Weird Travel: “Creepy Creatures”
Cryptozoologists search the world for legendary creatures, including Sasquatch, the Loch Ness Monster and Mothman.

Are programs like this worthwhile? Educational? What would you have done differently?

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Programs like this are made merely to fill programming time. They appeal to a small niche of people, us, who by now are fed up with them and, kids, who are just being introduced to cryptozoology. For those being introduced to cryptozoology, the programs serve a purpose. I was introduced the same way by watching In Search of… many years ago. However these newer crypto programs stink compared to In Search Of….anyway, it comes down to dime a dozen crypto entertainment that is made cheap for a reason.

    If you could’ve have distanced yourself from the Ica stones segment it would’ve helped. You do too good a job to be linked to such an obvious hoax.

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    Of course, busterggi, I hope you are joking. Needless to say, interviewees have no control of what the editor decides to juxaposition next to each other in a program. And funny thing about this specific episode, it was constructed from the parts of three past “Weird Travel” programs (on Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and Winged Weirdies”).

    I was never interviewed nor did I sleep with the Ica stones.

  4. Ceroill responds:

    Just saw the episode. I had missed the other episodes it was compiled from, but I found it fairly well presented. Well, compared to some other shows. I liked the interview segments with you, Loren, and how in the Mothman segment they brought out it was originally called the Big Bird, and the detail about the dog.

    I hadn’t known anything about the ‘Ica Stones’ before. I have to agree with bustereggi about the questionable nature of them.

  5. springheeledjack responds:

    Those shows are a nice overview, and AT LEAST weird travels takes a more objective approach to it than some of the National Geographic Channel shows.

    My only complaint would be that it was more of an overview of a lot of things. As it was said, good to water the mouths of the new generations into the world of cryptozoology, but not really anything new for veterans. However, I still like to watch the shows just to support them and to keep an eye out for updated information. Weird Travels gets a thumbs up!

  6. Time213 responds:

    In regards to the Ica Stones, (since I missed the show) what are your thoughts, Mr. Coleman?

    I’d also like to read a blog on the Figurines of Acambaro (If you haven’t already posted one, that is).
