  • PURPLE ROSE THEATER
    THIS TRIP HAS BEEN PUT ON HOLD DUE TO AN UNEXPECTED BUS PROBLEM.

         It's our first time visiting Jeff Daniels Purple Rose theater in Chelsea, MI. Rave reviews from theater goers make me wonder why we waited so long! Jeff wrote the production we are going to see and we're guaranteed a great show with very competent actors.
         Our day will include a specially guided tour of the Jiffy facility in Chelsea. Jiffy is famous world wide for their special cornbread mix.  We'll have a fabulous lunch at one of the top eateries in Chelsea, the COMMON GRILL.
         The production we'll see at the Jeff Daniels theater is called ROADSIGNS.     It is a beautiful, lyrical new play by Jeff Daniels. The play follows Lance, a young poet, as he embarks on a journey to find the way to himself. This nostalgic tale is filled with rich characters who dwell on the outskirts of life, each following a dream or hoping to bump into one. Original music by Jeff Daniels and Ben Daniels.
        After the theater performance, we'll head back towards home where we should arrive before dark.
         The trip includes lunch, the Jiffy tour, transportation, and the theater performance all for $89.

  • FORD ROUGE PLANT & MUSEUM
    "GO or NO" DATE IS FEBRUARY 1, 2020 ... let us know if you want to go!

    We were going to run this trip last summer, but an illness prevented us from doing so.  We vowed at the time that we would do it again!  I think you'll like this version as we'll be spending all of our time either at the factory or the museum with lunch included. 
    Come join us!

  • DETROIT TIGERS BASEBALL 6-PACK!

         Quite often people ask if we are going to do any Tiger ballgames this year.  We've tried before to do just that, but had very little response from baseball "fans".  The Tiger organization called a month or so ago and asked me to try it again ... so, here it is!
         We've added a new twist this year to the offer ... you can now buy 7 games for the price of six!
         We've also obtained seats in the shade (which is another request we often receive) 
         BOTTOM LINE: We need to hear from you soon or we will totally discard the idea for the year.

  • CARNIVAL SUNSHINE & FT CRUISE TO THE BAHAMAS!
    THIS TRIP IS A GO! SOME SEATS DO REMAIN ...

          If you are on, or are considering the May 8th cruise trip with FRANK TALK on the Road, this is very important information!
         In our final email offering, we stated that you would have to let me know if you wanted to go by January 15th.  
         Although that is basically true, we've already sold enough "cabins" (that is what they call them on the ship) that we only have two left that we can guarantee.  In all honesty, I wasn't told the first time that the cruise ship only allows a certain number of cabins to be sold to any one group.  After that number is reached, every sale is questionable.  
         Bottom Line is that we have two left that we can guarantee you can go.  We have plenty of room on the bus, but after those two are sold we cannot guarantee we can get you on the ship.  I can't imagine that they are so full that they would turn down the business, but that is what they're telling us.
         The trip is obviously a go, but there is now a sense of urgency if you want to be sure you will be on it!  
         I've also been given the cost for other than two people in a cabin.  I guess all I can say is that you don't want to go alone!
         Single travelers will have to pay $2895 to go on this trip.
         Three to a room isn't really all that bad at $1550 per person.
         Four to a room saves a bit more at $1425 per person.
         Each cabin can have up to four people occupying it.  
         One more thing to clarify.  All of the cabins we have reserved are "Ocean View" cabins.  That means they are above water, in roughly the center of the ship and all have windows overlooking the Ocean (not portholes).  All the food you want, most drinks, tips, taxes and fees are included.  However, when you go on shore to explore the islands, etc. you are on your own.  You can, however, come back to the ship to eat if you wish.  
         You do not need a passport to go on this trip, but you do want to have proof of citizenship along with you.  An original birth certificate, enhanced driver's license, passport, will all work.
         Feel free to call, or email me with any additional questions.  But, the main point of this email is to let you know that there is more of an urgency than I thought as far as reserving your spot!
    Jim

  • PICK YOUR ROOM!
    THIS IS DEFINITELY "DIFFERENT"!

