Given the advice of another thread that we should not put things off ...
Anyone going on vacations or trips or big plans around your home?
I'll kick off the thread - I'm planning two vacations:
1) Heading to Yellowstone & Utah in mid-September for 9 days. Plan on spending 5 days in Yellowstone & doing a lot of hiking. Won't have a bike with me and I doubt they have many trails that I could ride. Then spending a couple of days in the Salt Lake / Provo area with good friends, one of which has a couple of bikes and so I may get out and ride the Provo Canyon trail.
This trip is being done "on the cheap." Supersaver air fare, heavily discounted compact car rental, five nights in a $40/night motel and 3 nights spent at friends' homes.
This a real example of not putting it off any longer. Been wanting to visit Yellowstone since I was 6 and almost didn't go this year. But in reflecting on it, I realized it was a golden opportunity and one that I might sorely regret not having taken.
2) Spending 5-7 days riding bike trails in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Plan to visit Lanesboro, MN and ride the Root River Trail for 3 days or so. Then on to Trempealeau, WI to ride along the Mississippi on the Great River Trail. Could spend a day on the Elroy-Sparta Trail or in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Hope to ride about 30-35 miles a day, could do less, might do more.
