  • A Senior Bachelor Reunion Dinner- November 9th- FREE DINNER AND COCKTAILS!!
  • More Senior Bachelor Cruises!
  • Senior Bachelor Video Now Available!

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I would like to thank all of the loyal readers and followers of the Senior Bachelor Search and Journey, and its "parallel mission "of Promoting Romance and Adventure For People 45+, for remaining in our group. As you know my personal Search and Journey is on hold, and I have been working on cruises and other ideas for "your" Search and Journey. While not everybody reading these Newsletters is single, the majority of us are. And in that regard, we all are doing our own Searching. Aren't we??

    A good friend was not clear about my not resuming the Journey, yet I was arranging cruises and other forms of entertainment for our group. The answer is twofold. I do not have the confidence in my health to put the Journey back in motion as my operation was just seven months ago. That is the biggest factor. Also, few people are aware of the enormous amount of work, and people, that went into, and work that would have to be redone, for me to pick up where I left off last January. My original itinerary included two months in Brazil and Argentina with Vicki and Gael (that was accomplished and was a lot of fun!) then Africa, India, Burma, Laos, Cambodia,and probably Irian Jaya. This is an extremely demanding and grueling itinerary and anyone would have to feel they were in absolute top physical condition to do this. Until I am certain that my health allows me to travel for, say four solid months, and also that my desire to move forward in a potential relationship is as strong as it was last year, I will continue to work hard on arranging social activities for all of you that have been loyal followers.

    S_ _t happens. Circumstances that were unforeseen cause different responses. This is how I have chosen to respond to my new circumstances. Your support for me during my cancer experience was very touching and sustained me. And just seeing over 170 people on the two Alaska cruises laughing and singing, meeting new friends, and just having fun, brought great joy to me. Actually, enormous joy. The get-togethers last year in Manhattan Beach and Chicago, were also great fun. This is how I choose to spend my time right now. Next year, who knows???

    For the next four weeks I will be conducting a tour to Italy. All of the tour members (except for my sister, Connie) were on one of the Alaska cruises. Quite frankly, this allowed me the opportunity to invite people that I thought would travel well and be fun to travel with. I will send back Newsletters in a week or so along with Umberto's great photographs, as Umberto will also be with our group.

    At the risk of "over-selling" I encourage any and all of you, who have the time, and yes the wherewithal, to come on one of the three upcoming cruises in January and February. The Panama Canal is for serious cruisers, only. It is a 16 day cruise. But my goodness, in my opinion, I doubt anyone will ever see such an incredible bargain on a 6 star cruise line, Crystal, like this ever again. In fact, I have been asked by Crystal Cruise Lines to take the price list off of my website because it is so LOW! Please call Jay or Leah at Coastline Travel at 1-800-448- 2374, (or 714-621-1040) for the prices.

    The two Caribbean cruises in January and February with Holland America are also fantastic deals, as we offer many "bonuses" along with the cruise itself.

    Click here for a link to the three upcoming cruises. If you would like to know the rates for the Panama Canal cruise, simply hit "Reply" to this e- mail,and in the Subject bar write....Panama Canal. Truly, this offer is a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity for the serious cruiser.

    Below is a repeat of the Newsletter I sent last week in case you missed it.

    We know life is not a dress rehearsal. I recommend you get out "there" and do all of the things you have always wanted to do! You'll find, like I and all those staying involved with the Senior Bachelor Adventure are finding, that a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step--- and we are having a heck of a lot of fun taking the rest of those steps!!!!!

    All best wishes to everybody,

    Richard Roe

    A Senior Bachelor Reunion Dinner- November 9th- FREE DINNER AND COCKTAILS!!

    I am pleased to announce our next group meeting- sort of a Senior Bachelor Reunion! And the best part- dinner and cocktails are FREE! Everyone is invited. If you met new friends at the Manhattan Beach and Chicago "Meet the Senior Bachelor" Events, then get together again in Manhattan Beach on Thursday, November 9th at the Ayres Hotel. If you missed any of the previous events and want to meet really terrific people who share your interests in travel and adventure, please come on by.

    Bring any of your friends. We are going to have a wonderful, gourmet buffet dinner called "Under the Tuscan Sun" just like we had at the first "Meet the Senior Bachelor Event." And free cocktails will be served until 8:30PM. There will be door prizes too.

    All of this is brought to us free by Crystal Cruises. We'll all get a chance to learn more about their amazing SIX STAR cruises and cuisine and talk to company representatives.

    If you want to stay overnight or make a long weekend of it, Joe and I have arranged with the Ayres Hotel to give you a special rate of $119 per night per room. This is $30 off the regular rate. The Ayres Hotel shuttle is available to take you to all the fun spots in Manhattan Beach.

    So catch up with old friends and meet some new ones. Bring others along to share in the fun. Learn more about a quality cruise line and party the night and weekend away in beautiful Manhattan Beach! As I mentioned above, I will be in Italy at this time but Joe will be the Master of Ceremonies and we both guarantee you will have a great, great time!

    More Senior Bachelor Cruises!

    Things went so well on those cruises that there will be at least five Senior Bachelor cruises in 2007. The first three are in January and February of 2007. One is a SPECTACULAR cruise, and price, with Crystal Cruise Lines-a 16 day Panama Canal cruise. The other two are Caribbean cruises, both with Holland America, and also terrific values.

    A special Newsletter went out Tuesday, October 3, to the folks who had signed up for them. If you would like to read about these cruises, please click here. And if you would like to be added to the Cruise Newsletter, simply hit "Reply" to this newsletter and put "Cruises" in the subject bar.

    Senior Bachelor Video Now Available!

    Senior Bachelor Video- Now Available!

    The Senior Bachelor DVD is now available. It really is interesting and shows everything starting with the first Oprah appearance in April of 2005 right up to when the Journey was put on hold in Chile when I was diagnosed with cancer. If you would like to purchase the DVD, send $29.95 to: Richard Roe, 3010 The Strand, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266. The proceeds will go to Umberto and to help defray expenses on the website.

    The 2-disc DVD is slightly over 2 hours and starts out with the introduction of Senior Bachelor on Oprah and People Magazine,

    and the get-togethers in Manhattan Beach and Chicago.

    And folks wait 'till you see the crazy hat party in Chicago. You will roar with laughter I' m sure.

    Then you will see the visit to Manhattan Beach by all 22 Fabulous Finalists, a highlight is when seeing more than 20 million dollars worth of jewels at Harry Winston's on Rodeo Drive.

    And then off to Brazil, Argentina and Chile with Vicki and Gael. Truly wonderful shots in Rio de Janiero, the Amazon Jungle (really fun to see), Iguassu Falls, Salvador, and lots of Chile, highlighted by the incredible Atacama Desert.

    When I found out I had cancer, Umberto filmed in real time my finding out the news. And more, much more.

    I think most of the readers of this Newsletter know that my son Chris and I made a film, Pop & Me, which won 6 film festivals and was a Semi-finalist for an Academy Award in 2000, and was sold and put in theaters by MGM in 2000.

    For the past 6 years I have taught filmmaking classes and seminars at UCLA and USC and other film schools. I feel very sure that you will be highly entertained by the Senior Bachelor Video. I am so sure I will offer a guaranteed 100% refund of your money if you do not like the video. Simply return it to me and I'll send a refund.

    Please note that the proceeds from this video will pay Umberto for his wonderful efforts and anything left over will go towards the expenses of running the website.

    You can obtain the video by sending a check, or money order, for $29.95 to Richard Roe. 3010 The Strand, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266 (U.S.A.) I do hope you will support this mission- and have FUN watching the Adventure unfold.
