His new talk show, The TD Jakes Show, will feature provocative and relatable stories of people looking for support and insight for navigating some of the most critical issues and challenges of our times, from family and finance to love and relationships.

This is going to be the best year yet!
Luxury Coach, New Itinerary, More Fun!

The date is set and the countdown has begun for our annual Phoenix River Trek. On August 26th our road trip will begin. We will arrive in Phoenix early afternoon and check in to our fabulous suites sponsored once more by THE INN AT EAGLE MOUNTAIN.
This is always our home base on this trip and as most of you know, every room is equipped with a fireplace & jacuzzi.
The resort has added a few new amenities including a restaurant. Massages will also be available by reservation only. As always we will make a visit to the
Famous Fountain and there will be two nights by the pool this year. As usual the cocktails are on the house and there will be lots of door prizes.


Just like last year we will be tubing on day two. We will have more time on the river and more fun at the resort. Saturday night will be pool party night. For those of you who do not wish to challenge the river, you just relax and enjoy the resort, play a round of golf at the Eagle Mountain Country Club, or just lounge around the pool.

We will leave the resort Sunday morning and make a breakfast stop. And to top off the weekend, we will have the famous Interstate 8, onboard wine party. How’s that for fun?

I am accepting reservations now. The total cost is $125 per person plus+ ($65 per night = $130) for your two night hotel stay.
$125 per person holds your seat and the hotel balance is not due until check-in on August 26th. There are a few room options which the hotel will tell you about when you book. If you would like to be more budget minded and share a room, up to 4 can stay in a room and the cost does not change. Deluxe rooms are available so the sooner you make your deposit the better room selection you will have.

Your $125 deposit payment includes:
Bus transportation via Goldfield Stage Co.
Tubing Charge
Cocktails, soft drinks, & snacks on the bus
Hosted cocktail party
Hosted pool party
Door prize drawing
Wine party on return trip

(You will take care of your own meals but prices will be very reasonable)

FYI… You will not be able to make your hotel reservations until you receive a go-ahead note from me.

Nov. 14th, 15th, & 16th, 2014

A lot of planning hours went into this one but it was a huge success. It may turn out to be an annual event. The Days Inn Williams AZ were our wonderful hosts and took care of our every need. The partnered up with Kicks on Route 66 next door who took care of our dining needs. Along with the indoor pool and use of the breakfast room, we were able to have both a wine pool party and a cocktail party.

After breakfast on Saturday morning some of us will take the 1 hour bus ride to the rim of the Grand Canyon while others opted to ride the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. We all rendezvoused at the canyon and had a great time touring and enjoying it’s beauty.

The views were spectacular and many new friends were made. For many of the group it was their first time visiting the Grand Canyon. They were able to scratch that off their bucket list. This was one of most fun adventures to date.
