55 – Fouke Monster – Fouke, AR



Pitch a tent and tip -toe through Boggy Creek with Brett and Harley as they travel to Fauke Arkansas with a Beast of an Oddity and thats just the Monster Mart. On this weeks episode we visit Fauke, 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.
So pack up the Henderson’s and strap in for the long haul…. Cause Travel Oddities snagged Lyle Blackburn Ya’ll.


Our news story this week comes from Futurism Magazine. Can scientists generate power that will last long after the robots have taken over? Are Nuclear Diamonds actually forever? Researchers from some fancy college with two names seem to think so.

What The Actual Fauke!? 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 Fauke 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.

Lest we forget the Arkansas Top 5. More fun facts about Arkansas than Bigfoot can shake a stick at. Brett’s personal favorite’s no less

Brett attempts to channel his inner Matthew Mac….AGAIN…

  1. A lot of people don’t believe that Big Foot is for real but I believe that he is for real Some friends of mine seen him when they was driving home one afternoon he was just standing in an open field at first they didn’t believe what they thought the were seeing so they stopped and backed up and stopped where they could get a good look at him they couldn’t believe that he was really standing there and of course nobody believed them but did l also have seen him years ago running across the field but the adults didn’t belive us kids they just passed it off as one of the guys from church wearing a Halloween costume.and it was December and they was having a christmas party when we saw Big Foot My friends saw him down around North Sardis Road and l saw Big Foot down around Mars Hill both of these places are right here in. Arkansas.and they are.close together Neither of us has seen him again but don’t think that we don’t look to see if Big Foot is not standing there in the field
