40 years after the trip, I was recognized by a friend whom I did not know at the time. I am am the tall person with my back turned. I remember the trip well. Dave England was driving the bus and I don’t know if the kids that came back with our kids knew what hit them. The trip was never to be repeated as I think the Portland kids were so full of stories about hippie living that it was just too much for the two school districts, I know the kid we housed had never seen an outhouse or such rough living conditions. It was an adventure for her, though she might’ve appreciated greater creature comforts.
