    . . . where did your travels take you - and will take you - for 2015? Throw in pleasure trips (Vegas and elsewhere), business trips and mini-weekend getaways.

    I'll list mine:

    February - Vegas
    June - Vegas
    October - RCI Southern Caribbean Cruise
    November - Vegas

    Your turn!

    2014 was pretty good, with the usual kinds of stuff below plus Canada twice, Mexico, Hawaii twice. 2015 was an off year for me:

    Vegas -- 2
    San Diego area -- 3
    Palm Springs area -- 4
    Scottsdale -- 1
    Bandon/Walla Walla/Brewster/Pullman/Spokane/Coeur D'Alene/Bend during an awesome September road trip
    Cambria/San Simeon -- 2
    Sacramento
    Bay Area -- 3
    And four times this year friends came here for extended weekends of wine and food and golf -- that's a staycation that counts!
    Del Mar, Indian Wells/La Quinta and Borrego Springs coming up in December

    In 2016 Maui and Lanai are on the books, then a Big Island/Kauai trip. The fall trip will be either New Zealand or two weeks in Burgundy or Tuscany (we're 'rastlin' about that one). The guys' annual golf junket is returning to Bend. Then the usual regional stuff.

    Not nearly as much travel since we have our daughter. Used to go to Hawaii every other summer (north shore of Kauai is our favorite) and San Francisco every January, but now it's lots of weekends and one week a year in CA Central Coast - Cambria/Morro Bay/Paso. (btw Ken, I love Hunter Ranch and walking Morro Bay at twilight).
    This year had a weekend in Pasadena, two nights in Vegas in October, maybe up to Sequoia National Park this weekend, Disneyland in December, and an Ensenada cruise in January.

    Hunter's a fun track and that back nine at Morro doesn't exactly suck, and the setting ... I still get a discount at Hunter with my La Purisima membership but don't get to Paso that often unless just driving through; I guess I play it once a year. I mostly head a shorter distance south to play Sandpiper. Are you Taco Temple fans in Morro? Love that spot.

    Hard to beat the top of Kauai, for sure!!

    2015 has been my most challenging year, yet (and hopefully, ever). Compared to past years I've traveled very little, I've missed out on a lot, but I'm grateful for the trips I did make:

    Xpu-ha, Mexico
    San Francisco
    Denver
    Austin
    San Diego
    Los Angeles, twice
    And two Las Vegas staycations

    I'm very much looking forward to 2016.

    Yeah, Morro Bay is short and the greens are screwy, but at twilight at the times I've played, the weather has been perfect, the course is practically empty, and the sunsets over the water have been unreal. Anyway, I think there is another thread for golf out there somewhere :D

    My wife's family has a house in Cambria, so we get over there about every other month or so and make sure to hit Morro Bay and the San Simeon beach across from Hearst Castle. In Morro Bay, we tend to stay on the waterfront so it's usually either Hofbrau for roast beef sandwiches or Giovanni's for fish and chips. I have been to Taco Temple once, and liked it. I remember our beef burrito was massive. I would like to go back and get seafood next time.
