    Bravo!
    I can see the Local Angler series becoming the go-to resource for fishing the Lone Star State, and there are a LOT of fisherfolk in Texas. Well done! If the new guides are half as good as...

    New Mexico's Golden Autumn

    Good Morning, and Happy October!

    Four years ago this week I was driving the backroads of New Mexico, doing the research for my book, Arizona and New Mexico: 25 Scenic Side Trips. As it happens,...

    Hello!

    There's actually not that great a difference in elevation between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, and if you're looking for Christmas markets, Santa Fe goes all out, with the whole downtown area...

    All newer neighborhoods have them. It's one of the reasons I love my OLD Phoenix neighborhood! (And my house that's almost as old as me! ;-) I realize that there's a place for HOA's, that code...

    I would imagine that this concept would work best (if it works at all), in areas that are more rural, hosts living outside the major cities, or on larger properties with plenty of room and no idea...

    Sticky: I need to look before I leap!

    Whoops--my bad. As usual, Donna, you were way ahead of me! Thanks again for putting this together. I'd really love to try some of these on for size, the further north, the better! Here's hoping that...

    Good one, Donna! Have you considered doing one of these for US 89 (one of my personal favorites)? It starts and ends in about the same places as US 93, but goes through some very different country...

    Your idea would be a lot more useful!

    This new app is actually less sophisticated than your idea. The app displays a modified Google maps screen that flows along with you as you travel, just like any other GPS or mapping app. If you pass...

    It's a nice idea, but they're dreaming if they think people will pay $6.99 per week for the service that's required to actually use their "free" app. I signed up for the free trial (stopping short of...

    Hello!

    If Yellowstone is a must-see, and 10 days is an absolute limit, driving a rental one way (either a car or an RV), and then flying home to Knoxville might be worth considering. You could...

    That inconsistency is exactly what's killing us, by the tens of thousands! One thing that should be abundantly clear at this point is that we cannot rely on any level of government to protect us from...
  15. Might be safer (and cheaper) to fly home!

    Even if you were to get lucky and find someone to share a ride with, there will still be expenses. Half the cost of the fuel, lodging expenses, restaurant meals along the way, and if the...

    I'm at a spot you can drive to, where there's a helluva view. There is what appears to be a ski lift in the vicinity. There is a nearby...

    Donna:

    If it's not too late, you might want to do a quick edit of your "Day 30" post. Most of your text is doubled up! (Not that it isn't worth reading twice--it's a good report!)
