    I’m planning to do this tour in May/June next year, depending on the dates. I want to a couple of other tours while I’m in the US as well.

    I’m planning on doing this tour july/august 08’(can not wait woo hoo) and then staying on for another week or so, im doing this with my wife and my brother and his girlfriend (if they have the money in time).

    Done the wild western for our honeymoon two years ago and it was the best time i really recommend doing that one and stay for a few days after to the likes of universal studios, disney land etc..
