Looking forward to meeting Perrilyn and Nancy in Australia, and others who are joining the group March 10 after the New Zealand portion...

Perrilyn Griffin Jan 16, 2016 at 02:39 PM

My name is perrilyn Griffin and I live in Missoula Montana. March 10 will be my first trip with RS although travel is my favorite avocation. I would be grateful for a roommate.

Martha Yeager Jan 12, 2016 at 04:32 PM

Hi, I'm signed up for my first trip on March 10 and I'm a solo.

Pam Rittenhouse Jan 07, 2016 at 09:12 PM

Oops. Typo in my message. Excited about the TRIP, not trio....now need new clothes, especially for warm weather, while it's cold here in the Puget Sound. Better start looking I guess....

Pam Rittenhouse Jan 07, 2016 at 09:05 PM

Anyone going on Odyssey Down Under, Feb 25- March 26? I am from Issaquah, WA., going solo, but signed up for a roommate. So excited about the trio!
Rick Hamrick Feb 03, 2016 at 07:40 PM

Pam, my wife, Sally, and I will be joining you and others for the 2/25-3/26 trip downunder. Look forward to meeting you, perhaps at LAX, pre-departure. We're from the Detroit area in Michigan.

Nancy Julien Jan 07, 2016 at 06:07 PM

I know it is a bit early, but anyone going on the Apr 7-May7 trip?
MARY CLARIDGE Jan 08, 2016 at 09:50 PM

I am! I am! Going with my sister-in-law and can hardly wait. I'm in Wisconsin and she's in Denver area and we will meet up in LA.for the long flight.
Nancy Julien Jan 08, 2016 at 09:58 PM

I also live in WI :) Waunakee (next to Madison) Traveling alone and I also am VERY EXCITED! Am flying with Air New Zealand Airlines - my flight is 12.5 hours from LAX - not too bad -
MARY CLARIDGE Jan 08, 2016 at 10:15 PM

Ours is 15 hours to Sydney, then 3 more to Aukland on Qantas. Going to be a long trip, but so worth it. Looking forward to meeting you. Have you done other RS trips? This is my 7th.
Nancy Julien Jan 08, 2016 at 10:20 PM

I only have taken one trip with RS to Ashville NC last Summer. Where do you live in WI?
MARY CLARIDGE Jan 08, 2016 at 10:31 PM

Oh, I thought it but didn't write it--Middleton!
Nancy Julien Jan 08, 2016 at 10:47 PM

You live just a few miles from me. Small World!

Linda Dec 31, 2015 at 12:10 PM

Going on the March 10 trip. Anyone else? Hoping we have a smaller group than past trips.
Perrilyn Griffin Jan 06, 2016 at 01:38 AM

I am looking forward to the March 10, just got my flights by email today. This is my first trip wiith Road Scholar and really liiking forward to it. I am going to LA a couple of days prior so I can revisit the Getty Museum. I am traveling solo and already packing.
Martha Yeager Jan 13, 2016 at 03:13 PM

I'm on the March 10 trip solo also. Where do you live?
Martha Yeager Jan 13, 2016 at 03:13 PM

Actually I go by Suzie.
Linda Jan 15, 2016 at 03:52 PM

Live just south of Denver in Centennial, CO. I have been on a number of RS trips and they always do a great job. I am traveling solo but did request a roommate. New Zealand and Australia have been on my "list" for awhile and excited to be going so soon. Flying out of LA on Quantas #12 to Sydney and then to Auckland. Coming into LA that afternoon but might change to day before.
Martha Yeager Jan 15, 2016 at 04:12 PM

This is my first RS trip but I have traveled quite a bit. This is almost the last big item on my "list". I've asked for a roommate also. I live in Northern Indiana but lived in Colo Spgs for 7 years in the 70's. I think I'm on the same flight out of LA. I have a friend in CA so I'm heading to Long Beach and LaJolla the first part ofFebruary. I'm really looking forward to the trip and would appreciate any RS tips you have.
Linda Jan 15, 2016 at 04:47 PM

Any single woman on March 10th trip want to split the tab on a hotel room near LAX the night prior to our flight?

Barbara Franklin Dec 25, 2015 at 09:30 AM

Holiday Greetings from Charleston, SC where it's 8l degrees! Enjoying Christmas festivities but ready to move on to the Odyssey Down Under! Barbara and Paul Franklin
