Perhaps you remember vacations like I do.

During grade school, I saw a lot of the USA in our Chevrolet – as many states as my parents could drive through, several National Parks, and historical spots like Boston and Washington DC. Old enough to travel alone for several weeks, I spent time with my relatives in Utah, as well as with my best friend who had moved far away to Southern California. After high school, I toured Europe with a train pass. As a new homeowner and working mother, I didn’t have time or money to spend on vacations any fancier than camping. Now semi-retired, I chose activities, like hiking or bicycling trips.
