completed THREE very successful summer Adventure Trips! First was
Schooner sailing trip in Maine; next whitewater rafting trip on the
Ocoee in Tennessee, followed by a second on Chattooga River in North
Georgia. For one we stayed in quaint cabins in the woods, for the

we ate like Kings & Queens, we played hard & exercised hard,
all while experiencing great comradery!
