2010 Travels

In 2010 we started the year in Fort Myers Beach, Florida and finished in Lotus, CA for a total of 12,050 miles, a bit more than we have traveled the last few years.  We put 15,878 miles on our Honda CRV, about the same as in 2009.  It was a varied year with almost a month spent in a motel in Indiana while our motorhome was re-sided.  We finally stopped at Branson, MI and Oklahoma City, OK this year and both were worthwhile.
