TrekAmerica: Covid-19 pandemic led to loss of

In 2020 and after 48 years of fun-filled group trips across the USA, Canada, Alaska and Central America, TrekAmerica ceased all travel operations.

The company’s announcement was quite depressing at the time:

We’re incredibly sad to say that due to ongoing uncertainties from COVID, TrekAmerica won’t be continuing to run trips. This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make. For almost 50 years, we’ve been honoured to be part of your incredible travel stories. Even though we’re driving off into the sunset, we hope the friends and memories our Trek community have made will live on in our Trekkers for many more years to come.

It seems that the company dropped a number of domain names associated with its travel business. One of them was, registered in 1996. expired, dropped, and was auctioned off on DropCatch where it sold today for the sum of $16,041 dollars. The auction’s winner, “latedomainer,” takes home a domain used by a dissolved business.

But is this domain name acquisition safe?

Footloose is also the name of a classic song by Kenny Loggins, who performed the song in the movie by the same name by Paramount Pictures, starring Kevin Bacon.

Paramount Pictures owns at least two live trademarks for Footloose. There are several other registered marks for Footloose, per the USPTO database.

Yet another domain formerly owned by TrekAmerica,, is in a DropCatch auction currently.
