We will be here in Florida for another month but it's time to start thinking about where to go next. We've decided to start working our way west in order to be back in the Northwest for summer.
Rob wants to have the RV back in Oregon where we purchased it to have any remaining warranty work done. We have a couple of things on our list already.
We love the weather and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest in the late summer so we want to enjoy that. We'll also want to head over to Montana and Wyoming for some mountain views and fly fishing.
We miss and want to spend time with my family who live in Washington.
We are planning on spending the Holidays at home this year.
AND we are expecting a new grandchild in October. My daughter Christina and her husband Ryan are expecting their second little one and I wouldn't miss it for anything.
There are other things like medical visits and dental care that we need to take care of too.
But all of that is a long way off and we have to start thinking about where our travels will take us next. We have decided to travel along the Gulf for the first leg of our journey west. The west coast of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and on into Texas.
After the gulf we'll head Northwest into New Mexico perhaps. Rob and I have always wanted to go to New Mexico. One day we hope to attend the Taos hot air balloon rally but it probably won't be this year.
One of the things we are really interested in is boondocking. Boondocking is camping without hookups. Not Walmart parking lot type camping but wilderness camping. When we get back toward the Central and Western US there are a lot of places we can try our hand at boondocking. I'm sure there will be lengthy posts about learning the ins and outs of boondocking in our future.
Care to share your ideas about great places to visit and stay along the gulf coast?
