Okay, here I am, in the bottom left half of Arizona. I'll be moving on soon, but which way? What do I want? Eventually, later this summer, I hope to be in Wyoming and Colorado. It's too soon (cold) for that now. Hell, it's still cold anywhere north of, say, Sedona and higher than 4,000 feet. It's still snowing in some places. So how do I fill the next three or four months?
Well, one option is to keep wandering around the desert, gradually working my way north and/or higher, trying to keep in pleasant weather, occasionally experiencing new places and revisiting familiar ones.
Option B might be something resembling last year's summer and autumn travels in reverse. Up the coast to the Pacific Northwest, spend some time with Lou building stuff, then work my way into the Rockies. There would be way less public land, campgrounds would be crowded, and gas would cost more. But I really love the Coast.
The reality will probably be some combination of A and B, with constant modifications. Who knows, I might even blow off Colorado and Wyoming and head to Canada. Fortunately, there's nowhere I must be. Except with myself.
