By John Hertz: With the help of my counterpart, the Australia–New Zealand DUFF Administrator Bill Wright, plus travel wizard Robin Johnson, electronic liaison Jeanne Bowman, and a host of others, an itinerary for the 2014 Down Under Fan Fund delegate Juanita Coulson has been arranged.
Coulson lives in London — Ohio. Therefore she goes not east, but west; and, as 1985 DUFF delegate Marty Cantor fears none will know if not said, also south.
She visits Auckland (New Zealand), Melbourne and Sydney (Australia).
Uncertain of guitar chances, she brings a thumb-piano. In any event she is reputed to have outsung a steamboat.
She crosses the International Date Line as well as time zones. I give local hours and days.
