Home is Where we Hook-up

What’s the plan?

Now is the time when most people are talking about plans for the new year. Resolutions, goals, organizing, planning for the year ahead. I tried to answer the question about where we would be in 2009. One thing is for sure, we will be in Kissimmee, Florida until February 22nd, 2009. Our RV space is rented until then, and it’s still too cold to be heading north. Keith returns from a 3.5 week tour in Adelaide, Australia this week. That is the only other thing I know for sure.

We’d like to spend more time in Savannah, GA timing it to be able to partake in their annual Tour of Homes and Gardens at the end of March. We spent two nights in the Savannah area on our way down to Florida, did a walking tour and ate at Paula Deen’s restaurant, it’s just one of those places that warrants more time. It’s on the list.

Washington D.C. lived up to every notion I ever had of the Capitol city, and then some. The original idea was to visit in the spring and see the cherry trees in bloom. Our first trip was in late May, our second visit was late October – so if the third times a charm, we will get back up that way this April.

Newfoundland is definitely on the list. Keith tells such fantastic stories of working up there, says you wake in the morning with sore stomach muscles from laughing so hard. Sounds like a good time to me! This requires a major ferry crossing in the RV, and is a trip only to be planned for in the mid-summer otherwise it likely still be too cold.

Loosely planned is another summer in the 1000 Islands area of Ontario, as a base. Most likely Keith will be going back and forth to Italy throughout.

Fall 2009 we will try to be in the right place in the right time for the New England fall colors (last year’s plan) and by the winter maybe we can get a trip to Belize in. We’d like to get a trip to Belize in this winter, but, if we don’t make it, it goes back on the list.

All speculation, but it’s a start. What about you, where will you be in 2009?



  1. Wow, how cool to have those options! I hope we can cross paths this year.

    We kinda have a general idea that we’ll be in Colorado for much of the year, once the snow melts. But who knows, we may get bored and head somewhere else. One of the many perks of life on the road!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful plan! My 2009 will involve work, work and work. 🙂 NO big trips just little ones such as another drive back to VA and a conference in Niagara Falls, possibly a trip to see family in Kingston, ON and friends in Wasaga Beach, ON.

    We visited DC during blossom time. I didn’t plan it, had no idea it was THE time to go, so we were lucky. It is beautiful.

    I’ve been to every province in Canada except the territories and Newfoundland. I have several friends that have moved there (to NL) and I hope to visit them sometime in the next couple of years. I’ve heard wonderful things about the natural beauty and the friendliness of the people.

    Been through the 1000 islands several time but always by boat on trips from Kingston. It’s lovely.

    If you find yourself passing through Detroit, Michigan on your way to the Windsor border – know that there is always a hot meal and good conversation waiting – you’re welcome to stop by!
