Although this winter hasn't seemed as gray and foggy this year compared to last, we have had our share of rainy, cold and dank days. It's easy to feel a little cabin bound at times. When this happens I sometimes get frustrated that I can't just cut loose and get away from it all.
I have a "secret bank" for times like that. This "bank" is my little portable Magellan GPS gadget in my car. When I have itchy feet and want to go somewhere, but can't possibly get away, I store the destination address into the GPS gadget. It's like my little get away storage vault. Then when time permits, and I can escape my environment, I jump in the car, push destinations, close my eyes, and poke the screen, pressing "driving instructions" and GO!
Most destinations are within a 100 miles of home. Some are a couple hundred miles away or so. Others still further.
This morning, I sat down with a list of destinations I hope to be taking this spring. All are within 250 miles. They are places I haven't seen blogged about before here on ActiveRain. I banked them all into Magellan. All I need now is warm weather and sunshine, and I'm ready to GO!
The scenes in the slide show above, are mainly around California - other than the picture in Amish Country, Pennsylvania during a buggy ride, a scene from Bryce Canyon Utah, and finishing with a Islamorada, Florida sunset.
