On the road again

A relaxing Fourth. Morning at the Y followed by several hours in my friend’s pool.

If things go well, today will be my last day in Houston for a while. Tomorrow I’m heading south to meet up with two of my sisters and my brother-in-law to start our month-long trip out west. Driving straight through to California (Los Banos and Gilroy) to visit out two oldest sisters for a week or so, then heading north towards Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana, then back down to Texas —  to camp out in state and national parks.

Unlike with previous such trips, I have done little planning and have no reservations at any of the parks. The only thing I really care about is seeing, at last, Glacier National Park. As I’ve done in past trips, I will be blogging about the trip at www.juanzqui.com. Some of you have enjoyed these posts in the past and I hope  that you enjoy these also.

I’m looking forward to this. I haven’t done much writing since my retirement. Have just not been in a writing mood. But travel has a way of bringing out the writer in me.

Trying to make important decisions on what to take with me. Electronic stuff, in particular. Definitely my iPhone. I may leave the iPad behind. I will need my Mac notebook computer (for downloading photo files), and I really would love to take my Microsoft Surface, because I love writing on it. But that’s a lot gear to carry, in addition to my cameras and lenses and other photo equipment. Decisions.
