Like I have been saying, I have a ton of vacation left :). So as of now, I am leaving on the 23rd of Dec (Tuesday) and returning on the 4th of Jan (Sunday) for a total of 13 days. I am currently planning to visit southern florida. So a total driving time of 4 days, leaving me around 9 days to explore.
Here is approx itinerary:
a) Everglades Natl Park: 3 nights
b) Big Cypress Natl Preserve: 3/4 nights
c) Biscayne Natl Park: 2/3 nights
b) and c) are fairly flexible as the camping is first come first serve, only everglades needs the reservation. If time permits, I will try to spend a few nights in the Dry tortugas island (it is gonna be tough as I have to carry everything with me, including water). I am planning to just wing most of the trip, and let's see what happens.
Now, even after this long vacation, I will still carry over 4 days into next year :). So I will have like 4 and half weeks vacation next year, which is cool. I will plan 4 one week long trips next year, which is just right.
