I would prefer an 80 degree trip!



And from living in the Keys, you can stay in Key West instead of flying off to Hawaii!

Don't you know? One can't count on weather!! Good luck... I see places on those maps that would be iffy. Even Alaska can get hot in the summer.

We always moved by elevation. In summer the best is 7,000' - 8,000' or on the West coast.

Sorry but both the 70 degree and the 80 degree trips miss the point, IMHO.

Go for the View and adjust the temperature by the Elevation.

One other note we have normally used for trip planning is Crowds, late April May and early June along with Late/Mid September to Early/Late November just tend to be Great times to Visit the more popular areas, and generally the crowds are down, and the Weather is Great.

One more note - we (well me) love the Mountains, Streams - Rivers - Lakes - Reservoirs and Oceans - lot of spots in between that, well just really are not high on my list of Must See/Visit.

This is the first time in a long while we have traveled in the Summer - the High Season is just too Crowded for me and My Style of travel, works for some just not for me. So we will head back and wait till September to head back out, just easier and More Fun to be Spontaneous and be able to move with the Weather and away from the crowds.

SO if the Mission is just the Temperature ---- well these meet the Mission --- BUT if you want to just get out and See and Enjoy the Beauty of this Amazing Country - use the Seasons and the Elevation and you may just love it. Over the years we have found we Love it when it's a little Cooler, especially at Night.

JMHO,

We just like these quirky little trips. As traveling full timers we are always looking for our next adventure. I like the idea of the 80 since we love Ley West.

Here is another idea. The Trail of Discovery, Lewis and Clark Expedition. Might try this trip next time leaving Florida towards Alaska. Click image for larger version

If you want to be legit on your Lewis and Clark trip, you have to start in Harpers Ferry, VA. Much of their firearms, collapsible boat and other items were make there. Back in 2003, we were there for the kickoff of the 200th Anniversary celebration.

That trip I would do.

I read the entire "The Journals of Lewis and Clark". Tough people back in those days for sure!!!

We've been to Fort Clatsop, near Astoria, Oregon and a few other places on the trail.

It's so weird being the same age as old people.
