Beautiful Boise, ID and Trailing of the Sheep Festival
October 10th to 17th, 2013, Air and Coach Travel
Join Stan Follis and my co-leader, Walter Konopka Jr. for an 8-day (Thursday - Thursday) exploration of southwestern Idaho. This will be much like our trips in 2003, ‘07 and ‘11 but we will find new attractions and revisit the best of the previous trip. We will fly to Boise and coach to the Sun Valley area for a few days in this mountain paradise, usually visited in the winter, but we will see it in the fall and the “Trailing of the Sheep” festival. Our accommodations will be at the Christophe Condominiums in Ketchum, ID. We will see the Sawtooth Mountains and Craters of the Moon National monument. In Boise we will stay downtown and walk along the Boise River. We will walk in graceful old Victorian neighborhoods, walk through the grand state capitol building and explore this charming city. For those of you who knew Kathy Follis, we will visit with her sister and family. Other possible attractions will be announced in coming months such as a piano recital, the Seibel family band and the rich Basque heritage in Boise.
Cost is estimated to be $1,099 for double occupancy and single supplement of $300. This will include: Southwest airfare, lodging, coach, scheduled attractions, breakfasts and farewell dinner. The price is based on 20 participants, if we have significantly fewer travelers, we will use a van.
We are requesting a $300 deposit now and it will be refundable until I book the airline tickets in a month or two.
Please send your $300 deposit to the office now because your delay may cause us to cancel the trip. Please enclose a SASE if we do not have your email address. Call Stanley at 619.222.3447 if you have any questions.

At its annual retreat in May, the Walkabout Board considered a list of possible trips to be offered to its supporters during 2013. No specific dates for trips have been set, and prices won’t be available until an interest list is created and details for the trips are researched. Following is a list of trips proposed:
Boston, MA. Walk the Freedom Trail and enjoy taking the “T” transit to many area destinations;
Charleston/Savannah. A weeklong trip devoted to historical sites and trails split between these destinations;
California’s Northern Coast. Start from the redwood forests at the top and enjoy a ride (and walks) down the beautiful coast;
Cuba. As a cultural/educational organization Walkabout can get you into this Latin country only 90 miles from our southern border!
Washington, DC. This trip will feature the Smithsonian’s flight center near Dulles Airport, the new MLK Memorial and the Frederick Douglass Museum, in addition to visits to the Smithsonian & Kennedy Center.
Florida: The focus will be on flora and fauna often found in the state park system.
New Orleans: We’ll explore the downtown music scene as well as surrounding area.
Toronto/Niagara Falls: A Great Lakes adventure with a Canadian flavor!
Vermont: Enjoy this World Heritage State like a native.
NY City: a week in the Big Apple, with museums, parks and city streets.
Cleveland, OH: Visit middle America and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
San Francisco: An extended trip through the great city sites that make this repeatable year after year.
San Antonio & Austin, TX: The River Walk is vastly expanded, and we’ll explore it all, as well as the capital.
Australia and New Zealand: This three-week plus trip will take you a continent away touring as much as we can via van, bus and plane.
Walkabout needs your input on which trips will actually be offered. You may fill out the attached survey or call the office and “vote” for trips that are of interest to you. You can also add your own places of interest to the survey. You can also email Walkabout with your selections. You need to “vote” or offer input by August 1, which is when we’ll actually start working on our 2013 offerings. Once you see the offerings in the newsletter, you should contact the office and asked to be placed on the “interest list” for each trip which will be offered. Once on that list you’ll receive advance notice of trip details and requests for deposits. Most trips will fill from the interest list, and you may never see the trip advertised in the newsletter again.
