Television travel expert, author, and motorcyclist Tamela Rich (that's me!) will share Road Trip Itineraries, Road Trip Fiction, and Short Stories from the Road several times monthly.

Itineraries include recommended destinations, festivals, restaurants, and roadside kitsch in various regions of the United States and Italy with links to tourism boards and trip planning resources.
 
Road Trip Fiction features a quirky and memorable character in locales that range from national parks and scenic overlooks to tourist traps and festivals—and everywhere in between. Stories in the lineup:

At the end of each fiction story, I will provide a digital travel guide for readers who are interested in learning more about the locale in the story or even visiting it themselves one day.

Short Stories from the Road introduce you to memorable characters I have encountered during my travels, from waitresses and park rangers, to fellow travelers and the Buffalo ZooKeeper. Sometimes the stories will be ruminations on life and other times...heck, whatever catches my fancy to share!





Tiers
Armchair Traveler
$3 or more per month 0 patrons

Every month I'll produce some:

*Travel itineraries to download

*Entertaining stories from the road

*Seasonal travel tips

*Short stories that may be true, may be fiction, but will always be enjoyable

Weekend Warrior
$7 or more per month 0 patrons

All the benefits of "Armchair Traveler"


PLUS after three months of patronage at this level, patrons will be eligible for a road trip consultation


Each quarter (that's four times a year) I will draw one name from eligible patrons to help them plan a road trip of their own anywhere in the continental United States. This might include advice on destinations, routes, seasonal attractions and more... That's a $480 value! (see details in "Tamela, Take Me Away" Tier).

Long-Haul Patron
$10 or more per month 0 patrons

All the benefits in "Armchair Traveler" and "Weekend Warrior" 


PLUS: Patrons who have subscribed at least seven months at this level will receive a printed book of the entire year's travel stories, mailed in January of the following year.

Tamela, Take Me Away!
$40 or more per month 0 patrons

That's right, in addition to all the benefits of the earlier tiers, I'll devise the perfect one-week vacation itinerary for you once each year. 


I'll get to know your Traveler Type, your budget, travel dates, and all the essentials to come up with the perfect vacation in the continental United States.  I'll send you my recommendations and after we discuss them, I'll make any necessary adjustments. 


If you're traveling with up to three others, I'll devise the itinerary around individual preferences to be sure everyone gets to do something that makes their heart sing. Consider my services as insurance against WHINING!


You'll get a DAILY detailed itinerary including:

* Routes with links to Google Maps for your smart phone

* Scenic overlooks not to be missed

* Festivals and special events to check out

* Links to online travel guides and resources

* Recommended accommodations

* Restaurant suggestions

* Roadside kitsch you'll want to photograph/visit


Eligibility: After one year at this level I'll plan one week of vacation for you. 

Rendezvous in Paradise
$100 or more per month 0 patrons

In addition to all the benefits above, once or twice each year I'll host an intimate gathering of 8-10 Patrons at a remarkable destination. 


It might be in the United States, Canada, Italy, or the Caribbean. No matter the place, we'll immerse ourselves in the local food, art, sports, sightseeing, history, and enjoy the company of those who call it home.

The first FIVE patrons to join this tier will select the first Rendezvous Destination from my nominees and I'll take it from there, planning every detail.


Patrons will be responsible for getting themselves to the destination, and for their room, board, and optional entertainment. 

Goals
0 of 50 patrons
Once I hit 50 patrons, I'll celebrate by sending the first 50 pioneering patrons a microfibre travel towel customized by yours truly. It's perfect for traveling in every season, no matter your destination!
