HOTT Conference 2009 Begins

Everyone has arrived safe and sound, and our annual conference in Eagar, AZ is now underway!

Our featured guest, Michael Cremo, author of “Human Devolution” and “Forbidden Archeology” is currently back on stage after captivating us with his research this morning, and chatting with our attendees over a casual lunch in the stunning White Mountains.

Later this afternoon, our attendees will visit the Little Bear Dig site, the subject of our documentary “The Fourth World: When Humanity Murders God“.  Charles Rand, the curator, and Michael Cremo both will be onsite to address inquiries regarding the site itself and how the finds discovered there compliment their research.

We miss those of you who were unable to attend, and send our prayers out to those whose health prevented their attendance.

More updates as the week progresses.


  1. It’s party time!

    It was a great day here at the HOTT Conference 2009! We spent the day with good eats, good friends, and listening to Michael Cremo and Charles Rand talk Forbidden Archaeology and Southwestern History. And right now we’re hangin’ on the porch in the crystal clear White Mountain air and enjoying a relaxing evening.

    See y’all in the mornin’!

  2. Tuesday, September 22, 2009, 7:35 AM — start of HOTT Conference day two…

    After a nice run with my pups, I am making way toward our meeting room to get this day’s itinerary. This year it’s all about Urban Craft… This ought to be good…

  3. Hey Y’all!

    Sounds like a great time. Hope you have a good week. Wish I could be there with ya. Maybe next year. Congrats to all who made it for such a wonderful opportunity. Reports?

    Best Regards,

  4. Yesterday our classes got underway. Doyel Shamley gave a talk on emergency preparedness on the classroom based on a simple thought: What is necessary for life? The class proceeded to answer the question with their own ideas about what is necessary for life and the discussion expanded into a long, complete list of essentials and ideas that will be put to use as we go along.

    Late afternoon we had a second to none self defense course.

    Dinner was a fantastic beef and elk fajitas smorgasboard cooked by our own chef. No fast food or commercial catering junk for the HOTT Crew, thank you very much, fresh, choice delectables only, please.

    The age range here at the conference is early twenties to mid seventies. Everyone is friendly and eager to learn new skills. There is something good for everyone here.

    Well, it is Wednesday morning and I am about to head up to the meeting hall to find out about the day’s events. I don’t read itinerary’s. I like it to be a surprise.

  5. Wednesday 23 September 2009, 2:38 PM

    Desperado Joe and Wolf from Nebraska: we just now returned from Cooper’s resting place. Your stones were placed by Doyel personally, and we got video and pictures.

  6. Awesome. Cant wait to see it. Sounds like you guys are having an awesome time. But that’s cool because of the April Conference in PA. It wont be beautiful Arizona but at least we’ll get the valuable information.


  7. HOTT Conference 2010 will be held here at the XDiamond Ranch 3-8 October 2010!

    Start making your plans now!

  8. Well, Folks, it’s Friday, the start of the last day of the conference (boo! hoo!), and things will be getting underway very soon. It has been an incredibly active and exhausting week. So much to learn and so little time! All of our instructors have been great, and everyone got along very well. Success!

    It has been difficult to stop in here and post during this busy week, and I am about to join the others for class. If anyone has any questions they would like to ask, requests they would like to make, etc., before the conference is over, post them here before the day is out and I will get them to Doyel.

    Meantime here is a a killer Web site on Freemasonry introduced to the conference yesterday. This site is a must see! http://www.Freemasons-freemasonry.com

    Have a great day!
