    Hey Dayna-maree

    We’re thinking of doing the GS departing NYC on October 22nd/23rd 09 because we’re thinking finishing in Vegas might be the go! We would probably stay on in Vegas and spend an extra few nights at the end because we spent two nights there on our Wild Western & it wasnt nearly enough time! What are your plans at the moment?

    I am thinking about booking this trip for the 22nd departing from LA, I have already booked the Southern Adventure but am considering chaging it to this one because it is longer.

    Hey Everyone,

    I’m all booked in the Oct 22nd departure from LA – NY.

    I’m with all you guys – VEGAS IS DA BEST!! Gonna spend 7days there before I start the tour too – gonna be awesome!!

    Has anyone thought, we’ll be spending Halloween in America – How crazy will that be? And we’re spending it in Memphis – Everyone will be dressed as Elvis, gonna be a lot of fun. I’m hoping to a basic costume, not enough room to pack a cool fancy one. But, Halloween in America will be awesome, especially being in Australia, we don’t really do much if anything.

    Can’t Wait to meet all of you and jet set off on the Adventures.

    Cy’all Soon.
