Hi everybody, I am registered for Jan 18, 2016, and plan to drive from New York City (departing early on 01/18). Anybody looking for a ride from NYC or a point between NYC and Craftsbury?

Hi, my husband and I are enrolled for Feb. 8-13 and are bringing our skates, hockey sticks and nerf-like ball. Yes! It is fun to play with this ball and we hope some of you hockey players would like to try it.

I am enrolled for the 1/19-23 program but will arrive on 1/20. Is anyone else in this situation? I have reserved transport from the airport for 1/20 at 4:40pm. Sheila

I'm going January 11-16, 2015. Anyone leaving from the NYC area?

This is my 6th RS trip, 1st to Vermont. All of the programs I have attended have been excellent. I always had fun and always learned something.

Kathleen McFadden Nov 19, 2014 at 07:28 PM

Is anyone else registered for Jan 19 - 23rd 2015. This is my first RS trip and I'd like to hear the experiences of others.

I'm also scheduled for the week of January 19-23, 2015, and it's also my first RS trip. I'm really looking forward to it. I've cross country skiied in the past, but it's been 10 years! And, I promise to be social ;-). I'm having a heck of a time with this list serv though! Looking forward to meeting you there.

Nice to know that there is at least one other person going! Where do you live?, I am just north of Boston. I do a lot of hiking, and generally get out xcskiing once or twice a year but am definatley a novice. My college age kids will be returning to school that weekend so I will be very ready for a few days away by myself.
Susan Wagner Jan 03, 2015 at 04:55 PM

Looks like our week is wait list only at this point, so we won't be by ourselves! I actually live in Newburyport, so we are almost neighbors. I work in North Andover. I lost my husband earlier in 2014, and now it's time for me to start traveling again. I have a son in grad school in Boston. I'm also a big walker.
Helene Sinany-MacLeod Nov 25, 2015 at 07:42 AM

Hi Kathleen, hi Susan, I am also registered for these dates. Looking forward to meeting you.
