EVENTS  2019

Adventure Summit, Friday, March 29, 2019, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Wright State University, Dayton Ohio
Student Union, 3640 Colonel Glenn Hwy
"BACKPACKING ALONG THE GIANTS OF THE ALPS"
This is about hiking BELOW, not OVER, Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn, and Mont Blanc, finally crossing from Italy back into France, on parts of the TMB (Tour Mt. Blanc). Story, slides, anecdotes, enthusiasm, - and adjusting to our somewhat advanced age. Will they still make it "Back to Nice", to conclude their "Hike For Your Life" adventure?  

(Note, this is an "OFF"-year, i.e. no exhibits, just the lectures)
