Can’t Wait to Show Off My Bikini
Oh stop! Shame on you.
Of course, I mean my new Jeep Bikini Top. I am in the process of equipping my Jeep for the long, off-road trip we are planning for next summer. So far, we have only one problem. We have no idea where we are going.
Some possibilities include Alaska, the Canadian Rockies, the Pacific Northwest, and Labrador.
Alaska is huge, and there is no way I could see all the areas I would like to visit there in one lifetime. However, hiking up some of Mount McKinley has always been one of my dreams and it is something I will accomplish.
Carol has not spent much time in the Canadian Rockies, but I have. They are massive and majestic, and the fishing is superb. Exploring some regions I have never seen is enticing. Half the fun is studying up on the various accessible wilderness areas.
I am enamored with the Pacific Northwest. One of my fondest memories in life was hiking with my oldest daughter 257 miles through the Cascades into Canada. We saw elk, bear, marmots, mule deer, and many animals I had never seen before, all in their natural habitats. The fishing was fabulous, which was a good thing because that’s all we had to eat for three weeks!
Labrador interests me greatly. We have explored Newfoundland, which is an island, when we lived in New Hampshire. It is odd that we never traveled to Labrador, but our rationale was that since it is connected to the mainland, “we could always go there.” Now, from Florida, it is a trek.
Help us out. Do any of you have experience in these areas, or perhaps a remote spot we have overlooked?
