Absolutely magnificent!

The Sweet Family, customized road trip Out West to National Parks, August 2019


“Another great day. We parked at Sunset Point, walked the rim to Sunrise Point, and then did the Queen’s Garden Trail. Three of us made it to Queen Victoria. One of my daughters went on to do the Navajo Loop (the hard part). We ate lunch at the lodge and then drove up to the natural bridge and rainbow canyon. All great!!! I will admit that I am getting tired, bur it is a good, happy tired.”


“Today was another great day. Our “hiker” left early to do the Angel’s Landing trail.  The rest of us left a little later and did the Riverside Walk (gorgeous), then the Court of the Patriarchs, the museum and film. Then everyone met up for lunch at Zion lodge and we all did the Lower Emerald Pools trail. (The upper pools trail was closed due to the big rockslide last Saturday). This trip has been absolutely fantastic.”


“Thank you so much for everything you did to make our trip so great! I had a wonderful time! I am so glad you told Mom and Dad about the other parks and things to see in that part of the country. I was amazed by the Grand Canyon, but think my favorite part ended up being Zion. I love the sights, sounds, and smells of water so I really enjoyed the walk along the river and seeing the differences as we got closer to it. Everything went smoothly with all our flights and hotels and I think the five of us had a lot of fun. Thank you again!”

Family getaway to Scottsdale & Grand Canyon

Thanks so much for the Welcome Home gift! What a sweet surprise! We loved the great trip that you created for us! It was perfect! The hotel suite in Scottsdale was outstanding! The tip to stop in Williams was spot on! Frank asked to stop there again on our way back from the Grand Canyon! Your expertise and attention to detail are so appreciated! THANKS SO MUCH! YOU’RE THE BEST!

Honeymoon in Arizona

It was a wonderful experience to finally go on our honeymoon and enjoy the west. It wouldn’t have been the same without your help and suggestions. Everything was great! Hotel was in a great location where we could get to everything and the rental car was way more than we expected for the price. Alex and I had the best trip to Arizona and had some fabulous adventures. We will definitely go back again in the future. Thank you so much for all your help on planning this.​

Family road trip to Yellowstone

Our family had a great trip with the experienced and professional help of Cassie at Oddball Escapes. We put this trip off for years because we didn’t know where to begin. Cassie came highly recommended and she definitely lived up to that standard! She worked very hard and put in many hours to make arrangements for us. Her work, advice and tips were invaluable. We had a great vacation and would use Oddball Escapes again without a moments hesitation.​

Spreading my Dad's ashes

Cassie from Oddball Escapes was great! She helped plan every step of the way of my California trip I was taking to spread my Dad’s ashes among the great Redwood and Sequoia trees. I was not only going to one place in California, but renting a car and going several places. She helped set up the rental car and ensure everything went smoothly at our hotels along the way. She even stayed up late (eastern time) to make sure my late flight (pacific time) would go as planned. After my trip, I was surprised to get a card in the mail with a photo of my favorite picture from the trip! And she also had a keep sake made for me as well! I would definitely travel again with Oddball Escapes. Thank you again Cassie!

It was nice not to have to worry about anything

Cassie from Oddball Escapes is awesome! Our 40th Anniversary was approaching and my Aunt recommended Cassie to help me with the plans. What a life saver she was. All we really had to do was tell her where we wanted to go, how much we were willing to spend and she did the rest. A tweak here and there, texts, emails and a couple of phone calls and presto it’s all set! We had a wonderful 2 week vacation driving from Florida to Washington DC and back through North and South Carolina and finally to St. Augustine. It was so nice to not have to worry about anything. I would definitely use Cassie again for any trips and recommend her highly to anyone planning a trip. Thank you again Cassie you are truly a blessing.

Our family vacation over Christmas

I want to say “thank you” for helping me with the Christmas vacation package. I think the kids will enjoy it. Plus, if this travel gig ever plays out, I think you may have a career in video. 🙂 Loved the personality coming through the video, you were very thorough and both fun and easy to listen to. Enjoy your Christmas Holiday and again… THANK YOU!!
