Well, I'm in a new province of residence. I can do one heck of a lot of touring just by taking side trips while out for this or that, ie take another way home from hair cut trip to the lumber place.........

We have the family reunion in Pinetop, AZ this summer.
Now...what are we going to do...well it was originally going to be via Las Vegas then Grand Canyon...
Then we found out the extended family thought to do Vegas after. So now we are looking at spending some time in Bryce/Zion that area. I still working on all the details...and plans.

Was planning on heading back home this summer to Newfoundland, but with the job situation, that's put on hold.
We'll see if the wife gets sick of me hanging around the house this summer and tells me to go anyways. :lol:

Looks like it will be in August. No idea where we are going. Probably the gorge and seven falls, if I got the names right. Maybe you can answer this one. We heard you have to buy a ticket for everything now, you can't just pick and choose anymore. Is this true?

They are charging for a lot of stuff now. However they have always charged at Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak etc. I am not aware of them charging at 7 Falls. I take it you mean the one by Colorado Springs. You can still drive to the top of Mt Evans fo free, as far as I know and I prefer that drive and view to Pikes Peak.. Here is a good website for it: Mount Evans Road. Let me know what you think may be charging and I'll check it out!

Our plans for the season include at least one long trip - this time to the Southeast. Two weeks in midsummer for our niece's wedding, adding some sightseeing stops on the way home from that. Hoping for another long trip or a couple shorter ones later in the season too.

We will be traveling to Northern Wisconsin (Lake Tomahawk) via Iowa and Illinois. My spouse's hometown is Fulton,Illinois and we haven't been there in years so will visit that community on our way. Will come back on a more northerly route and visit some sites along the way. We hold to the back roads so will do a bit of planning to accommodate that effort.
Otherwise we will be camping in Colorado the remainder of the summer and will travel during the fall to places unknown as yet.
Wishing you all a great summer!

In March we did 3 shake down trips around Cape Cod. Everything worked great. In April we took off for CT- Aces High Campground, The Poconos -WT Family Campground, Gettysburg, PA- Gettysburg Campground and West Point, NY- Black Bear Campground. Now we are doing weekend trips to Cape Cod, Vermont and NH. Places we have already booked--Mother's Day weekend-Scusset Beach, Cape Cod to fish and ride our bikes along the canal. Memorial Day Weekend-East Falmouth Cape Cod Resort for 3 days. June 5,6,7,8 Brewster Cape Cod- Saltwater Campground. Also a trip to the Daytona 400 on the 4 of July with my grown sons and their friends. Six days with 5 guys sharing the driving, so we will go straight down and back. In July & August the state of Maine,- Camden Hills, Eastport, Moosehead Lake and Naples. In August we take my 93 year old dad to Saratoga Raceway in upstste NY to visit the horse track ( he used to go every summer when he was younger). Fishing trip planned in September to up state NY near Lake Placid. We just purchased our RV in February, so want to use it as much as possible while we have our 2 year warrenty. Our 2 Dachshunds, Hansel & Getal, love to travel and have adapted to vacationing in the RV. Once my DW retires in 3 years, then we will start to take longer trips. Alaska will be our first long distance destination. We rented an Rv in the past, now I guess we really have the RV bug!

We're just gonna head down to south eastern British Columbia this year. We went to Utah and Colorado last year, and while it was a great trip, it was a whole heck of a lot of driving in 2 weeks. Since I only have 2 weeks of vacation left for this year we'll stay closer to home and likely go to Fairmont Hot Springs, Kikimum Creek, Moyie Lake and the general area around Cranbrook. If the Canuck buck comes up a little higher against the green back, we might slide on down to Spokane, WA or Coeur d'elene (sic?), ID for a few days, but I doubt that we'll be further than 6 hours from home.
We'll still head out on all of the long weekends and most other weekends as our camping season is rather short so we like to make the most of it.
There is no such thing as a bad day camping.

Well, since I'm back in Wyoming (I just can't get out of this place) for the Summer, we set up a couple of small tipis for the grandchildren, a big one for the adults and my Great Uncle's Airstream. First thing I did was buy a beater Wrangler 4.0L to drive locally - it's a real rez ride! There's no buildings on the farm, and if there were we would have torn them down. The crops are all planted - barley, sugar beets, pinto beans and our naturally occuring alfalfa, so now is the time to play. This weekend, we're off to Yellowstone's backcountry, which is only 20 miles from the farm - as the crow flies. Other trips involve Mtlogger in his backyard - Mission, Swan Ranges and Glacier Park.

The best time to go. The tourists went home, life returns to that laid back pace that we love down here in the south. The heat is nothing new, heck we didn't even have A/C when we were growing up.That is what God made water for and we have plenty of it.

Mostly the same old stuff for us, just hopefully more of it if gas prices stay lower than last year!

We are planning a first time trip over to Carlyle Lake in Illinois in July. I hear the catfishing in that lake is amazing!
