Trip: The Sooner Than Later Road Trip
Date: October 2020
Tumbleweed Tours took a group of members age 55 and older on a five-day trip through Oklahoma. The tour divided travelers into three groups of 10 with two trips going in August and one in October for a total of 31 travelers. The Oklahoma road trip stopped in Oklahoma City, Pawhuska and Tishomingo. The group explored Drummond Ranch, where the creator of “The Pioneer Woman” blog and television show gives tours.
“Our third stop was to the famed Drummond Ranch near Pawhuska. We went to the Mercantile restaurant there to enjoy some delicious food. Our final stop was in Tishomingo, where Blake Shelton’s cafe and bar Ole Red is located. This was the perfect country trip to lift up our spirits. We have several more small-numbered group trips planned for 2021.”

Trip: Jewels of Lake Superior

The Golden Years Club explored Bayfield and Ashland, Wisconsin, on a four-day tour of the state’s Northwoods area. The tour included Madelyn Island, the Apostle Islands, the Great Northern Dinner Train and Copper Falls State Park.
“The beauty of Wisconsin’s Northwoods is unsurpassed. Our travelers experienced the blue waters crashing against majestic red cliffs as we traveled on our road trip to Wisconsin’s most northern location. We are still in awe of the clarity of Lake Superior, which allowed us to view sunken ships in depths of hundreds of feet. It felt like we could almost touch them.”
