Important Current Trip Update

Posted on 06 September 2014 by luther

The Trip Continues  Day 25

Today is Saturday Sept 6 and we just landed in Denver.

I choose to take the $11.50 bus to the center of Denver it’s the easiest and fastest way  (1/2 price seniors)

The Plan was to  edit video and  upload the imagery for this website, the All America Vacation Facebook Page and the YouTube channel for All America Vacation. and make those posts every day……………

Well…….the fact is I have over 300 videos and 2000+ pictures   …  over 150 Gb of imagery.  I will fill  in the basic  Posts and a couple of images for each Day

But I have front seat, HD videos of  25,  of the top 50 roller coasters in the US .

That’s just roller coasters…

There  are videos of everything on the Schedule page… Everything! And much more … and every main photo will be the first of a 10 plus slide show.

BOTTOM LINE….. IT will take 3 weeks to get most things in

More things will go in every day.

When its finished it will include the 50 Year Reunion Party and more.

Please keep checking back

Vacation Tips

Posted on 18 June 2014 by luther

Look for discounts.

  • Do make sure you plan how long it will take to travel. Include breaks if you don’t like travelling or if you have little ones!
  • Bring a map if you’re driving there!
  • Be prepared for the weather. Watch the weather channel for when and where you’ll be gone. Bring clothing appropriate for what the weather will be and something that’s not according to the weather in case it decides to change.
  • Plan as far ahead in advance as possible.
  • If you must change planes, try to arrange so if you have stopovers or anything that it is in a nice airport, so if you have an unexpected (or expected) long layover, you won’t go berserk.

All America Vacation? How Much?

Posted on 18 June 2014 by luther

Estimate the total cost of your vacation. Be sure to include restaurants (food & drink per person each day),  transportation gas for the vehicle to get there, back, and to places nearby where you’ll be staying, hotel rooms per night, and any other activities that you plan on doing. (Amusement parks, swimming, the zoo, etc.) Make sure to ad a Per Diem for spending money. Use a spreadsheet to organize things.

  • If the trip seems a bit pricey, you may want to consider looking harder for discounts. You can normally find accommodation and travel discounts online. A vacation like the All America Vacation – Reunion planned for this summer can not be done without the internet. While you’re at the site, they can also help plan your trip.
  • Work around the price. Normally if you’re visiting family in another state, you can stay at one of their houses overnight (if there’s enough room for everyone). (Free showers, food, television, and bed!) And if you offer to pay for the gas, you can normally borrow a neighbor’s “extra” vehicle for free and they’ll take care of any animals while you’re gone. And if you buy a gas card, you can save money on the gas! You just gotta think ahead!
  • Work some overtime at your job before you ask for a week/weekend off for vacation. They’ll be more likely to give it to you when you want it.
  • Research, Research and more Research will allow you to make all the pieces fit more smoothly together. to not use the internet to the max will cost you time, money and inconvience or make your trip a horror story.
