February  2017

If the winter doldrums are getting you down, it's time to start thinking about springtime travel.  We have a number of  flings, festivals and fiestas to tempt your wanderlust in this month's TAP into Travel listings.  Check them out! 
And happy trails!

Show Me Missouri!

Ever wondered how Missouri came to known as the "Show Me" state?  There are several possible explanations, all dating back to the late 1890's.  And all portraying Missouri natives as skeptics who demand proof.
Mark Twain, of course is Missouri's favorite son, and his boyhood home in Hannibal is one of many sites that we'll explore on this all Missouri tour.   Find out more.

Circle Oregon & the Rose Festival

Portland's famous Rose Test Garden is celebrating 100 years this year.  Just another good reason to explore Oregon's beautiful and diverse land. The mountains are majestic, the famous coastline is unsurpassed, and the fertile valleys bring culinary delights and fine wine. Come see what Oregon has to offer!

Lewis & Clark Trail
 July 14-29

We are drawing closer to our 15 passenger minimum on this adventure of a lifetime, but we're not there yet!  If you sent for a registration packet (and many of you have), you know you want to go!  Please fill out that form and send it back in.  And if you haven't yet requested one, there's no time like the present!  Don't miss this opportunity to experience what Thomas Jefferson called the greatest adventure in American history.

Legendary North Dakota Medora Musical
August 12-19
North Dakota is traditionally the 50th state Americans check off their bucket list.  But if this will be your first visit to North Dakota, you'll wonder why you waited so long!  Included on this itinerary are three authentic white buffalo, a Viking ship, historic forts and trading posts, Native culture, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, plus the Medora Musical - the greatest show in the West! 

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!
