DALE . . . "I now have visited over a hundred countries expecting to hit 130 or so by age 80 in 2022. I have been to all 50 states and all seven continents on 52 foreign trips."

Gulliver's Travels starts with Dale's trip to "The South Pacific" He worked hard to put this first Travelog together. I personally loved the trip! I hope you do too! Future trips will be published as they occur in a "Travelog" format. It's kind of like going along with Dale. Believe me . . . It's fun!
