Notes on North America Study Tour 2004

A unique group of 44 embarked on a spectacular 8,000 km journey of North America. We consist of the usual and yet amazing array of fascinating people. Isn’t nature wonderful? We are learning of the adventuresome Beeck’s, the skilled yarns of Daniel Morgan, the keen mind of Bec Ifould, the politeness of John Doncon, the great people skills of Zoe Fulwood and the willingness of David Cook to pre-empt problems. Not to mention the great energy of Jim – our bus driver! When we eventually found him at the airport . . .
