In February, we will be wandering south to Florida for a while. We will stay at a place my brother rents for part of the time, using it as a base for exploring. Depending on the weather, we want to again meander our way they're and back rather than a quick 24 hour drive.

Beyond that, we have no plans. We're hoping our daughter can store everything locally in Seattle and fly home in the spring and back in the fall. If not, we'll be headed there again, but wandering around some other parts of the country on our way home.

Or we might end up in Hawaii late spring to celebrate our 35th anniversary.

Continue our Appalachian trip, this year the northern part. I want to go back to the ATC so we will probably high ball it (hate the idea) up to Harpers Ferry to save time. From Harpers Ferry run up to Baxter State Park in Maine, spend a day to hike the five miles up Mount Katahdin. On the way back maybe stop in D.C., wife hasn't been there yet. Haven't mapped things out yet so I don't have any specific points we want to hit but I do know Mount Washington is a must on our list.

Well, I have to balance things between overlanding, motorcycle touring, and international travel.

Overlanding:
Ouray and Telluride, Colorado
  • Imogene Pass
  • Engineer Pass
  • Mosquito Pass
Moab, UT
  • Hell's Revenge (high on my list of trails to conquer)
  • Fins 'n' Things
  • Elephant Hill (been years since I've done it)
  • The Maze District (already planned)
Any Overland Bound event in the Sierras
Baja, Mexico (had to scrub the trip this year)

Motorcycle Touring:
Glacier National Park via Beartooth Pass (it's paved, but seriously, drive this road! Preferably in a sports car or on a sporty motorcycle)

General Travel:
Taiwan
SF Bay Area for my friends' wedding (probably will just take the car for this one)

Was planning on a trip to the Badlands in South Dakota, but since I got engaged, we're scrubbing that idea to save money, so probably just state parks/forests in Minnesota.

We try to pick one or two long trips a year, then go to our local stomping grounds on the weekends.

Sadly, we don't have local stomping grounds.. Indiana is in the middle of everything but it seems if you want to find good trails (U.P. or anywhere else decent) you have to travel 7hrs+.

I was going to make a list but you pretty much nailed my wants. I'll add Mojave Road though
