Heya,

Is anybody else doing this tour?? it doesn't seem like many people are from the convo's here.
I am going alone first time ever and i'm scared, hopefully someone is on the tour, i think it would be a tad boring all on my own....

    Hey, Well I am still thinking about doing this tour. I won’t find out until April, but I am hoping that I am going to be doing this one. It is my first time overseas and I will be travelling alone as well. I was scared at the start but now I am just excited. Im not to sure but I think that the Grand Southern and The Sounthern Adventure are on the same bus just the Adventure finishes early for that group. But yeah Anyways so is this your first time overseas?? and where abouts are you from??

    hey I’m thinking of going on this tour as well if I can save enough money in time. Waiting for some cheap air nz flights to LA to be available as well. Fingers crossed! If not I will be doing it in March/April 2010 which is way too far away!

    I just came back from doing the Wild Western last year and I had a blast. I was with my boyfriend at the time and we went on it together but now I’m single so will be doing the GS by myself. Majority of the people on the WW were travelling by themselves and everyone was really friendly so don’t worry!

    Hey yeah when I first put something up I was a little worried cause It was like no one else was going either.lol. But yeah anyways I am from Brisbane, I have never actually been out of the country.. But yeah very excited about finally getting out to see something different… So what was your main reason for choosing this particular tour?? For me I have always wanted to see Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, and New Orleans. No Idea why, but yeah then I have always wanted to go to Alabama aswell.lol. Well anything different is always good… Well yeah it was great to hear back from you, and hope to hear from you again soon??

    ive pretty much always wanted to go to america and funny you say it but have always wanted to go to alabama!!! LOL also LA and New York of course, Miami, pretty much everywhere. if i can get threw travelling alone being away from family am considering living over there for a year or so. I am getting so excited though wish i could go sooner but wanna save heaps of money to go shopping and do everything on da tour!! Are you staying anywhere before or afterwards??

    Hey Again,
    Yeah it’s weird how people usually want to see the same places.lol. I think living over there for any amount of time would be amazing. I would love to get up enough money to be able to go over there and live, and work. I just think that it would be a great experience. I have always wanted to do that but was too afraid to leave the country.lol. As for before or after the trip, I am not too sure.. I can’t leave before because my sister’s 18th is the day before I leave and she said I MUST go clubbing with her.lol. but afterwards I am not too sure. I would like to see more of the country but I guess I’ll see what happens. What about you what’s you plans for before or after??

I am over there 2 nights before hands, den staying in new york after for 3 nights and than stopping Hawaii on da way back for 2 nights!! i am getting so excited it’s so far away but if da year goes as quick as last year i’m sure it’ll be here quicker than we can blink!!!! yeh living working over there for anytime would be awsome, i think i will get homesick but i’m sure ill get over it when i’m with people having da time of my life!

    Hey there everyone
    I’m hoping to do the grand southern tour later this year. I did the LA to The Bay in October last year and it was absolutely awesome. I travelled by myself for the first time too and I think it’s the best way to do it. You meet so many great people.

    Which way round would most people be doing the tour. LA to NY or NY to LA??

  • 19 Jan 2009 Casey5 said
