During our January PATHNORTH gathering in New York, we unveiled an exciting, new initiative called PATHNORTH Experiences. The thinking behind this effort is to gather various PATHNORTH members to participate in some pretty unusual and exciting things that will, in turn, cause us to think differently about ourselves and our world. These times will be quite unique in and of themselves, but the underlying value will be the chance to process and have conversations of significance both formally and informally around our events. Each year, we intend to host at least two such PATHNORTH Experiences, one on the east coast and the other on the west.

The first such experience was held April 2-4 in Norfolk, Virginia.

The former Secretary of the Navy and PATHNORTH Board member, John H. Dalton, arranged for a small group of us to spend two days onboard the carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt in the Atlantic. This experience included a private tour of an active submarine, a private dinner with the Commander of the U.S. Fleet Forces, Jonathan Greenert and other leaders, a flight out to the carrier on a C-2 including a 'tail hook' landing on the deck of the carrier and an overnight stay aboard the ship.

Steve Case, Secretary Dalton, Admiral Greenert and Doug Holladay organized and hosted twelve PATHNORTH Members at this singular gathering.

PATHNORTH member David Rogers from San Antonio, Texas summed up the sentiments of the group in the following letter:
