This Year It’s All About the Shoes!

Appropriate Footwear for the Travels Ahead

If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to finalize those 20018 travel plans. My plans (details in future posts) thus far include a hiking trip with REI to the Greek Islands (thus the need for new hiking boots); a  trip to the Grand Canyon and Zion National Parks (gotta actually use the boots now); and a destination, to be determined, with a rented Class B motorhome. As usual we plan family visits to Chicago and the environs during the nicer weather.

The Chicago Loop

Chicago makes a nice hub for visits to midwestern destinations. Likely we will revisit the Chicago Jazz Fest

One of many concerts at the 2017 Chicago Jazz Fest

and the massive arts and craft fair in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Wow! A great year awaits.
