Come join Donna_in_India, her husband Sandy, daughter Kasha and riorich55 from the Chicago area as they initiate the inaugural VT meeting in Fargo, North Dakota.

Fargo, the name of a strange movie is the setting of this unique opportunity. Check out riorich55 meeting page for details.

    I'll have to see who Margie is. Donna and I had been talking on line and just coincidentally we were going to be in Fargo on the same day and obviously we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a VT dinner.

    Ha...Hi Rich...Margie(pronounced Margeeee) was a central figure in the movie...not sure what her real name is but she played the pregnant police officer in the movie..superbly I might add..have fun in Fargo...if I was close by Id join you.. :o)
    Ice cave is on the "Top of Europe" carved out of the glacier on Jaungfrau..check the vid if you like on Wengen pages..It was pretty cool...no pun intended..but really a slippery and unique experience..

    You got me. I've only seen bits and pieces of that movie, not really my style. I thought that the ice cave was probably Jungfrau. We were on the other side of the valley at Schilthorn on our trip. Enjoy the upcoming weekend.

    Its was certainly on the "dark side" but I thought well done and some great acting..and some lighter moments too..

    Thanks..a quiet weekend going on up here I think...I dont think the weather is going to co-operate..

    You guys have fun!!

    Look for pictures on my Fargo page in the weeks to come. Just saw a couple of the Switz videos you did. Any other travels for you this year.

    My business trips over the next 6 weeks take me to Fargo, Sioux Falls and Waterloo.

    Vacation with my wife shortly thereafter to Napa Valley, Yosemite and San Francisco. Going to be in San Francisco on Halloween and also their celebration of the Day of the Dead. Should be interesting.

    My daughter is getting married next year and we haven't seen the majority of Europe so it is probably quite a few years away.

    I'm on my way to Oshkosh right now Rich, and I'll be there until Tuesday morning and then I'll probably hang out in Walcott, Iowa for a day. Maybe I'll run into you along your way back!

    Oops, I remember you writing me that you were going to be in Iowa, I guess it was longer ago than I thought!

    No, Ill be in Iowa toward the end of September and beginning of October. I've spent a lot of time there in 2002 and 2003 testing and then training our drivers on new handheld computers. That's when I was also in your industry, riding along with the drivers and helping out as they made deliveries. Boy, was I in good shape then.
