Announcing the new Ted Simon Foundation

Having the honor of hosting the delightful Ted Simon at Overland Expo in 2010, 2011 (and 2012), we are extra pleased to announce the new Ted Simon Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Northern California. The Foundation was created by a group of people who believe that individuals of good will, moving among foreign cultures and making themselves vulnerable to the beliefs and customs of strangers, have great importance in promoting world understanding, and even more so when they can distill the essence of their experiences into a form that can be absorbed by many.

The purpose of the Foundation is to encourage and assist travellers in making an extra effort to develop their observations and insights into something of value for the rest of the world to share, whatever their medium of expression might be. You can contribute to the Foundation, or apply to be a Jupiter's Travler. Find out more at
