Notes about upcoming Ice Mountain field trip:

A field trip honouring Larry has been scheduled for June 9 at 10 a.m. to 
Ice Mountain in WV.  The distance from Winchester is farther than was said 
in the earlier email about the trip.  Sally Anderson, who lives in 
Winchester, reported: "The distance is nearly 30 miles from downtown 
Winchester or 25 miles from Rt. 50 and Rt. 37."

Here is Steve Bailes' page about visiting Ice Mountain:

Further details will be provided at a later date.
