Cancelled due to living quarters overrun by Racoons - first time for that. I was really looking forward to this program.

Love to hear comments. I live in Southern Indiana and thought this would be a great way to start my adventures with this program.

his is a very enjoyable program for anyone who is interested in this topic. The four full days included two days with lectures/demonstrations related to Indiana covered bridges and other local interests (such as local music and art). Each presenter was a long-time area resident with very strong ties to this area of Indiana. The other two days were spent with a local historian who accompanied our bus trip to the bridges and then a full day free to explore and shop at the Covered Bridge Festival. Although the program is accurately rated with a "2" activity rating, there is sufficient free time to enjoy walks on the lovely campus for those who want more exercise. The accommodations in an older campus guest house were simple but comfortable, and the meals were very adequate. The program coordinator did an excellent job of assuring that all aspects of the program ran smoothly. As with all Road Scholar programs, getting to know the other participants is always one of the week's highlights. Pictures are posted at http://eknesper.kodakgallery.com.

I would like to ask if there is another female going on this trip who would like to share a room for the double occupancy rate? This is my first roadscholar trip.
