About a month or so ago, a friend suggested that we go to Chile, Easter Island and (I think) Argentina. I told her I'd think about it, and think I did. One day it seems like a great idea and the next, not so much. Part of my reluctance to go is the fact that I'd be away for at least 3 weeks. That seems like too much to ask of a cat sitter, especially since I'm lukewarm about the trip.

Yesterday, I saw an email from National Geographic. They have a trip that's only a week long that follows part of the Lewis & Clark Expedition, mostly in Oregon. Then I saw a trip to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and San Francisco being run by Amtrak. They both seem so interesting, more than South America. The best part is that this one is only 11 days.

Judging by my enthusiasm, my decision seems to have been made. Forget about South America, California or Oregon here I come. Now I just have to tell her I'm not going. But, I have to wait until she returns from her trip to Africa. She's such a traveler.

Sounds like you're going with your gut, good choice!

USA trips have more appeal to me, also!

I want to do all the US first.
Which means I'll never travel overseas.

I don't feel badly about it, though

Will you do the Lewis and Clark. I am darn close to that, you know!
