Well, we decided to opt out of the Quartzite trip after all. Just can't get excited about the destination and our travel plans are shaping up for the spring. So, we've decided to FINALLY head south on Highway 1 (yes, we live here and have owned the Navion for almost a whole year now and haven't been down there in her yet) and camp at Kirk Creek Campground, a National Forest Service site right on the ocean. We are having excellent weather right now (high 60s), but who knows what it'll be like in 2 weeks. Boondocking in January--bring it on!
Looks like the big spring, off-season trip will start in early March: 2 Cubs games in Phoenix with our best friend from Chicago on the way to Roadfood Festival and Lisa's sister's bday in New Orleans. Parental visit and who knows what route back to the West Coast by early May.
