Itinerary - March, 2014 - January, 2015

We spent the last week or so planning our travel plans.  I'll just say this:  It is so much more work to figure this out than I expected! Selecting RV resorts via the internet is a daunting task.

  1. Really like your itinerary. We are in Oklahoma and use Amarillo as a stop over on our way west. You will have to got to The Big Texan Steak Ranch. Don't worry, you will see billboards for it for hundreds of miles pointing the way. You picked some great spots to visit. We will be in Gunnison, Colorado for the US Pro Challenge bicycle race. Safe travels!

  2. Thanks for the tip on the Big Texan Steak Ranch! Never been to Oklahoma (yet). I am sure it will be in our future travel plans.
