    Hey everyone, I am booked on the Southern Adventure tour which leaves from LA on 19 September. This is the same as the Grand Southern until we part ways in New Orleans. I have created a combined facebook group for the Grand Southern and Southern Adventure. Link is as follows:!/groups/311070815677865/

    Hey guys, a friend and I are booked in for the half tour finishing in New Orleans and we also are staying in the Contiki hotel a couple of nights before hand (not to mention travelling US for 3 weeks before).
    Too exciting.
    Is this the only forum or is there a Facebook page (as Calfucious said) or something else for those that are confirmed?
