Pitch a tent and tiptoe through Boggy Creek with Brett and Harley as they travel to Fouke Arkansas with a Beast of an Oddity and that’s just the Monster Mart. On this weeks episode we visit Fouke, Arkansas and investigate the story behind the 1972 cult classic “The Boggy Creek Monster” with the man who literally wrote the book on the ‘The Beast’ with “The Beast of Boggy Creek“. Crypto legend, author, producer and musician; Lyle Blackburn. Gather around the campfire as Lyle takes you on a guided tour of Fauke and tells you what stories inspired him as a child and what stories still give him the chills to this very day. We talk about how a little hole in the wall Oddity shop became a “Monster Quest” of a road trip destination.
What The Actual Fouke!? If you’re planning your next trip on a tankful Lyle puts his “Beastly” reputation on the line with everything from the best burger to best donut in town. Not to mention the Monster of all Marts… Monster Mart.
PUP TENTS BEWARE!!! Plenty of primitive campsites in the Fouke and Boggy Creek areas there aren’t many places for lodging so roughing it is the order of the day. So Heed the Beasts call and beware of Nightfall.
So pack up the Henderson’s and strap in for the long haul… Cause Travel Oddities snagged Lyle Blackburn Ya’ll.
