I thought the meetings went from the 3rd Saturday to the 4th Saturday, when did they move to the 5th Saturday?

Nancy — mea culpa. You’re right — 4th Saturday not last Saturday. I think I conflated 4th Saturday with last Saturday. To avoid confusion as it’s already announced as 2/29, let’s keep it there for February and then fix it in March. Doug has a good idea for a topic, so if you have ideas about alternative tours, bring ‘em.

Hi Patricia, I am very interested in taking a RS Tour, but have not yet done so. Is this group open to would be travelers like me?

Hi, Kathleen. You’re very welcome to attend our group meetings. Although we have loosely gathered under the umbrella of Rick Steves tours, our discussions are by no means limited to tours operated by his company. In fact, this month we will be discussing alternative tours. I, myself, will be traveling to Poland in a few weeks to volunteer at an English language immersion camp, and others in our group will be talking about other types of travel. We are just people who love to travel. If you have questions about specific Rick Steves tours, many of us in the group have taken tours by his company and would be happy to answer your questions. Please come. We would love to meet you!

Hey Patricia,
Great to meet you and everyone else in the group. I learned a lot about alternative travel opportunities from Doug and others. I look forward to retiring soon and taking some of those 30-90 day long adventures in Europe you all described. Everyone's knowledge and experience was so helpful and can make such a difference when traveling.
Thanks again
Scott
