Bill Jones, Bisher Alissa, and Brad Hansen mentioned future trips to Algeria and Chad. Wow! Definitely off the beaten path. Aside from all the usual caveats related to Covid-19, I’m excited. Besides which, my wife and I would enjoy traveling with Bill again.

Hi Tracy, I’m down to lead the October 2020 and September 2021trips to Algeria. It would be a delight travelling with you and Jerri once again. I hope you are both well and thriving despite the current problems. Fondest regards, Bill

I traveled with Ishee in Mongolia. One of the highlights of my life; a trip I will always cherish and never forget! He was wonderful! He visited with us in Alaska three years later and we had a great time.
