The Indiana Chapter had another excellent meeting on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013. During the reception, the members and their guests told anecdotes about their most interesting travels and, in general, shared experiences with like-minded fellow travelers.

After a fine lunch, the group of 26 split into three tables to trade responses to several travel questions, such as: What was your most exciting trip experience to date? What was your most dangerous travel experience? What was your most humorous travel experience? Assuming you set travel goals, describe how you go about the process. How do you like to travel? What was your most embarrassing moment traveling? Have you had any unusual border crossings?

The attendance was more than double that of our prior two meetings and was due to a very nice article about TCC that appeared on the front page of the Metro Section of The Indianapolis Star the day before the meeting. It generated a lot of interest in TCC and we have several potential new members. Here is a link to the article.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 8, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Seasons 52 restaurant. It is located at 8650 Keystone Crossing, which is close to I-465 on the north side of Indianapolis. TCC members and their guests are invited. RSVPs should be sent to Frank Basile at or phoned to (317) 578-3585.

The program will be about Antarctica and will be presented by Charles Williams, who has been there seven times and is a TCC Gold member and is ranked #1 in Indiana by the Most Traveled People website. Charles notes that this destination may be tough to get to, but is well worth the effort, as he will highlight during his talk.
