A group meeting in London on the night before we leave (Sept 9) starts us off. T-shirts, nametags, dog tags are handed out. Jsu keeps everyone laughing, providing a visual depiction of a hotel room key, and introduces the theme of the trip: Gratitude. Nicholas Brown beams and handles logistics.
We leave on Sept 10 for Bovey Castle, a bus to a train to a bus through the dazzlingly green English countryside, and join for dinner where John Morton calls in the Light. The next day is a free day before the Founders Dinner starts on Sept 12.
