It was a pretty successful year of travel for me although there were a few trips I cancelled due to lack of funds – but they’re on the 2104 schedule! Here is a preview of what I have planned for 2014:

Trips with Friends:
April: Mexico (this is still in the rough stages so I am not sure if it will pan out or not)

Solo Trip:
May: Chicago IL / Milwaukee WI / Spring Green WI

Trips with Boomer:
June: Oregon Coast / Central Oregon/ Mount St Helens
September: Southern Wyoming / Northern, Central and Southwestern Colorado / South Eastern Utah / Montana

I have my fingers crossed that I will not have to cancel any of the above – but some things are out of my control. Since I have such a long planning schedule I hope to be able to “travel hack” down as much of the costs that I can but when you travel primarily by car the cost of fuel is your worst enemy. Luckily however I traded in the truck for a newer SUV that gets twice the gas mileage so that will help a little. I am also looking forward to Boomer being more comfortable in the car as we travel. You know because it is really all about him!

Where did you travel to this year?  Did you visit new places or familiar favorites?
