excellent short story there!!!
I visited that Mels Hole site when I was in Washington state. Found nothing but did manage to get chased by the cops. Probably because we were trespassing though, and not because we were on the verge of discovering the hole.
Shit, I was about to actually do some work.
I'd love to go and see The Money Pit sometime. It's probably just looks like a big hole in the ground but still.
Here are a couple of the links from the last thread:
Mel's Hole Part 1 and 2 and the second radio show he did which ramps up the weirdness a bit more
***This is just a really good short story with pics but it is pretty unnerving so thought it was worth it.
Put away those firey biscuits
