2020 Great Rocky Mountain Caravan

★★★★★
Better than Terrific!!! We saw and did things we never would have considered on our own...like zip lining over the Grand Canyon!!! Wow - what a thrill:) We made new friends from all over the US who we hope to see again on future trips. All-in-all, it was very well organized and with Vera and Jim leading us it was definitely "A Trip of a Lifetime"! If you are considering it - JUST DO IT!!! you won't regret it.

Great Rocky Exploration 2020

This was our first caravan and it was beyond fantastic. Jim and Vera were our wagon masters, I can't say enough how wonderful these two were. From the moment the caravan got together Vera made sure that we felt comfortable with everyone. She was like a mother hen to each and everyone. Jim was so on point with providing direction and answering any questions that we had. He always kept us informed. When we had a question about our rig (we are newbies) he was right there to give us the answers. The tail gunners Richard and Vicki were so nice. They were always there to help and made sure everyone was accounted for. Now as far as the trip was concerned it was way beyond our exceptions. I realized through this trip I don't want to be a city girl anymore! I love the wide open spaces and the people are so different in a good way. I have to say if I were to move it would have to be Utah. The colors of the mountains are ever changing. We won't be moving there because, we after this trip are for sure full time RV'rs . Before we left we booked a trip for the Southwest caravan with Vera and Jim. We also booked the Alaska 2022 with them, the 2021 was sold out. Bottom line if you are looking for a fantastic time and a little shy then Vera and Jim are the one's you want to book with. They are way beyond a 5 and so was the trip. I hope my review will encourage you to book a trip of a lifetime.
