USA 2013 - The Big 25 Tour

Saturday 1st June - Monday 17th 2013

In the same way as the past few years, we are planning to give you daily trip reports whilst we are in the USA. After each day in the parks, we intend to produce a daily trip report, and then upload the report over a couple of pints. Most bar's have free Wi-Fi connectivity in the USA, and that is where we seem to end up every night! It will be evening time for us when we do this (and we're 5-6 hours behind the UK), so you should hopefully have a new trip report to read each morning for the duration of our trip.

On occasions (as was experienced in 2009), it may not be possible to get the trip reports up every day. This can be due to operational reasons such as Dave losing his USB stick, Ryan dragging him round the local bars, laptops having flat batteries, or anything like that so fingers crossed for trouble free trip reports!

The following table usually shows in advance our trip itinery and all the parks we will be visiting during the USA 2013 "The Big 25" Tour, however, this year there are some fantastic surprises for those on the tour, therefore the itinery will be updated each evening UK time, so as not to provide spoilers for those on the trip. Click the red trip report button for a full report and photo's of the day's events when they become available after each day of the trip. (Subject to Wi-fi connectivity in the bar!!)
