#13 ...A Thousand Places

This Christmas one of the things we bought our kids was gift cards to a store in our area called "Half Price Books." They sell discounted new and gently used books. Even though the cards aren't actual money they still burn a hole in a kids pocket just like a shiny new quarter... so over the weekend we took a trip to spend the plastic. Just adjacent to the kids section was the travel section so I set out find a book that I could use to find interesting "off the beaten path" destinations to visit while we caravan across North America in our "soon" to be restored trailer. After as short search I found a book called "1000 places to see before you die." The particular edition I purchased focuses on places in the USA and Canada only. It is filled with well laid out information on just the type places we are looking to visit. It may even become somewhat of a family heirloom... since when I do the math I would need to visit 3 places a month for the balance of my natural life to see all 1000. As with many things in my life, I should've started a little younger. :-)
