Sounds like a real nice trip. As yet we don't know where we will end up this summer.

Wow, looks like a great trip. How fun. We have been to several of them. If you need recommendations where to stay when you get up to the northwest drop me a line. Mt. Rainier is right in our back yard and one of our favorite and most scenic mountain passes is right up the road from us.

We are planning 10 days to the eastern side of the state in May to Lake Roosevelt (created by Grand Coulee Dam) for some good bass fishin' with friends. Jeepn' in Kelowna BC in September with friends and numerous weekends close to home for more Jeepn' and fishin'

Perhaps we will have a chance to put names to faces when you get up this way.

Have a great trip.

I'm hit'n Zion this weekend. We've been there countless times, but never get tired of it.

This year? Who knows? We're going to Chicago, IL and Midway UT for sure, we are weekenders so... wherever we can go in 3 or 4 days is pretty much it.

Daughter has a tourney in Colorado. We are taking the rig from So Cal through Vegas, Utah, and the Rockies. While in Colorado, we will be at Cherry Creek State Park. After tourney, will come home via New Mexico and gonna stop at Grand Canyon Railway RV Park. Take two days to check all the ol' Grand Canyon. Total miles should be around 2500 and will be away from home for about 16 days. Can not wait !!

Chuck, That sounds like an incredible trip. I'm way too far away from retirement to even dream about it.

Our big trip this year will be a 17day trip on both sides of July 4th out to the Colorado Rockies and Black Hills in South Dakota. Mountains are heaven for this flatlander.

After a single night in Loveland, CO at Riverview Campground at the edge of the front range we'll be spending 6 days in Rocky Mountain National Park at the Moraine Park NPS campground. After that we'll meet up with my brother for 3 days in his 5th Wheel in Red Feather Lakes, CO at Bellaire Lake NFS campground. Then we'll move to the Black Hills which we go to every year. 2 Days at the Rafter J in Hill City, SD to meet up with a coworker, then 4 more at Sheridan Lake NFS campground just north of there. Hoping to get a lot of fly fishing in.

Otherwise my summer is full and already planned. My wife works 9's so she has every other Friday off. I take these days off as well so over half of our summer is 3day weekends including holidays. We go camping exclusively to State Parks every one of those weekends from Mid-April to Mid-October as well as a few of the 2-day weekends. I can barely keep up with the yard and house chores in the summer.

Sunday we leave for Elkhart, IN - Monday we pick up our 2011 Rockwood Mini Lite 1809S from RV-Direct. From there to Marion & Indianapolis IN to visit family. Then to Naperville, IL to see more family including our first great grandchild - spending two weeks, thru the week we park in our kids driveway but spend the weekend at Blackwell Forrest Preserve (it is only open on weekends for camping). Then home until the last of June. Our next trip is to AR again to visit family & friends, this will take at least two weeks. In Sept we will go to Newark, OH to see our second great grandchild, again a two or three week trip. Do you see a pattern here, family is our first priority?

We're looking at three trips this summer. The first is off to Branson at the end of June. In July we are looking at New England and maybe up into Nova Scotia. In late August we are going to Houston to see our grandson and I have to teach two days of tax seminars in Texas. Other than that.....I guess that doesn't leave a lot of time for anything other than that.
