Update From Eric Altman

Hello everyone,

I've been busy as of late with personal issues, and such and trying to organize a fall expedition. I was planning on holding it during the labor day weekend, however that weekend didnt work well for most people. Therefore, I have moved the date of the fall expedition to September 18, 19, 20 2009. The location of the expedition will be held in West Central Pennsylvania with our base camping out of Parker Dam State Park.

I have been working with a few researchers in the area, Dave Rupert, Sean Forker and Ernie Delp and others to come up with a few areas to send teams into to investigate, conduct night ops, and day ops research. We will continue our scouting and field preperation work in these areas in the next few weeks. We have several locations where there have been reports of recent activity that has taken place in the past 3 months where sightings have taken place and/or our research team has experienced activity. In order to better organize this expedition, I would like to get a head count as to how many will be attending or planning to attend.

We are looking at reserving a group camping site area at Parker dam where everyone will need to submit payments for your share of the camp site, and you will have to pay 3.00 per day to use the public shower facility. Once we get a head count I will send out how much individual costs will be to camp. Individuals interested in attending must provide your own camping, cooking and research equipment, along with own food to cook. This expedition will be free to attend and participate in, however you will be responsible to pay for your own share of the campsite, for use of the showers, providing your own camping gear and research equipment, your own food and cooking it and transportation to the campgrounds. I need to have a head count by August 15 so that we can start to plan teams to send into various locations. At this point we are looking at 4 areas where we can send in research teams to investigate.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP by August 15, 2009. If you are uncertain, please RSVP so that we can plan on your attending and can prepare for you to attend, rather than have you attend and we do not have a head count and preperations in place.

These areas we are sending teams into, have had on going activity, sightings and reports during the past few months and historically for a long period of time.

Our hope is to incorporate several research organizations to work together to collect information, data and any evidence. If you do not plan to attend, or are not able. Please email me and I'll remove your name from the mailing list. I can tell you from a recent trip to the area, the investigators involved have had some interesting, yet inconclusive experiences that warrant further investigation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
