Geezers, Wyoming and South Dakota - Final Thoughts

As far as I can remember, this 30-day, 5,500 mile trip was our longest road trip since I retired.  I have to admit that we were wearing down a bit towards the end, but we really did enjoy every minute of it.  The highlights were the week we spent at the Canyon Ranch in Big Horn with our friends, and our visit with Hilary and Jason's family in Portland, but the whole trip was wonderful.

There is something about a road trip that Val and I really enjoy.  You see every bit of country you travel through; the small towns, the ever changing scenery that we pass through, and the beautiful parks and natural wonders that we visit.  When you travel by car you get a much better appreciation of what a great and diverse country we live in here in the US.  Road trips aren’t for everyone as it can get tiring, but what a way to see the country.

For one of the few times since I retired, we don’t have much planned for future travels, but we have plenty of ideas so we will probably do something in the near future.   Our next scheduled big trip is in July when we take a 35-day cruise crossing the North Atlantic and it's called the Voyage of the Vikings.  That’s it for now, see you on down the road.
