Explorer’s chairpersons plan day and overnight trips for the club. Trips are reserved for club members first, then, if space is available, to spouses/friends/family. Be aware, we are volunteers, not professional travel planners!

2017 – 2018 TRIPS

Clifton’s Cafeteria trip will be on Saturday, April 28, 2018. The cost will include Metrolink fare from Santa Clarita to Union Station, the bus from Union Station to Clifton’s and the cost of whatever you order for lunch. Please contact Kathi Giddens if you are interested in participating in this event.

Brunch at the Beach - Cancelled

The Brunch at the Beach trip has been cancelled Emoji. The fellow who runs the Brunch at the Beach vintage train sent an email indicating that effective immediately, all vintage train cars can no longer be hooked up to Amtrak trains. The reason given was ~ the vintage train car (one car) frequently causes the Amtrak train to run late. According to John (LA Rail) this happens less than one percent of the time. The bottom line is the trip is cancelled.

If you signed up for the trip, your money will be refunded. John will refund the money to Margie, and she will send it out to the ladies who paid the $189.

On a more pleasant note ~ Amtrak does run a business class trip to San Diego. It provides a light breakfast with coffee, tea, etc. on the southbound trip and light meal (box lunch type) and drinks (wine included) on the north bound trip. The cost is about $118 for the Amtrak portion. If there is enough interest, we can certainly schedule a trip in May. Soooo if you are interested, please let Kathi Giddens or Geri Benne know ASAP.

If you have a suggestion for an Explorer trip during the next fiscal year (June, 2018 through May, 2019) please send Geri Benne or Kathi Giddens an email with your suggestion.
