Yes, you'll be quite surprised to find a lot of the amazing things to be true. Like human's for example. you humans are so interesting. I love humans for the fact that you are so easily munipulated. Money, food, sex, it's all the same for everyone.

$27000 wouldnt even pay for thier flights to Africa. I would be asking for a lot more than that. Add another nought onto the end and maybe it would be enough for a proper expedition

edit.....sorry, I hate typos :)

What airlines have you been flying with! I've been to Africa for significantly less than that! Though if I had that money I reckon I could make a far more worthwhile and less silly expedition.

Hi Matt, it was just a figure of speach, although if it was with British Airways, it wouldn't be far off the mark, lol.
I agree with you. The money would be better off spent elsewhere, or kept in the pockets of any would-be donator  :)

that's so cool, wish I could go. Hope they find something. Is it true there are no more uncontacted humans anymore, never to have had any contact with the outside world..

spiders the size of canines, hmm no thanks.  I can't believe that people would fund them, I mean the lack of knowledge in those feilds itself makes me think they will explain anything that makes a bush move as a undiscovered dinosaur.  Don't think they would ever make it back alive if they did go.  I would rather go to Ireland and drink Guiness tell I see leprechauns personally, hear they are more noticable after you drink a few :tsu:

I wish him good luck. If I was him I would go after any monitor lizard I would come across. What kind of animal looks like the most old representations of  sauropods anyway ?

So basically me and couple of buds want some cash so we can go on a cool trip - and bring a tranq rifle if they'll let us.

As a member of the expedition, a statement like this is sad.  The Congo is not a vacation destination.  We will be dealing with anti-malarial resistant mosquitoes, tsetse flies that carry African Sleeping Sickness & elephantitis, schitoasis in the rivers and swamps, and security will be uncertain.  For the few ignorant people out there that think we're going to risk our health and safety for a "cool trip" are dead-wrong.  For the few of you out there that may have visisted Africa before in maybe Botswana or Kenya, then I can confirm that the tsetse flies are going to be far worst in the Congo because they haven't been largely eradicated as they have been in other countries.

I am going because this part of the world is 80% unexplored and one of the last places on the planet that has solid mysteries that everyone can attest to have some curiousity toward.  I can't divulge everything about the location or documentary topics but I can confirm that we will be the first group filming in the swampy jungles for 3 months.  This is extraordinary undertaking and is not without it's difficulties.

We will be taking some military grade thernal scopes and night vision.  Although, I must admit that this hasn't helped other expeditions in the past. However, few expeditions have spent more than 3 months in the jungle.

As for the individual who mentioned about cannibals in the Congo--I can only confirm that they indeed exist but the western world hasn't heard much about it as details are hard to get out from the North Democratic Republic of Congo.  Hopefully, this will be an area that we explore in our documentary if we have time and resources.

The Congo has several species that are reported but remain unconfirmed by mainstream science (i.e. new primate species).  We hope to reveal some of the Congo's secrets that others have failed to do so before us.

Although we have raised funds to cover the expedition, we are still seeking funding to pursue the documentary project that we desire to produce.  You can read more about it HERE

Do you, or any of the others, have any experience in this type of expedition? What qualifications do you, or the others have regarding survival etc?  These are just two questions I would have to ask prior to parting with any cash towards your fund. Not that I am going to. Just asking :)
