Great Travelers: Charles A. Lindbergh

Today we honor...

Charles Augustus Lindbergh, nicknamed by the press “Lucky Lindy”, was the first person to fly solo non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927.  Lindbergh had never flown over open water before, yet he successfully navigated the 3,600-mile crossing with no navigational equipment!  He flew straight from Roosevelt Field in Long Island to Dingle Bay Ireland, then on to an airstrip just north of Paris France exactly as planned.  The historic landing strip where The Spirit of St. Louis touched down is a mere 13 miles from a current Evergreen Club member’s host home.  Whether you are traveling solo like Lindbergh ($15/night) or as a couple ($20/night), you can find Evergreen Club members in Long Island, Ireland, and France.

Make friends. Host well. Travel savvy.
