We just got back from our 8th trip last month...While we have been there with friends and did have a good time, we both agree that our best trips were when we went solo. With friends, you may not fully be 1000% comfortable, you may feel you have to be around them most of the time or run on some kind of schedule. When you go solo, you're a free bird and you meet the best people and have the craziest times for those few days, and will make the best memories. So while yes, we all have friends t hat would enjoy TTR, my wife and i still enjoy going solo way more. Always a better experience!
