"A Little Travelin' Music, Ray"

As Jackie Gleason used to say on his television day, back in the day of 7 channel television.

One of the most enjoyable of many enjoyable aspects of being with Blogger Girl is sharing with her some of the places that I have visited and enjoyed in my past. These have included the North Island of New Zealand, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Maui and Mt Haleakala, the enchanting island of Bermuda and the mystical pyramid complex at Xuantanich in Belize.

She has shared her fun places with me as well, like West Texas, New Mexico, San Antonio, Austin, Lukenbach, TEXAS, and New Orleans, as well as the gorgeous barrier islands in the Gulf, from Dauphin to Deer Island.

One of the places I very much want to go with her is Banff, but I cleverly forgot my passport this trip, so instead we are going to see a little more of the US together. Next week we hope to visit the Grand Canyon, Sequoia and Yosemite in a car trip beginning in Flagstaff and ending in Sacramento. We are also looking forward to meeting an old journal space friend that we have never seen, and another that we HAVE seen, several times, several places.

I lived in California for almost two years, but have not returned, for more than a day or so, in almost fifty years. I am hoping we can manage to visit San Simeon, Monterey, Carmel and San Francisco along the way.

Yea! Road trip! Y'all have fun. And do take your lady to Banff. As you know it is absolutely beautiful there. ;)

Road trips are SO different in the internet age. Dunno better, but sure different. Her new 'tablet' has more "stuff" in it than I could ever have imagined.

True honey, especially about the tablet. It's a pretty amazing thing!

I am truly looking forward to the trip.

It will be great. Don't worry about places you can't include, plenty of good places will be visited no matter what.
The access to maps and info makes the going much better, and even helps you find out of the way stuff a normal map misses.
