On the Road # 1, 2003 - Planning the year
We're leaving home the 17th of Jan for Florence, MS to visit Nita, Bob, Nathan & Jenna for a few days and will go south on I-55 and head west on I-10. We'll spend a weekend in Houston with Bruce and Judy and will make other stops along the way to Sierra Vista, AZ for the Cowboy Music and Poetry Gathering, Feb 7-9. We'll be roaming around AZ and NM until we head north to MN in the spring. We should be doing email 2-3 times a week while on the road. If any of you are traveling in that area, drop us an email and we'll see if our trails will cross. We plan to visit our friends, the Lynns in MN after the snow melts and will travel east through Canada, to Maine, to visit some old friends, Frank & Mary Ann Harding, who we last saw at Argentia, NFLD with the Navy in 1963. Wonder if they'll look any different? We'll then go to Nova Scotia to catch the ferry to Newfoundland, where we'll tour for a few weeks, including the old base at Argentia, now a NFLD resort, since the base closed soon after we left there. We'll come back to ME and wait for fall colors, then follow the color south to get home by Nov 1. That is all the itenary we have. We'll get to places when we arrive and go when we decide to leave. We'll try to stop at National Parks, points of interest, state parks, Canadian and Provincial parks and anything else that strikes our fancy along the way. We'll be sending regular email to the addresses on this email with pictures unless you've asked us to hold the pictures. If you know anybody we've left off, send us an email. If you're tired of getting our email or want to discontinue pictures, let us know and we'll take you off. If your email comes back we'll also take you off.
