"The Great Adventure" Chapter 2015 Will Find Me in the Western Half of the United States

a trip by Larry Gorman
From: January 1st 2015
Until: December 31st 2015

My first stop in 2015 will be in south Texas to visit with friends who winter there and then to spend two weeks in Louisville KY during (Kentucky) Derby Week and, particularly, to participate in the Great Steamboat Race between Louisville and Cincinnati. Heading north, I’ll be looping around Lake Michigan with stops to visit numerous lighthouses. I also plan to celebrate my late August birthday with a seven-day rafting trip through Grand Canyon. Then it’s off to Colorado and Utah to visit some national parks and enjoy the fall foliage before returning to Phoenix metro for my VA tune-up. Of course, I’ll be stopping along the way to see state capitols and state Vietnam Veteran Memorials and to visit family and friends.
