Discussion Summary

Technology Gadgets and Travel are the topics of discussion this month by the San Francisco Explorers.

Per the usual order of business, reports of what is of interest to the members heads up the agenda.

 

Tech Gadgets

  • Vision Focus: In the form factor of a pair of glasses, this is 100% adjustable for short- and far-sighted people by using dials on the sides that turn to adjust to correct the wearer's vision.
  • Koret Track Watch - Tracks Heart rate, calories burned, sleep, and activity. 
  • LifeVac Anti-choking device - self rescue portable suction device to clear airway obstruction - suitable for children or adults in a choking emergency.

 

 Travel Options

  • Stitch!  Member AnnieScott describes her experience using www.stitch.net to find like-minded travelers and arrange trips.
  • Road Scholar www.roadscholar.org (used to be Elderhostel) has lots of trips, lectures, and courses.  
  • OAT (overseas adventure travel) or their sister company or Grand Circle Tours

Throughout the meeting members had their say on topics they thought were interesting and which they brought up when asked. Their abiding interest in travel options tuned to the needs and interests of people in later life continues to be a popular topic.
