2. If undecided..don't think about it, JUST GO!
Due to pre-planned family fun commitments, I have to pass on this trip. But based on a number of past trips--I urge anyone to make the journey. Not only can you make a statement--but you meet so many wonderful people in a common purpose.

Will miss you livvy and SharonRB!
