After my enjoyable but too short weekend, I decided to look and see how much vacation time I have left this year. 6.5 days!
Therefore, I have proposed to my husband that we take a week-long trip between now and the start of the really cold weather. We'll drive, of course. Neither one of us is willing to put up with the hassles of flying anywhere right now. If I can't take a bottle of water with me on the plane, I ain't flyin'.
Now we just need to decide where we can go that's about a day's drive away.
We've already been to Nashville, Tennessee several times (my husband lived there for 10 years), so that's probably out, although I always love a nice breakfast at the Pancake Pantry.
South Dakota is an option. We've never been there together and neither of us has been at all for many years.
I like Colorado, but I think any trip there should be outdoorsy, and hubby is too much of a city boy for hiking, fishing, etc.
We could always just focus on the trip rather than the destination and plan a route that takes us past a bunch of interesting stuff. I don't know - it's going to be a challenge to decide.
Do you have any suggestions for an interesting stop or destination within 8-10 hours of Kansas City? Help us plan our vacation!