         You'll need to open this flier before you'll fully understand what we're doing that is new and different.  Although most of travelers are seniors, this particular trip does provide an opportunity for families to enjoy some time together.  Not long as it's just a three day trip!  But, we are spicing it up a bit with an opportunity for you to decide where you want to stay ... (well, at least you'll have a choice of what caboose you want to reside in!).
         In addition to choosing your 2-night home, we'll enjoy a brand new production at Sight & Sound theater in Lancaster county, PA.  QUEEN ESTHER is said to be a fantastic offering that the whole family will enjoy!  
         The price will vary according to what caboose you pick to stay in, but it will be in the $700 price range.  
         First of all, check out the sleeping rooms!

  • SIGHT & SOUND THEATER, LANCASTER, PA.
    SEE THE NEWEST PLAY ~ QUEEN ESTHER

       FRANK TALK travelers have had the pleasure in the past of seeing unbelievable stage productions like SAMSON & JONAH.  There are two SIGHT & SOUND theaters, one in Branson, MO. and the other in Pennsylvania.  They are virtually identical.
         The newest production will start this March.  It's called QUEEN ESTHER and it promises to be just as exciting as magnificent and exciting as previous performances.  
         This trip is in the "tentative" stage and we need your help to place it in the "go" category!  We will set the trip up and provide you with complete details when we have enough people to make it work.
         Take a look at the information about the show by clicking below!  And then, let me know if you want to go!

  • SEATTLE RIDE & FLY
    "GO or NO" DATE IS MARCH 1, 2020 ... let us know if you want to go!

         This is a totally new way of doing one of our Super Trips.  Combining air travel with bus travel is something we've wanted to try for quite some time, but this is the first trip we have had that lends itself to that idea in a big way!  Check out the brochure below and we think you'll be as excited about it as we are!

         We should point out that we have moved the date from our original offering which will require a quicker response from you,  But, you'll also be able to save additional money with a quick turnaround on the prebuy offer.  With the balance of your payment due in March we'll only tie up your money for about three months instead of the normal 8 or 9 months!

  • THE CANADIAN TRIFECTA
    "GO or NO" DATE IS JULY 1, 2020 ... let us know if you want to go!

         Five years ago a busload of FRANK TALK travelers spent some time in Nova Scotia and other Canadian locations.  Without exception, they were totally blown away with the awe and beauty of the region.  At that time, we vowed we would do it again!
         And so we are!  This trip is a bit different as we are arriving in Quebec City, New Brunswick after traveling through Canada.  This French city will provide us with a new and different experience.  
         Our next destination will be Nova Scotia and the beauty of the Cabot Trail.  We'll visit some quaint fishing villages and enjoy an ocean view as we travel in both Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.  As we travel around Prince Edward Island we'll enjoy much more of what Canada has to offer.

    (TRIFECTA SEATING CHART)

I keep wondering what it is that will generate a large interest among our travelers. Admittedly, we’ve gone a lot of places and done a lot of things over the past ten years. It’s very difficult to try to come up with things that will tickle your fancy!

Hopefully, this will do it! Please click on this: https://youtu.be/Wrbpv7LRknE

What you are seeing is a first time event. Not only the first time for us, but the first time ever! We’ve been to both Sight and Sound theaters with groups of travelers. The folks who have been there still remember and rave about the live shows. 
Now, Sight and Sound has produced a movie version of one of their very popular stage presentations. JESUS

The theater version will be appearing three times just before April, 2020. We’ve decided that a lot of you should want to experience this unique experience. 
It’s only going to appear on April 7 at 6:30 pm, April 9 at 6:30 pm and April 11 at 12:55 pm. We’ve chosen the Regal theater in Fort Wayne as our destination.

Here’s what is involved. The cost per person is just $74. That includes transportation to and from, dinner at Cracker Barrels and some great seats in the theater. 
We’ve reserved seats for all three performances. We have just 24 seats for each performance. In order to secure some great seats we have to do it now, and I mean right now. This event just came on the market yesterday and they expect it to sell out quickly.

The seats will be sold on a first come basis for all three performances. You can call Jim at 517-320-6670 or email: jim@franktalkontheroad.com to hold your seats. Full payment will be required within five days to officially hold your position.

As seats are sold, there will be updates on our website at: www.franktalkontheroad.info. As each performance is sold out, we will not sell any additional tickets. People holding the tickets will be allowed to sell them to others if something happens and they can’t go on the trip There will be no refunds.

Reserve your seats now! At this point, no one seems to know if it will ever be released to theaters nationwide. For now, it’s just playing at select theaters mostly in the bigger cities.
