TREKKERS FEEDBACK - Southern Sun
Ben (Hey, Gringo!) Bradley, UK
Now, before I begin, I went on this trek with no expectations what so ever, only the fact that I would be going to certain places in the brochure and finish up in Los Angeles. I thought there would be some nice sight-seeing, and a bit of a fun here and there. HOW WRONG WAS I - From start to finish the trek was amazing, fun, had awesome views, and memories for a lifetime.
After doing Camp America, I went on the trek from New York and met 13 complete strangers and by the time we got to Los Angeles I wanted to do it all over again the next morning. The trek started off a bit quiet and peaceful in Washington, but when we got to Tennessee, OMG - we did an afternoon of whitewater rafting followed in the evening by what can only be described as a party I'll never forget. For those who were there - our van rocked, literally, lol.
From then on, it never stopped. As we went along with 4 other groups doing the same trek, we had some amazing nights. Next was New Orleans. If you've ever heard anything about this place, believe me - it's all TRUE. A party capital in its own right on Bourbon Street, not for just one night but two. A few days later we went onto Del Rio & into Mexico. I think the 'Tequila Club' says it all for a night's entertainment. That night and the bus ride home, as far as I am concerned, is something of a legend now.
Then onto Monument Valley, after a surreal, out of this world night camping with the cowboys and the sunset horse ride. 4x4 tour with the Indians a day later and then onto the 8th Wonder of the World - The Grand Canyon. A sunset evening meal looking over the Grand Canyon with pizza in the one hand and a cup of Champagne in the other after my helicopter flight was a day that left me speechless.
Onto Lake Powell where a ghost, a cow, a prisoner, the clown, some mechanics, a couple of hippies, and a witch decided to have a crazy night of fun. The photo's say it all, lol. Next was Zion National Park, which was well worth another hike on the trek to yet again another awesome view! From then on, it was onto none other than Las Vegas, where the party van continued. A day later we spent a day with Mickey Mouse and co at Disneyland, and then finished up at Los Angeles.
Everything was out of this world, well organised and AWESOME every step of the way. A huge thanks to ALEX FORNES (senior), and a big thanks to such a great group of people that I met on the trek and in my group.
Thanks a lot.
