  • Hey! My name is Tanner Bailey and I am going on this exact trip with ACIS, or at lease I am suppose to. We are a smaller group and may have to push our travel dates back or forward from when we had originally wished to travel. We may also have to switch trips just to be able to go and be with a larger group. Needless to say I will probably be doing this trip. So is there any information or tips or advice that you could give to me? That would be great! I am really looking forward to the trip! Thanks so much!
