It’s time to hit the road on another Daytripper Bus Tour! This time we head west of Austin to visit some the best and newest distilleries. Texas Spirits is on the rise in popularity so join us as we learn about the process of making and sample great Rum, Bourbon and Vodka. Along the way we will have lunch at a small brew-pub as well and snag some Texas style beef jerky.

You won’t want to miss this trip. Please note, you must be 21 to come on this trip. We will be leaving from and returning to Georgetown. For more information, visit the Daytripper General Store.

Looking forward to seeing y’all on the bus!

 

Trippin’ with Chet: North Texas Wine Tour

DTNTXBus

Finally – We are very excited to announce our next “Trippin’ with Chet” tour happening on Saturday, October 4, 2014.

We had so much fun trippin’ and sippin’ wine in the Texas Hill Country, that we decided it would be a BLAST to sample the wine from another region of Texas.  So, we’re headed to Grapevine (and beyond) to see what sorts of wine this part of Texas is turning out.

Join us as we spend a fun-filled day exploring North Texas Wineries!  We’ll be leaving out of Grapevine for a full day of adventure and visiting FOUR Texas wineries across the Metroplex.  Throw in some BBQ, our crew, some shenanigans and surprises (of course), and this is sure to be an AMAZING day.

Tickets are $199 each which includes all transportation, all food, all tours, wine at each location, fun, games, and DAYTRIPPER-ific memories.  See you there!

Get your ticket in The Daytripper General Store.

If you’ll be driving in and need a place to stay, we’ve got an excellent group rate of $69/night at Best Western Plus near Grapevine.  Call them at (972) 870-0530 and mention “Daytripper” to get the rate.

Fredericksburg Wine Tour

We had a great time on our recent bus trip through part of the Fredericksburg Wine Country. Big thank to Ernie and his team at the Fredericksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau for helping to set this up. Everyone had a great time sampling wine, eating great food and visiting the Nimitz museum as well. Thanks to all the places we stopped along the way:

Fredericksburg is a great place to visit with plenty to do for everyone. For more ideas on where to go, check out our Fredericksburg episode.

Team Daytripper – MS 150

DTMS150_featured

Hey Daytrippers, tomorrow is the MS 150 and Team Daytripper is riding again! This is a fun event for a great cause. There will be a group of over 12,000 riders biking from Houston to Austin over 2 days. This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.

Until just a couple years ago, multiple sclerosis (“MS”) was a completely foreign disease to me.  However, I have been blessed with a brother-in-law and one of our producer’s wife who suffer from MS.  I have seen the daily effects and am honored to stand beside them in finding a life-saving cure.  The research is closer than ever and we can all be a part of it.  I’m also proud to say that my brother-in-law will again be riding with our team, which has doubled in size from last year!

This is going to be a fun event. If you are in the Houston area, we’d love to have you at one of the starting points to cheer the riders on as we start our journey. The ride kicks off in 3 locations - Tully Stadium in Houston, TX, Rhodes Stadium in Katy, TX and Waller Stadium in Waller, TX. If you are in the Austin area, we’d love to have you join us at the finish line to celebrate. We will arrive in Austin next to the Texas State Capitol. Events will be held there and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Come on out and be a part of the celebration.

In addition to coming out for the event, please consider supporting my team on this ride, or anyone else you know that is riding. It’s going to be an EPIC year for the MS150 and I want you to be a part of it.

Thank you for your support and encouragement!

Teaching Texas History through Hats

http://www.toddwhite.org

Recently I had the opportunity to be a part of Texas day at the school at First Baptist Church in Georgetown. It was a day focused on all things Texas and obviously I was excited! The settlers of Texas wore many hats and each left their mark on this great state. What better way to teach Texas history to a group of kids than to get them involved in wearing some of the hats of our settlers. From Native Americans to Pirates to Germans to the classic Cowboy…we explored the heritage of Texas…Daytripper style.
