I’ve been all over these States of America but haven’t been on a trip in a while. I’m itchin’ to get on the road again.
There are so many places I would love to visit again: Durango/Silverton, CO., The Winchester Mansion, Disneyland, Grand Canyon, and Mt. Rushmore. The list goes on and on.
Then I think of all the many places that are still on my bucket list: Leavenworth, WA, Graceland, Newport, RI, Nantucket, and the Holocaust Memorial in DC which wasn’t there yet when I went. Again, the list is endless.
And then there are all the people I need to visit: sister in Nevada, aunt in Ca, nephew in Ohio, friends in Oregon. This list goes on for quite a ways as well!
I’m always amazed at people’s responses when I tell stories of past trips I’ve taken. I’m usually very excited because I love everything about travel. I like the change of scenery, visiting with people I haven’t seen in a while, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures. I guess there are some people who are happy to stay at home. Traveling is too cumbersome and tiring for them. They would love to visit loved ones or see the Grand Canyon, but there’s too many inconveniences. I never considered RVing instead of driving a car to a hotel because I like hotels and I know so many people that have a house to stay at along the way, but I can relate. Traveling can stress you out. That’s why they say that you don’t really know someone until you’ve traveled with them.
I’m thinking an RV is the way to go. I’ve entertained the idea for when I retire but with an RV, one could over pack. One wouldn’t have to fit everything into a suitcase. No airport stress. No hotel disappointments. With today’s advancements, it’s easier than ever to operate and tow the darn things! Electronic hitches, light-weight 5-wheel hitches, and auto leveling makes RVing doable for a weakling like me.
Hey! Maybe I’m on to something! The endearing term “Snowbird” is sounding very appealing! Come to think of it, here in the Northwest, one does not have to travel far to visit gorgeous and historical places. This entertains the idea of buying an RV before retiring! Hmmm…. I might be on to something here.
Now I just have to convince the one who wears the pants in the family.
