This month, the Roving Reporter asked: What is your fondest vacation memory?

“A trip to Colorado in the 80’s with my church group. I learned how to ride the rapids when we went white water rafting.”

– Kelley Koobs, undergraduate student

“August is very hot, right? One would head to a swimming pool to cool off. But I chose to go to Egypt, which was very hot, but I ended up having a blast doing the Nile River and pyramids.”

– Norma Moran, coordinator of planning, assessment, and accreditation, Office of Assessment

“My friends and I went camping in Fairmont Hot Springs, British Columbia, in my 1968 Chevy truck. We wanted to camp at a spot up the mountain, but the truck was not strong enough to go up, so we decided to drive back to camp. Unfortunately, I had no brakes, which made taking any hills very tricky. Finally we made it (the truck stopped) and we refilled the brake fluid.”

– Brent Klassen, senior payroll specialist, Human Resources Services

“My favorite vacation memory was the Shriners’ convention in New Orleans, La. in 2005–a few weeks before Hurricane Katrina hit. My sister, niece, and nephew went on vacation with my elderly parents. We saw old friends, met new friends, and spent time together the way we had done every summer as we were growing up when we attended Shriners’ conventions around the country. The New Orleans convention was the most memorable. It was the last time we were able to vacation as an entire family because my father passed away a few years after that. It was like old times, and I will never forget our family time together.”

– Genie Chisholm, coordinator of support services, Student Services, Clerc Center
