Plugging Away

The last few days have been filled with plumbers, locksmiths, electricians and computer people. We are slowly seeing progress at the new home of Personalized Tours & Coaches. A lot of work but after twenty years in business we decided it was time to move above ground (literally speaking) and depart from the basement offices we have loved so much in the past years. I will miss the convenience of having a home office just a few steps from my living space and knowing I can "run" to the office in no time at all even in my pj's. Adding to our staff means needing more space and room to grow - we'll keep you updated...move in date isn't until spring.

The hot spot to travel this spring is Madison to watch the Badger Band Spring Concert. Both our coaches are full and looking forward to another great show. Daniel O'Donnell is coming back to Milwaukee so lots of excitement among our fans - space still available August 18th.

Gotta go to work - more later.

January in Wisconsin

This week I spent everyday in a different community hosting a travel preview of our 2009 tour lineup. I didn't have to sell very hard - just looking out the window at all the snow (no longer white and pretty) made us all wish we had gone elsewhere for the month of January. So for those who need time planning, we invite you to "wrap up" your Christmas early this year and plan on escaping to Arizona for a few weeks next in January / February! Travel in the Midwest seems to be going strong and if our convention last week is any indication of things to come, we'll be on the road again, even more than in 2008). It was nice to see everyone at the travel shows and relive all the fun we had last year, from the Carolinas to New England and all points in between. Some of you racked up over 10,000 miles on Personalized Coaches - WOW!! How are your New Year's resolutions going?? So far so good, I have blogged twice this week. More later, keep traveling and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Finally Back!

Hello Everyone:
Wow have I been busy! I apologize that my blog has been neglected since the first entry. Summer came and I have been on the road enjoying my travels from coast to coast. Autumn was a blur and the holiday season was filled with the Rockettes, trips to Branson, and a luxurious stay at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville. I made a New Year's resolution to blog twice a week so hold me to it. We have added to our staff and look forward to a wonderful 2009! We have lots of great destinations planned so hopefully you will be apart of our gang this year. When it comes to the economy; if you don't read the paper you are uninformed, and if you read the paper you are misinformed. So keep the faith and let's roll!
