See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
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.

On Feb 22 I arrive JAX about Noon, and will have a rental car, thus can offer a free ride to Lake City if needed. Email me at hjones@prodigy.net

I live in Cocoa, FL, will be driving up to Lake Mary on Mar. 8 and returning Mar 13 if anyone would like to share my car and expenses. I am flutestar@earthlink.net

Still looking for a ride or someone to share a car rental for the trip beginning Feb 1. I have rented a car, but would love to share the cost or cancel it. My flight gets in from DC before 2:00, and I leave on Friday at 7. However, I wouldn't mind getting to the airport early and sitting with a good book. Please email me at carolite4@earthlink.net.

Carol Lite Nov 24, 2014 at 10:00 PM

please contact me at carolite4@earthlink.net if you would like to share a car rental for the 2/1/15 - 2/6/15 program. I arrive JAX at 2:00 Sunday and depart 7:30 pm Friday. Or if you're driving and have room for one more, I'd be happy to pay for gas!

Judith Perlman Oct 17, 2014 at 06:34 PM

please contact perl1104@aol.com to share ride from JAX airport on 1/18/15

Captain Bob Swindell Mar 03, 2014 at 04:44 PM

I will be driving up from Stuart, Fl, probably late, 75 or 95 should it fit any needs or plans. Late on the 9th 3/2014

Gail Kelly Mar 01, 2014 at 11:53 PM

Anyone driving from Atlanta for the trip beginning on March 9th?

Michele Ruopp Jan 26, 2014 at 10:01 AM

Please contact me at skyblueskies@comcast.net if interested in sharing a rental car from JAX on 3/9/14 and returning on 3/14/14.
