I would like very much to talk to some folks who have taken this trip before. I am leaving Sat 22 Oct 2011, so time is short.
I tried several times before to POST this info, but it was always after OAT had closed and I got frustrated in trying to figure out the way to do a POST and forgot to call them the next day. In talking to OAT today, they indicate they will try to make the web site more user friendly for Old Folks (you know - OF's - what else could it stand for???).
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, phone numbers: 360-479-6652, 360-362-1616, or least desired my Cell ph: 360-362-9466 (because it is costly).
Call any time between 8 AM to 10 PM (0800 to 2200) Pacific Coast time (11 AM to 1 AM (1100 to 0100) East Coast time, and time zones in between. If it costs you to call me, send an email with your ph number and the time you would like me to call. Then I will call you back on my dime.
I want to get a general feel of the trip, rigors, climate, clothing to bring, etc., and definitely would like to talk to someone.
