The Adventure - An 18 day camping tour out in Western states of California, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Utah, and Arizona with a 5 day extension to visit friends in Sedona and Prescott, Arizona in May/June 2015.


My friend from Australia had emailed me that she was going to take a camping tour with Grand American Adventures - "Best of the West".  The tour was 18 days long with a maximum of 13 people.  I looked over the itinerary and found very little duplication with things I have done in the past.  Many places had been so remote from where I was driving at the time that I just didn't want to drive so far.  Other places were so crowded I couldn't be bothered to explore them.  This tour would give me an opportunity to reconnect with my friend in Australia, see places I've never been, and do things out of my comfort zone.  So I decided "Y Knot".  It would give me a break from dealing with all the affairs from my husband's passing and help wean me off the internet.
