The e-tour has officially begun! After months of anticipation, we traveled from Baton Rouge to our Boulder, Colorado rendezvous with Leave No Trace tour coordinator extraordinaire, Dave Winter. We spent several busy days meeting with the friendly and dynamic Leave No Trace staff, and getting oriented to our e-tour Subaru Tribeca & Coleman E-1 pop-up camper, which will be our home-on-wheels for the next four months.
Then, on Wednesday the real fun began. We drove with Dave Winter to Camp Sacajawea located high in the mountains overlooking Casper, Wyoming and gave a presentation to an enthusiastic group of girl scouts. The girls were eager and active participants throughout the presentation. It was a great experience for our first e-tour presentation.
Throughout the tour we will be asking our audiences to help define the “e” in e-tour. The Camp Sacajawea group added the words “elated” and “everybody” to our “e” list, and they were “excellent” hosts indeed for our first workshop.
Hope to see you on our travels,
Barrett and Peggy
