Heading back to sunny San Diego for the second time in five months the last week of March.

Starting to think about moving there. Real estate is pricey, but it probably is worth it.

Definitely spending another day in La Jolla and attending the Padres's Opening Day.

weather was great the whole time! NYAH NYAH!!!


if anyone travels even once every other year, INVEST IN SPINNER LUGGAGE. It is truly a game-changer. So so so so much easier, especially if doing carry-on and dragging it through airports.

Leaning more and more doing something probably ill-advised this Spring/Summer. Instead of finding employment right after my surgery I'm thinking of knocking places off my bucket list via RV. What must-see places am I missing on the list below?

List as of now:
Natchez Trace from Nashville to Natchez
Carlsbad Caverns
Petrified Forest
Four Corners
Grand Canyon
Sequoia
Yosemite
City of Rocks
Yellowstone
Mt. Rushmore

You could probably easily do a trip of Rushmore, Badlands, Yellowstone, and Tetons.

Arches is a great one. Definitely going on the list.

Arches is incredible. Wish I had more time there. We spent more time in Canyonlands and regret not doing more in Arches. The cool thing is they're right next to each other. In the next few years I could see myself splitting 4 or 5 days between both. For photography and color wise you probably won't find anything that would top Arches. Would definitely recommend camping with the RV in the National Parks. The summer gets a lot of Europeans and Asians. Met a ton of incredibly nice people from overseas. The Americans, not so nice. We ate some mushrooms one night in Rocky Mountain NP with a group of Germans and Koreans. No one spoke English. Good times.

Planning on a bit nice that that. Think I'm going with a trailer.

If I continue on to Redwood, Crater Lake and Mr. Rainier before Yellowstone I might be able to check off the rest of the continental 48.

The weather is recorded. Guy wearing a 25 year old suit saying: Sunny and 74 today.

Great beer scene, but the cost of living is so spendy with the bonus of LA like traffic. I do love to visit.

Tetons is a buy one/get one with Yellowstone (make the time). The drive between Yellowstone and Rushmore absolutely sucks, even if you stop in Gillette at the Devils Tower. Just absolutely nothing. If you take the scenic route the horrors of nothing are broken up by a really scary, break melting drive through the mountains (kissed the ground in Tensleep heading east to west)

I also recommend Arches, Yosemite and the Tetons. Havasu Creek in the Grand Canyon is one of my favorite places but it is a day's hike to get there so probably out of scope for this venture.

Nah. Grand canyon is one of those have to see it to believe it places. It's so big. So awe inspiring.

The other two are great, but GC is surreal.

I'm thinking 6 to 8 weeks. There's actually something of a logical route if you map the stops. It's up to around 8,000 miles just travelling. Each stop is within about a day's drive.
