Destination Truth – Vietnam’s Bigfoot – S05E01
So here we are with a brand new season of Destination Truth and I’ve been anxiously waiting to see what kind of adventures and chaos, Josh has in store. Right off the bat we notice the team has been shuffled around and it’s a crew of new faces. Except for Ryder of course, who’s come back for more. (As a side note, did anyone else notice Erin Ryder is listed as Co-Executive Producer?)
But anyway, on with the show. Josh and the new team head over to Vietnam to investigate sightings of a creature similar to Bigfoot. As expected, we find the team in the market sampling the wares. This happens to include escargot, which doesn’t look appetizing at all, and shots of snake bile and snake blood. I don’t see how they do it. I really don’t.
Moving away from the market, we do learn it’s very likely that an unknown animal can live in the jungle. It’s reported that more than a dozen new species of animal are discovered in the jungle each year. In fact, the world’s largest cave was just discovered. Considering the satellite imagery and photos of just about everything under the sun (Area 51 not included), it’s amazing to think that the world’s largest cave just popped up.
The team heads deep into the jungle of Kai Bang. And getting there is quite an adventure of it’s own. Using motorcycles they forge rivers, catch a couple of boats and then Josh gets the wild idea that he’s The Fonz and tries to jump his motorcycle across the river. It doesn’t end well. It’s hilarious mind you, with Josh going over the handlebars and sinking, but the motorcycle doesn’t fair to well.
But that isn’t the end of just getting there. There’s plenty of cliffs to descend, water buffalos to use as transportation and inflatable canoes. Where the devil do they get this stuff?
It all seems to be worth it as they come across some massive footprints in a cave. They are massive caves where you could turned around and never find your way out again. Just ask Richie, he almost become the red-shirted ensign of Destination Truth.
Josh and the team make a casting of the footprint, make very wide sweep of the area, but don’t get sight of the creature itself. I didn’t hear them mention any bones or animal "scat" in their findings so who knows if there was a food source to be had.
We do get to see that there’s plenty of undiscovered country out there and you could pass right by Bigfoot and not even know it. Is there some ape-like creature still living out there that’s very adept at staying out of the path of humans? With that massive cave system is it able to eat and dwell without being disturbed?
Well, something made those tracks and based on the terrain, they don’t seem to be a man-made hoax.
