Hi, Becca - I posted this invite last year prior to my trip. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend this year. I hope you have a great time - I certainly did last year!

I am interested in this program. Is there anyone who is also interested that lives near Vermont so that we could drive across country together? I am a retired college professor.

Hello, Terry. So far all who have registered are from the west coast. I will keep an eye out for anybody driving from the east coast.

Hi Terry. I'm from Northern Mich. but found it was cheaper to fly. I will look forward to meeting you. Safe travels!
