For over six years our travel club has enjoyed the adventure of traveling and exploring the backroads with Chumley.  Traveling with him is special and I’m always ready to pack my bag for a small group trip to see and hear about unique places.

I have worked with Chumley for 10 years, scheduling extended trips for residents at Deerfield.  I love Chumley’s backroads travel agenda.  His attention to trip participants is wonderful and he is definitely my “go-to” guy.

We love partnering with Explore Up Close to program travel for our OLLI at Furman members.  Chumley has an easy-going style, and has been very adaptable to the kinds of travel requests that stem from a 2000-member community of learners.  Explore Up Close has been a great fit for us.

Chumley has created some great trips to lesser-known places over the last three years for our members.  They’ve enjoyed his stories and the sense of discovery on his trips.
