Destinations

Updated 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. Lots of miles. I left my pandemic apartment and took to the road in August 2021. Good to be back! I recalculated miles for each year (thank you Google Maps!) and realized I have put on a lot of miles on the Airstream – nearly 14,000 miles. Time for new tires 🙂

I like to stay in public parks when I can. I think they are usually good stewards of the land. I also tried Boondockers Welcome in 2018 and didn’t find enough sites that worked for me to continue membership. I also tried Harvest Hosts and found it to be more useful for overnight stops from point A to B, but not enough to keep my membership. ACE or COE = Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds
