Do you know how many blogs and articles and chapters and videos are out there on packing!? Throw some clothes
into a backpack or suitcase and go! You can buy anything you need on the road. If you are reading such blogs it
means you have not left yet. I am not going to be writing about such things.
I am going to be writing about my travel and the sites and the people and the fun. I want to excite you to GO!
For a weekend, a week, a month, a year, or I’m never coming back, just go. I want to tell you about my travels
and get you inspired to see the things and experience the sites and meet people. I have used every single day and then
some of my 6 weeks off each year for the past 5 years. I am going to tell you about those trips while I get ready for 2016.
We are planning on moving from Silicon Valley in early 2016 and arriving in Portland Oregon in mid 2017. We are
looking at what we should see in the area before we leave. I saw Yosemite, the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest,
Mt Whitney over the summer.
San Francisco has been and is the #1 destination in the world. I live 40 minutes away. We went to San Francisco twice
this year. Many things are inexpensive or free. We walked across the Golden Gate Bridge (free) and took the cable car
to Fisherman’s Wharf ($6). Tomorrow we are going to Alcatraz. Sally has never been there and it has been 14 years for
me. I have seen it 100 times, but only been once. Whether for a day or a week each trip has been fun. Drive an hour or
drive 5 hours, or take a 13 hour flight and get out and see things.
I will be telling you about St John USVI in my next blog. One of my favorite pictures I have ever taken was there and
the best snorkeling I have ever experienced too.
