Travelled most of the paved hiways in Colorado. Durango, Silverton, San Luis Valley, Bishops Castle, Steamboat Springs, Buena Vista and the Western Slope. Spent 4 days in Yuma two weekends ago in 105f heat, but had a good time.
Been to:
Bryce Canyon
Monument Valley
Moab
Crazy Horse
Mt. Rushmore
Yellowstone
Glacier NP
Vancouver, BC
Planning a trip from Nebraska to So. California in late November, figure it will be close to 3,000 miles.
Still working on the bucket list.

Don't count on parking an Airstream at the Fairgrounds for JazzFest, unless you're one of the musicians performing there. Make your reservations early for the French Quarter RV Park, and ride the shuttle to the Fairgrounds.

Anyway, my list (so far, more to be added as I think of them):
Natchez Trace;
Blue Ridge Parkway;
WBCCI International Rally;
Canopener 2015 (it will be my very first post-retirement rally!)

So far, since I've been an Airstream owner, I haven't camped in the same park twice, though there are a few I wouldn't mind going back to, when my imagination fails me and I can't think of a new place to go. With literally a hundred places to go even just within a one-day's travel radius of where I live, why would I ever want to go to someplace I've already been when someplace new still awaits?

I'll make an exception for recurring rallies, though, because then I'm going more for the people than the venue.

I can. One simply cannot measure the vast depths of my indifference toward Mexico's scenic beauty, which is no more scenic and no more beautiful than that of my native land. Well, aside from pre-Columbian pyramids that we don't have, but I've got no particular desire to caravan to those.

Meaning no offense to anyone from Mexico, of course. I don't hate Mexico, I'm just indifferent.

I would love to see Mexico by Airstream but because of the stories we have heard regarding safety in Mexico, I would not feel comfortable traveling alone with my trailer. My father in law travels regularly to Mexico but it's not for me.

There are also people who are comfortable towing through snow storms, but I'm not one of those people either.

Hopefully in my lifetime things will change and we will one day travel down to Mexico with the trailer.

Even without Mexico, I probably won't have time to see all of Canada and the US.

Ultimate Caravan:

Lake Erie to Florida

Ferry to Cancun or close.

Panama to French Guiana

Peru to Chili to the Beagle Channel

Little jump by ferry to Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.

Might need another propane tank.

I get 4 weeks vacation next year.

I was talking to my wife today, about taking three or four months off work and taking the trailer and the boys across Canada. Go west up north and then return back east via the US.

Not next year, but with a bit of luck, the year after we should be able to swing it.
