How many miles/days planned this year?

I began laying out a few trips and things we wanted to do this year, then began the tallying up of planned miles, knowing this was just the 'base' list for this spring and summer. I laid out four things we will participate in, in three trips. Curious, I totalled the projected miles. Right at six thousand. Hmmm, thought I. wonder how much others plan to do, and what kind of trips they planned; family vacations, short, close to home, lots of weekends, a few days at a time, a week at a time, two weeks to a month?
Lay it out for us, and tell us the details; length of trip in days AND miles!

Our first will be to go to NY to celebrate our Annie's grafuation from medical school.... aprx 2300 miles on the round, 8 or 9 days long.

Second will take us to the Forums rally at Morrain View, then on to Kalamazoo, Michigan for four days of dog shows and dog sports! Eleven days of fun and friends! And a relatively short thousand mile round, and twelve days out.

Third is our annual Great Northeast Poodle Party and Reunion (in NH) followed by going down to visit friends on Long Island. This is the biggie one for us, something we look forward to each year in late summer, early autumn. Not a terrible amount of miles on the round, but this is the one we spend time on! Sixteen or more days are blocked out for this one! For only twenty eight hundred miles!

So we are totalling about six thousand miles, thirty six days, and I'm sure we will add several shorter trips.
How about you?

Shooting for option 3 - but it will probably be option 2. Our trips are usually 3 and 4 day weekends. As soon as I win the lottery we're hittin' the road!

We did about 15,000 miles last year, wish I could double it this year but it'll probably be the same. Lot of weekend trips with three or four long ones. The big trip last year was to North Carolina. Also made it to Colorado a couple of times.

This year we plan to hit the west again.
