A change in vacation plans

I've wanted to visit Montana and Wyoming for a long time, specifically Glacier National Park.  Cliff wasn't thrilled with the prospect of traveling that far, since I don't drive and he'd be doing all that driving.  But the oldest grandson was ready, willing, and able to go along and be the second driver.  So we've been making plans to go.    
In the past few days, the grandson has had some job changes:  it's a promotion of sorts, but it means he doesn't get vacation time for a year.  So much for his being the relief driver.  


There's no way I'm going to subject Cliff to doing all the driving to go that far, when he wasn't so thrilled about the trip anyhow.  I've already told him that, and he said it's the best news he's heard all day.  I believe we'll stick our necks out and opt for a motorcycle ride to someplace closer:  possibly Colorado (which we both love), or maybe South Dakota.  Heck, even Arkansas would be nice.  We'll see.  


Maybe next year we'll make Glacier National Park.

I hope you make it there one of these days. That is just like life though we all make plans and never know just how they'll turn out. My vacation has begun. I'm at my camper and lovin' it.

IF YOU TRAVEL TO ARKANSAS, SLOW DOWN WHEN APPROACHING 'WEDDINGTON',OUR FAMILY PICKED STRAWBERRIES THERE IN THE YEAR 1926, THEN A QUAINT OLD SOUTHERN VILLAGE DURING THE MODEL-T FORD DAYS.
MAINLY FOREST LAND BACK THEN. BEAUTIFUL AREA, NICE LAKE TOO. sam

Hope you get to Arkansas. I was there a few years back in Eureka Springs, after a stop in Branson and had a wonderful time.

If you do go make sure you go thru the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and then up to Glacier! Gorgeous all the way. I lived in Great Falls, MT for a couple years. Love Montana!
