I highly suggest just saving and traveling alone. You never have to worry about others bring late or wanting to do something completely different and causing problems, being called away for emergencies, not getting along. The price really wouldn't lower enough to justify the stress.

I try to never go anywhere with other families or friends. Unless we are really super close and a lot a like. I like to go places on my time frame. Maybe I am selfish but I hate having to adjust my schedule for others.

Sounds awesome, have fun!!
I have too many kids and not enough money, so we don't travel much. :)

I've done a few group trips w/ friends & the best part is probably the car pooling, splitting gas 3 ways is much cheaper. The worst part was probably one of the kids getting car sick, so we had to stop every 1/2 hour & one of the other toddlers wouldn't stop screaming (she hates car rides). It was a 6 hour round trip but everything else was smooth sailing.

Schedules, restaurant choices, hotel choices, behavior expectation differences. Whether we stop at roadside attractions, or drive straight through......we found its easier and less stressful not to travel with others.

Good luck putting your trip together. I'm one of the kind that prefer to go solo or meet up somewhere.
