Have you ever felt like you had so many choices you couldn’t make a decision? Lately that is how I have been feeling even though I know there is no right answer. We’ve begun to think about what we want to do this winter and I can’t make up my mind and John has no preference. We are working November and December so that is taken care of. We were thinking about the Gulf coast and I have found a spot in Port O’Connor that I made a reservation for the month of January but I’m not entirely sure that is where we want to go. So maybe go there and then head to Florida? But Florida is pricey and we are trying to get caught up financially from an expensive summer. So now we are thinking about returning to the Southwest.
We really enjoyed last winter and there is a lot that we still haven’t done yet. We loved New Mexico State parks and they have a season park pass for their parks that is $225 for out of staters. The pass then makes campsites $4 a night. If we take advantage of the New mexico Parks for about a month or more that might be a good option. There is a lot we would like to do in Northern New Mexico and Arizona but would have to wait until early spring for those areas. We still have not seen the Grand Canyon and Lake Powell and they are all on my list. I would like to spend time in Santa Fe and Taos as well as the Four Corners area and southern Colorado. So many possibilities.
Originally we thought we were headed to the Northwest next summer but now with our son’s wedding this summer we will need to be back in Iowa at some point next summer. They are working on setting a date and that will help us know how much time we have next spring and summer we have until we need to be there. It is funny for me, I don’t need to have a hard and fast schedule and I think that rarely works in this lifestyle but I do like to have a general direction. We may still see if we can find a work camping for the winter spring but because we are committed until January it may be a little more difficult to find.

Sorry for how disjointed this post is but I think it reflects my disjointed thinking. I have so many places I want to see and things I want to do that sometimes my brain is just reeling. We are having a quiet week at Glen Elder State park in Kansas and I am hoping it will calm my brain. We have the area we are in to ourselves and it is a nice break after all the business of visiting with family. We love our family but we also love a little solitude. This will be a good break before a couple months of work. I hope you don’t mind me thinking out loud. This is a good problem to have as problems go so I am certainly not complaining just trying to figure it out.
