Don't forget about the Salt River Canyon in eastern AZ. on US 60. 1/2 mile deep and you drive to the bottom and up the other side. An astonishing sight when you consider that the river only goes as far as Phoenix before being used up. Bob

Love to see other's ideas...might find a new one for us!

Done so far:
Meteor Crater
Alcatraz
Napa Wineries
Giant Redwoods in CA
Hershey's Candy
Baseball Hall of Fame
Niagara Falls
Blue Angle Air Show (son-in-law was in it)
NASCAR Race - last weekend, so much fun I got us season tickets for 2014
Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - Did last month. You've got to see this once! Words can not describe the sights and camping by the launch field. They will sometimes LAND in-between the rvs!
Sturgis Bike Week
Mardi Gras New Orleans - see as many parades as possible.

On the list:
Daytona 500
Indy 500
Indy car race - next June at Texas Speedway
World Series - hopefully both teams in warm area
MLB Ballparks one game at each - 2 down...a bunch to go
MLB Spring training - entire month at Grapefruit League then Cactus League another year
Yellowstone - been long time ago, want to stay 2wk+ and see it all.

Many other small things. May have to write a book...hey, think I'll add that to the list!

Glacier National Park

Go see this first, before they melt. The 'Going to the Sun Road' is supposed to be incredible. I can't wait.

Earlier in a thread like this somewhere I posted that I really have but one thing on my bucket list.. holding my grandchild.

The problem is.. I don't have one (yet)

I'm going to modify that slightly to "Spoiling my grandchild"

Who is due to make his or her appearance in this world long about Independence day (Yup, darling daughter called last week, Gotta admit, I do love that girl, and her husband is not bad either).

Take one or more of the special back country hikes offered by Mesa Verde:

2013 Special Backcountry Hikes - Mesa Verde National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

Some of these areas have been closed to the public for over 70 years, and the hikes are limited to just a few people. Fascinating! We learned a lot, since many of our fellow hikers were archaeologists or other researchers of the culture at Mesa Verde. We've been on them all.

Lots of territory there. What places specifically would you recommend?

While it is not the Grand Canyon the Tallulah Gorge north of Atlanta is impressive and beautiful, especially with the fall colors. It is also easily accessible and has a campground very close to the highway.

Odd but interesting stops: POPS, 650 flavors of soda pop and then 1/2 mi. east is historic Red Round Barn built in 1898. Rt. 66, Arcadia, OK. RV parking at both.

Not to be missed stop is Will Rogers museum on Rt. 66, Claremore, OK. RV
parking.

More stops

If you haven't done it yet, try traveling on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel and stopping on the man made island to do a little fishing while you watch for warships leaving harbor. Also, a trip to Conn. to see the Nautilus and the bridge with the gigantic frog on each corner. If you enjoy industry, check out The Henry Ford on Miller Rd. in Dearborn (tours daily) or perhaps the Rouge River Steel Mill (tours rarely.) There's a section of I 15 in Mt. that seems to disappear into the earth that is an experience not to be missed if you dare. bob

Beware of traveling to "cross things off the bucket list" as your #1 priority. For some people, it can lead to burnout and a diminished enjoyment of where you are.

We've had some of our best times with no agenda, staying in the same place for days and just "hanging out". No stress with directions, no gas expen$e, stability and time to enjoy.

Although it's most certainly a lot of fun to see and experience the suggestions mentioned earlier, you won't ever be able to see it ALL, and you might feel like you "failed".

We've learned that interjecting "islands of stability" (agreeing to stay at one location for a week or more) allows us to recharge our batteries and just the fun of having no agenda.

Enjoy! And, if you feel like stopping, STOP!

It's been almost a year since this post was updated. I don't remember if it was on my bucket list but we just attended the Albuquerque Ballooon Feastival. If it wasn't on the list it should have been. That was a great experience - don't think I'll do it again but do highly recommend it.
