Road Trip 2011/12...Moonwalkers vs Mammoths
After retiring from the Environmental Health field in 2002, I spent the next 5+ years driving the highways of the country, delivering RV Motorhomes....if you count my Air Force years, I have seen 48 of the 57(right Obama?) States. The only 2 I have not at least stepped foot or landed in are South Dakota and Montana. Alaska I have to admit was only for a 15 minute stop over in my Sky Cop days. Anyway, we have decided to take off for at least 2 weeks in late July through mid August of the next 2 summers to "see the USA". The first year we will head west, then in 2012, we plan on going south then up the east coast towards New England, and back across the eastern Great Lakes area.
Although I saw much in my RV Driving, I really never got to stick around places for very long...time taken was money lost....I did hang out in Las Vegas on occasion, but for the most part, a few hours spent at any one location was not in the cards. So next year, we will visit her folks in Wisconsin for a day or 2, then on to South Dakota, Deadwood, and Mt Rushmore, then head west through Montana, Idaho, and south to Vegas, the Grand Canyon, back to Colorado and the Rockies, Dodge City, and back east towards home....2 weeks to 17 days should do it. Of course it all depends on cash, time, and health....and if the Kenyan Bastard in the White House hasn't locked down the country.
More on the trip(s) as I begin to see the plans come to clearer....
Photos-The Wall Cloud from last night storms moves through Celina(looking north from our porch), The First of the "Moonwalker" Blooms...and Mount Rushmore, is one of the early stops planned for our 2011 Road trip through the west....The Marxist Sanctuaries of California, Washington, and Oregon, are not on the vacation agenda, but most of the other states west of Ohio are.
