    When I Retire...

    I want to travel the roads less traveled when I retire. I want to go alone or with a special friend.  I'll stay off the interstate highways.  No where in particular to go but only guided by maybe seeing a friend or visiting a spot I haven't visited before.  I want no timeline...

    Where To Go, What To See?

    I am hoping to make a trip across the USA at some point in the future.  Who can recommend a route, say what's worth seeing en-route and advise on what's needed when setting out on a road trip.  Yes I know I will need a vehicle!

    "Get Your Kicks, On Route 66"

    From an early age, I have had the idea that I would like to drive or ride across America.  Films like; Electraglide in Blue, Easy Rider and the documentaries such as about Route 66, the old roads and the new ones, have whetted my appetite. In my twenties I had a very good...

    I'd like to rent an RV and spend a long time, may be a year, touring the the US  and seeing what there is to see. I'm particularly drawn to the islands on the East Coast, New Mexico and the Pacific North West.

    I Have Before

      I loved my last trip across country.  I was young then, too young to drive.  I think the adult version of the trip might be a little more fun. I'd love to rent an RV and take some friends with me and explore aimlessly for a month or two :-)
