JohnBJ, sounds like you have a plethora of destination options to moochdock (driveway camp). Enjoy your camping to its fullest!

The word is IF

We spent 101 days in the pines near Flagstaff, AZ this summer. It was the hottest summer we've had up there. Since we are boondockers, we actually had to drive up the mountain to the ski resort many afternoons to keep cool. We would drive back home to Phoenix for a night or two every couple weeks to see our kids and grandkids and to do laundry.

We bought a new truck and TT in October with the plan to set out in March after my retirement (DH is already retired). We thought we'd drive up the west coast for a couple of months, then zigzag between Canada and the northern midwest until we reach New England in the early fall. Down the east coast and across the south to make it home by Christmas. Since we don't want be away from family that long, about every 6 weeks we plan to park the rig at airport long term parking (yes, they allow RVs), fly home for a few days and then go back.

Now the big IFs: 1) my sister's cancer treatments are going well and the prognosis is good (absolutely will not go if that's not the case). She plans to fly and stay with us at various locations. 2) Parks, museums and other sightseeing spots are open to visitors 3) we can cross the Canadian border multiple times 4) God's willing and the creek don't rise.

We're spending January in Rockport Tx, Maybe February in Corpus Christi area then back home to Arkansas and camping around our lakes and state parks a couple of months. Then going west to Moab Ut area for all the National parks around there.Then most of June in Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Glacier NP and S Dakota, then to Amish family rv in Indiana for more upgrades and any warranty stuff late July, then Northern Peninsula of Michigan and into Canada if it's open. Down the east coast and outer banks then Great Smokey mtns NP. Meet up with our family on Dauphin Island Al in September then home for a while and plan the next round. Retirement is great!

We went camping locally the most we have ever done. I'm hoping 2021 is better, but we are looking forward to getting out as much as we can. Depending on the 49th parallel situation will determine if we look at booking anything south for a trip or two.

Plans for 2021

We will be picking up our ordered Tandara 386MB-OK from Ohio in March or April, driving back home to Colorado. We hope to get some weekend trips in with our granddaughter (within Colorado), and then a couple of longer trips during the fall/winter, as we are retiring the end of August!

Stay safe and enjoy the travel!

Sounds wonderful! My DH and I hope to do that someday. Praying for your sister.

Good chance we might run into you. Almost 99.95% of our camping is in WI, and state campgrounds.

We made reservations a year in advance for my "retirement breakout trip" to the Yellowstone/Teton area. Taking a lazy route from Texas to Red Lodge and then back down through eastern Utah.

We did our best to confine during 2020, but I ain't takin it no more.

Our plans will depend on the local county officials and whether or not they allow our CG to be open.

Last year we weren't able to go until late May.
