Mindy’s Testimonial

Name: Mindy Hardy
Where From: Ohio

AB Trips she’s been on so far: Grand Canyon and the Wild West, Trail of the Ancients, Colorado Peaks & Canyons, Great Glacier Adventure, Washington Coast to Cascades, Dakota Badlands & Black Hills (2 times), Canadian Rockies

Favorite Hike or Activity:  I can’t narrow it down to one thing, so I’ll generalize. I absolutely love the hiking. I love going new places and having new adventures. I loved introducing my husband Rick and my step-daughter Delaney to the national parks and all they have to offer.  I also love all the friendships I have made while on the bus and the fun times we’ve had off the bus as well.

Favorite Park(s): Glacier National Park, followed closely by a whole lot of other parks I have visited on and off AdventureBus (like Bryce Canyon, Dry Tortugas, Great Smoky Mountain, Tetons, Mesa Verde just to name a few).

Favorite AB Meal(s): Smoked salmon chowder, burritos, Navajo stew & fry bread, and Stephanie’s special celery-free tuna salad.

Comments: I grew up camping and visiting the national parks and have camped all my life with family. In 2004 I found Adventure Bus, which introduced me to a whole new family. I solo tripped three times, brought a friend on two trips, then got married and brought my husband Rick on two trips and my step-daughter Delaney on one trip. We’ve had to create our own version of Adventure Bus trips a few times due to life getting in the way, but there’s nothing like being on the bus. We definitely hope to be back on the bus soon!
