I'm not much of a traveler and rarely take the opportunity to pack a suit case and get a way. I miss everything about my home when I travel. Meals are a pain when you're GF, strange beds are uncomfortable when you have back problems, and when you're on the road, it's just not that easy to come by a good cup of tea. If money wasn't an issue I'd be a little more willing to figure things out, but it's really so much easier to stay home.
The end of September I'll head (all of 15 miles) up Little Cottonwood Canyon to Alta for Knitter's Retreat. YAY! Then, in October, I'll be heading to Flagstaff to visit my Dad. He's 86 years old and he still walks or hikes nearly every day with a group of guys who are around his age.
He loves it and he passed on his love of the outdoors to me. We camped under the stars from the time I could walk. I was taught to appreciate and to love the landscape around me.
