Journeys of Exploration & Discovery


Getting a newsletter out during summer is always a challenge, but this month I also spent a week in Shreveport for the travel industry's most innovative marketplace:  TAP Dance.  As always, the schedule was hectic, the appointments productive and the hospitality was great!  And as a result we have a lot of new destinations and unique travel experiences to share with you, here and in the months to come.

September 22-27, 2012


Excitement for this fall's adventure is mounting, so if you had this departure on your radar, better get those registrations in soon.  This unique program features five nights in the same hotel, a ride on the famous 1880 Train, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorials, Badlands National Park, historic Deadwood, Kevin Costner's Tatanka, and of course, beautiful Custer State Park. Your knowledgeable step-on guide will lend insights to the sights throughout this one-of-a-kind program.

Supplier Spotlight


Custer House
There are certain places where we happily return time after time because of the unfailing hospitality and quality experience they provide.  This month's spotlight shines on Fort Abraham Lincoln near Mandan, North Dakota.  The living history reeanctors here convince you that Lt. Col. Custer and his lovely wife have just stepped out for a horseback ride on the prairie and will return momentarily.  Fort Abraham Lincoln is a state park - and with the adjacent On-A-Slant earth lodge village - provide an outstanding learning experience wrapped in an entertaining package.
What If?


What if
Teddy Roosevelt's name is closely tied to
North Dakota, and he treasured the years he spent here and the lifelong friendships made.  He even went so far as to claim that he wouldn't have become president if weren't for those formative lessons learned on his beloved Little Missouri ranch.  But did you know that he also influenced a great deal more of American history and was critical in the development of our national park system?
Feel free to contact us with any questions at 800-888-8306.


We look forward to seeing you on the trail this season.


Happy Trails!
