Tom Biscardi, the Godfather of Bigfoot, and his team are on a high tech research expedition that started in Arizona earlier in July. The trip will span the contiguous United States with the team visiting Washington, Montana, Arizona, Oklahoma, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, Rhode Island, Utah and Maine before finishing.
The team will be stopping in Bell County to celebrate the inclusion of their findings for the state. The Bell County Historical Society Museum, located at 207 North 20th Street in Middlesboro, will be hosting Biscardi and his team on Saturday for the exhibit opening. The public is invited to meet the Bigfoot Hunter and crew from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as they share these items of interest found in the state.
Items of interest include gear the group has used, footprint casts, hair samples and other discoveries. Biscardi and his crew will also be giving free signed photos to the first 20 visitors to the museum in addition offering ten framed and signed DVD promos to those with the best Bigfoot sighting in the area. A lucky few visitors may get a chance to go on a local expedition with the team.
“Some of the finest museum quality casts and evidence we have gathered in Kentucky we are compelled to leave in the state and in this historic museum in Middlesboro,” said Biscardi. “I can think of no better place to serve as the repository for these important artifacts.”
Expedition members who will be in attendance include longtime team member Rocky Slavens, thermal imaging expert and author of “Sasquatch For Sale” Micheal Greene, a retired Navy SEAL, a retired Chief Fraud Investigator, an ex-Marine sniper, and of course Tom Biscardi and his son T.J. Biscardi, a former Army ranger.
“Tom and T.J. Biscardi are old friends of Bell County and the museum,” said Bell County Historical Society and Museum Executive Director William Tribell.
“I was fortunate enough, along with Neal Williams of the Tri-State Paranormal Investigators, to go out into the mountains near Middlesboro last year with the Searching for Bigfoot crew. I spent three days and nights in the wilderness atop a mountain with them hunting evidence, hunting Bigfoot, and I have the utmost respect for what they do and the passion with which they do it,” Tribell added. “We are quite honored that Tom and the gang have chosen our museum to be the repository for their evidence collected in the state of Kentucky.”
Biscardi is an award-winning film producer for the movies Bigfoot Lives, Bigfoot Lives 2 and Anatomy of a Bigfoot Hoax.
Bigfoot exploded into mainstream consciousness when the famous Patterson-Gimlin Bluff Creek film of 1967 supposedly caught a minute of the creature walking through the woods. Believed by many to be legitimate, it has been the subject of controversy for over 49 years. New evidence developed by the members of Bigfoot Projects Investments, Inc. strongly indicates that sadly, the film is a hoax, and the team is actively continuing its work to present an ironclad case to the public. Biscardi’s film “The Hoax of the Century” argues very persuasively to that effect.
Biscardi’s goal is to prove to the public at large the question of this mysterious beast’s existence once and for all. A film crew will be recording their attempts over the weeks and months to come. The parent company Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc., upon approval from FINRA has gone public and was awarded the ticker symbol “BGFT.” They hope to continue to place the company in the forefront of Bigfoot research.
In addition to the research expeditions and the resulting TV special, there are a number of new projects that include Bigfoot 3D movies. The films will be jointly produced with Brian Rogers, the award-winning producer of Godzilla 3D. The company is also conducting extensive research into the use of Virtual Reality for incorporation into the development of a new Bigfoot wilderness hunting game which promises to “raise the hair on the back of your head”
At the completion of this current expedition, Bicardi will pass the baton to his son T.J. who will lead all future expeditions. The requirements of managing the new company and development of new projects preclude Bicardi from engaging in the extensive travel and research requirements required for each expedition.
Remaining expedition dates include: July 20-22, Shepherdsville, Kentucky; July 23, Middlesboro; July 28-31, Sallis, Mississippi; Aug. 1-4, Provo, Utah; Aug. 4-9, Browning, Montana; and Aug. 9-12, Tacoma, Washington.
