Hi. Wanted to meet anyone going on the September 18-October 4, 2014 trip. My wife Cathy and I would like to get acquainted before the trip.

Stephanie Finch Aug 12, 2014 at 12:46 PM

Is anyone going on the October 1-17, 2014 trip? My friend and I are traveling from Michigan and meeting up with my mother in law (from New Jersey) and my sister in law (from Texas)
Marcia Miller Aug 24, 2014 at 04:53 PM

I'm going on this trip with 3 friends. Leaving from JFK, so we will probably be on the same plane as your mother-in-law

Ooh! That's great! Looking forward to meeting you! Is this your first road scholar trip?
Marcia Miller Aug 25, 2014 at 02:02 PM

I did a Road Scholar trip to Australia and New Zealand. Wonderful trip! I have also done a couple of intergenerational trips with my grandchildren. I highly recommend those!
Stephanie Finch Aug 25, 2014 at 07:42 PM

Looks like my mother in law (and sister in law) are flying out of Newark!

Evelyn Comstock Apr 03, 2014 at 08:06 PM
