Re: Mels Hole (The Strangest hole on earth)
The deepest hole in the world with Paranormal qualities?
Yes, the information we have received by several independent local sources
now seems to indicate there is a mysterious hole in Ellensburg and
as we believe the hole actually exists (even several other holes in the region),
we are serious about finding its location as an archaeological find due to its
possible ancient retaining wall and geological significance.
Chances though are that the hole is covered but a story to date with aspects
(interestingly enough) so far have been consistent with Mel's story.

Re: Mels Hole (The Strangest hole on earth)
Hole-y Mole-y!

The story of Mel Waters and his hole is fascinating, far fetched, freaky and one of the most memorable features ever to come out of the airwaves during Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell. Mel apparently looks like Willie Nelson and is often mistaken for him. As a result, he finds himself in the company of truckers happy to give him a lift. The truckers are just as delighted to discover he is Mel of 'Mel's Hole' fame (being something of a folk hero himself).

Mel (if you believe him) has, since 1997, lived a life worth ten Twilight Zone episodes.

The legend touches on almost every aspect of the paranormal:

* Resurrection & Ghosts
* Hollow Earth Theory
* Time Travel
* Parallel Universes
* Cryptozoology
* Government Black Op's and Conspiracy Theories

But it all started with a hole.


The Hole

Mel owned some land on the Manastash Ridge, Ellensburg, Washington. Before he owned the property, people had come for years and years to dump waste in a hole that some said was bottomless. They would throw refrigerators, wood, earth, and even dead cattle down the hole. But peer into the hole and you would not see the refuse build up. Shine a light and it would not reflect off the bottom, or the sides for that matter...

Drop a metal bucket down the hole and you certainly wouldn't hear a clang. Mel himself enjoyed tossing TV cathode ray tubes down, but instead of hearing an explosion and a smash, only silence.

As far as anyone could tell, the hole had no end.

The hole is nine feet in diameter, with a retaining wall around it. Mel didn't see the sides taper down - it was a straight hole and for years, people using it as an unofficial landfill site had not managed fill the thing up. Mel attached a metal lid to the top for safety.


Mel's Experiments and Discoveries

Did it have water at the bottom? Mel tried an experiment. He began lowering fishing line down the hole. He attached a tube of LifeSavers to the line and winched away, he expected the candy to dissolve upon hitting water. After winding five hundred yards down and back up, the candy remained intact.

So he lowered a one pound lead weight attached to the fishing line and kept connecting more reels. You'd think that after about three thousand feet of dangling fishing line, he'd call it a day.

He did pause for breath at eighty thousand feet - as measured by his digital meter. That's about fifteen miles of fishing line with a lead weight, weighing around eighteen pounds.

In conversation with locals, Mel discovered that one man threw his dead dog down the hole. A few days later, the man saw his dog running as though hunting with another owner.

All this and more came out in Mel's first broadcast interview with Art Bell. Art lapped it up as usual and so did I for that matter. Indeed, this was the most plausible part of the Mel's hole story.


The Next Day...

After the broadcast, the Government forced him off his land. Mel had been away from the property whilst participating in Art's show. The military was everywhere. The uniformed staff threatened him with planting drugs on his land. The official excuse that they gave Mel was that a plane had crashed on his land.

Mel didn't back off and used the publicity from Art's show to draw attention to what the Government was up to. He went back on air to tell listeners what had happened over the last three days since his first interview.

As a result of this, he managed to lease the land to the Government in perpetuity. For a number of years, Mel would receive from the US Government a quarter of a million dollars in his account every month.He made a lot of money and moved to Australia. He lived well, parlayed his money into environmental research and conservation. But just before 2000, everything changed again.


Beyond the Hole

This was the turning point where Mel deviated from the hole itself, to the telling of some very tall tales. Here's a selection from the last few years:

He came back to the USA to sort some things out, when the police (under the pretence that they needed a statement) apparently abducted him. Mel says that he woke up in an alleyway in San Francisco missing his back teeth. All his money had gone.

He met someone who had purchased a belt buckle that he had made with a dime in the centre. He had found the coin near the hole. It bore the face of Roosevelt but the date was 1943. That was impossible... Roosevelt was still alive in 1943 wasn't he?

He was invited to an Indian reservation to examine another similar hole that a local tribe had found. This new hole was different. Its inner wall was metallic as far as they could see. Perhaps this was manufactured.

The Indians had a found a source of heat inside the hole. It was a substance that looked and felt like ice, but it was hot and absorbed all moisture around it. A friend of Mel's put a lump of this hot ice in his wood burner in his log cabin. The cabin later collapsed into the ground because this weird hot ice had sucked all the moisture out of the wood!

With this new hole, Mel would experiment along with the Indians by lowering sheep down. They squealed with fear but fell silent when directly over the hole. They hauled a sheep back up after dangling it down a while - it was dead and it looked normal on the outside. They cut it open and discovered that it was completely cooked inside.

They found the sheep's chest cavity was filled with a gelatinous substance with a big throbbing tumour inside where the internal organs should have been. Mel said that the tumour pulsated like a beating heart as it was pulled out of the sheep.

The tumour was cut open.

Inside was what looked like a foetal/baby Seal with big blue human eyes. It studied the surrounding people. Mel said it looked peaceful and compassionate, not malevolent in any way. Later, the baby seal jumped back into the hole. There is more to this story, but I think you've been freaked out enough.


