For anyone who actually wants to know more about this topic, this conference is a great opp. I've only been to one (2009); the next one I can make (this year's maybe?), I definitely will.

All those are gonna be good. Munns alone brings world-class expertise in something skeptics think should be easy to do...but he knows isn't.

I'll let you know. If I can't make it it won't be for not trying.

In '09 I did some cool sidetrips - Beavers Bend (that lake is the prettiest view I ever woke up to in a hotel room) and Little River and the Talimena Drive in AR/OK; hikes plus an all-night "scoping" drive (including the Ghost Road, around 1 a.m.) in the Thicket. The whole area is, you know, kinda squatchy.

Aaaand, now we've added Lyle Blackburn to the line-up! Really excited about that. If you're read his excellent book on Boggy Creek, you know Lyle has a deep comprehension of the area's bigfoot lore.

The schedule is being monkeyed with to make room and will be posted as soon as it's done.

Will there be additional security for Munns incase an Erickson support decides to go wacko? :wild:

Thank you for your concern, but I doubt that it will be necessary. The storm seems to have passed, and the realization that the EP has more problems with it's relationship with ketchum than with me seems to have put the matter back into a more balanced perspective.

Plus I understand the bulletproof glass is really transparent so nobody will have trouble seeing me through it.

You could always borrow the Popemobile until they get a new one.
