I do want to hit up as much as I can, as I'm probably not going to have time to take a month or so off for travel for at least a few years (if not longer).

I'm going to southwestern Colorado in February. Sadly don't have the time to drive the whole way. Flying from O'Hare, so that will probably be my first look at the fully completed I-39/90 in southern WI. I always look forward to driving I-90 between South Beloit and Chicago. Once in Colorado, I'll drive the Million Dollar Highway for the first time.

I'll be bouncing around WI quite a bit, as usual.

Where are you flying to?

The last week of February is when I'd be in the area if I do end up going with my brother to the Grand Canyon while he hikes it, but I don't know that I'd be up to drive US 550 in February. I can't imagine that road being fun to drive at all if it's snowing.

Not a road trip, but I'm flying to LAX in January, and spending a week in the area, mostly visiting theme parks. I doubt we'll venture outside of LA and Orange counties though. Maybe Riverside or San Bernardino but we don't have concrete plans there.

In July, I believe we'll be flying to Norfolk, VA, visiting family there, visiting the Virginia theme parks (BGW and KD), then driving up to Hershey, PA to see a show there and visit Hersheypark. After that, we may visit Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ, and possibly the American Dream mall. Haven't decided yet which airport we'll be flying back from, or which day. JFK has some direct flights to BOI, but depends on the day we want to leave. Otherwise Newark would probably be more convenient (just would not be a direct flight). Holding off on booking the flights for this trip because I believe they'll get cheaper in a couple months, they're a bit higher than normal right now. I'm tracking them on Google Flights.

Nothing else is fully planned yet, though we'll probably do a shorter trip sometime in spring (Mar-May). Visiting family in Oregon is always an option, as is a trip to Salt Lake City. Could pop down to NorCal too maybe (by car or plane).

There's a band my wife wants to see live, and their US tour is in early fall, so we'll probably try to hit them up in Denver (that would be a fun road trip, I've never been to CO before), Tacoma (closest to Boise), Oakland, Vegas, or LA. Tickets are all sold out lol so we'd need to get them second hand.

If Portland Retro Gaming Expo happens next year (cancelled the last 2 for Covid), I definitely want to attend again. That's usually in fall. We usually drive but one time we flew because we had just driven to Portland the weekend prior to the expo for a funeral, and didn't want to make that round trip 2 weeks in a row (that was a good call).

Belated congratulations, Jayhawk!  :)

I donít have any children, but my younger brother has two sons, an 8 and a 5 year old.  So I am a proud uncle.  They are my motherís only grandchildren since my late sister didnít have any kids either.

I am trying to persuade my mother, my younger brother, his current wife (not my nephewsí mother, thatís his ex-wife), and my nephews to make a week long trip to Orlando all at my expense except for a timeshare week my mother has banked.  My nephews have never been to Florida, and I would like for them to go to Walt Disney World, Islands of Adventure, and Sea World.
