We're starting to talk vacation plans! We're thinking of making a big triangle ... Wisconsin to Texas to Tennessee and back up to Wisconsin.
When we vacation we don't like setting a time table of having to be at a specific place at a certain time ~ as we travel along if we see something that interest us and we feel like stopping for awhile ... we do. Just as long as we keep it in the time frame of being able to get back home a day in advance of having to go back to work.
Of course, another big factor in vacation planning for us is the cost. Last night, we went over the cost of our trip we made in Feb. 2010 ~ and what we figure the difference will be this year. Gas, last year averaged 2.39 a gal ~ so we'll be a little higher this year with the average over 3.00 nationwide. Right now we're paying 3.24.
I'm so glad that we finally got our hospital / medical bills paid down enough that I feel comfortable enough about making this kind of trip again. In a few more payments we should be free of the medical debts we had hanging over our heads for the last five years... now to keep it that way.
So.... anyone out there with some suggestions of must see things to do or see (that aren't going to cost us an arm or a leg) between Park Falls, WI to Ft. Worth, TX to Nashville, TN to Park Falls, WI ????
I remember one time we stopped in Kansas somewhere and took a tour of a cookie factory ~ and had a blast doing it ... yes... we're open for suggestions. Places that give tours, little off the wall restaurants, museums, places that just haven't made it into the map brochures, waterfalls, mountains, animals, farms, gardens ... yes .... we're open to suggestions.
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
