Where is my Wonder Lust?

For some unexplained reason I do not have my regular wonder lust. Don’t get me wrong, I want to travel and see new things but I have this feeling of wanting to stay close to home.

I canceled a planned trip a few weeks ago to San Francisco for lack of interest even though I love the city and nearby Napa Valley.

I don’t plan to attend conference in Washington, DC this summer even though I like some of the attractions in DC. I can stare at mummies for hours at the Smithsonian. Damn I like dried up dead bodies.

I have a voucher at American Airlines for $400 that will expire soon if I don’t book anything and I don’t feel motivated to book anything.

St Croix was fun in September last year. The island is very quiet that time of year. Locals take vacation and mainlanders stay away for fear of hurricanes. I had the island to myself. That might be fun again, go down the opening week of NFL season.

Most of my fun/adventure wonder lust surrounds the RV, the Jeep and the new boat. I have ignored some of the fun things to do just hours from my home, so I plan to take advantage of the sites nearby this summer…if it will ever get warm.

Hmmmmm..I've never been to the Smithsonian, but have always wanted to go. Lots of dried up dead bodies, eh?

Sometimes staying close to home is better than traveling all over anyway...we are always happy to be home!

Staying close to home and exploring can be fun too. Like exploring the local strip clubs? That's always fun. LOL

BTW, you might want to rethink your plans to come back down here. St. Croix is ruint. Did you see today's GoToStCroix headline story?

I'm going to vote with Ali and suggest Canada. Then you both can take a road trip a few hours south and come see me.
