Looking for Nessie

I well recall watching back in 1992 a BBC TV show titled Desperately Seeking Nessie, which profiled a man named Steve Feltham, who had taken the decision to quit his job and his regular life, and head to the shores of Loch Ness to seek out the monster of its darkened depths. And he's still there, nearly two decades later. And what is it that continues to drive Steve onwards and upwards in his search for the truth? You can now find out for yourself.

Wonderful column. More evidence that cryptozoology is like the clergy or priesthood- you don't just find it, it finds you and rarely lets you go. And like a priest, a cryptozoologist spends his or her life pondering something that might very well not be "real." But because non-existence can't be proven so, we keep the faith!

Yeah, Steve's story is as much a human interest one as it is a quest for monsters. He's a cool guy.
