    Yay! I’m back online. Couldn’t post here for awhile, trouble with contiki account.
    Hi Bec and welcome. See you in chicago when we get there. The post tour accomodation is Best Western Stovalls Inn. Its not covered by your contiki, so you need to book it extra. Most of us will be staying there, its cheap enough, and not far from Disneyland.
    12 Days until me and Paul leave for San Fran. Poor work wont be getting much out of me in the last week, i will be too excited to do much. Maybe i should have a practice pack.
    p.s For any of you still trying to post in the forums, try changing your password, that was the last thing i did before it started working again.
    USA here we come

    Hey, this tour ROCKED. Thank you, Todd and Greg for making this tour a memorable one, and maybe i will catch up with you sometime on another one. Hello to all my Tourmates, and to any of you thinking of doing this tour, go for it. (not this actual tour cos its finished, but one like it). And remember, you only get out what you put in, you have to make the effort to have fun. Until next time, adios, Ian

    Hey, I do hope you guys still check your page but I am to go on the GN in a couple of weeks and am lookin to book a show on the night the tour gets in to Vegas, I am looking to book a 19.00 show and was wondering what time you guys got in to Vegas and whether it is a safe bet to book the show then. Many thanks!
