ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I am going on the Sept. 7 trip. I've signed up for a roommate, but haven't heard anything. I'll be coming into St. Louis on Saturday, staying at the airport Hilton...and going to St. Charles on Sunday. Richard Brewer, Pleasant Hill CA

I will be on the Sept trip. I signed up for a room mate but do not know if I was assigned one. I thought I might be able to find out on this site, but maybe not. I am coming from Colorado and am really looking forward to the adventure.

I'm a woman Road Scholar who is interested in taking this trip in 2014 and am looking for a travelmate. I've done 25+ Elderhostel/Road Schs and would like to get acquainted before the trip. The Sept. trip suits me the best. Reply here and then we can privately message.

I am on the waiting list for the Sept 2013 departure. I would like to know your opinion of the Tour co-ordinator on the trip. I realize it may not be the same person on each departure, but was the person on top of things and knowledgeable?
Carol Mannchen Apr 29, 2013 at 05:02 PM

When I went in 2011,Sally was the coordinator and Don was the historian. They were both wonderful. I believe she said it was her first trip, and if she has gotten better, I don't see how, except for the bridge incident. If you get a chance, ask them about it. It is a great experience.
Estella King Apr 29, 2013 at 05:06 PM

Thanks for your reply. I judge a tour by it's group leader. That person(s) makes the difference in a good travel experience.

William Gallagher Apr 15, 2013 at 03:18 PM

My wife, Ann, and I have just signed up for the July 29 Lewis & Clark program. We would be interested in chatting with other members of this tour.

Bonnie Duncan Aug 30, 2012 at 05:38 PM

My husband, Ron, and I, Bonnie, will be arriving in St. Louis on 9/6. We are staying at the Parkway Hotel until Sunday when we plan to leave for St. Charles. Is anyone on our trip planning an early arrival in St. Louis? If so, do you want to get together to see the brewery, museums, etc.? Let me know. Bonnie Duncan email me: duncan9798@att.net
