Bus Makes First ‘Great Cherry Loop’May 11, 2010 | Posted by admin
The time-honored Greyhound travel slogan goes something like “take a bus, and leave the driving to us…..”
Well, that’s kind of what we’ve been doing, though we did the driving.
Having just returned from a motor home/coach journey of the Central U.S., we’re struck, as always, by the enormity and diversity of this great country of ours.
Mindful of song writer Woody Guthrie’s classic “This Land Is Your Land,” we covered 3,000 miles on a round trip cross-country junket that led from the Great Lakes to the terminus of the mighty Mississippi in New Orleans—-or as the natives say: “Naw’lins….”
How awesome this big slice of the mid-section of our country is! From farmlands, seaports and mountains to the birthplaces of Jazz and the Motown Sound.
Our coach tour began the end of April when we set off in our newly-skinned bus – yet to be named as you may know – destination: Louisiana. Stopping along the way on our drive south, Janet and I were quite the spectacle with plenty of waves, honks and stares wherever we went…talking about the health benefits of red tart cherries.
After attending the National Animal Supplement Council annual convention on behalf of our popular CherryFlex for Dogs product, we headed back the other direction landing in Branson, Missouri. Nestled in the Ozarks, this musical mecca attracts thousands of country music fans from all over – and yes, we saw some terrific shows. We met lots of interesting people, told them all about our quality FruitFast products.
Then it was on to Kokomo and Shipshewana, Indiana – better known as Amish territory – a beautiful farming area we particularly enjoy that’s not far from the Michigan border. After visiting with family nearby, we rolled on to Detroit before returning home to our trailhead—Traverse City.
As always, it’s good to be home again.
