I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

Our World–Planning a road trip

I love making a plan. Just not Too far in advance. Typically I can’t wrap my brain around more than about six months at a time.
01 GRCA view from Transept trail
I’m planning a road trip after my season is over mid-October at Grand Canyon. There are some places I want to revisit and lots of new landscapes to explore.

Plus, I’d really like to meet new people along the way also. And I’m positive I’ll cross paths with many.

However, I’m also hoping to meet up with fellow bloggers and some of you may be close enough to my path of adventure to make that possible.
So here’s an informal route and I’m Certainly open to recommendations. Really hope we can cross trails along the way.

Sounds like a great plan to me!! I can't imagine NOT running into old friends and meeting new ones along that route!!

Diane said...

What a great idea. We can enjoy all your photos of places certainly new to me, and you will get to meet all the bloggers along the way. Diane

All good places to visit, and I liked Kodachrome Park near Bryce. What's your timeline for these places. I'm leaving Illinois the 1st week of November, heading to Texas. I will stay in Texas at least through the end of December and then head through NM and to Arizona. I want to stop at the LazyDays RV dealer in Tuscon for awhile and then I don't know where I'm heading after that.

Gaelyn said...

Teri, the timeline is as long as it takes. Then I'll settle in to my winter home in Yarnell, Arizona for at least a little while. Let me know when you get to AZ, there's space for your rig in my yard.

Sounds like a great trip and wonderful places to visit, Gaelyn! Wish I could go too!

Teri said...

Thanks, Gaelyn. I will do that.

go to the end of your driveway and make a east for about 2,000 miles and you will practically be in my backyard =o)

Now that is a lovely route you're planning!

Wow, that is a heck of a road trip you are planning.

Make sure all your camera gear is working.

I'm just a tad jealous that you will soon be traveling again! You will be visiting some great places! And even though I've seen some of them already I'd LOVE to visit them again.

Luckily for us, I'm sure you'll take tons of great photos.

What a great blog! Just discovered it today, so guess I'm your newest follower! Looking forward to future posts.

A great plan Gaelyn but I don't see the Heyson trail that goes from Cape Jervis to Blinman in the North Flinders Ranges so you won't be sharing a leg of your walking tour with me. I am so disappointed.

It looks like a mighty project and I wish you all the luck in Our World!

Roadtrips are always a good idea. I hope you get to meet a couple of your "followers" and fellow bloggers.

Pat said...

I still hope to get your way one day, but probably not this October. Your plan looks good....I'll be following.
