What's your most memorable OUTLANDER-related experience?
What's the most memorable, interesting, amusing, or unusual experience you've had as a result of reading Diana Gabaldon's books or watching the OUTLANDER TV series?
Here are three of my favorites:
1) Visiting Scotland in 2012 on the Celtic Journeys OUTLANDER Tour. That was the trip of a lifetime for me, and I had a wonderful time!
2) Attending Diana Gabaldon's appearance in Annandale, VA, in April, 2013. (Here I am with Carol and Tracey of My Outlander Purgatory.) At the point in Diana's talk where she mentions how she got involved with the online forum that is now the Compuserve Books and Writers Community, Diana looked right at me and said to the audience of about 1200 fans, "The fabulous Karen Henry manages my folder on Compuserve. She's the bumblebee-herder." And I turned around and waved to the crowd. <g>
2) When the standalone e-book edition of Diana Gabaldon's novella, "The Custom of the Army", was published in May, 2012, I was stunned and delighted to find that Diana had dedicated the story to me! (The terms "Aedile Curule" and "Chief Bumblebee-Herder" refer to my role as volunteer Section Leader in Diana Gabaldon's folder on Compuserve, a position I've held since 2008.)
