Hi

I'm a 32 y/o male from Australia and am really keen on traveling to USA around mid 2012 particularly SF, LA, LV, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, New York, Florida and/or other sites in between, on a backpacker type budget for a period of approx 3 - 4 weeks max. Or I may have to split this trip into two lots depends. I do have a penchant for theme parks and won't want to miss out on the major ones along the way. Anyhow, I'd rather be travelling with someone (you!) to share the experience, cost and to work things out along the way type thing. Alternatively, I'm also open to travelling through Europe instead, doesn't matter as long as I'm going somewhere! I'm rather easygoing friendly down to earth no nonsense type of guy looking for someone similar. If someone's keen on having a chat and sussing things out, drop me a line via my profile or on this thread! Cheers.

Hi JimJam,

I'll be in the US in June - July. Apart from flights I don't have set bookings though.
I was thinking of spending my first week in LA to see disneyland, universal etc..
Then might go on a trek america tour as it covers san diego, the canyon, vegas, yosemite and san fran in 2 weeks.. of course the tour with hostel accomm.. no camping thanks!
Then I was thinking of flying over to the East coast.. I'm not sure yet. PM me and see if any of of our dates in places cross over!

Hi Pam

Seems like everyone's trying to get to the US during the peak season (Jun-Jul) which I'm trying to avoid (ggrrrr) just because things are more expensive and lines are longer. Other than that your plans sound like something I'd be very much interested in doing as well, esp **theme parks**!!! Ahem, my absolute favourite... if you can tell. Are your dates flexible? At this stage, I'll do April through to October, bar 2nd wk of June to 2nd wk of July. But... if things don't pan out my way can I get back in touch with ya? Cheers.

Jim

Hi Jim,

Nah unfortunately my dates aren't flexible.. I've already got my international flights booked.
Let me know how you go and if you think you'll be around in June - July let me know.

Hey, my plans are starting to take shape, fingers tightly crossed it'd result in me actually making this trip! Atm, it appears that I'll be in USA 3 June - 3 July. Which includes a lot of hire car driving around SF LA LV Grand Canyon Yosemite, and flying over to Orlando (Universal Studios, Cape Carnaveral Space Centre), driving up to Wash DC and onto NYC for 10 days, where I'll branch off to Cedar Point theme park, back to NYC and then home. I'll have a travel buddy for nearly all of it, great guy, and keen to add to the numbers esp Cedar Point or the drive from FL to NY. Hit me up if it sounds like something you could put up with!
