***  Fellow travelers and wonder-seekers…

I like to include content in YVNS that encourages us to get out and see the world, experience nature, and connect with our fellow human beings all over this magnificent planet.  This is an unsettling time, however.  My family and I should be in Singapore right now, on our way to Bali.  But, instead, like you, we are home and hunkered down for the duration of the stay-at-home directives.  For now, we can read about places we’d rather be.  And we can always dream.

Share your bucket list with your fellow next-steppers.  Send me a list of the five places you really want to go to and the things you want to do and I’ll share in the YVNS newsletter.  It’s okay to dream right now!  Send your bucket list to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

***  If you are not receiving this newsletter via the new Google Groups list, contact Ned at lundquist989@cs.com to get on the list for YVNS distribution.

 

“Your Very Next Step” adventure/outdoors/conservation newsletter, published by Ned Lundquist, is a cooperative community, and everyone is invited, no…encouraged, no…urged to participate.   Share your adventures with the network today!  Send to lundquist989@cs.com.
