    My family went when I was 10. I loved the whole experience. Not sure why now that I think about it, but I have a good feeling when I think back. We went to the Watchtower Farms and I got to play with the little piglets and we saw the Stanley theatre after it was revamped. I tasted Lobster for the first time. The NY skyline was amazing. Out tour guide at Bethel was hot.

    I didn't have the desire. I also didn't have the desire to snag a elder or MS for a hubby either.

    Isn't that like a there being a Muslin not wanting to make a trip to Mecca?

    I did when I was really little, I was so embarrassed by the bad artwork in the literature that I thought they really needed help. I was going to grow up and go do good artwork for the Society.

    Then I got a little older and found out that only boys could go. That really pissed me off. I never, EVER, considered it a "vacation destination".

    I am so sorry Baba....sexism sucks

    When I was a wee little girl my Elders wanted me to be the female version of Hayden Covington.....

    Then I moved to a lower level KH and the Elders laughed and said only boys were allowed too......

    I passed out pictures of Carolyn Wah when she started representing the WTS....they were soooo shocked !

    I have been - but I never longed for it and could not see what the big attraction was or what all the fuss was about. I mean - you go to New York City -and there are so many things to do , Brooklyn Bethel was very low on my list of priorities -same when visiting London - I steer well clear of Mill Hill
