Keep in mind, since this is an expedition, it will not be a refined trip like our other tours. This trip is designed only for those individuals that are prepared to endure rugged travel conditions.
All expedition-members must be willing to expect the unexpected and agree to be very flexible with regard to itineraries and travel conditions. We will adapt to our camp locations as we go.
The expedition will be limited to ten tour-member RV’s, all under 33 feet in length. The cost of all tours and events will be in addition to the tour fee. We will advise you of different options available with regard to tours and side trips. When possible we will also assist with these tour arrangements through travel agencies and get the best price available for your side trips.
Expect no RV facilities with hookups at any point during the trip. Fresh water filling and holding tank dumping arrangements will be made.
