Graham Watts tags along on the occasional investigation. Most notably, a foray into an old family cemetery in Amherst County, one that even made him “a tad bit scared.”
He has loved watching Watts’ trajectory, both running his own business and pursuing a childhood passion.
“Never knew that a kid chasing chickens around with film would come to where it did,” he said. “I couldn’t be prouder.”
At 40, Woody Watts feels like he’s living the life he was meant to, producing podcasts and videos, running a successful marketing agency and, above all else, having a ton of fun.
He loves the adventure, the spontaneity, like waking up a rainy Friday morning and deciding to drive two and a half hours to a Cryptozoology and Paranormal Museum in Littleton, North Carolina.
It’s on that trip, one he took sometime last year with his wife, Laura, where his skepticism was truly tested. The town is little more than a post office and a Hardee’s, but the museum was everything he had dreamed it would be — with a giant bigfoot statue, castings of footprints and a haunted doll locked up in the corner.
What began as a simple day trip escalated into them following the museum owner, Stephen Barcelo, who operates it out of his home, deep into Medoc Mountain State Park, where Barcelo told them a couple had a bigfoot sighting a few weeks before.
