Quote of the Month

The joy of travel is not the sights and not necessarily doing it right. It's having fun with the process, being wonder-struck with a wider world, laughing through mistakes and learning from them, and making friends along the way.

It's that time of year again, when winter grudgingly makes way for new growth and gentler temperatures.  Makes you want to get up and go, and this month's newsletter brings you more suggestions for satisfying that travel itch.  Speaking of which, I was a guest on BlogTalk Radio's weekly Travel Itch podcast March 17, hosted by Dan Schlossberg and Helen Hatzis.  If you'd like to listen-in to learn more about us and upcoming tours on the docket, here's a link.

Lewis & Clark Trail  Fort Manda, North Dakota 
July 15-30, 2016

Stepping back in time is more fun when you make the voyage with others who share the same interests.  Join fellow trail buffs this summer as we follow in the wake of the Corps of Discovery from St. Louis to the Pacific.

Aug. 13-18, 2016

America was shaped by the 19th century phenomenon of westward expansion - the largest land migration in world history.  Explore Mormon Trail sites, visit important milestones along the Oregon Trail, and walk in actual wagon ruts which have survived more than a century of sun, wind and weather.

What began as a conservation project to prevent the extinction of the pre-historic mammals in their care, is today Custer State Park's signature event.  Make plans now to join in the fun, plus visit iconic Black Hills sights including Mount Rushmore, historic Deadwood, 1880 Train, Crazy Horse and Badlands National Park.

Anticipation is part of the fun when planning upcoming vacation getaways.  But don't wait too long to book.  You will note that the schedule changes dramatically from month to month as popular departures fill quickly.
