TRAVIS: The True Story of Travis Walton, recounts the experiences of the work crew that day in the forest and the weeks that followed this incident. They and Travis struggled to make sense of the event enduring humiliation, and job losses. Travis has encountered lifelong ridicule regarding his experiences. Driving home after a day of clearing underbrush in the Sitgreaves National Forest, seven loggers come upon a 40-foot shiny disc hovering on the crest of a ridge. As if spellbound, Travis jumps from the passenger side of their work truck and runs toward the craft for a closer look. That decision - on November 5, 1975 - would change him and these loggers forever. Travis’s story became a book called “Fire in the Sky” and a movie (1993). The Paramount Picture feature film enhanced his “close encounter of the third kind,” (a term coined by ufologist J. Allen Hynek denoting human observations of actual aliens or “animate beings”). The Travis Walton UFO story remains one of the most well-documented stories of all time that will soon commemorate the 40th anniversary of this incident.

This was an informal gathering at the ThatChannel.com studio on Bay Street in Toronto on Thursday, June 23rd. As my friend and I got there, Travis was already seated at the table, signing books and posters for those who were attending the event. A while later, we enjoyed the showing of the latest documentary entitled "Travis", which was followed by a Q&A session with both Travis Walton and UFO Historican Richard Dolan, who was also present. The entire session was recorded and is available on YouTube for viewing. Conversing with Travis Walton was the highlight of the evening for me, since I had spoken to him on the phone once or twice, back in 1993, just a few weeks before the movie "Fire in the Sky" was released in theatres. My friend and fellow paranormal investigator, Bruce Roach, also attended the event and he took the opportunity to have a few books signed by Travis, including one book entitled "Ultimate Encounter" written by someone I was unaware of...an author by the name of Bill Barry.
