“The Viking Trail Caravan” will begin at Little Bras D’Or Cape Breton, Nova Scotia where we will board the Marine Atlantic Ferry from North Sydney to Channel-Port Au Basque to begin our journey across Newfoundland. During the early part of our adventure we will spend about 10 days exploring The Viking Trail on the Great Northern Peninsula and will visit the site where Leif Erikson established a Viking Community at L’Anse Aux Meadows about 1,000 years ago. Along the Great Northern Peninsula we expect to see wildlife such as Moose, and sites such as Icebergs, visit the remains of the shipwreck SS Ethie, and see the Arches Provincial Park in Portland Creek. Then we will head east to places such as Twillingate and Bonavista to see more Newfoundland wildlife such as Puffins in Elliston, Gannets in Cape St. Mary, and visit the coastal coves and the harbors all along the way. There are several dinner theaters planned, such as “The Viking Feast” in St. Anthony, the “Rising Tide Theater” in Trinity, and “The Spirit of Newfoundland Theater” at the Historic Masonic Temple in St. John’s. For the return trip from Newfoundland we will board the Marine Atlantic Ferry from Argentia for the overnight 14 hour cruise back to North Sydney, Nova Scotia. A cabin and dinner aboard the Ferry will be provided. The Kitty Fee includes all group dinners, cookouts, entertainment, activities, campsites, and all Ferry costs to and from Newfoundland.

The 2014 Southwest Adventure Caravan will be in August, September and October capturing the awesome beauty of the fall landscapes. Beginning in Durango, we will visit the higher vistas first, before traveling on to lower altitudes hoping to escape early snows. Bring clothes for all climates! We will find what’s around the corner in this four-corners region of CO, UT, AZ, and NM, that tourists may not usually see visiting Indian pueblos, reservations and learning about their cultures from Native guides. The grandeur of the scenery will amaze us as we ride the train up the mountain to Silverton, CO, hike to the “Palace” in Mesa Verde, or bounce into Monument Valley (seen in car commercials and movies). Moab, UT offers gorgeous views in the surrounding National Parks and excitement with “slick-rock riding” in the ultimate jeep. Whether using a camera at Capitol Reef National Park or riding a mule into Bryce Canyon the parks will captivate us. After seeing the North Rim of the Grand Canyon we’ll spend a relaxing 5 days beside Lake Powell and enjoy a ½ day boat trip, a raft float trip and a tour through the unusual Antelope Canyon. Our final 2 weeks will take us to NM exploring Gallup, Albuquerque, and Santa Fe where we will be a part of the Hot Air Balloon Festival, we will trolley through town, we will savor local cuisine and we will visit Taos. America the Beautiful passes (formerly Golden Age Pass) will save you $ for fees in Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches, Canyon lands and North Rim Grand Canyon National Parks. Come prepared to have fun with your fellow caravaners and leaders!

Address: 9101-39 Steilacoom Road SE
The Lewis and Clark Trail Caravan is back by popular demand. This 45-day caravan will rendezvous at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers (where Lewis & Clark did). We will follow their route up the Missouri River, across mountain passes to the Snake and Columbia Rivers and on to Warrenton, OR (FortClatsop), the western terminus of their journey. The Corps of Discovery spent the very wet winter of 1805-1806 there. We, however, will enjoy seafood, and great weather on the Pacific Ocean in the comfort of our Airstreams.
Our route will take us from St. Louis across Missouri (Kansas City), up through Iowa (Council Bluffs), the Dakotas (Bismarck, Fort Mandan, Medora), across Montana (Great Falls, Helena, Three Forks, Bozeman), then drop down into Yellowstone National Park for a few days; cross into Idaho and over Lolo Pass to the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake Rivers where Lewis and Clark spent several days; we will enjoy a boat cruise up the Snake into Hells Canyon. Then on to the Columbia River and follow it down to the Pacific Ocean. Although Lewis and Clark didn’t actually get into Yellowstone National Parks, it’s too close (and good!) to pass up. So you will have the opportunity to explore and visit it and many other beautiful, interesting, and informative locations along the route.
Entertainment, excursions, cookouts, picnics, meals and, of course, campgrounds are included.
Maximum RV Units: 25

Alaska is the last Frontier State. Nothing can fully describe the beauty of the Alaskan landscape. Visiting this beautiful State by RV is the best way to do it. Bobbie and I have traveled there twice with our RV and once with the Fly/Drive and there is no other way to see Alaska. So please fill out the coupon in the back of the Blue Beret and send it to us with your deposit of $500 before December 31, 2014.
This is important for those of you that would like to go on the Fly/Drive caravan.
You will need to sign up ASAP if you would like to make this caravan. First checks in first on the caravan. If I do not have the 20 RV people signed up by DEC-31-2014 the caravan will be canceled. The RV rental is TBA. I will not have a cost of the RV’s until later in the year. Last year it was $2800 for 15 days with unlimited miles. They are class “C” motor homes. They were 22’ with a queen bed in the rear so you did not have to climb up over the cab. 22’ RV’S are big enough for a 16 day trip and easy to get around. You won’t spend much time in them anyway. If you figure the cost to drive from your home to Anchorage with your RV, depending where you live can be costly with fuel around $4 a gal. This is a 16 day trip. We encourage you to come early or stay later to do more touring on your own.

As we progress along this craggy coastline of the Bay of Fundy, we will stop to see the world’s most exaggerated tides at the Hopewell Rocks. Views of the Bay of Fundy are best visible from the shoreline roads leading to Cape Enrage and the town of Alma.
Our caravan will cross to the eastern-most shore to Halifax, Nova Scotia which will be our home base as we tour to colorful Peggy’s Cove and historical Halifax. Wine country is just a short drive away where there are lots of opportunities for sampling, etc.
