Previous travel experience?

Pretty much non stop for over 35 years.
Can't count how many times I have traveled 1000 miles in a week or less. Sometimes way less. Cool

Lived most of my life many decades overseas, mud floors, very poor "third world" poor conditions, no running water, chop wood for heat, toilet is a bucket, gas or kero lighting, etc.

Means I really appreciate the mod cons but perfectly comfortable without them.

Not much patience with people who take first world conditions for granted.

Grew up in a military family with parents who loved to travel, so we'd move every year for my dads transfers then travel from there constantly. It rubbed off on me and I've never stopped moving, exploring, traveling.

I have always been a Nomad. From days sitting in the back to the GTX, barely able to see out the window, driving to Manitoba from BC, both parents smoked so not the nicest experiences but fun none the less. Then weekends spent of trails and hikes all over the province. Friday's bell meant heading out for a hike, till we arrived monday for class smelling of campfires and unwashed socks. Mom only became concerned when the School would call monday. Happened a few times. Into the military at a young age....Balkans, various American bases in the USA, Hawaii was cool. Three UN postings. Covered most of the lower part of Africa. Loved every minute. Well almost...
Many states in the US with a big Winnie Chieftain my parents bought later in life.
Scandinavia, Europe, Eastern Europe, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Cuba, work or play or a little of both.
Since I retired. Lao (Laos), Cambodia, Malaysia, Republic of Georgia, Russia, Aberbazian, Thailand, and Hong Kong.
A rolling rock collects less moss. It also collects less in its bank account but loads in its experience account.

I've traveled some, to a few countries and different places in the US but mostly East Coast. No meandering road trips, though. Mostly flying somewhere and staying a few days to a week or two.

Thing is, it's the actual driving that will be most foreign to me.  I've never owned a car and my ex-husband always drove whenever we went somewhere.  After 30 years of living in a city where a car isn't necessary, I am not confident, so I will have to brush up on lessons before embarking on a nomadic life (hopefully within the coming year).

Seriously started to travel as divorce therapy when I was in my late 20s, 30+ years ago.
I'd like to give myself a few negative ratings, because I am such a big meanie. The forum won't allow it. Feel free!

As soon as I started working full-time and got a vacation, I hit the road with my dog. Mostly they were trips to OR, and then between AZ and the Canadian border, zigzaging across the Rockies, and one long trip from SoCal to Maine.

But when I start traveling again, I can go more slowly and look at more stuff, since I don't have to be back at some stupid job.

Camped as a young child and then again as a young mother.

Then my brother sold me the 1961 Ford Econoline in 1975. I was pregnant with my youngest so I was kind of restricted to the province that year. By the next year however, the continent was my playground. We travelled all over Ontario and started heading stateside. Most of it was there and back trips but also a lot of roadtrips to Colorado, Texas, Rhode Island etc for the National Van Meets.

25 years ago I hit the road full-time in a van and travelled all over the eastern seaboard for 14 years working art and craft shows and markets.

I tried really hard to settle down for 8 years but as soon as I was free of parent care I was back on the road.

Now that I'm retired I have a whole continent to explore and I'm doing it as fast as I can!!

I have always liked to travel. My family went on a lot of road trip type vacations when I was young, always tent camping out of a car. We went on some great trips though! I found that as an adult, I kept it up. Road trips and camping with my friends. As a consequence, I have been to 49/50 states so I am planning a trip to the last state (Alaska) for next year on my 50th birthday. 50 by 50!

I have traveled quite a bit in Eastern Canada not too much out west. I figure that once I get all 50 states, I might make driving to all of Canadian provinces a goal. I have been to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario so that leaves a lot of places to get to!

I have only been to Mexico once and it was a day trip that was part of a trip to Arizona.

Overseas travel has just been Germany, France, and Italy. One of the reasons why I want to move out of my sticks and bricks is so I can save money for travel in other areas. I have so many places I want to go. Like pretty much all of the places.
