I have been planning this Alaksa trip for five months.
I've made egg mods, bought tickets, made reservations, got passport, gun permits, fishing licenses... all that.
New lenses
New maps

But I finished everything two weeks ago!
So for the last two weeks I have been a basket case of anticipation.

Have you ever over planned or planned too soon?

Never! I'm such a procrastinator!

I plan when leaving drive way. Works best for me unless I know i have to be at a certain place at a certain time.

Depends. Like a trip you're taking I'd plan and plan and plan... anticipation is half the fun. Besides, it takes budgeting for an extended trip... that's something I have to do.

But, I can also "go" on the spur of the moment... but usually just for a weekend. Buy groceries when I get there! It's one of the great things of having a trailer... just throw in the clothes and off I can go.

Did you pack the camera????

I take it you are traveling alone. :duck

I may not have over-planned, but I have planned over (and over, and over, and over)...
Honey, I know you just printed up the AAA TripTick<sup></sup>, but I just discovered a WONDERFUL place that we just HAVE TO go to, and it is only 50 miles out of our way... :bh

:work:

I have been planning a 3-4 month excursion now for months, getting the Casita set up like I want it, loading what I consider essentials, then unloading what I decide I may not need, trying to keep my "stuff" about 350 pounds. I leave next week and even though I have obsessed over the tug and tow, I am still not sure which direction to even go.

As for my trip plans, perhaps they are somewhat overly ambitious. First, I thought I'd wander about due west from Florida, fishing some in the panhandle, then casually drift towards the Texas coast, and on towards Grand Canyon, Death Valley, up the California coast towards BC and pick up the Alcan Highway to Fairbanks, and, maybe even pull the Casita further north to the Arctic Circle. On the way back either through Canada or across the northern US, down the Mississippi Valley to St Louis and back to Florida.

But, after looking at the temps in the SW I have about decided to do the exact reverse and save the SW towards the end of September and October, when it should be cooler.

I am leaving mid week of next week, later than I originally intended and have about decided to do the exact reverse, heading first north and later west. Well, I have until Wednesday or Thursday, Likely July 1st, to decide.

when wilderness tripping by canoe I would plan and plan and plan. I would pack everything and then repack sevaral times. Once away from the dock you're on your own and have to make do with what you have with you. At least by car you can buy what you forgot and left behind.
Now's the time to go and sit in the trailer and recheck everything that you're taking. Enjoy the pleasure of knowing just where it all is put. When you finally put the pedal to the metal you know that it will all go as planned.
Go well!
