So far on this trip, we have been fairly spontaneous with our schedule. In the past two months, we only had three appointments to keep with family and friends putting us up at their place or flying in to see us so we just kind of floated where we wanted to when we wanted to. This spontaneity gave us flexibility to stay longer in areas that we really enjoyed (i.e. San Francisco and Astoria, OR) but resulted in less time for other places (i.e. southern Oregon). It also made us miss seeing some people because we didn't know we were near them until after we were gone.
This month will be different. Not only are we making sure that we have time for everything and everyone we want to see, we are letting you know where we are going to be in advance. If we are going to be near you this month, please let us know! And if you have any recommendations for the areas we will be heading, let us know that as well!
