Best of USA Feb 2013 - Who else is going?

3 May 2012 matty asked


Hey I am going to do the Best of USA tour starting in Feb 2013 in LA by myself.
Considering having a week or so in California before the tour starts, is anyone else thinking the same? If so what are your plans? Let me know. Cheers.

    Me and my girlfriend are planning on going on this trip. we are just waiting on our official flight costs so we can book. im still a little worried that it wont definitely go ahead. it isnt a definite departure yet
    hope fully it will fill up before too long…

    Yeah im looking to book within the next few months, just have to wait on flight costs and a few other things too. Have you been over to the US before? Where about are you from. .

    Yeah we are really excited. I haven’t been to the US before but Bec has. We live in Australia FNQ. How about yourself? Do you know roughly when they usually release the definite departure status of the february 2013 tour?

    Oh ok, we’ll were planning to arrive in la about 2-3 days before the tour commences. We are stopping over in Hawaii on our way back to Australia for a few nights just to wind down and break up the flight home. Have you heard of anyone else attending this tour?

    I’ve been thinking of this tour on and off… I’ll be travelling solo and yes on the older end of the age group, haha! Not that it really matters. Just ready to start the next phase of my life!
    I was planning on a couple of days in LA first, I really want to see Universal and Disney before the tour starts. And a couple of days in NYC/NJ after then home via Memphis/Graceland…
    I’m from Melbourne and I’m still checking out definate travel dates but looking so forward to it…
