This trip will be a VAN trip which may require some luggage restriction; however, we will have a van for getting around in Ketchum for the Trailing of the Sheep Festival.  The number of travelers will be between 10 and 14. With the fewer travelers than my previous plans, now the cost is $1,319 per person, double occupancy.  There is no change for travelers that have already sent in their deposits. The cost for single occupancy is $1,886.  If 3 travelers wish to share a double queen bedroom the cost for each will be $941.  The deposit is $719 and is NONREFUNDABLE.  Travelers are always encouraged to take trip insurance to cover unanticipated cancellations. Please send your deposits of $719 to the WI office now and mark for “BOISE 2019”. 

There will not be any mailed information so one person in each traveling group needs to have an email address. I need to know each traveler’s full name as on your identification and birth date.
