Grand Northern NY-LA 4th May 2012

13 Jan 2012 Tara89 asked


Hi guys! I just wanted to see who else is doing the Grand Northern NY-LA starting 4th May, 2012? Less than 4 months away! 107 sleeps until I leave to be exact :P

I did the Grand Southern in 2010 and had such an amazing time so I'm very much looking forward to this trip. I will be going with my sister, her friend and friend's sister.

Would be nice to say hi to others doing this tour too! :)

    I’m doing the Grand Canadian which from what I understand goes along with the Grand Northern for the first half.

    Hey Bec,

    It sounds like a few of the people on the tour are staying there. I will be but haven’t booked it yet. Do you know all the details?

    You can also get in touch with a few of the people from this tour on this facebook page.

    Looking forward to meeting you.
