Goings On Around the Clubhouse

The winter weather is hitting the Kempton Clubhouse hard with the polar vortex making the tiki masks and New Guinea statues shiver from the cold. The frozen world outside was colder than Antarctica for several days. The nights at the Arizona clubhouse are chilly but it warms up during the day and the quails and hummingbirds continue to visit daily.

Our upcoming trip to Peru leaves on February 13. Our group flies to Lima and visits Cuzco, Ollantaytambo, Machu Picchu, and Puno. 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. Check out future trips at the events pages. https://wexclub.com/events

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!

11 day cruise to ANTARTICA

After discussing the Antarctica trip with Giorgio Tsoukalos he has agreed to participate in our 11-day expedition 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

My latest book, Bigfoot Nation, was released last year. It covers the history of bigfoot and sasquatch in North America from the early 1800s right up to 2018! Packed with illustrations, this is the ultimate history of the giant hairy critter.
