Adventure Speaker Series - Dirk & Dixie Havlak: 9 Months Across America

Olympia Branch Meet the Mountaineers Adventure Speaker Series & Potluck featuring "Dirk & Dixie Havlak: 9 Months Across America" Dirk & Dixie Havlak set off in a small RV on September 25, 2013, from Olympia, WA to see as many National Parks and other exciting natural areas of the US as possible. Nine months later, they have hiked, biked, and canoed from the Southwest all the way to the tip of Florida, up to Maine and across the Northern U.S. back to Washington. Come see what they discovered on their journey!
