HI for anyone going on this tour, i've started a facebook group. just search "Best of USA Starting LA 22nd November 2012". Can't wait to go! i'm travelling alone and would love to get to know a few people before hand, especially when I will have to room share! only 3.5 months to go!!! =)

    Hi Jared!!
    Awesome! are you getting to LA a couple of days before? i’m flying in on the 20th to have a couple of days to explore.
    Not sure about the group page, maybe because its a closed group… this is the link for the group,!/groups/423979297653359/

    I’ll be getting to LA in the morning on the 21st (: super excited! I’ll probably be having to share a room too because my friend decided to invite her bf at the last minute.

    i’ll be heading to disneyland on the 21st! Hoping to spend at least 2 days there! Bella and jlm where are you both staying on the 21st? think the majority of us are staying at the Kyoto (aka Doubletree) on the 21st and we can all meet at the meet up that night.

    Our travel agent couldn’t get us into Kyoto until the tour start date so we’re booked in at the Sheraton on the 21st but I’d really like to get there at least a day before or stay a few days after! Ahh coolio (:
