Would like to make contact with anyone signed up for this trip for possible ride sharing, experience sharing, etc. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's 'talk'.
Thanks for your reply. I agree that this trip may not occur in August and realistically it may not be the best fit for me. I hope it works ot for you. Considering all of the uncertainty with possible cancellations…
I can't believe no one wants to talk about the trip!
Try contacting on your date specific page. Go to MY ACCOUNT>UPCOMING PROGRAMS. On bottom right is blue button to join trip discussion. Select DISCUSSION from there and see if you get a bite.
To date, I have made a point of opening a discussion on date specific page and have never received a response. But as they say every once in a while a blind squirrel finds a nut.
I have not done this trip but:
Marble Canyon has California Condors at the bridge. They tend to hang around the understructure. Last year I was lucky enough to see maybe 5-6 condors. Have been there many times and nary a one. Stunning. Bring Binocs if you can.
Hi, I am not on this trip but I saw on an email newsletter alert that space is still available. I am scheduled for a trip to Switzerland early Sept and reconsidering now and thinking about re-booking a US trip. I have never done Road Scholar and have been to the Grand Canyon for a short visit and little hiking. I love camping and in pretty good shape for mid-60 but never rafted. What drew you to this trip beside the wonderful scenery and adventure? Are you concerned at all about the heat - that is my concern since temp is likely 90-100F during the day. Do you have rafting experience from other trips? Since it is rated highest for activity level, I was hesitant. Sorry to take your post to benefit my decision. I haven't heard anyone post about my trip to Switzerland either and I posted last week. The trip specific discussion board is not working for my trip and I need to ask RS again to fix it.
Good Morning! I'm signed up for 2 trips mid August in Wisconsin. If they cancel I would love to go on this trip. I would be driving down from Denver. So far I have had 4 trips cancelled. I wish RS wouldn't cancel all trips, some would be OK (some states).
Hi, Thanks for stopping by. Yes, the heat is an issue, but the bottom of the canyon will not be that hot. I have canoe, and kayak experience, not rafting. But as they used to say in Sea World-you will get wet. You don't have to hike. Just stay with the raft near the river 'chilling out'. I love desert hiking. And I love the Southwest, and would move there if my life was different. RS is a very good trip service. I've been on at least three so far. Cancellations now up through end of July. Not optimistic for this trip. Need a Plan B. Hope things work out for you. It's a lot of work to have fun.
Well, we'd love to have you join. The more the merrier-at least before the virus changed things. RS Cancellations now through the end of July. I have my doubts about the trip. We all need alternatives to look at. Hope it works out for you.
Thanks for your reply. I agree that this trip may not occur in August and realistically it may not be the best fit for me. I hope it works ot for you. Considering all of the uncertainty with possible cancellations I will likely postpone Switzerland until 2021 so I can have the full experience without added rules and limitations. TBD before full payment is due.
