Here's your chance to not only meet and travel with your fellow/fellowette Casitans, but also to check off four more National Parks from your Bucket List.

Don Taylor (DoninUT) has graciously offered to lead another group on a tour of the southern Utah National Parks and the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

The group will spend 10 days traveling, meeting first on Thursday, May 20th at Capital Reef NP for two nights. The next eight days will cover Escalante State Park (Grand Staircase), Bryce Canyon NP, Zion NP and the north rim of the Grand Canyon NP, with two nights at every destination. Fabulous sightseeing and photos, hiking and comaradarie guaranteed.

There will be a limit of 12 trailers. If more than 12 trailers sign up, we will start a wait-list.

This Tour is NOT recommended for those who cannot tolerate high altitudes.

For all of the details, CLICK HERE and download both the Utah-AZ Itinerary and Guidelines. Please look over both of these documents before making your decision to join this Tour. You will be responsible for making your own campground reservations, when necessary, in a timely manor.

If you're interested in being part of this Tour, please add your name to this thread.
We also encourage those who participated in the 2008 and 2009 Utah Tours to add their raves, photos and links to photo albums.
Jerry & Wanda published a bunch of terrific 2009 Tour photos.

Hey Jerry --

Glad to see you're going to join us! I'm trying to talk Kathi into going again too. She went on the 2008 Tour.

We'll have to catch up on how the rest of your trip went after the three of us parted company in Pagosa Springs this past July.
Hope you saw my pictures from that trip (link below). Lunch at that Mexican restaurant was great!

Hi Eileen,
Somehow, I added a reply on the other page.
Anyway, that's a big YES, I'm coming. Had so much fun last year, I'm going to do it again. This time i will have reservations, as I learned the hard way last year, but got lucky.
Silverton was great and will tell you about it when we meet. Saw your pic's on the NM trip, they were great.
The list is getting short, so maybe Kathi and Ed will jump on board.

Jerry

Eileen, count us in sounds great.

We just completed an 8 day trip to Sun City West. The Casita performed flawlessly. Anxious to see more of the southwest.

WOW, that was fast. I blinked my eyes and all but one slot was filled!

Welcome to you all. It will be good to meet you all and to again see some of you who have made the tour before. (Thanks for the kind words, Jerry. I'm sure we will have fun again next spring.)

To those of you who may see this thread late and decide there won't be a slot for you, I would suggest you put your name on the "wait list". It never fails, "the best laid plans etc. etc." It is simply a fact that very often something comes up and someone has to cancel out. Last year was a good example of that. I would love to see everyone who wants to go to be able to go but it hasn't happened yet.

I've done this tour three times and still enjoy both the natural beauty and the social aspect of the trip very much. Even tho you have visited this area before, I think you will most likely see something of interest you didn't see before. I am convinced that the area of southern Utah and northern Arizona is some of the most beautiful in our beautiful country and I love to share it.

I'm looking forward to another fun time come spring.

Please add my name to the #12 spot! I'm still Casita-less but will be placing my order very soon for factory delivery with plenty of time to spare before meet up at Capitol Reef NP.
