    Road trip -- a simple living style vacation

    Another update...

    As you all know, I usually like to fly out to far flung places like South America or Eastern Europe for my vacations.

    But with COVID, I could not do that this year. So I took a simple road trip with a ladyfriend and our dogs (Harlan and Stella).

    We went to a variety of places such as Sioux Falls, Mt. Rushmore, Devil's Tower, and the Fiield of Dreams house! We stayed in Air BnBs and avoided restaurants, just eating from a cooler full of healthy foods.

    I thought you traveled to the Ukraine, and wondered how you pulled that off.

    We did did the same trip in our camper during all of June and part of July this year. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devils Tower, Yellowstone, Little Big Horn, Teddy Roosevelt National Park, Custer State Park, Badlands, etc. Had a great time!

    Now I have a sudden craving to go pile up dirt, in the living room.

    That's our kind of vacation, too. OK, I like flying or sailing to some international destination but it's going to be a looooong time until that happens again. In the meantime, fill the car with fuel, point it in one direction, and go. Someday that will be as easy as it once was.

    We like road trips and since being retired have gone for a month at a time. We love the national parks except for them not being very dog friendly.

    We have a brief window where itís pretty safe to see our grandkids - the boys are home schooled for now and Iím still off work but no longer contagious. So weíve been to Grand Canyon village twice in the last month. Our son works there, and we stay in his camper which is parked by his house. Iím tempted to retire, sell everything, and be a full time grandma. Itís so peaceful up there ...

    Sounds great! I need to at least get out camping for a weekend before the cold weather really hits... sigh.
