As long as the DW sits in the copiplots seat, whereever the roads leads us. Several national parks in the west come to mind. I camped in California when I was a teenager but the DW hasn't. When we retire that will be number one on our list. A cross country trip lasting serveral months. Since we are both techers we make good use of the summer months. Last summer we took a 7 week trip and camped in 7 states. It was a blast!

Our list has shortened over the last few years. We have traveled a great deal and pushed forward with the idea that price increases could limit our ability.I am glad we have done this. On our list is AK and the canadian Rockies. Like many have stated our bucket list is a target rather than a pre-planned destination so when we get close we decide, It is much easier that way. The most I ever pre arranged was 5 days in a Yellowstone campsite. Maybe a trip around the ontario side of Lk. Huron and up towards Thunder Bay.Not all that far for us but have never done that.My business and stick and brick are for sale so maybe soon we can mosy around some more.

A big one for me is all 7 continents. I have 5 out of 7 now

South America and Antartica are the last 2. And probably will be the same trip as last I checked there aren't any direct flights Vancouver -> Antartica

I love travelling in our MH but I also love going somewhere really far away by plane and visiting new cultures. As beautiful as our part is, there's plenty to see outside it too.

You moistened my eyes some this morning. A few years ago I heard the ā€œCā€ word (so far so good. ) Maybe I should look at our budget again and see what we can swing.

All the best to you.

We sold our sailboat last summer. We had sailed the Atlantic from Maine to the far southern Bahamas while living aboard for almost 8 years. It was a big item on our bucket list and we loved it!

The next item on our list to tour the US National Parks, so we bought a 2004 Tiffin Phaeton. We plan to head out in the spring and begin our next great adventure.

Trip planning is giving us a bit of trouble! Not quite sure how to organize it.


Preparing and provisioning an RV is much different than a sailboat.
There is a grocery store every 30 minutes, a CW every couple of hours, and a harbor (Campground) every 30 minutes, a mechanic always nearby, roadside assistance always nearby............winging it is very easy! no anchor watch...........my wheels have never pulled in a storm.........

visitor center at most state lines......we pull in, load up with info, spend the next few days deciding where to go.....

There are some wonderful expedition travel companies that have small ice-hardened ships going to Antarctica. We went in 1990 and it was the trip of a lifetime. Spent time in Chile on the way and then afterward had several days in Rio de Janeiro. (That was a major culture shock juxtaposition...) We were in the Antarctic Peninsula for ten days, seeing amazing wildlife and some people we later met in Maine who had sailed there!!

My wife and I are still very much a part of the working class at this time but we have been very fortunate and have been able to see most of the western United States and part of British Columbia and Alberta in our 16 years of RVing. We have been able to off-road in some of the most beautiful places in the country in our Jeeps and enjoy our sandrail and quads in many of the western sand dunes. We have been able to do this all the while enjoying our various RVs and have been able to expose our son to things that most people with never see.

Although there are many things I would still like to be able to do and see there are a couple at the top of my list but they will have to wait about another 15 years until the wife and I are retired.

I would like to be able to take three or four months (maybe more) and go to Alaska with the coach and another trip to the eastern part of the country and do a Civil War roadtrip.

Until then we are going to enjoy as much as we can with short trips and look forward to our retirement for the longer ones.

Mike.

My bucket list is to visit places I haven't been to yet. So, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Greenfield Village, Saskatchtewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia are the places I happen to want to go to next.
