My husband, Randy, doesn't really get involved in the planning stage except to ask once in a while where we are going. He does, however tend to get in a rut easily. For example, on our first trip, Arches National Park was top priority. He loved it so much and had such an enjoyable time that now he wants to go back every year. We did go back...on the last trip. Now he wants to go again. He wants to plan a guided 4WD back country adventure...hey that sounds like fun...and we do love it there. OK i'll put it on the list.
Arches National Park, Utah
Crater Lake, Oregon
Olympia National Park
Yosemite/Kings Canyon/Sequoia, California
Glacier National Park, Montana
Jet boating in Hells Canyon, Idaho
Thats a short list but I will add to it as I research places to see and things to do.
We are taking the camper this year. We took it the first time and then last year we took the Z3. We really did miss the camper. It's nice to have all you need in the comforts of your own camper and there is so much more room.
The camper will need new tires and a canopy for the slide out before we go.
It's a start.
