Grand Southern LA-NY 9th July 2012

18 Oct 2011 miikeboyle asked


Hey Guys,

Ive changed the date of this post to the 9th of July 2012 as its the tour I am now doing. Originally I had planned a few other dates but due to travel agents error I am now on this tour.

Im Mike and am planning on doing the Grand Southern from LA-NY starting on the 9th July.
Ill be in the USA/Central America for the 2 months before this trip and will hang around in NY for a few days after the trip.

Let me know if your also thinking about doing this trip by contacting me here or via email

    Hey Ashlee, No i am not doing the 7th June anymore. I originally planned on it but found another date that better suited the rest of my trip, but I ended up missing out on that as well due to my travel agents stuff up. Im now doing one leaving 9th July but dont know of anyone else doing it.
