2013 is upon us !
Let's plan some amazing group trips for 2013.
I'm really eager to try out Alaska, and explore more of Yellowstone!
We're far enough out that we can book tickets for decent prices. I'm in California but I'm willing to fly anywhere within the US.
We also have *plenty* of time to do research.
Personally I'd like to explore more places which still have megafauna (grizzlies, elk, bison, etc).
- Alaska. Maybe a group trek doing around 100-150 miles over a 2 week period in Denali?
- Yellowstone. I went through the Lamar valley in summer 2012 and would like to explore more of the park. My takeaways are that you need to really research your route because a good portion of the park is barren / dry and there may not be any wildlife.
I think what we should do is pick 2-5 destinations and proposals for when we want to go ... then maybe create threads for each one so people can collaborate on trip planning.
I did planning for Yellowstone last year so I have a pretty good idea of how to organize that one...
