Circumnavigators Norm and Susan Dailey (Washington DC Chapter) don’t let any grass grow under their feet. Having recently been in Egypt, they are currently on another trip to Saudi Arabia. They also plan to visit Lebanon and Cyprus. Norm will give us highlights of this ambitious trip in the next issue of The LOG.
