Summary: This tour ruined my life! Not really, I met my wife, decided working wasn't all there was, and haven't stopped touring since. ; Commercial Trip
How did ACA Help? All the tour books were supplied as were the nightly stops. As a leader we only had to stay on schedule.
Health Issues: Dehydration! Sneaks up on you and takes a while to get rid of.
Motivation: It provided the opportunity for alot of individuals with the same desire to achieve their goal and do something some people only dream of.
Most Challenging Aspect:Getting over a broken foot that happened during leadership training and not being to train for 2 months before departure.
Favorite Experience: Meeting my future wife.
Least Favorite: Getting over that darn foot.
Tips: Don't be afraid to take a chance. It's over before you know it. The anticipation is only part of the experience and that turns into one of the best experiences you can have.
