Jesse Weaver at MSP Airport April 1 2009
This is the Kilians Red that Jess is sipping as we share stories over European Maps. Here I have a map from the trip Sue and I took back in 1977. We left on Aug 16 on World Airways (Charter?) and arrived at Gatwick, staying on Russell Square London, with a side trip to Scotland. We met Herbert and Birgit Kaiser in Koblenz and then visited Steinwenden Pfalz where the Eicher family lived prior to emigration in 1833. Franz Eicher and family walked from Germany to Le Havre and took a 3 master to Baltimore and then he staying in Hagerstown MD for two years, prior to walking the National Pike to Ohio. It is during that time we visited Jacques and Michelle Gravier in Poitiers France as well before returning to Minnesota on Sept 7. Jess and Ted will be touring Europe via Eurail and I lookforward to reading his blog.
