Philadelphia Experiment News
July 20th / 2017
Simply amazing just purchased Two Original Vintage WWII Photos of the “SS Andrew Furuseth” from a Estate Sale. If you look at ALL the books ever written on the PX you will see the SAME Single photo of the ship at launch (not even in the water), and one of the crew on deck holding the life preserver. I did find some more images however they were all after the Furuseth was sold and renamed the Essi, then later Nobi. These two are nice shots of the ship at port with the “Andrew Furuseth” ship name in clear view. Really an amazing find! hard to believe, can’t wait for them to arrive.

Did an on-camera interview with a company casting for a History Channel conspiracy show that is looking for myself as a potential candidate to host. They currently have a eight epp series planned that will be in the format of a skeptic and believer taking a closer look at various topics with some focus on Montauk. “We have you down on the list as a potential host. Our team has done a ton of research on candidates and you are on our short list.” Should be an interesting opportunity, will see…

“Death of a Legend”
October 22, 1999 – Death of a Legend
I received a UPS Worldwide Express Envelope today marked Urgent. It was from a scrap metal Trading Corporation in Pirae Greece the letter states;
- “Subject: ex. USS ELDRIDGE
- We have been informed of your interest for the abovementioned vessel.
- We have taken the liberty to write to you this letter in order to inform you that this vessel is now under our ownership. Therefore if you would still have an interest on this vessel please contact us at the abovementioned address and numbers, preferably in Piraeus – Greece, as soon as possible.”
Looks as though they are looking for a buyer before turning it into scrap metal.
September 21, 2000
The Scrap Metal Trading Company stated that the Eldridge was transferred to a demolition company for dismantle/destruction, and that they will try to provide more information on the name of the demolition company, and any photos they may of taken. in the end no further information was provided.. case closed.

Never took the time keep this section up to date so lots of missing events 🙁
I may be doing a spot on “William Shatner’s Weird or What” in the coming season…
“…. William Shatner’s Weird or What. In case you are not familiar with the show, we take a look at strange and unexplained stories and incidents and attempt to provide theories for these stories without solving or debunking anything. Getting to the point, we have begun some research into the Philadelphia Experiment as a possible story for the show and are looking for someone who can explain and outline the key points to the audience in a short interview. I came across your name and your book, and seeing as you are well versed in this event, I was wondering if this is something that you would possibly be interested in participating in.”
