What should I prepare before the tour starts?

Great tour – did it same time of year – in 2002. My first overseas experience – loved it. Pack fairly light – you gotta lug it around – so keep it simple. Vegas Vegas Vegas – what a place. Not enough time to do it all – but a good start. Grand Canyon – magnificent. San Fran – excellent place. when I did it – there were 3 tours within the one – Wild Western being the longest – that others came and went on.
I’m doing the Wild Western in July this year. I will be of more help to you once I am back but I thought I’d tell you some of the things I’m going to do to prepare.
I’ve been keeping a list of stuff to get organised as I remember things.
- Make sure you get your passport early.. Might seem kind of obvious but I leave soon and still haven’t got mine!
- Make sure you look into getting health insurance, also go to the dentist before you leave if you haven’t been in a while (my appointment is tomorrow <!--graemlin::(-->)
- Decide how you want to organise your money. Credit card, travelers cheques, prepaid cash card?
- Large backpack or suitcase? I’m taking a suitcase
-Research the cities you are going to and decide what you really want to see and how to go about seeing it.
-I’m also making sure I have allllll the music I can handle on my ipod for the long flights and bus trips.
-Also to prepare I just read a lot of advice on the site and forum to get a proper of idea what to expect.
Anyway that is just some stuff to think about, maybe you have already done all of that. I hope this wasn’t too long!
Good luck <!--graemlin::)-->
