Almost Retired

Recommended Posts

Just joined FMCA and thought I'd say "Howdy." Been camping awhile ~~ late '70s tents and truck campers, then a small pop-up ~~ 90's 19 1/2' ClassC ~ now 27' ClassA -2 slides. Some RV travelling (WesternStates) ~~ mostly camping Yosemite/Sequoia/KingsCyn etc., etc.

Only 24 more working days and Maddog will be retired and we will be starting (in May) our first long(2-3mo) trip. CA Gold country ~ Craters of the Moon(ID) ~~ Glacier ~~ Yellowstone ~~ Cody ~~ Devil'sTower ~~ Rushmore/CrazyHorse ~~ Pike'sPeak ~~ Gunnison etc.etc. Will be spending as much time in each area as needed. Then West on Hwy 70 to 15 then Hyw 50 to 395 to 120 finishing Yosemite. Maybe Utah on way home depending onna bunch of things. Also stuff below Hwy70 been recently will go another trip.

Welcome Pam and Kate!

Reading your itinerary for the summer looks a lot like the kind of places we love to travel and see. I'd suggest a couple of other areas that might be of interest. From the gold hills, you may want to go to Lassen National Park where you can climb to the summit of the last volcano in the 48 states to erupt before Mt. St. Helens. It's about a 2 hour walk up and worth the climb. After the climb you can visit the gift shop and buy an "I climbed the volcano" T-shirt or bumper sticker. If Craters of the Moon interests you then you might be interested in Lava Beds National Monument in NE California. There are lots of lava tubes to be explored there just as in Craters of the Moon. We also enjoyed the John Day Fossil Beds in eastern Oregon. Then from there you aren't too far from Craters of the Moon.

Enjoy your travels!

Have been to most of those places and will be heading out to Alamagordo, Santa Fe, Denver, couple of months in Dillon Mt., fishing, than on to Ore and a good seafood dinner. Nothing like good health, retirement, and travel. Have lots of fun, and welcome to our world.

Thanks All for the welcome.

TBUTLER, Debating doing Lassen & LavaBeds this trip OR on a more "Norther" trip Oregon & Washington later on down the road. Rig too small for REALLY long trips so will try for several through out the year/years as seasons allow. Been planning the Glacier/MtRushmore trip for years ~~ so kinda wanted to do it first. Got a SouthWest trip in the works for Fall. Some repeats ~~ Some new.
