I have two trips planned for this summer.

1) Leave Mpls to go explore the Black hills area(Custer St. Park) Then head up to WY to see Devils Tower, then home to Mpls. 10 day trip

2) Long weekend (4 days) up at MN north shore north of Duluth.

3) Long weekend (4 days) in Central MN at Mille Lacs Lake.

Can't stray too far with a 2 year old.

That's what I'm doing so far. How about you ?

Mike

Mike - Our plans are very similar to yours. A few days down at Whitewater State Park in May, then a week in June in Custer State Park, where we have found a perfect CG, then a week up on the North Shore in September for a little grouse hunting. We're too busy with our book project to do much more this year!

Another lonnnnng trip for us.

On or about June 2 we head from Arcata (NorCal) to Oceanside. Vic is working for the Race Across America bicycle race again, which starts June 8. We'll follow the race (while Vic does photos and interviews for the organizers and a few bike websites) all the way to Annapolis MD.

We'll see Washington DC (all the marble and the Smithsonian) before heading to Alberta, Canada. The mountain bike 24 Hours World Championships are there, July 26 and Vic is working for those organizers doing---you guessed it----photos, interviews and website reports.

Then it's back home to NorCal, getting back to the land o'redwoods about August 2.

Kathy

p.s. I know, I know, I never posted any photos from our '07 trip. Will do soon. There are plenty more like this one of Vic, MacGregor the wonder dog and our '72 TrailMite at the Badlands of South Dakota.

Early in May I have to head east for PA for a "required" wedding. I'll mosey around there for a couple of weeks then head home via VA/NC/GA/TN to see friends along the way. Gotta get back to put in my garden around the first of June and attend local brandings-- our social events of the year! Later I want to go up to the Little Bighorn Battlefield for a few days. Would like to be able to make a couple of short trips this summer but that's probably not gonna happen. Too much to do here.

At some point this summer, I will be purchasing a 16footer side dinette, and bath. After that I plan on using my limited holidays (this year) to enjoy it with my family.

We camped pretty much every weekend last year close to home and will do so again this summer. This year, with rising gas prices I am hoping to take the kids on a long trip in case (likely) it's not affordable in the future.

From Vancouver Island we will be heading through BC to Alberta, down through Montana to where one of our partners works. Depending on time we might head down to Utah but if not back through Idaho -> Washington.

Thankfully, I have one of those few jobs where I can work wherever there is internet access so if we find a nice place to spend a few days with wireless, all is good =)

Pick up the new Casita in May and drive back home to Montana. Various long week-end trips relatively close to home and the Black Hills in late August. By the way, can anyone recommend an RV park in or near Custer, SD. I know that Custer State Park has electricity now but we would like the other hook-ups. I've checked the RV park reviews, but would be very interested in any and all opinions.

This is where we are staying, Big Pine Campground. We have never stayed there, but have heard great things about it. The sites are more private which my wife and I like. The owners are really nice.

I haven't made too many plans. I leave towards the end of May for Washington and will take the trailer with me. June something there is a corgi campout on the Washington coast. I'm hoping to go somewhere WITHOUT FIREWORKS over the 4th of July but it may or may not be with the trailer. Then in mid-August we head home via Eureka, California, where we will attend an agility trial. My cabin is in such a great location that we don't feel the need to go anywhere once we get there.

I thought about NOG but there's the possibility of a cello weekend on Vancouver Island that same weekend so I decided if I go anywhere it will be north.

I have issued a monetary challenge in the sightings post if someone spots us, so I must give a hearty "nice try" to all my fellow fiberglass Rv'ers for concocting this post to try and get me to reveal our camping schedule. It won't work! I will simply reveal that we have a very aggressive camping schedule in the works.

Catch us if you can.......

No special plans here... we have several parks that are very near here ( 1 to 2 hrs away) so I can pretty well pick where I want to go and a reasonable distance to get a quick get a way... so hopefully I can work in a few this summer. One will be to the coast tho...( thats a must) the others will be going to the east end of the county..

working puts a cramp in and camping plans....
