Gary and I hope to hit the road again. Someday.
We dream of taking another RV road trip. Someday.
When we do…
it will be just the two of us.
It will be just the two of us because this fall (2017) we officially become empty-nesters.
Belle will be entering her junior year at college and Buddy will be starting his first year at college.
In 2016, Gary committed to a two-year commitment at his current place of employment.
This July he’ll have one more year to go.
After July of 2018, we hope to hit the road again.
And as for me, I’ve officially retired as a homeschool mom.
However, I haven’t left the homeschool arena.
I’m working on helping other moms homeschool successfully.
When we do get back on the road, I want to be ready.
During our family’s year-long travel adventure across the USA,
I spent a lot of time researching places to go and sites to see in each state.
To save time on our next road trip adventure, I’ve decided to research places to go and sites to see before we leave home.
My plan is to start a new series next Monday. This series will be “a Travel Bucket List across the USA.”
My goal is to research a state a week. Then compile my findings into a post for this blog.
For this series,
I’ll be compiling lists like “the 6 top-rated tourist attractions”, “the top 9 hidden gems”, “the top 10 great places”, “the top 20 things to do”, “the 30 must-see places”, and “the like” in each state.
And I’ll be sharing my findings here, so Gary and I will be prepared when we do hit the road. Someday.
Since our family quickly learned that we couldn’t go everywhere and see everything even on a year-long trip, I used categories to help us decide where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. For this series, I’ll be using the following categories to organize each state’s must-see places to go and sites to see:
- For nature-lovers
- For a scenic drive or a roadside attraction
- For history-buffs
- For city-slickers
- For planes, trains, and automobile aficionados
- For the uniqueness of a place
I’ll also use asterisks to show how many times a particular place or specific site was mentioned in the resources I used.
My hope is that this series not only helps saves us time but you too. Be sure to bookmark your favorite destinations. Then when you go to these places someday, you’ll know where to go and what to see. Happy Travels!
