Goings On Around the Clubhouse

Summer is here at the Kempton Clubhouse. There has been a lot of rain this spring, including flooding in areas around us, but the Kempton Clubhouse stayed high and dry. The summer heat has come to Arizona and the clubhouse has its air conditioning going full blast, waiting for a thunderstorm.

My latest book, Antarctica and the Secret Space Program, has just been released as of early June. It covers the bizarre history of Antarctica, beginning before World War II and continuing to the present time. Get a copy today!

Unfortunately both HistoryCon at the Pasadena Convention Center from April 3 to 5 and the UFO-Con in Orlando were cancelled because of the covid-19 virus pandemic. No one knows when these conferences will start up again. Check out future dates of UFO-Con in Florida at: https://www.theufocon.com/tickets

The covid-19 pandemic has changed all of our lives, but our bookstores and clubhouses are back open after being closed for two months and we are adapting to modern life as best we can. We even have a new WEX Face Mask, produced in Kempton, that is available at in the WEX online store, or just give us a call and order one by phone. They are only $14.95, postage paid in the United States. Be stylish and be safe!

We had a good time in February on the WEX trip to megalithic Mexico and the Zapotec cities of Oaxaca. We visited the mountaintop city of Monte Alban, the megalithic ruins of Mitla, and drove over the mountains to the sandy beaches of the Pacific Coast. See the article on Monte Alban in the Spring issue of World Explorer. Check out future trips at the events pages. https://wexclub.com/events

I traveled around Micronesia, Hawaii, Colombia and Peru for the Ancient Aliens show on the History Channel in 2019. Jennifer and I met up with old friend Hugh Newman (who was also featured in the episode) while in Peru, and a few weeks later flew to Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii for a shoot in some lava tubes and other areas of the island. We learned some interesting things—see the Menehune article a few issues ago. Later we went back to Hawaii, this time to Oahu where we met up with Giorgio Tsoukalos, and then flew to Micronesia.

To facilitate people who would like to go to Antarctica but feel they can’t afford it, we are offering a payment plan. After discussing the Antarctica trip with Mike Migliore of Holiday Maker Travel, the agency running the WEX Club cruises, we decided to reschedule the cruise for December of 2021, so your monthly payment could be less than $1,000/month if you sign up soon.

Mike tells me that Hurtigruten Cruises has a brand new expedition ship for Antarctica and we can be one of the first groups to use this ship. Giorgio Tsoukalos has agreed to participate in our 11-day expedition and the whole group will fly to Buenos Aires, Argentina and then fly to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost city in the world. From there we will embark on a double-hulled exploration ship and spend five full days in Antarctica with lots of shore excursions. All excursions, meals and drinks are included in the package. Lots of special presentations will be given by me, Giorgio and others on this cruise. Contact Mike for questions on the ship at the wexclubcruises website.

Participants need to sign up early to confirm our space on the ship and receive substantial discounts, so if you are interested, we need you to commit in the next few months! This has been the snag in the works with us scheduling the trip in the past—the cruise ship cancels our hold on rooms pretty early.
