Bigfoot on Weird Travels Tonight

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 22nd, 2008

“Weird Travels: Bigfoot” (a repeat, of course) airs on Friday, February 22 at 9 PM and 1 AM on the morning of February 23, Eastern Time, on the Travel Channel. Check your local listings for the airtime in your area.

This is the episode that both Craig Woolheater and Loren Coleman were involved in for this series.

The film crew was in the field with members of Craig’s research group during his field operation, as well as spending time with Craig in Jefferson, Texas, and at Caddo Lake. The shooting also included a day trip to Fouke, Arkansas to check into the local legend of the Fouke Monster.

They filmed Loren at his museum in Maine, and during his interviews, he shared insights from his five decades of fieldwork.

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.

    great show! have seen it before but will set my tivo! 😉

    (btw, hope you guys are getting some residuals!) 😉

  2. Loren Coleman responds:

    LOL. As most people realize, no residuals, payments, or any kind of financial benefit are forthcoming from any repeats of reality programs, documentaries, and/or news shows in which Craig, me, or any interviewees appear.

    I wish the real world was full of fiscal rewards for Craig and all of us, for our Bigfoot work, that merely involved “reruns.”

  3. CryptoHaus_Press responds:

    yes, i was (of course!) joking.

    but a thought occurs to me, Loren: if you were making a fortune? the critics and skeptics (is there a difference?) would only say you’re in it for the money instead of the thrill of discovery.

    just my humble opinion, though! 😉

  4. planettom responds:

    I’m watching now! Up late on a Friday, what better to do. I actually and finally, caught the program about a week or so ago. I live in Texas, and I’ve been to the Big Thicket, but many years ago. I hope to take another trip there again soon.

  5. Spinach Village responds:

    wow, i caught the end, it seems that i got a chance to catch it in the morning at 10 am.-

    i was really kicking myself about missing it.. ..

    thanks a lot.

  6. squatch-toba responds:

    When is someone in the T.V. world going to realize that Loren should have a weekly show of his own???? It would be SO much better than the horrid crud that is on 90% of the time now. I think we should all DEMAND it from the networks!!! I know that I would tune in to watch “The Loren Coleman Show” every week!!!!! Hey ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, A&E, etc., wake up and jump on this ratings giant!!!!!!

  7. planettom responds:

    I love that idea squatch-toba, maybe a “Crypto-news of the Week” or “This week in CZ” on Sci-Fi or the History channel starring Loren. Either an hour or half-hour program for updates in the world of cz. I definitely would watch and I know there is an audience for it.

  8. Spinach Village responds:

    Good point. Not that ratings are everything, but apparently there is a big audience for stuff of this nature….

    I seen the weird travels thing this morning, Great TV!

    here’s my opening for MUTUAL OF OGOPOGO’S WILD CRYPTO KINGDOM:

    Loren Coleman: Hi, I’m Loren Coleman, host of WILD CRYPTO KINGDOM. Tonight, we take on a savage Sasquatch.

    SHOTS of howling, shrieking Sasquatch in the distance. Loren turns to Craig Woolheater.

    Loren: I’ll stay here in the observation tower while my assistant in tonight’s episode, Craig Woolheater, wrestles first-hand with this notably ferocious cryptoid creature. Craig..?

    Craig looks stunned — since when did THIS become the game plan?

    Craig: Yeah, but, uh… Loren, I…

    Sasquatch: (ripping tree branches like paper strips) RooAaAAARRRRR!

    Loren: Better hurry, Craig. Wouldn’t want to disappoint our viewers. Nor let this prime moment slip away…

    * * *

    i’m dating myself, of course. MUTUAL OF OMAHA and whatnot… maybe it should be more in the IN SEARCH OF… format?

    btw, sure hope Craig and Loren are LOL! 😉 all in good jest as you guys were great!

    (though I wished the whole show had been about TBRC as a biased Texan!)
