Make it a September to Remember

What a great month—not too hot, not too cold and a time to begin creating new memories. Circumnavigators are back on the move and Chapters are gearing up for seasonal events. We wish all our members, families and friends a great month.

We had to show it…This writer exercises his editorial discretion to show a highly unusual venture.  Circumnavigators David and Dottie Mink (New York Metro and Naples Chapter) were vacationing in upstate Minnesota when they decided to take a side trip to Fargo, North Dakota. If you are familiar with the mystery/comedy Fargo, you probably remember the infamous wood chipper. Well, the actual wood chipper is in Fargo and the Minks got the chance to try it out.
