Take a trip back to 1978 as Rick and his old friend (and frequent collaborator) Gene Openshaw take us down the "Hippie Trail." Looking back at the best trip of their lives, Rick and Gene will share photographs and stories from an epic adventure that took them from Istanbul to Kathmandu, with lots of exciting stops along the way. Tonight's menu will reflect the humble food that kept the two 23-year-olds fed and happy — chai tea, melons, and bread — but it'll be a great party! Come along for the adventure of a lifetime.
Registration is required but doesn't guarantee admission. These are popular events, and seats can fill up quickly.
