|Sat May 16||Three Men in a Hupp - driving around the world||Walter Hodge|
|Sat May 30||China||Rick Land|| "Immediately after retiring in January of 2019, I went to China for 6 weeks â€“ by myself. The first 4 weeks I spent studying Mandarin at a language school in Shanghai, during which time I lived with a local family. My final two weeks I spent being a solo tourist, first to Harbin in the frigid northern reaches for the annual Ice and Snow Festival, then off to Xi 'an to see the famed Terracotta Warriors.
While there will be photos of some of China 's scenic wonders, my slides and talk will focus primarily on some of the challenges and rewards of solo travel in China, daily life with a Chinese family, and interesting cultural phenomena I encountered along the way. "
