Terri's plan to meet me in the PNW after my August Bandon/Bend golf soiree has gone by the work wayside, so we're starting to think of options for mid Sept through early Oct. Victoria might still win out, but part of the appeal of BC was me being rather close already with vehicle. I think the Sierras are out since we've done a few Mammoth/Yosemite/Tahoe trips the past couple years. Perhaps not the islands since we've been there quite often. Maybe fly to Denver and head into the Rockies. Hmmm, Boston? We're tired of Mexico. I'm guessing 10 days or so. We once did New Zealand with a 10-day (on the ground) window but really don't see a long plane ride for such a short trip, so no south o' France or similar until next year's big trip. Maybe the Carib. And she loved what she saw in the pics of my Alberta trip last week. Time to get out the maps. I LOVE trip planning.
