Having our team together for the first time for an event was really exciting, and I think we all work well together.
I will be posting photos very soon, so please check back in a few days.
The Cryptid Seekers site is coming along beautifully and we are getting some great comments and feedback on it.
We are moving forward in a very big way, and we have all put our hearts into making our collective dream come true.
Recently, we were officially welcomed by the city of Carabelle, Fla. to conduct an investigation, in March of next year, of the "Carabelle Cat", an elusive creature that has a long list of eye witness accounts, but iss as of yet unidentified.

Since, for some reason, my computer wouldn't allow me to post my full reply in the comments section on their page, I decided to post my thoughts here in my own blog where I could type as much as I want.
Here is my response:
I will reiterate and support Scott Marlowe's comment that we are NOT going on a 'hunt' with rifles, guns, or any other weapon for that matter. The choice of using the word 'hunt' in the title of the article was not made by us, and is a complete misconception of what we are setting out to do.
We will be armed only with equipment valuable for conducting our field work and research such as cameras, night vision, thermal imaging, trail cams, etc.
We will gather evidence and record data, not harass the local wildlife.
It is our hope to be able to answer questions and present valuable information that may help in the understanding, and protection of, these elusive cats....not harming them!
If having large red targets on our backs is part of the cost of doing the work that we are so passionate about, then so be it. It is a labor of love, and we make great sacrifices to do it.
And for the record, respect and honesty are valued above all in the way we conduct ourselves both as a team and as individual researchers.
Thank you to those of you who have shown your support. We are honored to be welcomed to Carabelle, and thrilled to take part in this important piece of the zoological puzzle.
I hope this helps settle the whole "HUNT" debate, and we can avoid further drama.
Have a happy day everyone!
