Tater Tours for 2020!

                                ANNOUNCEMENT OF TATER TOURS FOR 2020!


                                                        Head Tater on Gulf Shores Trip 2019


First of all, I hope that everyone is making it through the harsh winter months that have plagued most of the USA!  I just returned a couple of weeks ago from my unexpected trip to the Southeast for the President's Walking Weekend in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  It was a great success!!  When I returned from that trip, I had my family visit and then we continued onto Hawaii!  Can't get enough of that State!  I announced on my Southeast Trip my intentions to stay with Tater Tours for a few more years and also my schedule for 2020. Well, needless to say, people started to immediately jump on the bandwagon so I wanted to make sure that everyone was aware of my 2020 trips. (Unfortunately, one trip is already "SOLD OUT", which means, I might have to run that trip again in 2021!  So below is a very generic outline of what I have ……. just tentative dates and NO prices yet.  Let me know if you are interested in any of the trips.  A $50.00 deposit is required to sign up.
