Another Stop For Carol Williams on Her Epic Road Trip

The Carol Williams Road Trip Makes A Stop in Danbury CT.

For those that have been following the adventure, Carol Williams is making a tour of the country that will ultimately take her 2 months to complete.  It was started out for her to play golf with the friends she has made on her Facebook group, Women Who Golf.

As I saw her itinerary, I reached out to her to see if we could connect when she was in Lenox, MA as it wasn't that bad of a drive for me to get there.  She instead changed her route to come down to Connecticut as it as on the way to her next stop in Philadelphia.

I suggested she stay in Danbury as it is a small detour and would be easier for her to continue her drive south.  

Well, I also reached out to a few Rainers here in the CT area and it was agreed that we would all gather and have an event, once known as a Meet-up.

The location was a Middle Eastern Restaurant called Kibberia, just down the road from the hotel where she was staying.

So this impromptu gathering was attended by Grant Schneider and his wife Phyllis (seated), George Souto, Dagny Eason, Carol and myself.

As the restaurant does mostly takeout, we almost had the place to ourselves. There was a lot of laughter, conversations about days past, a recount by Carol of where she has been and where she expects to go, and as happens when Active Rainers meet not an uncomfortable moment as all are connected like a family.

We know we will see each again on the Zoom calls, and as will be the case, we will also share the journey as Carol writes about her stops.  It's as though we are making the drive with her.

Ed Silva - Nice shout out for the Middle Eastern Restaurant Kibberia! It must have been an exceptional meet-up and I'm sure that the owners and staff were honored to serve your table and hear the laughter, good conversations, and to see smiles adorn their restaurant once more.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE®  Up here in CT no drive is too far for a Meet-up.  We even had Bob Crane attend a Meet-up at Dagny Eason  house and he lives in Wisconsin.
