Goings On Around the Clubhouse
The fall weather is hitting the Kempton Clubhouse with warm days and cool nights. The harvesting of the corn and soybeans in the surrounding fields has already begun. The days at the Arizona clubhouse continue to be warm but a cool down is coming soon.
We had a great WEX trip to Paris, Brittany, and Ireland in September. We flew to Paris and then went by bus to Mont St. Michel on the western Normandy coast. From there we drove to the town of Quiberon and explored the many dolmens and standing stones in the area. We were fortunate enough to have local megalith expert Howard Crowhurst join for a day, and also had knowledgeable friends Hugh Newman and Kate Masters with us. We visited Chartres Cathedral on the way back to Paris and then flew to Dublin in Ireland where we visited Newgrange, a round tower and the Hill of Tara. We had really good weather in both France and Ireland and the whole group had a great time!
Our next trip will be to Peru on February 13th, 2019. Our group flies to Lima and visits Cuzco, Ollantaytambo, Machu Picchu, and Lake Titicaca. We will also be going to the little-visited Espinar area between Cuzco and Lake Titicaca to check out the megalithic ruins and strange mushroom-like towers in the area. We end the trip at the town of Puno on Lake Titicaca where we check out the various megalithic towers in that area before flying back to Lima. Space is limited so check out the full itinerary at the events pages. https://wexclub.com/events
I had a good time at the AlienCon 2018 in Pasadena from June 15 to 17. It was great to see old friends and the many people involved with the Ancient Aliens show.

After discussing the Antarctica trip with Giorgio Tsoukalos he has agreed to participate in our 11-day expedition to Antarctica starting December 10, 2019. With Giorgio we 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 and others on this cruise. Contact Mike for questions on the ship at the wexclubcruises website. This might be the time to cross Antarctica off your bucket list! Check out the web pages at: www.wexclubcruises.com
