Sighting Zone: 3
Date: 1969-1972, year long
Time: mostly at night
Duration Of The Sighting: duration of our visit
What the encounteree was feeling during the sighting: Wasn’t afraid, somewhat curious, because at the time none of us ever heard of bigfoot, yeti, etc. We called them Blue Eyed Thump Thumps…because of the blue eyes and the sound they made on the ledge above the pit when they walked.
Location Name: Place called the Rock Crusher. Three miles between Hommassa Springs and Crystal River. Off of US 19. The road that ran behind the airport with two hugh golf ball signs.
Location Description: There was only one road that ran down into the Rock Crusher which was a lime stone mining pit. It had a large beautiful swimming hole, which was widely used for camping, swimming and partying. along the sides of the pit there where ledges and bushy areas. On the top of the pit was woodland areas, in the back of the pit there were ravines, with many caves, and dense woods. In the pit itself towards the walls there were small areas of mucky swampy areas. There is one more thing I’d like to tell you about the pit, in the lake there where giant tadpoles, but you would never see any frogs or any other animals in the pit. We visited the Rock Crusher so many times between 1969-1972 and we never seen any animals in the pit. We alway thought that was very strange. Lost touch with others but can give names but don’t know addresses. At times there was as many as 70 of us there to witness these sightings. When we would go to the Rock Crusher the question wasn’t would you see a bigfoot, the question was how many would you see that night.
