Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! This year has not been without it’s challenges and tragedies but it’s been better than the last one. Astute readers might notice that there wasn’t a video compiled for 2020 because all our plans were cancelled due to travel restrictions. We only made it to Delaware which in fact went under travel ban while we were there in in August. If you’re looking for a 2020 Wrap-Up just watch The Rehoboth Beach Episode, lol!
2021 was much better. The weather was our biggest opponent though. I’m pretty sure rain can be seen in each and everyone of or posts and videos. We added five states to our “camped in” map. We camped at Fishermans Island State Park during Spring Break. Narragansett was rainy and windy but I could see how it could be beautiful. We spent Memorial Day Weekend in New Jersey which was soggy as well. Fun was to be had anyway with lots of crafts and a live band.
Our summer camping trip brought us on a circumnavigation of four states, adding three to our map. We began at Niagara Falls, staying at The Branches of Niagara Camping Resort. Next we went on to The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore staying at Leelanau Pines Campground. From there we crossed The Mackinac Bridge and traversed Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on our way to Wisconsin, land of cheese. Smokey Hollow Campground and it’s enormous on water obstacle course had to be the main attraction for us in The Badger State. Rain dotted Michigan and Wisconsin but there was plenty of beauty in between. On our return home we stayed at The Cleveland/Streetsboro KOA for the Fourth of July and visited The Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Our last trip of this year was to Hershey Park which was final proof that my kids are a bunch of adrenaline junkies! A lot of rain this trip but it worked out greatly (see the previous post).
That makes five National Parks and seventeen states in total for The Traveling Terrells. I think 2022 will be even better despite The Covid Omicron Variant. Our governments are dealing with things a bit smarter and the public wants to move on. If I had one wish it’d be for a cure and I’m sure many would spend their wish on that as well.
Check out our “Highlight Reel” below for all these adventures. If you’d like more information feel free to scroll back through the year on this blog as all of these places and campgrounds have their own videos compiled. Thanks for stopping by and here’s to 2022!
