Skyfish, Flying Rods or just Moths?
A History Channel/Monster Quest mashup that appears to debunk the whole Skyfish or Flying Rods…
So whatâ€™s been happening this week? Well I donâ€™t know about you, but I seem to have miss-placed most of it – its zipped by so fast that I didnâ€™t even realise it was Saturday until a few hours ago. But I guess itâ€™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.
Cryptoworld & e-Mongol â€“ I would like to announce that we are now the official UK representatives for e-Mongol. As you know Cryptoworld joined forces with the CFZ in May of this year, and headed to Mongolia in search of the Allghoi Khorkhoi (Death Worm). The trip as you can imagine, was not your usual run of the mill package-holiday (what is these days?), and because none of us had visited Mongolia before, we thought it best to enlist a local company that could organise this rather unique adventure, e-Mongol fitted this bill perfectly.
How it worked – we selected a few locations that we new we wanted to visit, and using this information e-Mongol suggested a complete itinerary, organizing transport, accommodation, meetings with local officials, even access to the strictly prohibited areas of the southern Gobi that borders China – yet still allowing us time to visit all the usual tourist sights along the way.
Since our return to the UK, Cryptoworld has been working with e-Mongol, following up on reports of the Death Worm and planning a return trip in 2006/07. In October they asked if we would act as their official UK contact, seeing we had first hand knowledge of just how good a service they offer, and how friendly the whole e-Mongol team are, we couldn’t really say no.
So if youâ€™re thinking of traveling to Mongolia for a two week vacation, or want to plan your own tailored-made expedition, give e-Mongol a call, and if you have any questions, or would just like to find out more about our expedition, drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other bits and bobs – New sightings of an animal that can only be described as the â€˜Chupacabraâ€™ have been reported in Las Vegas (New Mexico). Reports and sightings have popped up all over the city the past few weeks, pets have gone missing and State Police have responded to a call where locals claim they have seen â€œan evil blood-sucking creatureâ€. There’s even one report of the creature attacking a donut truck! So is the Chupacabra back? KRQE News 13 has a video report/interview with an eye-witness and two waitresses (Windows media player will be needed I’m afraid).
Bigfoot, Bigfoot, Bigfoot â€“ everybody seems to be going Bigfoot crazy. The 2005 Texas Bigfoot conference appears to have been a huge success, media coverage at this years (5th) annual event was high. The Associated Press fired off an article, and due to the normal stories of doom and gloom, it seems to have been picked up by a worldwide audience. The local Mayor has even proclaimed that the third weekend of October will now be known as â€œTexas Bigfoot Weekendâ€ â€“ crazy! All we need now is some hard evidence to prove they really do exist… anybody fancy a trip to Texas?
