What we're about

There have been many requests for a travel group, and I will plan many outings that involve day or weekend trips, plus local events. We will focus on activities that our significant others may not be as enthusiastic about as we are - shopping comes to mind! There are many places to explore within driving distance, and some of us may want to travel to far away places with great food, wine and culture. We may even invite the men, at times!

We will have some social events for getting to know each other better, but this group will focus on travel. I will research high quality restaurants, accommodations, and activities, even if it is just for a day trip. I'm not a travel agent, so I am not planning these trips for profit, or to be like a tour group. I'm looking for travel companions who also may not have any, so we can explore the destinations together. For that reason, the focus of this group is to stay together on trips. I'm not booking rooms so everyone can go off on their own. There will be free time, and I will also ask for suggestions in advance for each trip we take, so I can plan the schedule and make restaurant reservations. I want to do most of the planning in advance because these are my vacations too, and I would like to enjoy the time we are there. Many of these trips will be planned around events and festivals, so we have a focus for our trip. While we have free time when we're away on longer trips, we will explore the unique shopping areas of that town, and do some sight seeing. This is an active group, so keep in mind that many trips will involve quite a bit of walking. I look forward to the fun times we will have together!

Clue (play at Centre Stage)

Needs a location


I will be going to Clue at Centre Stage!
The price of this Meetup is for one ticket in the center section, row E, including service charges. We will meet in the lobby at 7:45. One beverage is included (beer, wine, water, or soda). I hope to see you there!

Weekend in Atlanta

Needs a location


There is a new Club Wyndham resort in Atlanta that opens in July, so I planned a long weekend around the concert of one of my favorite bands, Tedeschi Trucks. They play classic blues influenced rock, and the guitarists are married to each other. One is the son of the drummer of the Allman Brothers Band, and the other is one of the best female guitarists around! I am not charging to stay in my timeshare, so the price of this Meetup is only for the concert ticket (I have great seats at the Fox Theatre). This unit is a studio with two beds, living area, kitchenette, and bathroom. It is the largest size unit this location offers. We can go to anything interesting in Atlanta while we are there, and try some good restaurants. You must be willing to drive our car pool, and be comfortable driving at night. Let me know if you have any questions.

Ghost, Mastodon & Spiritbox in Asheville!

Needs a location


I have great seats for Ghost with Mastodon and Spiritbox, at the Harrah's Cherokee Center! We will car pool from Greer at noon, have lunch locally, and then drive to Asheville, NC, to check into the DoubleTree, where we will be staying overnight. We will have time before the concert to walk around downtown Asheville, and have some food and beverages, before walking over to the concert.
Hotel checkout is noon on Monday, September 5th. We will have lunch in Asheville, and can stay as long as we like. The price of this Meetup is for one concert ticket, section 223, row E. I will pay for the hotel room for the driver of the car pool. Let me know if you have any questions.

Hilton Head Vacation!

Needs a location


I have a three bedroom unit reserved at Island Links Resort - Palmera Vacation Club Destination (islandlinkshhi.com)
The price of this Meetup is for double occupancy per bedroom. If you want an entire bedrooom, or want to bring a guest, add +l where it asks if you are bringing a guest. The person who drives our car pool will get to stay for free if they want a shared room, or will get an entire bedroom for the price posted (do not volunteer if you have a problem driving at night, or cannot seat four in your car). Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you can join us!
