I need a vacation. Badly. I need peace and quiet. Badly. I need countryside and stars. Badly.
I'm a country guy living in downtown Minneapolis and it's starting to take a toll on me. Do the stars even exist anymore? I've been here six years and haven't had a vacation the whole time. I'm overwhelmed by noise here and I need a break.
I want to plan a roadtrip. It will be just me. My vacation days are September 1-11. I could really use some experienced help here! I'm not too terribly fussy on where I go, but I want to see the countryside and stars again. I'll camp if there's somewhere magical to do it.
I need something special. Breathtaking. Gorgeous. Somewhere where I won't see or hear traffic or many people. I know that could be hard on a roadtrip, but I thought you folks might know of some places I could stop for a day and enjoy that might fit the bill. Peace and quiet, horseback riding, fishing, camping, hiking, lakes, mountains, rivers, wildlife, wind, etc., That's me in a nutshell. I enjoy living simply and don't care about the latest gadgets or must-haves.
Where do I want to go? Anywhere! I'll drive anywhere and back as long as I have two days to relax before I go back to work. In other words, I could be gone for as short as a weekend or as long as the 1st - 9th.
I'll be looking around this site and checking back. I'd be grateful for any suggestions, reminders, don't-forgets, avoid-these-things, etc., that you might be kind enough to offer. Look forward to hearing from you.
