Hey, Idaho is on the list!

The northern part of Idaho has some very nice mountain ranges. They don't grow potatoes there, you know? I have been there on two RV treks, but stayed only a few days each time. One can certainly stay a lot longer. And I like Boise downtown too. It is charming and not crowded as many larger cities. And Idaho wine country is not crowded and commercialized like Napa Valley.

We have plans to visit the Pacific NW and British Columbia in July. We just began the planning phase and will probably start in Seattle, then Vancouver, so if anyone out there has experience or recommendations for outdoor (mostly) adventures and places to stay, please feel free to chime in.

Requests for information on BC come up at least monthly and appear to be increasing in frequency. Perhaps you could search the existing threads before asking some more specific questions.

Tourism in BC was up 17% in 2016 and 2017 is expected to be busier, based on several factors, including the exchange rate, Canada's 150th Birthday, and the NY Times ranking of Canada as the #1 place to visit this year. Best to start your planning early. Oh, and welcome!

Trying to plan my vacation for this spring now. I did a fairly extensive tour of Idaho in 2015, so it won't be on my list for this year, but I would enjoy another visit. Thinking of maybe somewhere in New England or perhaps the lake coast area in Michigan. I need to get busy and make plans or else the year goes by with only little trips and no real big vacation (like 2016).

Was there two years ago. Completely dominated on the coast by Russian tourists.

I 'fled' north.

Bummer...I always had the idea of possibly going back for a fourth visit...perhaps I left it too long.

You can spend a couple of months in the New England area. Boston is the best, in my opinion. So much history.

Just spend 10 days in New York City at Christmas. Lovely and many international people there.

Too much to list, but if you haven't been to the New England area, I would say go.

Good luck with your plans and have fun on any trips you go on!

Ah, the world looks small when you fly over it at 33,000 ft and 550 mph. Get down on the ground, and even with a car you cannot see it all. I have never backpacked, but on foot a half-day hike does not get me very far.

Some people say they don't like to travel and I understand that, but how can one say that he has seen it all, or seen enough?

If you enjoy beer, one of my favorite spots is the world's largest hop farm, up by Bonner's Ferry.

Elk Mountain Farms

That's it!

I haven't been out of the New Orleans metro area for years. Always something new to discover, new things going on, and the place I stay at is heaven on earth to me.
