Traveler Social PDX – “Travelin Old Scool” Bon Voyage
Join us at our first in-person Traveler Social of the year. Socials are a great time to meet other travelers, swap stories, ask questions, gain inspiration, and simply have a good time. This traveler social will be extra special, as we will be wishing bon voyage to Andi & Kevin. These two have been regulars at our travel events for seven years. This spring they are heading off on a multi-year trip. Their plan is to drive from Alaska to Argentina in a converted school bus.
At this Traveler Social:
• See the Skoolie (converted bus)
• Learn how Andi & Kevin have prepped for a nomadic life
• Find out their “Travelin Old School” plans
• Ask questions
• Wish Andi & Kevin well
All this, plus you get to hang out with other travelers and talk about whatever you want. This social will also have travel games and prizes. Yes, I said PRIZES. Just for attending, you could win a copy of Andi Crockford’s inspirational travel book No Return Ticket, or the informative Before You Go Abroad Handbook by International Travel Coaches Shyla & Dan Bare.
This Traveler Social is FREE for passholders. To attend, simply claim your free ticket below. Not a passholder? Individual tickets are only $3 per person.
Since our guests of honor will be traveling soon, please do not come if you have any Covid-19 symptoms. Even though we are at an outside venue, please bring a mask and wear it when appropriate. No one may enter the converted bus without a mask. Due to current Covid restrictions, we also must continue to limit numbers. Only RSVP if you plan to be there. No showing will prevent an interested traveler from going.
PDX Venue: This in-person gathering will be in the yard at a private residence in the NE area of Portland, off Sandy Blvd. The exact location will be sent out in the confirmation email. The area is partially covered but not heated, dress accordingly. There is plenty of free street parking. Bring whatever you enjoy drinking (coffee, tea, juice, soda, etc.) and snacks if you want. If a Portland venue does not work for you, we do have a Vancouver gathering the same day in the afternoon. Look for a separate event listing for that.
Honored Guests: Andi & Kevin Crockford are world travelers and tour Guides with Kendi World Adventures. Andi is the author of No Return Ticket. This book chronicles their amazing two-year journey around the world. Andi & Kevin are also skoolie owners. A skoolie is a renovated school bus used to travel or live in. To follow their skoolie adventure from Alaska to Argentina go to Travelin Old Scool on Instagram.
Travel Social Facilitators: Shyla & Dan Bare are International Travel Coaches with Wild Spirit Travel. They started organizing travelers socials after moving to Portland at the end of a seven-year trip around the world. The goal was to connect with other like-minded travelers. At the gatherings they also realized they had lots of information to share so started doing private Travel Coaching sessions and wrote the bestselling Before You Go Abroad Handbook .
Fine Print: Refunds will only be made if the entire event is cancelled.
Please, do NOT come if you have any current Covid symptoms. We cannot guarantee that all attendees will be vaccinated–organizers are. On the day, we will be following Oregon or Washington State Covid protocols. Please be prepared and willing to follow guidelines for mask wearing and social distancing.
