Doug; We're going to a car show in Bennington Vermont. Taking our '76 Ford F150 4 wheel drive pickup to pull our 1946 Modernistic teardrop camper. I'll throw in some vintage camping equipment and two old BSA bicycles and we'll be talking to spectators nonstop all weekend. The teardrop is the big attraction, pickup so-so, although it is a rustfree one from Arizona, which is a big deal in this part of the country. The teardrop gets used regularly for camping, can be pulled with anything as it's only 650 lb., the truck gets very little use. Bob

1 Trip ... to Alaska.
Left home in NY on June 19, returned home September 11.
First stop Colorado to visit family and friends ... straight north to Canadian Rockies for some hiking ... picked up Alcan Hwy in Dawson Creek ... first stop in Alaska was Haines ... went as far north as mile 260 on Dalton Hwy ... visited 6 National Parks ... exited Alaska via Top of World Hwy to Dawson City ... south on Cassiar Hwy with stops in Atlin and Stewart/Hyder ... detour to Couer l'Alene, Idaho (very nice, will revisit) ... back thru Colorado for another family stop .... then Home! .... 13,800 miles ... no major problems (small leaks due to loose rivets from bumpy roads) ... lots of gorgeous scenery and wildlife sightings ... some very nice campsites ... 0 WalMart nights... we call it our North American Economic Stimulus Spending RoadTrip (it was worth it :-) ... trip of a lifetime ... now Casita gets put away for winter.

A two week trip through the southwest to Mesa Verde, 3500 miles ,seven states and seven nat'l parks or monuments. Four extended weekends and at least one more in October. Add a week camping on the Harley and a 4 day canoe in camptrip I'd say we did good for folks who still have to work for a living. As many others have said-can't wait till every day is like saturday.
