The Georgia Bigfoot Trackers have shown up again. Their vehicle, on February 17th, burned out of control in Florida and due to being alerted to that incident, we see they have posted recent videos (below).
A fire that engulfed a recreational vehicle along Interstate 4 Thursday evening led to the closure of the eastbound lanes of the highway.
Officials with the Florida Highway Patrol said the highway was closed at Mile Marker No. 108.
The RV was in the right lane and shoulder of the road. The highway was closed for about an hour, and traffic was backed up for about 10 miles.
Volusia County Fire Services Battalion Chief Chris Sievert said the occupants of the RV — three adults, two children and a dog — all escaped uninjured.
The driver of the RV told fire officials that thick smoke started coming from under the hood as they were driving, so they stopped and got out. The State Fire Marshal’s Office was called because the driver couldn’t identify any mechanical issues with the RV.
Sievert said the RV was trailed to a sport utility vehicle with the logo for the website BigfootTracker.com , which advertises appearances on Animal Planet, CNN and other networks.
The driver told the fire department that he and his family were on a 36-state tour looking for Bigfoot.
Fire officials said the RV was a total loss, but the SUV had only minor heat damage as it was separated immediately from the flaming vehicle.

Not sure why this newspaper mentioned these guys being on Animal Planet. Has the Florida media source confused the BFRO’s Finding Bigfoot crew with the Bigfoot Trackers’ YouTube videos?
Thanks for the heads up from B. Green.

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
