Would like to make contact with anyone signed up for this trip for possible ride sharing, experience sharing, etc. Contact me at email@example.com. 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!
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.
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.
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.
