The heat of summer is coming on at the Arizona clubhouse and the cacti are blooming. The bookstore is open in downtown Kempton and the corn and soybean fields have been planted. Illinois has seen quite a bit of rain so the fields will be green. Take a drive to Kempton for a visit on a sunny afternoon. The Cottonwood bookstore is open three days a week and having a big sale. Some WEX members have dropped by the Illinois and Arizona clubhouses, so keep us in mind on your travels.
My latest book, Haunebu: The Secret Files, was released in March. It covers the bizarre history of German flying saucer research that started in the 1930s. Get a copy today! It looks like there will be a Season 14 of Ancient Aliens. Giorgio, Hugh Newman, William Henry and I participated in a pre-production meeting recently and everyone is thrilled. Stay tuned for more information on when the new episodes might start filming and airing.
The covid-19 pandemic has changed all of our lives, but our Illinois bookstore and all the clubhouses are open and we are adapting to modern life as best we can. We even have a WEX Face Mask, produced in Kempton, that is available 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 are hoping to make a trip in February to the fabulous Mayan city of Copan in Honduras and the Olmec areas of the highlands of Guatemala—an area hardly known to archeologists or tourists. We fly to Guatemala City and then our private bus takes us across southern Guatemala to the border town of Copan in Honduras, site of the Mayan ruins known for spectacularly-preserved artwork. We later go into the largely unexplored Olmec highlands of the Pacific Coast of Guatemala. Our private bus will take us through the lush hills and forests of the highlands to the ancient capital of the Quiché Mayans, Santa Cruz del Quiché. It will be an exciting time in these magical countries.
We are also planning a trip to Athens and then to the Peloponnese and Delphi to look at the many megalithic sites in Greece in September. Give us a call or send an email if you are interested in this trip. Check out all the details at: https://wexclub.com/events
Covid has thrown a major wrench into our plans to go to Antarctica and we have suspended that trip indefinitely. We will let you know if we revive these plans.
