Hi Andy,

Nice to meet you to :) I've never been to the west coast either but I'm so excited. I love camping so should be good fun! I dont turn 21 until august which is highly frustrated so I'm taking it Positively meaning I wont gamble all of my money :p Have you done any travel tour like this before? Where abouts are you from in SE London?

I did Roam Thailand for 2 weeks last year with G Adventures and the tour sights and group atmosphere were full-on amazing, so i'm looking forward to doing another tour. Not having to worry about sorting buses/trains/hotels means can really enjoy everything westcoast has to offer. BBQ + camping under the stars will be ace! I will bring my boom boom ipod speakers for tuuuuunes.
I'm actually from kent but moving to bromley area. where are you from?
Get some fake uni library-card ID or something - the casino entertainment will be immense!

heyy i completely forgot that i set this up! woops! - doing the same dates so will all be together on the tour!
As if we are all from the home counties?! I'm from Essex, still from there and work in the city. looking forward to a good break chilling in all the national parks and camping, bbqs, hiking!
Andy - how have you found G adventures before? I am loving the idea of no organisation/driving etc when there! What uni's are you both at?
Hope the studies are going well!
I've been to vegas before and done a bit of the west coast but am desperate to do it again camping as it was amazing! now it's getting closer i will prob check this more often and remember i have it! x

Hey,
Yeh I am getting pretty excited...its so soon! woop woop!

Yeh I am taking a big travelling rucksack, just because I have one and find them easier
than suitcases, but I guess either doesn't matter. Taking sleeping bag and liner and few head
torches, part from that just normal holiday clothes!

Will see ya in the morning when you arrive as I get there the night before.

If ya on facebook I am called Sophia Gladys, as don't really come on here much either and be
cool to chat to sort of know someone before we get there! If you know what I mean! EXCITING! :D

Hi,
cool to meet some of the group here at the watering hole. :)
I'm Christian from Dortmund in Germany and I begin to feel quite excited, too, as time is getting closer. The tour will be my very first visit to the US. Looking forward to meet you all.

@Tina: I'll be arriving at LA a few days early, too. Won't stay at hacienda before saturday, but anyway...
