John’s aunt, Ronnie Bendheim, wanted to do something special to send her nephew and the rest of the team off in the right way. She graciously hosted a brunch earlier this morning at her home to help many of her friends and many of Gerda’s friends to understand and become supporters of the Journey. There was a buzz of excitement as guests offered their tidbits of road trip advice. John recounted the journey it has already been to get ready to launch this epic adventure. Many details have fallen into place in a way that can only be called “meant to be.” Our founder, Gerda, reminded us all of the great joys and freedoms of American citizenship, which she adores with such an inspiring passion. A great day was had by all, and the journeyers are itching to go!
