Am I ready yet?
Oct 30, 2013
|Just to do a brief introduction of the players on this excursion-Here are the names and the small amount of information I have at the moment of the others on this trip.
Taryn-Portland, ME (our fearless leader)
and me, of course.
I met Betsy and Donna at the recent regional meeting for Dining For Women (DFW for ever more in these updates). I learned that Donna writes the Food for Thought every month for the education sessions (a HUGE job and one she does quite well) and is a librarian/wildlife photographer, Betsy is also a social worker and an avid bicyclist (she just did a big tour around Crater Lake this summer) as well as a great program planner-as that was her job for the conference.
We have 2 physicians in the group (Susan and Martha) and Debbie is a retired teacher. Heather is an artist and educator and Tina has taught yoga for 30 years and does a lot of international traveling in humanitarian efforts. Taryn our coordinator has a travel business and previously was a wilderness trek leader for adolescents. This is Taryn's second DFW trip coordination effort.
With such an interesting, well traveled group it will be an enlightening experience.
As to final preparation-my carry on bag is packed, my personal item is heavy and I am checked in for my flights (MFR to SFO to FRA to VIE) Let the adventure begin
