    Hi, I am looking to do the Grand Southern Tour in January 2008 or April 2008, LA – NY. I am travelling solo also. I am applying for my canadian work visa and decided to do a tour of America first. I have been on a working visa to the UK for two years and had a ball. I also went solo then too and met some of my best friends over there. I am planning to stay in LA for a few days first and then NY for a few days after my tour. Anyone else doing a tour around this time????

    I am travelling to US of A in Janurary and Feburary 2008. I am on my own for most of trip. I am skiing for 2 weeks with friedns before they head back to Aus. Then a contiki tour (Eastern Discovery) and then a week in New York/East side. Its gonna be cold but good all the same. Want to head up to Boston again and party hard in New York (of course).

    I’m thinking of doing the LA To The Bay probably 25th June 08. I can’t do the full Wild Western because I can only have 2 weeks off work at a time Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->

    Hi, everyone! My name is CY, I’m 24, originally from the Philippines but now live in Arizona. I’m thinking of doing Eastern Discovery either Dec 07 or Feb 08. And yep, I’m going solo! Just want to get away from it all, but not be too alone, you know? =)
