i’m thinking of doing it then.. i want to go to Nashville for Fan Fair early June too.. so will see what the dates are..
Getting pumped for it tho.. cant wait!!
I was gonna book it but my travel agent said that the prices arent out for May 09. Apparantly they’re not out until Nov Dec this year..
i to am hoping to do the grand southern this time next year. I have done the states in winter and would love to go in summer apparently this time of year is really nice not to hot yet!
Is anyone planning on spending a few days in LA before and NYC after?
I’m planning to do the Grand Southern (LA-NY) in April/May 2009 … I’m not totally 100% though. I’ll be going by myself and I’m a bit nervous … will you be by yourself or in a group?
i will be going by myself also i have done a europe tour before bymyself also and loved it so i am sure i will be the same on this. Honestly, a lot of people go by themselves gives you the chance to meet heaps of people and do what you want when you want to do it.
Where are you from?
I’m 21, from Sunshine Coast, QLD. How about you?
Hey PonyGirl_Downunder, what date is it you have “booked” for. I’m looking at doing the Southern at the end of May or start of June. Plan to spend time in Anaheim before and NYC after.
Hay. I’m going by myself, not realy scared of doing it by my self. I think I’m planning for the start of May. Be doing either the 4 days in L.A before staring this tour or the 4 days in New York have not yet decided or if I have saved alot of money I’ll do the 3 tours (helps when I just recieved an $159 dollar pay rise).
What can I say about myself. I’m 23 going on 24 next month, an shortie, live in an cold little town about an hour out of Melbourne, an Manager at Maccas, have 4 ponies that I show and owne myself and an huge CARLTON fan (don’t hold that against me) and avery accident prone
Have 2 take my jumper with me caues an couple of the guys who play for the Blues want me to wear it at every land mark and get an photo. My luck I’ll prop loss it some where.

I was meant to do this tour late last year however i got myself a new job and it just didnt work out but all is good as now i get to go in summer and meet more new people!
I went into Flight Centre the other week and they told me to wait till aug/sept when they have their usa expo can get some great disocunts and contiki should have there prices and dates for next may out by then! I am sure the expo will be in every state, just a tip!
I am planning on doing the GS LA-NY in May or June, I will be in LA a few days before and then heading after the GS I am going to the GN so i will end up back in LA. I am thinking of staying maybe a week longer in LA!! I guess that depends on the money situation!!
I am from Canberra, 20 years old – will be 21 by the time we go!!!
Travelling by myself which is a little scary but I am sure it will be awesome!! Keen to have a great time and lots of drinking!!!
Im planning to do this tour beginning of June 09. Planning a couple of days in LA before tour and NY after. I’ll be travelling solo, Im 24 from Adelaide.
I am from Adelaide as well and i am 26 and like you will be travelling alone. I am waiting for the dates to come out but it looks like may/june i will be doing the tour i cant wait! I am also hoping to spend a few days before in LA and Hollywood and New York i love so will defiantly be there for a few days, have oyu done contiki before?
Yeah I’ve been to Europe solo and done the London to Athens tour, which was great and loved it but would really like to travel with someone to USA just too be with someone in LA and NY was also considering San Fan and Hawaii.
i am also hoping to see san fran and do hawaii on the way home (to chill a little after tour!) have you got a friend to come with you or going to go solo like me!
