Welcome to TheFORKCHOP.com, my OFFICIAL presence on the ole' World Wide Web. For some of you that don't recognize my name - WHY THE HELL ARE YOU HERE? Haha. Just kidding. Thanks for stopping by. Those of you who may remember who I am - you'll find this website and blog truly represent what I'm about.
For the last several years, I've shied away from the public light of Bigfoot Research and really dove into private field research. I founded the Keystone Bigfoot Project with no public pop and circumstance - and really focused on getting the team into the field and building a network of reliable researchers. The KBP is really working hard and I'm very proud of what we are doing in the field. Aside from the field work we are also building a STATE SPECIFIC DATABASE of Bigfoot activity in Pennsylvania. We will use this to find trends and base our field deployment to test out the validity of these trends. Of course, we'll keep you posted. Check us out at KeystoneBigfoot.com
I understand that Mr. Todd Standing is also re-emerging onto the scene with some photos, videos, and endorsements from Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Dr. John Bindernagel, and the "Survivorman" himself- Les Stroud. I've been involved in this research for nearly 20 years now, and personally I feel that Mr. Standing is reviving his old shtick to get back into the limelight. I'm not buying... yet. Until I see something that irrefutably says this is a Bigfoot, better than that photo which looks like Michael Jackson in peep mode - I just can't believe in him. I'd like to to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but when one continually produces questionable evidence - it becomes harder. Shall the day come and it is proven that Mr. Standing has real evidence of the real deal - I'll be the first in line to apologize.
Missed all but the premier episode of the $10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty. I don't know if that is a good thing or bad thing. I know this is old news for many of you, but Bigfoot Entertainment hasn't been the foremost on my mind. Doesn't mean that I think those who do are less credible, just not my cup of tea. So my official stance is - I have no opinion.
Last weekend I took the trip down to Gettysburg, PA for the annual Phenomicon event. Although brief due to a loss in the family, I enjoyed dinner with my good friends Lon Stricker (Phantoms & Monsters Blogger and BTE Radio Co-Host), Tracey Roy (PA Bigfoot Society Investigator and Beer enthusiast) and my Executive Assistant and good friend Chey Crystal. Also got to meet up briefly with my BFF and partner in crime, Eric Altman (BTE Radio Host and PBS Director) and Amy Perry (BTE Radio News Contributor). I'm looking forward to next years event in May - when I can stay longer.
Next Week, I'll be at the 26th Annual Ohio Bigfoot Conference as a spectator and to hang out - not a presenter. If you happen to get a chance to say hello - I'd love it. It's going to be a big event - probably the BIGGEST BIGFOOT EVENT of the year. You may find me at the Tom Yamerone Table, but more likely at this event - the BAR!
Thanks for stopping by and reading. To use a phrase that I coined in 2006 on "The Sasquatch Experience Radio Show" -
