Finland, 1985
September 1985. 14 days

In 1985 I traveled to Finland, flying FinnAir from Los Angeles, to visit the Friends of Finnish Handicraft. The School of Fine Arts at The University of Montana had commissioned the FFH to weave a tapestry in the form of a traditional Finnish rya and as the only weaver in the school, I got to go to Helsinki to see the work in progress and meet with the woman charged with weaving what would turn out to be the largest rya in the world, 20 feet x 30 feet. It now hangs in the lobby of the Performing Arts-Radio-Television building on the UM campus in Missoula. While in Finland, I traveled to Turku, Hamelinna, Rovaniemi and Oulu, meeting with as many fiber artists as I could.

San Quintín, Mexico

Baja, 1972
April 1972. 2 days

Over Spring Break, 1972, I flew to Burbank, California, and met two Swiss friends for a camping trip to San Quintin, Baja California, Mexico. I trusted my friends to do all the planning, and they expected camping in Mexico to be similar to camping in Europe. WRONG! The trip was an interesting disaster, and we only spent one day driving to San Quintin, then back again--before the Baja Highway had been completed.
