(I’m trying something new. Well, everything we are doing with the blog is new, so newness is relative here.) We created a map to show some of the places we may visit on our Tramper Voyage. We have a nice paper map, with many little push pins.
It works well at home but this is a blog, so I used Google Maps to help create this lovely USA & Canada map. It might even be somewhat interactive. You know, with the little thingies that let you zoom and move the map.
It’s really not likely that we’ll be able to go to even half of these wonderful places in 6-12 months at our planned slow pace. The map is a good prompter for what we want to do and see. Structure, too, is good. The “What by when?” question is easier to answer. Although we do already have the answers: What – have fun, be very active, meet nice people, see beautiful things, appreciate life while not on the clock. When – from the day we leave until the money runs out!
Cool…I like maps.
The appreciation part will astound you in many ways. Retirement opened my eyes up to many, many beautiful things I seldom took the time to notice. Soak it all up!
The most important thing is that you are enjoying being together and exploring and sharing things together.
Thanks, friends! You are so right, Linda. We are looking forward to spending the time together.
You have marked 37 points to visit by my count. If you allow one week for each point, which includes the travel between points, you would need more than 8 months to complete all of your points of interest! (…and I am sure you will find some new stops to occupy your time along the way as well)
Would suggest throwing a dart at the map as your plan needs a point of guidance. Let me know if you need any household concern covered.
Ned, thanks, we thought of you that way. This really is a nice village we have here in Towson…its kinda hard to leave.
Hi David and Jane! Jason and I are so excited to follow your trip via the blog! We are flattered to see our names pinned on your map! We would LOVE to have you visit us!!! –Lauren and Jason
If you do get down to NOLA, you’re totally welcome to stop by Tuscaloosa on your way!
Love to Emma! I hope we make it there. It’d be good to see you. We’ll keep you posted if we’re close
I’m in Wilmington, NC now, as you know.
Please let me know if you come to NC, and if so, how close to the coast (Wilmington).
Hi Marshall! So good to hear from you! We are planning to pass through NC. Hope to see you.
