NCRU140726 Nat. Parks of the Canadian Rockies West - July 26

Postby blondewayfarer » Fri May 30, 2014 9:02 pm

Hi, guys! My name is Rachel, and I just booked a spot on the National Parks of the Canadian Rockies Westbound yolo trip, leaving on July 26th 2014. I'm traveling solo and would love to talk to anyone else who's going on this trip. :D

Can't wait! I googled some images of the national parks and the scenery looks spectacular.

Awesome! :D It's so nice to "meet" you! Where are you coming from?

I'm very very excited, too! This is both my first camping trip and visit to Canada. I'm from the USA (NJ), but have never been over the border, haha.

I come from germany and it is the first time for me travelling to another continent.
This is my third camping trip, but the first with a bigger group. I hope there will be good weather in the rockies :-)

Hi Rachel and Philipp!

My name is Dan and I'm going on this incredible trip with you guys in a month! I can't believe it's already only a month away, I'm so excited! I'm traveling solo as well so I'm looking forward to meeting a ton of great people on the trip :D

This is my first trip to the Rockies of any sort and I've looked at some of the scenes from the national parks and they look amazing. I'm from the US as well (MA) and this will be my third time in Canada, first time west of Toronto, and my first big camping trip.

Who else is counting down the days? Hahah. I can't wait to meet both of you! Don't laugh at me too much when I struggle to put up a tent. :lol:

Haha I definitely am! I can't believe it's just over two weeks away now... that's crazy. Same here, I'm excited to meet everyone who's going on the trip! I might laugh at first but then I'll be sure to lend a hand :)

I'm too counting down the days. Because of travelling to Toronto before I am leaving tomorrow by plane. :-)

Nice, that's awesome! Safe travels! I've been to Toronto, and even though it was only for a short time, it seems like a great place :D

Just wondering: is anyone gonna be in Calgary the day before the trip departs? We could always meet for drinks/explore the city together! :D

Yes, I will be there on Friday night! I am definitely down for meeting up and grabbing drinks/exploring the city :) I don't think we have a formal meeting with everyone until Saturday night so we should have time that day to explore more.

I will be there, too. Because of going climbing I don't when coming back. But maybe I can meet you in the evenings.
