    Three 'holidays' planned for next year
    Skiing in the French Alps with the family, hopefully better snow than last season.

    It's one of the big birthdays for me next year, so off to Iceland to hopefully see the Aurora Borealis (something I've always wanted to see)

    And as there is no Glastonbury festival in 2012 (I do count those 5 days in a tent as a holiday each year), I shall be going to the Latitude festival in July, the final day of which is my actual birthday, so that should be quite some weekend!

    Off the top of my head, in no particular order:

    The Dakota Black Hills, plus of course, Mount Rushmore (both Hitchcock and Dan Simmons made excellent use of this landmark); Badlands National Park; Grand Canyon National Park; Yellowstone National Park; Tombstone (Arizona); Monument Valley; Nederland (Colorado) - just had to go there, as I live in Nederland...; Rocky Mountains National Park; Johnson Space Center (Houston); San Antonio -The Alamo- Texas; The Royal Gorge Bridge(Colorado) ; Saguaro National Park (New Mexico).....

    Again, the Utah/Arizona areas were far and away my favorites. I love the rock formations, the colors, the alieness of the landscape...Monument Valley - absolutelu gorgeous!

    We had an absolutely wonderful time - 8000 miles, 12 states, in 4.5 glorious weeks: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and back to Texas.

    One of our best road-trips ever.

    Yes! That's about the only thing we did in Roswell, visit the UFO museum.
    I usually skip museums, but not this one. True, an anuaual piece of history - whatever one believes.
    And, although I love the X-files, especially the alien story thread, I'm not a believer in visitors-from-outer-space.

    Of course, before flying home next week, I'm going to see Cowboys and Aliens...

    It is out there, they just moved it out of that area

    It's great reading about all these folks checking out my hometown of Bangor Maine! I actually grew up about 20 minutes outside of Bangor, but most of my family live in the Bangor /Brewer area. Yep, just drive down West Broadway St. and there's HIS house! lol. Check out the library too, it has a whole wing in the Steve and Tabby name! Downtown Bangor where they filmed The Hitchhiker from Creepshow 2, Camden-Thinner, and the Pet Sematery houses! Going for a visit in August for almost three weeks, been three years, cant wait!!! Maybe I'll see some of you!
    Hope everyone has a great summer vacation whatever you do!!

    If she was the redhead that sits at the end of the bar, then "truth" was a euphemism, and you're probably better off.
