Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 31 Sunny High 64) 

During the cold spell we recently had with ice Bob had some time to work on our 2018 plans. Here is the back window after the overnight ice.

We weren't certain of our departure date so decided to go to Denver for Bob's Beryllium testing in the spring and then head to the Upper Peninsula for the summer. By doing this we can avoid tornado alley states of Oklahoma-Nebraska-Kansas-Iowa in the spring and visit them in the fall. We have a couple of weeks at The Soo (Sault Ste. Marie) and over a month in Houghton. Then it's down to Iowa/Nebraska/Missouri for family and friends before we head back to Kerrville. Here is a map of our 'planned' 2018 travels.

After last summer being so hot for our travels we are looking forward to the cooler temperatures, and the pasties of course, in the Upper Peninsula. 

Bob is calling this year the 'Redemption Tour' because he can redeem himself for forgetting to buy some regional favorites before leaving an area and then enjoying them down the road, or not enjoying them since he forgot them 😀

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. I'm making plans and reservations for the 2018 travel season too. Our loop will be thru Oregon and Washington this year with a fall "come back either into California Red woods, or Colorado Aspens.

    Happy Trails!

  2. I, too, have been plotting our travels. After spending two months letting jim fish in Montana we are headed to Virginia. Traveling east the month of September and spending October in VA. Then back to AZ sometime in November. Went to Sal's yesterday. Just wait til you see my pictures of the place.

  3. HAHAHA....Good title, Bob. You do have a list of everything you need to buy, right?
    We love the The Soo area. We might go back this summer.

  4. Wow, that is great getting your summer planning complete. We enjoyed the Soo area and Houghton, especially since you introduce us to parties. We had talked about going back to that area this summer but not sure when we can leave Florida, and how long we can get away. Doctor's just don't understand, we don't want to be in central Florida in the summer.
