Journeys of Exploration & Discovery


I just returned from the annual American Bus Association conference in Charlotte, NC, attended by 3,000 travel industry tour operators, suppliers & destinations!  The seminars, mingling and personal appointments are a great way to learn what's new in the industry so I can prepare better itineraries for you.  I can't wait to get started planning  for 2014 and beyond.

Lewis & Clark Update Missouri River earthlodge


Inquiries and requests for registration packets for the August 2-17 Lewis & Clark Trail program have increased since we announced this year's departure.  However, I'm afraid that inquiries or even requests for a registration packet don't count as bookings, and we need a minimum of 15 passengers to operate this program. The good news is that we're already half way there with seven months to go. If you have a packet but haven't returned your confirmation yet, please send it in.  Early bird discounts apply and you could be on your way to the experience of a lifetime! 
Legendary North Dakota West Dakota 


If you keep a list of all the states you have yet to visit, North Dakota is probably on it. You can check that one off, July 21-27, after you explore where the legends come alive!

What If?


What if

In my book, Lewis & Clark spent a great deal of their journey west pretty much lost.  Part of the fun of scrutinizing their expedition is learning about their near-misses, coincidences, separations and miraculous reunions (out in the middle of NOWHERE!)  Here's one that is often missed by the history books.

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!
