Where to go this summer?? Here are the current plans.

We left Umatilla, FL about a month ago and visited friends and family as we made our way to Oklahoma City, OK where we visited our son and family (and the new grandchild!). Now, we are starting to wonder where we should go for the rest of the summer (ah, the flexibility of fulltimer RV travel!). We do not make concrete plans very often, but rather just mosey around as we want.

Since fuel prices seem to be dropping, we have expanded our travel plan to this  current general plan:

We are thinking that we will head towards Death Valley after leaving Oklahoma and probably touch the Grand Canyon which we love. Next, our stops would generally include:

  • Yosemite National Park
  • Eureka, CA and the Giant Redwoods
  • Coos Bay, Or and the Pacific coast road
  • Port Townsend, WA with a side trip to Victoria, CA
  • Banff, Alberta
  • The International Peace Gardens in Canada/North Dakota
  • Head back to Umatilla, FL for the winter. 
We expect the run to take about 5 months total since we do not travel very far on any given day and like to explore each area, so this will require about 1,500 miles a month or about 50 miles a day on average. Usually, we will run 100 to 150 miles and stay a couple days. Of course, we will seek out out of the way spots as we go. 

Naturally, this is all subject to change, but we will try to keep the general travels posted as we go.
