|Art Champoux has been an UFO investigator since 1964. He has worked with Ray Fowler, Walter Webb, John Keel, a lady that he can not name, and several different UFO groups. In the 1960s he was with APRO, CAPER, NIACP, then when APRO went out he was with NICAP and then APRO, Now he is with MUFON. The world of the paranormal has always fascinated him as even as a small boy he had some eerie happenings. His Great grandmother was a spirit medium so maybe he has inherited something. He is a hypnotist and has written for several publications and his leanings are much like John Keels. He beleives there is an ultra force, not from outer space, but much like John's and even Jaques Vallees' contention...we are but one dimension out of many that reign on this planet.
Follow The Drinking Gourd

Who knows what the drinking gourd is? Well you will find out later on.
To find the Drinking Gourd, look to the north sky after dark. In the spring the Big Dipper appears to be standing on its handle in the north. The two end stars in the bowl can be used to locate the north star, Polaris. A line drawn through these two stars will point straight to Polaris.
But first some "underground history." In the mid 1940s, 1950s and 1960s there were many who followed the drinking gourd. A lot of black slaves from the South followed it. So did UFOs! They used it as a reference to come up North away from the South. The tyrants of the blacks, who killed, raped and tortured the them were a disgrace to the human race. But the UFOs used it as a highway for close encounters.
I personally did a lot of cases in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s that they took the same route - from South to North, up and down the East coast: Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Conn, Rhode Island, New York, Mass, and New Hampshire, right up into the Canadian border and back! I tracked these sightings for a long time. Some did not follow a patern and were random.
But as Goldfinger said in James Bond, "Once is coincidence, twice is happenstance and three times is enemy action."
So I rate this as enemy action!
But just as the UFOs and many humans used this drinking gourd...it was made as a sign for travel.
Pete Seeger sung this song and made it popular. "Follow the Drinking gourd, follow the drinking Gourd, for the old man is a waiting to give you some freedom so follow the drinking gourd. Right foot left foot, at the dark of night show you the way, just follow the drinking gourd."
Maybe the aliens heard the song ,too. But the drinking gourd was a nighttime sign in the sky to walk at night by and I contest it MIGHT be a sign for all of us to remember!
So what is the drinking Gourd? It is the guide to the North Star! The cup of the "gourd " is the stars that make up the "cup" and the handle is the stars that are in a line that make up the "handle." But the pointer stars are the 2 that you line up on the front of the cup that are the pointer stars to the NORTH STAR!
So if you followed the drinking gourd you would be going north! Away from the South and heading to freedom.
