    Default Road trip Western US & Canada (British Columbia and Alberta) : Wanna join ?

    Hi everyone!

    We are two long-time french friends, Caroline (23) and Ugo (22), who like to travel, go out, visit new places, discover new cultures, meet new people, share experiences. We would like to discover North America doing a road trip during the summer to visit a maximum of places in total freedom!
    We're planning on doing two 'loop' road trips in a row this summer:
    - the first one from (about) July 21st to August 4th departing from San Francisco. Places to visit: SF city, Yosemite, Sequia forest, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and more...
    (in between: flight from SF to Seattle)
    - the second one from (about) August 5th to August 19th departing from Seattle. Places to visit: Seattle, Vancouver, Banff National Park, Jasper, Calgary etc...

    We see this trip like an almost random itinerary: we know the main places that we want to see but in between we would eventually stop wherever it looks nice. We also plan to camp as much as possible except when we visit cities. For both trips, we want to rent a car but as we are only two and under 25, it's going to be pretty expensive so we are looking for two (or more!) people in their twenties to share this amazing experience with us!

    Anyways, wherever you come from, if you're kind of laid back, curious, easy going, fun, like to hike and discover new places, you are very welcome to send an email and we may set up a Skype meeting to see if we can get along with each other. And if you have any suggestion, don’t hesitate!

    Default Possibly 2 couples for 2 trips ?

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    I wish you good luck in finding travel buddies, you have a nice relaxed trip planned by the looks of things. With 2 seperate loop trips, I guess that it would possible for 2 different couples to join you on each one, if you couldn't find a couple to join you the whole way and do both?

    Hi Dave,

    Yeah sure two different couples could be possible for the two trips. Though we are now hesitating with doing a larger - only one - road trip with more kilometers. We would depart from Seattle and go to San Francisco, then do Yosemite, Death Valley, Las Vegas Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and go straight up North through Utah, Wyoming and Montana (Arches National Park, Salt Lake City, Yellowstone park, Glacier Park). Then cross the border towards Calgary, Banff, Jasper, continue North and take the Alaska Highway to Yukon and finally go South on Highway 37, 16 and 97 to Vancouver and finally come back to Seattle.
    Depending on passing through Yukon or not, it would be in total 10,000 or 12,000 km which, as we heard can be doable within one month.
    Though we are still open to any other option if anyone is interested and/or has similar envies for the trip. Are you personally interested in taking part of the adventure?

    Cheers,

    Ugo