Beyond Mel

Mel has never been back to the place that started the legend. Remember, before Mel, the hole was widely known and used by the locals. But since the government took his property over, he suspects that anyone trying to find the land that was once his, will only find the land sectioned off with fencing and official looking 'no trespassing' signs. Nevertheless, a TV crew travelled there to corroborate Mel's story and instead of finding the hole, they did find lots of evidence of an intensive military presence.

Locals and truckers that drive through the area swear that they see a shaft of black light (if there is such a thing) or rather a shadow emanating briefly from the site.

There is a big discussion group and some very active communities that have spent a great deal of time and effort discussing the hole and trekking the Manastash looking for it, to no avail... apparently.

Mel made it quite clear to Art Bell that when he dies, he wants to be cast into the hole.


The Hole Truth and Nothing but the Truth

Before you conclude that Mel is talking out of his hole, consider this...

The TerraServer community managed to add some credibility to Mel's story. TerraServer, if you don't know, is the place you go for ariel satellite images from around the world. Curious Art Bell listeners took an image of the Ellensburg/Manastash region and interestingly enough, the section of the image that shows Mel's land (where the hole supposedly is) is completely wiped out! There is a large white square void that covers the entire property and surrounding land...

Re: Mels Hole (The Strangest hole on earth)
Theres a picture of the hole in this youtube version of the 2002 interview about 25 seconds in...


[link to www.aliendeceptions.com]

"There's a weird story that's been going around on the Internet for a few years now, of Mel's Hole, an 8 mile (or more) deep chasm in the ground outside of Ellensburg, Wash. Since the story began its garnered around it shades of Stephen King's Pet Cemetary, Spielberg's Close Encounters, and even Lovecraft's Great Old Ones.

The tale began on Art Bell's nationally syndicated "Coast to Coast" radio program on February 21, 1997 when Art's guest that evening was Washington state resident Mel Waters, who told a fantastic story of a large hole on his property which for generations had been used as an unofficial community dump. One day Mel, an ex-shark fisherman, wondered just how deep it was and rigged up a line and weights over the center of the hole and began winching down a 5,000 yard spool of shark line and went through 80,000 yards of line (16 spools!) without hitting bottom.

A neighbor of Mel's claims to have thrown the body of his dead canine down the hole and a few days later the animal returned home, none the worse for wear. Other puzzling aspects of the hole are said to be ancient retaining walls of worked stone placed the first 30 feet down the sides, and a large number of dead cow and animal bones around the periphery. A local Indian named Red Elk was featured on MTV's "Urban Legends" segment and claimed to have visited the site many times as a youngster, when he was told it was a "gateway to the underworld."

Some geologists think, if its there, its must be an exceptionally deep lava vent tube, though all insist that a fishing line, however strong, would melt long before the reported depth of eight miles.

Mel insists his story is true. Skeptics aren't so sure. So where does the search for Mel's Hole stand now?

For all the reports of people who claim to have seen the hole or experienced mysterious goings-on, no one seems to agree on its exact location. A number of researchers and reporters have combed the hills around Mel's former ranch and have come up empty-handed every time. Even Red Elk now speaks ominously that the underground "lizard people" don't want the location discovered."




Who lined the "hole" with bricks?
 Quoting: The Commentator

Supposedly the stonework has been there as long as anyone in the area can remember.

Maybe you should listen to the interviews or at least read the details I posted before criticizing the validity of this story...

Didn't think so, you don't have any.

Sonce when was sounding sincere evidence of the truthfulness of a story? Any successful conman sounds sincere. Thus by your standards they must be telling the truth.

Some people have a pathological need to believe, and the more improbable the story, the stronger the need.

I did hear both of them, and was hugely entertained. They were great tall (or in this case, deep) tales.

But that is NOT evidence they are true.

I strongly suspect Mel was having a bit of a laugh and Bell provided him a forum for his Liars Club entry. Then the loon squad decided to get into the act and make up a load of BS in an effort to get some attention.

Entertaining? To be sure? Truthful? VERY doubtful.

I prefer to posit the possibilities but I try not confuse possibility with actuality. However by considering the improbable as true can help in determining real truth.

I am at heart very skeptical person but there are things that I know and I know that they are true and these things shine on the improbable and strange sometimes revealing bits of truth here and there which open up yet greater truths!

And I see some of these "bits" in parts of this story...

Re: Mels Hole (The Strangest hole on earth)
Any evidence there even is a hole?

Didn't think so.



I don't know if you were around afa-b for "Quarnstrom's
Hole" but it was one of the funniest hoaxes ever pulled
on Bell.

I'm pretty sure you remember Glen. Well, I forget who
it was but someone put together a fake new article using
Glen's name and faxed it to Bell.

Bell swallowed it hook, line, and sinker. He even tried
to get in touch with associates of "Dr Glen Quarnstrom".

Glen ended up accepting and even enjoying the ruckus it
caused, but at first he was very unamused.


Folks, Mell's hole is no more real than Quarnstrom's hole is.

In 1997,the local newspaper,the Tri City Herald, reported that Waters was not listed in the Kittitas County telephone directory or the register of taxpayers, and that authorities in Ellensburg were unable to find any evidence that he was a resident, thus calling into question whether he ever even existed.

It's been 7 years now since he passed. The email group he
set up is still there, though not as active. He hasn't been
forgotten. His daughter Susan keeps Geezerville going.

Somehow I am not terribly surprised.

Anyone can check Washington State records (not complete, but pretty good) here:

Notice how everyone talks about the white-out square on GoogleEarth, but no mention of the actual coordinates for independent verification?

I'm sure that there will be some excuse for not releasing them. Like they are afraid people will go there and disturb the natural habitat or some such B.S.
