      well..because each time a post is opened it counts as a view.

       

      SOOOO…if someone…say BG, posts something..and you answer, then it gets say…7 responses, maybe YOU will open it 7 times to see the responses. and anyone following it might open it that many times. Each time it's opened it counts. SO even if only a few people are following it, they all count as a fresh view each time.

       

      How you doin' Bill? How's pat? you have any plans to go somewhere exotic?

        Hi Dian. We are well. Pat has one small recontruction (nipples) soon then that is over with. We are taking delivery of a new Class A motorhome this week and plan to hit the road in May sometime. We always sing (very badly) "On the Road Again" when we head out the first morning.  I'm sure your version would sound much better!   :)

        I found a fantastic place last year on my travels in Utah – Grosvenor's Arch.  Very impressive and easy to get right up underneath it.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grosvenor_Arch  It's relatively close to Kodachrome Basin if you look on a map of southern Utah.  In the northern part of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.  However, the road to the arch and surrounding areas is NOT RV accessible.  Apparently, they haven't done much maintenance on it in the last couple of years and portions of it were horrendous.  (We were in a 4Runner with pretty decent clearance).  The road to the arch coming from the north wasn't terrible, but the further south you went, the worse the road got.  Great big ruts and washouts that make maneuvering in a big vehicle tough.  I took some fantastic pictures of the arch.  In terms of beautiful Utah scenery, it rates high.  And that's saying a lot with 5 national parks here.

        Where are the roads taking you this summer?

        Plans not finalized yet. East coast to Maine first. West to Montana later. Colorado and Utah in the fall. Santa Fe for afew weeks and then on home. Plan to see eastern Utah and south to Monument Valley.  So many sights/so little time!  Utah is blessed with beautiful parks. Bryce And Zion are among my favorites anywhere.

        I did southeastern Utah last fall.  Monument Valley was amazing.  However, you will have to take a "tour" to see it.  I don't believe it is RV accessible either.  They have these trucks with seats setup high and they drive like maniacs!  At least that was what we observed.  (Actually, we observed 2 trucks driving like that — the rest were more sedate).  The tours don't take the entire loop you can take otherwise and they want you to stay on the paths.  No hiking.  We saw some cars doing it very slowly.  It's all dirt road on a reservation.  However, the scenery is worth it.  Evening pictures are amazing and the famous thumb pictures can be seen from the lodge/visitor center.  Goosenecks State Park, Valley of the Gods, Natural Bridges Natural Monument, Hovenweep are all easily accessible with Canyonlands (Needles section), Dead Horse Point and Arches further north.  A beautiful corridor to travel.  I have a friend who owns a beautful Inn in Bluff, UT.  Nicest thing in that town, lol.  Goblin Valley is a little out of the way, but the thousands of hoodoos there are great.  And those you can walk on, over and around.  More intimate than the national parks.  The whole area in the fall is fantastic.  I envy your road trip – it sounds amazing!

      Hey – didn't even know if I remembered my username and password.  Haven't been here in months, maybe a couple years?  Anyway, have just been checking every once in a while since I get Amy's caring bridge emails and want to check up on her.

       

      Good to see you all.  I'll keep checking.
