Another year is nearly gone and many if not most of us are enjoying retirement, so we'd thought we'd let you know more about the diverse and marvelous opportunities, joys, and choices for retirement among our classmates.  If you're doing something you'd like to tell us about, please let us hear from you. 
Classmate Steven Mayer, along with Susan Doherty, has spent several months (off and on) transversing the U.S. in a Vistabule Tear Drop Trailer.  For those who don't know, it's an extraordinarily compact yet comfortable home away from home.  Having seen it firsthand, we can vouch for it's versatility.  So, follow along in narrative and photographs with Steven and Susan as they travel from their home in Minnesota to points as far away as Alaska.   Along the way, you'll see some gorgeous scenery and learn a bit about local culture and history.   

Classmate Bob Maxwell will wow you as he keeps up his martial arts skills:
