.
