In early 2015, AllTrips set out to bring two awesome families to the Yellowstone and Jackson Hole area. We wanted to share some of the highlights with you all and share a “Thank You” to some amazing partners that helped make these trips happen.
The Barber Family
Tim Barber was nominated by friends for his service to his country and his family through our AllTrips Gives a Trip giveaway contest honoring past and present service members. Tim, his wife Robin, and daughters Adia and Teagan, spent the 4th of July in Jackson before a year long deployment. We were honored to be able to offer this trip to such a great family and want to thank Tim for his continued service for our country.
“We had a wonderful time during our visit to Jackson Hole. From the time we stepped off the plane till we got back on it again felt so unreal. Jackson Hole is so beautiful that it felt like it was too good to be true. I still can’t believe we were even there. The people and the tour guides at all of the activaties were amazing and very knowledgeable. Having tour guides that knew the area and what to see and not see really made our trip. We had a blast doing it all. The only down side is we couldn’t stay longer.
I just want to thank you and your team at AllTrips for making this trip so memorable for us. Without the contest I’m not even sure I can say we would have ever been able to go to Wyoming. This was a trip of a lifetime. ”

Our second trip was spent sharing the area with Wil, a 9 year old Make-a-Wish kiddo traveling from Virginia with his mom, dad and little sister. Wil was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma about 2 years ago. He was excited to see and explore the Tetons in person and fishing the Snake River. We made all of that happen and more!
