Is anyone doing this Rky Mtn adventure trip on August 9?

Terry Meehan Jun 17, 2015 at 06:45 PM

Driving from California with my 15 year old granddaughter. She is the one who picked the trip, very athletic and loves to be outdoors. This is my second inter-generational trip and I am really happy to see that there is some time where kids go one way and grandparents go the other! See you all there!

My 10 year old granddaughter and I will arrive in Salt Lake City for the July 19 trip. We would love to connect with others planning on the same trip...Sandy Goldberg

Hi Sandy, I'm coming with my 10 year old grandson. We arrive late on the 18th- flying in from NY. We are really looking forward to meeting everyone and enjoying the fun activities.
Saundra Goldberg May 18, 2015 at 04:36 PM

Hi Carole, we are also excited. This is my second intergenerational trip with a grandchild. I am planning to spend 2 extra days in Salt Lake CIty after the trip to see the sites there. Do you have any plans to stay?
Carole Bergen May 23, 2015 at 10:13 AM

No we won't be staying. This will be my 4th intergenerational trip - different grandchild each time. This year I'm doing one in June and one in July.
Saundra Goldberg May 25, 2015 at 04:17 PM

Hi again, This is my second trip in 2 years. Next summer I will also have 2 separate trips with grandchildren.

My grandson George (12) and I are really looking forward to this adventure filled week. We 'll be arriving in SLC around 10:45 am and I've arranged transportation to Park City that should get us there a little after noon. Early for the program check in--so is anyone else getting there early as well?

My 13 year old grandson and I will be arriving into SLC around 8 am. Planning on walking around Park City and having lunch. Maybe we can get together for lunch,etc.

My 15 yr old grandson, Kyle, is taking this trip with me June 23. He comes from Sacramento; I come from Montana. Anybody interested in some before trip communication? Kyle's a runner. We've never been on a grandparent trip before. Ruth
