Let me start off by saying we moved today. Since we will be in San Antonio for a couple more years, we now have a permanent site at our RV park. In the two years we've lived here this is our 7th site in the park. It's hard to move into a long-term site here, but now we have one. The only time we'll need to move is when we go on one of our get-aways.
Speaking of which, I will be flying to Portland, Oregon on Saturday to spend 1-1/2 weeks with family and friends. Bob will be staying in San Antonio to work and hold down the fort. I plan to stay with mom, see my son, Mike; my brother and his wife, Gina; and my sister, Jan, along with numerous friends.
Usually we plan a trip to the coast and we'll do some walking and hiking. We may be heading to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington on Memorial Day weekend to see my brother at his lake property there. (We'll be checking the weather before we go. If it's going to be miserably rainy, we may skip the 3-1/2 hours of driving each way.)
My sister is planning a pinochle party for May 31. That's always a blast. Usually there are three tables and a potluck. We play for close to four hours.
I return to San Antonio on June 4, am home for ten days, then my friend Susan and I will start our driving trip to Oregon for the Columbia Gorge Biennial Classic Volksmarch Weekend. Along the way there and back, we will be walking state capitols (Phoenix, AZ; Carson City, NV; Sacramento, CA; Salem, OR; Boise, ID; Salt Lake City, UT; and Santa Fe, NM) and seeing caves, national parks and national monuments. Really looking forward to a road trip!!
Again, Bob will be working and holding down the fort here in San Antonio. Thank you, honey, for taking care of the home front. I appreciate you so much!
September 22, Bob and I leave on a 6-7 week road trip. Destination: Wisconsin and Michigan. We will head up through Wisconsin to see the area where his relatives lived many years ago, continue up through Iron River and Marquette, Michigan, to see the towns where our fathers grew up, spend a couple of weeks in the upper peninsula for fall colors and waterfall hikes, then drop down to the Chelsea/Ann Arbor area where we will spend a week meeting my aunts, uncles, and cousins whom I haven't seen since I was a child.
In 2014, we are be making up for our lack of travel in 2013. Woo hoo!
Travel Bug blissing out.
