1. Sometimes not planning is a good alternative. I took a trip a few years back, knowing my first destination was Maryland and my second was northern Minnesota. Other than finding my first hotel in SLC and finding my way out of a closed Forest Service Road in Oregon, I used only paper maps. No GPS.
    Grand Canyon is great. North Rim more rustic and less touristy, but also closed in winter. Yellowstone was great too, albeit too touristy (traffic) in the late summer.
    PS – you give away your background referring to it as “pop.” 😁

    • Thanks for your support and ideas! I love hearing about other adventures and that there are more of us out there. As far as being locked in the forest road, that is one thing I’m always concerned about (but honestly that all depending on the lock they use). Thanks for the tip about the Grand Canyon, I plan on looking that up today!

      Ha, I didn’t realize that I used pop. But your good at catching those things!

      Thanks for the comment!

    So proud of you! The first step is the hardest, but once that’s done … The rest just falls into place! I can not wait to hear all about the amazing adventures and the exciting things you have the opportunity to experience!!
    Plus! It’s so cool to do it alone. You get to decide what you want to do, when you want to do it. It’s all about you and it’s absolutely freeing.

    • Thanks! I’m excited and just want to leave right now 🙂 It will be cool to not really have a plan and only a guideline. If something looks exciting or fun, I will go for it. Also, I can’t wait to hear about your last adventure!
