    December 21st

         This could well be one of the most interesting day trips we have ever had. Some of our travelers were with us a couple of years ago when we visited Cell Block 7. When we heard that they were closing after the end of this year, we decided it was something our travelers would like to see. So, we set a trip up in a hurry.
         In addition to the Cell Block 7 tour, we will be visiting a newer structure in Grass Lake, MI. It's called the Lost Railway museum and critics tell me that it is certainly worth a visit.
         So, with pick ups in Coldwater, Evergreen Estates and Walmart in Jonesville, we should experience a very interesting day. You can join us for just $74 per person. That includes both tours and a great lunch at either Cracker Barrel or Bob Evans ...
         We will be using our 25 passenger small bus and some seats are already sold. So, best hurry to secure your seats if you want to go!

    Weds. January 29, Showtime is 3 pm

         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.
         We'll start our day with lunch at Cracker Barrel in Jackson, MI. on our way to Chelsea. At 1:00 pm we'll spend an hour on a specially guided tour of the Jiffy facility in Chelsea. Jiffy is famous world wide for their special cornbread mix. 
         The production we'll see 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 $79.

    JUNE 15-26, 2020


         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!

    September 9th thru September 19th, 2020


         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.  



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:

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: 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: 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.
