Probably they were all on something....and/or they'd convinced themselves they see what they want to see

I recently(last year) started camping and really enjoy it, can't wait to get out there this year. I like going to remote areas so don't have to worry about shut down areas and social distancing.

If you don't already get out of the house give it a try, you might like it.
I was planning to stake out a park in Germantown, OH a couple months ago, problem is, its now warming up and nice weather, but parks are all closed (Covid 19). Daniel Boone national forest is not too far away, Id like to go there this summer at some point, lots of Bigfoot and Dogman sightings there.

I talked to him about 2 weeks ago, he is still up for it, but he wants to wait until this virus cools down, before having anyone over.


There is a Dollar General that is very close to his house and its next to a heavily forested area, I had kicked around the idea of going and sitting in my car (parked in the lot) late at night. MY feelings are, if these things are all over his property as he claims, they are likely all over the general area too.

I try not to judge anything based on the first epi, but some of the cast need to be replaced to make this enjoyable though. Travis Taylor is supposedly a brilliant scientist but ventures into the fringe areas...it will be interesting to see how he brings his expertise to this topic.

I watched the first episode, and will watch the rest. It's interesting, but personally I don't think there's anything there. Travis is playing the role of the skeptic, and I hope he doesn't fall for the fakery just for money. He's there because he's been on several other UFO/"spooky" programs and has a following. They owner of the place seems to be an intelligent guy, and is remaining neutral. The security guys -- meh.

Travis is a sharp guy. He has 2 PhD's, 3 master's degrees, and a BS - all in techincal areas, and those degrees came from highly reputable universities (no diploma mills). So don't let his cornpone accent fool you into thinking he's stupid (I wonder if it's not for effect though, because he lives in the same area I do, and most people here don't talk like that).

After the first episode, I'm trying to figure out why they have a compulsion to "dig". I guess it's for the sake of the program since the ranch has a reputation for "no digging". If you notice, there are fences on the property. How'd they install the fenceposts without digging (I realize you can hammer posts into the ground, but that should be the same type thing).

Travis probably catches a bit of good-natured heat from his friends and associates at work. In case you don't know, he's from the Huntsville, AL area. Huntsville is where the Saturn V was designed, and the first few built. It's a highly technical R&D town. It's the home of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Redstone Arsenal, and several Army commands, and about 400 aerospace/defense contractors. There are LOTS of engineers here (literally thousands) and you'd have trouble finding one that believes in UFOs or the happenings at Skinwalker Ranch - entertaining subjects, but nothing based in reality.

The strange happenings of that particular area (not just the ranch, but the entire valley), go back 100s of years. There are old newspaper articles about strange things being seen and felt out there, its nothing new or modern, its the same thing as it was then.


Its interesting to see shows and documentaries about this place, but overall, I dont think we are capable of understanding what exactly it is, thats out there, or its motives/intentions, so any kind of 'investigation' is basically just going to be sitting around waiting for stuff to happen and then trying to document it the best they can. The Native Americans in the area could probably be a big help to the investigators, but I doubt any of them would step foot in that valley.

I thought the initial reason to dig was to see if there was actually any fallout from nuclear testing in NV.
