Video: Mongolin Dust Devil trashes Campsite

OK, I've finally got around to sorting through some old video footage of our Deathworm expedition to Mongolian in 2005! Yep, only taken me 6 years! The attached video shows a huge Dust Devil making its way towards are campsite, with disastrous results!

e-Mongol, Chupacabra and Bigfoot

So what’s been happening this week? Well I don’t know about you, but I seem to have miss-placed most of it - its zipped by so fast that I didn’t even realise it was Saturday until a few hours ago. But I guess it’s subjective and for some of you the week probably dragged, and still feels like Monday? Ah, I'm digressing, again... time for some news.
Friday’s Round-up

Friday’s Round-up

With the resent wave of TV programs and tabloid interest in all things weird, it seems that more and more people are believing in monsters, ufo’s, ghosts and previously poo-pooed subjects, but why? Are we all so totally fed up with reality TV and stories of war that we need something new to stimulate our tiny minds? Maybe? But I think this is an exciting time, if more people are looking for these things, the greater the chance of actually finding something tangible, and the more evidence they find the more they will want to look. But it's interesting how we can swing from cynic to believer so quickly. More than half of the UK population believe in UFOs, and a staggeringly large amount of Americans are convinced the US Government are in contact or in league with Aliens. Are they? Should we be worried?
