To me, it is driving cross country with my wife. On our honeymoon, we drove cross country - 9200 miles in a Ford Pinto, staying in motels with a few campgrounds in 4 weeks. Now, on our 39th anniversary, we will spend 10 weeks, starting with 6 days to get to Chilliwack to pick up our Escape. Then, we will meander back home creating our itinerary as we go.

Thanks to the interstate highway system, it is now possible to travel across the country from coast to coast without seeing anything - Charles Kuralt

Grand Canyon -- We have been a lot of beautiful places but it's the only one that literally made me cry.

Like kstock11, the first item on our list is a cross-country trip and we've decided that this is the year to do it. We leave on August 22 from Portland and on to Alexandria, VA to visit our daughter and then back to Portland. We'll be gone a month. On our return we'll accomplish an item on Robin's list. We're spending two days in Murfreesboro, TN where her great-great-great grandfather died in the Battle of Stones River during the Civil War.

My bucket list is loooong, and includes lots of travel, by plane, by ship, by canoe, by foot, and of course with my RV,

As far as trailer camping goes, most of my big items will come when I retire, when I want to spent a lot of time on the road, travelling most of North America.

The top two priorities are to travel north to Alaska and the NWT, and to travel east to the Maritimes. Of course side trips and taking our time would be in order.

I would like to travel to Mexico, and even beyond with my trailer too. Pretty sure I will get A/C by then.

First on the list is Glacier National Park. One thing I've learned is to do it now and not wait for retirement. My Father and Mother had plans to purchase a trailer and see the sights but it never happened because of health reasons. What ever is on your bucket list, make it happen as soon as possible. Pete

I finally retired in June last year and my first bucket list trip was traveling out through Canada to tour the Maritimes, NB, PEI, NS/CB, and NF. Stayed mostly in the Canada National parks and visited most of the national park historical sites, very meaningful and interesting. Returned via the US crossing at St Stephens NB into Maine. Visited at the White Mountains, Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, Deadwood and Yellowstone. Travelled in my previous RV a Chinook Concourse MH a total of 16,722 km door to door, and was away 10 weeks. This year the second BL trip to the NWT.
